When their parents place the family home on the market, siblings Maura (Amy Poehler) and Kate (Tina Fey) learn that they have one weekend to clean out the junk from their old bedroom. Unhappy with the news, the recently divorced Maura and her hotheaded sister make plans to throw one final bash to recapture their glory days with their former classmates. As the raging party begins to spiral out of control, the gals soon realize that there may not be a house left to sell once the dust settles.
Continuity When Maura's legs fall through the ceiling from the attic, she kicks her legs repeatedly, losing both shoes. When she's pulled back up into the attic, she is seen barefoot but has her heels back when she falls completely through a second time, though she did not go downstairs to retrieve them.

Factual Mistake The Orlando Police officers wear dark blue uniforms. Not tan ones like in the do film. The OPD Patches they wore are also incorrect. They use to wear brown uniforms but switched to Blue in the late 80s.
Factual Mistake Putting blue paint in to the pool strainer may have allowed blue paint in to the pool, but would not have caused the sprinklers to spray bluish water when they came on late in the movie.
Factual Mistake The Orlando Police cars in the film have an incorrect paint job.
Miscellaneous At Big Lots, several blue first aid kits are bought. During a later scene, on the table is 1 blue first aid kit 1 white one that is a Target private label brand first aid kit. Since the house was cleared of items prior to the sisters coming in to the house this could not have been there. Also that private brand kit did not exist when the girls would have lived there, they could not have gotten it from their room.
