I have seen both versions and the slip-up occurs in both. It is a lot less noticeable in the uncut version, but if you stare at the cup the whole time, you'll definitely see it.

In the Swedish (European) version of the movie it is a clear cup. But they made one version with a blue cup just in case. I guess that it was too much for the American viewers to se the sperm. :) Anyway.. It's all explained on the alternative sound-track on the DVD. The one when they comment the movie.

I have heard that the blue cup is there to hide the milky contents of the drink. The original version had to be edited for video because the spunk in the cup was too much for the rating. Thats just what I heard...

I haven't seen the movie in a long while, but the girl Stifler was hitting on was carrying a cup, could this be the blue cup in the scene? Stifler took the cup from her set it down next to the 'other' one and then grabbed the 'other' one when he took a swig.

Starky27 is wrong. She specifically says that she left her beer downstairs.

Well, I've seen this movie at least 5 million times, well not really, but pretty darn close to it, and the slip up is definitely there. I noticed it the first time I saw it in theaters. Then, I bought both the cut and uncut version. It's so funny, if you slow it down, frame by frame, you can actually see the cup being blue one second, and without changing views at all, it's suddenly clear. It's just amazing that the editors let this scene go. Oh well.

The difference between the uncut version and the released version? Editing rips it up once. Then cencors do their dirty work. After that, it goes back to editing again. This process has been known to happen up to hundreds of times. Believe it or not it depends on how big the director/procuders' name is in the industry, as to what makes it onto the screen. I can vouch for this first hand. Like it or not, their are a lot of mistakes in the film. However, considering the budget they worked with, I think it was, (and is) better than any of the CamsSpielsBergs crap lately. It just goes to show you, make your name on a low budget the first time and after that you can name your budget on special effects!

It's in both versions. I've seen them both many times. One of them you have to look a little closer than the other, but it's there. One of the most obvious mistakes I've ever seen!

You are mistaken. She sits down on the bed and realizes she FORGOT her drink downstairs, and to keep her in the room Stifler hands her the one with the surprise in it. As they talk she almost drinks it, then they talk more and he picks it up and almost drinks it, as they switch back and forth that's when the cup changes. It is very obvious if you are watching for it in the cut version, I actually noticed it on my own when watching the film on VHS. However on the DVD version I looked for it but couldn't find it and that was the uncut version, so though someone said it's there I couldn't see it and I looked for a while over and over... Either way there is only ONE cup in the room and Stifler ends up drinking from it in the end, but it goes back and forth from her holding it to eventually him holding it. Watch the movie if you don't believe me... D2.

If you get the special uncut edition, and go to after the movie to the outakes, you see the blue cup is there more often than in the movie.

When they were shooting this they expirimented which cup would be better for the shot they couldn't decide so they told the editor (guy who edits) to pick which one he liked, so he just put them both in
