Continuity mistake: In the scene in the airport after Maverick quits, Charlie tells him, "you've got that maneuver down real well," and it cuts to a close-up of Maverick. Movement is seen in the shiny wall behind him, which is a reflection of Charlie standing up. It cuts to a wide shot of both of them seated. Then she stands up to say, "So long, Pete Mitchell."

Question: The final showdown between Utah and Bodhi was shot at Bells Beach, but was the wave footage also shot there? I'm especially interested in the closeups. Waves of that size and strength are not commonplace, and no surfer (save Eddie Aikau) would even attempt to tackle such a monster set.
Answer: No part of the film was shot anywhere near Bells Beach. It is not even Australia.

Factual error: There is no way Utah could have gotten information about Tyler's parents' death, let alone the city and year, from the computer he was using at the FBI office. He would have had to run a separate search for that information using other sources. That type of personal information is not contained in any crime information database.

Continuity mistake: In the scene with Edie and the shotgun, there is a shot of Jack eating cereal. He pauses in amazement, with the spoon halfway to his mouth, then it cuts away and when it cuts back to him, he is still frozen in shock, but there is a bigger mound of cereal on the spoon.

Question: If Det. Graham had already identified his brother's body at the crime scene, why would it have been necessary for his mother to have to do so at the morgue, especially since it was very traumatic for her?
Answer: Since he was directly involved with the investigation, to identify the body would have been a conflict of interest. Therefore he had to notify the next of kin beyond himself.

Revealing mistake: When Daniel (the locksmith) goes home, the lamp next to his daughter's bed is on. After he finally tucks her in, he puts his finger on the light switch on the wall, but it is already in the "off" position. He doesn't flip the switch in either direction, but you hear an audible click, and the lights go out as if the lamp was controlled by the switch.

Continuity mistake: When Kid's mom brings over the backpack with the video games in it, he tries to give her money. She puts her hand in his and tells him to keep it. Suddenly, there is wide shot where they are standing farther apart with their hands at their sides. Then back to the close-up, which is the same as before and her hand is still in his.

Audio problem: When they are standing in Mikey's kitchen looking at the map, all you can see is their eyes above the top of the map. Right before it cuts away to the Cyndi Lauper video, the map moves down just enough to see Chunk saying something, but there is no accompanying audio.

Audio problem: During the wild boar hunt, they are interrupted by Aleander who says, "Prince Frederick of Saxony. He refuses to surrender Luther to you, Your Holiness," but nothing matches his lip movements. He utters a couple of syllables, at most, out of sync with the two full sentences heard in the movie. (English DVD version).
