Continuity mistake: When Joe, the Heisman candidate quarterback, jumps his Harley off of a dirt cliff, one camera angle is from below as the bike is in the air. The angle clearly shows the bike is different from the Harley he started and finished with. Most noticeable is the fact that the tyres on the stunt bike are knobby enduro tyres, but later when the bike is stopped, you can see the smooth street tyres are back again.
Continuity mistake: Just before the Breeders Cup the horse is upset and Kurt Russell puts his hands on either side of her face to see what she is "thinking". First his fingers are practically in her eyeball and when the shot changes his hand is back by her jaw. This happens to quickly to be a natural movement.
Continuity mistake: At the very start of the tournament, when we see all the platters break at the same time (wide shot showing all tables), we see Eddie's table is second from the left and three tables up. Notice the referee one table behind Eddie. In the close shot after the break, we now see that the referee, who was standing still in the wide shot, is now a table further down.Scrappy
Continuity mistake: About 35-40 minutes into the film, Jules and Jess are at the bus stop. Pinky's future in-laws drive by in the Jaguar with nothing in front of them. When the camera shot moves back as they enter the bend, another car has appeared in front of them.
Continuity mistake: In one scene, in the middle of the movie, one of the older players is sitting in a chair near the basketball court, and he is wearing sweat pants, white ones I believe. He is then asked to come in to play by Eddie (Whoopi Goldberg). He then stands up. But in the next scene he is walking up to the other players on the basketball court taking off a light jacket, but no sweat pants.
Continuity mistake: Right after they decide to become a team, Jim is walking to Hakeem's home and you see a little boy in a green shirt in three different places during the walk. The little boy is seen playing pattycake with a little girl on a car, then you see him running down the street and in the very next frame you see him kneeling at a flower bed.Kimberly Fox
Continuity mistake: As mentioned in a previous error, just before Jake is checked into the Surf Hotel, there is a long scrolling shot that illustrates the surroundings of Jake's room in the hotel. In particular, notice that Nathan's Seafood and Clam Bar is not across the street from Kennedy Fried Chicken. This is contradicted later when a) Jake looks out of his window and sees the Nathan's sign, and b) Jake is seen leaning out of his window above the Kennedy sign.haron
