When the robots are herding the girlfriends out just before knocking them out with their breath, you can see two sets of clothes in the bottom left corner if you watch closely.

City Slickers picture

Kuffs (1991)

Kuffs picture

Continuity mistake: When the jumper shoots Kuffs before going off the ledge, pay attention to the trajectory of the bullet fired from the gun and then to the bullet wound that Kuffs shows us in the taxi cab. They don't match. If the bullet got him where it was supposed to, he would've been hit in the hip/upper thigh area, instead of the side of his abdomen like in the cab.

Hudson Hawk picture

Continuity mistake: When Tommy and Darwin Mayflower are in the back of the limo, Darwin dives out and the door slams immediately before Tommy has time to catch it. The shot changes to outside the limo and Darwin is just now jumping from the limo. It is not just the same shot from a different angle because this time the door stays open much longer, long enough for the limo to drive out of the shot. From this angle there would have been more than enough time for Tommy to grab the door.
