Best comedy movie mistakes of 1997
Audio problem: When Will Smith is looking at the two space ships at the MIB headquarters, if you look in the background Zed and K are there typing on the computer. But if you look closer you can tell that they're not even touching the keyboard and the sounds are just added into the movie.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when Romy reunites with Heather Moony, Heather tells Romy that she invented the cigarette which she is smoking and takes a puff to show how fast it burns down, and the cigarette burns to the butt. But in the next scene her cigarette is still to its half-way point.
Continuity mistake: When Jules is leaning against Michael's hotel door she is smoking a cigarette. When he opens the door she falls back and ash from the cigarette falls on her hair. Two shots later it is gone and her hair is rearranged while she is still on the floor. Then the ash reappears a few shots later.
Continuity mistake: The whole big prison bus escape scene revolves around Chris Tucker being handcuffed to the French guy, but when Frenchy's friend arrives in the bus he stands up and hugs him while the handcuff is shown completely unlocked from Tucker's hand. In the next shot and the entire next scene they are still handcuffed together.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Clark is driving down the street looking at the map, there are 4 kids roller blading in the street. In one shot, one of the kids jumps onto a parkway lawn to avoid being hit by Clark's bad driving. Next shot, when they pan back to the kids, all 4 are still on the street.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Howard supposedly has radio sex with that blonde woman, it flashes to other locations where people are listening, including one with police officers standing by what are clearly early to middle 1990s Ford Crown Victorias. Howard did the stint in the mid 1980s.
Visible crew/equipment: Early in the movie, Melvin walks for the first time to the restaurant in which Carol works. As Melvin turns the corner on the sidewalk and walks towards the camera, he is surrounded by extras playing people he must dodge. If you look in the center and right background, you will see New York spectators standing in the middle of the street, watching the movie being made.
Continuity mistake: J.T.T. is supposedly "getting back" at his brothers by scrubbing their toothbrushes in the toilet. He scrubs the green and yellow brushes quite vigorously inside the toilet bowl. Later on, when the three boys are brushing their teeth, J.T.T. is using one of the brushes that he put in the toilet.
Continuity mistake: After Nick becomes a hero, he wears a cast on his right arm. However, when he and Kate go to dinner with Kate's boss, Nick's cast mysteriously disappears for one shot. They are sitting at the table at the beginning of the dinner and Nick picks up a glass with his right hand, with no cast. The next time you see Nick, he has a cast on his right arm again.
