Monster picture

Revealing mistake: How on Earth can Selby get those skin tight T-shirts over that huge cast on her arm? They cannot possibly stretch any more than they already are - look at the scene where she and Eileen are checking the mail. There is no way that sleeve would fit over the cast without ripping! It is well beyond the capacity of that tight T-shirt to stretch to that extent! Obviously Christina Ricci had the cast fitted after she was in costume.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Jalil and Smokey are talking on the race track, after Jalil wipes out in his race: if you look behind Jalil when Smokey leaves, you can see that the man sweeping the floor in the stands isn't actually sweeping at all - his broom is inches above the ground and he is simply sweeping air.

Basic picture

Revealing mistake: In one of the flashback scenes at the "bunker", a number of the shots fired pierce the sheet metal roof. When they show these holes, you can see fairly bright light coming through. This scene was supposed to be in the jungle during the night. There shouldn't be light streaming in; moonlight is not that bright. It was obviously artificial light used to enhance the scene.

Revealing mistake: When Martin Lawrence was trying to get into his car after he supposedly locked the keys in it, you can see in the shot from inside the car that the door was unlocked.
