Continuity mistake: In the middle of the film, Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy are following Murphy's car that was in storage for several years and became very dirty. However, earlier in the film long before Murphy's car is picked up in the garage, there is a scene of Nick Nolte driving through the streets of San Francisco with Murphy's dirty car in the scene. It is the exact same scene, used twice.

Suggested correction: Although both shots are very similar, they're different scenes with different cars and the dirty Porsche is nowhere to be seen in the first scene.

At 30:02, Eddie Murphy's car can be seen in traffic 2 cars ahead of Nolte and Murphy. It is the same Porsche with the same dust covering the car.

Nope. Two cars ahead is a green car. Plus all the cars have roofs, and the Porsche doesn't.

Jack: Class isn't something you buy. Look at you, you've got on a 500-dollar suit and you're still a low-life.
Reggie: Yeah, but I look good.

Trivia: In the hilarious fist-fight scene between Nolte and Murphy, they each punch each other the exact same number of times. The fight begins with Murphy landing more punches on Nolte, but then Nolte catches up by the end of the sequence. However, if you count correctly, you'll notice that Nolte is still one punch behind Murphy. That's why once they are both back sitting in the car, about to drive off, Nolte suddenly lands one last knuckle sandwich squarely on Murphy's jaw - now they are even.
