Continuity mistake: When Martin Short climbs over the hood of the Jeep, he knocks the windshield glass completely out of the frame. A minute later, the glass is installed as normal.

Revealing mistake: When the plane is delayed because the luggage got crushed, the sign changes their flight status to DELAYED. It's obvious that the one that changed is the only row meant to move. The letters are spaced out so that they can flip over but all the other letters have no spaces and actually look like stickers.

Continuity mistake: There is one scene where Martin Short is eating eggs. In one scene the plate is half eaten, then it's complete again, and then once again half eaten.

Other mistake: There is a scene where Danny Glover is driving a car with Martin Short in the passenger side seat. At several points, Glover turns the wheel to the right and left, yet the car remains in a straight course.

Continuity mistake: When Eugene goes to sit in the broken chair, the chairs are all pretty much pushed in. Then when it cuts to him sitting, his chair is pulled out much more, without him doing anything. (00:13:00)

Other mistake: When Eugene, Raymond, and Frank Grimes get back into the car, Raymond and Frank get in the back seat, with Eugene in the driver's seat. During the conversation before taking off, Eugene keeps looking up and to the right to look at Raymond and Frank in the rearview mirror. However, there is no rearview mirror.


Continuity mistake: When Eugene and Raymond are at the hotel bar, talking about the girl in red, Raymond is holding his drink as he leans back, but the next shot the drink is on the table.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Martin Short is in the clinic, he is talking to a fellow patient.

Then the next shot (less than a second later) the Spaniard is lying down with no cigarette.

Continuity mistake: When the car falls off the cliff, which is supposed to be in the middle of the jungle, you can see the paved road and power lines when the car hits the bottom. (01:26:13)
