Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Nicholas Cage is trying to retrieve a baby from under the crib, when the other baby falls on him, you can see a hand holding it.

Visible crew/equipment: During Hi's dream sequence where he describes the lone biker from hell, at several points you can see the shadow of the camera car on the road and on the bottom left of the screen before the rabbit gets a grenade thrown at it. This is visible on the VHS version.

Visible crew/equipment: When the cop car is racing down the road during the bank robbery, the car passes over a taped X in the road. Presumably this was a mark for another scene.

Continuity mistake: When Hi, Gale and Evelle are sitting in the trailer talking about robbing the bank, watch the newspaper on Hi's lap. It goes from being folded to being fully opened in his hands between shots.
