Rat Race

Corrected entry: If you watch the film with English subtitles, then there is a spelling mistake when Enrico is in the van with Wayne. Wayne says "We'll take a peek at it" but peek is spelled peak, meaning the top of something.

Correction: I watched this part with the subtitles on, but I couldn't see any spelling mistakes in it.


Corrected entry: When Zack and Enrico are standing in front of the electric fence, Enrico tricks Zack into looking away, and then runs and jumps onto the train, while Zack sort of runs after him. In that shot, you can see no fence, but when it cuts back to Zack, he's standing right behind the fence again.

Correction: There is a gap in the fence which I noticed a few times during this scene. The gap is to the left of the section with the warning sign. Enrico runs through this gap to escape from Zach.

Corrected entry: When the two brothers, Blaine & Duane, are chasing the hardware guy who stole their key, Blaine goes onto the car's hood while Duane drives. When he's on the hood, he accidentally tears off the hood ornament. But later in the scene, the hood ornament is attached again.

Correction: Blaine never removes the hood ornament; he just grabs it for support.

Corrected entry: After Wayne Knight hits Rowan Atkinson with his van, he checks to see if he's okay. As he says "Hey buddy. You Okay?" watch the cars that pass by. You can see people watching the filming.

Correction: This shot is right after the accident, so it is possible they were checking if every thing was OK.

Corrected entry: When Cuba Gooding is convincing Marty the bus driver to give him his uniform, he only takes his pants, jacket and hat. At a later time right before the Lucy look-a-likes chase him, he has socks which the cab driver took from him and he has a white shirt which again he never took from the bus driver. (01:23:14)

Correction: It's likely that he found a way to make Marty give him the shirt and socks (and shoes). Just because it doesn't show him getting them doesn't mean he didn't.

Continuity mistake: When Tracy visits her boyfriend in the helicopter, she starts to throw random objects at his truck. Watch her first throw where she cracks the back window, you'll notice that the front bonnet is dented although nothing has hit the bonnet yet. If you believe something might have been thrown before that, when she throws the second and third object there is no dent where that one was. (00:46:25)
