Corrected entry: On the Lucy bus, one Lucy throws a cigarette out of the window which then flies out in the air and then through another open window, into another Lucy's hair. However in the next shot as the Lucy's bat the Lucy whose hair is on fire with handbags, all the windows beside the on-fire Lucy are now closed, despite there being an open one seconds earlier.
Corrected entry: An entire herd of Holstein milkers grazing in a New Mexico pasture? I don't think so...
Corrected entry: Cuba screwed up an NFL game. The season runs from August. However, in the scene with Whoopi and her mother, they are talking about Mother's Day, which is in May. And she talks about shipping meaning the product is going into the store now or very soon.
Corrected entry: When the brothers meet the pierced girl, their cars line up. However, in the long shot just before, we can see that it is a two lane road. For the scene to be correct, the girls would have had to be in the head-on lane when the guys pulled up. Possible, but we can see traffic passing in the opposite direction unimpeded. If they were in the other lane, there would be honking at the very least.
Corrected entry: Blaine and Duane pass the Barbie Museum on their way to Silver City, and Blaine identifies Randy's car. However, they never saw Randy's car and wouldn't know what it looked like.
Corrected entry: Surely Mr. Grisham would have known Vicky had the money? Grisham was waiting by the locker, and would have noticed anyone opening it, and leaving with a large red bag. Vicky couldn't have gotten there before Grisham, because he claimed he brought her along.
Corrected entry: When Enrico gets hit by Wayne in Las Vegas, Wayne tells Enrico that he is headed for El Paso and that Silver City is on the way. The only way into Silver City from Las Vegas is on Highway 180. It would make more sense for Wayne to take the Interstate to El Paso [less changing of roads] rather than make many changes on smaller highways to drop Enrico off in Silver City - especially with his precious cargo [the heart] being transported and time being a factor.
Corrected entry: When Nick used the slot machine at the beginning, he received TWO of the gold coins. Neville Sinclaire said later that he picked seven people for the race (and ultimately, there would be five others joining them all, including the Pear family, Vera's daughter Merrill, the other Cody brother, and Tracy), but this means there were only seven coins placed in seven slot machines. So why was there an extra coin?redbaron2000
Corrected entry: In the barf scene at the end on the private jet, Mr. Konichi barfs first. However, the bag is about an inch away from his mouth and he vomits nothing.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Owen Templton is at the bar and the news reader is telling us about the game, you see the picture of Owen's face with 'loser' stamped across his face is to the right of the news reader, but in the next shot it has moved to the left of the news reader.
Corrected entry: The rocket car technicians get excited when the rocket car breaks the old speed record, the problem is, you need two consecutive passes within an hour with an average speed to set a record. They would not be excited about how fast the car went, they would be concerned about getting the multi-million dollar vehicle back.Sol Parker
Corrected entry: Jon Lovitz and his family were going to the Barbie museum (mostly to pacify the daughter, as it was pretty out-of-the-way), and had to take a detour. The two brothers Blaine and Duane happened to pass the Lovitz family van outside the Barbie museum and hence sabotaged it, but wait - why were the brothers going down that direction anyway? Even if they were heading on the same route to get to Silver City, why would they also take the same detour?redbaron2000
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film John Cleese has no way of knowing that the planes are going to go down, so how does he manage to get his assistant to the train station before the contestants arrive at the end? Even the fastest helicopter would not have been able to cover the 560 miles in the 10-20 minutes Grisham did it in. A fighter jet couldn't do it. We know it is a very short length of time because a) we can see the radar blips on the screen are very close to the target when Grisham is sent and b) Enrico's train just announced that the next stop was Silver City (even accounting for longer distances between stations, it appears to be relatively short).
Corrected entry: Before Cuba Gooding Jr. gets chased by the Lucy look alikes he takes off his outer clothing. If he is running around in his undershirt and boxers where is he keeping the key? I never saw the key in his hand either.
Corrected entry: When the police cars petrol is drained and the car begins to stop the siren slows and shuts off. This shouldn't happen as the siren is powered by the cars battery.
Corrected entry: In the scene towards the beginning of the film when Cuba Gooding's character pulls on the slot machine handle to win the token which enters him the rat race, you can hear the machine's little "winning chime" before the slot wheels stop spinning.
Corrected entry: When Zack the lifeline driver electrocutes himself on the fence and the heart starts beating again, the pumps you hear don't match with the heart pumping.
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.
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.
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.
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.
