Rat Race
Rat Race mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the two brothers are frantically trying to get out of the car because the monster truck is barreling toward them (in slo-mo), you will notice that the tongue ring is missing from the one brother's tongue. Odd mistake seeing as his character is centered around the tongue ring.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: When Rowan Atkinson is riding in the train, near the end of the film, he is looking out the window. He is looking forward, then quickly looks backwards. He does this several times in a row, as if trying to see things quickly as the train passes them. But, when the camera pulls back, Rowan's back is facing the direction the train is moving, thus he was looking the wrong way! You can tell by the way the scenery is moving as you look through the window.

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.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: In the beginning of the movie when the main character is watching ESPN. The footage of the Dallas game, where the referee (Cuba Gooding) messes up the coin toss, you clearly see the sky right over the crowd in the stadium. The ESPN people say it was in Dallas. In Dallas, the Cowboys play in a dome. The hole of the dome is in the center of the roof and the sky would not have been shot so easily. Also the dome has artificial grass. The footage showed natural grass.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: When it shows Cuba Gooding Jr.'s botched coin flip call, he is wearing a black hat with white stripes. This hat is only for Line Judges, Back Judges, and Umpires in football. If he is doing the coin flip, he should she be wearing a white hat to signify that he is the referee. The referee wears the white hat in every level of football, from high school all the way to the pros.

Continuity mistake: At the Monster Truck Rally, the blue convertible that they are driving has no dents or scratches, it looks perfect. But in the scene before that they are doing nosedives into the dirt while chasing the hot air balloon. You can clearly see the damage then.

xx:xx:xx

Visible crew/equipment: When Blaine is on the hood of the convertible and he looks back and sees that no one is driving the car, the view hole for the person inside the seat who is actually driving the car is clearly visible.

Factual error: The bullet that was fired and travels next to the rocket car defies the laws of physics. Assuming that the bullet was fired parallel to the ground, the bullet should remain in the air for the same length of time as it would take to drop the bullet from the same height. The bullet in this scene remained in the air for a much longer period of time.

Continuity mistake: Tracy throws a wrench and other things onto her (soon-to-be-ex-) boyfriend's truck. Several dents appear, including on the roof. She also drops a can of orange paint which spills up the windshield. However, for the remainder of the movie after this scene (as her boyfriend drives it away and later Tracy throws him out and takes it herself), there isn't a single dent left on the truck. Not just as she chases her boyfriend, but for the rest of the film.

Factual error: As Whoopi Goldberg and her daughter stop the rocket car, the engines on it are clean and shining. After driving through all the brush, not only would they have been very dirty and filled with plants, they would probably have been FODed (Foreign Object Damage) out and quit running long before it ran out of fuel.

Add time

Jason Sieberg

Factual error: Security at the airport must be a little lax if two men are able to cut into the fence and climb the radar tower without being noticed the whole time, making all that noise, etc. Also, when the man in the control tower (with the binoculars) noticed the truck hanging, you'd think that security or police would notified. No-one ever questions them, and in the next scene we see a worker at the "U-Rent-It" car rental, checking his licence. No cops investigate the matter, nor is security called.

xx:xx:xx

Visible crew/equipment: When the rocket car zooms past the repair mans garage and it collapses, you can see a wire running across the outside of the garage, from above the window to behind the petrol pump, and there is a white cable trailed across the road to the left of the garage - in an earlier shot you can clearly see these were not here.

Visible crew/equipment: When Enrico and Zack are searching for the heart, a dog comes along with it in its mouth. In the shot of Enrico saying "hello little doggy, hello there" if you look at the big truck parked on the road, you can see a black wire / cable trailed in front of it. This was not there in a previous shot within the same scene.

Continuity mistake: When Nick and Tracy kiss on the stage at the "Feed the Earth" concert, Tracy has her arm around Nick's chest in one shot, but it's around his neck in the next.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Duane is about to give Blaine his key, he realises it's a fake and he then lifts the other key up, and this on has a chain on it (I think it's the tracker device, which means they still have the key that the key-cutter stole), but in the next closeup the chain has gone from the key.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Tracy is in the helicopter, chasing Sean who's in the truck, look at the chopper's back wings/fins. The bottom one is very short, however during the chase after Tracy yells "I want my five bucks back," the back of the chopper lowers down, and the back bottom wing/fin hits the road - only in this shot it is much longer than it is in all the other shots.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: As everyone is grabbing money from the duffel bag, just before all the lights turn on at the "Feed the World" concert, Merrill is getting money from the bag in one shot, but in the next shot, as the lights turn on, she is now nowhere near the bag, and with money in both hands.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In one shot as Duane and Blaine drive over a big hill, while chasing the key-cutter, if you look at the hot-air balloon, the white rope that hangs from the basket has gone for this shot. Also, throughout the chase scene, the length of the rope differs.

Other mistake: When everyone is on the road leading to Silver City, near the end, about four of them are behind one another on the road. When it cuts to the radar owned by Sinclair, it shows all of the dots (which represent the people) all spread out around the big star which is train station, when in fact the dots should all be in a line behind each other, just like they are in the cars.

Continuity mistake: There is a shot of Blaine as he lays on the Cadillac's roof during the balloon/cow/keymaker/car chase. This shot is specifically for when Blaine snaps the hood ornament off of the Cadillac by accident, then stares at it in his hand. In the next shot of the car, the ornament is back on, and it stays on for the remainder of the scene.

Revealing mistake: At the end whenever we see a shot of the large crowd from the stage point of view look closely.You can see how the image of the crowd has been tiled because people are transparent.

Continuity mistake: When Seth Green and his brother are chasing the keymaker, they fly over two embankments. In both shots, upon impact they break the A-pillar in the car, resulting in the nose of the car pointing upwards and the area directly under the windscreen bent down, common in a stunt like that. In the next shot of them racing along the paddock, the car is perfectly normal.

Deliberate mistake: In the infamous coin toss scene, Cuba's call is disputed. However, it appears that the coin on the ground is in fact in agreement with his call. However, he explains later that they use a special commemorative coin that is hard to read as it may have what appears to be a head on both sides. Therefore, the coin may have had a head come up, but it was agreed that that side would be 'tails'.

Visible crew/equipment: In the wide shot as Duane and Blaine drive up by the pierced girl's red car, you can briefly see a reflector, equipment and some crew reflected in the car. Then when it cuts to a close-up, you can see the reflections in the side of the wing mirror.

Continuity mistake: When Owen is sitting at the bar, and the TV has him featured as "Loser of the Week," the same woman in a blue top, carrying a handbag and blue cardigan walks past him twice.

Continuity mistake: When Vera and Merrill sneak up to the rocket car, and start pretending to present it, there are two men speaking by a stand, which has six microphones standing on it. However when Vera and Merrill start the rocket car up, we see the two men turning round to look, and now two of the microphones are lying down on the wooden stand, and a seventh mike has appeared.

Continuity mistake: When Vera and Merrill enter the tent and start drinking and sucking ice cubes, Merrill's red and black scarf is spread out across her arm/shoulder and is falling out, but it is neatly hanging around in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: When Donald Sinclair and the gamblers are on the private plane, from an exterior view the plane has five, spaced out, circular windows, but in the interiors shot we see the plane has many more windows, which are less spaced out and are now rectangular.

Continuity mistake: As Vera and Merrill drive down the road and then turn right, down the shortcut just past the yellow sign with the graffiti on it, there is no front licence plate on the car. However, as the car rolls down the hill, there is a white plate fixed on.

Continuity mistake: When Nick and his friend are talking in the hotel lobby about breaking rules, the extras in the background change in every shot, some passing twice, some jumping location, others appearing and disappearing.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: The knot in the rope and the way the rope is tied around the bumper of Duane's car, in the scene where they break the radar, changes between shots.

Revealing mistake: When Enrico is putting the heart back into the bag, but it flies out of the window, as Zack pulls the van to a halt, you can see fresh tyre marks on the road, in the exact same place, from a previous take.

Continuity mistake: When the bikers destroy Hitler's car, they break off the front left flag. Later, when Hitler's car crashes into the WWII veteran convention, the flag is back. You can also see it is back later when the people come to collect it from the diner car park.

Visible crew/equipment: When Tracy throws the fire extinguisher into Sean's truck, and it goes off, sending CO2 gas everywhere, you can see the thin black tube running across the pavement, to under the car, presumably used to spray the gas out of. That tube wasn't there earlier!

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When the rope tied around the radar pulls Duane's truck forward, in a wide shot the sky is crystal blue and totally clear. Once the truck has been pulled to the top of the tower moments later, in another wide shot the sky is now filled with clouds.

Continuity mistake: When Duane and Blaine are chasing the key-cutter who stole their key, they drive over the same hill and land twice - note the same tree stump they pass twice.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: Throughout the chase-after-the-hot-air-balloon scene, the hood of the blue car that Blaine and Duane drive differs from dusty to sparkling clean from shots.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: Duane sprays the key-cutter's face with milk from the cow's udder, and his face is wet, and covered in white milk, but in the next shot the white milk has gone.

Continuity mistake: When Donald Sinclair explains the race, he explains that they have 1 in 6 chance of winning, same as a die roll, then he rolls the die. Later in the scene, the die has vanished without anyone moving it.

Deliberate mistake: When everyone is racing down the stairs to get to their cars/the airport, there is a shot from beneath glass as someone's sneaker rushes across the landing between floors. The landings were all metal platforms.

Other mistake: When Hitler's car is getting destroyed, the shot of the muffler falling off the truck is the exact same shot used for when Rowan Atkinson and Wayne Knight were in the van. This is most notable because the bikes disappear and the car isn't even Hitler's car, it's a white van.

Other mistake: When Tracey is going crazy in the helicopter, she shouts, 'I'll ram this helicopter right down your throat', but on the subtitles it says, 'I'll ram this mother f**ker right down your throat'.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Tracy's hairband keeps changing colour throughout the movie. At the airport its a white scrunchy and in the helicopter it starts off black, and then goes to light brown.
