Other mistake: In the scene with the last match between DDP and Jimmy King, when Jimmy King is on top of the cage and grabs the belt, he is holding it up. It shows the belt has a nameplate on it saying Jimmy King. If DDP was the champ, wouldn't the nameplate read DDP, or Diamond Dallas Page?

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the match Shawn comes down and gets set on fire. Straight afterwards and during the match there are no scorch marks, but at the end of the match, when King grabs the belt, there are.

Continuity mistake: In the scene with the truck wreck, they show the truck sliding at the wreck. When you see the naked ladies on the grill, the truck has a hood, but in the long views, the truck is a cab-over (no hood).

Continuity mistake: In the final cage match when Gordy enters in his cop outfit, he spears King's son and Goldberg compliments him on his spear. At that moment Gordy takes off his glasses and puts them in his shirt pocket. Moments later when Gordy goes to talk to Shawn, he does the same thing.

Continuity mistake: In Jimmy King's match with Diamond Dallas Page in the beginning of the movie, DDP tosses Jimmy out of the ring through a table. From the ceiling shot of Jimmy going over the top rope, we can see that there is nothing on the table, but when Jimmy goes through the table, there's a bunch of papers and coffee cups on there as if someone was sitting there.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gordy & Shawn are eating their burgers, just before Shawn shows off his wrist strap, Shawn's sleeves are rolled then unrolled in different shots.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, during the triple cage battle between DDP and King, right before King grabs the belt he powerslams DDP through the top tier of the cage. As DDP is falling, there is one shot where he is almost completely vertical, seeming that if he continued on this he would drop squarely on his neck and/or top of the shoulders. But not 2 seconds later he hits the mat and he is completely horizontal, showing that he was most likely dropped from about 1 foot above the camera.

Continuity mistake: When Gordie and Sean are talking to King through the motor home window, the King's hand switches from left to right a couple of times during the scene. (00:39:45 - 00:40:20)


Continuity mistake: When Gordy and Sean are sitting down eating burgers Gordy has some food on his face - in the next camera shot it has gone.

Other mistake: During the scene where Shawn and Gordy are in the van with the nuns, watch Shawn's hands closely, he's not actually playing in time with the sound of the guitar.

Continuity mistake: During the four-post massacre, when they show lead up shots, a couple of the guys are obviously going to land short. But in the final shot, it shows them jumping out a little further.

Sean Dawkins: That's my best friend in the whole world right there... He's not really a cop though.
