Continuity mistake: When Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker first arrive at the museum/fundraiser, Jackie Chan's hair is the same as it was throughout the movie - longish in the back and moussed/gelled back. As the scenes at the museum progress into the showdown with Jun Tao, all of a sudden, Jackie Chan's hair is a lot shorter.

Continuity mistake: In the scene were Sang is running away from Jackie Chan after the building, you can clearly see that he doesn't have the scar he got from the little girl in the beginning of the movie.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film in the scene where Chris Tucker is shooting at the Jaguar with C4 in the trunk. Different screen shots have the driver's window up and then down to hide the stunt driver or make the actor visible, whichever is necessary at the time.

Continuity mistake: During the fight scene at the Foo Chow restaurant, Tucker and Chan join hands while beating up the bad guys. They stop for a moment to look at their handiwork and their hands are still joined, then the camera cuts to a different angle and their hands are nowhere near each other.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Carter shot Sang and then said, "Wipe ya'self off man, you dead..", Sang blinked his left eye. If they're dead, aren't they NOT supposed to move? (01:22:15)

Continuity mistake: Just before Jackie Chan falls at the end of the movie you can see that there are a number of bank notes on the banner. Subsequent shots of him falling and being caught on the banner by Chris Tucker show there to be no bank notes on the banner at all.

Continuity mistake: When Thomas (aka Juntao) and Lee are fighting in the ceiling beams near the end of the movie, Thomas's briefcase flies open when he is trying to get Lee to let go. You see a lot of money explode out of the briefcase, and the briefcase falls to the ground. When the shot changes to a semi-bird's-eye view of the floor, the money appears to be all on the floor already. However, when the shot changes back, you see bills flitting about behind Thomas. This happens several times.

Continuity mistake: While entering a front door, the view of the Corvette is in the background of the opening. It shows the car with wire wheels. Later in the movie, this same car, which Chris Tucker is driving all over town has mag wheels on it.

Continuity mistake: After Carter and Lee enter Azteca Pool Billiards near the beginning, Carter busts the old man for having "cigga-weed". Watch the joint in Carter's hand as he gives the old man a hard time, it changes shape and becomes longer between shots.


Continuity mistake: In the big fight seen in the museum Jackie is holding up a large vase while 2 bad guys are punching him. Jackie sees one of those pole things that hold the velvet ropes and wraps his leg around it. When he does you can clearly see that the the pole is right side up, then when he kicks his leg up to hit the bad guy in the face is it upside down. (01:19:15)

Continuity mistake: Jackie is handcuffed to the steering wheel with handcuffs made by Smith and Wesson. In the next scene he wears handcuffs made by Peerless.

Continuity mistake: When Carter tries to shoot Sang's getaway car after he and Lee fall through the roof, one can notice they used three different takes for the shooting scene (look at Lee during the three 'takes'). (00:46:08)

When Lee falls in the same place a few seconds later, he picks up the detonator which is now in the middle of the bridge. (00:45:40)

Continuity mistake: At one point when Lee and Carter are dancing, Carter's hands are both up. Shot changes and his left hand is now down- there wasn't any time for him to move it.

Continuity mistake: When Chris Tucker is calling his policewoman friend, the phone rings at her house, she picks up the phone and presses the on button, but the phone makes a sound that means it didn't turn on, however she keeps talking like it turned on.
