Continuity mistake: When Carter and Zhang Ziyi are fighting, Carter is wearing alligator skin shoes (brown). However, when Ziyi thrusts the sword at Carter and Carter falls back on a chair raising his feet, you see him wearing black running shoes with a white sole.
Continuity mistake: In the police station, just before the explosion that supposedly kills Carter, we see Jackie with his shirt untucked on his way to his office. As he falls to the ground after the explosion his shirt is miraculously tucked in. (00:22:25 - 00:24:00)
Continuity mistake: When Carter is singing karaoke, first you see the girls beginning to join him on stage. In the next scene (right after the scene with Inspector Lee's reaction to Carter singing), you see Carter dancing with a DIFFERENT group of girls (it lasts a couple of seconds). Then, when Lee is calling out Carter, the original dancers from the first scene are back. Use the tall Chinese girl wearing the pink dress on the right side of the screen as reference in the first scene, then she disappears in the second scene and reappears in the last scene. (00:06:45)
Continuity mistake: When Zhang Ziyi shoots Rosalyn Sanchez in the casino office, Sanchez is facing away from her. You see no blood on her back. Later, when Sanchez falls into Jackie Chan's arms, there is still no entry wound from behind and no blood. When he spins her around, you see a bullet hole in the front of her arm and blood smeared on the front of her arm. (01:10:45 - 01:12:40)
Continuity mistake: When "the Secret Service agent" is fighting Zhang Ziyi in the casino, Ziyi kicks her black platform boot into a cabinet door. A few minutes later Ziyi is fighting Carter in the casino and she does a kick, revealing her now small-heeled boot.
Continuity mistake: When the detectives are in the truck, the first view shows us a little dark sky, and the headlights of the cars are on, but inside the limousine, it's much more clear then outside, and the headlights are off.
Continuity mistake: When Carter is trying to bust the bad guy in the massage parlour there are several bottles of ointments and things on the table next to the bad guy. They switch places in a few shots.
Continuity mistake: At the very end of the film when Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are saying their final good-byes Chris Tucker is wearing the strap to his bag on his left shoulder and if you look you will notice in almost every scene even in the mistakes during the credits the rubber thing on his bag is there and then in the next scene the rubber thing is gone, and during the credits the rubber thing is back but the strap is crooked with the rubber thing there. (01:20:00)
Continuity mistake: When Jackie and Chris are hanging from the bamboo shoot Chris has hold of the shoot in his left arm first then in the next shot it has changed and now he holds it with his right arm. (00:12:45)
Continuity mistake: After Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan have been chucked naked out of the car on to the freeway, they run to the police station to get changed into new clothes. When in this room, they have a little argument with each other and every time the camera pans across to Chris Tucker the clothes on the hangers keep shifting from side to side.
Continuity mistake: When Lee and Carter go to the Reing Plaza, they ask some guy there about some Zing, and the guy run away to Hu Li, but when the detectives talk to her, the guy who ran keeps changing, sometimes he's on the right, and sometimes he's on left.
Continuity mistake: After the detectives get the bag from Isabella, she shows them her badge in her bra, but before they get the bag from her, there's no badge in her bra. (00:39:15 - 00:41:55)
Suggested correction: True we don't see Isabella wearing a badge in her bra when Lee and Carter kick in her door, but when she arrives at the top of the building wearing her robe, she most likely put her badge on before following them.
Continuity mistake: When Carter and Zhang Ziyi are fighting, Ziyi's shoes change from high heeled in the first shot to black running shoes in the shot when she falls from the pool table. The shoes also change to medium heeled while she is on the pool table. (01:12:00 - 01:13:20)
Continuity mistake: When Jackie is hanging from the bamboos at the beggining of the film,the distance between his hands changes from wide open to up close one to another as the camera changes positions. (00:11:30)
Continuity mistake: After Lee and Carter get out of the truck they were tied in, they try to escape through doors. You see Lee pushing on the door and not pulling, which is how Carter got his door open.
Continuity mistake: During the gangster bar scene early in the film, when Carter tells Lee he is a star, one of the girls Carter was dancing with has her hair straight down. After Lee tells him they are in a gangster bar, her hair is suddenly smoothed behind her ear and lying over one shoulder. (00:07:40)
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, in the airport scene, Carter and Lee are saying their goodbyes. IF you look over Carter's shoulder, you see a girl in a green sweater with white sleeves walking away from him, the scene switches back to Lee, then when it switches back to Carter, you see her starting back at the exact same spot walking back again. This happens several times.
Continuity mistake: When Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are back in L.A. and go to the Chinese restaurant to see Kenny (Don Cheadle), Kenny's hair is pulled back in a pony tail. The position of the pony tail changes several times throughout the scene - sometimes it's over his right shoulder, sometimes it's hanging down his back. (00:45:50)
Continuity mistake: When Lee and Carter are buying clothes from the guy at the store, a woman in black pants starts to come down the stairs behind him, but after the camera turns away and cuts back to him, the woman that was coming down the stairs has disappeared. (00:57:15)
Continuity mistake: Carter and Lee enter the back parking lot witnessing Zhang Ziyi and crew hauling items into the truck. The shot where Ziyi, Carter and Lee confront each other, the lighting shows pimples on her forehead. The next continuing scene where she is in the back of the limo on the highway, her forehead is clear of pimples.
