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: 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: 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: 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 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)
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 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 Carter is fighting Zhang Ziyi, after she stabs him in the chest with her sword and pushes Carter and the statue over, you can see that the statue is holding a plain wooden dowel. It doesn't have a sharp blade on it that you see in the next shot when it springs up and knocks her out. (01:13:40)
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 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: 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.
