Rush Hour 2

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)

Factual error: After the first shot of Carter as he is walking up the stairs of the building with the bamboo scaffolding, the New York Life Building is in the background. This scene is supposed to take place in China. (Scenes were actually shot in Hong Kong, China, but the NY Life Building has famous distinctive architecture.)

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)

Other mistake: When Carter and Lee go into the nightclub and talk to the hostess, watch closely, you'll see Lee walk into Carter's shoulder momentarily and then pull his head back quickly, before walking off.

Other mistake: When Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan are fighting in the massage parlour, Chris Tucker is able to fight and do all sorts of moves with only a towel wrapped around his waist that magically never falls off. (00:18:30 - 00:20:20)

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)

Visible crew/equipment: When Carter and Lee are sitting in Carter's black Corvette, Carter says, "Lee, Snoopy is six inches taller than you," and you can faintly see the reflection of the boom mic in the windshield on Carter's side of the car.

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)

Visible crew/equipment: Lee is hiding out in the back of the bar at the beginning while Carter is on the stage. Lee's cover is blown and you see him walk into the restroom. A camera man is reflected in the mirror.

Kevin Brown

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.

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)


Revealing mistake: When Lee and Carter are left hanging on the Chinese bamboo, Lee says, "It's very strong." Look closely at Carter's left arm, there is a safety wire running from the bamboo, down Carter's sleeve.

Continuity mistake: When Jackie Chan is in his car after he thinks Chris Tucker is dead he plays the P. Diddy song 'Ill be missing you'. When he makes a call to the man it's at the start of the song. When the camera switches back to Chan at least a minute of the song has passed and when it switches back after going to that man again its near the end of the song in about 20 seconds.

Continuity mistake: When Carter and Lee meets on the yacht some guards comes and tells Ricky Tan is waiting for them. Carter lifts up his arms fighting style. When it cuts his arms has changed position. (00:31:55)


Continuity mistake: When Lee asks the Chinese man behind the desk where 'Zeen' is he runs off. He then goes through a door and then through another door and you see him run into the yard outside. But when the shot changes to the yard you see him run through the second door again.

Carter: Now gimme a hundred-thousand in chips, and a diet pepsi and some hot wings!

Trivia: In the scene where Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan are running on the highway with trash can lids covering their unmentionables, they really had to do that. There was no way to close the highway so they had to run on the highway with actual people in the cars....not just extras or empty cars.
