Visible crew/equipment: When Carter is fighting Zhang Ziyi, she thrusts a sword into his coat. For a SPLIT SECOND ONLY, there is a shot where a black man is crouched down behind the statue on which Carter is against. You have to pause it quickly in the right place, but he is there looking up at Carter and Zhang Ziyi.
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.
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
Factual error: When Chris and Jackie are stripped butt naked at the freeway, they were in Causeway Bay (on Hong Kong Island). It is impossible for them to go back to the Yau Ma Tei Police Station in Kowloon Peninsula. The only way to get there is by traveling through tunnels or using the ferry. There is no road that you can walk along.
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.
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.
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: 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.
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.
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.
