Other mistake: When the bad guys are stealing the drugs and they use the spray to break the lock, they drag the chain off the bars, and if you look closely you can see part of the bar chip off and it's made of wood. (00:08:10)

Other mistake: At the very end of the movie Mike has the bad guy down on the ground and he's got his gun in the guys face, we see a shot looking straight up the gun barrel with Smith's eyes over the top of it. If you look at the barrel of the weapon there is a little point of light at the back of the barrel. This is caused by sunlight shining through the firing pin hole in the back of the chamber showing that the gun has no round in the chamber. (01:46:50)

Other mistake: In the Ether truck chase, Marcus is driving and turning the wheel excessively, however the truck remains on a straight path. (01:07:35)


Other mistake: In the film, Lawrence and Smith's characters are Narcotics detectives with Miami Dade Police. There's no way they should be at any homicide investigations. Narc and homicide are totally two different units within law enforcement, so it's unlikely narcotics units would be at a homicide scene. Being the scene where they're investigating Smith's friend getting killed, and then they stumble across the dead body at the mansion.

Suggested correction: The captain called Mike and Marcus to the scene to help because it appeared related to the missing drugs. They were there to find leads to the missing heroin.


Yes, that could be correct, but the chances of that happening are slim to none. A captain from Narcotics wouldn't even have authorization to call his detectives to a murder scene to help out homicide detectives working a murder. Any information or clues would be collected and shared with other units or agencies if deemed appropriate.

Then you missed the entire premise of the movie.


We're talking about real-life scenarios here, not the fictional script or scenes in the film.

Implausible is not the same as impossible. The movie scenario is implausible. That doesn't make it a mistake.


Other mistake: In the scene where Mike returns to his apartment for the first time since Julie was living there, as they walk towards the elevator Chet says "Hey Mr Lowrey" to Mike then says "Hey Mr Lowrey" to Marcus although Marcus never told him that he was taking Mike's identity.

Continuity mistake: When the two female characters enter the fancy hotel room, they make a point to say they will only be there for a couple of minutes. It is daylight when they go in. The visit is cut short (the one that's supposed to be a few minutes long) because of a gun battle in which one of the women dies and the other escapes. The escaped one gets out through the roof into an evening's sky. There's still light visible, but for a visit that lasts all of 4 minutes, it's far too quick a change. (00:23:00)

Trivia: Pretty much all of the dialog between Martin Lawrence and Will Smith was ad-libbed. The original script can be found here:, as Don Simpson and Jerry Buckheimer thought it would be better and more funny.
