Continuity mistake: At the party scene in the early minutes of the movie, the bad guy who calls the two women to his place to "party" is shot once in the knee. Blood spurts and a gaping hole is made in his dark blue pant's leg by the bullet. Seconds earlier, the black hooker is shot three times. Where are the three gaping holes and blood on her solid white dress? Ah, there are none. (00:26:00)

Continuity mistake: During the shoot-out in the lobby of Mike's apartment building, Chet calls 911 to report the event. In the first shot of him he is holding two dogs and in the next shot he is only holding one dog. (01:34:33)

Visible crew/equipment: When Marcus is driving and Mike is saying that he is driving slow enough to drive Miss Daisy, when the camera is facing them from the driver's side you can see where the camera is attached to the driver's door.

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)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when Martin Lawrence is in bed with his wife, he wakes up on the left side of the bed and leans over turn the alarm off.
