Corrected entry: The star on Sheriff Justice's car indicates that he is the Sheriff of Montague County Texas. Texarkana is in Bowie County Texas, which is approximately 245 miles east of Montague County.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Snowman and the Bandit are deciding a method of using the radio to avoid being heard by the police they decide to "start in the basement, stay on the odd channels, and switch every time.". But obviously throughout the movie the writers either forgot this or Buford caught onto this pretty quickly because everyone seemed to be on the same channel the whole time.
Corrected entry: Toward the beginning, when Sheriff Justice is chewing out the State Trooper. When the Sheriff is poking the trooper in the chest, first backing the trooper out into the center of the road, then backing him off to the side of the road, first there is a long line of cars waiting behind the trooper's cruiser, then they're not there.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the police car drives off into the lake, the Bandit turns right off the highway and onto the dirt road. But when he comes back he turns left when he gets on the highway, which would send him right back where he came from. But still he comes up from the semi's rear when he catches up with Cletus.
Corrected entry: When Snowman breaks though the fence near the end, he honks at two guys standing there. Only one turns around to see the truck coming for them, the other just starts running when he hears the horn without seeing the truck or the other guy's reaction.
Corrected entry: When Burt and Sally catch up to Jerry, just before they stop at Ole Miss, Jerry looks at his rearview mirror and says, "Damn again." He sees Burt in the driver's seat, even though Sally is still supposed to be driving - she gets out of the driver's seat when they stop.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, during the song, a train is coming when the bandit slams on his brakes. But he doesn't hit the brakes, instead he stepped on the gas.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bandit is going to jump the bridge, he spins the Trans Am around twice. When the camera angle switches to showing the Bandit step on the brake pedal, a clutch pedal can be seen in the bottom left of the screen. This is strange as all the interior shots of the car show an automatic transmission.
Corrected entry: When the Bandit and Snowman are first driving, and talking on the radio, at the end of transmission Bandit says, "I'm 10-100 on the side." "10-100" means restroom stop. He should have said "10-7 on the side" which means he is out of service, or on standby, not on the air. I didn't see anything about him stopping for a restroom break, and he would have said, "I need to make a 10-100", not "I'm 10-100 on the side."mchaos
Corrected entry: The car that was driven by the Good Witch of the North was most likely used in several different scenes. In the front end damage, you can see her blue car was red before that, and yellow before that. (01:01:25)
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie when the 2 rigs are racing the of the competitor changes from 11 to 21 when they show a different angle of the track.
Corrected entry: The Trans Am's tail lights and rims seems to have an identity problem. All through the movie they change from scene to scene.
Corrected entry: Toward the end, when Snowman's truck comes roaring triumphantly into the fairgrounds, the band is playing "Marching Through Georgia". This is a YANKEE song describing General Sherman's devastating invasion in 1864 and would most emphatically NOT be played in Atlanta to celebrate anything!
