Revealing mistake: During the big fight scene, you can tell easily that Frank is wearing knee pads (try looking when his pant leg is wet). Construction workers will often wear knee pads for work but most often they wear them on the outside of the pants to save the knees of their pants. (00:58:50)

Revealing mistake: After Holly tells Nada that she works at Cable 54, he springs to his feet, and she cracks a glass over his head which dramatically sends him crashing out her bay window, to the bank below. Which would not happen in such a pricey home as hers with the thicker quality glass.

Continuity mistake: In the big fight scene, Roddy Piper and Keith David are wrestling and struggling about and land so the black guy's pants are getting soaking wet. In the very next shot as the fight continues, his pants are dry. (00:58:55)
