New this month Other mistake: Vic and Stu get into a shoot out inside the animal hospital with some thugs, guns firing all over the place. The building is full of animals like dogs and cats and parrots. However, the animals stay completely calm and quiet during the entire gun fight and seem unaffected by the rapid, very loud banging of gun fire. Even right after it, a cat that just had it's tail stepped on sits on a dead body and meows like nothing happened. This is completely uncharacteristic of how animals would act to loud gunfire in an enclosed building, especially in a vet's. (00:45:00)

New this month Continuity mistake: Stu picks up a guy after he's first introduced, and tells him to stop calling him "Stuber." In the first shot, Stu is looking in the other guy's direction, but when the camera cuts to a different angle suddenly Stu is looking straight ahead. (00:06:43)

New this month Continuity mistake: When Nicole is telling Stu that he might as well call his gym "Old Hag Bikes", he is looking at her and smiling. It cuts to a close up of him and suddenly he's looking slightly up and off to the side with a pondering face. (00:53:25)

Other mistake: Vic is helpless as Morris is bleeding to death on the sidewalk. She has her feet on a manhole in the view before the Staples, but in the overhead shot it's him with the feet on in it. On a sidenote, when he is helping her out and the passersby are seen, on the left you can spot by the Italian place under the umbrella a few extras who are having a great time and laughing, not bad for being 20 feet from a shootout and with a dying cop in front of them.

Continuity mistake: Vic's colleague brings him the plate with the tiniest piece of cake, the red fork switches side between shots (it also gets upright in the next shot 'stabbing' the cake instead of lying on the plate, but that could have been done by her out of frame, even if it's not a gesture that makes a lot of sense).

Plot hole: The 'real' villain needs Vic to investigate the drop and be there, so he'd be killed in an incriminating spot. Problem is, the boss also throws in a deadly ambush by a whole gang early in the day; if they killed Vic, Vic would have not been where the boss needed him to be. Even more absurd is the fact that the boss is also aware in advance that Vic is having Lasik that day, making it the worst day ever to pick for such a scheme. There was basically no chance Vic could pull off the investigation in that state, and even in the unlikely (it does happen in the movie!) case that he'd manage to show up blind as a bat at the drug deal and get killed as intended, nobody investigating would ever believe that someone with a major drug deal on his hands would have gone through eye surgery the same day.

Continuity mistake: In the sequence when Vic trips on the camping tent and Stu pummels him with feminism, different takes have been used, and you can easily tell the objects on the ground change place, generally consistent with each angle. For instance, all the shots from a certain angle have a certain frying pan directly in front of the counter where Stu was lying down, but are gone in the others. (01:01:00)

Continuity mistake: When Stu throws baseball bats at Vic, the type of bat he's holding change more than once between shots. When Vic asks for a time out, for instance, Stu has a metal bat with a black handle that turns into a full wood one in the side view (also with the grip switched from the very bottom to a few inches higher), and then back to metal.

Other mistake: The strip club the protagonists visit is, according to what Bautista says, in Compton. They are outside the joint a couple minutes before 3 PM. From there they need to go to Amo Cortez's place. When they arrive in front of the house, Batista grabs the keys and you can take a peek at the phone in charge; the address is highlighted and it is 111 Drysdale Ln, which would be in Orange County and 20-30 minutes away from their starting point, but the phone goes 'ping!' the moment the door closes, and shows it's 4:05 PM. Considering Madame Titties only mentioned a gang and not an address, and Batista earlier ordered to head to Long Beach (pretty weird place to go for a gang called Alamitos 13, obviously they'd be based in Los Alamitos), one could think that there's a part of the investigation not shown...but the phone showed a long uninterrupted course instead, with an estimation of 45 minutes of drive.

Continuity mistake: In his escape from the cops at the beginning of the movie, we see Iko Uwais drop down 2 floors from the 8th, where Bautista and Gillan are. One more in the overhead POV. Another one in a separate shot. Another shot again, another floor down. Then he drops another floor. Then Batista hits him with the tray making him fall 2 floors, but we see with that shot the difference between the two, and it's of 5 floors. It does not add up. (00:03:35 - 00:04:20)

Continuity mistake: In the first confrontation with Tedjo, he kicks away Vic's glasses (obviously from the wrong distance, as there's no way that kick would connect) and they fight some more. When Vic misses with his punch, Tedjo kicks him in the chest, doing it with the left foot, that becomes the right foot in the following shot. (00:02:00)

Continuity mistake: Throughout the scene when Angie tells Vic about the Feds taking over the case, Vic's paperwork (the mugshot, the photo) change spot a few times. When Angie stands from the desk, Tedjo's mugshot is on Vic's cake's platter, even, but it's nice and clean back on the folder right after. (00:10:00)

Continuity mistake: Vic is chatting with her daughter at the Chinese restaurant. He tells her to stop breathing (the way she does it, at least). Cut to a brief reverse shot when she is eating from the chopsticks; she is replying to him immediately, mouth completely free. In that spot of the convo you can pick up more inconsistencies, like the hair on/off her shoulders, and next Batista's chopsticks held up that disappear during the following cut. (00:13:25)

Other mistake: On the window of the Spinster gym there's a blow up of the "LA Tattler" magazine. The date on it though is 9 August 2018, wrong in year (the movie is set in 2019) and also I'd say in month, considering that Becca signed the contract on the 27th and the events happen on the 28th; in other words, in August the gym would have not been open at all. (01:26:15)

Continuity mistake: Stu just picked up Vic and he needs to do a U turn; first time we see the street there's just a parked car and no incoming vehicles from the worksite, but all of a sudden one appears for the rest of the scene, honking at Stu as he struggles with the maneuver. (00:17:10)

Continuity mistake: After spearing Tedjo through the wall, Bautista throws a piece of equipment at him sending him flying back on his butt. Tedjo slides right past some artwork on the floor, but he is shown stunned at its side and partially on top of it in the following shot. (00:03:15)

Other mistake: When Victor undergoes the eye surgery procedure, the doctors have opened his file, and it's in a June 2018 folder. The movie is set in August 2019, it's a bit unlikely that a whole year went past between the doctor visit and the actual LASIK. (00:12:05)

Continuity mistake: Driving to Koreatown, Stu is trying to strike up conversation with Bautista. In some shots he has the sun on his shoulder, in others he does not. And it always changes between shots, never during a single time when the camera holds the same view. (00:18:00)

Continuity mistake: Stu messes up with Amo's Twitter at 5:37 PM. A few minutes pass and the shootout ensues. At the end of it, over in just a handful of minutes, it shouldn't be more than 6 PM, if at all. And yet the boss receives the text message at 7:29 PM. (00:48:55)

Continuity mistake: Talking with the stripper backstage, Stu reminisces about the time when "her Harry met my Sally." The two dancers in the background (sailor and mime with suspenders) are suddenly turned around when reflected in the mirror. (00:28:00)

Vic: It's a baby gun. It allows you to fire it while crying.
