Continuity mistake: When Karla uses the stopwatch during the Adriano's heist, her left arm is raised as she shouts, "Now!" and puts the stopwatch in her pocket, but a few shots later her left arm is still raised holding the stopwatch and she puts it in her pocket again. A few shots later, yet again, she is holding that stopwatch raised in her left hand and she shouts, "Time!" (00:02:15)
Continuity mistake: When they are in the police station using the co-ordinates that were locked in the drawer of Charles Cain's office it comes up with 9762 Gregory Way for the city deposit but when they are driving to the city deposit Sergeant Taggart radios in that they need help at 341 Gregory Way.
Continuity mistake: When Dent's crew are outside the race track in their limo, Dent is tapping a cigarette and holding something silver. In the next shot his hands are empty.
Continuity mistake: In the scene at the police station with Lutz, the Mayor and others, the Mayor starts rolling down his sleeves as he prepares to put his jacket on and depart. But in the very next shot (only a second later based on continuous audio) his jacket is completely on as he is walking out. There was insufficient time for him to do this.
Continuity mistake: When Bogomil was running out at Dent's oil fields it was a dry and dusty day. He stopped and picked up some of the dirt - and it was very loose. But there is wet mud on his sneakers. Furthermore with the amount of mud left underneath he would have had to have gotten into a car immediately and driven home - not run - otherwise it would have fallen off. There is so much mud that he couldn't have walked many steps without it falling off.
Continuity mistake: When Axel drives past the renovated house you can see cars behind him as he contemplates acquiring it for himself. Seconds later the shot changes and he performs a U-turn. The cars that were behind him have now gone.

Continuity mistake: When Rosewood, Axel and Taggart are driving to the racetrack, Axel sits in the front passenger seat and Taggart is in the back.

Continuity mistake: The same exterior shot of the Beverly Hills Police Dept is shown three times, with the same people standing/walking around in front. The first is just before Bogomil opens the 'A' envelope. The second is just before Axel looks up the coordinates on the computer, and the third time is just before Bogomil announces his position as chief of police. (00:09:15 - 01:02:00)
Continuity mistake: When Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart pull up beside the racetrack near the end of the film, you see the front and back doors on the passenger side opening, with Axel exiting the front, and Taggart exiting the back passenger side. Next shot, we see the car from the driver side with Rosewood exiting the front driver side, but now Taggart is exiting the back driver side. (01:23:50)
