Continuity mistake: When Axel walks away from the receptionist in the Shooting Club with the bag of vitamins, in the close up he has his left hand below the bag, and holds the top with his right hand. But in the next shot he's suddenly let go with his left hand and only holds it from below with his right.

Continuity mistake: After being put on leave, Bogomil leaves the office and is driving towards the camera. His car is being followed, then passed by, the Mercedes Benz driven by Karla Fry. The license plate on the front of Bogomil's car is 2CTE919. When he pulls over to help Karla the license plate on the front of his car has changed to 2CTE673.
Continuity mistake: When Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart are racing to to get to the City Deposit, Rosewood takes a hard left turn. During this turn we can see that Axel is in the passenger seat and Taggart is in the back seat. The next shot Taggart is in the front seat on the police radio and Axel is in the back seat. This clip was taken from later in the movie when the guys are racing to the Emperian Fields race track and Axel is in the front seat with Taggart in the back seat.
Continuity mistake: When Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart are racing to get to the City Deposit, Rosewood and Taggart fight over whether the light is green or red. Rosewood drives through it and hits another car. The red police beacon falls off the roof and onto the hood. As the car spins the beacon is gone. In the next shot we can see the beacon back on top of the car above Taggart's head.
Continuity mistake: When Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart are racing to to get to the City Deposit, Rosewood runs over several parking meters on the sidewalk which heavily damages the front end of the car. However, later when Taggart catches up to Axel and Rosewood outside the Playboy Mansion, he's driving the exact same car, complete with the police light, but the front end isn't damaged at all.
Continuity mistake: After Axel shoots the screens in the gun club they show a shot of Karla and Russ talking about the shell casing. You can see the screens between and around them. There are no holes. Axel is also playing with the artificial laser sighted gun just as he was in the previous shots before he shot holes in the screens. Axel and Karla are later shown at the shooting range and the screens are perfectly intact.
Continuity mistake: When Bogomil stops to help Karla their cars are several meters apart. When Bogomil gets the first shot he rolls on the bonnet of Karla's car. He walks 1-1½ steps towards her. She pushes him back (i.e. towards her own car), but even so - he bumps into his own car. It was much further away and in a different direction.

Continuity mistake: When Axel gets the bag of vitamins from Rosewood the bag is rolled/folded closed in one direction only. This is also seen after Axel wets his face with the water from the champagne bucket. After he wets his face he grips the back with the folded top of the back facing him. The next shot he is walking towards the receptionist with the bag facing her. The folded edge is now facing away from him. The single folded edge is best seen after he picks up the bag from the receptionist's desk.
Continuity mistake: When Axel arrives at the hospital he's wearing a gold, round, white faced watch, with a black band. When he's driving, and soon sees the house under construction, the black band on the watch is a type of weave design (note his hand on the steering wheel). When he talks to the foreman, the watch is all black and has a plain black band.

Continuity mistake: As Axel is driving down the street right before he cons the builders out of the house, you can see in the background a lot of cars as it is a busy street. Axel then makes a U-turn in the middle of the street without getting hit, and no other car is ever seen on this road.
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!"
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: 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 Rosewood, Axel and Taggart are driving to the racetrack, Axel sits in the front passenger seat and Taggart is in the back. However, after Axel says that they better step on it, in the interior close-up as Rosewood turns sharply, Taggart is in the front passenger seat and Axel 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.

Continuity mistake: When Axel arrives at the hospital he is wearing his watch on his right wrist, but when he walks into Bogomil's room to say hi to Jan the watch is on his left wrist. The same thing happens when Axel drives past the house with renovations, his watch is on his right wrist, but when he pulls into the driveway the watch is on his left wrist. Interestingly, none of these shots are flipped.

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.
Continuity mistake: As Sidney Bernstein pulls two $100 bills from his wallet and hands them to Axel he says, "Here's one, here's two. They're real crisp," so then Axel holds the two bills in his right hand and the papers in his left hand. However, in the next shot facing Axel, there are now at least four bills in Axel's right hand.
Continuity mistake: When Axel breaks open the drawer at the B.H. Shooting Club, he finds the notepad with the coordinates. When the pad is in the drawer there are five full lines of writing with a sixth short line below it, but when Axel takes the pad out of the drawer there are only four full lines of text with two more short lines below.
