Continuity mistake: When Chris Farley is pretending to be a Chinese cook at that one restaurant, cooking, the brown spot on the stove keeps on changing size.

Continuity mistake: When Chris Farley has Chris Rock drive him around blindfolded they get themselves onto a horse racetrack. While they are driving around the track you can see the tire tracks left by the camera car in front of them.

Continuity mistake: When the girl is tied up in the room, Haru shoots the big spear-like arrow through the room. When the machine that it's attached to comes through wall, it knocks the bomb off of the table it was sitting on. But, by the time the machine makes it through the other wall into the warehouse the bomb is neatly on the machine and removed from the room that the girl was in.

Plot hole: Wouldn't the bomb (when in the back of the truck of the bad guy driving away) vaporize him, considering he wasn't that much far apart than Allison was when she was tied up? He is even quoting as "Are you comfortable? Well it doesn't matter considering you'll be vaporized before you know it," when she was about 4 ft away.

Continuity mistake: When Chris Farley is pretending to be a chef and a fight breaks loose, he throws one of the men into the drum that is hung on the wall. It falls on him, but later in this scene the man is still in the background lying down, but the drum is back up on the wall.

Continuity mistake: As soon as Chris Farley put the gold coins on the counter to pay for his room, I knew they would be arranged differently in the next shot. And surprise, surprise...

Continuity mistake: The red Chrysler Convertible used in the movie changes. In the "normal" scenes it's the model built in the middle of the nineties, when they shoot at it it's an older one (without a facelift).

Continuity mistake: After Haru deflects the bullets and the bad guy picks up a pipe to hit Haru with, Haru catches it in his hand. He then kicks the bad guy and he falls backward with the pipe in his hands, then it's in Haru's hands, then back in his, and then back in Haru's.


Continuity mistake: There's a scene in the hotel room where Chris Farley is swinging some broadswords. He is holding them (one in each hand) in one shot, and in the next shot shakes Chris Rock's hand.

Visible crew/equipment: In almost every shot with the red convertible, if you look in the reflection of the wind shield or the side of the car you can see a camera, boom mic or other lighting equipment.

Sir William

Revealing mistake: When Haru looks through the phone-book, you can see they took a real phone-book and simply glued a strip of paper that had 10 rows of fake names and numbers over a section of it (leaving space to make "Tanley, Martin" stand out). You can also see the name are briefly out of alphabetical order because of this. (And anything seen that is not covered by the strip of paper is a real person's actual address and phone number).


Continuity mistake: When Haru grabs the three-section staff, to impress Sally, he holds it at chest level, the next shot, his hands are immediately extended down near the waist.


Continuity mistake: When Haru is pretending to be a Chinese cook, he tosses a shrimp which lands between a female customer's breasts, inside her dress. The next shot is of him removing the shrimp with tongs and the shrimp is hanging off her dress on the outside.

Continuity mistake: When Haru holds the binoculars and sees the license plate you see him put the covers in his hands but when the gate moves a few seconds later he opens that hand and they're not there.

Revealing mistake: When Chris Farley bends down in the temple and rips the back of his black pants and shirt, during one of the "behind" shots of Farley, you can see a pre-cut slit in his shirt, revealing his clothing underneath.

Continuity mistake: When Chris Farley goes into the hotel for the last time, and the man sweeps up his shoes, he has black socks on... but when he enters his hotel room, he is now wearing white socks.

Continuity mistake: When Gobe parks the car by the counterfeiting warehouse near the ending, it's parallel with the warehouse's wall. When Haru gets out of the car, the front is pointed toward the wall. Then when Haru is climbing up the palm tree, you can see that the car is further away from the warehouse than it was before.

Continuity mistake: In one scene Hauru's "brother" is talking with the master ninja about Hauru. The brother has a gold necklace around his neck, but in the story line he does not receive that necklace until later in the movie.

Revealing mistake: When Haru changes clothes to his pimp outfit in the store, Joey waits outside. If you watch closely while Joey's waiting, you can see the scene "jump", showing that it was two different shots spliced together to give the illusion that Haru changed in a couple of seconds.

Character mistake: When Alison is stalling Tanley from entering the bedroom where Haru is escaping being discovered, Tanley refers to Alison as "Angela darling." (00:41:33)

Trivia: When Haru is about to get arrested (right before the ninja dude throws that little ball and takes his place), the stocky and balding cop all they way to the left (or right?) is Kevin Farley, Chris's brother.
