Continuity mistake: When Fausto hands a tape from the back seat of the car to put on, he pulls it out and it is white. In the next shot when Demi Moore takes it, it is black.

Audio problem: During the supper, right after Fausto and Renalda jumps through the windows, Chris and Diane runs for the exit. Right before they reach the exit, Judge Valkenheiser pushes a switch that makes bars come down from the roof and block the exit. Eldona goes over to them and grabs Diane, and Chris says "Take your hands off her." The voice has a metallic sound. I have tried to look for any logical explaination in the scene as for why the voice is like this, but it has to be an audio problem.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Digital Underground was in front of the judge, the lead singer Gregory Jacobs played both roles as Shock G and Humpty Hump. However in some shots you can see Jacob's stand-in playing Shock G.

Factual error: In the beginning of the movie Chris starts up his BMW 733i and the camera pans around the interior of the car. Viewers see the tachometer, center dash stack, and the navigation screen. If you pause the movie and study the center dash stack, note that there is a Panasonic CD player. This CD player would have been an aftermarket install because a 1988 BMW didn't offer a CD player. Now later in the movie Chris is asked to put in a tape. Now there was no tape player in Chris's BMW. It was replaced by that CD player.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Chevy Chase first gets the cop on his tail, the cop pushes a switch to close a road block in front of him. Chevy Chase then makes a right turn onto a dirt road. In this shot, you see the car turning, and the driver has to correct an oversteer, turning the front tyres to the left. In the next shot inside the car you see Chevy Chase turning the steering wheel to the right. Then in the next shot you see the car from the outside again, still with the front wheels turned left.

Factual error: In the movie it shows the "Brazilianaires" talking about Rio De Janierio and implying that they're from Brazil, however they're speaking Spanish but in Brazil they speak Portuguese. Also in the movie they show passports from Argentina where they do speak Spanish.


Visible crew/equipment: When the Rap crew's car is pulled in for speeding, they get out and start to look around. The guy closest to the camera in looking around, and you see the camera and stage lighting reflected in his shades. (00:58:35)

Continuity mistake: When Chris gets sent to Mr. Bone Stripper, the contraption breaks down as he's trying to get away, and finally goes into it. He goes in feet first, but comes out head first.

Suggested correction: The back up vocals (in this case the "guy in the NY jersey'- aka 2-PAC) only have to say it into the mike once; the DJ (chop master J- then puts it in 'sample' and drops it anytime he wants.

Visible crew/equipment: When Digital Underground is doing the song "All Around The World", at the end of the song, the judge bangs his gavel. As he does so, and it gets quiet, you see the studio lighting reflected in the lead singer's glasses. Also, during the last part of the song, the guy in the white NY shirt was doing the backup vocals; you still hear him, but there is a couple of shots that his lips don't move.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When going down the slide, Diane was twisting and turning, rather than be in one position. As such, she should have been covered head to toe in dust, as well as her clothing should have been stained but wasn't.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When Chris and his girl are going down the slides from the attic, watch the slides. They go from dusty to clean and back again between shots. And if Demi went first until they split up, the slide should be partially cleaned before Chris go to it, but it wasn't.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When the eyes are watching the couple in the room from the painting, the eyes look like they are animated eyes matted into the shot, because they are not vertically steady in the shot. (00:46:55)

Suggested correction: She chose a more random firing pattern as the targets got further away. Duh.

Continuity mistake: When the Brazilians are making a run from the house, Priscilla is firing the machine gun in a steady manner from the hip. When the shot turns to the inside behind her, she is firing in an unsteady way, with her arms extended, and the gun tilting up and down.

Movie Nut

Other mistake: When the second group of people brought before the judge are sentenced, they are put to death in Mr. Bone Stripper. Curious note: though it kills the people, and chucks their remains out the end, there is absolutely no evidence of the clothing that was on their bodies. There is no pile of shredded cloth anywhere to be seen in the salvage yard.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: During the dinner, Dennis is addressing his sister. As she comes over by him, look at his left sleeve. It appears to be matted in, as it has a definite line at the edge of the fabric, where all other edges are softer. Then as Eldona sits the plate down, you can see a flutter between the images of Dennis' arm and the plate. Then, as Eldona turns around, you can see her dress through the gap between Dennis' arm and the plate. (00:36:30)

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: After the Judge says "Good night, Irene!", he pulls the switch to send the quartet down into the holding area. The four of them appear to be just hunching down to simulate dropping. The next shot shows them dropping down into the pit.

Movie Nut

Fausto: Where are we going?
Chris Thorne: We're going to Atlantic City, Fausto. Get in the trunk.
