Super Troopers

Continuity mistake: When Ramathorne and Rabbit pull the Porsche over, Rabbit walks up to the car and leans on the door. When looking in the Porsche from Rabbit's point of view he has his right hand on the door but from the driver of the Porsche's point of view he has his left hand on the door.

Continuity mistake: In the first shot of Ramathorne and Foster driving the stolen Winnebago from the Spurbury Police Station to the governor's speech, the shot is reversed. The big giveaway is that they are driving on the left side of the road. Also the road signs are facing the wrong direction and the door to the rear of the Winnebago is on the wrong side. The following shot of the Winnebago is the same footage as before, but this time it is correctly oriented. (01:10:39)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rabbit, Thorny, and Foster are chasing Mac in the white Miata. Notice the cloud of dust when Mac skids to a stop in front of the bar, and then in the very next shot, there is no dust at all. (00:08:27)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when the troopers bust the party, watch the shot where Thorny and Rabbit rip of their St. Anky uniforms. It's obvious that the blonde haired kid got up against the wall, but in the next shot he isn't against it.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene with the three stoners, Ramathorne and Rabbit drive away after the license and registration bit, then reverse to pull up right behind the boys' car. As the cruiser is reversing, there is a red car going straight on the other side of the highway, about the same speed as the cruiser. But as the cruiser pulls up behind the stoners' car, the red car is nowhere to be seen. (00:05:26)

Continuity mistake: In the Winnebago scene where they discover the dead body, the Spurberry PD Chief draws his gun when he hears a sound in the back. He draws his gun. But his gun is actually a Crossman BB gun.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the baseball game, Mac is seen eating packs of fundip. In one shot he has five packs, in the next shot he only has three.

Continuity mistake: In the chase scene of the Miata, the inner lights on the light bar are alternating red/blue when the cruisers are seen from afar, but on the close ups of the cruisers the inner lights are not on.

Continuity mistake: Around 30-35 minutes into the movie, there is a scene where the captain is seated on a desk and talking to his officers who are all in chairs in front of him. The camera cuts several times to the officers and in turn to the captain at which time you can see the minute hand on the clock in the background go back and forth between ten past five and twelve past five.

Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence with the three stoners, there are various shots both inside and outside of the car. When the shot is outside of the car looking in, you can see there is no rear view mirror, but when the camera is inside the car it is there.

Continuity mistake: When the stoners in the car are driving, we see a shot of a bridge in the road that they will drive over. However, right after that, when they would have driven over it, we can see a shot of what the car has already driven over, and there is no bridge.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rabbit is cleaning the cars he is listening to a tape which is burnt by Favra and this clearly upsets Rabbit but if you look at the tape you can see that the tape is fully rewound.

Continuity mistake: Watch the children on the bench behind Ramathorn in the Baseball scene. Before Arlo goes to bat, There are six kids on the bench. When Arlo is being sent to the plate by Ramathorn, there are now 3 kids.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene during the Miata car chase, right after the Miata veers off the road you can see the lead trooper's car loose its front driver side hubcap but in the following shots you can clearly see that the hubcap has reattached itself.

Continuity mistake: When Thorny is talking to his wife, while the German couple is jumping in the bed, Thorny changes from holding the bananas up by his chest to down by his waist, as well as the direction of the bananas, between the shots. (00:42:50)


Continuity mistake: In the first Winnebago scene where Ramathorn, Rabbit, Officer Rando of the Spurberry Police, and the Chief of the Spurberry PD, are arguing, watch the position of Ramathorn and Officer Rando as the Chief approaches the back part of the trailer. Ramathorn is over the Chief's left shoulder before he opens the door. After he opnes the door, Ramathorn is behind his right shoulder.

Continuity mistake: When Foster and Mac play the Meow game, watch the guy in his car. His head is almost always in different positions in each shot. In the external shot that shows Mac laughing, the man in the car turns to look at Mac, and in the next shot from the interior, it shows him looking at Foster.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ramathorn and Rabbit are running into the bar to catch Mac, there are two officers (presumably Ramathorn and Rabbit) are outside; but, when the shot changes to inside the bar, three officers come through the door. (00:08:30)

Visible crew/equipment: Several times throughout the movie you can see lighting screens and lighting equipment in the reflection of the troopers sunglasses.
