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.
Other mistake: In the shot where Ramathorne is at the gun range, about to shoot Mac in the bullet proof cup, he is talking to Foster and Rabbit about how they are going to get in to the Spurbury Police Lockup. If you watch him draw his gun, he moves his other hand down to chamber a bullet, the sound effect is heard, but he never actually pulls the action back on the gun.
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.
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.
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.
Visible crew/equipment: In the pursuit scene between the Mac in the Miata and Ramathorn and Rabbit in the Squad car, both vehicles drive by the camera which is located on the shoulder of the highway. If you slow the DVD version down, you can see a cone positioned in front of the camera so the drivers knew when to steer clear.
Visible crew/equipment: In an early scene of the film, several of the Troopers are chasing a speeding white Miata down the highway. At one point, the Miata takes an exit off the main road in an attempt to elude his pursers. In one shot, as the Miata whips around the corner, you can see a few orange cones and what appears to be a crew member who are blocking off traffic on the road in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
Other mistake: In the scene where Thorny, Mac, and Foster put Rabbit in the locker with the shaving cream, the Captain comes in and shows them an article in the newspaper about the fight with the Spurbury cops at the Winnebago murder scene. The article, which is entitled "Highway Patrol Out of Control." has nothing to do with the fight (if you pause the movie, preferably on the DVD, read a little bit of the article. The article is about an art sculpture exhibition and has nothing to do with the fight.)
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.
Revealing mistake: At 46 minutes into the movie, Foster is outside of the Spurbury police station flashing Ursula. Ursula comes outside with a shotgun and voice changer to surprise him. You hear the pump-action of the shotgun, her voice through the voice-changer, and see the barrel of the shotgun come onto the scene all within about a second. She couldn't possibly chamber the shotgun, hold the shotgun, and hold the voice changer all at the same time without having three hands.
Other mistake: In the scene where the troopers are testing the bullet proof cup, the captain (actor Brian Cox) arrives and explains that he created this joke to test rookies. He takes the gun from one of the troopers and fires to show that the gun is loaded with blanks. But the gun is loaded with real bullet and blows out a window in one of the police cars. At the moment the shot sounds and the window breaks, Cox is pointing the gun well above the car. The angle that Cox is holding the gun would have caused the bullet to go at least 10 feet above the car; not even close to the broken window.
