Visible crew/equipment: During the scene in the prison infirmary, the guard's nightstick is taken and used to beat the guard and the doctor. when it is first taken out of the guard's belt, it bends. Later, as it is being waved around, it can be seen bending repeatedly. It was obviously a rubber prop.
Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene, the escaped convict and police are exchanging gun fire between cars. In the different shots of the police car, the bullet holes in the windshield appear and disappear several times. Also, when three shots have been fired at the police car there are four bullet holes in the windshield.
Trivia: Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez were having a movie trivia contest on the set one day. Estevez asked Dreyfuss to identify the movie that the line "This is no boating accident" was from. Dreyfuss didn't recognize the quote, despite the fact that he was the actor who said it in Jaws (1975). Deciding that this was too good to pass up, this incident was re-enacted for the film.Cheryl Gibson
