Continuity mistake: In the scene right before they raid the bonded truck, look in the background, and you will notice that their car is directly behind the bonded truck, then in the very next scene the car is right on the side of the bonded truck, and the traffic in that lane is stopped all the way back.
Continuity mistake: At La Fleur's warehouse, Martin Laurence punches Dave Chapelle in the face and as he gets dragged away we can see blood emerging from his nose. He even says "My nose is bleeding." However, in a subsequent shot soon after, as Chapelle stuffs a pack of heroin into his jacket there is no sign of blood on his face, clothing or hands.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Carlson and Hardcastle spoof Miles about busting him, the two cops are on the U.S. side of the border, and Miles is on the Mexican side. In the overhead shot of them as Carlson says "...we can't make it - you're out of our jurisdiction," and he taps the yellow border line with his foot, look carefully at their shadows - all are long and facing the upper right hand corner of the screen. However, in all the frontal shots of Miles as he talks to them and throws a little dance, the shadows on all the buildings and trees behind him (in Mexico) are facing towards his right - in other words, in the opposite direction of the shadows from the overhead shot.redbaron2000
Continuity mistake: After the truck crosses the Mexican border, Lawrence talks with the FBI Detective about crossing the border. Between the meeting of the LAPD Chief and the dialogue between Lawrence and the FBI Officer, quite a bit of time elapses. Yet when Lawrence hops into the cop car and pursues the truck, the truck is practicaly beside the border station, it doesn't make sense taking the speed he was travelling at. Surely the Federali would have busted him if he stopped?
Factual error: When the drug lord hands Malone the gun near the end to shoot the double-crosser, the hammer is cocked back. The drug lord then opens the cylinder and takes out all bullets but one. There are 2 mistakes here: 1) There are no revolvers that open up with the hammer cocked, to avoid accidental firing. They all stay locked shut until the hammer is put back down. 2) The bullet is in the wrong position to be fired next, yet it fires on the first attempt. It should be in the first position to the right (one o'clock) from the hammer.
Visible crew/equipment: When Saverio Guerra runs into the clothes line after the chase sequence with Martin Lawrence after they bust the B96 truck, when he runs out of the house into the line, if you look close, you can clearly tell that it is not really Guerra, that is is a stunt double. This is even clearer if you pause the tape as they show his face.
Continuity mistake: When the druglord hands Malone the gun to shoot the double crosser, watch the hammer, it starts open and then it closes and opens several times between shots as Malone holds it.
Continuity mistake: When the truck driver hauling the stash of heroin is running from Malone the sweat pattern on his tank top mysteriously changes in size and shape, also it disappears completely when he's running into the house.
Factual error: ML is caught by the LAPD without the diamond which was obviously never found. Fine, the site is huge and they may have thought the accomplice took it. However, its inconceivable that the insurance company and the police would not keep surveillance on him after a $17MM diamond was missing for 2 years. They should have been on him like a hawk.
Revealing mistake: When Martin is being stupid as a pizza delivery man outside the cop station, in the reflection, people are staring at the camera crew.
Trivia: Anytime there is an overhead shot of the LAPD police cars, number 664 is always there. ML even drives it at one point, and I think in one shot where he chases the armoured car, its number is 664.
