Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when Eddie Murphy is first seen driving the corvette up the carpark ramps doing all the fancy driving, it is very obvious that the actual driver is a white guy.

Visible crew/equipment: Right after the bad guys rip off an armored truck, there is a chase scene where a police car flips over and slides down the street. For a split second, you can see the cable that is pulling the car.

Visible crew/equipment: In the armored car chase, the first cop car to get shot flips over and you can see the large metal pole that is used to do the stunt. It even rolls down the street with the car after the explosion.

Factual error: At the end of the movie when they put a gun in the Canon GL-1 Camera, it fits where the MiniDV tape belongs. This is impossible. The gun is too big for the camera and can't fit inside the tape deck.

Continuity mistake: When we first see the Corvette that Trey gets zoom into the garage, a motorcycle is going down the ramp that Trey is coming up. Then the next shot is a point of view from the Corvette, and there is no motorcyclist. Then the next shot was the same as the first and the motorcyclist is there again.

Continuity mistake: When the show is cancelled, you see Mitch sitting on the couch with the dog. He reaches over and puts his hand on the dog. The camera angle changes and you see him putting his hand on the dog again when he's told that the movers have to take the dog.


Visible crew/equipment: When Mitch is jumping from the garbage truck onto the hood of the Corvette. In the second shot he jumps off, the stuntman is visible.

Trey Sellars: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Detective Mitch Preston: I doubt it.
