Last Action Hero

Other mistake: Before Jack's car jumps over the bridge, a van skids on the road. The first angle shows a thug firing at Jack, and the second angle shows Jack swerving to the left to dodge the bullets. The editing is all wrong here: The thug fires at the opposite lane to where Jack is, so he is really driving to where the bullets are.

Continuity mistake: When Jack rips the door off the cab, he first breaks the top hinge and enters the cab. In the next shot when he pulls the cabbie out of the car, the door is completely off and laying on the ground. A few shots later when Jack grabs the newspaper, the door is seen hanging again.

Question: All of the actors in this film are actually credited as either themselves, or their character in the Jack Slater films (eg. the reporters recognise Tom Noonan as himself at the film premiere). However, the actress playing Whitney is actually called Bridgette Wilson, not Meredeth as Danny points out. Why was this?

Answer: Most likely, she was not a well-known enough actress to have name recognition like Arnold.
