Deliberate mistake: In the sequence where Jack finds his friend, and then the cards he is holding counts down to the explosion. Jack runs out, and the house explodes throwing the cop car into the air. If you look close, you can see the piston that launches the cop car and then falls back down. (00:24:40)

Suggested correction: This is a scene in the "fake movie" where everything is an action movie cliche, including seeing the deliberate mistakes.

Revealing mistake: When Arnie flips his car sideways to avoid the Texaco truck, the stunt driver is very obviously not Arnie.

Suggested correction: That's one of the gags of the film, how action films have obvious stunt doubles, not to mention ridiculous stunts like how he got the car on 2 wheels in the first place.

Suggested correction: It's the same car the whole time. The car he gets into is black, but the way the camera picks up the light that hits part of the door does fade out of the color some, but you can see the rest is black.

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. (01:40:10)
