Ali G in Da House

Continuity mistake: After Ali has thrown his chain at the PM and is heading back to Ricky and Dave, he bends to pick it up. In the next shot of the PM, you can still see the chain.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ali is changed to the railings, his pants are down. A middle-aged woman comes over and hits his manhood. Obviously he is naked from the waist-down, but in the scene straight after you can just about see Ali's trousers at the bottom of the screen.

Continuity mistake: When Ali and David fight, the alignment of the gun put onto the desk changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: The remote control of the hi-fi teleports between shots when Kate visits Ali at home. Ali leaves it next to the wall (along with the other remote), but it's not there anymore when Kate gets the remote of the telly some shots later.

Continuity mistake: When the fit refugees are shown to be examined upon their arrival at Dover, the officer in the background is seen to be turning towards the entry door twice during the subsequent shots.

Continuity mistake: Just after the Conference where Ali drugs the world leaders, he is in the car with the Prime Minister. The car drives a good distance beyond a large statue on the left of the screen and yet when the shot cuts to in inside the car they go past the same statue again.

Continuity mistake: Before Ali G gives up his hunger strike he takes a bite out of the chicken piece and the reporter puts it back into the box. In the next shot the reporter puts the chicken piece back into the box again.

Continuity mistake: When the PM shows Ali the red button, the alignment of the newspapers on his desk changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ali walks to the floor of the House of Commons, he walks past Charles Dance and Michael Gambon and they say something like "What is he doing..." Look at the guy next to Charles Dance, he has his right hand on his face but immediately in the next shot he is gesturing with it and waving papers with the other hand.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ali is at the center with the kids, he gives some yellow stickers to one of them and the kid sticks them to his arm. But in the next few shots the stickers keep changing their position on the kid's arm.

Continuity mistake: When Ali G knocks the evil Charles Dance out with his chain near the end of the film, one shot shows him throwing it at a low angle then in the next he is throwing it high into the air. (01:11:37)
