Visible crew/equipment: In the scene at the end of the movie when they're in the bar in Mexico, and Archie starts a fight, when you see the dog start to snarl, you can see two hands holding on to the dog's back legs.

Continuity mistake: When the first FBI agent gets thrown from the passenger side of the car the scene is of a city street. When the second agent gets thrown from the car just seconds later after he hits the road the scene to the left looks grassy instead of city.

Continuity mistake: Wayans reveals to Sandler that he has had a steel plate put in his head. He uses it several times during the movie as a battering ram. However, when he was shown in the hospital while recovering from the shot to the head, the scar is shown as only about an inch or two long. Also, later in the movie he doesn't even have a scar.

Continuity mistake: When Chuck (Charlie) comes to the rescue and saves Archie and Keats, the guys chasing them have a machine gun in their truck and you can see the bullets hitting Chuck's truck, however the window does not even crack. I doubt they would have bulletproof glass.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film when Archie walks into Colton's home with Keats, he pretends to trip and then shoots the guard in the eye. However, the pool the guard falls into is to the right hand side of the man, and instead of falling straight back onto the ground, as he would normally have done with the direction in which the bullet was going, he falls back first into the pool, meaning he would have had to turn around, even though he was dead.

Revealing mistake: When the two FBI agents are thrown out of the car, you can see they are clearly wearing body armour under their clothing just for the purpose of breaking the fall. They look "fat" mainly on their torso because of the padding.


Revealing mistake: In the scene when we see Archie Moses trying to climb out of the window at the honeymoon suite, when you see Charles walk by you can see his shadow on the backdrop.

Thomas Ryder

Other mistake: Right after the second agent gets out of the drivers side door of the car he rolls down the middle of the road. No cars in the background seem to stop or move out of the way. Also just as he is thrown watch the close up shot with Sandler in the backseat and Wayans driving, the car that would have hit the agent just keeps driving behind them the entire shot.

Revealing mistake: In the opening scene where Wayans and Sandler steal the Ferrari, the owner comes out and fires a shot at them as they speed away. If you watch the gun, the muzzle kicks up way after he fires the shot, and you can even tell the actor is doing it manually by how far the gun goes up over his head. Real guns don't kick like that.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Keats puts handcuffs on his "girlfriend" and ties her behind the pillars near the stairs. However, when Archie and Keats walk down the stairs after Archie is shot, the lady isn't there. How can she have escaped?

Continuity mistake: Wayans and Sandler are attacked in their motel room, and their room is riddled from all sides with bullets flying everywhere. However, when they flee the room all the lights are still burning and the TV is still heard in the background with the porno movie playing.


Revealing mistake: Just before Archie and Keats jump out off the plane before it falls down a cliff, the faces of their stunt doubles are visible.

Plot hole: When Colton is about to kill Archie, the dog turns up to save his life, but Archie left the warehouse on a motorbike, so how did the dog catch up so fast?

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Archie are walking down the stairs with Traci, Traci turns her head to look over her shoulder to tell Archie to shut up. In the next shot her head is straight without her turning it back.


Archie Moses: This is a '70s porno. You know how I can tell? Because the guy's dick has sideburns.
