Cannonball Run II

Revealing mistake: The opening chase has a police car chasing a white Countach. We hear two officers talking to each other. There are times they are talking to others on the radio, as well. But every shot that allows us to see inside the patrol car, only a driver is in it. (00:04:15)

Revealing mistake: When the two police officers pull over the monkey in the limo, the monkey slaps one of the officers in the head. His head hits the other officer and they both go down. Look closely and you will see that his head never made contact with the other officer.

Revealing mistake: The opening chase has a police car chasing a white Countach. We hear the officers talking on the radio, reporting the chase events, etc., yet the driver is alone and is always seen with his hands on the wheel, never holding the radio's microphone. (00:02:00)

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the film, a police car is chasing the black Mitsubishi. When the police car is gone, the Mitsubishi 'lands' on the roadside. Look at the shadow to see a portion of the crane that is lowering the car. It's the type used in junkyards that has a large magnet to lift cars.
