Big Trouble in Little China

Continuity mistake: When Jack Burton and the rest of the gang escape from the Wing Kong Trade Centre the first time, the guards fire at the left side of the bus breaking the windows and making holes in the bodywork. When we see the bus a few seconds later as it is driving away, it appears undamaged.

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the film, when the creature captures Gracie, he jumps through a hole in the floor with her on his back. As he falls through the hole, his feet fall out in front of him and he is shown almost prone. Yet when the shot changes he lands firmly on his feet.

Continuity mistake: During the escape from Wing Kong Trading, Jack climbs up from the sewer to figure out the escape route. He runs to the door and almost immediately behind him, everyone has managed to climb up from the sewer much faster than would be possible.

Continuity mistake: During the escape from Wing Kong Trading, they all jump into a pool and swim through a pipe which is not big enough for people to pass each other. Despite the fact that Margo and Jack are in the water before Gracie, she manages to come up for air before both of them.

Trivia: Kim Cattrall was surprised when she got to the set for the prison scene one morning, as no one told her she would be hogtied for the entire scene (in the story, it was due to a deleted scene when she made trouble for her guards). She endured it like a professional, occasionally having her gag removed so she could drink water. When asked by John Carpenter whether or not she was uncomfortable, she simply replied 'I've been in tighter situations than this!'
