Big Trouble in Little China

Other mistake: After Jack climbs up the ladder and through the floor he then runs right to the locked door, all this takes about ten seconds. Somehow in those few seconds Wang, Gracie, and the rest of the girls have all made it up the same ladder and coming around the corner when he gives him the signal to come to the door when there's no way they couldn't have all done it that quickly.

Other mistake: Early in the film, Jack says Lopan had "light coming out of his mouth" but Jack was already blinded and couldn't have seen that.

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.
