Charlie's Angels

Continuity mistake: When Bosley is in the dungeon towards the end of the movie he is seen ripping his sheet to shreds trying to make a rope. If you look in the window where he throws his rope there is light coming in from outside - not necessarily daylight, but a floodlight or similar. From outside though, the wall is pitch black, with no light coming from the room either. (01:01:10)

Continuity mistake: In the last scene with the tugboat you can see the wake starting a few hundred meters behind the boat, even though it is supposed to have been sailing for a while.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene, when the red Ford Taurus flies into the air and flips, in one shot its a 96-97 model, in another shot it becomes a 98-99 model (grille is different).

Continuity mistake: In the fight with the thin man, after Natalie hits him Dylan already has her leg lifted to hit him but Alex doesn't. In the next shot they lift and hit at the same time. (00:25:20)

Factual error: Near the end of the film Knox is flying a Huey helicopter and the Angels hitch a ride by shooting it with a spear gun and dangling on the line behind it. Suddenly adding about 200kgs to a Huey in flight like that is going to cause all sorts of problems with the trim and airspeed of the aircraft - the pilot would know immediately that something was wrong.

Suggested correction: Knox wasn't a trained pilot. Either he had no clue to what was going on, or he thought something may have been wrong, but didn't know what to do about it.

Taking off and landing a helicopter are by far the most intense and difficult part of a pilot's training. Seriously, 99% of learning to fly is learning how to land and take off. If the pilot is skilled enough to take off in a Huey he is easily skilled enough to notice a massive additional drag on his helicopter due to the additional weight of the angels and the air resistance put up by such a bulky protrusion on his aircraft. If he isn't skilled enough to notice that, he isn't skilled enough to take off in the first place.

Natalie: They don't call me balls out Natalie for nothing.

Trivia: Since Drew, Cameron and Lucy are all anti gun, they went through the entire movie using alternatives to guns.

More trivia for Charlie's Angels

Question: At the start of the film Drew (disguised as an African Prince) drags a guy with a bomb strapped to his chest from an aircraft. What was the bomber hoping to achieve? If he was going to destroy the aircraft - why was he interested in diamonds if he was about to die? If he was selling the device to the African - why was it ticking? If he was negotiating to be paid to not destroy the aircraft - what was his plan for escaping after he deactivated the device?

Chosen answer: I suspect that like much in this movie, it was merely conceived to be an 'exciting' opening for the movie and logic played little part in its inclusion.
