Blues Brothers 2000

Continuity mistake: When Elwood, Mac, and Buster arrive at the Monster Truck show to sing. We see Mac get out of the car. If you look carefully in the background you can see Elwood already going up to the stage. Then the camera switched to show Elwood getting out of the car.

Continuity mistake: During the escape from the "bluegrass" gig, Dan Aykroyd pulls out a remote control, fires up the car, and slowly turns the wheel to the left. We then see the car pulling out and slowly turning right. (01:07:50)

Continuity mistake: Near the end, as Paul Shaffer judges the Battle of the Bands, the red stage curtain is closed and the stage is empty. We know that the Blues Brothers were the last performers, and they carried their microphone stands with them as they retreated behind the curtain; so, all sound gear and both bands are behind the curtain, and the stage is empty in front of the curtain except for Paul Shaffer. As Shaffer announces the winner, he ducks to his right and goes center-stage, where the curtain is instantly wide open again with band members and sound gear filling the stage all the way to the edge, which would be physically impossible to accomplish in the split-second camera cut.

Charles Austin Miller

Factual error: When Cable calls his mother in Phoenix from his desk in Chicago, he only dials seven digits, as if making a local call.

Trivia: The police car they use is marked as "K-9 - canine patrol". John Belushi's brother James was in a movie called K-9. He was meant to appear in this, but couldn't due to other commitments.
