Continuity mistake: Just before Natalie and Jack have sex in the BMW it is blue sky outside, Jack sees the sign for the Mexican border being 10 miles away then the camera shows the speedometer reading 90mph, therefore they would be at the Mexican border in under 7 minutes (unless they went a different route which they wouldn't want to do because they are being chased by the police) however in the next scene presumably after the sex it is dark outside and they still have 1 mile left (approximately) till they reach the road block at the border, surely the sun doesn't go down THAT fast.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase scene you see the same building on the passenger side of the road several times (It is the only building like it in Houston where it was filmed). So if the car was on a straight highway it wouldn't be passing the same building over and over.

Add time

Continuity mistake: There is a shot of a police car shown with vomit on it before the scene where Kristy Swanson vomits from the passenger side window.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire film the positions of cars in relation to the BMW change.

Continuity mistake: Kristy Swanson vomits from the passenger side window of her car; the resulting mess ends up on the windshield of the ill-defined musical sensation turned actor Henry Rollins' police car. The incredible force of Ms. Swanson's projectile vomiting notwithstanding, as the chase progresses, Mr. Rollins' windshield becomes magically squeegee clean!

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when they're in the car, Natalie drops the cigarette lighter on Jack's trousers. Shortly afterward, the whole car is full of smoke. After they turn around a sharp corner, the camera switches to an outside shot in which the smoke is gone. In the next shot, back in the car, the smoke reappears.

Factual error: When the red BMW hits the curb just before joining the freeway he does so at 70. Hitting the curb at 70 would cause a blowout.

Continuity mistake: During one of the first scenes in which a camera crew is riding with the cops, the view is from the rear of the cruiser looking through the windshield, and they are approaching a stop sign. The scene then changes camera angles and the conversation that had been taking place continues uninterrupted, but the background is suddenly completely different.

Continuity mistake: Shortly after Jack takes Natalie hostage, during the early part of the chase through town, they keep showing brief close-ups of her face where she's not wearing a hat. This is before she loses her hat out the window of the car while getting carsick.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When the BMW joins the freeway, the cop car follows. If you look, you can see planks for the cop car to go up the curb safely.

Continuity mistake: When the car joins the freeway, the revs meter in the car is shown to be hovering at 6,000 rpm. The camera cuts to an angle behind Jack, but the rev meter is now staying at just 2,000 rpm. This is an instant cut so no time for the dial to drop.
