I Spy

Revealing mistake: The spy contact lenses that Owen Wilson and Eddie Murphy use were originally supposed to be for Carlos, but if you notice, the lens that Owen Wilson uses is blue to match his eye colour. Carlos has brown eyes.

Revealing mistake: When Owen Wilson rides in the trunk of the bad guys' car in order to find the airplane, the car passes by a narrow street - and on the left hand side you see a blue Italian "Senso unico" (One Way street sign), revealing that the sequence was shot somewhere in Italy and not in Budapest. (01:09:44)

Plot hole: During the boxing match where Eddie Murphy is wearing the special contact lenses, he sees that Owen Wilson's life is in danger. So much so, that he rushes out of the ring instead of doing his usual grand-standing. But when he shows up at the tower to rescue Owen, he has on pants and a shirt. I guess he figured Owen could hold out long enough for him to get dressed?

Trivia: In the scene right after Eddie Murphy gets in a fight with Owen Wilson and Eddie gets arrested, Owen is walking in an industrial area. While he is walking a "stray" dog runs behind him. I personally know that this dog belongs to the director.
