Continuity mistake: When Darryl arrives at McDowell's the first time his driver's window is closed while he drives along the street and pulls in, but in the next shot the window is all the way down. There wasn't enough time between shots to lower the window completely. (00:47:55)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Semmi and Akeem are cleaning the soap from the window of McDowells the amount of soap on the window constantly changes from less to more and back to less again. (Look at the very top of the window pane).
Trivia: The man who is getting a (fake) haircut as Akeem first enters the barber shop is played by a then-unknown Cuba Gooding Jr.
