Continuity mistake: In the scene where the robber tries to rob the restaurant you can see out the windows. This scene was shot in two places. 1. Highland and Hollywood Blvd. before they knocked down the Burger King there, and re-did Highland Avenue. When the men go outside, it's really Queens Blvd, and it's snowing, but the scenes in the restaurant are sunny and bright outside. Same when you see them walking down the street to the restaurant, it's snowing and cold, but when they get inside, the weather outside is CA weather.LeslieSiegel
Other mistake: While at the engagement party, Lisa steps outside to be on the swings and invites Akeem to talk. They have no coats on, show no signs of cold, and we can't see their breath. But when they were standing outside of McDowell's and emptying the trash everyone was dressed for winter.ckbyers
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)
Prince Akeem: Fascinating! Semmi, look at this! America is great indeed. Imagine a country so free, one can throw glass on the streets.
