Revealing mistake: When you watch the accident scene frame by frame you see that Laroche's mother and uncle are replaced by dummies. You can see the joints in his mother's hands and a large spring that holds his uncle's head in place. (00:41:50)


Continuity mistake: When the police officer drives by the two cars of the orchid stealers they are in the shade. When he stops and looks back the sun is shining on the cars, also when he gets out and walks over. (00:07:40)

Donald Kaufman: Oh, come on, man, please? You're the genius.
