Continuity mistake: This happens twice that I can remember in the movie, the first time in the P.T.A, when Martin crashes through the house in his car, when he lands the hubcaps fly off the car, this is very visable, but when we see the car just a few seconds later, the hubcaps are back on the car. This exact thing happens again when Martin and Steve crash through the sign at the junkyard.
Continuity mistake: When Martin and Steve are fleeing from the police (after the junkyard) as they are pulling into the car wash the rear view mirror constantly appears and disappears from the windshield of the car. In the exterior views just prior to the car wash the mirror is missing but appears to be a solid black pasted image from the interior shots. Then, inside the car wash for the exterior views the mirror is present, then is gone with the interior view. In the final fight scenes, the damage to and colour of Steve's jacket appears to change with each time the camera pans back to him inside the crane. (00:56:50)
Continuity mistake: Steve Zahn and Martin Lawrence drive the white van out of the back of the transport truck, which flies off the bridge, and lands on the garbage barge. When it lands, an inside view of both characters shows a destroyed front window. When they climb out, the window now has a few bullet holes in it, but is mainly intact. (00:44:50)
Continuity mistake: In the police chase scene where Earl steals the police car at the impound lot, the car they are in is 26. There are also two officers chasing them in police car 405. When this police car crashes in only show 40. The next car that crashes driven by two other officers is also numbered 26. Later it shows Earl still driving car 26. (00:54:00)
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the trial for Hank, the judge is announced by the bailiff as "the honorable Judge Marsha Gailey presiding". At the end of the scene when she pronounces Hank guilty her name plate says "Hon. M. Healy". (00:17:25 - 00:19:05)
Continuity mistake: When Hank and Charlie investigate the alarm in the start of the movie, they split up. Hank is shown going up a flight of stairs and has his gun and flashlight in the common position cops do when searching. Gun pointed forward with flashlight lying over, hands crossed. The very next shot shows Charlie passing a security monitor that has Hank on surveillance. Hanks' hands are now down at his sides. (00:03:20)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Martin Lawrence and Steve Zahn hijack the driving school car, the passenger side steering wheel is grey in colour and thick. The shot following of the car crashing through the portable toilets, the passenger side steering wheel is black in colour and thinner than the one in previous shots. (00:40:05)sqzdog
Continuity mistake: After getting a ride with the lady in the red station wagon, there is a shot on the outside of them coming towards the camera. You can see in the back seat that Hank is all the way on the left side of the back seat, and Earl is all the way on the right side. But then it cuts to the inside of the car and suddenly Hank is in the middle of the back seat next to Earl. (00:58:45)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: Hank attempts to commander a car and gets slapped silly. So instead, the woman driving gives them a ride. The shot of the outside of the car shows they are on a street with almost no traffic. It cuts to the interior of the car and suddenly there are other vehicles all around the car. (00:58:45)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: On the bridge before Hank uses the cell phone he found from the robbery at the Coke factory, he says that yeah, he is threatening Earl. At that moment, the camera is looking at Hank with Earl next to him and shows only a white car coming along behind Hank. Then the shot cuts to show Earl with Hank next to him, and suddenly a black car appears passing them that we did not see coming in the previous shot. Similar mistakes of cars appearing and disappearing between shots riddles this scene all over. (00:35:15)Quantom X
