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)

Other mistake: When Earl and Hank are in the police car, there is one shot where you are looking from Earl's POV. In this POV the rear view mirrow is just a black outline, not a mirror. (00:54:30)

Continuity mistake: When Steve Vahn and Martin Lawrence are zooming in the police car through the car junk yard, they go off a car that is used as a ramp. When the car lands, it shows the front-left hubcap pop out. In the next shot, the hubcap is back on. (00:56:30)

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)

Continuity mistake: When Earl stops the student driver car, you can see the driver get scared and lift his fingers while keeping his hands on the wheel. But the very next shot, his fingers are suddenly balled around the steering wheel again. (00:37:35)

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)

Factual error: When Hank and Charlie first arrive at the warehouse that is being robbed, they shine their spotlight on the opened door. They are shining it through a gate with bars. But in the shots showing the light on the door, there are now shadows cast by the gate. (00:02:25)

Continuity mistake: After their tire is shot out, the van crashes through a big window. In the shot of it breaking through, you can see the van's headlights are off. Two shots later as it lands on its side and slides, one of the headlights is now on, and slowly fades off. (01:15:15)

Lawyer: So Mr. Montgomery, are you claiming there was no bumblebee present at the time of the incident?
Earl Montgomery: No, I'm not. There was a bumblebee present, man.
Lawyer: Oh, good.
Earl Montgomery: And there were birds chirpin'. There were dogs barkin'. Hell, for all I know, there was a chipmunk in the bushes, humping a turtle! You know you gotta be careful with them chipmunks. They'll hump anything!

Trivia

It just so happened that on a day when they needed a wide angle lens to get a shot, for the over head view of Hank shooting through the wall at Nash, that the Spider-Man movie was being filmed only a few blocks away. The director of Spider-Man let the director of National Security borrow their lens long enough to get that shot, which was on screen for only about a second.
