Corrected entry: When the Mini Coopers leave the sewer pipe, the lead car jumps out of the pipe and lands on its nose and then carries on undamaged. Mini Coopers have flimsy thin plastic front bumpers and would shatter in that kind of impact.
Corrected entry: The Mini Coopers do not drive into/past any turnstyles when entering the LA subway.
Corrected entry: After the Italian Job, when the men are in the mountains celebrating, they are supposedly surrounded by snow, but oddly enough when they talk, you can't see their breath. This is repeated a few minutes later after they get out of the icy water.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Minis jump out of the tunnel with the gold and Handsome Rob (in the white Mini) tells Left Ear to open his door, they take-out one of the motorcycle guys. The door gets ripped off in the collision. For the rest of the movie the white Mini has an intact passenger door.
Corrected entry: "The real Napster" is sleeping and his roommate supposedly steals the Napster program by ejecting a floppy disk and taking it. The problem is that no floppy could ever hold such a huge program. A CD might be able to, but at least 300 floppy disks would have to be used in order to actually transport Napster. One floppy disk can hold 1.36 megabytes, Napster is definitely much bigger than that.
Corrected entry: During the double cross when Edward Norton shoots Donald Sutherland, the others escape by driving off the bridge in their van. Under water, the survivors are using scuba gear to keep alive in the OPEN van under water, but no air bubbles are seen just above on the calm surface of the water. Since there were no air bubbles, Edward Norton is satisified that everyone under water is dead.
Corrected entry: When Napster is puting the flag pin on Stella's chest, he says he had trouble putting the corsage on his prom date, but corsages go on your wrist for a girl, not your shoulder.
Corrected entry: In the end, how come Lyle reveals to the world that he is the real Napster? He put it all over the screens in the traffic light operating place so they'd be looking to catch him for crashing their computers.
Corrected entry: With as much damage as the tail rotor of the helicopter caused to the Mini certainly the tail rotor would have been damaged quite a bit. That much damage would have caused it to lose a lot of yaw (side to side) control and cause an out of balance condition, but it continues to fly normally.
Corrected entry: When the gang celebrate in the Alps before Charlie's surprise, they're sipping Dom Perignon champagne straight from the bottles. It looks like they're drinking water as it's quite impossible to drink champagne from the bottle, the real stuff will foam heavily when it comes out [and especially in one's mouth]. (00:17:40)
Corrected entry: The three Minis drive from street level into the subway entrance, down the stairs onto a platform and then on onto the rails. Can't be done - to get to the platform they'd have to get through (very, very solid) passenger turnstiles. There is no station in L.A. that doesn't have them.
Corrected entry: In the movie, when they get the new Minis, only one of them is a Mini Cooper S. After Wrench is done with them however, they are all Sses. Surely Wrench couldn't have gotten the exact Mini Cooper S parts, and wouldn't he have to change some of the decals, the S has some "S" only decals.
Corrected entry: In a scene near the end of the film when Edward Norton's character is flying in the helicopter, you are shown a side view of the famous 'HOLLYWOOD' sign. However from the side the H and O are turned around so that the sign reads 'OHLLYWOOD'. In the next camera angle you see the letters straight on and they are correctly placed.
Corrected entry: When Stella writes the safe combination on the wall she writes the numbers 7-17. The first 7 has a line through it, but in the number 17 the line is omitted. There should be a line through that seven as well. No one would write the first seven one way and the next a different way.
