Corrected entry: In the beginning of this movie Don Johnson is driving a dark full-sized Pontiac. At 36 minutes in, he confronts the widow after parking on the street behind a medium blue Chevy Celebrity. At 42 minutes in, he is leaving the police station and says that the medium blue Celebrity parked illegallly out front is his car. He is seen in subsequent scenes in the Celebrity, but never again in the Pontiac.

Correction: Johnson's personally-owned car is a 1970 Pontiac Executive. He's a Los Angeles cop in 1989 California. During the investigation, he goes to Cottonwood, Arizona in a recent Chevy Celebrity (possibly a rental, more likely a police motor-pool car). His reasons could be gas mileage, dependability or simply that he isn't going to use his own 19-year-old car to go 470 miles on police business. No mistake.


Continuity mistake: When the patrolman is killed at the start of the film, 8 shots are fired. The first is fired with the pistol inches from the center of his chest while he is standing. The remaining seven are fired while he is lying on the ground (gun is pointed down at the ground where the unseen policeman lies). The shooter then runs off. Yet when the scene is investigated, there are five bullet holes in the rear door of the police car, all below waist level. (00:07:40 - 00:08:40)

Bobby Burns: He's no Fed. Fed's are neat. Whoever this guy is, he wouldn't last a week with the Feds. The other guys coming over. Now he is a Fed. Look at him. He's so clean you could shoot him and bury him in the same suit.
