Corrected entry: In the taxi, the fake Brill brakes to avoid hitting the guy in the wheelchair but is immediately tail-ended by a another car. Instead of being hit by the taxi, the guy and his wheelchair disappear without trace.

Correction: This is because the man in the wheelchair has gone past the front of the car, hence the fake Brill's reaction - ie, he sighs with relief. Therefore, when the car hits him from behind, the man in the wheelchair is uninjured.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, when Will Smith comes into the conference room to find out about the mob/union situation, he is told that Larry Cash is in the hospital (unnamed). But then he calls his secretary in and asks her to send a case of Chianti to Larry Cash and tells her Larry is in St. Luke's.

Correction: St Luke's may simply be the nearest hospital. By being told Larry Cash was at "...the hospital", Dean may have assumed he meant St Lukes. He must have been right. No one corrected him.

Corrected entry: When Will Smith finds the lady dead in her apartment, he is wearing gloves in one shot and in the next shot they are gone and he's leaving fingerprints everywhere.

Correction: There is a clear shot showing Smith taking off his gloves just before he bends down to turn over the body. Stupid perhaps, but not a continuity error.

Other mistake: When Will Smith checks into the hotel and his credit cards are invalid, we see that the time is 5:38 and it is daylight outside. The only problem with this is that it is supposed to be around December given all the Christmas decorations. It would be dark then in the Baltimore, not soaked with daylight.

Robert Clayton Dean: I was shopping for some lingerie. That's still legal, isn't it?
David Pratt: Were you buying that for your wife?
Robert Clayton Dean: No I was picking something up for myself, I do a little cross dressing on the weekends. You know, you'd be surprised how a nice pair of edible panties can make a guy feel sexy.

Trivia: The cat that Gene Hackman has is the same cat that was in Men in Black, and similarly, the cat is put into a bag in this film just like in MIB.
