Continuity mistake: In the beginning scene where Queen Latifah is racing on her bike, the bike constantly switches between a BMX and a Mountain Bike.

Continuity mistake: When Washburn is preparing to start the car, as he says, "Back more, back more, more." (referring to the seat), a guy is walking with a light blue shirt and a folder in his hand, but in the next shot when Washburn is setting the mirror, the same guy is walking by again. (00:19:40)

Continuity mistake: When Washburn is trying to get the Daewoo out of the parking spot, there is a leopard print pad on the seat belt strap, and at times the strap moves because he is bumping the cars in front of and behind him. However, when Belle gets out of the passenger side and tells him to move over the position of the leopard print pad changes from on his shoulder in the wide shot, to behind his shoulder during close up, to back on his shoulder in their wide shot.

Continuity mistake: When Washburn is reaching back into the backseat of Belle's cab to get his gun, the camera is constantly showing his butt very close to Belle's face. However, in a wide shot immediately following, Washburn's rear end is almost completely out of the passenger-side window.

Continuity mistake: This happens towards the end of the film, when the bank robbers are about to change the girl for the money. When they begin to make the change we can see that at first the side rear windows of the BMW on the driver's side of the cab are up. In the next shot however, the windows are rolled down and immediately after that, in the next shot, they're up again. After that they disappear and don't show again. (01:19:50)

Continuity mistake: At the end when Washburn is driving the car, Lieutenant Robbins has the door open when she says "No, he don't got it." She is never seen closing the door but in the wide shot when the car is driving in reverse, the door has been closed.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Queen Latifah comes back from her bike race she takes off her helmet. Between shots her hair goes from perfect to a bit out of place.

Continuity mistake: When Latifah is let go from her first interrogation, Jimmy Fallon runs out after her with a pretzel in his hand. She gets angry and pushes him against the wall. In one shot he is still holding the pretzel,and then the next shot Latifah is, and then the next shot no one is. It's not on the ground after so they didn't drop it.

Continuity mistake: At the end when Belle realizes she's been shot and opens her jacket, the necklace draped over her shirt appears and disappears between shots.

Continuity mistake: At the store crashing scene, where Washburn killed the parrot, when the cars crash and stop we can see that the feathers and the garbage fall upon the car, but in the next shot we can see feathers and garbage only in front of it. (00:16:10)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Washburn and the other undercover cop are attempting to buy calling cards from the Cubans, Washburn asks for the guy hiding in the other room to come out. The guy does come out, and he leaves the door open to the room he was just in. The next few shots go back and forth between Washburn and the head Cuban guy facing the two other Cubans. Each time they show these two guys, the door behind them is open. After they all stop laughing, they show the guys again, and the door is closed. In the next shot, the head Cuban guy yells that Washburn is a cop, and runs through the now open again door.

Continuity mistake: When Belle is teaching Washburn to drive in her taxi, Belle turns on the radio and changes it to a Natalie Cole song. Washburn is leaning forward and shaking his hands in front of him. Just as Belle says her line, the camera films from the side of the taxi and Washburn is suddenly leaning back and his hands are not out in front of him any more. (01:09:20 - 01:10:05)

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie when Washburn is driving the taxi backwards to get Williams to the hospital with Lt. Robbins. Lt. Robbins is sitting in the backseat behind Washburn, and Williams in the backseat behind the passenger seat. After Washburn spins the car from driving in reverse to driving forward, Lt. Robbins is shown sitting in the backseat behind the passenger seat while talking on her cellphone. She is talking with her head turned slightly to her left, and Williams is not on her right side any longer. Williams is returned to seat behind the passenger seat after they crash into the lobby at the hospital, and Lt. Robbins and Washburn use the passenger side rear door to get Williams out.
