The Fast and the Furious
The Fast and the Furious mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dom pulls up to the street race with his team, he clearly has indiglo gauges. When the 4 cars actually race, Dom glances at his speedometer, and...no indiglo. (00:12:40)

Continuity mistake: When Brian pulls up in the warehouse alley in his Eclipse look at the car to his left. If it looks like Hector's car with no hood and the same chrome engine and graphics on the windshield, that's because it is. But when Hector says "That's mine." he points across the lot and the car is still next to them. (00:11:55)

Continuity mistake: At the scene where Johnny Tran pumps oil into the mechanic's mouth, the shirt of the mechanic changes from REALLY wet, to almost dry in every shot. (00:52:45)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when Brian drives the Eclipse, if you watch closely he redlines then shifts to second. The problem is that when they show the over head picture he shifts into second once again. (00:03:29)

The Fast and the Furious mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene in which Jesse is shot watch his legs. In the first shot his left leg is crossed and under his right leg. In the second shot both his legs are stretched before him. (01:31:27)

The Fast and the Furious mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Brian is topping out his car in the stadium parking lot at the beginning, it looks like he's shifting and steering with the same hand, as the shot is reversed. Easiest way to tell is the "Sparco" on his seat is backwards. (00:03:29)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dom, Leon and Letty arrive at that place where Brian and Mia are calling the ambulance to rescue Vince, you can see that the car whirls up some dust so the front of the car is covered in dust. In the next shot, however, the car is clean again. (01:27:15)

The Fast and the Furious mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene of the "race wars" when Jesse runs against the Johnny Tran's Honda S2000, at the moment when Jesse pushes his NOS button, his car has a red racing steering wheel, maybe a MOMO wheel, and three gauges on the "A column" (at the left of the windshield column) of his Jetta. When the shot changes to Jesse when he says "ha," the red MOMO wheel becomes in a grape Jetta wheel without NOS buttons and the gauges disappear from the car. (01:13:05)

Continuity mistake: This mistake occurs during the first racing scene between the four guys. It happens after Jesse and Ja Rule look under the hood of Brian's Eclipse. As soon as Brian says 'Am I worthy?' and he is in the middle of his sentence, it cuts to a different camera angle and shows Brian smiling but not moving his mouth while his words are still being said. (00:14:40)

Continuity mistake: When Brian pulls up in his red pick-up truck, note the distance from his truck to the car in front, this distance is is reduced somewhat when you look in the background in all following shots. (00:04:00)

The-Immortal
The Fast and the Furious mistake picture

Continuity mistake: On the very first race (in where Ja Rule takes part in the event), Dom (Vin Diesel) is driving a red Mazda RX-7. After the drivers line up on the starting line, Dom lifts up the passenger seat cushion to his Mazda to reveal a nitrous oxide system with a spinning nozzle and two gauges. Immediately after you see Dom spin the nozzle open, the camera does a close up of the nozzle and gauges in the next shot. Note how the gauge frames extended out from the surface (a good distance) then turn completely flat for the close up, even the nozzle gets shifted from one side of the guages to the other. (00:16:00)

Continuity mistake: During the scene at the Diner when Brian is asking Dom for a slice of the action on how he makes the extra cash for car parts etc. Right as Brian says "Now whatever it is you're in on, I want in on it to", we see Dom with a grin on his face, the camera then cuts to a closer view and the expression on his face has changed. (01:05:50)

Scrappy

Continuity mistake: When Dom and Brian are racing the train, the train numbers on the front of the train appear backwards. As soon as they cross the train, the train numbers appear forward: 3134. (01:37:22)

The Fast and the Furious mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the final hijacking scene, Dom pulls in front of the truck so Vince can get pull out the passenger side windshield with his harpoon gun. However, if you look closely right before Vince shoots his gun for the first time, you can see that the passenger side windshield is not even there. The glare coming off of the driver side windshield makes it very easy to see the difference between the two. (01:21:19)

AFosteROTC

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when we see Brian and Vince fighting, they are first fighting in front of Brian's truck, then in front of the car, then back to the truck. (00:07:30)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Brian is with the Muse, Tanner and the FBI watchdog in the safe house kitchen, Muse makes a smart crack about getting off over Mia Toretto, then Brian pushes Muse very forcefully to the left of Tanner, but Muse ends up landing on the floor to the right of Tanner. (00:52:15)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when, Dom knocks the Chinese guy off of his motorbike. In the previous shot if you slow it down you can see that it's a street full of houses to the left and right, but these suddenly vanish and are replaced by a big hill which the Chinese guy rolls down. (01:29:55)

The-Immortal
The Fast and the Furious mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Brian and Dom start to run from the cops, they go around a corner. If you look in the rear windshield, the chasing police car goes right through the intersection, the camera goes to a different shot, and the police car crashes. (00:25:10)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Brian is chasing Johnny Tran, he stops the car and shoots Johnny. Johnny spins out and falls off the bike. While he falls off the bike you can see a shopping cart on the side of the road, but when Brian runs over to see if he is dead, the cart is gone. (01:34:15)
