Along Came a Spider

Continuity mistake: Cross is making a model ship. Vickie makes a joke about being "ship-shape"; at cut, she has in her mouth a spoon she did not initially have. (00:12:30)

Revealing mistake: There is a mistake in the (quite dodgy) CGI when the car tumbles down into the dam in the opening scene. At one point, the camera cuts and we can see the car bouncing downwards through the air, and there's a splash of water from where the car bounced off the wall of the dam. But if you pay attention, the splash of water simply vanishes/fades away about two seconds later. Sure, if it was more of a fine mist, it'd make sense that it'd lose visibility, but these were huge streaks of water that should still be visible for quite a bit longer.

Continuity mistake: The first time we see her, Jezzie is talking to Megan. She is holding her clipboard with the hand placed underneath it or above it depending on the angle. (00:05:40)

Other mistake: Mercusio tazes Jezzie and enters her apartment. Look at the wall clock; the time shown is 4:05, when Cross was barely at the Watergate Hotel at that time. (01:13:00)

Jezzie Flannigan: Dr. Cross, Agent Ben Devine. Agent Devine is security systems supervisor.
Ben Devine: Well, for now. We're going to be thrown to the wolves, as soon as they find Megan Rose dead in a ditch.
Alex Cross: Now what makes you so sure that's what's going to happen?
Ben Devine: Me getting fired or the girl in a ditch? Sorry. I'm having a pessimistic day.

Trivia: After Morgan Freeman shoots the guy with the shotgun, the next scene is outside with the news crew and you will see Morgan Freeman walk by the camera dressed up with dreadlocks and cap and keeps looking at the camera. It's Morgan Freeman playing an extra.

Suggested correction: Wow, I find pretty extraordinary that this cameo is not mentioned anywhere else. The guy does look like Morgan Freeman (I am adding a screenshot to the entry), and is not seen anywhere else in the scene, nor Freeman is in the wide shot, so I can't say the entry is false, I just find it quite strange since usually this sort of humorous bit roles get mentioned a lot. Kudos for noticing.
