Directed by: F. Gary Gray

Starring: Ice Cube, Nia Long, Chris Tucker

Genres: Comedy, Drama

Corrected entry: Right after Hector almost hits the Preacher, Hector drives away and you see the preacher and Mrs. Parker walking into her house in the background. Smokey tells his story about smoking with Hector, and then Smokey stops talking and points to across the street, where you once again see the Preacher and Mrs. Parker walking into the house. (00:29:36)


Correction: The preacher doesn't walk into the house the first shot, he walks up to flirt with Mrs. Parker, then the next shot of them, he gets to go in the house.

Corrected entry: In the scene that's in black and white, where Smokey tells Craig about the time Hector gave him angel dust, if you look to the far left of the screen, you see a man sitting on a brick wall. He wasn't supposed to be in the movie, but because that brick wall was in his yard, he appeared in the shot.

Correction: How is this a mistake? If you found out through research/documentary that something was not intended to be on screen, it is trivia, so long as that object is acceptable to the plot/timeframe of the movie. No mistake is made by him being there.


Corrected entry: On the back of the VHS case it reads 'Like Smokey who has 24 hours to pay back Deebo...' Actually, Smokey has to pay back Big Worm.

Correction: Pictures or text on DVD or VHS cases are not parts of the movie, and are not valid movie mistakes.


Corrected entry: To elaborate upon the mistakes on the back of the VHS box, it says that Smokey has 24 hours to pay back the money. This is untrue, as Worm warned him about his money in the afternoon, and Smokey had to pay him back at ten o'clock that night.

Correction: Artwork and text on DVD/VHS cases are not parts of the movie itself, and are therefore not counted as movie mistakes.


Corrected entry: When Craig's girlfriend comes to see him, she pulls up in her car and the passenger window is closed. When Craig and her walk back to the car from the house, the window is now open. (00:53:35)


Correction: You see her roll down the window before parking behind the tree.

Corrected entry: When Deebo is riding his bike to Craig's house the first time, you see Smokey on the left side sitting down, then when they hide everything Smokey is sitting on the right.

Correction: That is not correct. Smokey is always seen on the left side. And when Deebo rides up, Smokey continues to be on the left.


Corrected entry: At the very start of the movie, you see 2 chairs and Craig's boombox on the porch of Craig's house, but after they get back from Smokey's house Smokey tells Craig to go into the house and get the boombox. (00:24:42)


Correction: No, that's a milk crate they use as a table.

Corrected entry: When Craig smokes a joint with Smokey for the first time, Smokey gives the joint back to Craig and you see Craig holding it in his right hand. The camera angle changes and he's now holding it in his left hand. (00:36:46)


Correction: Craig holds the joint with his right hand and is about to switch hands and pauses while Smokey says something to him. When the camera cut occurs, Craig's left hand comes up off screen holding the joint. However, his left hand was in his lap near his right hand, and since he was already planning on switching hands, this move is easily and quickly done while not in view of the camera.


Corrected entry: At the very start of the movie, you see 2 chairs on the porch of Craig's house, but after Craig is finished lifting weights, Smokey grabs one of the chairs that was already on the porch from the front lawn and puts it back on the porch.


Correction: A few moments of time have passed, so while Craig was continuing to lift weights, Smokey probably went and got the chair so he could sit down.

Audio problem: When Smokey is spanking the boy who knocks over the trash cans with his belt, notice he only spanks him a few times yet the sound of the spanks is double the actual amount.
