Visible crew/equipment: When Smokey and Craig are chasing the kid that always knocks over their trash cans, in the front view of the kid's bike you can actually see the crewmember's shadows, over the front of the bike.

Revealing mistake: When Craig slams his bedroom door and says, "Y'all ain't never got no money.", the set wall visibly shakes.

Continuity mistake: When Red leaves Craig's house after Deebo takes his chain, you see him running to the car and then you hear his car alarm being de-activated but he doesn't have his keys in his hands, only sunglasses. (01:00:52)


Revealing mistake: During the ice cream truck scene where Smokey counts his money to Big Worm, a girl in a pink shirt can be seen looking at Smokey and into the camera.


Continuity mistake: In the radio that Craig and Smokey have outside is a tape in there but it is gray at first, after Felisha leaves it's white.

Continuity mistake: When Craig's father calls Craig into his room, he asks Craig to hand him the TV Guide, which happens to be very close to his dad before Craig enters the room. After he enters, the TV Guide is at a different spot, further away from his dad.

Audio problem: When Smokey goes back to his house the 2nd time to get to the bathroom, he grabs the doorknob to check if it's locked and you hear the sound of a doorknob turning, but it doesn't match his hand movement. (00:52:04)


Continuity mistake: When Craig's dad is telling him that he has a choice between using a gun or his hands for protection, Craig raises his hands to just below his chin. The camera angle changes twice and you see his hands raised above his chin and then back below his chin. (00:57:58)


Continuity mistake: During the scene where Craig and Smokey are enjoying a joint, one shot shows the joint almost entirely smoked, then the next shot shows it barely lit.

Other mistake: When Smokey calls Big Worm after getting paged, he uses Craig's phone and dials 9 numbers to make the call - too many digits. (01:15:02)


Other mistake: When Craig is in the bathroom with his dad at the end of the movie. You see a close up of Craig's hand and you can see the tan lines from a wedding band.

Smokey: I got mind control over Debo. When say shut up, I be quiet, but when he leave, I be talkin' again.
