Continuity mistake: During the first chat between Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie (she's under the car) there are a number of wrenches or tools that can be clearly seen by Jolie's character when she is on the ground. Every time the camera cuts from Jolie to Cage, then back on to Jolie, the tools are always in a different position or place than they were a second ago. First, they are together, then they are far apart, then they are in a different direction, and so on. (00:28:32)

Continuity mistake: When the young kids go to steal the SUV at the party a security car chases them, with another blocking the road ahead. The shot of them racing towards the roadblock is obviously all one sequence, because their windscreen already has two bullet holes in it as it approaches the security car, long before the guard actually shoots at them. (01:25:15)

Continuity mistake: The Jaguar XJ220 is dropped off at the docks twice, when there is only one on the list. When the car is originally marked off the list, it's referred to as Stacy (This is actually the point when a different Jaguar is stolen). Later on when Sway drops off the XJ220 at the docks, she refers to it as Nadine. (01:03:25 - 01:20:55)

Continuity mistake: When Memphis is leaving the restaurant where his mom works, after he has talked to her, we see that there are glass windows on either side of the door as he exits. When the angle changes to show the detectives, there is suddenly a brick wall next to him and a little drug store. Where did the restaurant go? (00:20:56)

Continuity mistake: Memphis skids when seeing the road accident, and it is at a noticeable angle. The camera cuts to the police arriving, then back. And the Shelby GT 500 is now straight for the line up to the stunt that follows. (01:44:10)

Continuity mistake: After Colitri shoots the valve which burns Castlebecks hand, he drops his gun. It can be seen sliding towards the edge Colitri gets pushed over. After Colitri is pushed over, Memphis and Castlebeck stare at each other and Castlebeck retrieves his weapon, it is now only inches from the boiler, not the edge. (01:51:25)

Continuity mistake: When Donnie and Fred are stealing the jaguar from a parking garage the window is over half-way rolled up on the way out (it's moving in the wide shot, but has definitely stopped half-way in closeup). When the other guy comes and puts the gun in Donnie's face, the window is all the way down (otherwise he couldn't get the gun in). When Donnie opens the door, it's half-way up again. (01:02:00)

Continuity mistake: When Memphis is driving Eleanor he backs up and hits the right rear-view mirror. He stops, leans out the window and sees that it is dangling. The very next shot it is back to normal and it stays that way for most of the rest of the movie. (01:34:34)

Continuity mistake: You can clearly read many of the makes/names of the cars to be stolen on the blackboard in Otto's garage, yet when they radio in the cars as they are boosted they refer to them by different names, even as Otto crosses off the cars with the correct names back at the garage. Example: #13 '67 Chevy Corvette Stingray - Stacey on blackboard - is called Lindsey when boosted, and #23 '56 Ford T-Bird - Susan - is called Sharon. (01:02:56)

Continuity mistake: When Sphinx blows up the black gang member's car, within the space of a split-second, he is very far away from the explosion. He lights the rag, the car blows up, and then miraculously, he is 20-30 metres away instantly. (00:34:30)

Continuity mistake: When Memphis and the gang are stealing the Ferraris and driving them back, he tells Otto "Diana, Tricia, Nadine, and Rose are on their way." There's just one slight problem - there is no Ferrari named Tricia on the list, as you can see when Otto crosses them off. (01:06:30)

Continuity mistake: When "Gilligan" steals the '83 El Dorado, Donny finds a package of heroin in the trunk and spills some on the floor. When Kasselbeck shows up, Memphis tells Donny to cover it up with his foot. In this part, it looks like only a small amount of heroin. Later, when Kasselbeck walks over to the driver's side of the Caddy, it shows Donny's foot again, and it appears to be a larger amount of heroin, at least twice as much. (00:54:46)

Continuity mistake: When Donny steals the Jaguar from the parking garage, the car crossed off the list is a Jaguar XJ220. The car stolen is actually a Jaguar XJ6. (01:03:20)

More trivia for Gone in 60 Seconds

Question: In the scene leading up to where the mirror is knocked off and the car stalls, there appears to be a billboard in the background with a cowboy with his head in profile. In large letters above it is what appears to be the word "Impotent." (Not "Important"). Does anyone know what is with that?

Answer: That billboard was part of an anti-smoking campaign from about 18 years ago. The image mocks the iconic Marlboro Man, with the cigarette in his mouth flaccid and drooping. The word "Impotent" is rendered large in the same type style as the old Marlboro logo. In much smaller text (not visible in the film), the sign reads, "WARNING: Smoking Causes Impotence."
