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)
Other mistake: Donny steals a older Jaguar from a parking garage in one scene in the movie. Yet if you look at the blackboard with the list of cars, you'll see that there is no older Jaguar like the one Donny stole. There is just the Jaguar XJ220 (that is dropped off near the end of the movie) and a '99 Jaguar XK8, both of which are the newer models.
Continuity mistake: When the group is entering the Ferrari warehouse, we see the garage door opening and they all turn their flashlights on. The camera changes shots and backs away, now Tumbler's light is suddenly off. (01:01:30)
Continuity mistake: When Toby is hacking the D.M.V. mainframe, he says he's found the address of the Jaguar XJ220, calling the car by the name "Hillary." But when Otto crosses it off the list, he calls her Stacey, and when Sway comes back with the actual XJ220, she says that "Bernadine" just took her for a ride. (00:40:30)
Factual error: When Memphis is driving the GT500 through the irrigation ditch, he was approaching the motor's redline in 4th gear, he then hit the nitrous. In that case nitrous will not increase top speed. The only way to increase the top speed of a car is to 1. Get new gears in the transmission or rear end. 2. Get a motor with a higher redline. Nitrous won't do either. (01:32:20)
Continuity mistake: When they enter the shipyard during the final chase scene, you can clearly see the camera mounted inside the police car as it jumps and crashes into the frontloader. (01:35:56)
Factual error: In the shot showing everyone getting out of the van, one person is seen opening the rear door from the inside and rolling out. This van is a Chevy Venture, the name clearly shows as the door is closing. These types of vans do not have a handle inside the rear door, making it impossible to open from the inside. (01:21:24)
Continuity mistake: When Memphis is talking to the English guy during the scene when Kip is trapped in the car crusher, the English guy states that 80,000 pounds of pressure are required to crush a car. This is false, car crushers exert only 3000 pounds of pressure per square inch and this is enough to split a v8 engine in half and flatten the car to the point where it is only 8-10 inches thick. (00:15:42)
Continuity mistake: After the detective gets the idea of the black light in garage with the old car list, the camera cuts to the garage where they're walking in. You will notice when they walk in that one of them has a black light and the other has a White bulb. It pans down to the debris on the floor and he's now got a black light.
