Continuity mistake: When Alex first takes out the bubble-squirting gun and threatens Olek Krupa's character with it, the muzzle looks like what one might see on a real gun. However, when we get a closeup of it after Alex shouts at Olek Krupa and chases him away, the muzzle has a gaping hole in it, because it's a different bubble-squirting gun.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, Beaupre and Co. follow a taxi driver to its station and we see it park. It pulls right up to a metal fence.

Continuity mistake: The main bad guy has Alex cornered in Mrs. Hess' garage. Look at the clear plastic cup behind Alex. One shot the cup is upright, the next it is on its side.
