Continuity mistake: Pay attention in the beginning of the movie, when Ordell is showing some "girls with guns" to De Niro. While he suggests to run fast the tape, he presses the REWIND key. The expected one would be the FF key. (00:04:25)
44 year old flight attendant Jackie Brown (Grier) gets caught with gun dealer Ordell Robbie's (Jackson) money and to get the ATF off her back she sets up Ordell with her new friend, a bail bondsman named Max Cherry (Forster). But what the ATF doesn't know, is that they are part of her wild plan to get Ordell's half million dollars and get off scott free. However, she has to do it under the noses of both Ordell, the ATF man and a local cop. What she doesn't know is Ordell's blonde beach bunny (Fonda) wants the money for herself as does Ordell's ex-con friend (DeNiro).
Trivia: In one of the deleted scenes on the DVD (the one between Jackie and the cop in the restaurant) the cop is about to call over a waitress and he says 'Garçon' Jackie then corrects him and says 'Garçon means boy.' The same thing happens in Pulp Fiction when Tim Roth shouts for a waitress. Tarantino has said that the 'Garçon Waitress' will probably be a waitress in all of his films.
