Continuity mistake: In the scene where the logs are falling off of the hill, one of them hits the police car. In the scene where it hits, there is no kind of impact on the front of the car. But in the next shot when the car flips over, there is a dent in the front of the car.


Continuity mistake: When Cris Johnson foils the robbery attempt at the casino, the scene shows that he drops the gun effortlessly and points at the robber in an inward direction (distance between his fingertips is closer than his shoulder width). Furthermore, Cris utters, "It's his gun. He's gonna shoot you people," after dropping the gun. When Callie Ferris tries to convince her supervisor to capture Cris, the scene (presumably taken from a surveillance camera) shows that Cris gives a little bit of thrust when he drops the gun and points at the robber in an outward direction. Also, Cris only utters "it's his gun," in the surveillance tape. The first time code is the approximate time of the robbery attempt and the second time code is the conversation between Callie and her supervisor. (00:06:45 - 00:11:25)

After she takes the gift to her student the earrings are pearl studs for the rest of the movie.

Continuity mistake: Right after Chris "sees" he and Liz kissing, they actually do kiss and Liz puts her hand and the lower part of his back. She starts to move it up and the scene cuts without time lapse and her hand is suddenly up by his ear. (00:43:35)
