Kindergarten Cop

Continuity mistake: When the school is on fire the sprinkler system is activated, but when Mr. Kimble goes from the 'raining' first floor to the second floor to search for Dominic, there is no evidence of any water from the sprinkler system.

Continuity mistake: After the kindergarten class have finished their speech, the little kid who spoke last turns around and begins to jump up and down. When the shot changes as the principal starts to speak, he is facing the front, standing perfectly still.

Visible crew/equipment: When Kimble says to the class "we're gonna play a game: who is my daddy, and what does he do ", a white tape marker is visible on the carpet, to the left of Kimble's chair. (00:35:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where John and Phoebe arrive in Oregon, it's raining. When we see the two in the car, the wipers are on, yet not a single drop of rain hits the windshield. The only rain on the windshield are drops that are just out of reach of the wipers. (00:18:38)


Continuity mistake: When Kimble grabs Crisp and throws him onto a table, a coffee cup gets knocked over and rolls off the table. In the next shot it is now on the table and upright. (00:13:30)

Other mistake: When Det. Kimble comes out of the school on the stretcher, we see all his class gathered by his side yet still next to the school. Standard FEMA operating procedures (and common sense) would have had the kids far away from the school and not standing near the entrance emergency workers are actively using to get the fire under control.


Revealing mistake: When they show a street shot of Kimble looking for Crisp, right before he walks into the salon, they show the marquee of the movies that are being shown. Listed on the marquee it says " Jamie Gerts." It should be " Gertz" (00:10:00)


Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the film while the school is on fire, Kimble's partner runs to the side door, gun drawn. Phoebe is spotted by Crisp's mom and is hit by her car, knocking her down. Crisps mom's hair is pulled back, but when she is in the school locker room and discovers Crisp shot dead her hair style is different, not pulled back.

Continuity mistake: Earlier in the movie... when Kimble is looking for Cindy (just before the "line-up") and Arnold says the line - "Alright party's over, everyone go home" he tosses some guy onto the glass coffee table which gets completely destroyed. Arnold's next line a moment later is, "next time, my place." The next scene, the coffee table appears good as new and the the guy is no longer there.

Revealing mistake: In the fire scene at the end when Dominic first gets separated from Det. Kimble as he's helping the little girl, we see his hands around a stuffed ferret and not the real one he put in his sweater earlier.


Revealing mistake: In the shot where Dominic is falling from the radio tower from afar, he supposedly gets hung up by his backpack. However the lack of tension on the straps indicate that something else kept him from falling. We see the proper tension on the backpack when the scenes change to an up close shot.


Continuity mistake: When Det. Kimble opens the door in the school to see the two kids making out, we see the hallway behind him is clear of smoke. However, in the next shot the hallway is now full of smoke again.


Revealing mistake: When Dominic climbs the electrical tower, he is facing the ladder. In the next scene, his back is facing the ladder (when the bird hits him). When he begins to fall, a safety line becomes visible.

Question: Why does Zack have bruises everywhere on his body,also,why does his mom lie about it?

Answer: Because he's being abused by his father. As explained in the movie the father beats him and his mother as well. So she has to lie about Zack's black and blue marks. In one scene the mother explains Mr. Kimble that the father is undergoing therapy. He says that if it happens again he will report it. As Zack shows bruises again, Arnold's character goes out and beats Zack's father.
