The Last Boy Scout

Continuity mistake: After the limo crashed and Joe is standing next to it, take a look at the rear wheel of the limo. In one shot it isn't moving, in the next shot it is. This keeps alternating a few times. (01:22:40)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans are trying to tell the guards of the senator that they are carrying a bomb, they shoot the side window of their car only once but there are at least three or four holes in it. (01:21:10)

Continuity mistake: Watch the Mustang blow up at the beginning of the movie. It looks to be about an 88 GT convert. When it is shown after the explosion it changes to an 86. Two completely different looking cars. Check out the headlamps. (00:17:50)

Continuity mistake: Half way through the film when they are discussing Wayan's drug abuse, his ear piercings change from his left ear to the right ear and then back to the left. Obviously a flipped shot. (00:55:05)

Other mistake: Joe fires lots of shots from his gun at the car in the swimming pool, he then soon after threatens to shoot his daughter with the pistol pressed up against her head. This wouldn't have been possible without burning her from the heat at the end of the barrel, but there's not a mark on her afterwards. (01:19:20)

Continuity mistake: After Halle Berry gets shot, Bruce and Damon are sitting in the Police station talking about Damon's leather pants.

Continuity mistake: In the limo chase scene on the freeway, just after Baynard's bodyguards shoot at Jimmy and Joe in the BMW, the limo speeds away and Joe drives after them, he clashes with two cars and the right side of the BMW gets damaged slightly if you watch closely, then in the following shot as we see the BMW speed off, the side where it was damaged has repaired itself. (01:18:10)

Continuity mistake: Watch closely when Joe and Jimmy steal the white BMW. Jimmy is carrying the briefcase with the money in it, and all he does is get in to the passenger seat with it. Yet at the end of the movie, the police chief finds it in the boot. (01:16:20 - 01:35:20)

Revealing mistake: Close to the end of the film when Joe is in the woods with all the bad guys, he starts to shoot them, as he shoots the first bad guy, if you pause it before he shoots, you can see that there is a rather large lump in the guys forehead where he gets shot, obviously some kind of squib or something to make the effect of being shot in the head. (01:13:30)

Continuity mistake: When Joe uncovers the affair in the bedroom, his wife's robe goes from open in front, to closed (note V of material under her neck) in closeups, to open again in the wide shots. (00:15:10)

Continuity mistake: Got to love how the bullets just glance off Damon's corvette in the shoot out scene when Halle is killed - the corvette appears to have a fiberglass body and should have been covered in bullet holes. (00:30:30)

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the film in the bar scene, we see Joe and Jimmy Dix talking then, Jimmy throws a punch and Joe catches it, knocks Jimmy down and he walks off. If you slow this part down as Joe begins to sit down again, there is a glass on the table half full with scotch, then when Joe reaches for the glass it is turned over and spilt, as he says, "Spilt my warm cup of piss ". (00:23:50)

Factual error: The football game at the end of the movie supposedly takes place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. However, the overhead shots after Milo is killed show that the endzone says "SAN DIEGO". The end zone paint is red, white, and blue. This footage was obviously shot in San Diego, most likely during the Holiday Bowl college football game, which is held in San Diego in mid-December. (01:36:30)

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene with the Cadillac and Sunbird, the Caddy follows the Sunbird over a berm, launching it into the air. When it lands, the right front wire-wheel hub cap comes off. Briefly the plain black wheel is seen. While going over the cliff, the hubcap is back, and is seen to be back on when the Caddy flips into the pool. (01:17:15 - 01:18:05)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce Willis takes Damon Wayans to his house, Damon takes two glasses and a bottle of liquor and pours some of it into the glasses. A few shots later when Damon toasts to his dead son there is much more liquor in his glass even though he didn't refill it. (00:52:40)

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy is arguing with his former colleague in the pool of the LA Stallions, in the first shot of him there are two pink balloons and a red one behind the big guy in the pool. In one particular shot there is only one pink balloon, the other balloons are on a string and are blowing in the wind, then after this shot, it goes back to being two pink balloons and a red one behind the big guy. (00:11:05)

Continuity mistake: When Cory is killed, Joe hears the sirens and puts his weapons up in the air. When the police cars come, Joe walks up to the car that parks directly behind Jimmy's Jaguar. In the shot behind Joe no policeman steps out when the cars drive up, yet, in the following shot a policeman is already standing beside the police car holding his weapon. (00:30:05)
