Continuity mistake: When Bruce Willis' daughter asks Damon Wayans to autograph his football card, he signs just his name. But when she looks at it the card reads 'To the daughter of the Last Boy Scout, Jimmy Wills', with perfect penmanship. There is no way he could have written all that.

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the movie as Bruce Willis is talking to another character (I think its his wife I can't remember) the camera keeps switching between close-ups of Bruce Willis and the other character as each of them is speaking. Watch the cuts and bruises on Bruce Willis's face - each time the camera goes back to him the cuts and bruises very obviously change. They change between very severe damage to just slight scratches and light bruising.
