The Last Boy Scout

Corrected entry: Bruce Willis incorrectly states that "Bom" is a cuss-word in Poland. As a matter of fact, there is no such word as "Bom" in the Polish language.

Correction: He's joking.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie there is a scene where Joe is sleeping in his car and little boys throw a dead squirrel inside the car. When the camera goes back from Joe to the boys, one of them flickers a glance at the camera.

Correction: When a character happens to glance at the camera lens it is treated as if the camera is not there - so the character is really only looking at that 'empty' area, which coincidentally is that of the camera's position.

Corrected entry: After Bruce puts the explosive into the back of his car and shuts the boot. The boot opens again. Therefore the bad guys don't need the keys.

Correction: The trunk does pop back open but when Jimmy Dix gets hit in the groin by the thug he falls/leans on the trunk closing it completely.


Corrected entry: Bruce Willis discovers his wife is cheating on him with his best friend. He notices the toilet seat is up and that her hair isn't wet and says "sometimes you forget I'm a detective." If he's such a great detective, how come he didn't notice his best friend's car parked in front of his house?

Correction: This is explained a bit further on in the movie. Joe only "suspected" his wife was cheating on him with his best friend, and he also says during that earlier conversation, "What would you like me to say huh, f**k you Sarah?" He did not want to say anything until he was 100 percent sure.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Willis and Wayans chase the car containing Milo's friends, and it crashes, the telephone suddenly rings in the crashed car. Willis picks it up, but doesn't say anything, but the first thing Milo says is "Hey motherf***er". Lucky guess, considering he surely should have been expecting one of his own men to pick up the phone.

Correction: Milo knew that Willis would get the phone...Milo saw the crash from the freeway above while driving with Willis's daughter

Corrected entry: There is simply no way that a helicopter could survive the impact of a human body falling vertically on the spinning rotor blades. The blades would be torn off or mangled too badly to work, and the helicopter would crash.

Correction: As a helicopter pilot I can tell you that not only would the helicopter survive, at most the pilot MIGHT feel a little turbulance.

Corrected entry: When the three bad guys throw Jimmy Dix off of the road onto the car below, if you slow it down, you can see, it is not the actor but a stunt double. (00:56:50)


Correction: According to this site's rules, if you have to use slow motion to see something, it's not a valid mistake.

Corrected entry: When Joe is talking to his wife in the bedroom, at the beginning, when the closet door opens the reflection of a crew member, wearing a white cap, is on the door. (Must use frame by frame.) (00:15:00)


Correction: The rules of this site are very clear - if you have to use freeze frame, the 'mistake' is invalid.

Corrected entry: Bruce Willis gets a 5 inch blade rammed fully into the area above his knee near the end of the movie, but is able to walk perfectly down the sidewalk the next morning while talking with Damon Wayans.

Correction: There's nothing at all to state it's the next day - it could be long after the stabbing.

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)
