The Last Boy Scout

Joe (Willis) finds out he is going to be framed for the murder of Senator Baynard (the Senator that he hates so much). At the Football Coliseum, Marcone (Willingham) and Milo (Negron) realise their suitcase bomb plan was ruined by Joe and Jimmy (Wayons). They then plan for Milo to shoot the senator from a distance with a high powered rifle. Jimmy saves the Senator's life by throwing a football at him which knocks him to the ground and dodges the bullets. Joe climbs up to the light towers where Milo was shooting from and they have a short fight before Milo is shot off the edge by police officers. He falls and gets sliced by the blades of a helicopter flying below the tower. Joe dances a jig on the tower while every football supporter watches him. Jimmy puts the suitcase bomb in a spot, where Marcone finds it and takes it. Unaware he has the bomb (instead of the suitcase with the money), Marcone opens the case and is blown up. Joe forgives Sarah for sleeping with Mike and they get back together.

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)

Question: At what point does the suitcase with the money in it get placed in the trunk of the White BMW? It's clear that when Hallenbeck and Jimmy are running out of the rich white guy's house and take his car, you can see Jimmy putting the (money) briefcase in the car with him, and at no time in the trunk. Then, when they get back with the other briefcase containing the bomb, Jimmy also puts this case in the car with him, in the backseat. So when did anybody put the money briefcase in the trunk?

Answer: You're right, I reviewed the clip. You see Joe holding the briefcase and Jimmy run out of the rich man's house, then get directly into his car. At no time do you see him putting the briefcase anywhere. It's most likely a bad editing job.
