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.

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.

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.

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.

Continuity mistake: In the limo chase scene on the freeway, Joe and Jimmy overtake a big truck and pull in front of it, yet in two following shots, if you look out the back of the window, the big truck has disappeared, then reappears on a wide shot.

Continuity mistake: After Halle Berry gets shot, Bruce and Damon are sitting in the Police station talking about Damon's leather pants. Bruce finishes his cigarette and reaches into his pocket for another, but then they change camera angles and show him already smoking a half gone cigarette.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ".

xx:xx:xx

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.

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.

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.

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.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where they retrieve the evidence from Halle Berry's apartment, they come outside during broad daylight, but when they get in the car to listen to the tape it's pitch black outside.

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.

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.

xx:xx:xx

The-Immortal

Factual error: There is a scene where Joe is shown taking a bullet for President Carter. The scene then shows Darian visiting Joe in the hospital after the shooting holding a picture that she drew for him. Darian looks to be about 6 or 7 years old, yet this film takes place in 1991, and she is supposed to be 13 in the movie. If she would have been 6 or 7 when Carter was in office, she would be well into her late teens by 1991.

Revealing mistake: When Bruce Willis is outside the bar waiting for Halle Berry, and he gets hit over the head with a baton. If you slow the shot down, you can see that the baton bends when clashing with his head.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy finds the tape in the fake spray can, it's a micro cassette. Later, when they try to play it in the car, it magically changes to a standard audio cassette.

Continuity mistake: On the freeway chase scene, when Jimmy Dix and Joe Hallenbeck are shot at, the window gets shattered by a bullet. In some later shots, the window is completely intact.

Factual error: When the black car lands upside down in the pool, you can see that it lands as if it were dropped straight down. The car should have hit the pool at an angle, for it was speeding off a hilltop at a very high rate of speed when it entered the pool.

Revealing mistake: 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.

Continuity mistake: When Wayans and Willis are chasing the limo on the freeway, Wayans draws a picture of a bomb to hold up to the guys in the limo. He draws a large circle with about 6 lines coming out of it with the word "BOM" underneath it. When he holds the picture up at the window, there is only 1 line radiating from the circle.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Joe and Milo are up on the steel structure where the stadium lights are, just before Joe throws the bag of ammo over the edge, a sniper runs to the right in the background, then in a following shot, the sniper runs to the right again. It is the same sniper.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy Dix is in the bar, and says " to Alex the astronaut" he is holding the glass with his left hand. In the following shot he drinks it with his right, then it switches back to his left.

Revealing mistake: After Hollenbeck has been tasered and dragged unconscious to the bad guys car, they open the door to put him in and lift him. Hollenbeck uses his right leg to step forward.

Continuity mistake: Big Ray Walston screams that his nose was broken, and has blood coming out of it, despite the fact that Jimmy Dix blatantly hit him in the forehead with a football.

Visible crew/equipment: Close to the end of the film when we see Joe in the woods with all the bad guys, he has his hand in the puppet that his daughter gave to him, now as the camera pans down from a wide shot, look to the right beyond the tree and there is a crewmember standing next to a red ladder, the shot is quick but very visible.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the film where we see Joe and his best friend Mike standing outside of Joe's house, if you look Joe is standing in front of the tree and his car is parked in line with the tree, yet when Mike walks away and Joe turns around, the car is now parked almost in front of the tree, and Joe is standing behind the tree.

Continuity mistake: When Joe has been kidnapped, and then killed one of the bad guys, Milo says to Pablo, "Take the corpse out of here and fix Mr Hallenbeck a drink." Pablo is holding his gun in his right hand, but in the next wide shot Pablo is now holding his gun in his left hand.

Continuity mistake: When Joe and Jimmy are walking down a tunnel going to Marcone's office, several players are running down the tunnel, and then you hear the voice of the big guy (Jimmy broke his nose in the pool scene). Lots of players are running down the tunnel, yet when the big guy grabs him all you see are the players in the distance, when we should see loads more players running past Jimmy, Joe and the big guy.

Revealing mistake: This is when Joe finds out his wife is cheating on him and shoots their wedding photo. If the bullet hit the photo, where is the bullet hole? It shows that something other than a gun was used to destroy the frame in this shot.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

Factual error: In the final scene Dix is carrying a beer in the hand he just got shot in. After being shot in the palm of the hand there would be too much bone/ muscle trauma to be able to grip anything for quite a while, if ever.

EMTurbo

Continuity mistake: At the police station, just after Cory was killed, the Chief of the precinct is looking at Joe and says "The same son of a b**ch saved the president's life." When the shot cuts to the other guy, then back to Joe and Jimmy outside the office, in the background the chief is now sitting back at his desk - some pretty quick moving between shots.

xx:xx:xx

The-Immortal

Plot hole: When the police chief asks Joe 'where's the briefcase they were telling me about?' Joe tells him to look in the back seat of the white BMW. There are a couple of problems with this. First, the police chief is looking for a case with a bomb in it, because he received a phone call from the guy who had his BMW stolen. Even if he knew about the money, which is unlikely, the police chief has no way of knowing that the case he is about to open is not a bomb, since no-one saw Marcone steal the case with the bomb in it. Yet he opens it without calling the bomb squad. Second, Joe saw Jimmy put the case with the bomb in the back seat, so why doesn't he warn the police chief about it?

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: C4 needs a detonator or blasting cap to explode, and so wouldn't go off from being shot in the trunk of Joe's car. You can even set it on fire and it will just burn slowly.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: After Joe kills Chet by punching his nose up into his brain there is an instant cut and as Chet is collapsing to his knees, he already impossibly has a stream of blood running out of his ears all the way down to under his shirt collar.

Plot hole: Marcone goes out into the parking lot, notices the white BMW, and then proceeds to shoot out the rear passenger window. Two problems with this scene, firstly, the front window is now perfectly intact when previously it was shot at during the limo chase, and secondly, Willis' character didn't even lock the car up, Marcones shooting of the window makes little sense with people around, which notably don't react to the shots at all.

Continuity mistake: The whole car lands in the swimming pool, with the back end stuck up in the air and the front end down because of the weight of the engine. A couple of shots later with Darian and the pool owner on the phone, the car is now sat up on its front end, which is now propped up on the side of the pool.

Continuity mistake: When Mike's white car gets blown up, it spins in the air and lands the opposite way around, but in a following shot the car has now moved back to facing the same way it did before it blew up.
