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. (01:18:55 - 01:19:45)

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)
