Lethal Weapon 3

Other mistake: When Cole is looking at the LAPD records, Billy Phelps has a birth-date of 9/16/63 and is listed as 28 years old, meaning the current date is at least 9/16/91. However, the first record, Rick Sabman, has a birth-date of 9/1/60 and is only listed as 30 years old, when he should be 31.

Other mistake: in the scene where 'Sergeant' Jack Travis is asking to see billy Phelps, he is addressed as a Sergeant, later when Lorna is showing the CCTV footage from the interrogation room, she calls him Lieutenant Jack Travis. Is he a sergeant or a lieutenant? Furthermore, given he is a former police officer, he wouldn't be allowed near the station, let alone be allowed to interrogate a suspect in police custody.

Other mistake: At the construction site, when the car rolls in empty. Not only is the windshield suddenly tinted, the car is also riddled with about 100 bullet-holes when only 1 or 2 guys fired a few bursts.

Other mistake: The end credits mis-spell St. Petersburg as "St. Petersberg".

Continuity mistake: In the hockey game, the teams playing are the Los Angeles Kings and the Toronto Maple Leafs. You can notice the real logos when the camera is away from the action. When it gets closer, though (probably because of copyrights), the maple leaf is turned into a spades (from cards) with only "Toronto" written and the Kings' word and crown in the logo become just an "LA" with a slightly different shape.

Trivia: The building that explodes in the beginning of the film (due to Mel Gibson messing with the bomb) was the old city hall in downtown Orlando, Florida, where the scene was shot. In reality, only half the building collapsed from the explosion.
