Corrected entry: In the first scene where Ray and Claude are being buried, the speaker says "we lay to rest Claude Gibson and C. Banks" instead of Ray Gibson. They never said Ray's name.

Correction: They're actually saying "R" Gibson - I thought the same thing until I listened again.

Corrected entry: When Claude and Ray supposedly commit murder and are sentenced to life in the pen, it's 1932. When the movie goes to 1972 the caption shows they have only been in prison for 28 years. After being in prison for 28 years the year should be 1960 and not 1972.

Correction: They were sentenced in 1932, but the 28 years later is from the point that they fight last. A good amount of years passed before that happened. I believe it was at least 12 years.

Continuity mistake: When Ray and Claude are going to bed in the retirement home, Ray tells Claude that he's going to put his wet sheets on him when he's sleeping. If you look closely Claude starts laughing really hard, but he's not supposed to.

Trivia: Fun to spot - In the scene where Eddie Murphy is fighting the big guy, after a while he says, "I know a bitch named Della who hit harder than you." Here, he is referring to Della Reese, whom he fought with in Harlem Nights.

Question: Why does Buscuit try to run right before he's let out? Why does he say he can't go home to his mama?

Answer: Because he is gay. In the time this movie is set, being homosexual was not only an extreme moral and religious taboo, but it was illegal in most parts of the US. Buscuit is too ashamed of letting his mother find out about his relationship with Jangleleg, so he runs, knowing the guards will shoot him dead.
