In the next shot shown from above the house the car has disappeared and they both fly into the air.


Continuity mistake: When Hancock puts the woman on the hospital bed near the end of the movie when he walks out he walks into the metal bar holding the window in place and as a result it bends. In the next shot where you see the frame it doesn't even have a scratch let alone being bent.

Continuity mistake: (Spoiler Alert) the day after Hancock finds out that Mary also has powers, he stabs her with a large fork with two pointy ends. As expected, they do not puncture her skin. The pointy ends bend toward each other, making a triangle shape. But in the next shot, when Mary snatches it from his hand, the tips are no longer in a triangle shape, just bent the wrong way a little. Mary snatches it away by the handle, so we know that she could not have taken it by the points and bent it.

Continuity mistake: When Hancock finds out on the TV that he is going to jail, one second he is not eating a banana but the next he is.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the movie, when Hancock rips the roof off the car and points to the baddie on his right, watch his right hand finger. First, he points to the man on his right and then to his left. In the next shot he is still pointing to the man on the right and then to his left.


Continuity mistake: During the battle between John and Mary, a huge storm brews up above and around them. Shots of Ray having a meeting show this storm outside the window. But just before the office is torn open, a momentary close-up of Ray in the office shows a normal, late-day sunny sky, then the wall is ripped open and the gray/blue storm is there again.


Continuity mistake: After Mary reveals herself to Hancock, the next time she and Ray are at the kitchen table, the towel Ray picks up off the table immediately changes completely from the one that Mary uses to try and open the jar. There is no other towel anywhere near them, and it's a split second, so it's definitely supposed to be the same one.

Hancock: Call me an asshole, one more time.



Basic physics - Hancock throws Michel from a dead stop to above cloud level in about eleven seconds. The clouds are bog standard cumulus which form at around 7,000 metres in temperate zones. This means that Michel accelerates to about 700 metres per second instantly, from a dead stop. Obviously he cannot accelerate during his ascent, so his starting speed has to be at least that. (In fact he would have to start his ascent much, much faster than 700 metres per second as he would be constantly decelerating due to gravity and air resistance, but it will do as a start point.) Michel accelerates from 0 to 2,520 kilometres per hour - twice the speed of sound - in zero seconds. He would be accelerating at around 5000 Gs, turning him into a very long streak of fine, pink mist.



Will Smith has his own signature line, which is called 'Oh Hell no.' He says it at least once in almost all his movies, including this one.
