The Long Kiss Goodnight

Continuity mistake: In the final battle scene between Geena Davis and Craig Beirko, Beirko's character slashes Davis' character across the stomach (upper right hand side). In the next shot, the wound is located on the lower left side and in a subsequent shot, the wound has multiplied to become two wounds: one in the upper right hand side and a second in the lower left hand side.

Visible crew/equipment: When Geena Davis is being dunked in water, you can see an air hose she is breathing out of in one shot. It is when the bad guy is talking, and you see her submerged.

Factual error: When Samantha Caine and Mitch Henessey are driving towards Buffalo, she receives a cell phone call from the villains informing her that they have kidnapped her daughter. They ask for her location, to which she replies "on State Route 5, 15 minutes east of Union Springs, New York." New York State Route 5 does not go through Union Springs; New York State Route 90 does.

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis is meeting the old man at the bar in the train station, when the young guy talks to her, she looks over at him, and you can clearly see a boom mike in the shot which stays there until the scene changes.

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis is ice-skating with her daughter, she takes off her right glove to hold the girl's hand and help her up. The glove is still off when she says "3 2 1, Go." but when the camera changes point-of-view in the next shot, the glove is somehow back on her hand again.

Audio problem: When Charlie is driving the truck, you see her press the brake, but you hear the engine rev.

Add time

Factual error: There is a major error in the scene where Geena Davis steals the tractor trailer. They show a closeup of the brake line between the truck and the trailer being cut. The problem arises when fluid starts pumping out of the line and Geena screams because she's lost the brakes. First, every tractor trailer is equipped with air brakes, so there is no fluid in the lines to leak. Second, if these air lines are severed it causes the brakes on the trailer to lock up and drag the truck to a stop.

Continuity mistake: Geena Davis has her hands and feet tied to the water wheel when she's being tortured for information. Under water she manages to free one of her hands but not her feet, when she comes up for air and shoots her captor, she drops the gun and unties her other hand, but her feet are still tied, so she would have fallen face first into the water.

Revealing mistake: When the guy that was shot in the chopper is falling, you can see the protective, yet flaming mask on his face.

Revealing mistake: Charlie is underwater and flashing back to when she was in the trunk of the car, the camera cuts to her face and the air bubble is going into her mouth, not coming out.

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis is underwater by the water wheel, she notices that the dead body down there has a gun and she starts to reach for it. Then in the next shot, we see her reaching hand holding on to the water wheel but she still looks like she's reaching for the gun even though she's holding on to the wheel.

Continuity mistake: At the end when Geena Davis cuts the string of lights and flies up to kill Craig Beirko, she grabs a machine gun on the way up from someone who's burning. Now she's one tough cookie but I doubt that she wouldn't even flinch when grabbing a hot gun.

Revealing mistake: Near the end, Timothy came out of the hotel, after the explosion, without a scratch.

Factual error: The police in the scene where Charlie is asking for help are very close to her. They also know that the truck is a bomb. They would not really be that close with the knowledge they had.

Continuity mistake: When the man who was holding the carollers hostage comes to Davis', she dives behind the fridge door, the man shoots the door and Davis flies backwards. After he kicks the door shut, there's not a scratch on it.

Revealing mistake: In the time it takes to run to the pond, and at the speed the people are driving. Charlie couldn't have run, put on, and laced up her skates.

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis is skating across the ice and shooting at a car, one of the car's hubcaps flies off only to come back a few shots later.

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Charlie is tied to the water wheel, she struggles to free her right hand and blood permeates the water. As she reaches to retrieve the gun she inadvertently drops the fake blood packet and it drifts down slowly in the water.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis stabs a man in the eye with a syringe, in one shot there's no blood on his eye, but in the very next shot there is.

Revealing mistake: When the guys jump Charlie and Mitch in the alleyway, a gunfight ensues. However, after the last bad guy is dispatched and a total of a dozen gun shots have been heard, if you look at the street behind them the people are still walking calmly as if nothing happened.

Continuity mistake: After Timothy has kidnapped Caitlin from the church, it cuts to an exterior wideshot of the car heading to Niagara Falls and we can see the rear-view mirror on the windshield, but in the closeup of Charly and Mitch the mirror has vanished.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Charlie forces the truck driver out of the semi, just as he hits the ground you can see the door of the truck closing. Then when the shot cuts back to Charlie the door is seen closing again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Charlie forces the truck driver out of the semi, right after she points her gun at him, the shot cuts to outside the truck and it looks like the driver fell out the driver's side door. This does not make sense as Charlie was blocking that door.

Trivia

Scriptwriter Shane Black is a huge believer in recycling. Check out how much the moment when Jackson is captured by Bierko resembles Rigg's capture by McAllister in "Lethal Weapon". Black's 3 biggest movies - "Lethal Weapon", "The Last Boy Scout" and "The Long Kiss Goodnight" all involve a major character's daughter being kidnapped (to say nothing of all beginning with an "L").
