The Mask

Continuity mistake: When Dorian, as The Mask, breaks down the doors of the Coco Bongo, you see the door topple onto the doorman on the left. When the camera cuts back, he is on top of the door. (01:17:25)

Continuity mistake: While in Mrs. Peenmans' hall, just before she shoots him, his hands switch places on the mallet. In the first shot, his left hand is on the bottom, right hand is on the top. In the other two shots, it is vice-versa. (00:18:15)

Continuity mistake: When The Mask escapes the club shootout, Dorian is left shooting at the air. He then gets tired and put his gun down. When the police arrive, he somehow has his gun raised again.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Neuman is talking about the mask, he turns it sideways and taps it with his fingers. In the following shot the mask is lying face-up.

Revealing mistake: When Kellaway shows up at Stanley's apartment to question him about his pajamas and Stanley scrambles to stuff all the stolen bank money into his closet, you can see that a few of the bills are blank on the back side, revealing that the money is a fake movie prop.

Charlie Schumacher: A girl like that is always looking for the BBD. Bigger Better Deal.
Stanley Ipkiss: You don't know that, Charlie. She's an artist. She's... She's sensitive.
Charlie Schumacher: Stanley, listen to me. That girl will tear your heart out, put it in a blender and hit "frappe."

Question: The question of the car braking is to why is the car actually braking. I understand why it makes a screeching noise as the car brakes, but what I don't understand is why a car would brake automatically. I mean, you have to push the brake pedal to operate the brakes, cars don't brake automatically. When Stanly is driving the car, there wouldn't be a need for him to accelerate and brake like that, so why does the car keep braking?

Chosen answer: It's an old car, so obviously a numbr of things could be wrong with it, like the clutch or the engine. Faults with either of these things would cause a car to brake in this way.
