Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, when the van is approaching the road block, you can see the 4 sets of headlights. However, when we see the road block from behind, we see one cop car parked at an angle, in front of another cop car's headlight, which would obstruct the view of the light which we saw before.Bishop73
Other mistake: Soon after Jay pushes the little red button on the Ford POS, Kay inserts an eight track cassette. If you look at the eight track player, you can read "Select". The car is upside down at this point, but the word "Select" on the player, as well as the title of the cassette, "Elvis 'Promised Land'" are both right-side up. This means that, if the car were right-side up, the text would be upside down, and, in turn, the entire cassette player would be upside down. It is clear that this mistake was made by not paying attention to the orientation of the car as the scene was shot. It is also clear that the shot is done with the camera right-side up since Kay is in the driver's seat, which, right-side up, would be on the left, but since the car is upside down, he's on the right, which is seen when he inserts the tape.

Large cop: If you were half the man I am... [Jay looks pointedly at policeman's stomach] I am half the man you are!
