The Naked Gun

Continuity mistake: When Frank sits down on Nordberg's hospital bed and the bed breaks up you see three tubes on Nordberg's chest. When it cuts an extra tube appears on Nordberg's shoulders. (00:10:05)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Ed and Frank drive up to the Police Station, they are towing a luggage trailer that Frank backed into at the airport that didn't have any signage on it, but now sports a "DynAir" placard.

Continuity mistake: When Nordberg is at the I Luv You, the "u" in "You" is partially faded. When Nordberg's wife hands Frank the photo of the ship, the letter is fully visible.

Cubs Fan

Continuity mistake: The scene where Frank breaks into Ludwig's office. First he rummages through the desk, then he readjusts the chair. In the next shot, he suddenly is holding what seems to be a stuffed fox. (00:45:09)

Continuity mistake: When Frank is chasing the doctor who tries to kill Nordberg, the doctor crashes into the missile and you can see Frank's vehicle behind him as it should be. Right before the fireworks scene, Frank's vehicle disappears. It should still be following the doctor.

Continuity mistake: When Drebin first meets Ludwig, you see the shelf of vases. To the left of that is the fancy painting. However, when Drebin accidentally sets fire to the office, he rushes to the shelf to catch the vases as they fall. He then look to his right to see the flames getting close to the painting. He moves to his right (pulling down the shelf of vases in the process), takes the painting off the wall, and impales it on the plant. It should've been the other way around. Drebin should've looked and moved to his left instead of his right.

Continuity mistake: As Reggie Jackson starts walking toward the Queen at the end, the scoreboard behind him no longer shows three outs as it did moments before.

Continuity mistake: After deactivating the hypnosis, Ludwig has the remote in his left hand. A second later, it's in his right hand.

Continuity mistake: During the press conference, Frank has one empty pitcher in front of him, and is draining a second one. The third full one is positioned on the next tray. A moment later, the full one is suddenly in front of him.

Continuity mistake: Just before Frank accidentally nudges one of the fishermen into the river with his car, if you look in the background there is a police car. In the next shot of Frank getting out of his car on the pier, the police car is now noticeably much closer than in the previous shot.

Factual error: When Frank knocks out the Umpire and begins to change into his clothes, the umpire is wearing white underwear. All umpires wear black in case the seat of their pants rip so the game can continue.

Trivia: There is a trailer to this movie with an additional gag. After Ludwig has demonstrated his image of an ideal assassin to Papshmir, he sits down with the revolver used in the demonstration which had turned out to be empty. In the trailer shot (in a closeup of Montalban) the gun unexpectantly goes off.
