Revealing mistake: When the window slams on Nordberg's hand it is that the window stops right above his hand. When he pulls his hand out the window doesn't go all the way down and a wooden cube is visible on the edge of the window stopping it from closing. (00:06:50)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, during the big fight, Frank grabs Mikhail Gorbachev and smashes his head through the wall. The guy stays there but at the end of the fight, when Frank is about to jump out of the window, it shows him again. The hole now is bigger and not only consumes his head but all the way to his waist. (00:02:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When Drebin chases the doctor out of the hospital, the doctor gets a car, while in the background, Drebin falls from the ladder. Dreblin then emerges from under the car. The doctor drives off, and Drebin enters the foreground. Look in the windscreen of the car Drebin emerged from. The top of a man's head with grey hair appears at the end of the shot, thinking it's over. It is spotted most easily when viewed in slow motion. This is the stunt double that dropped from the ladder. (00:32:25)

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.

More trivia for The Naked Gun

Question: I am watching "The Naked Gun" on the IFC Network, and during one of the commercials they asked a trivia question about the movie that I never saw answered. The question was, "Which famous comedian contributed a scene or gag for the movie", and the choices were Mel Brooks, Steve Martin, and one other name that I do not remember. Does anyone know the answer to this question? I can not find any information about it anywhere. Thank you.

Chosen answer: Mel Brooks. When Frank is undercover as the ump, one of the batters hits Frank in the face with the bat. This was a suggestion Brooks had made.
