Nothing to Lose

Continuity mistake: When Nick and T. talk after their fight outside the desert diner, the dirt on T.'s hair keeps changing. (00:20:00)


Continuity mistake: At the gas station with the hillbilly, the gas nozzle that Nick puts in his car when he is thinking of his wife is first red, then black, and then just silver. (00:22:20)

Continuity mistake: When T. has robbed a gas station, the hillbilly that owns the gas station breaks one of the mirrors of the car with a shotgun blast, and he even smashes the back window of the car. But when they are driving off there is one shot where the mirror is miraculously back in a perfect condition while the back window is still broken. In all later scenes the mirror is dangling down. (00:24:10)

Continuity mistake: When the hillbilly shoots by mistake at the police car the windshield suffers four or five neat bullet holes in a circle. When the guy looks through the windshield there is one big round hole. (00:24:55)


Continuity mistake: When the two criminals are chasing Tim Robbins and Martin Lawrence on the highway, they pull up beside them and the white criminal throws his cigarette at Tim Robbins, but in the next scene he has the cigarette back in his mouth. (00:39:50)

Continuity mistake: When Nick tries to open the door to his company he enters a four-digit code. When he tries again he presses only three keys. (00:59:45)


Continuity mistake: Before Nick and T. check in at the Royal hotel there is an outside shot where there are no railings on the balcony walls. However, in all later shots there are railings. (01:06:55 - 01:15:45)


Continuity mistake: In one outside shot T. is balanced on the rooftop railing, which means that they have a penthouse room. However, from the first shot of the hotel it is clear that the 'penthouse' floor is only a utility floor. (01:06:55 - 01:15:45)


Continuity mistake: After Nick and T. have checked in at the hotel Nick goes down to the bar to get drunk. On the counter in front of him there are five glasses in equal distance in a straight row, but when the camera angle changes the row is not straight any more and one glass is moved away from the others. (01:08:20)


Continuity mistake: When Danielle sits down next to Nick at the bar her curly hair is hanging loose over her temples. When they drink her hair is gelled back in a rather strange way. (01:09:45)


Continuity mistake: When Nick gets back to the hotel room the robbers have left T. sitting on a chair, precariously balanced on the railing of the balcony, held back only by a bedsheet whose other end is stuck between the balcony doors. Only a small tip of the bedsheet sticks out right next to the spherical doorknob, but a few shots later there is a close-up where a larger tip sticks out and the doorknob is flat. (01:15:20 - 01:16:25)


Continuity mistake: When Nick and T. chase the two robbers to get their money back there are two tidy wads of notes stuck under the right sun visor. At a wider camera angle the money isn't there, but when it cuts back there are even three wads, and the middle one is rather crumpled. (01:17:45)


Continuity mistake: During the last car chase with Rig and Charlie, the climate controls on Nick's Yukon change. When the front windshield is being shot at by Charlie, it's about 2/3s of the way up, signifying a warm blend of air. When Charlie crashes and Nick pulls up and parks, just before grabbing the gun, you see the dashboard once again but the climate control is now turned all the way to cold. Also, during that same chase scene, a little red light blinks on the dashboard which suggests that the vehicle wasn't even running to begin with as GM uses these as a "security" feature and they typically blink when the vehicle is off. (01:21:00)

Continuity mistake: After the run-in with Nick, T. Paul and the other two criminals, T. Paul ends up shooting the tire of the criminals' car, and they exit, leaving the criminals stranded. The criminals end up stealing an English guy's car, but when they catch up with Nick and T. Paul after they've robbed Nick's boss, they are driving their old, beat up, and supposedly punctured car.

Continuity mistake: At the very end, Nick puts the last of Mama's mustard on his hot dog, but when he takes a bite, there is no mustard on it.

Continuity mistake: Nick's shoes catch on fire about half way through the movie. At the end of the movie when Nick and Terrance face off against Charlie and the other guy (from Platoon), his shoes are fine.

Continuity mistake: Nick gets a bullet graze to his arm, yet there's no tear on the sleeve.

Continuity mistake: When Nick is with the woman from the bar, she rips his shirt open and buttons go flying. When he goes back home to his wife, his shirt is buttoned up.

Continuity mistake: When Nick is fighting with T at the diner, the dog in the background is constantly looking in opposite directions between shots.
