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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

Factual error: Visible lasers are never used as a security feature.

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.

Other mistake: When T. jumps through the rear window of Nick's van he falls on the street but rolls the wrong way, against any laws of physics.

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.

Add time

Factual error: In the scene where Martin Lawrence robs the gas station, the attendant runs out and shoots off the side-view mirror with a shotgun. Notice that the gun blast does no other damage. Not possible with that type of weapon as evidenced by the huge hole blasted in the back window of Nick's SUV only minutes later in the chase.

Add time

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.

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: When the security guard gets out of the elevator he does some fancy tricks with his torch. When you look in slow motion you see the pivot that keeps the torch in place.

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.

Other mistake: The tape of Nick and Terrance's robbery is being reviewed, and somehow no one recognizes Nick's voice, his build, or the suit he has on.

Add time

Factual error: On their way through the desert Nick and T. cross the Arizonian border. Shortly after that you see Joshua trees left and right. Joshua trees, at least in such abundance, are only found in Joshua Tree National Park, which lies in California.

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.

Revealing mistake: When Nick tells T. that he wants to give the money back they start fighting. Nick's sleeve gets almost ripped off, but before this happens you can see that the sleeve is stitched on rather loosely.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

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.

Other mistake: In the scene where T. is balanced on the railing and you see Nick's reflection in the window his mouth is moving while only T. is talking.

Visible crew/equipment: Before Nick and T. rob the convenience store for two flashlights, you see a crowd of crew members reflected in left side of the window right after Nick runs into the toy racks outside the store.

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

NancyFelix

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.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Nick is carjacked at the start, he drives through a red light. This turns to green before he reaches halfway across the junction. But cars still come from left and right.

Other mistake: When Nick comes back to the hotel room after his encounter with Danielle and the elevator stops, he sees the two robbers walking by (not even looking at the open elevator) and enter another elevator which has stopped a moment later. Since this is the top floor of the hotel (as can be seen later) the logic elevator control wouldn't have sent another cabin to this level as Nick's was already on the way up.

NancyFelix

Other mistake: Shortly after Nick takes off with T. he is heading for a truck from which a pallet with paper is being unloaded. The pallet blocks the whole space between the truck and the building, but when the camera angle changes to the other side, truck and pallet are shifted away from the building that there is enough room for Nick's van to zip through.

Other mistake: In the scene where the two criminals try to rob Tim Robbins and Martin Lawrence, Tim is outside the car and a split second later he is sitting in the passenger seat.

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where T. is balanced on the railing and Nick says 'I think I can open the door' there is a reflection of a crew member in the window next to Nick's head.

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.

Other mistake: In the scene where Tim Robbins confronts the two criminals to regain the money, he manages to shoot the gun out of the criminal's hand with a shotgun and inflict no other damage.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Nick and Terrance are fighting to get the extra credit card outside the restaurant, you can see a dog looking at something off screen. The next shot, it's head is in a completely different direction

Add time

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.

Continuity mistake: When Nick pulls into the diner the back of his truck is clean. When he parks it is covered in dust.

Other mistake: When Nick rams the bad guys car, the other driver reacts as being hit prior to impact.

Continuity mistake: When the 4x4 is being rammed, there is a shot of a car traveling in the opposite direction. In the very next shot, it is gone.

Factual error: The lasers shown protecting the office hit objects, like the desk. This should set the alarm off as it crossed and interrupted the laser beam.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: Just after they rob the gas station they do a turn in the road to avoid the cops. If you look you can see skid marks doing the exact same turn in the same place, revealing they are from previous takes.

Continuity mistake: When T is saying to Nick what he would have done in Nick's situation, he has grass in his hair that is constantly moving.

Revealing mistake: Nick sprays T.'s eyes with mace, but a few seconds later, when they approach a red light at full speed, T. opens his eyes wide and they are not even red.

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.

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.
