Point Break

Visible crew/equipment: When Johnny Utah jumps out of the plane in the last free fall scene, he jumped out without a parachute. If you look closely, you can see that the stuntman who did the jump has a huge parachute on underneath his shirt.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Utah is chasing the ex-president, we see Ronald Reagan run out of a house and scale a fence into a neighbours garden, instead of running down the driveway. The next shot then shows Utah running out of the house with the fence coming into view, but without seeing the ex-president, and then give chase over the fence. He wouldn't have known to jump over the fence, because he wouldn't have seen him go over it.

Johnny Utah: Wars of religion always make me laugh, because basically you're fighting over who has the best imaginary friend.

More quotes from Point Break

Trivia: Johnny is reporting to Angelo on Bhodi's movements that day. He comments on how he goes and eats lunch at "Patrick's Roadhouse." There is an actual bar and grill on the Pacific Coast Highway right out of Los Angeles called 'Patrick's Roadhouse', but Patrick Swayze also starred in "Roadhouse" a few years earlier, so this seems like a deliberate nod.
