Shanghai Noon

Factual error: The evil man request 100,000 pieces of gold for ransom. Each gold piece looks to be about 10 ounces, and 100,000 of those would make the entire thing of gold weigh about or over 3 tons and 2 guys are carrying it around in a little chest throughout the movie.

Continuity mistake: Jackie Chan fights the Indians in the stream. His clothes are soaked. But as soon as he is on the land to fight the others, his clothes are dry.

Continuity mistake: In the desert, when Roy is buried alive, Jackie walks up and casts a shadow over his face. In the next shot, the shadow is facing a different direction. It continually changes throughout this scene.
