Traffic

Plot hole: Towards the end of the movie when Michael Douglas makes his speech at the White House, he is able to quietly walk out of the gates with no reporters anywhere trying to chase him down. Totally unrealistic (especially considering what had just happened).

Continuity mistake: The general shows the policeman photos of an assassin they want. They show pictures of him with facial scars that he actually receives after he has been captured and tortured.

Continuity mistake: It can be seen twice during the in-car arguement scene between the Wakefield parents that the passenger side fog light is out on their vehicle. After the bugged driveway scene where the car rotates 45 degrees while the wife is backing out (with fog lights off), you can catch a glimpse of the previously inoperative fog light being on and working perfectly as she drives down the street.

Question: Catherine Zeta Jones' character is the daughter of a Mexican drug lord, but she tells her upper-class friends that she's European. I'm assuming she's trying to pass herself off as Spanish or maybe Portuguese because it seems more exotic and socially acceptable among the upper class than being Mexican. Is this correct?

Krista

Chosen answer: The upper classes in Spanish-speaking countries tend to be more of Spanish ancestry, decendants of the original conquistadores. As such, some consider themselves Spanish, distinct from the lower-class Mestizos.
