Continuity mistake: In the scene on the Strip where Gonzo is vomiting out of the car and yelling abuse at the couple in the adjacent car, he vomits on the other car's window. After this, no vomit is visible on the window in shots from inside the other car. When shot from outside, the vomit is still there.
Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning, when Duke stops the car and walks to the trunk, the boom mic operator is reflected in the side of the car.
Factual error: The movie is set in 1971, but during the start of the motorcycle race several of the bikes are obviously early 90's Honda CR's and Suzuki RM's. You can tell this from the disc brakes on the front wheels of the bikes and the 90's style plastic fenders and bike colors. Bikes in the 70's generally had metal fenders and definitely no front disc brakes.
Dr. Gonzo: You drive. You drive. I think there's something wrong with me.
Dr. Gonzo: As your attorney, I advise you to take a hit out of the little brown bottle in my shaving kit. You won't need much, just a tiny taste.
Dr. Gonzo: I hate to say this, but this place is getting to me. I think I'm getting the Fear.
