Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film when they pick up the hitchhiker, after they drive off, the car is still in park. (00:04:07)

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.

Trivia: When Johnny Depp passes an old guy sitting, who looks like him (bald with hippy glasses), surrounded by females, it is none other than Hunter S. Thompson himself, in a cameo.

Trivia: In the flashback scene where Johnny Depp is taking LSD in the bathroom of a 60's bar, a guy who is dressed like a hippy, walks in, asks what he's doing and starts to lick the LSD he had dropped in his red flannel shirt. That guy is none other than Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea.

Trivia: If you have seen a photo of Hunter Thompson in the seventies you will notice just how accurate Johnny Depp's costume is. This is because Hunter Thompson actually lent him some of his old clothes in order to play the part.
