Get Shorty

Continuity mistake: Chili Palmer goes to DeVito's house and parks his mini van next to the curb facing one direction. When Chili gives DeVito the keys for a test ride, the mini van is now parked facing the other direction on the street.

Continuity mistake: Watch the scene where Chili and Harry are driving past the Napoleon billboard. We then see a shot of Harry with the billboard quite far behind him, but when we cut back to Chili, the billboard is quite close again.

Other mistake: When the guy is on the balcony, and gets shot over the rail, you can clearly see the top rail bend to let him flip over and fall. Then when he lands you can see what looks like the corner of a mat lift up and kick dirt up. The next shot shows the bad guys leaning on the very rail that just bent.

Chili Palmer: That was "Rio Bravo." Robert Mitchum played the drunk in "El Dorado." Dean Martin played the drunk in "Rio Bravo." Basically, it was the same part. Now John Wayne, he did the same in both. He played John Wayne.
