Factual error: In one of the intertitles in the final scene when Mendez is lying in his son's bed, it is stated, "The involvement of the C.I.A. complemented efforts of the Canadian embassy in freeing the six held in Tehran." The six freed from Iran by Mendez were not being held; they were in hiding. The hostages that were held were freed by Iran much later. (01:50:39)

Continuity mistake: When Gallagher (Paul Newman) stops at the traffic light and gets out and runs back to cops that are tailing him, he passes a Triumph TR7 convertible that has stopped behind his car. A large man is driving that Triumph. When the camera angle changes as Gallagher runs back to his car, the Triumph is empty - you can see its full, unobstructed windshield. (00:47:00)

Factual error: After the car explosion in front of the Vogue theater on Hollywood Blvd, Murtaugh tells Riggs that "he's headed for the freeway" and "you can cut him off at the 3rd St bridge" (approximate wordage), and Riggs takes off running. 3rd St is nowhere near Hollywood Blvd (17 blocks away) and there is no 3rd St bridge within miles.
