Revealing mistake: Bo and Luke Duke's car the "general Lee" usually has no glass in the side windows due the doors being welded shut as per NASCAR regulations which is why they climb through the windows to enter and leave the car, but when the general is doing one of its many jumps, in the long shots there is glass in the side windows.
Revealing mistake: In the driver closeup shots, look at the backgrounds. A lot of the time, it shows the vehicle making turns, and the driver doesn't match the motion. Also, there are a lot of closeups where you see blue screen instead of scenery, or they go from city to country in a moment.
Continuity mistake: The chase with Daisy in Rosco's squad car ends with a piano slamming into the car. When the truck hauling it comes to a stop, there's a reaction shot of Daisy at the wheel of the squad car. In the next shot, when the piano hits it, the car is empty. A second later, Rosco gets out of the truck and Daisy is back in the driver's seat. (00:30:00)
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, first the Sheriff's car, then the General land at a forty-five degree angle. You see the Sheriff's car looking like it has a definite bow downward in the middle. The General gets a compression dent over the front wheel well, but later it is smooth down the side.
Continuity mistake: When the Sheriff's car is being chased in the beginning, you can see that the driver is wearing a ball cap. At one point, you can see the hat the unknown driver wears turns to the hat worn by Rosco, as you can see the brim. Later, it's revealed that the unknown driver was Cooter.
Revealing mistake: As the Sheriff's cars are nearing the area where the Mobile Madam is, they're driving fast. As the RV and Bo are nearing the gate of the property they're on, you can see the two Sheriff's cars sitting just to the left of frame, then just beginning to move to make the pursuit look good.
