Corrected entry: At the beginning when the slinky is going down the large flight of stairs, you can clearly see that the stairs level off at certain points, making it impossible for the slinky to continue moving all the way down.

Correction: Not necessarily a mistake. Ace could have continued it once it stopped and start the count again from where he stopped.

Corrected entry: On the plane trip to the consulate, the stewardess offers peanuts. After that, you see he is eating sunflower seeds.

Correction: Ace brings his own sunflower seeds on the plane.

Corrected entry: On the plane to Africa, the stewardess asks Ace if he wants peanuts but he winds up eating sunflower seeds or something of that nature because he spits the shells out on the man's arm.

Correction: As seen in the first film, he carries them around with him all the time - probably why he refused the peanuts.

Correction: One may ask why, but that's a question, not a mistake.

Corrected entry: While Ace is inside the rhino, he completely strips himself, except for his watch. This watch magically vanishes when he crawls out. He could've taken it off during the cut, but there is no point in doing that. Also the ray of light shines horizontally through the opening, which is near impossible during daytime. (00:42:20)

Correction: The watch easily could have come off while he was "struggling" to get out of the rhino. It was a tight squeeze.

Corrected entry: When Ace is escaping from the robotic rhino, he has just managed to get his arms out, but in the next shot his arms are back inside the rhino again and only his face is sticking out.

Correction: The shot changes from Ace inside the rhino to the family on the safari truck. Ace was trying to get out, and would have had plenty of time in those few short seconds to pull his arms back in and try and push his face through.


Corrected entry: There's a scene where Ace is poking himself in the eye to make the other guy squeamish. If you look careful in the next shot where Ace shouts "spill it." you can just about see that his eye is all red and bloodshot - he must have poked his eye a bit more than he meant to.

Correction: That isn't really trivia. It is plain to see.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Ace confronts the Chancellor about the stolen bat at the end of the movie, the Chancellor is playing chess with himself. When the camera angles switch, the chess pieces disappear. You can hear the chess pieces clattering to the floor after Ace makes a broad sweep of the arm in the shot before, but they then reappear in their starting positions.

Correction: The pieces only disappear once and never reappear. You cannot hear them hit the floor even though Ace does make a sweeping motion. They never appear on the floor, either.

Corrected entry: Why use an Asian elephant in a movie based entirely in Africa?

Correction: The gentleman from the consulate is a collector of rare animals. There is no reason he could not have one there, and it is the only elephant we see.


Corrected entry: When Ace removes the apple core from a tribe member, it is quite clear that the head is a rubber head.

Correction: You can see the tribe member blinks when he hits his elbow. This is real.

Visible crew/equipment: In one scene Ace is drumming large mushrooms supposedly growing on the side of a tree. When Ace knocks only one off (the very last mushroom, he hits it off the tree completely and you see) a metal spike that held all the mushroom props in place visible on the tree.
