Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bud is getting lectured by his boss (at the MY-OH-MY CLUB) and he turns and marks out Bud's name on the working schedule, from one shot to the next shot the pen marks on the calendar change - sometimes neat lines (the ones we see him do), other shots they're messy scribbles. (00:20:00)

Continuity mistake: When the Bride shows up at Budd's trailer, her leather jacket is zipped up all the way. When Budd shoots her and she falls back, her jacket is opened. (00:24:50)

Continuity mistake: Right after Budd shoots Beatrix, he kicks her sword away from her, but the sword keeps changing position in subsequent shots. Sometimes it's on the ground and sometimes it's stuck in the side of a trash can. (00:25:30)

Continuity mistake: After Budd shoots the bride with rock salt he turns her over to inject with a drug. When he aims the needle to inject her it is from her left side and aimed at her left buttock. When they show a closeup of the injection Budd's arm is coming from the direction of her feet and injecting her in the right buttock. (00:28:00)


Revealing mistake: In the scene where Pai Mei shows Beatrix the short punch through the timber, the hole he punched through it is not solid wood but a fake veneer, MUCH thinner than the timber that is shown. (00:53:40)

Continuity mistake: After Pai Mei dumps the Bride's bowl onto the ground he shoves his bowl towards her. The bowl switches from the edge of the table to the middle between shots. (00:56:25)

Kill Bill: Volume 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the diner owner sees Beatrix walking towards the diner after getting out of the graveyard, you can see a CLOSED sign in the window and is pushed to the left corner of the window frame. When Beatrix is walking in you can see the same sign in the left window but is right up against the right of the window frame. You can actually see by the green pipe outside the diner that they have changed the sign's location. In the first shot the green pipe is outside the window. In the following shot where you can see the sign in the left window, the green pipe is outside the right window. (01:00:10)

Continuity mistake: When Bud dies from the snake bite, his body is lying at an angle to the counter and his right leg is bent. Later, when Elle catapults over the counter and lands on Bud's body, it's parallel to the counter and his right leg is straight. (01:02:30 - 02:15:05)

Tax Dude

Continuity mistake: When Budd is done making margaritas, the margarita mix bottle has the full label facing Elle. After he walks around the counter to give her a margarita, the bottle has spun halfway around and now the full label is facing where Budd was and the half label on the back is facing Elle. (01:06:35)

Continuity mistake: When Budd looks at the case of money, the left column of money lies vertical. In the following shot it is now horizontal. (01:06:40)

Continuity mistake: When Elle is talking to Bill after killing Budd, she is packing the money away in the suitcase. When she tells Bill "She put a black mamba in his camper", all the money on the floor to her right is gone and the only money left to pack is on the small table to her right. The next shot she is taking money from the floor to the left (her right) of the suitcase, and there is a considerable amount of money still on the floor. (01:10:35)

Continuity mistake: When Elle and Beatrix are fighting in Budd's trailer, Bea throws the contents of Bud's jar spitoon on Elle's face and she says, "Gross." It's all over her face yet later in the fight, just BEFORE her head goes in the toilet, Elle's face is all clean and she has fresh lipstick. (01:13:05)


Continuity mistake: When Beatrix is putting Elle's head into the toilet bowl in the fight you can see Elle is holding the toilet basin near the left edge with her left hand very tightly (you can tell its hers by the black sleeve). In the next shot she is bringing her hand up from below the basin around the middle of the left side and grabbing Beatrix's arm. Even if she dropped her hand there was not enough time during the shots for her to drop her hand from the basin and bring it back up. (01:13:20)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Beatrix is fighting Elle in Budd's trailer, she removes an aerial from the TV and slashes Elle's face, leaving four large gashes. In the next shot, two of the wounds are gone. (01:14:15)

Kill Bill: Volume 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning of the scene where The Bride is fighting Elle in Budd's trailer, Elle swats her back towards the back of the room with the sword. The Bride then takes one of the TV antennas as a weapon; notice the green bottle of beer on the TV. As she yanks out the antenna, she hits the beer bottle which falls. In mid-fall, however, the shot changes and the bottle is back on the top of the TV again. (01:14:20)

Continuity mistake: During the fight in Budd's trailer, the Bride tries to drown Elle in the toilet. As she's falling to the right, you can see that the magazines (that were previously on top of the tank) have somehow moved to the seat. An instant later, they're gone. (01:16:10 - 01:20:00)

Visible crew/equipment: When they show Elle's face from inside the toilet you can see Plexiglas between her face and the camera. You can also see a round outline in the Plexiglas that I presume is the reflection of a camera lens. (01:16:20)


Continuity mistake: When Elle and Beatrix have their big showdown in Budd's trailer, Elle kicks Beatrix into some sort of room and turns around to get Beatrix's sword. She picks it up and throws the case of the sword behind her and it hits the hanging light, putting the light out. However, when you see a frontal of Elle holding the sword, the light's back on and it's motionless. (01:16:50 - 01:17:20)

Continuity mistake: After Beatrix plucks out Elle's other eye, Elle begins to kick and flail in the bathroom. A shot of the toilet has magazines and bottles neatly on top of it. The next shot the bottles are tipped over and the magazines are on the toilet seat. Elle never got close enough to the toilet to knock these items over. A few shots later and the magazines that were on the toilet seat are no longer there. (01:19:55)


Elle Driver: What's that?
Beatrix Kiddo: Budd's Hanzo sword.
Elle Driver: He said he pawned it.
Beatrix Kiddo: Well, then, I guess that makes him a liar, now don't it?

Question: During Beatrix's fight scene with Pai Mei, she reaches for his throat. He shows something silver from his mouth. What is in his mouth and what is it an homage to?

Chris Buentello

Answer: It's a piece of white lotus blossom. The wuxia film "Fist of the White Lotus" is the one where Pai Mei acquires his skills and power.


Answer: Anyone? The last 4 times I've seen this movie it's bugged the hell out of me. I can't find a good answer anywhere online.
