Correction: Ford never made a Charger. You mean Dodge Charger. However, the duck was also used on Stuntman Mike's Nova. In this movie, the hood ornament is a trademark, if you will, of Stuntman Mike. The duck resembling the ornament of a truck in another movie does not categorically mean it is a reference to the previous movie, and could just be coincidence, unless there is a cite to prove this.


Corrected entry: We can see that Kim shot Mike to the forearm, just below the elbow. But when Mike later looks at his wounded arm, the blood spot and the wound is higher, much more above his elbow. And even before, when he is pouring alcohol on the wound, he pours it on the sleeve. As he is wearing a short-sleeve T-shirt, there's no way that the sleeve would cover the wound below the elbow. (01:38:10 - 01:44:25)

Correction: No, he's shot in the upper arm near the shoulder, not the elbow. Kim also emptied her gun at him, and it's possible he was hit more than once.

Corrected entry: We can see that Stuntman Mike car's smokescreen is smashed out during the final chase. But in the end of this chase, we can see it in front of his face again (for example when the girls crash him for the last time and the car starts rotating).

Correction: I had thought the windscreen disappeared as well, but after watching it a few times, it is there for all the shots. The glare from the sun reflecting of the other parts of it makes it look like it is gone. Look for the blood spatters to see it's still there.

Deliberate mistake: At the end of the movie, where the girls chase stuntman Mike, they drive the upper dusty road. When their car is shown front outside angle, there's a lot of dust rising from the camera crew's car. But when the camera angle gets into their car and shoots strait ahead - the dust is all gone, the air is perfectly clear.

Question: What happened to Lee? It never says what she was doing while the others were "out for a test drive" or if they went back for her. I heard somewhere that the guy raped her. Is this true?

Answer: Since the actor is the same actor who played the raping guy in Kill Bill, it's seen as a hint that she is, in fact, raped.
