The Mask

Continuity mistake: When Dorian's boss shoots him in the stomach it switches from the boss to Dorian several times. Each time Dorian's buttons change colours from black buttons to white buttons to no buttons. (01:18:25)

Continuity mistake: When Tina goes to the jail and meet Stanley they almost kiss for the first time. She is wearing bright red lipstick. A few minutes later she is running down an alley outside of the prison from Dorian. She is wearing soft pink lipstick. (01:09:00)

Continuity mistake: While in Mrs. Peenmans' hall, just before she shoots him, his hands switch places on the mallet. In the first shot, his left hand is on the bottom, right hand is on the top. In the other two shots, it is vice-versa. (00:18:15)

Continuity mistake: When Stanley and Kalloway leave the police station, there are 2 men to the right shaking hands, then they walk off. The next shot is of Doyle saying "pig Latin", and the 2 men are doing exactly the same thing again. (01:15:50)

Continuity mistake: When The Mask escapes the club shootout, Dorian is left shooting at the air. He then gets tired and put his gun down. When the police arrive, he somehow has his gun raised again.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Neuman is talking about the mask, he turns it sideways and taps it with his fingers. In the following shot the mask is lying face-up.

Revealing mistake: When Kellaway shows up at Stanley's apartment to question him about his pajamas and Stanley scrambles to stuff all the stolen bank money into his closet, you can see that a few of the bills are blank on the back side, revealing that the money is a fake movie prop.

Trivia: When Stanley, as the Mask, is emptying his pockets for the goons, he pulls out a condom, and says "Sorry, wrong pocket" - this was improvised on the spot by Jim Carrey for the scene.

Question: In a scene towards the end of the movie, where Tina asks Dorian to give her one last kiss before the time bomb blows up the Coco Bongo, Eddy (one of Dorian's men) wants to turn off the bomb. Why would Eddy suddenly want to change his mind and turn the bomb off if he's taking part in blowing up the Coco Bongo in the first place?

Chosen answer: Because they're lingering longer than he's comfortable with. He's not having second thoughts, he just wants to stop the timer temporarily until they're finally finished.
