Continuity mistake: While Shannon and Sarah are speaking to Robin, two people (a blond white guy and a black guy with a blue satchel) pass by the trio twice.


Continuity mistake: Shannon lobs a watermelon at the dealer's back and knocks him down. The watermelon lands and just splits open. Shot changes as he asks Shannon what she hit him with and sees a large chunk, about half, of the watermelon next to his head. Just moments before, the melon was not that broken. Shot changes again and that large chunk is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Shannon and Sarah are at the bar, during this whole scene the extras appear, disappear, and change positions between shots.

Continuity mistake: Sarah tries to help a choking restaurant customer by cutting into his throat and inserting a straw. Blood starts squirting out onto her shirt, and her hands are completely covered in blood. But then when Shannon and Sarah are in the parking lot, there's no blood to be seen. She may have thoroughly washed her hands, but her shirt should have had blood still on it.

Continuity mistake: Shannon gets Sarah to drink at a bar. Shannon starts helping tip the glass to make Sarah drink faster. One shot shows enough drink in the glass still to be touching the bottom even when turned down. Shot cuts to different perspective and there's suddenly much less drink in the glass.

Continuity mistake: In the club scene, when Sandra Bullock's green top is torn up by Melissa from the mirror, you see the shirt go from tucked into the pants to untucked, then back to tucked. (00:44:40)

Other mistake: In the hospital, Mullins says she took the bullets out when she threatened to shoot Julian in the groin. However, we saw her leave one bullet in.


Continuity mistake: When Mullins goes over the top of the fence with the drug dealer, her car in the background is visible with the driver's door shut. In the shots before and after it is open.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Shannon and Sarah are waking up in the bar, Sarah awakes leaning on her jacket. When she gets up to find Shannon, Shannon is found in the back room, putting that same jacket into the poker pot.


Mullins: That cat took one look at your shitty shitty life, and said nooooo fucking thanks.
