Point Break

Revealing mistake: During the night surfing scene notice that the sun is evident in the background (look closely it does not appear long). There are also shots where you can see clouds and faint blue sky. Moments later you see Keanu and Lori sitting in the water with completely different lighting which was actually taken at night and further distinguishes that the surfing shots were not actually done at night time. I heard the scene was shot during the day with a filter so it looked like it was shot at night.

Other mistake: In the fight scene where Bohdi helps special agent Utah you see that his surf board gets broken in two and then after the fight he is seen leaving without the board, but in the scene where he and Tyler are woken up early to go surf right before Tyler says "you look like you just saw a ghost" you see him carrying the same board.

Continuity mistake: During the night surfing scene, you see a shot of the surface of the water from below, the sun is obviously visible.

Trivia: Johnny is reporting to Angelo on Bhodi's movements that day. He comments on how he goes and eats lunch at "Patrick's Roadhouse." There is an actual bar and grill on the Pacific Coast Highway right out of Los Angeles called 'Patrick's Roadhouse', but Patrick Swayze also starred in "Roadhouse" a few years earlier, so this seems like a deliberate nod.

Pappas: Listen you snot-nose little shit, I was takin' shrapnel in Khe Sanh when you were crappin' in your hands and rubbin' it on your face.

Bodhi: If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

Bodhi: Life sure has a sick sense of humor, doesn't it?

More quotes from Point Break

Question: Is the actor playing Rosie at the very end when he releases Tyler a different actor than the rest of the film? When he goes up to hug Bohdi he looks very different from earlier.

Question: What exactly is Anthony Kiedis doing on his bed when Keanu Reeves looks in the apartment before the big shoot-out? Is he listening to music, shooting up heroin or (as my pals suggested) is he jacking off whilst watching the woman in the nearby shower?

Answer: He is listening to music and just getting getting really into it.

Toolio

Question: The final showdown between Utah and Bodhi was shot at Bells Beach, but was the wave footage also shot there? I'm especially interested in the closeups. Waves of that size and strength are not commonplace, and no surfer (save Eddie Aikau) would even attempt to tackle such a monster set.

Macalou

Chosen answer: No part of the film was shot anywhere near Bells Beach. It is not even Australia.
