Rat Race (2001)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where everybody is racing downstairs, as they all fall in the corner you can see Vera is wearing high heels. Later on in the film, especially noticeable at the rocket car scene, she now has flat shoes on. What, did they take a trip to the shoe shop during their frantic race to Silver City?

Continuity mistake: In the single outside shot of the "Fatburger" diner, when we hear Bev saying "right, everybody OK? You alright..." look at Hitler's car, parked out front - you can see that the front windsheild (which got smashed earlier) is either missing or intact, because no smash marks are visible. (01:16:10)

Visible crew/equipment: When the rocket car zooms past the repair mans garage and it collapses, you can see a wire running across the outside of the garage, from above the window to behind the petrol pump, and there is a white cable trailed across the road to the left of the garage - in an earlier shot you can clearly see these were not here.
