Rat Race (2001)

Continuity mistake: At the monster truck ralley, in the first shot as the monster truck revs up, ready to jump the ramp, look at the huge advert signs behind it. One of them has "PowerBar" written on it, but in the second shot as the truck roars over the ramp, the same sign is now totally different. (01:23:25)

Visible crew/equipment: In the wide shot as Duane and Blaine drive up by the pierced girl's red car, you can briefly see a reflector, equipment and some crew reflected in the car. Then when it cuts to a close-up, you can see the reflections in the side of the wing mirror. (01:21:35)

Rat Race (2001)

Continuity mistake: When Vera and Merrill sneak up to the rocket car, and start pretending to present it, there are two men speaking by a stand, which has six microphones standing on it. However when Vera and Merrill start the rocket car up, we see the two men turning round to look, and now two of the microphones are lying down on the wooden stand, and a seventh mike has appeared.

Rat Race (2001)

Visible crew/equipment: When Enrico and Zack are searching for the heart, a dog comes along with it in its mouth. In the shot of Enrico saying "hello little doggy, hello there" if you look at the big truck parked on the road, you can see a black wire / cable trailed in front of it. This was not there in a previous shot within the same scene. (01:06:25)

Visible crew/equipment: If you look closely behind the log, as Duane and Blaine plummet over the hill in their car, as they chase the key-cutter in the hot air balloon, you can see a ramp placed, however it is painted to blend in with the ground. If you watch closely you can even see it bounce. (01:00:40)
