Rat Race (2001)

Continuity mistake: When Duane is about to give Blaine his key, he realises it's a fake and he then lifts the other key up, and this on has a chain on it (I think it's the tracker device, which means they still have the key that the key-cutter stole), but in the next closeup the chain has gone from the key.

Rat Race (2001)

Continuity mistake: When Tracy is in the helicopter, chasing Sean who's in the truck, look at the chopper's back wings/fins. The bottom one is very short, however during the chase after Tracy yells "I want my five bucks back," the back of the chopper lowers down, and the back bottom wing/fin hits the road - only in this shot it is much longer than it is in all the other shots.

Rat Race (2001)

Revealing mistake: When Owen tells the Lucys that he stole the uniform and that he isn't a bus driver, one of the Lucys asks, "You're not a real bus driver?" By the end of the sentence the old Lucy is lip-syncing the question. (01:20:00)

Rat Race (2001)

Visible crew/equipment: When Vera and Merrill go zooming past the car repair man's garage and the garage collapses, as the man turns and mutters "whoa," the camera's shadow is clearly cast on his back (01:16:00)

Rat Race (2001)

Continuity mistake: After Randy gets lipstick on his hand, he smears it on the steering wheel. But when the bikers are attacking them, smashing the car up, in many shots you can see the steering wheel has no lipstick on it. It returns later, when it gives Randy a moustache. (00:56:25 - 01:08:10)

Rat Race (2001)

Continuity mistake: After dropping from the hot air balloon rope, Duane looks up and sees the car with Blaine on the hood, driving towards him. He gets up and starts to run away from the car, and behind the car in this shot is just field - previously there were cows in the field. The position of the cows change in a few following shots too.

Rat Race (2001)

Continuity mistake: Bev is ordering Randy to stop the car, but he won't, so she head-butts him. She is wearing a red jacket, however after she head-butts him, it goes to a wider shot outside of the car, but through the car windshield you can see she or, her stunt double, has a blue denim jacket on now.
