Rat Race (2001)

Continuity mistake: At the start of the scene where the taxi driver leaves Owen out in the desert, in the first wide shot of them driving on the road, the road has no markings on it. In the next shot of inside the car, you can clearly see out the back window of the car that the road now has double yellows lines running across the middle of the road. (00:35:40)

Other mistake: After the woman falls down the stairs, the lawyer asked what happened and a lady says she "tripped over that glass." How could she have seen this if she was down at the bottom of the stairs? (00:07:00)

Visible crew/equipment: When Tracy throws the fire extinguisher into Sean's truck, and it goes off, sending CO2 gas everywhere, you can see the thin black tube running across the pavement, to under the car, presumably used to spray the gas out of. That tube wasn't there earlier! (00:44:40)
