Mistake: Unburned toast
When Nicholas Cage is in his brother’s kitchen, and his brother is cooking him breakfast, you can see a shot of the toaster smoking. When he pops the toast up, you can see that it is visibly black. When he goes to put the toast on Cage’s plate, you can see both sides of the toast, and it appears that the toast is cooked quite nicely, and not burnt at all.

Mistake: Car list
During the movie the “pizza boy” steals a Cadillac loaded with drugs. Nicholas Cage argues with him because he stole a car that was not on the list. This all occurs before the big boost night. Pause the movie when they are showing the list on boost night. You will see that the Cadillac El Dorado is on the list after all.

Mistake: Switched seats
Go to the sequence when Randolph and Kip are driving down the street and are being shot at. Immediately before they are shot at, they are talking and sitting in a vehicle with cloth captain chairs. When they are cut off, they are driving a junk car with vinyl seats.

Mistake: Visible wire
During the big chase scene, an Asian police officer will come flying out of an alley and get broadsided by a streetcar. Look closely at the undercarriage of the police car and the road to see a steel wire. The wire is secured to the front of the police car’s axle, runs along the entire undercarriage of the car, and across the street into the alley from which the car emerged from. You can see it best when you are looking at the driver’s side of the police car, just when the streetcar rams into its passenger side. The wire along the ground will flail around on the street because of the slack caused by the impact. Also, after the streetcar hits the police car and crushes it against another car, a fire will ignite which clearly shows the steel cable under the police car.

Mistake: Fixed side mirror
When Nicholas Cage finally steals the car he fears, it takes him awhile to do any damage to it. Eventually, he will knock off the passenger door mirror. At that point, the car will stall. After begging and pleading with it, the car starts. As Cage pulls away with a police car in pursuit, you will see a behind and slightly above the two cars view. Miraculously the passenger side mirror is back in its original place, firmly secured to the car.

Mistake: Jaguar XJ220 timing
During a shot of them loading cars, you will see a Jaguar XJ220 pull in, yet it is quite a later point in the movie that Sway pulls up in the car and says, “I love that car.” Also, the car is crossed off much earlier than it is stolen.

Secret: Hidden poster
After Mirror Man distracts the policeman, check out the poster behind him as he leaves. You will see a big “GONE” and if you look closely you will see “in sixty seconds”.
