Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Semmi picks up the Hold-Up Man's shotgun, he cocks it and points it at him. Since the robber fired a shot into the ceiling moments before, the shotgun should have ejected a spent shell, but it didn't.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Akeem and Semmi are working out (stick fighting) and Semmi knocks Akeem's stick out of his hands, it never hits the floor. In the next wide shot, it disappears.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The position of the microphone lying on the stage after Randy Watson drops it.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): During a scene in the McDowell home, the dog is sitting on the piano stool. Throughout the scene, the piano lid changes between being open and shut.
