The Other Guys
New York City Police Detectives P.K. Highsmith and Christopher Danston are thrill seeking, adrenaline pumping cops who thrive on catching the perps in their city. Allen Gamble and Terry Holtz are the complete opposite. Allen is accustomed to his life with numbers and computers while Terry is struggling with desk duty after unwittingly shooting Derek Jeter during a baseball game. But, when Highsmith and Danston, are taken out of the picture, Terry sees an opportunity to become the new heroes of New York City. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Other Guys”.
∙ After the awards ceremony, Highsmith and Danston return to the police station. The two are wearing their medals with red, white and blue ribbons. But when Highsmith yells “Hey, you shut your face”, the close-up view of them shows they’re not wearing the ribbons and medals. The scene cuts to a view of Allen and Terry and then back to Highsmith and Danston where they’re wearing the ribbons/medals again.
∙ Allen and Terry are about to visit the lawyers office when the building explodes, knocking them down. In the close-up, right side view of them as they’re on the ground, Allen yells about flinching in movies and the wooden gun he was carrying is on the ground, under his lower back. It cuts to an overheard view when he mentions the Millennium Falcon, and the wooden gun is now sticking out of his holster.
∙ Allen and Terry visit David Ershon’s office. As things get out of hand, Allen grabs the painting with black lines off the wall and tosses it to the floor. A moment later, he yells and tackles Ershon to the floor and the same painting came be seen on the wall again, in the background.
∙ Allen’s red Prius is taken by Ershon’s people. When it’s found, the rear passenger door is missing. A gray door is used on the car in the scenes afterward. But, when Allen and Terry wake up in the car, the view from the outside shows the rear passenger door is red again. A couple scenes later, when they race back to Don Beaman’s office, the door is gray again.
