At about 33 mins into the movie when Karen is in the pool talking to Jon, in one shot she wrings water out of her hair and lowers her hands, it cuts to a shot from behind her and when it cuts back, she's still wringing water from her hair. This happens maybe one more time.

Near the end of the film there's a close up as Ray Kurz is shown tying motor officer's boots which only have laces for a few inches, at the instep of the boot. Later, when he shoots the girl in the swimming pool and a few moments later, when he walks up on Karen who is handcuffed to the post, he's wearing combat boots, which have laces all the way up to the top. Later on, in the fight scene in very last scenes of the film, he's back in motor boots.

When Kurtz is driving to the bridge, a large scuff mark can be seen on the windscreen. Long shots while the vehicle is on the bridge show a pristine windscreen.

Baker states early in the film that his right humerus is titanium. When he is shot at the end of the film, it looks like the entire upper arm is titanium and then covered with a layer of skin.

When Ponch and Baker go to TJ's second home (0:51:38), TJ and Barton's drivers license are shown to them, you can notice clearly that David Barton's Drivers License shows an error in his Date of Birth (DOB), it says 41/21/1976. It was probably supposed to read 01/21/1976 or 11/21/1976.

Miscellaneous 

When Jon is outside the convenience store and throws his pills in to his mouth, he drops one on the ground when getting ready to chase a seat belt ticket but acts like nothing happened.

Plot holes 

Early in the film, Baker mentions that his right humerus (right upper arm) is titanium. At the end of the film, though, bullets are fired at him and they strike his left arm, causing one to ricochet and kill the villain.

Revealing mistakes 

As Ponch pulls away from the bank robbery you see a California state flag flying in front of the building.
