Goofs

When Danny Williams and Chin Ho are tailing Jack Houston (Sam Elliott), they engage in a conversation about not getting too close to his car and about his erratic driving, but a close-up of them through the car's windshield during this dialogue shows neither of them is moving his mouth. See more »
