When Ed looks at the picture in the hospital, he says "I LUV YOU, out of Caracas. A Panamanian ship.." Caracas is in Venezuela, not Panama. Also, when the picture is shown to the audience, there is no indication of the ship's registry (no visible flag, crest, or wording). Ed would have no way of knowing that the ship was from Caracas.
In the video/theatrical release, in the final battle with Vincent Ludwig, Frank Drebin's chest protector has deflated without reason. (note: the network television broadcast adds a scene in which Ludwig shoots the chest protector, causing it to deflate.)
In the opening scene, just as the Ayatollah starts speaking Frank Drebin (in disguise) is standing side by side with the Ayatollah's chair. Immediately following the next edit he is suddenly standing facing the chair.
During the baseball scrum, Seattle #41 in gray swings a chair at LA #5 (Beverly), just as the chair hits him, the camera cuts to a tighter angle showing the chair breaking apart across #50's (Lombardo's) back.
As Frank gets up to speak during the press conference, the mayor sits with her chin resting on her hand. When Frank comments on how a queen might seem strange to Americans, it cuts to a close-up of the mayor and both her hands are resting on the table.
When Frank is at the press conference, he picks up an almost empty pitcher and we see a glass is sitting behind it, then he starts pouring water his water into his glass. When they cut back to the scene there is now a full pitcher of water where the empty on was sitting.
When Ludwig asks Papshmir if he's ever witnessed "sensory-induced hypnosis," Papshmir moves his hand from his chest to the arm of his chair. It then cuts to a closer shot of Papshmir, and his hand is back on his chest and he moves it to the arm again.
During the opening scene in Beirut, Frank (In disguise) keeps changing position from shot to shot. When the Ayatollah gets the attention of the others, Frank is standing next to Gorbachev. In the closer shot of the Ayatollah, he is standing at the table in the corner of the room. Then, in the next shot, he is walking over to the table.
At the ballpark, Ludwig drags Jane up the stairs which knocks popcorn out the hands of the only two fans who had popcorn. Instantly, when Frank follows up the same flight of stairs, six fans were holding popcorn which gets knocked out too by Frank ascending the steps.
The Angels play in Anaheim, not Los Angeles. While the game scenes were filmed at Dodger Stadium, it was identified in dialogue as Anaheim Stadium. While Anaheim is considered to be part of the Greater Los Angeles area, it is located outside the municipality and county of Los Angeles, and would be outside police and governmental jurisdiction of Los Angeles.
Ludwig mentions that the fish in his tank are 'Japanese Fighting Fish'. They are actually Lionfish. There are no actual 'Japanese Fighting Fish'. Siamese Fighting Fish, or bettas, are much smaller and cost much less than Ludwig says.
When Drebin is singing the national anthem, the American flag behind him is in the wrong position. The Union Jack is to the flag's right. US Flag protocol mandates that no flag should be on the American Flag's right (the viewer's left) when flown at the same height.
When Frank is pretending to be the home plate umpire, the first pitch is thrown. The catcher catches it, and everyone stops and looks at him for his call. In reality, if the home plate umpire makes no call and says nothing, it's a ball.
When Frank hits the trash cans in front of the police station, the airbags deploy and the second "airbag" pushes the gear selector up, causing the car to roll down the hill. In a car with an automatic transmission, the selector must be moved down to take the car out of 'park'.
When Frank Drebin is umpiring the baseball game, a scene shows four Angels players crossing second base during the same play. This is a joke, as the situation is impossible in baseball; even during a grand slam, only three players touch second base. The scoreboard later shows no more than 2 runs scoring in any inning, in keeping with the joke.
Neither team wears proper MLB batting helmets as evidenced by the lack of team logos, and each helmet with two sided ear flaps. Notably, the Angels are seen wearing red batting helmets, when at the time they were dark blue with a red bill, matching the team's baseball caps.
After Nordberg has been sent careening down the steps of the stadium by Drebin, he hits the fence and flies out of his wheelchair. The gas from the gas cannon that fired his stunt dummy out of the chair can be clearly seen.
