When Alex is fleeing from Vacendak right after Julie Redlun first encounters Alex in the year 2009, Alex rams a car chasing him and then turns sharply to throw a random bad guy from the hood. As he makes the turn, the camera shows him shifting using a manual transmission in the center console and engaging the clutch, but when he throws the car back into gear it shows a shot of an vehicle with an automatic transmission with the shifter on the side of the steering column.

You know, one thing that really bothers me is the amount of people who just refuse to relax and watch a move without having to consider whether it should win an Oscar. I don't think Freejack was ever intended to be made for serious viewing - I think every actor in it at one time during the movie has got their tongue in their cheek.
What you do get in this movie are some spectacular effects, and I'm not talking about the end when you could just as soon go get a sandwich rather than watch the 2001-type slideshow.
It's just downright funny. Mick Jagger as the villain giving Emilio Estevez a "headstart" by counting 1-Mississippi, 2-Mississippi is priceless. David Johanson shines as the shyster in any timeframe. Rene Russo gives us an early indication of screen presence. So just relax and have fun with it.
