Both Alex and Julie have completely different hairstyles between the time just before Alex goes into the sponsors' tent with Brad, and the time of the actual race. Alex goes from a flatter hairstyle to an obviously moussed or gelled one, and Julie goes from a long ponytail with bangs to a shorter, curlier style with no bangs (more resembling the style she has later in the movie).

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.
