At the end of the movie, when Knoxx tracks down Charlie's phone call, Lucy Liu is up in the attic, trying to hack into the system that's locating Charlie. There's a satellite antenna right up in the attic, to which she connects her laptop. It's the same antenna Knoxx is using for the satellite uplink. It would be much easier to rip off the cables that connect Knoxx's computer to the Redstar satellites, wouldn't it?

When Natalie throws the muffin at Dylan in the office, it punches a hole in the door and sticks there at a perfectly horizontal angle. A moment later, when Bosley steps through the door, the muffin has: changed color, become lopsided and is now sticking farther out of the door than it was when it hit. Also, the damage done to the door when the Muffin hit is totally different than the damage shown to the door when Bosley steps in.

In the first pursuit of the Creepy Thin Man, at the party, the girls are running down the stairs while they change and begin to litter the stairwell with clothes. There's one wig dropped that's dark brown/black and straight. Though Lucy's hair at the party does appear shorter than her actual hair length, her hair is curled up at the ends, not straight like the dropped wig. So whose was it?

However, when the door opens to the room and she begins her gymnastic flips over to the system, the outfit no longer covers her hair and the oxygen mouthpiece is gone. There doesn't appear to be a hood attached to the outfit.

In the next shot we see her tracking towards Drew Barrymore, notice the deployment system (BOC) in the bottom of her rig (blue plastic handle). In the next scene we are watching her from from the front and you can now see the deployment system has changed both colour to red and it is now "pull out" instead of BOC.

At the race track, when Dylan jumps into the chauffeur's car, she says, "It's hot out there". A couple of scenes later, we see Creepy Thin Man rubbing a piece of Dylan's hair on his face, and breathing heavily. Look closely, and you can see fog coming out of his mouth. As we all know, that only happens when it's cold.

When Bosley is in the dungeon towards the end of the movie he is seen ripping his sheet to shreds trying to make a rope. If you look in the window where he throws his rope there is light coming in from outside - not necessarily daylight, but a floodlight or similar. From outside though, the wall is pitch black, with no light coming from the room either.

Very attractive, and a dramatic view, but in the next shot they're crouched on the beach, getting equipment out of the backpacks they just dropped. If they needed stuff from out of them, why did they dump them and keep walking?

In the first fight between the girls and the Thin Man, he grabs some red hair - we see him with it at the race track. However, towards the end of the film he's creeping up behind Lucy Liu and we see him with black hair. Now, the point is that at no point has he fought with Lucy Liu and grabbed her hair - yes, he fights with her AFTERWARDS and grabs some of her hair, but when we see him holding the black hair in the bell tower, he has it before he's had a chance to get any.

When the Angels are describing how to break into the computer vault, they show the first guy putting his left hand up to the reader to gain entry. When Dylan (Drew's character) puts her hand up later on to gain entry when they're actually breaking in, it's also her left hand. But when they lift the prints from the beer bottle in the restaurant, he clearly lifts the bottle with his right hand, takes a drink, then puts the bottle down, never touching it with his left. This same mistake is repeated when they show Dylan looking at the fake hand being created and lifting up out of the goo - it's a right hand that pops up (even though Dylan correctly flexes and looks at her left hand as she admires her work).

At the exotic dance club, Director #1 clearly is holding his beer bottle by his fingertips, and not touching it with his pinkie; Dylan's scanning device shows a full hand-print including his palm. Director #1 holds the beer bottle with his right hand; Dylan uses the fingerprint "glove" on her left hand. A sophisticated gel scanner would be able to distinguish the difference in the sequence and location of the fingerprints; a left handed print of the right-hand fingerprints would not work.

When Knox shows Dylan the picture of his father in the army, we see him with his arms in the air and the other man covering his face next to him. When they close in on the man's name, there are fingers near his name tag, which weren't there in the larger scope of the picture. This is to show the tricks memory can play.

While it can be difficult, it is not physically impossible to hold on to a person when a parachute is released while skydiving. Skydivers often do this for fun, with the passenger leaping away from the carrier, and activating his own parachute. This is known within the skydiving community as a "Mr. Bill" skydive.

Revealing mistakes 

There is a common misconception that USA law requires actors portraying military personnel to wear the uniform improperly ("out of uniform") so as to not be "impersonating" military personnel. This is simply not so. 10 U.S.C. 772(f) does authorize the wear of an armed forces uniform by an actor in a theatrical or motion picture production "if that portrayal does not tend to discredit that armed force." SCHACHT v. UNITED STATES was a Supreme Court case in 1970 which found the preceding quote unconstitutional. As such, actors may wear the uniform in a theatrical or motion picture production without fear that it must reflect well on the military. Short version: Any movies which depict improperly worn uniforms can't use this excuse. They simply goofed up.

Iroquois helicopters use mechanical linkages for the flight controls. Nor do any of the wires related to the electrical functions of the cyclic stick go anywhere near the cargohook area. Even if they did, ripping the wires out would not have any impact on the ability of the pilot to fly the aircraft. At worst, he would not be able to fire any more missile, release the cargo hook, fire the cablecut device for the hoist (if fitted), or use the push-to-talk switch (the red trigger on the front of the cyclic stick that many other films incorrectly use to fire weapons) to activate the radios.

When Dylan falls from the window to the boys' backyard naked, she is obviously wearing a flesh-tone body stocking. During the fall, she is supplanted by an obvious dummy.

When the angels are all talking to Vivian Wood and Eric Knox in the "umbrella" lunch area, Vivian's sunglasses show an obvious white background, when the real background behind the Angels is clouded skies and more buildings/umbrellas.

During the fight scene in the alley with the Creepy Thin Man, as he flips over and over, an up shot shows the ceiling of the sound stage it was being filmed in.

In the helicopter scene, the Angels are wearing high-heeled black boots in the close-up shots but the long-shots show flat-heeled black sneakers worn, presumably, by the stunt doubles.

On the helicopter at the end, Lucy Liu is wearing high heeled boots in closeup shots (where we see it is Lucy) and on the further away ones, the stunt person is wearing flat boots.

While the Nokia Communicator cell phone rings, there is the name "CHARLIE" displayed on the LCD screen. But, instead of giving the owner an option to accept or reject the call, the display reads "Detail" and "Exit". This proves no one is calling - someone is just browsing the phone's memory.

When Eric Knox is putting the CD inside the player, the side of the CD shown is clearly the recording side but a CD has to be played always with the recording side facing down.

After Jason's trailer gets riddled with bullets he and Alex are standing outside with the western backdrop in the background. Most of the bullet holes have the sharp edges coming outwards, but the shooters were shooting toward the backdrop, so that side of the trailer should have had the holes going inward.

The satellite image of Charlie's cabin is obviously not from a satellite. Satellites would provide a "top view" of the cabin, not a perfectly horizontal one.

When the Angels are fighting the "Creepy Thin Man," right before Drew Barrymore lifts up Lucy Liu to spin her around and kick the thin man, to get Lucy's attention, Drew hollers out "Lucy!" even though Lucy Liu's character's name is "Alex."

When the Angels are driving through a tunnel and decide to turn around to get to the marina, there are distinct skid marks the exact same way the girls U-turn. Evidence of previous takes.

When Drew is shot through the window, supposedly naked under the towel, you can see underwear when the shot is from below looking up, before she falls. As she falls down the hill, look closely and you can see the skin-tone suit she wears.

When the Angels are picking through the wreckage of their headquarters, look at the only remaining wall - it's the thinnest wall you'll ever see.

When Dylan gets shot through the window by Knox, the scene is then rewound and replayed in slow motion. The playback of the speech and video seems to be at normal speed with just the pitch lowered, although the Marvin Gaye song in the background is accurately slowed down. In the same shot when it cuts to Bullet Time, immediately after firing the gun, Knox blinks. We see his eyes close, then open while the bullet has traveled a mere 4 inches from the barrel. Assuming the bullet is travelling at over 1000 feet per second, Knox is not only quick on the trigger, but has the fastest eyes as well.

It's obvious when Alex runs to jump on the guys back to massage him that she actually just runs past the table.

The opening shot of the film shows a Cigarette boat racing across the water at great speed. The following shot is of the girls driving the boat. The wake only trails back a hundred feet or so.

In the F1 chase scene Thin Man causes one car to fly in the air and when it finally lands on a station wagon in the middle of the road you can see no one is in the car.

In the first fight scene with Creepy Thin Man, there's a slow motion shot in where Natalie is jumping to kick him. If you look closely at the face of the Creepy Thin Man you can see that he actually is the stuntman.

When the Creepy Thin Man's shooting at the Angels, Lucy Liu ducks behind a wall, and we see a bullet impact just above her head out of shot. When Thin Man runs out of bullets, Lucy peeks round the corner, and poking down from the top of the screen is what looks suspiciously like a wire from the explosive used to generate the bullet hit.

When Knox shoots at Dylan and she goes through the window, the shards of the glass not only change shape when she's hanging from the sheet, but the glass itself changes form entirely. When she's sent through the window, it's made of tempered glass (shatters into pebble like pieces) yet when the sheet was hanging from the spike of glass, it was a non-tempered kind.

When Natalie and Vivian are fighting, you can see the small of Vivian's back a couple of times, indicating that she is wearing a two-piece suit (trousers and a top). However, after she rips off her jacket after she and Natalie roll down the stairs, she is wearing a one-piece garment (catsuit).

At the end scene on the beach, there is a shot of Charlie walking off to the left along the beach. The setting sun is reflected in the sea behind him. In the next shot (looking squarely out to sea, with Bosley and the angels in the foreground) the sun is high and to the right of the camera.

Right after the agency is blown up, the Angels' hair goes from messy to combed and styled to messy again, and their faces go from ash-covered to clean to dirty again, beginning with Dylan.

Just before Knox shoots Dylan out of the window, he eats a strawberry, and spits the pips at Dylan. A pip appears and disappears on Dylan's chin, just before she falls.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the slow motion replay of Dylan being shot at, Knox's dialogue does not match his original actions. The first time, he puts the gun to his head before he begins to speak. In the replay, he begins to speak well before he takes the gun from Vivian. This is to show different perspectives of the same scene.

Revealing mistakes 

When Natalie kicks the board that Vivian throws at her, you can see the strings used to pull the wood apart.
