Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004) Poster

Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

Bud's pickup tailgate is held closed (vertically) by pins retained on chains. When the pins are removed, they must be re-inserted differently to support the tailgate in the horizontal position. Bud doesn't do this before slamming the tailgate down, but the sound is distinctly that of a tailgate stopping on it supports. When the shot changes, the tailgate is unsupported, resting on the bumper. Slamming a tailgate down that way makes a very different sound because it bends the tailgate metal.

During the fight between the Bride and Elle Driver, Elle's boots change from Stiletto heels to normal heels. In the beginning of the fight Elle drives her stiletto heel into the Bride's foot. Later on, while they are fighting in the bathroom, you can clearly see Elle's boot with a different, western boot style heel.

In Budd's camper, Budd prepares Margaritas for himself and Elle. His prep and pouring are very sloppy and we see the mix splashing all on the cutting board as he pours it into the glasses. Then, as we view him coming around the counter to serve Elle her drink, the cutting board is clean and appears dry.

When BB fell asleep after watching Shogun with Mommy, Bea covers BB fully with her blanket, and puts BB's doll fully under the blanket, in the next scene we see the doll outside of the blanket. Also in the wider angle scene which Bea about to leave the room, we see BB's blanket is not fully covering her but over her belly.

Budd shot Bea with a load of rock salt in the chest, and blew a hole in her clothes and chest and bloodied her clothes and chest. By the time Bea made it back to the trailer, the blood and mess were gone and no wound existed in her chest.

At the end of the fight scene when Elle Driver retrieves the Hanzo sword from down the passageway, she throws off the sheath of the sword, hitting the ceiling lamp behind her and knocking the light out. In the next shot, the light is back on and the lamp is hanging perfectly still.

When Budd and Elle are in the trailer talking, Budd pours only a little margarita in each glass, spilling a large amount on the table. Each glass can be seen less than half full. When he walks towards Elle and hands her a glass, both glass are more than half full. Each glass is obviously more full than in the previous scene.

About a minute into the Bride/Elle Driver trailer fight scene, Elle sends the Bride tumbling into a wooden rocking chair, thus knocking over a coffee can containing expelled dipping tobacco fluid. When she recovers, the can has somehow been righted and is ready for the Bride to grab and empty in Elle's face.

When the chapter "Elle and I" starts, we see Elle pass a truck as she drives by. Behind the truck, we see another car coming. However, if you look to the right in the next shot, we see the car never passes by.

When Elle drives up to Budd's trailer, she parks pretty close to and at a 45 degree angle to the trailer. When they show the scene later from Bea's point-of-view, Elle now parks the car father away and at a 90 degree angle to the trailer.

When Bud goes back home to his trailer house, and "the Bride" is seen underneath his trailer, she crawls out and looks around for a bit - and then we hear a dog or dogs barking. It _sounds_ like 2 dogs are barking from inside the house, which makes him look out the window, and causes "the Bride" to hide against the wall underneath the window while Bud is looking outside. Minutes later, she opens the door and he shoots her with rock salt in the chest. There are no dogs in the house. In all of the scenes, for the rest of the movie, where we see the inside of Bud's trailer house... there are no dogs there. There were ALSO no dogs, in or around the house (or even the sounds of nearby dogs barking), when Bill visited earlier or when Bud left the house earlier that day to go to work. So WHY was there a sudden and mysterious sound of dogs barking (apparently from inside the house) when "the Bride" was stepping on the gravel outside, about to enter the house - after crawling out from underneath it?

The extreme close-up of the bride's face as she looks down upon Budd's trailer shows the reflection of the cameraman in her eyes.

Errors in geography 

Outside the "little chapel in El Paso" at the Bride's wedding, there can clearly be seen a Joshua Tree. There are no Joshua Trees in Texas.

Factual errors 

When Bill is making his 'superheroes' speech to the Bride, he states that DC Comics' Superman is unique among superheroes in that he actually IS the hero, and his day-to-day persona (Clark Kent in this case) is his ASSUMED identity. However, this is also true of Marvel Comics's Thor, who actually IS the demigod/superhero, and ASSUMES several human identities.

As seen in the Elle vs Bride brawl, it would be highly impractical to swordfight in a single wide trailer as depicted. Considering that katanas are about three feet long, there would not be adequate space to properly fight without obstructions.

When Budd is preparing to bury the Bride alive, he dumps a big piece of plywood onto the coffin and nails it down, but plywood is impossible to punch through, so when the Bride goes to punch her way out of the coffin, it's now made of slats, conveniently arranged so that the grain works with her.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Many errors are thought to be deliberate, or, at least, left in as a matter of stylistic choice in this pastiche of 1970s "B" action movies.
  • When Beatrix is trying to escape from the grave, she damages her right hand, which bleeds. When she goes into the coffee shop, her hand is fine.
  • Bill wipes away some of the blood on his face; in the next shot it is gone completely.
  • Budd's boss scribbles a continuous line through the roster, but in the next shot the scribble is disjointed.
  • During the final conversation between Bill and Bea, the label on Bill's bottle keeps rotating between shots.
  • When Bill hands BB her sandwich, the cutting board is clear of the cut crusts. In the next shot, he cleans the cutting board clear of the crusts to continue making another sandwich.
  • When Budd kicks Bea's sword away outside his trailer, it sticks into the side of the garbage can. When it cuts back the sword is on the ground. Cut again, the sword is back in the can. Then you hear Budd pick it up off the ground as he's talking to Elle.
  • When Bea enters Budd's trailer her jacket is zipped up. After he shoots her and she's lying on the ground, it's open.
  • Before Bea is put into the coffin, her legs are tied with a long piece of skin. In the coffin, they are tied with a belt.
  • When fighting in Budd's trailer, Bea sticks Elle's head in his toilet. Later in the fight, you can see the toilet with lid closed and porn mags stacked on it which is quickly followed by a shot with the lid up again when Elle is thrashing around blind.
  • In final conversation between Bill and Bea at the patio table, the cork bottle top continually changes position between shots.
  • When Bea is getting ready to sit down on Bill's circular couch in his living room, the wide shot reveals her about to sit down with a red pillow behind her. In the following medium shot, the pillow has moved to her left.
  • Bill cuts three crusts off BB's sandwich. In the next shot all four crusts are cut off.
  • When Bea is underground punching a hole in the coffin, there are no knots visible to us on the first punch she gives, though after the first punch, 2 knots are appear.
  • When Pai Mei shoves the bowl with rice at the Bride, it stops at the edge of the table. In the next shot it is much closer to the middle of the table.
  • A bandage on Elle's right middle finger disappears and then reappears several times in Budd's trailer.
  • When Elle is fighting Bea, in the beginning, Bea cuts Elle's face with a TV antenna. But later in the fight, when they both have samurai swords, the cuts not there.
  • When Bill poses as Arlene's father, he has his hand on Bea's left shoulder. His hand subsequently disappears and reappears between shots.
  • In the final chapter where Bea goes to Mexico for her final showdown with Bill, we see her driving in a convertible with a new, much shorter and blonder haircut. All of the subsequent events show her with the shorter blonder 'do, but then in the final scene (the next morning) where she is with BB in the hotel room, her hair is long and dirty blonde again.
  • When Budd is talking to Elle in his trailer he rests his right foot on the suitcase of money. In the next shot it's his left foot then back to the right foot again.

Bill says that it was in the third month of mourning Beatrix that he tracked her down and found she was getting married. However, it is whilst she is in LA to kill Lisa Wong that Beatrix discovers she is pregnant, and when we see her at the wedding, supposedly three months later, she appears to be in a much later stage of pregnancy than she should be. But when Bill said he tracked her down three months' later, he may have meant that that was when he found out where Beatrix was (living in El Paso with Tommy). It is conceivable that Bill then waited until several months later so that he could fully plan his attack and perhaps deliberately choosing the day before Beatrix's wedding for maximum effect.

Plot holes 

After Bea hits Bill with the 5 Point Palm Exploding Heart technique, he is only supposed to be able to walk 5 steps before dropping dead (according to the legend of the move's power), yet he manages 6 steps (hard to see the first step since it's below the camera's vision).
