When Mossi pumps his shotgun, we hear a spent metal bullet casing hit the floor, not the mostly plastic shotgun cartridge seen ejecting from the gun, which would have a distinctly different sound.

Character error 

When Ryan and Justin are looking through Mossi Kasic's file with Segars at the police station, one of the papers is a "Notice of Inmate's Release" form, noting the "INMATE DATE OF BIRH" (sic) as 07/15/2009 and the "DATE OF SENTENCING" of 02/08/1995, suggesting that Mossi was sentenced 14 years before his own birth.

When O'Malley and Chang get pulled over by Officers Segars and Jackson, Officer Segars notices O'Malley's sergeant stripes and salutes him as Sergeant. But right after that O'Malley introduces themselves as Officers, not Sergeant O'Malley and Officer Chang.

Continuity 

In the impromptu boxing match, Justin is punched in slow motion on his lower jaw/chin area. The next scene, he is shown touching a bruise on his face next to his left eye, nowhere near where he got punched.

When they are spying on detective Brolin from Annie's apartment rain can be seen on the windows during the inside scenes, but when they look through the camera there is no sign of rain outside, or on the building they are staring into.

When they arrive to Annie's apartment, Ryan is wearing the detective outfit, later watching and taking pictures at the window he is wearing the officer outfit again.

When they go to the first party dressed as cops, they just pull two uniforms out of a box, without any indication they had worn them before. At the party, Miller's brass name tag says CHANG, a joke they run with for the entire movie. But O'Malley's name tag already says O'Malley. This is before he goes online to get all the extras to flesh out the uniform.

When Ryan is first seen playing football with the kids, his sweatshirt is inside out. After a certain point, it is no longer inside out.

Throughout the film, Ryan and Justin are supposed to be wearing real bulletproof vests, yet half the time they're wearing the uniforms, it's pretty obvious that they aren't, as there's no extra bill in their chests, and the other half of the time, the vest constantly moves from under their shirts to over their shirts in between shots.

In the last scene before the credits start rolling, when Ryan and Pupa arrive at E3 to pick up Justin, the Dodge Charger they arrive in has heavily tinted windows. When the action proceeds inside the car, you can easily notice the windows have no tint whatsoever.

Errors in geography 

The Atlanta skyline can briefly be seen in the background of "Los Angeles" when Ryan O'Malley is being chased by the gun-men.

Factual errors 

Many of the police throughout the movie hold their weapons with finger on the trigger, a mistake no real law enforcement officer would ever make.

The cop cars in the film, even the "real" ones, don't have a cage between the front and back seat, which real police vehicles have in order to prevent "perps" from attacking the driver and causing an accident to escape.

The analog-only radio scanner (Uniden BCT15X) used in the main characters' fake cop car is incapable of receiving the LAPD's digital frequencies.

During the climax Segars has what appears to be a SIG P-226, which is not issued by LAPD.

The frequency shown (53.98 MHz) on the main characters' radio scanner in their fake cop car when they "respond" to the domestic violence call is actually used by the amateur radio service.

At the end, Ryan is driving a real police car. You can see the license plate is a newer style California 'commercial' plate - a police car would be an exempt plate.

When the two real police officers enter the sporting goods store, they both rack the slide back on their handgun. No shell is ejected. This means that there was not a round in the chamber, and as such, if the officer merely drew his gun and pulled the trigger, no round would have been fired prior to racking (sliding back) the slide to chamber a round. No officer would ever carry a weapon like this - it's essentially carrying an unloaded weapon.

Although Ryan is wearing sergeant stripes his badge still says "Police Officer." Real LAPD sergeant badges say "Sergeant", something the real officers in the film would likely spot right away.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Throughout the movie the cops are wearing white undershirts except when they strip for the girls, they are bare chested. This is a gag.

Revealing mistakes 

The opening cityscape shows buildings decorated for Christmas, but the plot is set in June.

Pupa's mustache adhesive can be seen through the thin hairs when there are close-up shots.

When Ryan is scrolling through JaQuandae's messages and we get a brief view of the phone screen, the second response Justin reads while imitating her is not in the conversation.
