Continuity mistake: When Donnie steals Chuckie's clothes and glasses, Chuckie puts on Donnie's shorts and complains about his eyesight. But later in the movie, when he doesn't have his glasses, it seems he can see just fine. Then, when he gets his glasses back, he says something like "I can see again."
Continuity mistake: Nino gets trussed up in silver duct tape. The boy gets bundled over the shoulders of one of the bad guys, and you can see that there is only a small amount of tape around his legs. They go straight inside the meat packing factory and suddenly in the next shot, there is a huge amount of tape around the boy's legs.
Continuity mistake: The first time at the station, Sweetu looks back at the camera representing Aman with a confused look on her face, mouth open a little bit, teeth clenched. During the Heartbeat instrumental song when they show a flashback of the same moment with Aman in the shot, Sweetu looks at him with a big smile on her face. You can see this because when her face turns her mouth is visibly wide open and her lips are curled upward. (00:10:35 - 00:20:40)
Continuity mistake: As the New Main Street Singers are performing their second song at the show, you can see Parker Posey pretend to use her guitar as a shotgun. The strap for the guitar drops from her shoulder down to her right forearm when she does this. When the shot changes the strap is back up over her shoulder. (01:01:40)Lummie
Continuity mistake: As Nicolas Cage is smoking a cigarette in his car when his daughter comes into view for the 1st time. The camera angle flips between him, him with her in the background, to his key, back to him, and back to him with her in the background. Each time the angle changes so does the length of his cigarette. The time span is only a matter of 10-15 secs as she walks up and then starts to walk away, but his cigarette ends up being longer than when she walked up. (00:25:25)Donald Jenkins
Continuity mistake: Julie doesn't come home one night; the next day as she is getting out of the pool we see that she has been "roughed up" and has a black eye. Next to her eye there is a circular bruise/mark. That evening, as Julie and Sarah are at dinner the bruise is now under Julie's eye and is a different shape (longer and more oval in shape). (00:52:50 - 00:58:00)JustJudy
Plot hole: When Bryan is shuffled in at "The Baywatch" as one of the dancing extras, wouldn't the director of the film notice that one of his beach dancers (Bryan) is actually dressed for cold weather rather than a day at the beach? He's wearing sweats and a hooded sweatshirt, and he stands out like a sore thumb with all those girls in bikinis around him.
Audio problem: When John confronts Selima about the baby and they've walked out of the house and down the steps, from the side of her face you can see Selima's lips moving even though there is no sound coming out.
