Continuity mistake: George's son is disappointed because his dad missed the ball game and tells him that he should have been there. Meanwhile Denise Richards approaches the cooking pot with her spoon in her right hand and the plate in her left. Close-up on her telling Howie that dad was busy, and spoon and plate switched hands. (00:18:45)
Continuity mistake: In the scene near the end of the movie where Ellen Miller asks Robert Miller to lift up his shirt, and then slaps him in the stomach with a newspaper, we see that his right shoulder suspender is properly positioned, however in the next shot from behind him his suspender over his right shoulder appears to be twisted 180 degrees. As he turns to walk into the inner bedroom the suspender is once again back to a proper fit.
Continuity mistake: In the parking garage scene, when Lindsay initially parks the sign states "Reserved For Walter Deeds." When being towed his name on the sign disappears. (00:06:30 - 00:10:45)
Continuity mistake: In the middle of the film, the girl scouts and the leader are having a juice break and in walks the love interest (the father of one of the scouts). In the shot where the leader walks towards the love interest, the way she carries her glass of juice changes from the top to the side.
Factual error: In the scene where Robert Redford is hiding in his car in dealer's lot, the FBI say they have him tracked and located, "Got him. Just off I-94 near Gurnee, IL." Redford may be in Gurnee, but the local police speeding to catch him are not: The area around Gurnee is flat as a pancake, yet the police drive by many tall hills and/or small mountains. (01:09:00)
Continuity mistake: Celeste's white Honda (Alabama plate #LF8VN3D) is riddled with bullets right after she drives up to the cabin, but there aren't any bullet holes later after the police show up. (01:26:00 - 01:45:00)
Continuity mistake: During the scene where Daniella and Clay are enjoying a glass of wine together and she is revealing how much she knows about him, Daniella's left hand/arm positions change continually throughout the shots, from on the chair arm to playing with her hair/alongside her face.
Other mistake: The news anchor in the opening scene noticeably flubs her lines at one point.
Character mistake: When Michael goes to the antique shop, the sign out front is spelled wrong; it reads "anitques."
Continuity mistake: In the underground lab, Dr. Su offers to surgically remove the false memories he implanted in John's brain. He drills a half-inch hole in the right side of John's forehead, which leaves the right side of his face covered in flowing blood. John can't stand the pain, breaks free, and he goes on a rampage throughout the underground bunker, killing every UniSol in his path. As he fights his way through the bunker, the bleeding hole in John's head switches from the right side of his forehead to the left side, then back to the right side again. Also, in the last scene (an unspecified amount of time after the bunker brawl), John has no scar on his forehead at all.
Other mistake: After the medical student leaves the unconscious co-pilot to one of the other passengers to watch while he goes to the bathroom, she notices his hands grow cold after a bit. It is only then they realise he has stopped breathing, and then get a defibrillator out and are successfully able to use it to revive him with CPR as well. However if he has stopped breathing for long enough that his hands have started to get cold, he would already be way too far gone to be able to be revived.
Other mistake: After the daughter visited with her mother for the first time, she is reviewing the footage with the priests. No such camera angles were taken for what they reviewed, only an overhead room camera would have been available.
Factual error: Kuklinski is looking at a newspaper which is dated January 3rd 1983, and the text reads that Roy DeMeo was found dead the previous day. In actuality, Roy DeMeo died on January 10th 1983. (01:22:55)
