Continuity mistake: When Russ and Frank are in the hotel pool the woman in the left is holding a cigarette. In the close-up it swaps to a lemonade. Then in the wide angle it swaps back to a cigarette.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy is sitting with Frank at the restaurant complaining about the fact that Tony Pro is late, we see Frank holding a Coca-Cola bottle with the right hand, but in the next shot the hand disappears from the table and stays down resting on the chair.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy is in prison, eating a dish of ice cream while having a conversation with Tony Pro, the amount of ice cream in the dish keeps changing: there's more ice cream, there's less ice cream, there's more. Every shot the amount increases, then decreases next shot. Also, sometimes you can see a cherry stem in the dish and sometimes there's no cherry stem.

Continuity mistake: When Hoffa is angry at the meeting bitching about the Kennedys Frank exits and puts his coat on. The collar is raised in the front shot and lowered in the angle shot from behind.

Question: I don't quite get how the Hoffa killing plays out. His son is there in the car, Frank and Jimmy go into the house, Frank shoots him, apparently not heard, then leaves the house...doesn't Chuckie Hoffa have questions? Like where his dad is for a start, let alone the gunshots he must have heard?

Chosen answer: First off his name was Chuckie O'Brian. Jimmy Hoffa wasn't his biological father, he was more in the nature of a foster father. Second, he probably knew what happened. What was Chuckie going to do? It was a sanctioned hit. And if he went to the police he would have ended up the same as Jimmy Hoffa. They put him in the middle of it to keep him quiet. If he goes after the people who did it, he's as good as dead. If he talks he could end up in jail with them, and the mafia will probably kill him anyway.
