Revealing mistake: When Richard and Larry tie Bernie's laces to their own so they can all run together, you can see that Bernie is running along with them because he is bending his legs at the knees at the same time they are and he's supposed to be dead.

Revealing mistake: When Larry, Richard, and Gwen are running from the hitman, they run over to the glass doors and say, "It's locked." If you look at the glass, you can see the outside decking area, which appears to be a print of the outside on the glass itself. (01:24:42)

Suggested correction: If you look at the shoreline as they're at the door, you can see the movement of the waves, so it can't be a picture.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when the hitman comes to kill Bernie for one last time, Larry, Gwen, and Richard start running from the hitman and Gwen has her hat in her hand. They run over to the stereo and she drops it somewhere over by there. In later shots, however, you can see Gwen's hat lying right next to Bernie in front of the staircase.

Question: Wouldn't it be against regulation for a house, especially of that size, to be built on a section of the beach that the tide would eventually come up to? A sturdy foundation is absolutely of the question with there being nothing but sand to build it on. When the tide came up to pull Bernie into the water, it definitely would've made contact with the house.

Answer: Yes it would, but Bernie was a greedy and selfish man, he would have bribed contractors and inspectors to get it built. He wanted to live the life of a big shot. Like "The Wolf of Wall Street."
