Continuity mistake: While Matt Damon is questioning the CEO of the insurance company, he removes a large book of insurance information from the CEO's lap, pushing his microphone out. He then gives the CEO a document that virtually wins the case. When he reads it, the shot clearly shows the mic is back where it shuold be. Yeah, maybe he pulled it back. But in the next shot, when Matt asks him to read it again, he comes up to him and pushes the mic back to where it was before. (01:52:55)
Continuity mistake: One morning Rudy wakes up from the clattering noises Ms. Birdie is making when she unloads a number of biggish garden tools from a wheelbarrow. The camera cuts to Rudy who is trying to sleep while we hear her unloading, then back to Ms. Birdie where the number of tools on the wheelbarrow has gone up again. (00:22:20)
Continuity mistake: When Rudy comes to the Black's place the first time and Donny Ray's nose starts bleeding, blood drops on the letter in which Great Benefits deny their claim for the eighth and last time, calling Dot Black "stupid, stupid, stupid". The letter dates from April 25, 1995 and is signed by Russell Krokit. When the same letter is produced as evidence when Everett Rufkin is heard as a witness the letter dates from July 7, 1994 and is signed by Everett Rufkin with copy to Russell Krokit. (00:10:50 - 01:17:30)
Continuity mistake: When Dot Black wants her husband to sign the contract she walks up to the car wreck where he is sitting in. There are numerous cats sitting on the car, and when Dot gets there all of them run away except one white one on the roof. When Dot starts talking to her hubby all cats have disappeared, but in the next wide shot we see her chasing a black cat off the roof. (00:10:30)
Continuity mistake: When Rudy is talking to Kelly in her room at the hospital, after her husband has thrown a drink over her, the neckline on Kelly's hospital gown and the drink stains on it change at least three times.
Continuity mistake: When Kelly calls Rudy at night after his return from Cleveland he is lying in bed in his suit. There's a close-up where the blanket is pulled up to his chin, but when the camera angle changes as he puts the receiver back his arms and shoulders are uncovered. (01:02:55)
Continuity mistake: When Matt Damon is protecting Claire Danes from her rampaging husband just after they arrived at her house to get her clothes, you see Matt's hands are up, trying to calm Claire's husband down, yet, in the next shot, his hands are behind him, keeping Claire behind. They change back in the next shot. (01:24:30)
