Plot hole: When the FBI finds out that Dolarhyde knows where Graham lives, they send a chopper and some agents over to Graham's house to pick up his wife and son. His wife is startled by the noise of the chopper SUDDENLY appearing without any warning. How could she have not heard the chopper approaching or seen the light?
Factual error: In the scene when Will is opening the drawer of films from the Leeds home, there is clearly a copy of Mrs. Doubtfire in the left column of tapes. How can that be? Red Dragon is clearly set "several years" after 1980, as the caption says, but before the 1991 Silence of the Lambs, but "Mrs. Doubtfire" came out in 1993.
Will Graham: I thought you might enjoy the challenge. See if you're smarter than the person I'm looking for.
Hannibal Lecter: Then by implication, you think you're smarter than I am, since it was you who caught me.
Will Graham: No. I know I'm not smarter than you.
Hannibal Lecter: Then how did you catch me?
Will Graham: You had...disadvantages.
Hannibal Lecter: What disadvantages?
Will Graham: You're insane.
