Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when the main character takes his stack of money and wraps it in his light jacket. As he walks with it in hand he leaves the building while talking to his opponent. Upon exiting the building in the next shot, he's wearing the jacket and there is no sign of where the large stack of money went.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny is congratulated for his victory by Danny and his friends outside, there's a scene where they push him around and it alternates between a normal shot and a closeup to Johnny's face. It's very easy to spot that the closeup is definitely another separate shot because the expression on his face changes from one to another pretty obvious.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film when Jon Doyle is in the pool hall with the "brothas" and he starts saying that "quiet as a church" quote, the people playing pool in the background disappear as do the balls on the tables between some shots.

Johnny Doyle: But Merv, I didn't say I would tell you where you'd bought 'em, I said I'd tell you where you got 'em, and right now you got 'em on your feet.
