Continuity mistake: Right before they rob the police car, a Boeing 747 (four engines) is seen in shots of the plane coming into land. When the plane is shown from behind, it is a Boeing 767, with only two engines and fewer main landing gears.
Other mistake: When Somerset goes back to the man's house alone, he cuts a sticker on the door with his switch-blade to get in. The first error is the sticker is on the inside and it says "Keep Out." The best part about it is the door opens inward. How did they put the sticker on the inside and then exit?
Revealing mistake: On Billy's first day of school when he is outside waiting for the bus and it just passes him you hear the noise of kids on a bus, but when it passes no one is in it.
Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the film where Robert De Niro gets into his car and it explodes, you can clearly see the cut where they have replaced him with a dummy.
Continuity mistake: When the two female characters enter the fancy hotel room, they make a point to say they will only be there for a couple of minutes. It is daylight when they go in. The visit is cut short (the one that's supposed to be a few minutes long) because of a gun battle in which one of the women dies and the other escapes. The escaped one gets out through the roof into an evening's sky. There's still light visible, but for a visit that lasts all of 4 minutes, it's far too quick a change.
Continuity mistake: In one of the major battles, Wallace is charging down a hill with a large sword in his hand. During the charging it changes to being a small pick axe type tool. Then around the middle of the charge there is a quick shot change and almost from the same angle the pick axe has disappeared. It then changes back to a large sword, a quick change back to the pick axe, then back to the large sword.
Deliberate mistake: When "Legs" lowers the Pez duck named Ducky down through the removed lightbulb hole, to ring the doorbell, the lightbulb housing is bigger than the hole but they bring it up through the hole to remove it.
Revealing mistake: When Scorpion and Johnny Cage are in the forest, you can see a car drive by in the far left corner. You have to look really close though.
Continuity mistake: There is a scene where everyone is dancing. It's towards the end but not at the very end. One of the employees of the record store takes his shirt off. Then the camera cuts back and you see the entire group of people dancing. If you look at him he has his shirt back on. Then a couple of shots later he has it back off again.
Continuity mistake: Tom and Huck have just swore they won't tell about the murder. Tom writes an oath, and Tom and Huck slit their fingers to sign it in blood. Tom, slits the index finger on his right hand. He signs the oath, however, with his index finger on his LEFT hand.
Continuity mistake: When Babe is walking through the house, you will notice that several times his feet switch from muddy to clean as the camera angle changes.
Continuity mistake: When the white boy is standing outside the car talking to the gangbanger inside the car, the gangster's sunglasses disappear depending on the camera angle.
Continuity mistake: Hester's estrange husband mistakenly kills a man at the end, and you see him cut his hair and his scalp off, then later when people find his body (after his suicide) his hair and scalp are intact. Then later you see him with the hair and scalp in his hands again.
Revealing mistake: When Two Face and Riddler enter Wayne Manor, and knock Alfred down. Alfred, unconscious, pushes the dinner tray aside, so the thugs can carry him into the closet.
Factual error: Angela Bennett finds the Praetorian's IP while using the PC in the Cathedral's bank: it's 23.75.345.200 - they want us to believe that this is an IP, but no IP can contain numbers greater than 255. [Common practice, like fake phone numbers, but still worth noticing].
Continuity mistake: When Ace is solving the case in front of the guy that hired him, the guy is playing chess with no-one at all. Then Ace takes big steps towards him, moves a piece, then when the camera cuts back to the guy playing chess, all the chess pieces are gone, no sign of them whatsoever. Then they reappear later.
Revealing mistake: Near the end, as they approach LAX, the woman says there is nobody on the ground, that it's just the same as Bangor, but actually you can see a few cars moving on the ground.
Continuity mistake: During the confrontation with the cadet's drunken parent, Damon Wayans forgets to remove his earring before shooting. Pay attention to his ears - you'll see an earring in one shot and then nothing.
Continuity mistake: When Deebo is riding his bike to Craig's house the first time, one shot shows Deebo nearly on the driveway. Just then Smokey and Craig remove all their valuables. If this were true, Deebo should have seen these. But then in another shot, Deebo's bike is shown just coming onto the driveway. In that amount of time, Deebo should have been further up the driveway.
Continuity mistake: Moving out to Sera, Ben is packing his things in a motel. You can see a half full glass standing on a bed table on his left. In the next shot Ben is pouring alcohol to an EMPTY glass filling it in 1/3 approx. In the next scene glass is half full again and in the next one - FULL. Eventually he is drinking from a glass full of alcohol.
Continuity mistake: Chili Palmer goes to DeVito's house and parks his mini van next to the curb facing one direction. When Chili gives DeVito the keys for a test ride, the mini van is now parked facing the other direction on the street.

Other mistake: The Magic Eye Picture that Willem is looking at throughout the movie is NOT a sailboat. If you pause the movie and find the image it's actually three rows of 3D shapes.
Continuity mistake: Stallone is eating a banana when he is on the computer in the Mariott. He takes a bite and the banana is smaller, then in the next shot it is bigger again.
Continuity mistake: When they are arguing in his bedroom, her scarf and coat are closed at one point, then open, then closed.
