The Bodyguard

Factual error: Outside the Oscars, the camera pans around to show the crowds and the security guards on the surrounding rooftops. One is holding a rifle which he should be, however there is another guard standing next to him overlooking the crowd holding a shotgun. This makes no sense at all, if he were to ever use that weapon from his position he would hit dozens of people.

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the end of the movie when Whitney Houston is in her hotel room with Kevin Costner you can see the mic in a reflection in the window of the suite.

Continuity mistake: When Frank's dad is cutting mushrooms while cooking dinner, he slices a mushroom in a closeup. In the next shot, the mushroom is whole again.

Continuity mistake: In the first shot in the dressing room of the Mayan there are some white and some pink flowers on the table in front of the mirror. In the next shot the pink flowers are gone.

Continuity mistake: When Tony attacks Frank in the kitchen Frank is eating an apple. We see him cutting off and eating two slices, but in a close-up of the apple only one small slice is gone.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the Miami hotel, when Rachel and Portman are in her bedroom, someone gives Frank a fresh drink of orange juice. He takes a deep sip, the camera cuts to Rachel's bedroom door, and when it cuts back to Frank the glass is even fuller than when he got it.

Visible crew/equipment: When Frank comes back to the hotel room after the beating in the hotel kitchen Delaney informs him that Rachel had received another call from the stalker. In the scene there is a reflection of the mike in the window, and we even see how it's turned around when the take is over.

Continuity mistake: At the Academy Awards scene, when Frank shoots Portman the second time, Portman receives an (entry or exit) wound on his temple. However, the way he was standing after being shot in the chest the bullet could only have hit him from the front.

Continuity mistake: Right after Frank gets shot he shoots Portman and you see someone helping Frank get his jacket off as he's lying on the ground. The camera angle changes and you see his jacket back on and someone is starting to help him take it off again.

Factual error: When Whitney Houston turns up at the Oscars, it's night time. In reality, guests to the Academy Awards always arrive in the afternoon.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Frank puts Rachel to bed. He moves some dolls aside by pushing them, and the dolls fall over. In the following shot, where Rachel is in bed, one of the dolls is sat up straight.

Other mistake: After Frank's first visit to Rachel's house he's in the car and in the last close-up shot of him when he's about to drive away, he puts the car into park.

Continuity mistake: When Delaney hires Frank there's a sprinkler rotating in the background. When the camera angle changes it's gone, but at least the hose that runs across the lawn should be in the picture.

Continuity mistake: When Frank impresses Delaney with his knife-throwing skills he starts with some antics which even endanger Delaney. Delaney tries to get out of the way and waits next to a big garden bowl. When Frank asks him not to stand there either the bowl is gone.

Continuity mistake: The bar scene of Rachel's and Frank's date contains a lot of editing flaws: 1) Rachels position switches between both arms down and chin rested in hand, 2) in one shot from the back we see her lifting her glass to her mouth, but when the camera angle changes she's not drinking, 3) the way Frank holds his glass switches between full hand and thumb plus two fingers, 4) Rachel's bangs change between straggly and fluffy.

Continuity mistake: At the party in the Miami hotel Portman's bangs change between pulled back and covering his forehead.

Continuity mistake: In the evening following Nicki's funeral Frank and Fletcher have a talk. Fletcher's arm switches back and forth between lying on Frank's backrest and hanging down.

Continuity mistake: The birthmark on Rachel's upper lip undergoes some make-up related changes throughout the movie. However, it shouldn't have disappeared completely between the moment she says good-bye to Frank on the airport and when she sits in the plane a few seconds later.

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the end of the fight in Frank's kitchen, when Tony pulls the knife out of the holder, look at the bottom right side of the glass front of the cupboard in front of a pile of plates: There is a beautiful reflection of a crew member in a white shirt giving signs with his arm.

Continuity mistake: When Frank comes to Rachel's house for the first time he talks into a rather decrepit intercom with some bent wires hanging out. In one shot, when he says "This is Alexander Graham Bell to see Miss Marron", the wires are hanging straight.

Trivia

The script originally had Rachel singing "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted". It was Kevin Costner's idea to go with "I Will Always Love You" instead.
