The Bride: Then give me one of these.
Hattori Hanzo: These are not for sale.
The Bride: I didn't say "sell me". I said "give me".
Anybody else catch the "square" thing? Uma Thurman did the same thing in Pulp Fiction. See more...

Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003) - 72 mistakes
Bear in mind that this makes many deliberate references to martial arts films of the past, and as such is not supposed to be 100% true to life. Examples of "allowable" mistakes include the Bride taking her sword on the plane, and the fact that the blood levels are obviously ridiculous.
Continuity: During the fight at Venita's house, she overturns a large shelving unit onto the Bride. A shot from the floor (behind the Bride's head) shows nothing on the floor to the right. As the shelving begins to fall, a basket of magazines suddenly appears and the left edge of the unit is seen falling to the outside of the basket. A moment later Venita bolts for the kitchen and the shot cuts back to the Bride. The basket is now outside the edge of the unit (and some of the shelves themselves have disappeared as well).
Factual error: In the beginning of the anime sequence we see O-Ren's father from behind, along with his Army rank on his left shoulder. The rank in the movie has two chevrons on top (the upside down "V"s), three "rockers" on the bottom (the bowl shapes) and a star in the middle. The real Army rank of Sergeant Major has three chevrons on top - no rank except corporal has only two chevrons, and corporals have no rockers or other insignia.
Continuity: During the "The Man from Okinawa" chapter, The Bride picks up a sword from one of the racks on the wall. She slides the sword out from its scabbard approx. 4 inches and stops. The next shot shows the reflection of her eyes in the blade. In the third shot, we see a wider view of The Bride again but now the scabbard is much farther out than where it used to be.
Factual error: Near the end of the anime sequence when O-Ren murders the crime boss, there's a shot of the wall/ceiling behind her as she pulls the sword out of his stomach and you see the outline of O-Ren in the blood on the wall. In the next shot of O-Ren's face and body she only has minimal amounts of blood on her. Considering there was enough blood spraying out that you can see her outline on the wall behind her, shouldn't the front of her be covered in the blood as well?
