Continuity mistake: Close to the end when Edward Norton runs up to the front of the empty building and Brad Pitt appears, he tries to break the glass door by pushing a bench into the door, but it doesn't work. He doesn't move the bench and he then shoots at the glass and breaks it. When it shows him walking through the broken door, the bench has disappeared.

Revealing mistake: When Brad Pitt throws Edward Norton down the stairs, there's a shot close to the bottom of the stairs in which you can see the stunt-man's face.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the film, when the narrator and Tyler are fighting in the basement, Tyler slams the narrator's head into the wall by the van. For a split second, before the shot changes, the 'concrete' wall visibly buckles inwards.

Continuity mistake: When the Narrator and Bob are crying together at the support group, Bob is much taller than the Narrator. However, when the two meet in front of Marla's place and Bob tells the Narrator that he is a member of Fight Club, the Narrator is taller than Bob. Edward Norton mentions this on the commentary. He is actually taller than Meat Loaf, but Bob is supposed to be taller than the Narrator. It seems they didn't remember to make him taller in every scene though.

Revealing mistake: Before the final fight scene between Tyler and the narrator, Edward Norton points a gun at Tyler telling him to step away from the van. Tyler breaks the key and throws it away. When this shot is seen through the security footage, then in the far left security computer screen we can see that there is already a gun shot hole in the back window of the van, and there is also some random guy walking in the top left corner of the screen.

Visible crew/equipment: During the police interrogation The Narrator is pinned to the table, after he gets the gun and rolls back off the table you can easily see the power pack attached to his back/underpants during the roll.

Jack Vaughan

Revealing mistake: When members of Fight Club are starting fights, watch VERY closely when the guy with the hose sprays the vicar - you can see the camera wobble slightly (looking on the left of the screen at the top of the fence is a good reference point). This happened because the cameraman started to laugh.

Continuity mistake: In the scene towards the end where The Narrator is trying to break into the building, he smashes the bench into the door and fails to break the glass. He then shoots the glass with the pistol and it jams. The camera cuts to the next shot and the pistol is no longer jammed.

Visible crew/equipment: In the sequence where The Narrator is explaining about Tyler's projectionist job, a boom mike is visible at the upper left hand side of the screen, before Tyler explains about the cigarette burns.

Continuity mistake: Check out the sweat stain around the collar of Ed Norton's t-shirt in the scene towards the end of the film where he is being interrogated by police. It keeps getting bigger and smaller from shot to shot.

Revealing mistake: When the "waiters" leave the restaurant after assaulting the old police man you can see that Meat Loaf's pants fall down revealing the wrinkled fat suit he is wearing underneath.

Jack Vaughan

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the bar right after Edward Norton's apartment blows up, watch the men playing pool behind him. Towards the end of his conversation with Pitt, there is a continuity error. One of the men is bent over getting ready to take a shot. A mere second later, he's on the other side of the table and his opponent is finishing his own shot.

Continuity mistake: When Ed Norton is blackmailing his boss the thermostat changes from white to black in some of the shots. The chair moves a bit to the left too.

Continuity mistake: When Jack asks Tyler if he can stay at his place, there is a glass bottle on the payphone to the left. When the shot changes from the far shot to the close shot, the bottle is further to the right. It's back to the left when the far shot comes up again.

Knever

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie in the underground car park, Brad Pitt pushes Edward Norton into the wingmirror of a van. The mirror flips back against the van and stays there. A couple of shots later we see Brad Pitt check his face in the mirror, which is at a different angle to what it was before.

Revealing mistake: Towards the beginning when Edward Norton is ordering out of the catalog, he is walking into his kitchen. Look at his shadow to his left, it doesn't change distances indicating a blue or green screen.

Factual error: In the scene where Marla Singer is talking on the phone with Jack, as she is saying "I've got a stomach full of Xanax... I took what was left of a bottle... might've been too much." The camera zooms in on the bottle, lying on its side. You can read most of the label except the first letter: "...anax - 300mg". Xanax only comes in 4 dosages - .25mg, .5mg, 1mg and 2mg. Obviously 300mg in a single pill would be a pretty fatal dosage, even if she only took one such pill.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Brad Pitt is fighting Edward Norton in a garage, he takes off his jacket and he is wearing a shirt under it. Between shots he goes from wearing a shirt to not wearing a shirt and to wearing a shirt again.

Continuity mistake: When Tyler gets beaten up by Lou, his mouth is bleeding after the first punch. After maybe two punches Tyler jokingly claims to "get it", then he says he "lost it". Right then the blood is no longer there.

Continuity mistake: When they are preparing to confront the City Councilman, Brad Pitt's character pulls him in to the bathroom. If you really look at the locks on the door you see that as he is pulling him in there is no deadbolt lock, but when the Councilman is halfway in through the mirror you can see that the same door has a deadbolt lock.

Trivia

In the very last scene, a few frames show a picture of a man's penis, just as he refers to in the movie. It is very obvious, no freeze-framing is necessary.
