Revealing mistake: In the scene where Chuck finds Bill in the morgue vault listening to the recording of Chuck telling him to shut up, take note of Bill's thumb on the rewind button of the tape recorder. You can hear the tape recorder rewinding to replay the words, "Chuck to remind Bill to SHUT UP" multiple times but Bill's thumb does not move at all until he turns the recorder off.

Factual error: I work for a television channel in 'daytime serial' production and I can assure you that no actor is going to secure a recurring speaking role in a soap opera unless a comprehensive insurance policy has been secured. (This applies to feature films, too.) This will inevitably involve a medical examination. I'm afraid Mr Dorsey's plans are going to become dreadfully unstuck the minute he drops his y-fronts in the doctor's surgery. (No, he can't find a compliant or bribeable doctor - the insurance company will always use their own people.).
Audio problem: In the scene where Jack Brown (Richard Pryor) is talking to Eric about "Earning a friend" there is a problem with the lip-sync when the camera changes to an overshoulder of Richard. His mouth is moving but the spoken text is different. This occurs repeatedly during that scene.Geert Kusters
Factual error: When Gary unscrews the top to the nozzle of the front tire of Karen's bike it automatically starts to make a loud hissing sound as if it's losing air rapidly. This wouldn't happen as although the tire would lose air over time it wouldn't make that loud hissing sound unless there was a rip or tear in the rubber. (00:21:35)Tobin OReilly
Visible crew/equipment: When Fenwick and Boogie are driving in the country watching the woman on horseback, the window on Fenwick's side of the car goes up and down several times in different shots. When the window is up, the cameraman can be clearly seen reflected in the glass.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Victoria is watching man eat a cream cake, the man has cream on his nose but in a different shot he has none.
