Other mistake: In the scenes after Giovanni Ribisi is arrested, his looks are constantly changing. In scenes where he is talking to Vin Disel his face is very fat. When he walks by Abby's desk he is thin again. If you get Boiler Room on DVD you'll see an original ending where Ribisi is thin all the way through the end of the movie; Because Giovanni was preparing for a film that required him to gain 30 something pounds, the scenes that needed to be reshot for a different ending are very defined.
Other mistake: At the beginning of the third chapter ("El Chivo y Maru"), when the Comandante and Gustavo are driving to see Chivo, the Comandante says to Gustavo, "Make a right here."; however, Gustavo ignores him and never makes a right. He just keeps going straight.
Other mistake: In the fight scene outside Trish's apartment, Jet Li kicks Maurice so he gets a scar on the right side on his lip. Later in the American football sequence you can at one shot see that he has the scar on his left side of the lip and in another shot it's completely gone.
Other mistake: In the Sammy/Lenny shot in the Institution, before the switch the orderly on the left heads toward the medical files with his arm outstretched and the nurse walks behind Sammy. Just as the person passes the camera the film jerks and the two men at the table, visible on the left, have a shaking motion. After the switch, the orderly and the nurse are both further back.

Other mistake: When Bullet-Tooth Tony goes to 'open the dog' in order to get the diamond out, and then Vinny confesses that he has it, the dog starts to go crazy and in one scene proceeds to pull Sol's jacket off. If you look at Bullet-Tooth Tony's face, he is laughing at how crazy the dog is (this would have been a real-life giggle because the character is quite serious at that moment in the film).
Other mistake: The radio station had no power or telephone lines anywhere in the vicinity, and the lines would not have been buried in 1937. A telephone is seen on the wall inside the building, yet it couldn't have been connected to anything. There wasn't a generator to power the radio transmitter, because it would have had an exhaust pipe through the roof, nor was there any adjacent building to house a generator.
Other mistake: When Honey Whitlock throws a grenade during the shoot at the Baltimore Film Commission meeting, you see the explosion before the grenade actually falls all the way behind the wall that the explosion supposedly comes from. I think the pyrotechnics guys let the explosion off a little early.
Other mistake: When Memphis and Kip are hiding from Johnny B and his crew in the cafe following the ambush, Memphis devises a plan to make good an escape. He sends Kip out to use the tow cable on the heavy tow rig to destroy Johnny B's Mercedes. First angle shows a cable wrapped around a rear A-arm of the vehicle and the hook connected to the cable, the next shows a hook directly attached to the front axle, which is the one that gets torn from the Mercedes when the tow rig pulls away. Additionally, a different cabling rig and loose cabling used in the stunt are strewn behind the car. So even if Kip somehow made 2 connections without being seen or heard, the rear rig is different than the one shown in the first shot. (00:51:00 - 00:53:00)
Other mistake: When the airbags are deployed on the "indestructible" Peugeot they stay inflated, making it difficult to get the driver out of the car. Comedic effect aside, real airbags do not deploy when the vehicle is stationary or hit by a hand on the roof and also begin to deflate immediately after deployment due to the gasses cooling and leaking out of the vent(s) in the bag. A previous correction speculating about modified airbags cannot be proved and is irrelevant as they are a legal safety feature of the vehicle and cannot be modified.Oliver Hunter
Other mistake: When they've duct taped the cop to the x-ray machine to check the outcome of the procedures Oz did on his teeth, there is no film in his mouth as the machine takes the x-ray. (01:17:20)
