Continuity mistake: In the very beginning Nicolas Cage is picking up his daughter. You see him standing outside his black Cadillac as she walks up. As they drive away we get an overhead view of the car driving away. If you look at the emblem on the trunk you can see it's an Infinity. The next time we see his car and throughout the rest of the movie it is the black Cadillac again. (00:01:15 - 00:01:55)
Continuity mistake: When Blair asks Mitch "why aren't you answering me?" he says he got a weird message from Laura Barns. Blair replies "that's not funny" and Mitch replies "I'm serious." Then Blair gets a message from Laura, and when she switches back to Mitch's conversation, the last two entries, "that's not funny" and "I'm serious" have disappeared. (00:10:50 - 00:12:30)Mike Walker
Continuity mistake: Some scenes were shot after Rosamund Pike had gained some weight, following the plot of the book correctly. However, they were edited together very badly, so that the extra pounds (most visible on her face) come and go several times during the montage showing what she did during the first two days of her "kidnapping." Pasty face with puffy cheeks, and sleek face with taut skin over jutting cheekbones switch back and forth in what amounts to a matter of hours in the film's plot.
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie, when Alan comes out to Joan, there are a number of shots over his right shoulder. On the back of his jacket is a piece of lint that appears and disappears from shot to shot.
Continuity mistake: When he visits his friend in the hospital, he passes room 6 in the first angle, which he hasn't yet passed in the second angle. (00:22:10)
Continuity mistake: When Jane is in the night school, the position of knife and fork on the plate changes between shots. Both on one side (close up) or one on each side (long shot).
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the van jumps into the water and is going to explode with Aleksandr still inside. The van was likely jumped only 20m from the cliff (above a building actually?), but in the next shot, it shows that the car explodes 100m from the cliff, and there's no building beside the river.
