Continuity mistake: In the very last scene in New Zealand when Jordan is giving a motivational speech, he approaches his first target in the audience and says 'Sell me this pen.' As he does so, he holds out a pen in his right hand. When we cut to the shot to the person's face, we see that the pen is in Jordan's left hand; this goes on and on with every person.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Teresa is yelling and hitting Jordan after pulling him out of the limo, we see the door being closed 3 times. She starts to close the door. In the next shot she slips, and the door is fully open again. In the following shot she closes the door completely, and in the shot following that, she's closing the door once again. (01:00:25)Tshepo
Factual error: When Jordan tries to escape with his daughter in the Mercedes, he pulls the parking brake with his hand (a hand-type parking brake) to stop the car, but that car (Mercedes Benz SL Class R129) is only available with a foot-type parking brake, making his action impossible.

Audio problem: Jordan and Donnie are talking about Jordan's money. Jordan then says "technically 72 thousand last month. Something like that." When he says "something like that", the camera is very close to Jordan's head with Donnie in the background. You hear the words "something like that", but Jordan's mouth is not moving, it is closed.

Continuity mistake: When Jordan goes to lunch with Mark, Mark is wiping his nose with a napkin as the waiter talks to him in the wide shot. As the waiter says the next word, they cut to a close-up of Mark, but the hand is missing the napkin and is in a completely different position reaching into his suit pocket. (00:08:25)
Trivia: The humming chant Matthew McConaughey does and Leonardo DiCaprio adopts is actually something McConaughey does before scenes to relax himself and clear his head. He did it before shooting the scene with DiCaprio in the restaurant, and after a few takes DiCaprio suggested that it was put in the scene, so it stayed.Jon Sandys
