Continuity mistake: In the first scene with De Niro's first wife as Pesci arrives, he is improvising as he argues with her and he says "you call those carrots" and she says "you ate them didn't you". He replies "I got no choice". But he had flipped over the table in the prior scene as she was serving the carrots so he never even tasted them.
Continuity mistake: Early in the film there is a scene, clearly an improvisation, where De Niro's character is courting his future wife. They are sitting across from each other at a small dining table in an apartment. Apparently the director has told De Niro nothing more than "try to get her to sit on your lap", which is accomplished so quickly and easily that he looks at the camera, obviously expecting to hear "cut!" or get some further suggestion. Nothing happens, and De Niro, momentarily at a loss, tries to come up with more action, a kiss, or something. He quickly succeeds at this as well, and looks at the camera again! The scene still is not cut, and continues to unravel.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Jake fights in Cleveland, in one shot right before he punches you can see his opponent's mouthpiece is taped to his head so it will fall off making it look like it came out of his mouth. In the next shot he has his mouthpiece back in his mouth.
