Corrected entry: When the house blows up and Dewey, Gale and Jennifer jump off the balcony, we find that Gale is near the car, the killer jumps up behind her and Dewy takes a shot at him with a gun and it is obvious that the killer purposely slams himself against the car window to make the gun look powerful.
Corrected entry: When Martha Meeks sees Sidney outside the door in Sunrise Studios, Detective Kincaids partner and a black officer runs up to her, thinking that she is a criminal, and next time you see them two the black officer is not there, but a different person.
Corrected entry: When the killer calls Syd at the police station and tells her that he has Gail and Dewey, she asks, "How do I know those are their real voices?" (Well, the killer finishes the sentence.) But Gail had just found out that the killer had a voice changer with all their voices. So if Gail had not spoken to Sydney before the killer called at the police station, how does Sydney know to ask about whether those are Gail and Deweys real voices?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Dewey and the killer are fighting near the basement door, which is not a swinging door, they both fly through the door (hitting it forward), but when it shows them falling down the stairway, the door is flying backwards.
Corrected entry: When the vest is hanging up the letters (LAPD) are across the upper part. When Sidney shows the vest to her half brother, the letters are at the bottom of the vest.
Corrected entry: In the very beginning of the movie at nighttime, as the helicopter is flying over the "HOLLYWOOD" sign, it shines a searchlight on it, lighting up the letters. The letters are cloaked in darkness. The "HOLLYWOOD" sign is lighted with surface-mounted spotlights at night. The letters should never have been dark.
Corrected entry: After the actor is blown up by the fire in Jennifer's house, and after Dewey shoots the killer a couple times, Dewey finds another picture of Mrs. Prescott. The lines written in bold black on the back clearly show that there are many words. When Dewey looks at it, there is only "I Killed Her." To see it, make sure to look just when Dewey picks it up.
Corrected entry: Near the end, Sidney stabs Roman with a knife she picked up off the bar. Then she jumps over the bar and lands on the ground. She picks up Roman's knife, but when she stabs Roman in the chest, it's the bar knife again.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the final scene where Sydney tries to escape from the disguised murderer she runs into the library. In this room Sydney is looking for the hidden entrance behind the bookshelves. As she recognises a bright light underneath one of these shelves she knows which door to open. As she finally enters that room the bright light suddenly disappeared. The room is as dark as a coal chamber.
Corrected entry: At Roman's birthday party, Roman and Jennifer go off ALONE to find a missing room and end up in the basement. Later, Gale is looking for Roman and goes straight to the basement. She calls his name and gets no answer, but is adamant that he is in the basement and continues down to find him. Why would she think he was down there if she had no idea where he went?
Corrected entry: Maybe I'm just being silly, but when Cotton is going through his house looking for Christine, he goes into the bathroom and slides the shower door open. One question, and one question only: it's a glass door, so why does he open it in the first place?
Corrected entry: In the opening scene, when the killer enters Cotton's girlfriend's bathroom, he's no more than 3 feet away from the shower door and is talking quite loudly to Cotton on the phone, yet Christine is oblivious to him.
Corrected entry: In the bathroom scene with Sidney, if they were so worried about her safety they should have sent bodyguards in with her.
Corrected entry: When Gale and Dewey are pulling books off the shelf a book falls right in Gale's face. You can see the very surprised look on her face - it wasn't meant to happen.
Corrected entry: When Cotton's girlfriend is in the shower, and she gets out her hair is completely dry and the rest of her is soaked.
Corrected entry: Why is the killer so surprised when Syd reveals she was wearing a bullet-proof vest when he'd been wearing one also?
Corrected entry: When Jennifer gets killed, it looks like as Roman stabs her, the two kinda press against the glass covering the closet. As Dewey shoots the glass, Jennifer falls through the glass, yet the killer is nowhere to be seen. It looks like to the right, there is a wall there, preventing him from running in that direction, yet if he ran the other way, he would have ran right in full view of Dewey and Gale. Instead, he's just magically disappeared.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie when the killer confronts Sidney, she shoots him 6 times leaving a crescent of bullet holes in his costume, but the next time we see him the holes are gone. Later, when he reveals himself he shows Sidney his Kevlar vest and the bullet holes are back.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the cast are hanging out in Jennifer's house with Gale and Dewey, the door opens by itself and Dewey points his gun out the door. When he calls out the names of the actors, watch the wall behind him and Gale, you can see a shadow of a cast/crew member on the wall.
Corrected entry: When the killer and Syd (or the reporter lady, I forgot) are in the basement and Syd is talking with Dewey on the phone, she tells him to come in and he tries, but the door's locked. But after a while he tries again and opens it easily.
Corrected entry: In the scene where all the characters are together in the house and they smell gas, the power goes out, but the fax machine is working pretty well.
Corrected entry: The "Movie Gale" learns that she gets killed next, based on the idea that the killer is going in the order of how they get killed in the script. That means that Gale Weathers dies in Stab 3. But when the "Movie Gale" gets killed behind the 2-way mirrors, you can hear her say that she is the killer in Stab 3.
Corrected entry: When Dewey is shooting at the one-way mirror he fires seven shots form a revolver (they only hold six) then he fires again without reloading and is surprised to find it empty.
Corrected entry: When Cotton is driving home to save his girlfriend he passes an advertising poster, on which is written, that Cotton's own TV show "100% Cotton" is shown weekdays at 3.30 p.m.on television. But when he has reached his house you can see the TV screen on which Cotton's show is on, although it's definitely too late for 3.30 p.m.(It's dark outside, maybe 8 or 9 o'clock.)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Sidney is in her old house on the set, and she opens the door and almost falls out, then she looks down there is no bed down there, then the killer comes running in the door and she throws him down and then all of a sudden there's a bed...
Corrected entry: I think a few of the characters seem to have forgotten the 2nd victim in the opening scene. References are made to "Two dead people" when there were three and "three and a bodyguard" when there were five dead at that point.
Corrected entry: When everybody is at Jennifer's house and the killer starts sending them faxes, the power is cut and everyone runs outside. But a few seconds later, when one of the guys runs back in, the fax machine is still going, even with the power out.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film (after we've established that the killer is wearing a bullet-proof vest) why does Sidney bother to stab him in the chest? It's not as though she's forgotten because she then tells Dewey to shoot him in the head!
