Continuity mistake: When Marlon stocks the vending machine, the camera (inside the back of the machine) shows him stocking the 1st row with brown-wrapper candy bars. He starts stocking the 2nd row with yellow-wrapper bars; Truman interrupts him for a minute (during which Marlon doesn't touch the bars at all). When Marlon continues, the yellow bars have changed to something darker (it's not just a different camera view; even barcodes are different). After another brief interruption, Marlon continues again, and the yellow bars are back. (00:35:00)
Continuity mistake: When Truman is going mental, with his wife in his car and they are about to go around the circle loads of times, it shows a shot of the car from the back. If you look at his wife's seatbelt it is on. However, a couple of seconds later it has another rear shot of the car and you can see the wife putting on her seatbelt again, when she already had it on. (00:48:00)
Visible crew/equipment: When Truman takes his high school sweetheart to the beach, her "father" comes to get her. There is a shot through the father's button cam showing Truman backing away. Look at Truman's shirt and you will see not one but two human shadows. One is the father and the other is the "button" cameraman. (00:25:30)
Revealing mistake: When Truman is first discovered escaping on the boat, they go to a camera shot of his face. If you look at the water, the boat is not moving at all. They use a similar shot later in the scene after the storm. You can also tell the background is the same as the large wall that Truman crashes his boat into. (01:19:05 - 01:25:25)
Continuity mistake: At the end, when Truman is supposedly looking into the sun, there is a shadow on one side of his face, indicating that the light source for that shot is to his side. (01:32:15)
Continuity mistake: In the scene just before Truman sees his dad as a homeless man, there is a woman in a white sweater holding a shopping bag in her right hand. When Truman turns, the bag switches to her left. (00:15:05)
Continuity mistake: When the fallen lamp has settled, the glass and parts of the housing are in the sunlight, and the light is in the shadow, with the camera looking into the side of the shadow. As Truman comes out to investigate, the light has been turned to a new direction, the pieces of the housing are missing, and the glass is splayed out a lot more than it originally was.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: In the scene where a lamp fell from the sky in front of Truman, the damage caused to it seemed somewhat insubstantial, bearing in mind the height from which it surely must have fallen in order for it not to be visible from the ground in the first place. (00:03:15)
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene at the travel agents when Truman is trying to book a flight to Fiji the woman asks 'when would you like to leave?', Truman holds up his suitcase and says 'today'. When he holds up his suitcase you can see the boom mic reflected on his suitcase. (00:41:25)
Continuity mistake: Just before Truman turns around to see his dad as a homeless man, there is a woman in a white sweater behind him. When Truman turns, the woman is in front of him. (00:15:05)
Continuity mistake: In the flight centre, after Truman taps his luggage, he puts both his arms under his chin. Then the camera changes shot to just beside his elbow, and his fist is sticking out behind his elbow. Just a shot ago it was below his chin.
