Continuity mistake: When Elliot's the basketball player, when he scores the slam-dunk and breaks the headboard, he breaks the headboard after the slam as he bounces/hangs off the headboard. But in the replay he breaks the headboard as he makes the slam and then bounces/hangs off the headboard. (00:49:10)
Continuity mistake: At the very start of the film when Elliot is holding the door open for the people and they start to rush in at a very high speed, if you look closely about halfway through you will see the same people going in like in the first half of it (Especially look for a woman in a light blue suit). The clip is just being replayed.
Continuity mistake: Elliot is given a contract in the Devil's office. In one shot the contract is hanging off of the edge of the table. But a couple shots later, when the Devil picks up an apple and walks by the table, the contract is further onto the table, in a different position. (00:21:20)Hamster
Continuity mistake: When Elliot refuses to make his last wish, the Devil extends her hand fully forward to send him to hell. In the next shot from behind her, her hand is raised.
Continuity mistake: When Elliot wakes up as the Colombian drug dealer he looks over at Allison then at the wedding band on his hand. Then when he walks over to the mirror the wedding band is gone.
Continuity mistake: When Elliot and The Devil (Liz Hurley) are in Alison's bedroom, Liz tells Elliot that Alison is in the shower. Elliot goes to take a look, but notice the bed in the middle of the room. We see a shot of him and the bed, a shot of Liz then a shot of Elliot walking to the bathroom. So, in reality, Elliot walked through the bed to get to the bathroom, but it is back in the next shot.
Continuity mistake: When Elliot is in the Devil's office, the Devil goes over to a side cabinet, and picks up an apple. Next to the apples is a vase of roses. The position of the roses changes from when the Devil goes to pick up the apple, to the next shot, when she walks over to Elliot. (00:21:40)Hamster
Continuity mistake: When Elliot is the Colombian drug dealer and is having an argument with his wife, she throws a glass of some liquid at him but it hits the door and the liquid splashes across the door. She then throws something else at him which also hits the door, but the door is now completely dry.
Continuity mistake: In Elliot's basketball player wish after the game you can see the sweat/water dripping on his face only when the camera is on him. When the camera focuses off him it stops only to magically appear when he starts speaking.
Continuity mistake: The Devil gives Elliot a pager and she tells him that if he wants to get out of his wish he should dial "666". In some wishes he presses the "6" three times and is transported out, in others he presses the "6" three times and then presses another button and is transported out and in the sensitive guy wish he presses the "6" four times.
