Visible crew/equipment: When Catherine Keener is being chased by Cameron Diaz, crawling through the cat flap and into the bus, a hand pokes through the flap and helps her through. (01:34:45)

Continuity mistake: Towards the end after Malkovich gets off the phone with Lester, who threatens him, he has hair over his eyes. In the shot through his eyes however there is no hair seen. When it shows his face again there is still hair.

More quotes from Being John Malkovich

Question: When I originally saw the film at the Midway Theater in Forest Hills, New York there were so many errors, I thought they were part of the movie. There was shaky cameras, boom mics shown in the frame, extras walking around, and lighting devices in frame. I’m not talking once or twice, it was throughout. I ended up leaving. Has anyone ever heard of this?
