Continuity mistake: When Mathew Perry goes to Chicago to meet with the head Boss, Bruce Willis' wife comes to talk with him at the hotel. In the scene where he is brushing his teeth he picks up the mouthwash bottle and swigs some, then sets the bottle down on the counter. The camera cuts back to her, then back to Matthew Perry, and the mouthwash is gone. (00:32:50)

Continuity mistake: When Nick is having lunch with Jill (the assistant) the waitress takes his menu twice. Once while the camera is on Nick and once while the camera is on the waitress. The hand she's holding the menu in also changes from left to right. (00:06:05)

Continuity mistake: The undercover cop got hit at least five times in the chest in the shootout scene, yet there is not a single drop of blood on his white shirt when his body is laid down on the dentist chair. (01:08:55)

Continuity mistake: During the boat scene towards the end of the movie, depending on who is talking (Jimmy or Oz), the sun is out when one of them is being filmed, then it is cloudy when the other one is filmed. This happens throughout the entire scene. (01:28:10)

Revealing mistake: When one of the civil cops knocks at Jimmy's door it is obvious that someone behind it (from the movie crew) opens it. He doesn't knock hard enough to make the door slide open by itself. (01:47:45)

Revealing mistake: When Jill and Cynthia meet by the water towards the end, Jill produces her gun and is told to throw it in. As she's holding it you can see the base of the grip and there's no magazine in it - hardly the most effective weapon... (01:26:45)

Factual error: When Sophie is driving Oz to the airport, the airport sign indicates Dorval underneath. While Dorval is a real airport, the airport seen in the movie is at Mirabel, which is about 45 minutes north of Montreal and has been closed to international and domestic travel for several years.
