Continuity mistake: In the opening scene when The Dude's head is repeatedly shoved in the toilet, almost all of the water is pushed out of the bowl and it's nearly empty. Soon the bowl is once again full, even though the toilet had not been flushed, which is the only way the bowl is normally refilled.
Trivia: This isn't really a mistake, just something to note - throughout the whole movie the Dude is not seen bowling once. Also, every time you see Donnie (Steve Buscemi) bowl, he gets a strike, except for the last bowling scene, he does not get a strike, and he dies of a heart attack a few minutes after this.
