Continuity mistake: When we first see Finkle's room, it's an inside shot and it's completely dark. But when we see the rest of the room, there is a "shrine" to Marino, with candles already lit. (00:49:00)
Continuity mistake: When he is in the aquarium tank (just after he says "I've got to, mister!"), he leans down with his glasses in his left hand. He's supporting his weight on his hands so can't move them, but in the next shot from behind his left hand's flat on the ground with no glasses in sight. (00:16:10)
Continuity mistake: When Ace enters the bathroom at Camp's mansion, a towel falls to the floor from the door. However, when he exits the bathroom soaking wet, there is a closeup of his shoes and the floor and the towel is gone.
Continuity mistake: When Ace looks through Finkle's stuff he holds up two knitted coasters. They change hands between the two shots.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ace is trying to figure out the Finkle/Einhorn connection there is, what looks like, an air horn on the far end of the table to the right of the dog. A shot or two later when it shows the dog's hair around the picture of Finkle you can see the end of the horn laying right next to the dog on his left side.(This is visible in the screen shot already on the site that shows the dogs hair position changing.).Tiffany
Continuity mistake: When Ace is dressed as a HDS delivery man, he starts playing soccer with the package he is carrying. After that you can see that the box is open at the top. When he is at the door, you can see that someone has put new tape on it to close it again.
Continuity mistake: When the people take the dolphin and put it in the truck near the beginning, they close the truck door and the door is red. When it shows the truck driving away, the door is white. (00:07:15)
Continuity mistake: When the man is sitting by a chess board and Ace is talking, as the camera direction moves between characters the chess pieces on the board suddenly disappear and don't return.
Trivia: When Ace enters the club to meet the guy with long blond hair and glasses, the song playing is "Hammer Smashed Face" by death metal band Cannibal Corpse. Jim Carrey is a fan of Cannibal Corpse and insisted they appear in the movie since it takes place in Florida, the "capital" of death metal.
