Continuity mistake: During Marty's drive to the bogus address, when he is done speaking with Monty, just as he says, "Wolf out!" he pulls the phone wire and the earpiece actually pops out of his ear, but in all of the following shots that earpiece is still in his ear. Since the super-glued earpiece is one of the main plot points, this is bizarre to say the least.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jason's parents arrive at the airport in Los Angeles his mother is wearing a brown jacket. It remains brown until the scene where Jason meets his parents at the set and his mother's jacket is maroon. While she has more than enough offscreen time to change jackets, she does not have a jacket to change into (they are driven straight there) and no reason to change the jacket.
Visible crew/equipment: In the first step of phase four, after Frank's limo has "stalled", when Jaleel drives off with Marty who shouts, "Sayonara, loser," in the next shot and two shots later the reflections of a crewmember (wearing shorts) running backwards, other crewmembers, the boom mic, camera and equipment are all visible on the limo's surface.
Visible crew/equipment: After Frank's limo "stalls" during the first step of phase four, when Frank tries to hug Marty just before Jaleel shows up, in the shot facing the back of the limo the reflection of the boom mic (with its fuzzy wind cover) is visible on the limo's surface.

Continuity mistake: At the premiere of Marty's failed movie, he is asking the president if he can explain his "breakthrough" on Big Fat Liar. The president raises his hand, and says "One chance, Wolf, that's all I'm giving you." It remains raised until two shots later (on Marty's line "strap on your seatbelt because you are about to be blown away,"), when it is suddenly resting at his side.

Continuity mistake: Jason and Kaylee arrive in LA on Thursday, and phase one begins Friday morning, but during 'phase one: surveillance day', when Jason and Kaylee are at the stunt demo, Jason looks at Marty's iPAQ PDA and the date reads Sunday, June 4th (stunt demo noted between 12:30 and 1:30pm). Yet, when Vince, the stunt coordinator, tells Marty that he's taking the next day off (day of 'phase two') to take his granddaughter to a birthday party, the clown invitation notes July 28th as the day of the party. Then, on Saturday 'phase two: the take down', when Jason is seated at the bus stop he looks at Marty's PDA and the date reads June 22nd, the day of the 'Whitaker and Fowl' premiere and party. Go figure...

Continuity mistake: When Marty is talking to the studio's president about his 'incredible breakthrough' about BFL, Monty has her head leaned up against a chair. Marty continues talking when the camera cuts to a close-up of Monty. With no time in between shots to move her head, her head moves about 6 inches away from the chair.
Continuity mistake: When Marty is done speaking to Monty while driving to the bogus address, after he pulls on the phone wire, in the shot from his car's interior we can see that the wire actually ripped, but after nearly colliding with "grandma" the phone wire is again intact.
Continuity mistake: During phase four, when Marty opens the passenger door of Jaleel's speeding car he wears a baseball cap, but in the next wideshot his head is bare as he hits the ground and rolls - the baseball cap is gone, it didn't fall off. After a close-up of Jaleel, it cuts back to Marty and the baseball cap is back on his head just before it falls off, as he continues to roll.
Continuity mistake: When Jason writes the paper and then staples it, there are neat/short bits of paper at the side edge, where the pages were torn from the notebook (also visible after he slams into Marty's limo). Then, when Marty finds the paper, the entire left side edges are filled with much longer extra bits of paper.

Other mistake: Towards the beginning of the movie, directly after Jason's parents leave the house, Jason's sister's boyfriend drives up in an SUV to pick her up (the music in his SUV is blaring). The window on the passenger's side door is open. When Jason's sister opens the passenger's side door to the SUV, the already blaring music becomes louder, as if much more sound is escaping the vehicle. When she shuts the door after entering the vehicle, the music becomes quieter again.
Continuity mistake: When Marty enters the home of the birthday party, there is a large area rug lying directly in front of the set of double French doors. In following shots, this large rug has moved closer to the front door (before all the kids jump on him) - note the table beside the French doors.
Continuity mistake: When Marty Wolf pulls up behind "the Masher", an old lady hits Wolf's car and pushes it into the Masher truck. The old lady drives off while insulting Marty. The Masher drives around to crush Marty's car. When it cuts to Marty watching the Masher drive towards him, you see the old lady's car behind his again.
Continuity mistake: When Marty is up on the roof with Jason after being busted as a liar, he looks down at Marcus Duncan standing in front of eight live feed monitors, but in Duncan's close-up there are fourteen monitors. The entire top row of monitors is gone in the wideshots.
Continuity mistake: After Marty leaves the birthday party and asks Monty to reschedule with Marcus Duncan, when his car's radio starts blaring Marty's wearing his seatbelt in the shot facing him, but in the next side shot as he tries to turn off the radio Marty's seatbelt is instantly off.
