Visible crew/equipment: When Hank tells his father that he quit his job a crew member is visible through the window throughout the whole scene. Neither the location of the house nor the plot allow that this is an extra just placed there for no reason. (00:47:05)

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of film, Peter Boyle's character opens a newspaper, and on the front page is a story about a death row inmate who is scheduled to die "tonight." However, he does not die "tonight," but rather the following night. On the evening of the day on which the erroneous newspaper headline appears, the prison guards gather at a local bar. The next day, the prisoner is taken to a special cell to await his execution, which occurs TWO nights after the newspaper headline said he was to be executed. (00:08:15)
