Revealing mistake: When the man shoots a target next to Jack's second cousin's head you can see a shot of him pointing his gun. It is clear there is a pole supporting the gun. (00:20:35)

Revealing mistake: There is an obvious shot splice of the elevator reaching the floor with Jack on it and one without him. The position of the elevator changes ever so slightly and you can tell the difference in the light coming from the elevator. (01:12:30)

Revealing mistake: When Arnie is talking to himself as actor Jack Slater, right when he says "You're the best look-alike I've seen" his eyes are looking slightly sideways, away from Jack, and not where they should. Obviously Arnie was talking to an empty place but missed.

Visible crew/equipment: When Charles Dance shoots his boss in the swimming pool, he starts talking to the camera about moving into the real world like Danny. Look at the glass mirror and windows behind him - you can see the film crew and cameras following him.
