9 mistakes

Continuity mistake: When the American guy races against the German's car, the cars in the background have no continuity between the inside and the outside shots for most of the time.

Other mistake: In the beginning of the movie, the radio announcer says it is 74 degrees with a high of 89 degrees expected. The guy directing the oil truck breath is visible and is wearing a winter coat, not very likely at that temperature. People walking the streets are too heavily dressed also.

Continuity mistake: When the cars crash into the oil truck, the body in the car on the far right keeps changing: Head down against the steering wheel (as we later see it in a close-up), head missing and head up and stiff.

Continuity mistake: When Henry Levy is having his hand treated, the size of the cigarette he is smoking changes, getting larger as the shot leaves him then returns.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the German and Jewish drivers are arguing, there is a corner establishment visible in the background with a sign that reads "wash." In certain shots, a "going out of business" sign is visible in the storefront, while in other shots, with close-ups of two passers-by observing the argument, the same corner establishment is visible without the "going out of business" sign.

Continuity mistake: When Levy arrives at Professor Biesenthal's seminar he sits down placing his jacket on his lap. When asked about his thesis, his seating arrangement changes. The jacket appears folded on the chair to his right and the pencil he holds, disappears.

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie the German guy's car stalls... In the background you can see a bus and a tan car which belongs to the Jewish guy. A few seconds later you see the Jewish guy's tan car in the mechanics shop. About 1 minute later you see the tan car and the bus in the background once again as the Jewish guy meets with the German.

Revealing mistake: When Babe is hiding in the bathroom and his attackers are prising the door off the hinges, you can see the wall move as well as the door, so showing that it's a set rather than an apartment.

Other mistake: In the restaurant scene with Scylla (Doc), Babe and Elsa, Scylla pontificates, briefly, about wine and then orders a Chablis Grand Cru (which you don't need to be a wine buff to know is a classic white wine). However, the wine they are drinking, a few minutes later, is a red.
