Rounders

Other mistake: When Mike loses his bankroll to KGB, he's wearing sweaters/jackets, so it's obviously cold out. 9 months later, he is driving a truck for Knish and wearing cold weather attire. It appears to be a month or so before the WSOP, which at the time was held in late April through May, and at the Judge's game, they indicate he may be an intern for one of them during the summer. So at this time it has to be March/April. 9 months earlier would be July/August, no reason to be wearing winter clothes.

Other mistake: Mike sits 300/600 limit poker and he wins one pot. The math doesn't add up to 30k.

Matt Lombardo

Revealing mistake: The movie is set in New York, but in the final scene you can see a sticker on the door of the law school that says "Smoking in this building" where the bottom reads "State University of New Jersey".

Trivia: Johnny Chan was only supposed to be a technical advisor for the writers of the film, but his daughter wanted to meet Matt Damon so they went to the set, and since he was there the writers wrote the casino scene and put Chan in it, that's how he got in the movie.
