Factual error: We hear Ace in the voiceover talking about Ichikawa, a guest at Tangiers, and Ace says, "About a year ago, he cleaned out a couple of casinos in the Cayman Islands." There have never been casinos in the Caymans. (00:19:10)

Continuity mistake: The man who is receiving a giant check for the Tangiers raises his right hand towards his waist, but in the immediate next angle, the hand is down and he is raising it again.

Continuity mistake: When Nicky Santoro meets the men in the desert, first he is getting out of the car with one person, but then he is in the next shot getting out of the second car which just pulled up, and he is getting out of the car with Frank Marino.

Continuity mistake: About an hour and a half through the movie there is a scene with Nikki on a black and white TV. On the TV they are showing a photo taken by police of Nikki talking to another man holding a toothpick to his mouth to cover his lip from lip readers. That scene takes place later in the movie. The police have not yet taken that photo, we see it happen later on. (01:32:49)

Character mistake: At their wedding reception when Ginger is talking to Lester on the phone he reminds her of when he watched her as a young "long legged colt." As a juvenile female horse she would have been a long legged filly.

Continuity mistake: When Sam is talking with Philip Greene after firing Ward, there is a shot of Sam facing the camera gesturing with his right hand not holding a cigarette, the a shot with his rear to the camera holding one, back to a shot facing the camera with empty hands again. (01:10:45)

Other mistake: When the man goes into the casino and takes a suitcase full of money to Kansas, he is parking in a supermarket. Later in the movie, after a plane lands on the golf course the same shot of the car in the supermarket is repeated. Check for the same parked cars: a blue VW beetle and a red car.

Audio problem: When Nicky is at the airport having his suitcase searched by Customs, he says "If you find any cash in there we'll whack it up with ya" but his lips don't move in unison with the sentence. (00:27:50)

Audio problem: When Pat Webb is reading aloud the newspaper article about Sam Rothstein, his lips don't match when he begins the sentence reading "the Midwest bookmaker", and also the audio sounds spliced in. (01:31:15)

Continuity mistake: When De Niro is by the pool, the way he holds his cigarette changes from vertical to horizontal depending on the angle.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joe Pesci tells Robert De Niro that he's moving to Vegas, both of their windows are cracked. De Niro's stays opened the same length until just before the scene ends, when it is opened nearly twice as much as before.

Factual error: About a half hour into the movie, Nicky goes into the sports book to collect. There is a cigarette machine behind him and the price of a pack of cigarettes is marked $2.50 In the 70's a pack of cigarettes was more like one dollar. (00:33:04 - 00:33:35)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Not only were vending machine prices for cigarettes higher to begin with, they simply jacked the prices up because they could. Think about how much a soda costs at a movie theater or airport.

I remember buying cigarettes out of a machine in the 80's - never needed more than 4 quarters.

There was a news report from 1988 still available online where a small pack of cigarettes from a vending machine was $3.50 (14 quarters). You must have found a super cheap machine selling very small packs and you weren't buying them in a betting parlor.

There is a huge difference between early 70's and 88.

That wasn't the point if my comment. Whoever said they never paid more than $1 in the 80's isn't remembering right or fibbing (which is why I didn't include it in my correction). The correction is still valid because the cigarettes weren't being sold in stores. Just like one time I had to paid almost $10 for a "$5 footlong" at an airport Subway or $3 for a vending machine soda at a theater when they were $1 at every other vending machine.

Continuity mistake: It is daylight when the car of Ace Rothstein explodes. However, it is night when he is being placed in the ambulance.

Other mistake: When Ace meets with Lester in the diner, Lester looks around at the guys guarding the exits. The camera pans around to show his perspective, looking first at the door directly behind him, and then the door to his right. Except the camera swings left for both shots, meaning Lester would've had to crane his neck around 270° to see the right-hand door while looking to the left.

Continuity mistake: The guy's whose head is put in a vice has a trail of blood running along the left side of his mouth which appears/disappears randomly between shots.
