Continuity mistake: In the gas station scene after Ellen learns that Phil has drowned, she is so distraught she forgets to put the gas cap on and we can see it on the roof of her car as she drives away. But when she arrives at the police station we can see that the gas cap is on. (01:10:20)

Revealing mistake: When the guy with the hand missing is playing his guitar, you can see his actual wrist bending underneath the fake arm that covers it.

Other mistake: At the beginning, the police say, "Mona Deary is dead." But how do they know that? The car isn't hers, it's her son's, and it's in the water. It's only when the car has been dragged out of the water that they can see the true picture.


Continuity mistake: After Rash questions Phil about the night prior to the accident, it cuts to Bobby loading bags onto the pickup, and when Bobby spots Rash driving toward him the bag on Bobby's shoulder is white side up, but next shot it's flipped over to the red side up. (00:32:05)

Continuity mistake: When Lucinda assures Rash that she'll know if the car had been tampered with, it cuts to the diner just as Rona walks toward the punch clock, and the actor's tape mark can be seen on the floor behind Rona, where the other waitress had been standing. (00:14:40)

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Mona tries to open her car door with the keys, her handbag strap hangs from her wrist area, but in the next shot Mona's hands are still busy with the car lock yet the handbag strap now hangs over her shoulder.
