The Color of Money

Factual error: Cruise is breaking and if you watch the eight ball after the break it's following the 5 into a pocket at the end of the table closest to Tom. Now the 8 ball didn't necessarily go in because they focus on the one ball, but in the next frame shot, there's no way it could be at the opposite end of the table like they show. (00:29:20)

Factual error: While getting hustled by Amos, Fast Eddie wins a game on a 6-9 kick combination. But, the 3-ball is on the table near it. Can't play the 6-ball if a lower numbered ball is on the table in the game of 9-ball. (01:19:00)

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the tournament, when we see all the platters break at the same time (wide shot showing all tables), we see Eddie's table is second from the left and three tables up. Notice the referee one table behind Eddie. In the close shot after the break, we now see that the referee, who was standing still in the wide shot, is now a table further down.
