25th Hour

Factual error: Otisville Prison was not in the direction Monty's father was driving. He said he would take the Henry Hudson Parkway north and later continue on the Taconic Parkway. The Taconic runs due north toward Massachusetts on the east side of the Hudson River. Otisville is 30 miles west of the Hudson.


Visible crew/equipment: Monty and his father get into the car to go to the prison. When the father says "Them hooligans sure gave you a licking" a red mike appears at the top. (01:52:00)


Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie where Monty is looking at his old school photo, look closely at his beard. In the next scene when he's in the classroom talking to 'his old friend' his beard has a completely different shape.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Monty is about to leave for jail, Naturelle goes to get ice for him. She pulls open a drawer and grabs a quart size Ziplock bag and starts to fill it with ice. They cut to Monty and when they cut back to Naturelle she's filling a gallon sized Ziplock bag. (01:51:00)

Continuity mistake: The bite injury on Monty's neck only appears after the dog has been wrapped up and locked into the trunk. (00:02:50)


Continuity mistake: When Jacob and Frank eat in the Chinese restaurant the amount of food on the plate keeps changing. (00:55:15)


Audio problem: When the police officer sits down on Monty's couch he asks if he could sit down and Monty says "Be my guest," but his lips move about a second late. (00:28:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene with the V.I.P section at the dance club, Phillip Seymour Hoffman polishes off his champagne. Immediately after, Edward Norton goes to fill Hoffman's glass for a toast, but the glass is already half full. (01:11:50)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Naturelle waits for Monty on his doorstep she pets the dog before they go in. When the camera angle changes the dog has moved her other side. (00:22:45)


Continuity mistake: The untidy strands of hair over Mary's face disappear and reappear between shots when she gulps down the champagne in the club. (01:10:00)


Continuity mistake: When Monty complains about Naturelle's "annoying" way of licking her spoon it turns around in her mouth between shots. (00:24:40)


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jacob and Frank are in a restaurant together eating Chinese food, seated in a booth across the table from one another, Jacob has a tan jacket that is placed next to him, on the seat, to his right. Throughout the scene, as the shots cut back and forth between Frank and Jacob, the jacket next to Jacob repeatedly disappears and reappears. (00:53:20)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Monty and his father have a whiskey together in Mando's Bar, the shots they drink are more full than what the bartender pours for them. (02:02:55)

Uncle Nikolai: This is my advice to you: When you get there, figure it out who's who. Find the man nobody's protecting. A man without friends. And beat him until his eyes bleed. Let them think you are little bit crazy, but respectful, too. Respectful of the right men.

Question: Wasn't the plan that Monty's father thought about actually bad, at the end? I mean, even if Monty started a new life far from New York and his friends and family and never got recognized, his father would be arrested when coming back to New York. Suddenly him and his father disappear and later on his father gets back to New York, a little bit suspect no?

Answer: Monty's father was suggesting they go into hiding together. He was not suggesting that he would take Monty out west and return to New York himself.
