Visible crew/equipment: In the scene after the huge fight with the Buddists, Jack Nicholson speeds off in his Land Rover and cuts into traffic to get away from the monastary. If you look three cars back there is a state trooper weaving through both lanes to make sure the set is closed. He stays visible throughout the scene.
Factual error: When Dave is at the Yankee game and he is telling Linda he wants to marry her from the field, it is impossible for his voice to ring throughout the whole stadium without a microphone (even though it echoes as if he were using one.). Similarly, he wouldn't have been able to hear Linda when she shouts "I'm over here."
01:26:30 - 01:27:45
Continuity mistake: After the fury fighters' meeting with John McEnroe Dave asks Buddy to talk to him in private. The go into the multi-purpose hall of the community center which has a stage on one side. In all wide shots and one close-up we see them talking in front of the stage, in all other close-ups in front of an inscription on the wall which is about 20 meters away.
Continuity mistake: After their encounter with the monks, Buddy and Dave speed off and come out onto a road. The first shot sees the whole car come onto the road, where there is a double unbroken line in the middle of it. The shot changes to Buddy and Dave in the car. Watch through the back windshield. The double unbroken line has turned into a single, broken line.
Factual error: After the Yankee game when Adam Sandler and Marisa Tomei are going home via the subway, they show Yankee Stadium in the background and they are standing on the platform further away from the stadium. If they live in Brooklyn, they should be on the platform closer to the stadium as that is the one that is south bound towards Manhattan and Brooklyn. The one they are on goes north. Why would they be going north away from home at that hour?
Factual error: When Dave and Buddy get to Boston, Dave is using his cell phone, mentioning that they didn't have to take a five-hour trip to Boston just to find out that Buddy's mom was getting a Jelly Bean removed from her nose. Problem is, he's calling from the ramp staircase of Alfred Lerner Hall at Columbia University, which is in New York City, not Boston.
Continuity mistake: In the night after the first fury fighters' meeting Dave and Chuck sit in a bar. When Dave says that he wants to go back Chuck's cigarette is in his mouth. When the camera angle changes it's in his hand. A little later, when Chuck memorizes the chicks in the war frying his banana the hand with the cigarette changes from hanging down to pointing up in mid-sentence.
Continuity mistake: When Buddy and Dave drive to work Buddy pulls the brake on the bridge. Through the rear window you see cars skidding and jamming up right behind them. Then comes an areal shot where there are just two cars braking at a distance, but when it cuts back to the view from the front the jam is back.
