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.
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.
Continuity mistake: After his first court case Dave goes to the Community Center where Buddy does anger treatment. When he picks up one of Buddy's books from a table there are some wooden chairs scattered in the background. In the next shot we see him from an upstairs landing, and there is now one wooden chair with its back directly at the table, and one white plastic chair where the wooden chairs were before.
Continuity mistake: When Dave drives up the parking garage of the Yankee stadium we see him coming up the ramp to the upper level. Then the camera cuts to the side and he is seen passing by a row of parked cars which weren't there before, then it cuts back to his car still on the same ramp.
Continuity mistake: After the first fury fighters' meeting Buddy declares Chuck as Dave's anger ally. Chuck wants to give Dave his phone number, pulls out a letter to his father he had started, puts it back in the pocket, then takes out a smaller piece of paper with the number. Then he walks off with both hands empty, but when the camera angle changes he is seen waving back with a piece of paper which, sizewise, looks very much like the one he had given to Dave.
Continuity mistake: In the scene with Dave and Chuck at the bar, when the camera is on Chuck before he picks up the fight, we twice see the arm of the same person opening the door and holding it open without walking in. (The black and white sleeve has a strange resemblance with Lou's from the fury fighters' meeting scene, and it looks a bit as if he opened the door but realized that he had no business being on the set.)
