Continuity mistake: At the start of the film, Jodie Foster runs from the bar with flat shoes on. When she's in the road screaming for help, she's barefoot. Then when she leaves the hospital and goes back to identify the rapists at the bar, her shoes are back on her feet again.

Continuity mistake: When Ken visits Bob in prison, Bob still has a gold ring on his right hand ring finger. As the scene continues the ring disappears. (01:17:00)
