Matchstick Men

Revealing mistake: Throughout the film when we see wads of £50 notes they are quite fake as the print of the queen looks far too dark and the colours are off. Surely it wouldn't have been too much bother to put one real note on top of each wad? (01:06:50)

Continuity mistake: As Nicolas Cage is smoking a cigarette in his car when his daughter comes into view for the 1st time. The camera angle flips between him, him with her in the background, to his key, back to him, and back to him with her in the background. Each time the angle changes so does the length of his cigarette. The time span is only a matter of 10-15 secs as she walks up and then starts to walk away, but his cigarette ends up being longer than when she walked up. (00:25:25)
