The Devil's Own

Factual error: Tom lays down on the couch and turns on the (off-camera) TV, only for his wife to immediately tell him they're out of milk. The audio from the TV is someone talking about a NY Rangers hockey game, as they mention (Jeff) Beukeboom and (Mike) Richter. The film is set in 1992, but the TV says Beukeboom has just scored his 7th goal of the season. The problem is Beukeboom only scored 7 goals once: in 1994 (two years after the movie takes place). And the TV says the goal was unassisted; but the lone time Beukeboom scored his 7th goal of a season, it was assisted by Mark Messier and Mike Gartner. (00:32:20)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie Frankie/Rory's (Brad Pitt) mother is serving the dinner. She gives them all dinner except herself, and then sits down. Then the father says the prayer, and when he does that you can see the whole table, and there is food on the mother's plate.

Rory: Then you'll have to kill to stop it. Get's a bit complicated, doesn't it?
