Dogma

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie Loki is speaking to a nun about the church at the airport. When they sit down Loki puts his arm around her chair. When she starts to get up it is still there but then the split second she gets up both of his arms are in his lap.

Continuity mistake: When Rufus falls out of the sky, it shows his body lying down. When Jay makes the comment about "Con Air" Rufus rises up while saying, "Con Air"? Con sh*t!" Yet in the next (non-close up) shot his body is still flat on the ground.

Continuity mistake: When Ben Affleck opens the church doors near the end, we see a flash of light. Then it cuts to God and the Metatron. They walk out and the light fades away completely. But when we cut back to Ben Affleck, the light has just begun to fade away.

Continuity mistake: When Bethany, Rufus and Serendipity are all sitting around the table in the strip club, the amount of liquor in Bethany's bottle changes from scene to scene.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when Bartleby is giving his rant in front of the church, there are a number of dead bodies behind him, but every time the camera comes back to him, the bodies are gone.

Continuity mistake: When Silent Bob renders the demon disabled by using the anti-odour spray, you see him take the spray out of his coat and spray with his thumb. However, it cuts to a front view, and he is clearly seen using his index finger. It then cuts to Bob's rear, and he is, again, spraying with his thumb.

Bethany: You're saying that having beliefs is a bad thing?
Rufus: I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier.

Trivia: When Jay drags Bethany behind the PA equipment and says that she'd agree to sleep with him if it was the end of the world, he pulls out a condom. If it's the end of the world, and existence is going to be undone, why bother with a condom? [It's a gag, rather than a mistake in the film. Worth keeping as trivia though.]

More trivia for Dogma

Question: Why is it that The Metatron, Bartleby, and Loki all refer to God as "He" when God actually turns out to be a woman? The Metatron even says "her" and "she" to Bethany, in reference to God, in a very patronizing manner, as if she's holding on to an incorrect belief.

Answer: Metatron explains at the very end that God has no gender, and can appear on Earth as a man or a woman. Metatron's patronizing tone is indicating that there are far more important matters afoot than which gender noun to use to describe God.
