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: 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 carries Bethany's body back to the church after she's been killed by God's blast of lightning, watch her fingers when Silent Bob puts her down; she adjusts them to rest more comfortably on her arm.

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: Kevin Smith has a love of Spielberg movies and makes reference to them in a number of his movies. In the scene where Silent Bob throws the pair off the train he remarks to a bewildered onlooker 'no ticket'. This is actually the same as in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, where Harrison Ford throws the German guard off the zeppelin and remarks the same line to a bewildered looking couple.

More trivia for Dogma

Question: How do Bartleby and Loki know Rufus? They haven't been in Heaven since they were expelled after killing all the first born sons of Egypt, which happened during Moses' time. Rufus died two years after Christ died and went straight to Heaven. Christ lived and died hundreds of years after Moses. So, presumably, Bartleby and Loki were in Wisconsin when Rufus went to Heaven. How would they recognize him?

Answer: In a scene shortly before, Azrael was telling them about the last scion being sent after them. After that scene cut, he could have mentioned that she had an Apostle with her. That, and, Bartleby was a 'Watcher' Angel (a Gregoriate if I remember correctly), and he can see into people's pasts.
