Continuity mistake: On the bus when Jimmy grabs Oz' face and lets go of it, we see Jimmy putting his hand down. When it cuts Jimmy has his hand to his head and puts it down again. (00:35:45)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Strabo is pointing his gun at Oz and Oz hits it with his flowers, a shot goes off. Then it shows a lamp being hit. A split second later the vase beside it also breaks. There shouldn't be a split second between the two items breaking. A gunshot at that range would make both the lamp and the vase break at the same time. (00:21:35)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Oz is about to go buy bus tickets and Jimmy says "Do that squeeler.", Jill is walking behind Jimmy. When it cuts Jill is in front of Jimmy. (00:33:55)

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy, Oz, and Jill stop for dinner on the bus ride, Jimmy tucks a napkin in his shirt under his chin. Several shots in the scene show no napkin. (00:36:55)

Continuity mistake: When Lazlo gets back home, his mom and Cynthia is sitting on the couch. Cynthia has a cup and places it on the plate, while Lazlo's mom doesn't have a cup. When it cuts Cynthia has the cup back in her hands and Lazlo's mom suddenly has a cup as well. (00:46:25)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Oz and Cynthia are discussing her pregnancy and she says "Don't ruin this," a waitress pours wine into Oz's glass, then she stops. When it cuts, she is still pouring wine into the glass. (00:17:45)

Mortug

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Jill and Jimmy are arguing and Jill says "There is something wrong with you", she points at Jimmy. Jimmy then starts denying this and turns around. When it cuts Jill is no longer pointing at him. (00:07:00)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Lazlo's men begin to shoot inside Oz' house, Oz runs out. At the same time Lazlo turns on the light. Then we hear the engine on Oz' car start. It's impossible for Oz to have gotten to his car THAT fast. (00:21:40)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Jill and Jimmy are arguing at the motel, Oz tells Strabo that Jimmy killed 21 people. Later at the bar when Jimmy is very drunk, he tells Oz that he has killed 21 people. Oz corrects him and says, "22 people", and Jimmy says, "Who'd I forget". Oz replies with "Frankie Figgs". Apparently Oz had forgotten that information as well when he was bragging to Strabo earlier. (Also, why would Oz know who Jimmy had forgotten?).

Continuity mistake: When Oz is looking at his wife through the surveillance cameras, the toothbrush he is holding changes from his mouth to his hand a few times. (00:09:50)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Strabo is tied to the chair and falls down the stairs, the chair remains whole at the top of the stairs. Later when Oz looks down the stairs the chair is at the bottom and is totally broken, and even if it fell down by itself it wouldn't have been smashed to pieces like that. (01:01:20 - 01:02:50)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Strabo picks up the knife from the jug with his mouth, the jug remains standing. When it cuts the jug has suddenly tipped over. (01:00:45)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Oz, Jill and Jimmy run through the door hidden behind a closet, as it cuts from inside you can see them turning right immediately as they get in the door. You can also see a banister by the entrance. When it cuts to outside you see them running straight ahead. This means that they in fact are running through the banister, however the banister is now gone. (00:31:50)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: After Jill has shot Jimmy she grabs her face crying. When it cuts her hands aren't on her face. (01:28:15)
