Corrected entry: How on earth can the computer guy tell that Mr. Dean's nanny doesn't shave her legs, given that in the one scene she has, she is wearing trousers. Odd.
Corrected entry: When they enter the "jar" at the end of the movie, the cat in one cut is locked out of the fence and the next cut the cat is in the fence and running up the stairs.
Corrected entry: When the politician is murdered, the murderer walks up behind him as he opens the front door of his car. But when the Daniel Zavitz examines the tape of it, the politician is opening the back door.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Gene is talking to Jon there are clear skies and it's sunny. As soon as Gene starts running it's raining.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, Brill, in the van outside the restaurant, says "This guy's going down and he's gonna take all of you with him. Trust me on this." However, when we are at the FBI interview room, the recording of the same conversation is missing the line "Trust me on this." (01:50:05 - 01:58:55)
Corrected entry: When Zavitz is looking through the videotape from the lake, it is first black & white when there are just some birds. But when the killing on the other side of the lake is shown, the video suddenly turns to colour.
Corrected entry: When Gene Hackman is in the lift stripping bugs from Will Smith the surveillance van moves to get a better position. As it pulls out it clearly hits a parked car on its right side. When the van is next seen turning a corner to get the better position there is not even a scratch on the side of the vehicle.
Corrected entry: When the people at the NSA realize that Will Smith and Gene Hackman are at a convenience store, they look at a video taken from their satellite twenty minutes earlier. They obviously didn't program their satellite to watch the convenience store so how did it look at that area by itself?MARK CICCARELLO
Corrected entry: After Brill (Gene Hackman) and Will Smith's character hijack the Mercedes, will pulls the cat out of the bag. Well in the background you can see that there is a handle for the window which indicates that the Mercedes they are riding in doesn't have power windows. But that particular Benz that they stole was a 99 model so it should have a button instead of a handle.
Corrected entry: Reynolds wants to discredit Dean so if he ever comes forward with the tape nobody would believe him. But I don't see how that would do anything since the tape speaks for itself and I can't see how any intelligent person would dismiss it simply because the person who had it is questionable.
Corrected entry: When the guy is hit by the bus, the surveillance camera shows him lying in the road surrounded by small splashes of blood, but when we cut back to the street through the film camera, there is no blood visible.
Corrected entry: In the early scene where Will Smith is confronting the "Mafia Boss" with the video of him consorting with union representatives, the Boss is shown mugging for the camera. Obviously, he knows he is being taped. Immediately thereafter, he starts to threaten Smith, demanding to know who made the tape, as if it had been made surreptitiously.
Other mistake: When Will Smith checks into the hotel and his credit cards are invalid, we see that the time is 5:38 and it is daylight outside. The only problem with this is that it is supposed to be around December given all the Christmas decorations. It would be dark then in the Baltimore, not soaked with daylight.
