Continuity mistake: Close to the end when Edward Norton runs up to the front of the empty building and Brad Pitt appears, he tries to break the glass door by pushing a bench into the door, but it doesn't work. He doesn't move the bench and he then shoots at the glass and breaks it. When it shows him walking through the broken door, the bench has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When the Narrator and Bob are crying together at the support group, Bob is much taller than the Narrator. However, when the two meet in front of Marla's place and Bob tells the Narrator that he is a member of Fight Club, the Narrator is taller than Bob. Edward Norton mentions this on the commentary. He is actually taller than Meat Loaf, but Bob is supposed to be taller than the Narrator. It seems they didn't remember to make him taller in every scene though.
Revealing mistake: When members of Fight Club are starting fights, watch VERY closely when the guy with the hose sprays the vicar - you can see the camera wobble slightly (looking on the left of the screen at the top of the fence is a good reference point). This happened because the cameraman started to laugh.
Continuity mistake: In the scene towards the end where The Narrator is trying to break into the building, he smashes the bench into the door and fails to break the glass. He then shoots the glass with the pistol and it jams. The camera cuts to the next shot and the pistol is no longer jammed.
Continuity mistake: In the scene in the bar right after Edward Norton's apartment blows up, watch the men playing pool behind him. Towards the end of his conversation with Pitt, there is a continuity error. One of the men is bent over getting ready to take a shot. A mere second later, he's on the other side of the table and his opponent is finishing his own shot.
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie in the underground car park, Brad Pitt pushes Edward Norton into the wingmirror of a van. The mirror flips back against the van and stays there. A couple of shots later we see Brad Pitt check his face in the mirror, which is at a different angle to what it was before.
Revealing mistake: Just after the car crash scene when they are all crawling out of the car, a large drop of rain is seen in the very top left of the picture. The drop is too large and falls too slowly to be an actual drop of rain. This shows there is an umbrella type thing protecting the camera from the water.
Revealing mistake: When Brad Pitt is cutting out newspaper articles about Project Mayhem's mayhem, the headlines refer to their deeds, but the actual writing in the articles has absolutely nothing to do with the movie. They seem to all come from one article about some town council meeting.
