Corrected entry: When the guys bring the dead Bob back to Tyler's, they tell him how he got killed. They then show the scene where the police were chasing them and Bob getting shot. However, how the hell did they get Bob back to Tyler's? If they are being chased by police, they're hardly going to go back, pick up his body and carry on running. Even if they waited until the police were gone, I somehow doubt that the police would leave a dead body lying in the middle of a park. (01:46:00)
Corrected entry: After Ed Norton's apartment blows up, he calls Brad Pitt and they meet at a bar. In the bar when Brad Pitt lights a cigarette its between his middle and index finger. The shot changes and then returns back to Pitt very quickly and the cigarette has changed positions to between his thumb and index finger.
Corrected entry: When Ed Norton is walking down the street he runs into Bob, and Bob tells him he joined fight club. He also tells him about Tyler. If Ed Norton is Tyler and Ed Norton is one of his friends wouldn't he notice they look exactly alike, or at least say he looks like him?
Corrected entry: In the scene in the cinema, Ed Norton says that while the rest of us slept Tyler worked as a projectionist. However, the cinema is full of children and showing a cartoon, so its unlikely Tyler works in the cinema at such a late time.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Ed Norton and Brad Pitt are fighting in the parking garage, Brad flips Ed into the ticket dispensing machine for admission into the garage. After the ticket dispences, we see the parking gate bar lift up. However the bar on these machines does not operate until the ticket is removed from the machine. I don't believe either Brad or Ed stopped the fight to take the ticket. (02:08:10)
Corrected entry: Right after the car crash scene, Ed gets out of the driver's side even though Tyler had been the one driving.
Corrected entry: When tyler is just about to burn Jack's hand with lye, he says "may i see your hand please" Jack holds out his hand and Tyler takes it. At this point in the film we see that Tyler is wearing a pair of black gloves, He burns Jack's hand with lye and holds it in place so Jack can't get away. You can plainly see the gloves. Tyler then takes the goggles he is wearing off and you see his hand has no glove on. But his hands were on Jack's all the time.
Corrected entry: In the very last scene where Edward Norton shoots himself to get rid of Brad Pitt, he survives because the shot exits his head somewhere under his left ears but you can clearly see that Brad Pitt has an exit wound on the back of his head. So why, if they are the same person, do they have different exit wounds? (02:08:15)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Marla Singer is talking on the phone with Jack, as she is saying "I've got a stomach full of Xanax... I took what was left of a bottle... might've been too much." The camera zooms in on the bottle, lying on its side. You can read most of the label except the first letter: "...anax - 300mg". Xanax only comes in 4 dosages - .25mg, .5mg, 1mg and 2mg. Obviously 300mg in a single pill would be a pretty fatal dosage, even if she only took one such pill. (00:48:05)
Corrected entry: When Edward Norton calls Tyler Durden for the first time, at the pay phone, the business card he reads the number off of says "Bedford" (or Bradford, I don't remember) and then gives the zip code, "19808". 19808 is the zip code of Wilmington, Delaware, where the book was originally set. There also is no Paper Street in Wilmington, Delaware.
Corrected entry: When Ed Norton calls Tyler in the phone booth, Tyler star 69's him to call him. Yet when we go back to Tyler's house, all of the phones are the old fashioned phones - not touch tone ones. He would not be able to do star 69 on his phones. Even Chuck Palahniuk points this out on the DVD.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, the camera drops below the building Tyler is holding the narrator hostage in to show that there is a bomb below them. At the end of the movie, their building does not explode (Ed Norton did unplug the bomb, but Tyler connected it back, you can see the clock ticking again at the beginning of the movie, and why else would he break the key in the lock to prevent re-entry?) The screen writer commentary on the DVD said that the building was not supposed to explode - when Ed Norton passed out from being thrown down the stairs at the end, he was taken to a different building without a bomb. However, if that's the case, then why did the first part of the movie show the building right on top of a bomb? either way someone made a big mistake here.
Corrected entry: When Ed Norton's character is on the toilet ordering stuff from Furni, he wears no tie. Later on - still on the phone - he opens the doors of a kitchen closet where you see him wearing one. (00:04:40)
Corrected entry: After entering the Paper Street house, all Space Monkeys shave their heads, even Mr. Durden himself, yet the blonde guy never does.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Norton is talking to Helena Bonham Carter on the phone when she is going to commit suicide, she says something like "Have you ever heard a death rattle" at that point Edward Norton is still holding the phone. But when Brad Pitt is telling the story to Edward Norton it is Pitt who is listening to her say those same words.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when Jack shoots himself in the mouth, the bullet exits behind his jawbone. This signifies that the bullet exited his mouth and kept traveling. But none of the window panes behind him are cracked or shattered from the bullet.
