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.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the film, when the narrator and Tyler are fighting in the basement, Tyler slams the narrator's head into the wall by the van. For a split second, before the shot changes, the 'concrete' wall visibly buckles inwards.

STP

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: Check out the sweat stain around the collar of Ed Norton's t-shirt in the scene towards the end of the film where he is being interrogated by police. It keeps getting bigger and smaller from shot to shot.

Visible crew/equipment: In the sequence where The Narrator is explaining about Tyler's projectionist job, a boom mike is visible at the upper left hand side of the screen, before Tyler explains about the cigarette burns.

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: When Tyler gets beaten up by Lou, his mouth is bleeding after the first punch. After maybe two punches Tyler jokingly claims to "get it", then he says he "lost it". Right then the blood is no longer there.

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: Towards the beginning when Edward Norton is ordering out of the catalog, he is walking into his kitchen. Look at his shadow to his left, it doesn't change distances indicating a blue or green screen.

Visible crew/equipment: During the police interrogation The Narrator is pinned to the table, after he gets the gun and rolls back off the table you can easily see the power pack attached to his back/underpants during the roll.

Jack Vaughan

Continuity mistake: When Jack asks Tyler if he can stay at his place, there is a glass bottle on the payphone to the left. When the shot changes from the far shot to the close shot, the bottle is further to the right. It's back to the left when the far shot comes up again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Brad Pitt is fighting Edward Norton in a garage, he takes off his jacket and he is wearing a shirt under it. Between shots he goes from wearing a shirt to not wearing a shirt and to wearing a shirt again.

Revealing mistake: When the "waiters" leave the restaurant after assaulting the old police man you can see that Meat Loaf's pants fall down revealing the wrinkled fat suit he is wearing underneath.

Jack Vaughan

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.

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the movie, around the time Ed Norton is putting the gun to his face, Brad Pitt throws his cigarette down twice.

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.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film when Tyler throws Ed Norton down the steps we get the view from a security camera, however we can see the camera we are supposed to be looking through in the top right hand corner.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: Before the final fight scene between Tyler and the narrator, Edward Norton points a gun at Tyler telling him to step away from the van. Tyler breaks the key and throws it away. When this shot is seen through the security footage, then in the far left security computer screen we can see that there is already a gun shot hole in the back window of the van, and there is also some random guy walking in the top left corner of the screen.

Continuity mistake: When they are preparing to confront the City Councilman, Brad Pitt's character pulls him in to the bathroom. If you really look at the locks on the door you see that as he is pulling him in there is no deadbolt lock, but when the Councilman is halfway in through the mirror you can see that the same door has a deadbolt lock.

Continuity mistake: When Tyler Durden goes to Marla's apartment to prevent her suicide, he removes a cigarette from his mouth and gestures as if he is throwing it down on the floor at the top of the stairs. Then the cigarette is back in his mouth when he proceeds to the door, at which point he really does throw it down on the floor.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Marla's wearing the wedding dress, she grabs Rupert by the crotch. The second shot, a cigarette suddenly appears In her hand out of nowhere.

Local Celebrity

Continuity mistake: When the narrator first meets Bob, Bob starts telling him how he used steroids. In one shot we see the narrator's right hand is resting at the middle of Bob's back, but in the next shot we see his right hand at the top of Bob's back and a little above his armpit.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: After Bob is shot in the head, we see his corpse with half his head missing, but before that we see a flashback of him getting shot, and it just looks like he was shot in the back, no blood or flesh exits his head.

Visible crew/equipment: Tyler and the narrator are walking to the house for the first time. This shot tracks along the road. The camera track can be seen on the road (metal pipes), and the camera stops where you'd expect the end of the track to be.

Trivia

There are several places where Edward Norton sees Brad Pitt for a split second before he actually meets him (not counting when he passes him on the escalator): By the photocopy machine, talking to the doctor, the testicular cancer group, Marla in the alley, and then when watching TV when the waiters say "Welcome". Also Tyler is the one who steals the Camaro, after Tyler and narrator meet for the first time.
