The Game mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the restaurant, when the waitress runs into Michael Douglas and they both get wine all over each other, watch her shirt carefully. In one shot there are many wine stains all over. The next shot, there's not much. Then it goes back to having lots of wine stains. (00:35:40)

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas and Christine are starting to leave her apartment after Nicholas smashes the smoke detector, Christine puts on her coat, then it cuts to the CRS van. When it cuts back to her, she only has the coat on her right arm. (01:20:15)

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas waits at the CRS office he is supervised by a hidden camera. In the convex cover of the camera you see a reflection of the whole room but Nicholas, who is standing in the middle of the room, is not visible. (00:18:40)

Deliberate mistake: Every time Nicholas enters his gate at home, it's daylight and then when he drives up to the house it is night. Either he has a 300 mile property or there is something else going on. It would appear that it is deliberate as it happens many times in the film. Symbolically, Nick is leaving the world as he appears with wealth and privilege (light) and entering the real van Orton world of solitude and sadness (dark). (00:09:00 - 00:09:55)

Nicholas: I don't care about the money. I'm pulling back the curtain. I want to meet the wizard.

Trivia: The final party scene was filmed over a three night period at the real Palace Hotel. To save money, the same food was used all three nights, which stank up the place for days.

Question: SPOILER: How did The Game managed to get Nicholas Jump right into the giant Mattress in the end?

Answer: One of the guys says, at the end, if he (Nicholas) didn't jump, it was his job to push him. It's just good luck he landed right in the correct spot - we can only assume that if he was going to jump in entirely the wrong place he would have been stopped.

Answer: On the roof there was a waist high rim too high to step up onto, but there was a portable step in just the right place to position Douglas exactly where he needed to jump off to hit the air bag perfectly.
