Continuity mistake: In the beginning scene of the cop calling out the inmates for their lunch, just as he calls "Hey Turkey." you can see the shadow of the supposedly hanged Jake Fratelli on the right wall. The shadow is totally inconsistent with the design of the cell and position Jake was hanging in.
Visible crew/equipment: When Jake runs out of the County Jail, as the camera pans down when he shouts, "Francis, the lock," the moving boom's reflection is visible over the back door, and the camera's and cameraman's reflections are visible on the vehicle's surface, right behind Mama Fratelli.
Continuity mistake: During the jail breakout, when Jake tries to open the ORV's door, in the shot facing Francis he is holding the gun in his left hand as he tries to open the door for his brother with his right hand. In the next shot facing Jake just before shouts, "I don't have the handle, open the lock!" Francis's gloved left hand is empty, and next shot, the gun can be seen in his right hand.
Continuity mistake: During his escape from the County Jail, when Jake tries to open the locked car door, in the interior shots looking out, the window between Francis and Jake is completely covered in water droplets, but in the exterior shot facing Francis that window is spotless.
Continuity mistake: During the jail escape, when Jake is trying to open the locked door, there is a close-up of Mama Fratelli shouting, "Jake, up!" and we see a police cruiser parked on her left. When they leave, in the overhead shot that space is empty, but next shot a vehicle is there, though it isn't a police cruiser.
Continuity mistake: When Francis Fratelli pours the gasoline in front of the County Jail, there's a parked police cruiser at the corner of the building next door, in front of its windows. After he ignites the fire, there is a close-up of the ORV's tire as the vehicle pulls away, and in the background that squad car is gone, but in the next overhead shot that parked police cruiser is back.
Continuity mistake: When the Fratellis leave the County Jail, the first police cruiser which makes the U-turn has a smooth chrome bumper with only a recessed license plate at the center, but when they make the first left turn, that squad car now has a chrome bumper with driving lights at each end and bumper guards on both sides of the license plate. It's funny how when they make the next right turn, the car style actually changes mid-turn, between shots - just before the second police cruiser joins the pursuit.
Continuity mistake: When the first police car makes a U-turn, to chase the Fratellis, the squad car's front passenger window is rolled up, as the officer's hands are on the steering wheel. But in the next interior shot, facing that window, it's rolled down - there's even a black wire hanging over the bottom of the open window, to the left.
Continuity mistake: When the back of the Fratelli's ORV is riddled with bullet holes, you can see they make a distinctive backwards "L" shape above the Jeep letters. Later, when Chunk examines the ORV, the bullets holes are now in different places than they were before. Also, the license plate that is seen on the ORV when it is hit by the bullets, changes design as well.
00:02:45 - 00:30:30
Revealing mistake: During the police chase, when the Fratellis turn left in the close-up (just before the shot of Mouth's TV), sitting in the passenger seat instead of Francis we see a man who is taller, wears no glasses and is at least 25 years older than our Francis. Also note the man who is driving instead of the real beloved Mama Fratelli.
Continuity mistake: At the start, when Data practices with the blue suction dart, in the close-up as the dart flies out we can see the mechanisms inside Data's invention. When it cuts to a tighter close-up, suddenly there is a spinning spool welded inside, which was not in the previous shot, that is retracting the orange string.
Continuity mistake: At the start, when Data practices with the orange drum, just as the blue suction dart is released, the stick part remains on his belt while the suction cup and string go flying off, but in the next close-up the stick is between the string and suction cup, then the next shot of the belt shows the stick is gone.
