Inside Man

Continuity mistake: As Dalton stands inside the bank vault staring at the cash, the scene jumps from a wide, distant shot, to medium, to close-in, just outside the cage. Another robber stands just outside and between jumps his gun position shifts from relaxed to raised to relaxed again.

Continuity mistake: The handwriting and capitalization written on the desk drawer sent by the robbers containing their demands changes when Detective Frazier discovers that it's bugged. For example, "SemTex" changes to "SEMTEX" and "CAMeras" changes to "camerAS".

Continuity mistake: In one scene, Clive Owen takes a piece of pizza and a bottle of water to the young boy who is being held hostage. The piece of pizza stays intact throughout the scene even though the boy is obviously eating it.

Other mistake: When Washington went back to his room at the end just before he pulls the diamond out of his pocket. He unloads his Glock. The magazine doesn't have any bullets in it and there wasn't any noise of a bullet falling out of the chamber as he moves the slide back.

Revealing mistake: When the policemen are looking at the security camera tapes, it is obvious that one of the infrared rays doesn't come from the lamp. It seems to come about 30 or 50 centimeters from the left.

Revealing mistake: When Detective Frazier enters the bank and tries to get the jump on Dalton Russell, they get into a struggle and fall down the stairs. As they fall down, look at Detective Frazier's head. It is supposed to be bald, but it suddenly has a full head of hair. It's quite obviously a stunt double.

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, after the cops storm the bank, all the cops walk into the vault, and as the camera follows them into the vault, you can hear the camera hit the metal vault door, and visibly see the camera shake from hitting it.

Audio problem: Towards the end of the movie, Jodie Foster talks to Christopher Plummer in a bathroom. He starts to talk about his past in World War II. His lips say fifty years ago, but the words you hear are sixty years ago.

Continuity mistake: During one scene, Clive Owen's female accomplice opens the safety deposit box. Then she moves and Clive Owen steps up to it. She moves behind him, but in the next shot she's next to him.

Deliberate mistake: At 1:44:31 a close-up of a bank safe deposit records document shows box sizes that don't match the sizes of the boxes themselves shown at 0:58:41 and 1:55:21. The document shows box 378=3x10, 379=5x5, 384=5x5, 388=3x10, 396=5x5 but the boxes themselves appear to be 378=5x5, 379=5x5, 384=3x10, 388=3x10, 396=10x10.

Factual error: At one point, Detective Keith Frazier gives orders to an Emergency Services Captain, who obeys them. In the real NYPD, a captain outranks a detective and would never take orders from his subordinate.

Revealing mistake: During the final conversation between Detective Frazier and Arthur Case, Frazier holds up his hand with the ring on his middle finger. It is pretty obvious that the hand was inserted into the scene in post production; the hand doesn't move in a natural way and simply looks out of place.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Jodie Foster barges in to see Christopher Plummer at the barber, she has a tote bag. She sits in an empty barber chair and places the bag on the floor before speaking to Plummer. As she rises to leave, she picks up the bag, but when the shot cuts to her just as she walked out the door, she is no longer carrying it. Both hands are clearly visible as she buttons her jacket, and the bag is not in either hand, nor is it slung over her wrist or arm. It is simply not there. This particular shot may only be visible in the theatrical and widescreen DVD versions, and not in an edited and "pan and scan" format.
