Continuity mistake: Just after Pike pushes the chain filled with various pieces of metal through the window of the garage, Pike is shown kneeling downwards when one of the mechanics pulls a shelf off the wall and it lands on him. It then cuts to a different angle of Pike throwing the shelf off him where he is now standing upright. (00:55:23)
Continuity mistake: When Hawthorne is driving with Finch, Emeline and Mrs. Marcus in the car, just as Mrs. Marcus tells Hawthorne to keep driving after seeing Pike, Finch is shown sitting in the front, doing nothing aside from slightly readjusting his hat with his hand. The camera then cuts to outside, with the car driving past Pike, and we can see Finch is now leaning his head and arm out of the window. (00:40:25)
Continuity mistake: When the four cars are racing to stay ahead of each other, just as Benjy says "You're gonna lose your licence, Ding", the car they are in is ahead of Pike's truck.

Continuity mistake: When everyone rushes back to their vehicles after failing to talk about how to split the money, Pike's truck and Finch's car are shown to have shadows positioned to the left of their vehicles.

Continuity mistake: Whilst discussing how to split the money, after Finch says "Please don't argue anymore, you're hurting everybody's feelings", Benjy says "Look" and raises his hands upwards. In the next shot, he is suddenly pointing with a finger on his right hand, something he was not doing in the previous shot. (00:30:23)
Continuity mistake: When Culpeper's hat gets run over, the hat is shown landing upside down, but in the next shot, when the man in the car is shown driving away, in the background we can see that the hat is now right side up. The hat is also positioned to the right of the road markings when it lands, but when the shots cut, it is now left of the road markings. (00:24:30)
Continuity mistake: All the inside shots of both cabbies driving show the interior color is tan and brown, but in the scene where Pike is hanging out of the cab as it's driving away one cab's interior is two tone green. When they open the doors at the crash scene with the chief's car at the end you can see the other car has a silver and black interior.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, Smiler passes first the truck and then the Volkswagen but then passes 3 other vehicles before he passes the Imperial. Two of the 3 cars are never seen again. The 3rd is a light cream Chrysler station which is supposed to be the '62 blue Plymouth wagon of Sid Caesar.
Continuity mistake: Whilst Culpeper is being chased by the two taxicabs, there is a shot from inside Culpeper's car looking out of the front windshield. In the shot, a "One Way" sign can be seen in the middle of the road whilst the car turns around the corner. It then cuts to a wide shot where the sign has suddenly disappeared. (02:28:13)
Continuity mistake: When Culpeper is shown driving down the road, and is about to turn back onto the main road after leaving the park, the two taxicabs filled with the other 13 people who went after the money can be seen to the far right of shot. A couple of people can be seen standing behind the taxicab in front. But a couple of shots later, when the people in the taxicabs get out, those people shown standing by it are nowhere in sight. (02:22:05)
Continuity mistake: Just after the briefcase with the money has been dug up, whilst Benjy is saying "Everybody's gonna get something, so no arguments cause we all get an equal share", Meyer is shown holding onto the briefcase with both hands on each side.

Continuity mistake: When Culpeper and Emmeline approach the others whilst they are digging up the money, Finch is shown saying "Faster, faster, dig, dig" whilst holding onto a shovel.
