Jackie Brown

Character mistake: Near the end of the movie when Ray shoots Odell, Ray checks Odell's pulse using his thumb. Since the thumb has an artery in it, you should never check someone's pulse using your thumb. As a cop, he should know this because I'm sure he's taken basic first aid.

Continuity mistake: Jackson, Fonda & De Niro are first together in Jackson's apartment and Fonda is sitting provocatively on the sofa in shorts with her legs crossed right/left. Shot changes over Fonda's shoulder and her legs are crossed left/right, back to original shot and her legs are crossed right/left again. (00:06:40)

Trivia: In one of the deleted scenes on the DVD (the one between Jackie and the cop in the restaurant) the cop is about to call over a waitress and he says 'Garçon' Jackie then corrects him and says 'Garçon means boy.' The same thing happens in Pulp Fiction when Tim Roth shouts for a waitress. Tarantino has said that the 'Garçon Waitress' will probably be a waitress in all of his films.
