Continuity mistake: During the Bronco-following scenes, the silver Cadillac goes back and forth between having (during interior shots) and not having an antenna on the fender on Richie's side of the Cadillac. This is because the interior scenes were filmed using a Ford Torino, not the Cadillac. (01:00:45)johnrosa
Factual error: At the start of the movie, as Bumpy and Frank enter an electronics store, Bumpy mentions Toshiba products. However, the company was, in 1969, named Tokyo Shibaura, and the name wasn't changed to Toshiba until 1978.
Factual error: As Crowe follows the man with the money bag, they cross a street and we see a white Dodge van of mid-1990s vintage parked at the curb. Note the wrap-around tail lights and the high-mounted center brake light above the rear window - a feature not on vans until after 1990. (01:01:45)johnrosa
Visible crew/equipment: About an hour and 12 minutes into the film, Russell Crowe is chasing the guy in the Bronco. After he gets to where he is going, he stops by the window of a building and watches some men enter. The camera changes to his point of view and pans to the left. As it is doing so, its reflection becomes visible in the glass. (01:12:30)manthabeat
Factual error: Protesters can be seen and heard on the TV, chanting, "LBJ, how many kids did you kill today." Since the film's time frame is in the 70s, as evidenced by all the 70s cars, LBJ hadn't been the focus of the war protesters for years. (00:37:30)
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when Richie stops by Joey Sadano's house for the last time, he exits the car with snowflakes flying. He even shivers and warms himself walking up to the house. Inside the house the snowflakes are still flying outside Joey's back window, yet the entire backdrop shows a lush landscape full of green trees in mid-summer glory.DJ Vander Schaaf
Factual error: A few moments after the 20% rent deal for $1 in the cafe you can see a 747-400 (or later) in the sky, the winglets identify it as such. The 747-400 had its maiden flight in April 1988. That scene plays in 1968.
