Leaving Las Vegas

Other mistake: Nick Cage is playing blackjack at a Caribbean stud table.

Other mistake: When Ben and Sera are in the casino playing blackjack, and Ben gets angry and loses control, he supposedly knocks the waitress to the ground. It's a terribly fake looking stunt because Nicholas Cage never even comes close to making contact with the girl playing the waitress. She just falls backward and throws her tray to the ground.

Continuity mistake: Moving out to Sera, Ben is packing his things in a motel. You can see a half full glass standing on a bed table on his left. In the next shot Ben is pouring alcohol to an EMPTY glass filling it in 1/3 approx. In the next scene glass is half full again and in the next one - FULL. Eventually he is drinking from a glass full of alcohol.
