The Legend of Bagger Vance

Revealing mistake: During the war flashback there is a newspaper photograph with Captain Junuh on the shoulders of Savannah's young men. When the camera zooms into his face you can see it's someone else's, only in close-up it switches to Matt Damon's. This is surprising because in all other newspaper pictures Matt Damon is nicely worked in. (00:06:15)


Revealing mistake: When little Hardy Greaves hits a ball at some golfers the ball actually flies off from somewhere on the right, not from the spot where Hardy is standing. (00:04:20)


Revealing mistake: Junuh is sitting on the bench just after round one. Adele comes over towards him and sits down, but by doing so she reveals a pair of trainers.

Continuity mistake: On the last hole of the match, Hagen's putt goes 5-6 feet by. However, on the next scene is shown making a 1 foot tap-in.
