Revealing mistake: During the final confrontation in Veidt's lair, you see the actor Billy Crudup in his SFX suit reflected in Nite Owl's goggles, not the image of Dr. Manhattan.

Trivia: This is for the trailer rather than for the final film, but worth a look. At 1:33 in the trailer, just after seeing Rorschach slam someone against a wall, we see another fight. Pause it and look at the guy in black - he's holding a walkie-talkie, which in the next shot becomes a gun. This is only trivia, not a mistake, because it's only valid for the trailer. The MPAA don't allow guns to be pointed at the screen in trailers, so Zack Snyder, in a tribute to the infamous gun-editing from E.T., replaced the gun in that one shot with a walkie-talkie.

Continuity mistake: When Dan returns home after talking to Mason, he finds Rorschach in his kitchen eating beans from a can. After he has finished eating, he throws the second can on the table where it lands next to another can. When he gets up, the two cans have moved significantly apart. (00:20:15)

Rorschach: You forgot how we do things, Daniel. You've gotten too soft. Too trusting. Especially with women.
Dan Dreiberg: No, listen, I am through with that! God, who do you think you are, Rorschach? You live off people by insulting them and nobody complains because they think you're a damn lunatic! I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that, man.
Rorschach: Daniel? You are a good friend.

Trivia: If you look closely, one of the movies playing on one of Ozymandias' screens is "The 300 Spartans", which deals with the same subject as director Zach Snyder's previous film, "300".

More trivia for Watchmen

Question: Why did Adrian Veidt also have to infect Moloch with cancer? The comedian mentions to Moloch that Moloch's name was on a list together with Janey Slater's (and others?), who were presumably the ones Veidt infected with cancer. So why Moloch, too? In order to make Dr. Manhattan and the world think that Dr. Manhattan was causing cancer? He had already infected Janey Slater and Wally Weaver who had more contact with Dr. Manhattan. I would think, Moloch and Dr. Manhattan only had brief contact with each other when Moloch was captured.

Answer: Moloch knowingly worked for Adrian at one time, installing carcinogenic gas canisters in ventilation ducts to give people cancer at the high-energy research facility. That's how Moloch developed terminal cancer; but Adrian killed Moloch with a bullet between the eyes before Moloch could reveal any more information to Rorschach. Adrian then set-up Rorschach for murdering Moloch. Anyone who worked "on the inside" of Adrian's plans or who might be an obstacle to those plans was a target for assassination. Adrian murdered his super-associates (The Comedian and Moloch, and he later attempted to kill Dr. Manhattan), he murdered his own hit-man, and he murdered his entire staff of scientists in order to protect his secret plans.
