Visible crew/equipment: When the police are leaving the motel, you can see a camera reflection in the S.W.A.T. van as it drives by.

Continuity mistake: The blood comes flowing out of Charlie's hand before he gets his thumb shot off.

Revealing mistake: When Charlie shoots the cow there is no bloodshed at all, even though the cow is supposed to be alive.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Charlie shoots the cow, he had turned off the headlight of the motorcycle. After he shoots the cow the first time, the headlight is back on.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Right after Charlie and Irene push the car over the cliff, Charlie asks Irene if she grabbed the wallet off the dash and she says no. Later in the motel, when they are lying in bed, Charlie is sharing family pictures with Irene and they talk about carrying pictures in their wallets. Charlie's was at the bottom of the lake with the car. [The deleted scene on the DVD doesn't really help - in it Hank jumps off the cliff to get his wallet, and then Irene follows. However the movie shows Charlie and Irene looking down the 30 meter high cliff and walking away with dry clothes. Deleted scenes can "disallow" a mistake only if they fill in plausible back story, rather than contradicting the "proper" movie directly.]

Deliberate mistake: When Layla is having babies and the first one comes out there is already a nappy on the baby.

Revealing mistake: After Charlie gets his thumb shot off by Dickey near the end, in most of the shots you can easily see that Charlie is bending his thumb behind the rest of his hand instead of computer graphics removing it.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: The movie starts out in the present and then flashes back. The skinny trees in front of the house are tall in the beginning and in the flashback they are small. They grow a little more every time it's been a few years, but when they come back to the present, the trees are still only half grown in one shot. In the next, they are fully grown.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When the baby is pulled out of Layla, you can tell that it's not a newborn baby because he is missing his umbilical cord.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where both Jim's characters are beating each other at the wheel of this red convertible, bad Jim throws good Jim out of the car which was doing some 30/40 mph in a straight line. In the next shot Jim is seen chasing the car on foot: the convertible is now doing no more than 7/10 mph and it's descending a hill after a sharp right-hand corner.

Continuity mistake: At the very end when Whitey and the boys are looking for Charley's finger, they are splashing around in a very muddy river, but from the underwater shots the water is quite clear.

Audio problem: This may be in the TV version due to language censoring, but in one of the helicopter scenes, you can tell that the sound of the helicopter is only a clip about a second long that is being played over and over.

Sol Parker

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Irene and Hank are driving along in Gerke's car and Irene is holding the dart in her hand there are some inconsistencies: 1) The right window is sometimes open, sometimes closed. 2) When she is threatening Hank with the dart her hair is sometimes hanging over the dart, sometimes not. 3) Her seatbelt is sometimes on top of her collar, sometimes under it.

Continuity mistake: This happens a lot in the movie but specifically... When Charlie is shooting the cow, the wide shots with the bike are really sunny, but in the close ups (fingers in the nose) it is overcast or studio lighting.

xx:xx:xx

Sol Parker

Continuity mistake: When Charlie compliments Irene on not giving a damn about her hair it gets tucked behind her left ear by itself.

xx:xx:xx

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Hank goes after the four baseball players the one whom he gets involved with is grabs a beer bottle. The camera cuts to Hank, then back to the four guys, and the beer bottle is gone although the man is leaning against the truck in exactly the same way as before. This happens before he may want to get his hands free to attack Hank.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Charlie is taking Irene back to New York on his motorcycle they come across a supposed dead cow in the middle of the road, which by the way you could totally tell is fake. Charlie pulls out his gun and shoots the cow a few times then throws his gun off to his right way off the screen. Next screen shot the gun is right next to him.

Visible crew/equipment: When Charlie starts beating the mirror on the train you can see the boom mic on the right of the reflection.

Add time

Factual error: The police are informed that Charlie and Irene are 100 miles away. As they board a police helicopter one of the cops tells them they can be there in 15 minutes tops. This means that the helicopter will be traveling at 400 mph. Police helicopters max out at about 130 mph.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Charlie tries to get the little girl off the street there are the same two extras walking by in short succession.

Continuity mistake: When the guys in the barber shop return to their game of checkers after admiring the well endowed mom the pieces on the board are arranged differently.

NancyFelix

Factual error: Much of this movie was filmed in the Burlington and Middlebury areas in Vermont. Therefore, there are a lot of inconsistencies with vehicle plates and identifying characteristics of things like particular state trooper uniforms/cars/etc. And yes, the abandoned bridge/railroad trestle/etc. is actually the pedestrian bridge over the Otter Creek in downtown Middlebury.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Just notice that in the clip at the very, very end of the movie, when Whitey says he thinks he's found the missing thumb, he ducks under without the hose in his mouth. But in the water, it's in. Then when he comes back out, it's out again!

Revealing mistake: Charlie tells Irene to jump from the moving train when he can't catch up to it. When Irene jumps, the train is standing still. It only appears to be moving because of clever camera manipulation.
