Memento
Memento mistake picture

Revealing mistake: At the 'beginning' when Teddy and Leonard drive up to the abandoned building with the old truck out front, inside the truck Leonard handles a number of .357 revolver calibre bullets that have apparently not been fired, but you can clearly see the indented primers in the base of the bullets, indicating that they are just inert movie props. (00:04:40)

Revealing mistake: At the diner Teddy puts his fingers on Leonard's pulse and Teddy's watch reads 4:45. Teddy jokes that Leonard probably left his key in his room. Leonard goes back to his motel to find his key and asks Burt for the time, to which Burt replies, "A quarter to one," - 12:45. (00:24:25 - 00:26:20)

Continuity mistake: In the scene in which Leonard writes on the back of his picture of Teddy, "He is the one. Kill him," we see a shot of Leonard placing the picture on top of his tan jacket on the bed as he goes to write on it. Then, it goes to a close-up of the picture in which the jacket has disappeared and the picture is lying directly on the blue bedspread. It actually happens twice within that same scene. (00:15:15)

Natalie: Is that what your little note says? It must be hard living your life off a couple of scraps of paper. You mix your laundry list with your grocery list you'll end up eating your underwear for breakfast.

Question: What/who is Leonard listening to through the wall (with the empty glass), or is it meant to be ambigious?

Nick N.

Chosen answer: He was paranoid, so he was listening to hear if they were cops.
