Continuity mistake: In the outdoor restaurant scene (where Tim Robbins has just spoken to Burt Reynolds), the waiter brings Tim Robbins a bottle of water and a wine goblet, but when he pours the entire bottle of water into the goblet, it's obvious that it was not a full bottle of water to begin with. It doesn't fill the glass of half way. A waiter would not serve an opened bottle of water to a diner.

Continuity mistake: When Tim Robbins opens the trunk of his Range Rover to get his umbrella to kill the rattlesnake in his front seat, watch for the reflection of the guy holding the camera. As Robbins goes around to the front, so does the cameraman. You can easily see his reflection in the car's windows the whole time.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, the clock in Tim Robbins's office reads 9:05. About 5 minutes later, when he walks to the building around the corner, the clock there reads 2:25.

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Tim Robbins is driving home in his Rolls-Royce, the legs and sneakers of the cameraman hanging out of the pickup truck can easily be seen, reflected in the Rolls' grille.

Continuity mistake: When Fred Ward announces that David Kahane has been killed, Griffin sets the basketball down on his desk twice.

Continuity mistake: At the resort in the desert, the waiter lights two candles on a table. When Tim Robbins and Greta Scacchi take their seats a second later, the candles are burnt down halfway.

Continuity mistake: When Griffin tells Bonnie that he's going out of town, his tie moves from side to side.
