Continuity mistake: As Nicolas Cage is smoking a cigarette in his car when his daughter comes into view for the 1st time. The camera angle flips between him, him with her in the background, to his key, back to him, and back to him with her in the background. Each time the angle changes so does the length of his cigarette. The time span is only a matter of 10-15 secs as she walks up and then starts to walk away, but his cigarette ends up being longer than when she walked up. (00:25:25)Donald Jenkins
Other mistake: As Roy meets his daughter, he gets out of his car and we see the car door left open as he runs towards her. Near the end of their conversation, the camera focuses on Roy, and through the space between his body and right arm, you can see the side view mirror indicating the door is now shut without anyone touching it.

Trivia: The 4 main characters (Roy, Angela, Frank and Frechette) all smoke at some point in the film. This is a clue added by the filmmakers to indicate that the people who smoke in the film are con men, a teaser if you like to indicate that Angela is also involved in the con (This is revealed in the DVD director's commentary).
