Factual error: In the very first shot of the movie, a clock is shown ticking. The time on the clock reads 05:59:56. It is obviously AM because a few seconds later at 06:00:00, Frank wakes up as if it was morning. As Frank sits up, clear daylight is visible outside of the window. This scene is supposed to be set during winter. We know this because there are many Christmas decorations. Since this is meant to be winter, it should still be dark at that time of day. (00:00:40)

Continuity mistake: At the airport, Sarah says "She has a camera in her purse, we have to kill her?" As soon as the camera stops panning around, Marvin is visible in the far background holding the pig teddy with the pig's legs facing the two. The shot then cuts to a close-up of Marvin. In this close-up, the pig teddy's legs are now facing the opposite direction. (00:37:00)

Character mistake: In the scene where Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, and John Malkovich are having lunch outside on a river in New Orleans, right after Mary-Louise Parker gets off the pay-phone, John Malkovich reads off the tail number of a helicopter flying over as "N9745C", even though the number is visible as "N9748C". A few minutes later, when the three are talking to James Rema in Mobile, in the airport control tower, they see the helicopter (again, visible as "N9748C"), only this time, John Malkovich correctly identifies it as "N9748C". (00:36:45 - 00:40:00)

Question: Why is Marvin wearing a plastic sheet over his suit in the scene where he, Frank and Joe are interrogating Alexander Dunning? (01:04:15)

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Intimidation. The implication is that he's going to be spilling Dunning's blood during the interrogation and doesn't want to get his suit dirty.

Question: On Frank's nightstand there is a clock. On this clock, the word "NO" is seen above the seconds. What is the "NO" supposed to mean? (00:00:40 - 00:06:55)

Casual Person

Chosen answer: The 'No' is supposed to show that there is no alarm set on the clock.

Casual Person

Question: Sarah stated that she and Frank first knew each other by talking over the phone, but what exactly was it that first got them having conversations over the phone in the first place? (00:00:05)

Casual Person

Chosen answer: The check he got and keeps tearing up. The first time he didn't get it was probably a legitimate error and he did not get the check, so called her company to get a new one, and then fell in love with her voice so continued to destroy the checks to keep talking to her.
