Continuity mistake: In the scene where the guy and the girl are making out on the bed, they trigger a bell to ring in Kane's lair. The bell shown ringing is a large bell on the far left top row of two rows of bells. When he walks into the room to see which bell is ringing, the bell ringing is a small bell in the middle of the bottom row and the large bell isn't moving at all. Later in the movie, that same large bell is triggered when the kids are walking down the hall and hit a trip wire, and it makes a completely different sound than the first time.

Continuity mistake: When Tom is showing his co-workers the video he shot of Wesley eating a hamburger, the video clip is actually of Wesley eating the first hamburger, which happened before Tom started filming him. You can see Tom's reflection in the window, and he's just sitting, not filming anything. (00:32:45)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Marilyn arrives at the bar to see her friend Liz, as she sits down there is only a bowl of olives in front of her. A few shots later, there is now a drink in front of her as well. Never during the scene does she order a drink, or does a bartender set one down in front of her. (00:33:15 - 00:34:25)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Roger is waiting for Amanda at the top of the escalator at the airport, the bundle of flowers in his hands changes position every time there is a shot of him. Sometimes you can see the bright red flowers, sometimes you can't. He is not moving the bundle around, simply holding it. (01:29:30 - 01:30:30)

Continuity mistake: In the scene right after Bobby has shot the innocent guy he and Perry are framing for the Sidwell/Orchard crimes, the guy is laying on the ground, dead. There is a gun that Perry put near him, above his head, on the ground. In the next shot, from the point of view of the helicopter flying overhead, the gun is not there. In the next shot, it reappears. (01:42:20)

Question: Just curious if anyone had a theory about Dr. Gordon. Zep and Adam are still in the house, we see them at the end of the movie. But where is Dr. Gordon? After seeing Adam & Zep's dead bodies, I kind of thought we'd see Gordon stuffed in a closet somewhere. Or maybe his lack of presence means he got away?

Question: Jigsaw intended for Xavier to go in the needle pit, but Amanda is thrown in instead. Did Jigsaw anticipate that it might be someone besides Xavier, so that all the needles looked dirty, but weren't going to infect anyone with anything? Did Amanda know that she had nothing to worry about, besides the pain of the needles stuck in to her?
6th Feb 2006
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Washburn and the other undercover cop are attempting to buy calling cards from the Cubans, Washburn asks for the guy hiding in the other room to come out. The guy does come out, and he leaves the door open to the room he was just in. The next few shots go back and forth between Washburn and the head Cuban guy facing the two other Cubans. Each time they show these two guys, the door behind them is open. After they all stop laughing, they show the guys again, and the door is closed. In the next shot, the head Cuban guy yells that Washburn is a cop, and runs through the now open again door.

Plot hole: In the scene where Michael Shannon attempts to rob John C. Reilly and Diego Luna, he takes the briefcase, looking for the check, but it is empty. Diego Luna then reveals he has the check in his pocket. In none of the previous scenes does Diego Luna have a chance to take possession of this check. The check remains in the briefcase, and the briefcase is always in John C. Reilly's possession.
