Revealing mistake: When Rita pulls the first stack of hundreds out of her purse, she puts it down next to her. The bill on top is very close to looking real, but the bill underneath is very fake looking. (00:44:15)

Trivia: When Edna (John Travolta) tells Tracey that when she learns to get blood out of car upholstery it's a skill she can take to the bank, while the line was in the original broadway show before Travolta's involvement, it's now also a coincidental reference to Pulp Fiction where Travolta's character cleans brains and blood from the inside of a car.

Other mistake: When Nitti (Billy Drago) kills Oscar in the elevator, not only is there not nearly enough time for him to write "Touchables" on the wall, but the writing looks like it was done with the aid of a ruler. If he had actually written it in the minute it took the elevator to reach the bottom floor, it would be smeared all over the place. (01:06:50)

Visible crew/equipment: When the car goes off the cliff towards the end, you can see crew members watching and a red van with crew members in it.
