Other mistake: Winkelmann has the habit of confusing floors, thus trying to open his neighbor's door. When he returns home after the club session he, therefore, checks the name on the mailbox before he opens his door, but this name is much to short to be his (it's safe to assume it's not his nickname Pussi).
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Winkelmann and Mrs. Tietze try to make the Melzers change their sofa upholstering to something less depressing, they step out to have a private talk and end up in a muddy flower bed. When they walk back in they don't leave any marks on the terrace but heavy mud prints on the living room floor, although Winkelmann's shoes look spick-and-span after he sits down.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Reuben tries to catch Poly before she leaves for good, he sees from a distance that she climbs into a taxi. He starts running after her but stops at her house, when he sees the taxi turning around the corner and realizes that he can't catch her any more. In this last shot of the taxi the street scenery is totally different, for example there are two big trucks on both sides of the road which weren't there before, and it must be the same road because Reuben sees her from her house from where she started.
Continuity mistake: After Reuben's arrival in Los Angeles, where he is supposed to meet Leland van Lew, he sees him entering the service elevator. They go up to the rooftop together from where Leland does a base jump, using a parachute that he is wearing under his jacket. However, when we saw him at the ground floor there was nothing under his jacket: in the front the belt should have been partly visible, and also the bulge in the back wasn't there.
Continuity mistake: For the arrival at St. Bart three different planes are used: The shadow on the ocean belongs to a single-propeller machine, the following close-up shows two engines and an antenna on top of the cockpit, and when the plane lands the antenna is gone and the engines are much smaller.

Continuity mistake: When Bob carries Charlotte to her room he unlocks the door with a key which appears to be in his hand. However, there was no key in his hand while he was carrying her down the corridor, and he didn't retrieve from anywhere (which would have been difficult anyway with her still in his arms).
