Revealing mistake: After Al comes back when the power is turned on, Sam wins a game, breaks for the next and then we see a wide angle shot and the noise is made when Al shows Sam where to shoot. But the beam doesn't appear, even though the shot is seen by viewers.Joel Amos Gordon
Revealing mistake: After Sam nearly falls down the elevator shaft, the scene fades and comes back in with Sam speaking to the landlord about the incident. The landlord brushes off Sam's hat with his hand and hands it to him. The brushing motion was played in reverse first to extend the length of the action.Phixius
Revealing mistake: Sam and the other woman are staring at their reflections while Sam is getting ready. Notice where the woman with darker hair is standing in relation to Sam. Their mirror images are further apart. The woman with darker hair also has her head tilted to the right slightly. Her mirror image doesn't.manthabeat
Revealing mistake: The background while Scott is on the raft with Brooke Shields is blatantly a studio wall. The clouds have streaks on them with dark colors and the seam where the ocean meets the wall can be spotted. The film "The Truman Show" used the same technique.manthabeat
Revealing mistake: When Al jumps into the shot out of nowhere on the steps after the record producer leaves, Sam and the two girls abruptly move, giving away the technique to achieve Al showing up. The transition is usually smoother, this one happens to be rough and noticeable.manthabeat
Revealing mistake: Connie and Sam are talking in their room, while Sam is looking at his female self in the mirror. As Connie walks back into the shot, her shadow is cast on the wall behind the mirror. This indicates she came from the opposite direction that is possible in the reflection had this not been the mirror trick. In reality, she would have been coming from behind Sam, not from in front and wouldn't have cast a shadow on the wall with the mirror.manthabeat
