Crew/Equipment Visible
In the scene where Lenny walks into the bedroom of the suite at the Bonaventure and finds Gant's body, the reflection of the cameraman's legs is visible next to Lenny's on the mirrored wall.

Crew/Equipment Visible
A Steadicam operator is seen on the bottom of the screen at the end.

Crew/Equipment Visible
One of the crew is seen in the side view mirror of Jericho's Jeep when he's driving around with Iris.

In the scene where the cops confront Lenny at the impound lot, they ask him for the disc. He pulls ii out of his briefcase and shuts it, but never snaps it closed. In the next shot when the dog bites the cops leg, Lenny is seen picking up the magically snapped shut case and running off.

While Max shoots Philo, the mirror behind him is cracked. After he shoots him, the mirror is unbroken.

When the movie ends Steckler is chasing Mace through the crowd there is one time when the film is reversed. Steckler's badge appears on the wrong side of his body and his gun has changed hands.

In the scene where Lenny is stabbed in the back by Max at the Bonaventure, the knife changes positions on Lenny's back more than once.

Lenny's cell phone switches sides when he is driving.

Audio/Video Mismatch
In the scene where Lornette and Lenny are in her house and she has him pinned against the wall, you can hear her voice but her mouth is not moving.
