When Max and Leo are about to enter Franz's apartment building, a pretty woman passes by and they check her out. In the distance, a young man exits another building; as the woman gets closer to him, they obviously don't know one another. When Max and Leo leave Franz and walk onto the same sidewalk in front of the building, the very same pretty woman can be seen walking towards them; what's more, she is with the same young man who was exiting the building, and now they are a "couple."

When Max buzzes for Ulla to get the car, she appears literally 2 seconds later. There's no way she could have been in the outer office.

During the scene when Max and Leo are trying to talk Roger De Bris into directing "Spring Time for Hitler," Roger's personal assistant, Carmen Ghia places a wig on Roger's head to complete his costume for the choreographer's ball. As the scene cuts back and forth from wide shots to close ups of Roger while he is speaking, the bangs of his wig alternate between being off and on his forehead.

Factual errors 

During the time in Liebkind's flat and leaving it Max and Leo are wearing Nazi bandages on the right arm. However the real swastika bandages were worn on the left arm. Since Franz Liebkind was a "true" Nazi, he should have known that.

Revealing mistakes 

In the restaurant with the violin player, the violin is obviously a prop as the strings are slack and move easily when bowed.

After Bialystock and Bloom enter Roger de Bris' house, Carmen Ghia immediately asks them to take off their shoes to keep the white carpet clean. While on a shot of their faces, we see them both take off their shoes and hear audio to that effect. Yet when they get into the small elevator immediately after and in s subsequent scenes with Roger de Bris, they are obviously wearing shoes.
