There are continuity errors while Ricardo and Kornpett get in and out of Senator Jesus Braunschweiger's Mercedes. While searching for the keys, the rear passenger window is shot out. In the next scene, they exit the driver's side door, but the window is restored. Later, while driving away from the airport, the rear window is shot out in two places, although there is only one rifle shot heard. In a later shot, as the car drives away, the rear window is mostly removed instead of the two holes shot out earlier.

Factual errors 

It is mentioned at least once and seen on a newspaper headline that the United States Mint (Mint) was robbed. The Mint deals with coins. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) deals with currency. The BEP would have the engravings for currency, not the Mint.
