Audio/visual unsynchronised 

Much of the audio doesn't match Diavolo's lips in the limo surround scenes.

Character error 

In the courtroom scene, Cliff is spinning this wild yarn about his and Thema's family in Louisiana and he uses the word 'county' when Louisiana uses parishes, not counties.

Continuity 

The windshield glass Doctor Detroit breaks is shown inconsistently between shots. Sometimes the glass is very dirty, almost opaque, in other shots it is very clear.

Doctor Detroits hands are in a different position between shots. When he initially jumps aboard the tow truck, he uses the side-view mirror as a handle. In the next cut, he is shown holding on to the window frame.

The passenger side mirror on the tow truck is in a different position before (collapsed against the door) and after (away from the door) the doctor jumps aboard.

Errors in geography 

Smooth books a one-way flight to the Cook Islands, then local service to Roratonga. In fact the Cook Islands international airport is *on* Roratonga.

Initially, the cable Doctor Detroit uses to escape the junk cars avalanche is much shorter and of a different configuration than the cable he uses to ride along the graveyard (obvious prop).

Handle on the passenger-side roof of the tow truck, not duplicated on the drivers-side of the roof (obvious prop). A low camera angle used to conceal the prop.

Spoilers 

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

When Cliff wins the sword fight against Mom, and puts the end of his sword at her chest, you can clearly see the tip is very blunt. In a following scene, Cliff thrusts the sword upwards into the ceiling, without the blunt tip.
