Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Orin Sr. is watching a showgirl rehearsal, one of his lackeys walks up to him, hands him a cordless phone and tells him it's his son. He pulls on the antenna and we hear the sound of a telescoping metal antenna, but it's a solid rubber antenna.

Character error 

Sarah is working her bee hives in a protective veil and gloves. These are to help prevent the bees from entering the clothing at the sleeves. Sarah is wearing a dress the bees could easily fly under and accidentally sting her when she moved. She should had worn slacks and had clips or bands at the ankle to prevent the bees from entering her clothes

The Chevrolet 3100 seen on the highway prior to the semi ramming it is seen with a nonstock independent front suspension from a 1963-87 Chevrolet 1/2 ton light truck - the truck being rammed has the original i-beam (straight axle) front suspension with front leaf springs which was used by Chevrolet and GMC (the 1947-55 (first design series) had this straight axle front suspension which was last used in 1959 when GM redesigned the front suspension with control arms and torsion bars for the 1960-62 model year; coil springs were used with the 1963 - 2007 model years (its final application was the GMT800 where its current successor used a strut-like setup).

Factual errors 

Near the end of the movie, Jack throws a flare towards one of the fake US Marshals who catches it just inches before it lands in a puddle of gasoline. Liquid gasoline is itself not flammable; but gasoline vapor is. Holding a flame inches away from such a large puddle of gasoline would ignite the vapors.

Many scenes in the movie take place in a bar in Jackson. Jackson is located in Breathitt County, which is "dry", meaning the sale of alcoholic beverages is illegal.
