As Rudy first reads the "stupid, stupid, stupid!" letter from Great Benefit, he says it's signed by Everett Lufkin, Vice President of Claims. Minutes later, when Donny Ray's nose bleeds on the letter, we see that it's signed "Russell Krokit, Senior Claims Supervisor". Additionally, this letter is shown as being dated April 25, 1995, while the blow-up Rudy shows during the trial (now signed by Lufkin) is dated July 7, 1996.

Revealing mistakes 

When handed a computer printout to read on the stand, Wilfred Keeley played by Roy Scheider opens the printout like a book and finds the data. Closeups show the printout is in landscape mode and couldn't be read as Keeley does. As the reading wasn't challenged by Baylor (Matt Damon) the position of the printout wasn't scripted.
