Goofs

Character error 

When "the neighbors" are torturing some unknown criminals - the leader is standing on one guy, hitting golf balls at another guy who is hanging upside down in his underwear. The first golf swing is using a metal wood, then he asks for a five iron. However, the club handed to him is clearly not a five iron, but another metal wood.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

In the director's cut, when Kenny and Gary have stolen the guns and the old man shoots a hole in Gary's hair, Dean says, "are you all right, Gary?" His lips ask "Gary?" again, but is only heard in the next shot of the smoking hair. The original region 1 version has the sound in sync with the lip movement.

Character error 

When Dog describes Golf as a "way to spoil a good walk" he attributes the quote to Winston Churchill. The quote "to play golf is to spoil an otherwise enjoyable walk" first appeared in 1903 in a book by H. S. Scrivener.

When Tom is explaining the cheque scam to Soap and Bacon, in the last shot of Soap and Bacon the liquid level has lowered in the glass in front of Bacon but Bacon is not drinking from it. In the same shot there is also an extra cigarette butt in the ashtray although Soap doesn't stub out his cigarette.

Factual errors 

When Rory Breaker's henchmen visit the dope house in the evening or at night (it's dark), they find J who has come around and screaming in pain. Which means that the police still hasn't come to the house. This is highly improbable, since there was a shooting there during the day. Dog's men had fired shots with the very loud Bren gun in two separate occasions, and Gloria also fired it after them, emptying out the magazine. Even if there was nobody else in the building, the shots would've been heard from at least a couple of blocks away, and the police would have come.

Revealing mistakes 

As Tanya, the dealer, is explaining the game of Three Card Brag she completes the initial deal. She accidentally exposes the bottom of the deck which would be visible by all players as a 7 of diamonds. This should have resulted in a misdeal.

When Hatchet Harry and Barry the Baptist are killed, neon lights can be seen against the dark background through the window behind Harry, but they would only be visible at night, though the event occurs in daytime as seen in the next shot outside the building when Eddie and Tom enter.
