Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) Poster

Goofs

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?" You then see his lips ask "Gary?" again, but you only hear him say it in the next shot of the smoking hair. The original region 1 version has the sound in sync with the lip movement.
When Tom speaks with Nick the Greek about buying weapons, Nick the Greek is playing a fruit machine. We hear the sound, but the machine clearly isn't working.

Character error 

When Dog describes Golf as a "way to spoil a good walk" he attributes the quote to Winston Churchill. The quote "Golf is a good walk spoiled." is generally attributed to mark Twain although it first appeared in 1903 in a book by H S Scrivener.
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.

Continuity 

During the closing sequences of the film where Tom is seen wearing a woolen hat, his long hair is visible at the back in many shots. This is despite his character having short cropped hair throughout the rest of the film. (see trivia)
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.

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 you don't see Bacon 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.
