Goofs

Continuity 

In the scene in which Naturelle tends to Monty's facial wounds, Naturelle is wearing a sweatshirt which reads "COVENTRY" (the prep school from which Monty was expelled). Near the end of the scene, Naturelle steps into the kitchen to fill a plastic bag with ice. As she enters the kitchen, her sweatshirt suddenly has two letters reversed. It reads "COVETNRY."

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Monty expresses his disgust against Pakistan originated immigrants, the magazine cover placed on taxi cab's cabinet beside a Pakistani flag wasn't a Pakistani one, rather it was a Bangladeshi tabloid with Bengali font and their actors in it.

Character error 

When Kostya is waiting outside Monty's apartment catcalling the women that walk by, he refers to himself as Russian: "I make you half-black half-Russian baby" We know from other scenes in the movie that Kostya is Ukrainian and does NOT like to be confused with Russians.
The tattoo on Nikolai's hand means "I'll survive" (not "to survive" as he says). Besides, it is misspelled (in the 3d letter).

Continuity 

In the scene with Uncle Nikolai he cocks the handgun on his table, which pulls back the hammer. Monty is then given the gun, and when he puts it to Kostya's head he pulls back the hammer again.
After Jacob finishes his champagne at the table at the dance club while drinking with Monty, his glass suddenly refills itself.
When Monty and Naturelle meet for the first time in the movie she's leaning forward to pet the dog, who's standing in front of her. In the next shot the dog is behind her back and Monty has to raise his hand holding a dog's leash over Naturelle's head to let her pass through.
In the scene where Monty asks Francis to "mess him up before he goes to prison" Francis begins to punch him in the face with his right fist, and then alternately (in the far away scenes) he is using his left fist.
The style of Monty's goatee changes between his conversation at the trophy case and arriving in Jake's classroom.
Naturelle's Puerto-Rican-flag leg tattoo, discussed and obvious in the bath, is absent in the stoop scene which would have taken place just a few months later.
When Mary and Mr. Elinsky are sitting alone Mary's hair is continuously hanging down in her face. At one point she sweeps it behind her ears, but when the camera cuts back her hair is hanging just as before.
When Monty writes his name on the window he makes the top of the "Y" very narrow; as they are driving the top of the "Y" is wider.
When Barry Pepper and Phillip Seymour Hoffman are discussing the "bachelor rating" system, Barry's arm (and beer) jumps around between shots.

In the scene with Nikolai, you hear Nikolai rack the slide, but the hammer is not back in the next shot. The camera then looks away (at Monty) and then back at Nikolai, and you can clearly see the slide is locked back and the gun is out of battery.

(at around 57 mins) During Jacob's and Frank's dinner together, the clock in the restaurant keeps shifting between shots, even though it is supposed to be one continuous scene. At one point the clock reads 11:35, and at another it shows about 9:40.

Factual errors 

In the interrogation scene, the DEA agents inform Monty that he will sentenced under New York's draconian "Rockefeller Drug Laws." But given the arrest by a federal agency (DEA), prosecution by the U.S. Attorney, and sentence to a federal prison (Otisville), the case is clearly federal. New York law would not apply.
The scene in which Frank is awaiting for the Unemployment data shows a New York City afternoon time of 2:15pm. Unemployment rate information data is released on Friday morning at 8:30am New York City time.
When Monty expresses his disgust against Pakistan originated immigrants, the magazine cover placed on taxi cab's cabinet beside a Pakistani flag wasn't a Pakistani one, rather it was a Bangladeshi tabloid with Bengali font and their actors in it.

Miscellaneous 

When "uncle Nikolai" points a gun at Monty saying that "it never jams"- it actually jams. When he cocks it you can see that the slide is open and when he turns it you can see that there is a round sitting sideways in ejector. His scene partner looks at it, his attention drawn to the gun.
