Anachronisms 

When the camera zooms in on the newspaper article detailing the story about the film crew coming to the small town of Embry, Indiana to film a movie, the website www.embrystar.com is clearly visible under the name of the newspaper - the article was supposedly written and published in 1982, eight years before the first website existed.

Character error 

When Harry discovers a small pistol in the glove compartment of Perry's Mercedes, Perry refers to it as a Derringer, and even specifies (by way of a joke) that it only carries two shots, as Derringers invariably do. However, it is clearly visible as a North American Arms mini-revolver.

When Harry and Harmony are talking in the Domino Room, Harry points out the punk rocker who resembles Steven Seagal saying "at your 11 o'clock", on her left, but he points and she looks to her right.

Continuity 

The license plate of a car being pursued changes from 3DW0489 in one shot to 3MX0149 in the next. It wouldn't be so easily notable, but the characters are talking about writing it down.

When Perry and Harry are on the rooftop having an argument, Perry puts his hand across his mouth to shut Harry up with his right hand. The next shot centering on Harry has Perry's left hand on Harry's mouth, and the shot after that returns to having Perry's right hand on Harry's mouth.

Revealing mistakes 

The book that Harmony takes off the shelf at the party is entitled You Wouldn't Want to Live There by Joe Chester, a fictional detective novelist. When she opens the book to read it, the text at the top of the pages clearly states that the novel is Maureen Child's The Man Beneath the Uniform, a 2004 Silhouette romance novel.

When Harry answers Perry's mobile phone towards the end, the screen of the phone is clearly visible. Instead of showing "Harmony Calling" which would be correct, the phone display simply shows the phone book entry for Harmony instead.

Towards the beginning of the movie Harry is obviously nicked in the arm when his robbing buddy is shot. When he runs into the audition room, there is an obvious hole in his jacket with blood coming out of it, but when he removes his jacket it reveals a totally undamaged shirt save for a blood stain on it.

Continuity 

When Harmony appears at Harry's hotel room and begins talking about how it wasn't her that died, but in fact her sister, she swipes an empty champagne glass from Harry's hand, trying to drink from it. However, the glass actually had some liquid left in it only half a second before hand after Harry had finished taking a rather large swig.

Revealing mistakes 

After Harry and Perry begin moving the the corpse from Harry's hotel room, the length of the corpse becomes significantly shorter once they get into the hallway, and remains shorter as they heft it into the trunk of the car. This is given away from the actors tucking the blanket too tightly around whatever prop they were using.
