Errors in geography 

It is constantly suggested that Max works in 30 St. Mary Axe, one of London's best known recent buildings designed by Norman Foster, which has a radial plan with a strong diagonal diagrid frame wrapping the exterior wall. The interior shots of the firm take place inside a standard rectilinear office building with regular columns. (See Basic Instinct 2 for scenes that appear to have been filmed inside 30 St. Mary Axe.)

Anachronisms 

The blue inflatable armchair in the swimming pool wasn't probably on sale when Max was a child.

When Maximillian as a child selects from the various vintages of wines, he chooses 1983, which would make him closer to 35 years of age in present day, not the 45 or so that he appears to be.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Max is playing tennis at La Siroque, the sound that the tennis racquets make does not correspond with the type of old racquets they have. The sound is from a modern tennis racquet.

Character error 

Max asks his cousin Christie where she got the "Halston" at the Duflot's dinner party. The dress she wears in the scene is actually made by modern day Los Angeles cotton manufacturer American Apparel.

When Max gets to the D3 needing Gemma's help, he is less than 40km from his meeting with the Notaire Auzet. When he gets to the intersection he is facing south and the sun is to his left, meaning it is morning and his appointment was for the afternoon, giving him plenty of time to arrive at his destination. We are shown him by a tree telling Gemma to reschedule and this would not have been necessary.

The sunburn marks on Christie Roberts do not match the bikini she was wearing at the pool.

When Christie Roberts finds the scorpions in her window in the morning, Madame Duflot races to her aid with a whisk broom. When she gets there, she starts hitting the scorpions with a fly swatter.

Fanny Chenal's eyes are blue (and quite striking) as an adult, but the little girl that plays her has brown eyes.

When Fanny is knocked off her bike, she falls on her back. Later she shows him her bruise, but it is on her right thigh.

When Max is in bed after taking a shower, his hair is placed on his forehead. But in the next shot, when he gets up, his hair is combed to the sides.

When Max is trying to reach to his cell phone after falling accidentally in the empty swimming pool, the cell phone is spinning as it vibrates during a call (the cell phone's antenna is towards Max), but in the very next shots, the phone is turned 180 degrees counterclockwise (the antenna is not towards Max).

Factual errors 

Max plans his date with Fanny for Sunday night- on the day of the date we see his assistant Kenny losing a lot of money trading on the bond markets in London which are of course closed on a Sunday!

When Gemma calls Max in France she gets a British ring-back tone. She should have heard the French 1 second on 4 second off ring-back tone since it's the receiving end sending back the tone.
