When Dale and Saul are sharing the "cross joint" near the beginning, they each smoke a different joint. The joint that Saul smokes is obviously thicker than the joint that Dale smokes, but they are acting like they are sharing a single joint.

While Dale is on top of Red with the door, they keep jumping from place to place on the floor. First, Red's head is in the sink, then its next to the sink, then farther, then closer. Even the sink itself jumps from sides that it fell on. Sometimes it's on its back, sometimes not.

When Mr. Anderson is shooting at Saul & Dale, there is a small flash in the lower cupboard door as the charge is set off. A bullet/buck shot would not create this flash.

Factual errors 

Several solders within the military bunker are armed and not wearing cover hat indoors. Military rules clearly state that all armed personnel shall wear a cover when under arms.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Ted Jones has no connection to Dale until Saul tells Red Dale's full name. The degrees of separation only lead him as far as Saul. Therefore, Dale and Saul could have just hidden out at Dale's apartment from the very beginning. However, Dale can't be certain that the murderers didn't see him or his license plate, so it makes perfect sense that he'd want to stay away from his apartment.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Budlofsky and Matheson have never seen Saul, nor has Saul seen Budlofsky or Matheson before they see each other with Bubbe, so they shouldn't recognize each other by sight. However, the context and behavior of both parties makes it easy to guess each other's identities on the spot.
