Errors in geography 

When Lieutenant McDonagh is driving with the witness to Biloxi he crosses the Mississippi River over the GNO bridge going the wrong direction. The view of the twin smoke stacks (also visible in Get Shorty) indicate he is heading to the west bank of the river. The only non-circuitous route back to the east bank would be via ferry routes that were not restored at that time and run through St Bernard Parish.

Factual errors 

Only one of the "iguanas" featured was an iguana. The other lizard was a bearded dragon. The two species are not related and come from opposite sides of the world (iguanids originate in the Americas, whilst the bearded dragon originates in Australasia).

Nicholas Cage's character bets several times on college football games featuring Louisiana. The state has several universities with football programs, however there is no Louisiana University. There is a Louisiana State University (LSU) but they are never referred to as simply "Louisiana".

Plot holes 

The film is set "six months" after Hurricane Katrina, putting the action in the movie occurring sometime around February 2006. In the film, Terence McDonagh continually bets on college football games, though in reality the football season is over by the time the action supposedly takes place.

Revealing mistakes 

When Big Fate and his crew shoot up the three guys who are after The Lieutenant's money, you can clearly see one of the bodies on the office floor move a finger when the iguana approaches him.
When arriving at the RTA with the alligator a string/wire can be seen moving the animals leg.

For the bet on the "Lousiana"-Texas game, Louisiana is a 6 point favorite and McDonagh is betting ON Louisiana which means he expects them to win by MORE than 6 points, not less. Had he wanted the score to be less than a 6 point spread he would have bet on Texas.
