Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When the police officer starts to tell Schine that he'd better not be in the alley when he comes back around the block, his lip movement doesn't match the words heard.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Charles is on the train platform watching the train leave, the camera moves behind him. In the reflection from the train's windows, the cameraman can be seen behind Charles.

Factual errors 

Each time the Chicago Metra train pulled into Union Station, the PA announcer kept saying that it was the end of the red line. The CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) uses color coded routes, and the Metra system uses actual named routes (Metra Milwaukee District North). Also, the view of the train entering the city shows it entering from the south, but Charles' briefcase tag says he lives in Wilmette which is north of the city.

When Lucinda and Charles are looking for a hotel the first hotel that Charles asks about is The Renaissance Hotel which is on Wacker Drive. Later when Lucinda asks the taxi driver to stop the cab the cab is again in front of The Renaissance going the opposite direction on Wacker. However, when the cab comes to a stop and they get out of the cab they are not standing out on Wacker Drive, nor in front of the Renaissance.

The Rock Island route on Metra is colored red in the system map and it services as far south as Joliet. Lucinda mentions living in Lake Forest which is north of Chicago and serviced by UP-N (Green) line.

When Dexter asks Schine for help on his baseball quiz, he mispronounces the last name of Red Sox third baseman Rico Petrocelli; there should be no "ch" sound in his name.

Plot holes 

At the end of the movie, Charlie retrieves this brief case and you are led to believe he gets his money back. The brief case is black, which was the one he gave them with $10K in it. The one with $100K was older and different, it was brown which implies he didn't get the $100K back.

Revealing mistakes 

When Charles first misses his train, it is raining heavily on the platform. As the camera pulls back, other than on the platform, it is a bright, sunny day with no rain.

After firing his P228 a couple of times, killing the new scam victim, La Roche attempts to shoot Schine. His pistol (which is clearly in battery) goes "click", upon which he is seen inserting a new magazine and then pointing the gun again at Schine, who shoots him before he can get a shot off. What no one one the set seems to have realized is that an empty pistol a) does not go back into battery, b) cannot go "click", and that c) as long as you don't rack the slide or the bolt of a gun that went "click" the probability of it firing on the next trigger pull is pretty exactly zero percent (La Roche's 228, being a SA/DA-gun, would have went "click" again had Vincent Cassel pulled the trigger).

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

(Possibly deliberate error by the filmmakers.) At the opening of the film, a character is writing in a blue notebook (the words are voiced by Clive Owen.) When this character lights the cigarette in his mouth, he is clean-shaven. At the end this character is revealed to be LaRoche, but he has had facial hair throughout the entire movie.

After LaRoche shoots Winston in the car in the back of his head, his head hits the steering wheel. When Charles moves Winston's head backward, his face is filled with blood. In a later shot of the front of the car, with Winston's face facing the side window, there's no blood at all.

When Charles is shown dropping the gun after the gunfight, he just drops it. A few minutes later, when a flashback shows the same scene, he wipes his prints off the gun before dropping it.

Revealing mistakes 

When Charles kills LaRoche, the blade is shown close along with the blood stain and the wound starts bleeding. In the next cut, when LaRoche is down and dead, his shirt is perfectly clean.
