When Slevin is first taken to see "The Boss", as he is exiting the building, someone is taking a picture of him. You see his reflection in the lens of the camera. The reflection should have been reversed, but it was not.

In the beginning of the movie, after Slevin has finished shaving in the bathroom, he uses a towel to wipe off the excess shaving cream. He still has some shaving cream on his neck when someone suddenly knocks on the door. We immediately cut to a side shot and Slevin turns his head toward the knock. He no longer has any shaving cream anywhere on his neck.

Then the camera angle changes back, they are facing each other again, but her arm is not across his chest. Just after she says "Scotland forever," the camera angle changes again, and suddenly Slevin's arm is not under her.

Factual errors 

When Goodkat is shooting two silenced pistols at the men coming through the wall, the pistol in his left hand has a bent silencer. It is obviously bent down at about 15 degrees and would be dangerous to the shooter if shooting anything but blanks.

When Max and his son are sitting in the car at the racetrack, the vehicles are parked too close together. There is only about eight or ten feet between rows of cars. There is no way a driver would be able to maneuver a car out of a parking spot.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Slevin tells Lindsey that he has 'Ataraxia' which is a condition characterized by freedom from worry or preoccupation. The entire movie is based on his preoccupation with revenge.
