Frank Costello: Okay.
Frank Costello: But Colin - I hope I don't have to remind you that if you don't find that cheese-eating rat bastard in your department, most likely it won't be me who suffers for it.

(at around 38 mins) Early in the film, when Sullivan switches SIM cards in the phone booth, he has a Sprint RL7400 cell phone, which doesn't use SIM cards. The SIM card is also placed in the phone upside-down.
The title doesn't appear on screen until nearly 20 minutes into the movie.
