When Ray and Mitch are talking about seeing Eddie Lomax, Ray says that he is a private investigator in Little Rock. But it plain by the meeting between Eddie and Mitch, that Lomax is in Memphis, not Little Rock.
In the scene when Mitch is at the Cayman Islands, and is talking to his new client Sonny Capps about tax representation, there is a line that had a strange overdubbing. Mitch's line "You'd feel like you were fucked with a dick big enough for an elephant to feel it" was re-shot for television. In the TV version, the line was replaced with "You'd feel like you had a prostate exam with a beach umbrella to feel it."
