Anachronisms 

Ray's head wound was sloppily stitched by his father but there was no sign of this for the rest of the film.

Much is made of the Travolta character carefully selecting the perfect antique frame, mixing his own pigments using raw minerals, etc.. None of this has any effect on the plot. Travolta admits he will not create an exact copy, and regardless, the forgery is never inspected.

Boom mic visible 

When Ray and Will meet in Will's bedroom the boom mic shadow is visible two times. First, on the wall above the guys when they were talking, and then the shadows are above the door when Ray is leaving the room,.

Character error 

John Travolta's character Raymond Cutter is supposed to have a Boston accent which isn't very believable when he does it and he also goes in and out of it through the movie.

Continuity 

In the diner where Ray brought his son Will they receive their order overly quickly It couldn't even have been able to start being made in that short of time. Also when she brings them their plates, with Ray's order she says it's a burger with no onions when you heard him asking for it he just asked for a cheeseburger he never made extra specifications incidentally when you see it it does have cheese on it. When Ray goes to put ketchup on it you see him with the bottle in his left hand and almost about to pop the cap with his left and the next shot from the back you you hear the pop of it opening but it ends up emerging from the right side like he was doing it the exact opposite way, switched hands incongruently. When shot back from the front his plate is turned 180 degrees on the table and he's holding the top bun randomly in his left hand when it already been taken off previously.

When Ray beats up Finn in the bathroom of the diner it hardly looks like Ray punches him with any much force under his arm. And when it shows the outside of the door he only may have had time for a couple more punches at the most. Later when he goes to see Keegan at his place Finn opens the door with a huge Red mark around his eye and mouth which I don't find he could have inflicted that damage with what happened it looked unbelievable.

Plot holes 

When Ray is explaining to Will why new oil paints cannot be used to forge an old painting (19th Century), he (correctly) mentions a big reason is because of air pollution from the 20th Century caused tiny little black specs in the new paints. However, he does not mention 1 very important reason: Any oil painting made prior to the first atomic bomb, which was detonated at Trinity Island in the Pacific Ocean plus all subsequent atomic explosions caused sub-atomic particulate matter to be formed in all new paints (and paintings). This is a key test which can be done to determine positively if a painting was made before or after the first atomic bomb. Also, this is a very expensive test.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

Just before the end of the film, Ray Cutter, plus his father and his son, all fly to the South Pacific. Since Ray is on parole, he would not be allowed to leave the state, much less the country; or the entire continent.

Revealing mistakes 

Around 76 minutes, "Pops" Keegan sprays fluorescent paint on the back door keypad of the museum, then shines a small black light over it; revealing which numbers have fingerprints on them. He then punches a 4 digit code in, and it opens the door on the first try. Since he (somehow) knew it was 4 digits, there are 24 possible combinations to hit the numbers in the correct sequence. This is highly unlikely (24-1). Additionally, virtually all museums change keypad codes frequently. This is clearly a mistake (if not 2 or 3).
