Goofs
Jim Bravura has a detective's badge, and is frequently called a detective. Yet the door to his office and the name plate on his desk identify him as a lieutenant. In the NYPD, he would be called a lieutenant, even if he was assigned to a detective squad.

When Natasha Sax (Olga Kurylenko) is in Max's bed she has a sheet covering all the way down to her undergarments. On the next shot the sheet is lifted revealing her abdomen.

The position of Max's wife's body on the bed changes at least twice.
