Factual errors 

When Sergeant Sisk, played by John C McGinley, enters the Mayor's party in full dress uniform, he is wearing police ribbons & awards of the Los Angeles City Police Department along with US Military ribbons and awards. The first ribbon below his name tag and to the left is the Police Meritorious Service Medal, the second medal is the Police Star, the first green, yellow and red ribbon in the second row is the Police Distinguished Service Medal followed by an unknown ribbon and another unknown ribbon. The third row left is the US Marine Corps Pack Leader ribbon, the middle one is unidentifiable, with the third one being the the US Army Service ribbon. The police medals should be in this order: the Police Distinguished Service Medal, the Police Meritorious Service Medal followed by the Police Meritorious Unit Citation followed by the Police Star. The order presented in error is: two, four, one, three.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Plot holes 

Rianna is revealed to be one of the "experimental procedures" but has no scars to show for it. Nor does she show any telltale signs throughout the movie, nor recognize Marvin as a fellow freak. It seems like the writers "tacked on" the twist without fixing the rest of the movie for consistency.
