Your mind is the scene of the crime
The dream is real.
Character Error
Dom slipped the sedative into Fischer's drink on the plane scene. The flight attendant, who was in on the plot, could have slipped it in beforehand, with much less chance of detection.

The crew busts into room 528 by kicking the door down, which should damage the lock. But it is seen that the lock is fully functional.

First scene fo this film where Saito spins Cobb's totem clockwise. When the same scene is shown at the end of the movie, the totem spins anticlockwise.

In the falling van scene, Arthur is sleeping without the headphones that were placed on his head. The headphones reappear before the van hits the water.

Factual Mistake
Shots of the falling van are interspersed with several stages of the dreams. But the van backtracks in several shots.

In the warehouse scene between Cobb and Ariadne, a Nikon DSLR camera on a desk behind Cobb disappears and reappears between shots several times.

When Arthur arrives in the hotel to get Cobb for their ride on the roof, it is dark outside, but when they are out on the roof, it is around noon.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When Cobb confronts Mal at the hotel scene, in front of the open window with billowing curtains, a crew member's fingertips can be seen through the sheer fabric.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When Fischer's cab is hijacked, numerous production markings are visible on the street which can be noticed easily.

Errors in Geography
During the chase sequence scene in Mombasa (filmed in Morocco), the cars' steering wheels are on the left. In Kenya, where Mombasa is located, steering wheels are on the right.

Factual Mistake
In Mombasa, the cars have yellow license plates in the front and back. Kenyan cars have white plates in front, and yellow plates in back.
If you take the first letters of the main characters' names - Dom, Robert, Eames, Arthur, Mal, and Saito in the order, they spell "Dreams". If you add Peter, Ariadne, and Yusuf, the whole makes "Dreams Pay", which is what they do for a mind thief.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt performed all his stunts on his own except one of his own stunts during the fight scene in the spinning hallway.

This film marks the fifth Christopher Nolan movie to enter the IMDb Top 250, along with Memento (2000), Batman Begins (2005), The Prestige (2006), The Dark Knight (2008).

The running time of the film 2 hours 28 min is a reference to the original length of Édith Piaf's song "Non, je ne regrette rien", which lasts (on its first recorded edition) 2 minutes 28 seconds to be exact.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt went to his audition wearing a full suit after a brief character summary, unknowingly matching his character's wardrobe perfectly.

During production, details of the film's plot were kept secret from others. Christopher Nolan, who wrote the script, cryptically described it as a contemporary sci-fi action thriller.

Earlier Kate Winslet was approached for the role of Mal, but she turned it down, citing that she couldn't see herself as the character.
