Notting Hill mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When William takes Anna back to his flat, after the orange juice incident. His shirt is stained, she comes into the flat and changes. Then she leaves. When she returns to get her books, his shirt is still stained but after she kisses him the stain is gone. An impressive kiss...

Continuity mistake: Every time they show the outside of the bookstore, on the left you see the same adult drying a child's tears.

Continuity mistake: In one scene in the bookstore, there are three copies of a guide to Germany on the table next to Hugh Grant. In one clip, there are three spines, in the next two of the books have been turned round.

Continuity mistake: When Will leaves his bookstore to get a sandwich and some orange juice there is a poster stand in front that hadn't been there when he arrived.

Continuity mistake: When Will detects Rufus the thief on the monitor only the picture in close-up shows him in action. All other shots show him at a different place on the left side of the screen.

Continuity mistake: Despite the passage of time, every time we see the back of the door in the book shop the same post is visible in the basket.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where they are all having a farewell dinner at Tony's restaurant. At the end of the meal they are all scattered around the restaurant, the camera is on Bella and Honey and in the background, outside the restaurant, 4 extras walk past, 3 at the front and one behind. The next shot is at the window where Max and William are sat, again the 4 extras walk past in exactly the same order and positions. They are the same people because one of them has a pink top on and you see that twice.
