Best romance movie mistakes of 1996
Continuity mistake: When Uma Thurman visits the radio station for the first time, she asks Janeane Garofalo if she can sit down by the microphone. As she's standing in front of the desk she's wearing a cardigan with a handbag over her shoulder. When she turns round to say "you promise not to laugh?", the cardigan and bag have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie he is not taken onto the hockey team. After he is hustling at the driving range he goes to toughen up. As he is toughening up, Chubbs unplugs the machine. The kid tries it, but he never plugged it back in and the machine still manages to work.
Continuity mistake: Jamie steals a gay magazine at a newsagent. Before he pinches a copy, there are three copies on the shelves. When he pinches it the number of copies on the shelf indeed changes from three into two, but when he leaves the shop, lo and behold, there are three copies on the shelf again.
Continuity mistake: When we first see Daniel in the taxi and the guy jumps in the back, when Daniel removes the steering wheel from the car the armrest has all four electric window switches present but when he changes the wheel whilst driving with Emilien in the back for the first time, the armrest only has one switch meaning a right hand drive modified car was used in motion shots. Hard to spot but its there.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore are in the car and he's threatening to run over her son, who is riding a bike in front of them, Alec swerves at the last minute, and Demi looks over her right shoulder and collapses in relief, but in the next shot, she's looking over her left shoulder, collapsed in relief.
Continuity mistake: When John Travolta is showing the young boy how to tighten the air filter top, he makes sure the boy gives the wing nut an extra twist. Next he notices a car coming up the road and he leaves. When the FBI agent comes over and looks inside the hood of the truck, the air filter top is again off, the air filter is out and the carburetor is exposed.
Continuity mistake: At one point, Claire Dane's friend announces her plan to pick up guys on the beach by wearing the skimpy blue swimsuit she models. She then says that she bought one for Claire Dane, and pulls another g-string from her shopping bag. The suit is red, yet when Claire Danes is strolling down the beach in it, it is now a dark plaid.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jjaks and Freddie escape and are driving in the red car, she opens the bottle of champagne and takes a drink with her right hand then hands it to Jjaks with the same right hand, but when the camera cuts to Jjaks, she is handing it with her left hand.
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Clark drives his car to the inner city school, he asks a punk where the faculty parking is. The punk points to the parking lot and as John drives away all of his tires are blown out by road spikes (he goes through a wrong way road). When he gets out of the car, notice that some of his tires have mysteriously reinflated themselves.
