Ghosts of Girlfriends Past picture

Other mistake: At Paul's wedding, Paul gives a speech saying that Connor was always there for him, "ever since our parents died when I was 2 and Connor was 7". However, in the scene showing when Connor and Jenny were just kids and she gives him a camera for his birthday, Jenny and Connor appear to be at least 10 years old - certainly not 7. Connor tells his ghost, "that was the summer before my parents died". The scene that follows shows the parents funeral, with Paul sitting next to Connor, and Paul appears to be about 5 or 6 years old - but much older than 2.

It's Complicated picture

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin are sitting on a lawn swing. The number of chains supporting the swing varies between shots. Sometimes the back stay is a single chain and sometimes it is a double chain.

Suggested correction: The swing supports never change. There's suspending chains on both sides of the bench; both chains are each attached to another chain with (2) connection points, one on the lower front and one on the upper back (4 points total on the bench).
