Best romance movie mistakes of 2009
Continuity mistake: During the paper cut scene, when Bella is thrown against the table, there are 5 vases of flowers and 3 sets of candles. After she hits the table she lands against one of the vases and knocks the 2nd one to the floor, but the next shot shows only one vase left upright.
Continuity mistake: In the dormitory, when lovestruck Ron is going gaga over Romilda, he is wearing a brown sleeveless tee shirt and its tan trim has many holes. When Harry brings Ron to Slughorn, Ron is still wearing that tee shirt, but now some of the holes are gone and the rest of the holes have changed position.

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.
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.
Continuity mistake: When he has the car accident, the blood splat from hitting the bird goes from being an eight inch wide bright red smear of just "blood" that is low and centered directly in front of the driver to a four inch circle with chunks that is high and to the left.It is also totally missing while the car is viewed from above before hitting the water.
Factual error: Prince Albert was not really wounded in the assassination attempt depicted near the end of the film. Eyewitness accounts differed as to whether he pushed Victoria down to protect her or simply dived for cover himself, but neither of the two bullets fired struck either of them.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Lucy is a guest at Blanche's house for the meatloaf dinner, notice what everyone is wearing, the table, etc. At the end of the movie there is another meatloaf dinner scene at Blanche's house and every single thing is identical to the first meatloaf dinner scene. Everyone is wearing the exact same clothing, eating the exact same food, drinking the exact same beer and wine, etc, and the only difference is Lucy being out of the picture with an empty place setting at the table.

Continuity mistake: When Joel and Dean sit at the booth to talk, Dean places two beers on the table such that the labels are facing the camera. As they talk and the camera switches back and forth between the two friends, Dean's beer switches orientation showing the label in some shots and not in others, despite the fact that he does not touch the bottle whatsoever. There isn't enough time between shots to allow him to move the bottle or drink any as the bottle remains full.
