Continuity mistake: In the first scene, Duncan is sitting to the right side (if we are looking at him) of the back seat of the station wagon. When they are taking the luggage out of the car, there are now bags piled up in the seat on the right side.
Factual error: When Diana's father's surgeon shows Diana around the hospital, they end up in an operating room and they are both wearing street clothes. Problem is there are doors in every hospital where operations are performed and no-one is allowed past those doors without wearing scrubs, paper hats, booties and face masks, no matter who you are - they have to keep the operating rooms as clean as possible.kh1616
Factual error: The black Range Rover used throughout the movie has the wrong licence plate. The third and fourth numbers on the plate (UK spec licence plate) are '0' and '9' which refers to the vehicle as being a 2009 spec. The Range Rover used in the movie was discontinued in 2006 and was replaced with the face lifted model which the one in the movie is not.
Audio problem: When the Police play "Roxanne" for Hilly, the actors are just lip-syncing to the studio version; though his laugh has been edited out, the atonal piano chord at the beginning of the song, a now-famous gaffe from when Sting accidentally sat on a keyboard during recording, still remains.Cubs Fan
Plot hole: The premise of the movie is that a group of this man's genetic offspring have united to learn his identity. He receives a stack of the bios of those in the lawsuit. One of the children he visits is severely disabled in a nursing facility and would not have been capable of joining the lawsuit.
Factual error: There is a shot in the movie showing the outside front view of the Apple Head Office building. At the bottom of the screen it states the year (1981 or 1982). As the year is posted on the screen, a Chevy Cavalier drives into the shot in the foreground parking lot of the property. The Cavalier's style/shape and front headlights reflect that of a 1992-1994 model car - not a car from 1981 or 1982. (01:04:20)
