The River Wild

Deliberate mistake: When Wade "hits" Roarke for telling his parents about the gun, it's very obvious that his hand doesn't come near the boy's face.


Continuity mistake: On the first evening of their trip Gail talks to Tom about his work. You see her resting her chin in her hand, but when the camera angle changes her hands are down. (00:17:05)

Gail: Are you makin' a pass at me?
Tom: I don't know, is that what it's called this far outside of Boston?
Gail: This far inside of marriage, you mean.
Tom: I think we're sufficiently alienated for this to qualify as a pass.

More quotes from The River Wild

Question: After Wade seemingly kills Tom, Terry scolds him, saying he had said at the start of the robbery that no-one would get hurt, but now three people (a guard, Frank and "Tom") are dead. Why does Terry wait until the "third" death to have it out with Wade?


Chosen answer: He's finally had enough of Wade's increasingly psychotic behavior and no longer trusts him. As a result of Wade's actions, their entire plan is unraveling. Terry likely knows that Wade will probably kill him as well.
