Continuity mistake: Susie, a six-year-old girl, leans over a bathtub and reaches for a rubber duck. She falls into the tub but it obvious the tub has no water. (The actress, Terry Burnham, landed on a pad or cushion.) Immediately after she falls, there is a very noticeable jump in the film. Then water splashes up but the splash is much too high to have been made by the little girl. The next scene shows the mother entering the bathroom and the little girl, now completely drenched, standing up in the bathtub.
