State and Main

Corrected entry: In the shot that had the camera peering down into the bag of cash, you can clearly see that the money is motion-picture-use money--it says so on the money. This is a particularly confusing faux pas because it is supposed to be real money, but if you see that it's motion-picture-use money, that changes the plot.

Correction: Exactly. One: the production was running out of money, so to overcome their problem, they use fake money to bribe the guy. Two: the 'good' guy is bribed to drop the charges, but they trick him by using fake money.

Continuity mistake: Joe and Annie are running in the rain to her shop and they pass Bucky, the firehouse dog at the firehouse. Joe and Annie go into her shop and you can clearly hear Joe firmly close the door. Shortly after, they are about to kiss and Bucky jumps up between them. They take him outside and the door closes behind them, locking them outside. If the door automatically locks when it closes, how did Bucky get inside in the first place?
