Revealing mistake: When Aurora sees Breedlove off at the airport they say good-bye and he walks through the door, which closes after him. After a few seconds she comes back to talk to him once more, and you can see through the tinted glass panes that he had been waiting right behind the door to come out again. (01:44:20)


Revealing mistake: When Emma is about to have her flu shot, the doctor grabs her arm and says, "You have a lump under your arm." He neither looks nor touches under her arm.

Suggested correction: Actually if you watch closely the Dr. does indeed touch her arm and actually feels her underarm telling her there is a lump.

He actually says, "You have a lump in your armpit" rather than "under your arm" and he is indeed feeling her armpit.

Continuity mistake: Shirley MacLaine returns to the hotel from tending Debra Winger, who is dying in the hospital. When McLaine enters the motel lobby she is wearing one skirt and blouse outfit, but after stopping to check at the desk and going through a doorway to the pool area, she emerges with a different skirt and blouse outfit on.
