Continuity mistake: During the beach scene John holds a clear mug where you can see the liquid. Later the mug turns black and opaque.

Suggested correction: If you watch carefully as the mug comes into shot you can see it is still the same clear mug and you can see the liquid. However, when John moves the mug (still in the same shot) so that he is holding it with both hands it appears opaque. Jack's mug is also less obviously clear in this shot. The illusion appears to be due to a changed camera angle compared to the earlier shot in which both mugs were see-through, possibly combined with a change in the natural light.

Peter Harrison

Continuity mistake: When Deborah tells Jack he must go to LA to make a ton of money his right arm is extended or not depending on the shot.

Suggested correction: This is a deleted scene. It is in the extras on the DVD but it is not part of the movie.

Peter Harrison

Continuity mistake: Before Jack plays "Let It Be" for his parents, he talks to his dad who is holding a coffee mug. His left hand goes from holding the mug to down at his side in the next shot.


Continuity mistake: During the performance of "Help!" on the rooftop at the beach, the weather changes from cloudy to sunny (and vice versa) instantly in different shots.

More quotes from Yesterday

Trivia: In the talk show dream sequence, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are introduced, and there is a shot of their two pairs of feet, one of which is barefoot. This is a reference to the cover of the album Abbey Road in which Paul is the only Beatle barefoot.


More trivia for Yesterday

Question: When Jack plays Let It Be the second line refers to "Mother Mary." Wouldn't that seem odd to an Indian family?

Answer: Considering there are close to 20 million Catholics in India and Jack seems to be pretty assimilated into English culture (his name is Jack after all), it probably wouldn't seem that remarkable.
