Can You Keep a Secret?

Continuity mistake: Second part of the conversation when Emma right away spills the 'secret' to Lissy; forgetting the fact that they both have refills for their drink (we just assume they had one off-camera not shown), the wine in Lissy's glass changes level from shot to shot several times (for instance when she listens to Emma once she answered about the dead guy it empties in mid-air, or when she suggests to "do it at work", the glass is refilled in the reverse shot).

Continuity mistake: During the business meeting with Emma's boyfriend talking about Millenials, when he says "Your Grandpa is not our target demographic", keep an eye on the woman with the shaven head; she is playing with her pen in Emma's reaction shot but her hands are perfectly calm and flat on the table in the shots before and after.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the meeting, Connor says to Jack "I thought you said WE should kiss." The lady to the right of Cybil has her hand under the table, but in the next shot when Jack "No"s him, she is scribbling on the notepad, on the table. (00:35:00)

Continuity mistake: Cybil tells Emma "clean up your desk" and turns around. Emma freaks out about it; Cybil's hand is coming from a high position, while when she started the turn in the previous shot, she dragged her arm away from a waist-high divider. (00:15:35)

Continuity mistake: Gemma joins Emma and Lissy once her 'coworker' left. She takes Lissy's glass picking it from the top, but in the following shot she is holding it by the side of the cup. (00:22:35)

Continuity mistake: A tipsy Emma puts her feet up in first class. The flight attendant tells her that it's unacceptable; her right hand is high-low-high again between shots. (00:08:05)

Continuity mistake: When Emma is with the clients at the beginning of the movie, Doug's ginger pen once he mentions 'rebranding' is either in his hand or on the notepad, depending on the angle of the shot. (00:04:10)
