A Time to Kill

Corrected entry: Sandra Bullock first arrives in the film by driving into town prior to the trial of two rapists. After her arrival, the victim's father Samuel L Jackson (Carl Lee) kills the rapists in open court. When Matthew McConnaughey later asks Bullock why she's in town, she says "Carl Lee", yet at the time of her arrival she can't have known who Carl Lee was as he hadn't committed any crime.

Correction: She's referring to why she's staying in town, not why she came into town in the first place.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Sandra Bullock character is in the hospital and the nurse revealed to her that Carl Lee was innocent, look carefully at the TV. You can see Jake, Harry Rex and Lucent standing outside the courthouse, but in the very next scene they haven't even left the courtroom.

Trivia: In one of the courtroom scenes, the judge refers to Sandra Bullock as "Lois Lane." Around the same time this film was being made, Bullock was heavily considered to play the role of Lois Lane in Tim Burton's Superman Lives, but the movie was canceled just weeks before shooting.
