Beautiful Thing

Corrected entry: After Sandra is done hitting Jamie and they're sat on the living room floor Jamie says "Why am I weird?" Sandra tells him "Give it a rest", then he says "Well you said it." She hadn't. In the original play script she does call him weird, but when the script was adapted for film the line must have been left out completely or left on the editing room floor.

Correction: The line must have been modified for emphasising the little tongue-fights between mom and son. After the two have an argument Jamie asks Sandra if he's like his father, to which she replies that he's not (because Jamie's father used to beat Sandra) and he's like her. So Jamie teases her and asks her "how am I weird?"

Continuity mistake: Jamie steals a gay magazine at a newsagent. Before he pinches a copy, there are three copies on the shelves. When he pinches it the number of copies on the shelf indeed changes from three into two, but when he leaves the shop, lo and behold, there are three copies on the shelf again. (00:42:15)

Sandra gangel: Now you just remember I won a year's supply of toilet freshener for making up that poem. That took brains and artistry, that did.
