Corrected entry: When Truman is going about his normal life, it shows the angle of the camera on his ring. However, when Truman escapes his normal life, they for some reason never think of checking this camera. It would have saved them a lot of trouble...

Correction: He'd already broken up with his wife and already figured out something was up, he most likely wasn't wearing the ring anymore.

Corrected entry: When Truman is looking into the mirror in his bathroom and we see him front on, you can see that there is a shelf of shampoo and bathroomy type bottles sitting on a ledge beneath it. When the camera cuts to show Truman actually standing in the bathroom, there is no shelf at the bottom of the mirror.

Correction: The camera is inside the cabinet, looking through a two-way mirror, so we're seeing the bottles inside the cabinet. As such, from the outside we can't see them.

Corrected entry: In the shot where Truman Burbank buys a ticket for the ferry, the camera inside the small house changes: there is no "Open" sign in the window with the venetian blind, but in the very next shot you can see the "Open" sign in the window.

Correction: The open sign is actually on the opposite window. You can see this when he first walks up to by the ticket. The side showing says closed.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Truman sees the wedding picture and he realizes Meryl has her fingers crossed, her wedding ring is on her right hand, not her left. In other scenes, she wears her wedding ring on her left hand.

Correction: She changed the hand it is on between the time of the picture and when we see her.

Factual error: When the bus breaks down, steam is shown coming out of the front of the bus. GMC buses have the engine and radiator in the rear.

Question: If Christof didn't want Truman to escape on his boat, rather than trying to kill him with huge waves, why didn't he just leave the water completely flat? With no wind Truman would not be able to reach the edge and leave, but he still would've lived.

Answer: He'd been hoping the waves would discourage Truman and make him turn back. It's a lot easier to agitate water than it is to calm it, so by the time he saw it wasn't working, even if he's thought of that, it would have been too late.
