Bedazzled

Revealing mistake: In the scene when Elliot speaks Spanish, there's a mix of different Latin American accents, and what he is saying does not make much sense to a Spanish speaker.

Revealing mistake: During the opening sequence we see a lot of things happening very quickly and sped up. Everything is going in a progressive direction, not going backwards. As the sun rises in San Francisco a clock on a building is shown. The hands on the clock are going backwards instead of forwards. This was shot at dusk, not dawn, then reversed. (00:02:25)

Continuity mistake: When the Devil is a teacher in the classroom she is erasing homework assignments off the board. In the close up shots (and maybe 1 or 2 of the far away ones) the board's partially erased. In most of the far away shots however, the board isn't erased. (01:01:50)

Question: In the scene where Elliot signs the contract, there is a magnificent red fountain pen on top of the papers. Does anybody know what the pen is, or if it is even a real commercial pen?

Answer: It definitely is a Montegrappa Oriental Zodiac pen, this brand has been making pens in Italy since 1912. I am not sure which of the three red pens in that collection (Oriental Zodiac) is the one seen in the movie, but given its association with the devil, my guess will be it is the Ox fountain pen.
