What about Bob?

Continuity mistake: When Bob is in the coffee shop waiting on the call from Dr. Marvin he chases an older man away from the phone. The rope for the fish jar hanging around his neck is twisted around once or twice. The camera cuts away from him then back to him and then the rope is twisted around seven or eight times. (00:27:15)


Continuity mistake: When Bob and Dr. Marvin are interviewed by Good Morning America the book Bob is holding changes positions between shots. The changes of position are not possible from shot to shot. (01:07:30)


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dr. Marvin tells Bob to "take a vacation from his problems", there are white sailboats on the lake in back of Bob but when the scene shifts back to Dr. Marvin, the boats are gone, then they once again, magically reappear.

Jeanne Perrotta

Continuity mistake: When Leo starts coughing, we see Anna start to get up and go to her right, meaning that she'll pass behind her mother's chair. It then cuts to Siggy for literally a fraction of a second, then to the mother. But Anna is never seen in frame behind her mother at any time.


Continuity mistake: Leo Marvin is at the window watching Bob 'leave' and he is holding the newspaper in his left hand. Then he waves and it is still in his left hand. When he walks towards his family it is in his right. He could have switched, but that is some pretty fast switching.

Continuity mistake: As the camera crew drives away, the shadows on the driveway change dramatically when the family starts walking back up the steps.

Continuity mistake: When the camera crew leaves, the Jeep is in the driveway. However, when the camera crew arrived at the house, the Jeep was not there. Look between the arriving crewmembers as they walk up the steps to see where the Jeep is eventually parked.

Continuity mistake: When the Marvin family is shopping for food in preparation for the GMA crew, the amount of food etc. in their carts is much more than the amount of food etc. that they carry out of the store in paper shopping bags.
