While You Were Sleeping

Continuity mistake: When Lucy and Jack are walking along the river, a long shot shows them approaching a lamppost with a kissing couple. In the next shot, they pass the lamppost but there is no one there. They finally pass the couple at the next lamppost. (00:46:55)

Suggested correction: The couple is there. They are walking one lamppost before the couple in the long shot, and they are walking very slowly. In the close-up, it shows them just passing the lamppost before the couple. When they do pass the next lamppost, the couple is there as they were in the long shot.

Continuity mistake: When Lucy and Jack are moving the couch into Peter's apartment, Lucy gets bumped and falls into a table, knocking over a vase of flowers. (This table and vase are located directly below a mask on the wall.) Earlier in the film, when Lucy enters Peter's apartment for the first time (to feed the cat) we see her slowly entering the living room in the same area where she later falls - the mask is there, but the table and vase of flowers are not.

Suggested correction: When Lucy first enters the apartment, you can see the mask on the wall, however, they don't pan down far enough where you could see the table. However, when they show her with Jack behind her and the mask on the wall after she knocks over the vase, you cannot see the table either.

Continuity mistake: When Lucy is in the Callaghan's house at Christmas at the very end of the scene it shows her stocking and her name on it is in white letters. However, in the scene where Mary comes in and tells the family that Lucy is pregnant, the camera pans to Jack who is standing right beside Lucy's stocking, only this time her name is in black letters.

More quotes from While You Were Sleeping

Question: I've seen this movie a million times and I still can't figure out the whole "Peter having one testicle because another guy had a pencil in his back pocket because he was a lawyer while they were playing basketball" thing. I got that they were playing basketball but still, can someone please explain to me how Peter lost a testicle while playing a game? Thank you.

Answer: Peter was being boxed out by the other guy, so the other guy was putting his back against Peter's front. With a pencil sticking out of his back pocket, you can imagine how some damage might be done.
