Withnail & I mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Whenever you get a shot of the car travelling along the motorway or road, the cars going in the same direction as the Jaguar are all true to 1969 - the year the film is set - but the cars travelling in the opposite direction or parked by roads are all contemporary with the time it was made (eg. Ford Sierras).

Continuity mistake: In the breakfast scene with uncle Monty, he is holding Withnail and I's hands. They both let go and stand up, and as the shot goes behind Monty's head you can see that he is still holding I's hand.

Continuity mistake: When the car leaves the motorway on the sliproad as Withnail & I first head out into the countryside, there is only one person visible in the front of the car. Withnail said he was going for a sleep, but it would have been too difficult for him to make it into the back of the car whilst it was moving.

Trivia

The bottle of lighter fluid Withnail drinks had been filled with water throughout rehearsals, but for the actual take was filled with vinegar, unbeknownst to Richard E. Grant, who plays Withnail. The director made the switch to get a good reaction from him.
