Working Girl

Other mistake: When Katherine reserves a room at a hotel she talks German. From her weird diction it's obvious that Sigourney Weaver has somehow memorized the text without actually knowing what she is saying. (00:21:50)

Suggested correction: Sigourney Weaver apparently knows German, so this mistake is wrong. Also, it sounds like she is conversing in German like a natural, and it sounds like conversational German to me.

Continuity mistake: When Jack carries a drunken Tess up to his apartment after their first meeting and he unlocks the door, the lock is on his right. When he opens the door, it opens as if the lock is on his left.

Suggested correction: It only appears as if the lock is opposite because Jack is standing to the left of the actual door not in front of it. When he walks in he would be moving right to walk in.

Audio problem: When Tess meets up with her boss toward the end at the helipad, notice that the helicopter engine sound is playing, but the props aren't turning. Helicopters blades always turn if the engines are running, just like an airplane.

Cyn: Sometimes I sing and dance around the house in my underwear. Doesn't make me Madonna. Never will.

Trivia: A then unknown Kevin Spacey has a cameo early in the film. He plays Bob Speck-the guy that Tess has an "interview" with in the limo. This is also one of the last films that you can see his large cheek mole in. He had it removed between See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Dad. Now all that remains is a small scar that can be seen when caught in the proper lighting.

Question: If Jack and Katherine were a couple, how is it that Jack doesn't recognize Katherine's office when he goes there to confirm him and Tess to start working on the Trask deal?

Answer: Unless Katherine had recently moved to a new office, which it does not appear that she did, then Jack should know this was her office. However, it is also possible that he had just never been there before and they only saw each other outside of work. When Jack went to see Tess, he had a specific business reason for going there.
