Corrected entry: A little more than half way in, right after the store closes, Tom Hanks' character and girlfriend are getting into an elevator (this is the scene where the elevator gets stuck). As they walk into the elevator, Hanks says "Hello Joe" to the elevator man, whose name is Charlie. It's Hanks' character who is named Joe.
Corrected entry: This is a strange one. In the scene where Meg Ryan is just about to leave her empty store and close up for the last time, she walks past a bench and runs her hand along it. In the foreground as this is happening, (and this is where it gets strange) you see someone in all black with a white hand held to their side and a white face, run by. It's not Meg Ryan because when she walks past this mirror/window herself, you see no reflection. If it was a window, why doesn't the person appear in the other windows before and after they've walked past that particular window? It must have been someone in the background caught in a mirror, but to look at it is really creepy.
Corrected entry: When Meg Ryan and her co-workers are trying to guess why Tom Hanks didn't show up for their date, they always come up with a reason why he didn't call her. How about this: he didn't call because he didn't even have her phone number, they had agreed not to exchange personal information including their phone numbers, addresses or real names. (01:06:36)
Corrected entry: When the movie first starts, a bunch of stores are seen opening up for business in the morning. One store that is seen opening has a sign that says, "Open 24 hours". If it is open 24 hours, why is the store opening? It should already be open.
Corrected entry: At the cocktail party, Hanks and Ryan are discussing why he and the children had visited Ryan's book store. Hanks explains that they wanted to buy a book and Ryan's store was the only place where a child's book could be purchased. He then says, "That will not always be the case", implying that such books can be purchased at Fox Books after it has opened. At that point in the story, Fox Books is already open. The correct statement would be, "That is no longer the case."
Corrected entry: When Hank's father separates from his wife and arrives at the boatdock, the two men shake hands and the father says, "Welcome aboard." Hanks is already aboard - the father is the newcomer.
