Other mistake: When the girls leave camp they wave good-bye to each other. If you look closely it is obvious that one of the girls (the one in the distance waving) is a double who does not look like Susan / Sharon at all.

Suggested correction: No one is waving in that scene. As a matter of fact, the one "in the distance" can't wave because both hands are holding suitcases. They kissed goodbye, not waved.

Revealing mistake: When in Boston, while walking through the park, Susan and her mother are obviously walking on a treadmill because the park background is moving way too fast for their walking speed.

Question: What kind of judge would agree to this kind of custody arrangement?

Answer: None. It's total fiction made up solely for the purpose of the movie. Even for a movie, it's far beyond the "suspension of disbelief" that siblings would ever be divided up between the two parents, and neither would have no contact with them, much less be prevented from knowing they had a brother or sister.
