Continuity mistake: When Ashley Judd is telling her friend on the street that she might be having second thoughts about going back to Gregg Kinnear, the shot goes back and forth between the two actors.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ashley Judd and Hugh Jackman wake up together in her bed, her left shirt sleeve is rolled up.

Continuity mistake: Both Eddie and Jane cannot sleep. They end up in the kitchen eating Chinese food. At one angle, Eddie is feeding Jane holding the noodles in his left hand, then the camera changes angles and suddenly the noodles are in Eddie's right hand.

Continuity mistake: In the meeting just after Ashley Judd has worked out that "D" is Diane, Diane asks her where they stand. In the wide shot both her hands are in her lap, but when we cut to a closer shot suddenly she's fanning herself with a bit of paper that's come from nowhere.

Continuity mistake: At one point, after Jane finds out that Diane is "D", they are in Diane's office for a meeting. For one camera angle, Diane is leaning back in her chair with her feet up on her desk. The next shot shows Diane, feet on the floor, seated up to her desk. Again the angle changes and Diane is "kicked back" again.
