Wonder Boys

Character mistake: In the scene where James Leer (Tobey Maguire) is getting dressed in Crabtree's room, we at first see James wearing just a pair of white underwear. The scene cuts away from him for a couple of seconds, and then cuts to him again, only this time he is wearing black pants. He couldn't possibly have gotten dressed that quickly. (01:21:40)

Character mistake: James Lear is described as a Sophomore Lit major in the first scene, and at the end of the movie at Word Fest as a Junior.
