Wonder Boys

Continuity mistake: When Trip passes out at the Wordfest, and he wakes up with Sarah standing over him, watch her hands. Every time they switch shots, her hands switch back and forth between holding a cigarette and a box of cigarettes, to her simply having her hands at her sides. (00:28:35)

Continuity mistake: When James washes a codeine pill down with liquor he spits it at Tripp's chest. In two successive shots you see first liquor spraying at Tripp, then a sole pill flying at him, but liquor neither in the air nor on his coat. (00:25:15)
