Corrected entry: In the beginning of the film, when Trip introduces Hannah in a voice-over, he says that she is always "compulsively clad in red cowboy boots. I had in fact never once seen her without them." If Hannah was simply just one of his students, this statement would be true, but since Hannah rents a room off him, there would be occasions when Hannah would not be wearing her boots at all. When Trip asks Hannah if he can borrow her car, for example. (00:04:00)

Correction: When he asked to use her car, she was wearing the red cowboy boots, and also, the morning after the drink excursion, when she had just woken up, still stretching in a sleep night shirt, she had the cowboy boots on there too.

Corrected entry: When Tripp, Crabtree, and Antonia arrive at the Gaskells' home Sara comes down the hallway with an almost empty wine glass. While they are talking she holds the glass in the right hand. Then her dog comes to attack Tripp, and when she grabs him at the collar the glass is suddenly in her left hand, and has changed to an almost full champagne glass. (00:08:20)


Correction: I have watched this scene dozens of time. In each instance, first when she starts to fall and prof. Tripp catches her, she is holding a martini glass, clear liquid, large olive in glass. When she asks Crabtree to take the dog and also hands him her drink it is the same martini as all other instances.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where James Leer is getting dressed in Crabtree's room, we 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)
