Wonder Boys

Revealing mistake: Michael Douglas pulls up to the curb to park his car. When he opens his door, it hits a fire hydrant, which moves! This is very easy to spot. (01:08:50)

Revealing mistake: When Tripp talks to James in the Gaskells' garden it is snowing quite a lot in the distance, but only very little at the place where they are standing. (00:14:15)


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)
