Riding in Cars with Boys

Corrected entry: When Beverley is sitting on the toilet and crying and telling Ray about how awful things are going for her she is holding a cigarette. Next shot her hand is out of view then she waves it around and there's no cigarette. Next few shots and she stands up and there's absolutely no sign that a cigarette was even in that room.

Correction: Just having watched this movie, if you go back and listen after she is handed the lighter and the shot pans back to Ray you can distinctly hear her lift the lid, the cigarette being thrown in the toilet (you can hear the sound of it being put out in water) and the lid come down. Then the camera comes back to her she puts her hands up and to her face.

Corrected entry: In the beginning, Bev is picked up by Jason, who throws her big box into the back seat of the car. When Jason leaves Bev at the roadside store, the box is still in the back seat. It must not have been very important to Bev.

Correction: We dont know whats actually in the box. For all we know it's stuff she planned on giving to Jason. And even if she did leave it in the back seat doesnt make this a movie mistake.

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the sidewalk where Bev is pretending Faye is her mom (and she's practicing to tell her mom that she's pregnant) the same people walk by several times. I don't think there was a single shot-reverse-shot sequence that had the right people walking by at the right time. You saw the same couple, for example, walk by at least four different times.
