Audio problem: When Hal is talking to Katrina, after he's been de-hypnotized, in the over-the-shoulder shot of him facing her, we hear him talking but his mouth doesn't start moving until he turns to look away from her.

Audio problem: In the restaurant, when Hal is standing at the hostess table asking about the booth before Mauricio calls on his cell phone, you can see the hostess' reflection in the small mirror or window next to her and the movements do not match. The mouth in the reflection opens to say yes before she does.

Continuity mistake: When Hal's co-workers bring him a cake for his promotion, Rosemary takes a slice out for herself. They change shots a couple times, and the size of the piece missing from the cake changes several times, and the layers of the cake change as well.

Question: For years I've wondered about the scene where Hal meets Rosemary's doctor friend Dr. Sahid (in the children's hospital). Unless there's a cut or deleted scene I'm not familiar with, there's no relevance to the plot with meeting the doctor since he's never seen in the rest of the movie (therefore not knowing if his real appearance is different) - everyone else in the whole movie that Hal never met before ends up with a different appearance after the spell wears off (including men). Can anyone answer this?

Answer: I think he was in the movie to reinforce that she is a genuinely nice person and that she had a wide circle of friends who appreciated her.
