Corrected entry: In the restaurant scene, just before Hal is "mentally rescued" or returned to his normal way of viewing women by his friend, the booth Rosemary is sitting in breaks. As she is on her back, Hal and another restaurant patron run to her rescue. At this time, Hal is still seeing Rosemary as her pretty Gwyneth self. Hal and the restaurant patron pick up Rosemary with no problem whatsoever. They pick her up as they would someone as skinny as Gwyneth Paltrow. Because of Rosemary's great weight, they should have had great difficulty in picking her up from the broken booth.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Hal and Rosemary are walking home (where she first meets Jill), they walk past a window and you can see Rosemary's true figure in the reflection of the window. But, in the scene where Hal first introduces Rosemary to Mauricio, you can see her shadow on the floor, and it's a thin shadow of her "inner figure". There's no explanation as to why her shadow is thin but her reflection isn't.LittleWildman
Corrected entry: Hal's father in the hospital bed describes the perfect woman for Hal. It can be heard that the word "can" has been dubbed over the actor saying "ass".
Corrected entry: When Rosie is on the diving board if you look close enough you can see the water cannons in the water. Plus Rosie jumps completely over the cannons. (00:46:05)
Corrected entry: There's no way anyone working for the Peace Corps in a tropical third world county would be morbidly obese like Rosemary or Li Boy. First of all they wouldn't get in as physical fitness is required considering the difficult living arrangements and lack of First World amenities. Secondly, they wouldn't have access to the amount or type of food that allowed them to get so heavy in the first place. Thirdly, the heat, humidity, walking, and most likely intestinal ailments would get rid of quite a bit of that weight.
Corrected entry: When Black is taken to the hospital to see the kids (and he's still seeing the inner beauty), Paltrow asks if they want to play the kissing game. There is a boy in a dressing robe who shouts "yes." along with the others, but when Paltrow asks "who wants to go first?" the boy suddenly changes his mind and says "not me".
Corrected entry: In the scene where Hal enters the Children's Hospital (we know that because of the shot of the hospital sign) to find Rosemary, he asks the people at the information desk where he can find her. The first women says that Rosemary works in Pediatrics & the second women tells Hal that pediatrics is on the third floor. Actually "pediatrics" means "children" so EVERY floor in a children's hospital is pediatrics.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Hal shares a cab with the woman from Boston, Hal ends up giving the woman his number so she can call him. Later when they meet again, she asks Hal why he hasn't called her, but Hal doesn't have her number.
Corrected entry: In the scene toward the end of the movie where the spell has worn off and Hal is on a date with the hot girl from across the hall, Rosemary and her family walk in. The mother is thin, as we've seen her throughout the movie, and Rosemary is fat. Later, at Rosemary's going-away party, we learn that the mother is overweight as well. So, shouldn't we have seen her as overweight when she was walking into the restaurant? We saw everyone else as they really were.
Corrected entry: When the guru guy performs his magic on Hal inside the elevator he tells him that he will now see what's inside instead of judging people by their outside looks, which would mean that if a person is mean and shallow on the inside they would look very ugly on the outside, for example, his best friend would have to look extremely ugly since he is so shallow, but only the ugly people look beautiful in the movie.
