Shallow Hal

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.

Suggested correction: This is deliberate. When we see the cake with a large slice taken out of it, we're seeing it as it really is, as Rosemary has taken a large piece. When we see the cake with only a small slice taken out of it, we're looking at the cake from Hal's perspective.

There is no indication we're seeing it from "Hal's perspective." Hal even mentioned "where does she put it", meaning he knows she took a big piece. In addition, the smaller piece missing is still a pretty big piece and the large missing piece is seen after Rosemary left and then the smaller piece is seen, both times from Hal's point of view. So for this assumption to be valid, the missing piece should be considerably smaller from Hal's point of view and seen immediately after Rosemary left when Hal looks at back at it.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Hal is confronting the two guys that made fun of Rosie he points to Rosie outside the restaurant and her shoes change from brown and black clogs (which is what she was wearing throughout the scene) to a plain black slide. Watch, it is totally obvious because they show her shoes several times before they suddenly change.

Continuity mistake: After Rosemary cuts the cake, she lays the knife down and in the next few shots the knife changes position from laying down to sitting up back to laying down again.

Continuity mistake: About the cake - not only the size of the slice changes, but the type of cake too. In the first shot, it appears to be vanilla on top, chocolate on the bottom. Second shot, it is all chocolate, and the third, it is chocolate on top and vanilla on the bottom.
