The Birdcage

Plot hole: There's no way for Albert to show up at the front door as Val's mother the night the Keeleys are there, as the only way out of his bedroom (which he is still in by the time the Keeleys show up) is through the door that leads into the living room where the Keeleys, Val and Armand are.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, when Val tells Armand he is going to get married, Armand drinks his whole glass of white wine. But in the very next shot where Armand stands to get another glass of wine, you see that the glass is almost half full.

Question: When Senator Keeley thinks that the Goldmans are acting weird because of Senator Jackson's death and Albert replies to him about how it's dreadful news etc., did Albert know about Jackson's death, or did he just improvise on the spot?

Chosen answer: Most likely, he improvises on the spot, dodging and recovering, as he did all the way through the scene.
