Continuity mistake: As they all sit down to have dinner Lydia covers the lovebird's cage with a cloth. After the birds fly from the fireplace we see the birdcage again and you can tell by the edges that the cloth is in a different position even though no one went near it.

Continuity mistake: The phone booth changes when Melanie is in it during the bird attack later in the movie. Here the green part on the bottom has three vent slits per row, later when the fire is behind it you can see four vent slits per row.
