The Royal Tenenbaums

Other mistake: Royal and Etheline are walking in the park and it is written in the book. But it's also written "Childrens play in the trees". They are alone in the park. There is only Henry Sherman at the end and a dog on the other side of the pond.

Dr Wilson

Other mistake: After everyone finds out Royal does not have cancer, Chas storms over to the yellow phone. You can see Chas is making movements as though he is pushing buttons on the phone to make a call, and there are accompanying button pushing noises. However, when he's finished, you can see it is a rotary dial phone.

Continuity mistake: When Margot is telling the story about how she lost half her finger it shows her putting the log up to be cut and it shows her left hand on top of the log. But when the shot moves out to show when her finger gets cut off, her right hand is suddenly on top of the log.

Trivia: Although filmed in New York, director Wes Anderson didn't want to include any of the city's landmarks, particularly its famous skyline. In the scene when Royal and Pagoda meet in the park on the waterfront (Battery Park), Anderson went so far as to place Pagoda so he blocked any view of the Statue of Liberty in the harbor.
