Corrected entry: Towards the beginning, Kevin Spacey walks in on Petal changing clothes, asking her if her friend had left. Petal is pulling on a tight pair of blue jeans. A second later, she walks out into the hall and she's now wearing a leather miniskirt.

Correction: Petal doesn't leave immediately: she puts the pair of tight jeans on (08:48), then, because she cannot button them up, she pulls the jeans off (09:10), then she puts the leather miniskirt on (09:24) and she leaves after meeting Bunny and opening a can of beer (09:44). More than a minute passes between trying on the jeans and leaving in a miniskirt.

Continuity mistake: When Quoyle and Bunny sit at the table in their yard talking about life and death, there is no space between their bodies. In one shot one can see their backs as a reflection in the window, with a gap of about 10 inches between them. (00:16:00)

Trivia: When Quoyle shows his aunt and her assistant the front page of the paper he has just started to work for, his aunt says, when she sees the picture of a large yacht with all the sails up, "They took off without paying us for all the work we did." The assistant says, "When you find them and write about it, you can get the Pulitzer." The author of the book, E. Annie Proulx, actually got a Pulitzer for the book, "The Shipping News."
