Continuity mistake: In the scene where Frank puts Rachel to bed. He moves some dolls aside by pushing them, and the dolls fall over. In the following shot, where Rachel is in bed, one of the dolls is sat up straight. (00:40:00)
Continuity mistake: In the scene at the Miami hotel, when Rachel and Portman are in her bedroom, someone gives Frank a fresh drink of orange juice. He takes a deep sip, the camera cuts to Rachel's bedroom door, and when it cuts back to Frank the glass is even fuller than when he got it. (01:05:20)NancyFelix
Continuity mistake: After Frank has moved into Rachel's garden house he comes to check Nicki's apartment. When he looks at a wall with some photographs there's a close-up of an old picture of Rachel and Nicki performing. In the close-up there is a pattern of light and shadows on the wall which was not only not there in the previous wide shot but which is also only visible on the wall and not on the photograph.

Continuity mistake: The bar scene of Rachel's and Frank's date contains a lot of editing flaws: 1) Rachels position switches between both arms down and chin rested in hand, 2) in one shot from the back we see her lifting her glass to her mouth, but when the camera angle changes she's not drinking, 3) the way Frank holds his glass switches between full hand and thumb plus two fingers, 4) Rachel's bangs change between straggly and fluffy.

Continuity mistake: At the end of their date Rachel and Frank come to his place. We see her checking out his basement with a wine glass in her right hand. When she picks up a picture from a shelf she holds it in both hands without having put down the glass before. A little later we see the glass standing on the left side of the shelf where she obviously couldn't have put it down. Finally, when she takes the sword from the wall the glass has miraculously moved to another shelf. (00:52:25)NancyFelix
Continuity mistake: At the end of Rachel's and Frank's date the camera pans from the sword over some of his basement items on the shelves to the couple nestled between the sheets on the sofa, where Rachel states that never in her life she has felt as safe. However, when they wake up in the morning they are lying in his bed upstairs, and Frank opens a window that overlooks the garden. Considering their obvious comfiness downstairs this change of location can't be explained. (00:55:45)NancyFelix
Continuity mistake: The birthmark on Rachel's upper lip undergoes some make-up related changes throughout the movie. However, it shouldn't have disappeared completely between the moment she says good-bye to Frank on the airport and when she sits in the plane a few seconds later. (01:56:45)NancyFelix
Continuity mistake: When Frank is in the pool house watching Rachel's music video, one minute he is leaning forward in his chair to watch it, and the next you see him sat back in the chair and then he starts to lean forward. (00:29:40)
Rachel: But I can't go out on a date because you have to be with me every minute. I mean, what if he wants to invite me up to his place afterwards? Are you gonna come too?
