The Big Chill

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene where Nick and Sam come upon Richard having a midnight snack in the kitchen you can see a small bright whitish reflection of some kind of equipment in the top left (our left) kitchen window, down in the lower right corner. There is no character movement or other scene related explanation for this reflection. It moves and fades during the scene, most dramatically at the end of the scene. (00:37:20)


Visible crew/equipment: A wire is hanging from the back left pocket of John Hurt that leads to the microphone pushing up from under the goldfish colour tea shirt while walking with Kevin Klein down the road. (01:33:30)

Visible crew/equipment: Early morning jogging scene with Kevin Kline and William Hurt. As they are walking towards the camera on Hurt's left side, our right (the side closest to Klein). Level with Hurt's waist the wiring to his power pack working his mic is visible. Confirmed in DVD extras.

Continuity mistake: While Nick and Harold are jogging and discussing the possible buy out of Harold's business they are completely surrounded by fog. For 18 seconds they discuss this further in close-up. When they return to wide shot the fog is completely cleared up around them and is only visible in the distance now. (00:38:35)
