Factual error: When Bridget is walking to work (this occurs twice in the film, where I noticed the mistake) she goes through Piccadilly Circus. The next frames show her crossing Tower Bridge, as if it was just over the road. As anyone familiar with London will know, this could take the better part of an hour to walk this far.

Suggested correction: Assumes the camera should be filming the whole walk, which would be plain stupid. If a film shows someone going to bed and then it's morning in the next shot, you don't call that an error.

Agreed, this is a simple case of cutting the journey short for the purpose of saving film time. As the correction says, no different from seeing a character go to bed and wake up.

Continuity mistake: When Bridget is getting dressed for her big date with Daniel, her tights are over her undies; later, when he's going up her skirt, the tights are clearly under her big ugly undies. (00:17:50 - 00:26:00)

Mark Darcy: I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences... But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are.

Trivia: Shirley Henderson is the same actress who plays Moaning Myrtle in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." An interesting tidbit: Moaning Myrtle is always crying and putting on theatrics, and Jude (in this movie)..."spends most of her time trapped in the ladies' toilet crying..."

Question: When Bridget and Daniel are in bed at the hotel, she says "that thing you just did is actually illegal in several countries". Anyone know what she was talking about? I assume it's a sex thing and I'm dying to know.

Answer: I'm pretty sure you can assume she's talking about anal sex, which is still technically illegal in a number of countries.
