Corrected entry: When Tom and Jane are arguing at the airport before he leaves on vacation, he tells Jane the plane is boarding at Gate E2. The camera cuts to him walking toward the gates and you can see the sign with an arrow for Gates E1-4 pointing to the left, yet Tom turns right and we never see him correct his mistake. (01:57:15)

Correction: It is established numerous times in this film that Tom is not the sharpest tool in the shed. Just because we don't see him correct his mistake doesn't mean he doesn't do so eventually.

Continuity mistake: When the William Hurt character is talking to Holly Hunter after her boring lecture, the first shot (from behind Hurt) shows him walking backwards while talking to Hunter. As he continues to walk, he comes perilously close to banging his head on an archway. Yet, on the reverse angle, Hurt has been repositioned about five feet from where he was.
