6 corrected entries

Correction: I watched this scene several times and could not see any part of a pair of shorts, black or otherwise.

Corrected entry: When Connie and Paul make love in the cafe bathroom, we see Connie return from the bathroom like nothing even occurred. However, if she and Paul just got done making love, wouldn't she be all sweaty and out of breath? Even if she wiped her face off, you should still be able to see that she was sweating. Same with Paul.


Correction: That was a quickie. Which means it happens quick. Which also means they probably didn't get at it for long enough for her to break a sweat. And she didn't run a marathon: catching back her breath would not have taken more than a minute or two.


Corrected entry: Constance's phone number (974 555 0703) is written down on a paper in Paul's apartment. The area code 974 does not exist in New York or the USA. In fact, the number 974 is the country code for Qatar. (01:23:00)


Correction: The area code is actually 914, which is the area code of Westchester county.

Corrected entry: After Edward kills the boyfriend, it seems that the family is having Thanksgiving dinner. However, the rest of the movie appears to be in the spring time. When then cops come to Edward and Connie's home, they are working in the garden, and bring up the parking ticket she got "4 weeks ago" in SoHo. It just seems that the dinner scene is out of place, since it could not have been fall/winter if they were working in the garden.

Correction: Who says its not a normal Sunday dinner? You can eat turkey any time of year.


Corrected entry: When Connie is leaving Paul's apartment to pick up her child she goes to get in her car and you see a parking ticket on the windshield which is dry. In the next shot she gets into the car and the windshield is wet as if it had been raining prior to her entering the car.

Correction: Connie was in such a hurry, that she probably accidentally hit the wiper blade mechanism, which also activates the washer fluid. Look closely and you will see.

Corrected entry: When Richard Gere hits the book dealer in the head there is no way hitting him on top of the head would have killed him because the part of the brain that controls heart, lungs etc is at base of the skull. Even if the brain stem was in top of the skull the snow globe would shatter way before it fractured the skull. It would have had to be almost solid glass.


Correction: There was no indication that the blow to the head by the snow globe had killed the book dealer. The book dealer could have been simply knocked out due to the blow, and then died from blood loss.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning the wind is blowing very hard and Richard Gere and his son are having problems getting outside. Two seconds later, when Diane Lane is looking at them through the window, there is no wind.

Paul: There is no such thing as a mistake. There are things you do, and things you don't do.

More quotes from Unfaithful

Question: The final scene in the car at the red light in front of the Police station. They are discussing escaping to Mexico for the rest of their lives. They hold each other. The car doesn't move. Do they give themselves up to the police? Is that what the writer is implying?

Answer: Although Connie wanted them to go to Mexico and assume new identities, it is implied that Edward, who initially goes along with that idea, will likely turn himself into the police. However, there's no definitive ending given, so the audience is left to interpret the outcome.
