Other mistake: After Edward kills the boyfriend, there is a scene where the family is having what appears to be Thanksgiving dinner. If it really is Thanksgiving, the timeline doesn't make any sense, since the rest of the movie appears to be in the spring time. For example: When the cops come to Diane Lane's house for the second time, she and Edward are working in the garden, and they remind her that she was in SoHo four weeks prior. Certainly someone wouldn't be working in the garden a couple weeks after Thanksgiving in New York, unless the line about "four weeks ago" is an error.

Continuity mistake: At the start Ed has a blue shirt on. He leaves the house with his son - when he turns to wave goodbye the shirt has turned grey.

Other mistake: When the police arrive at the house the marked police car had Ardsley Police on the side. The other vehicle was unmarked. Charlie tells his mom it's NYPD before the detectives come into the house and introduce themselves. (01:34:00 - 01:35:00)

Connie Sumner: I think this was a mistake.
Paul: There is no such thing as a mistake. There are things you do, and things you don't do.

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.

An alternative ending was shot in which Edward says goodbye to Connie in the car and walks into the police station. The director discusses this on the commentary track. The alternate ending is on the DVD.

Answer: Connie wants to say she is guilty and asks her husband to forgive her.

Answer: I think that they had already decided that Edward would turn himself in after the school event. That's why the were so sad when they danced and why they engaged in an escape fantasy conversation at the red light. They knew that the police would soon figure it out and it was only a matter of time before Edward would be arrested. Rather than live in fear, they decided that it would be better for Edward to turn himself in. That's my answer but I have two other questions that I can not answer. 1. WHY did she do it? 2. How long did the affair last? I can't figure out the season but m y guess is between fall and the end of November but I can't be sure because the seasons don't seem to be correct. Is it sunny/warm enough to plant a garden in November in NY? I don't think so.
