One Hour Photo

Factual error: The Point & Shoot Camera Sy uses throughout the movie (Minolta Freedom Zoom 150) has a lit in-viewfinder readout. The real camera does not have any fancy readout, just a thin circle to help center and frame your image.

Factual error: When Sy is watching the Simpsons in his apartment, the clips we see, while all from the same episode, are spaced further apart than what we see. [Some people say they're from different episodes - a mistake regardless.] (00:17:05)

Continuity mistake: When Sy is following Nina and Jake after he put the picture of the husband cheating in with Jake's pictures, the cars pull over to the side of the road. If you watch when they pull over, you see that they pull over next to a down sloping hill that is nicely green with grass and a few sporadic trees. But when they show Sy's car in the rearview mirror, you see that they are now pulled next to a large up sloping hill that is covered in leaves, dirt, and a lot of trees. (00:53:40)

Bill Owens: Sy, there's a 1000 other places where you can do your photos. There's no reason to come all the way down other than to fuck with me.
Sy Parrish: There's a very good reason. I calibrated that machine personally. It's the best mini-lab in the state.
