Trivia: In the scene where the boss tells off Sy for being rude to the technican, you can see the photos of the employees on the wall. As we see later, Sy's photo is the one in the second row at the very right. In this first scene his photo is tilted while all other photos are perfectly straight. In another scene later in the same room, a security man holds the photo in his hands and asks for a copy. Both scenes were shot together and the photo was improperly put back to the wall, which explains why it is tilted in the preceding scene although it was not supposed to be taken off the wall by then.

One Hour Photo mistake picture

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.

More quotes from One Hour Photo

Question: The photo that Sy got off the market stall, (the old photo of a women) he said to Nina that, that was his mother, was it his mother, or did he just say that to make himself feel better, and if so, why would he lie about that?

Answer: It wasn't his mother. He was just trying to fit in and make himself feel better. There is a scene earlier of Sy buying the photo at some type of vendor. Maybe a swap meet.
