A River Runs Through It

Corrected entry: While seated in a booth, Brad Pitt, Craig Sheffer and Emily Lloyd take turns imitating movie stars Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney even though the film takes place during the 1920's, when silent films were the norm and years before either Bogart or Cagney were to make their screen debuts.

Correction: The film actually depicts three different time periods, spanning over two decades. The scene in which Emily Lloyd and Brad Pitt are imitating Bogart and Cagney is supposed to take place around 1937, the third and last time period of the movie with the brothers together.

Continuity mistake: When Norman fishes with Paul for the first time after returning from Dartmouth, his fly reel changes three times in one scene. The first view of the reel it's a brand new Pflueger reel. The next view it's a worn and beat up reel. And the final view it's a Hardy reel.
