Punch-Drunk Love

Revealing mistake: When Barry is arguing on the phone with the Healthy Choices employee, the map on the wall behind him is creased in the Texas/Arkansas area before he punches it there. This could perhaps be the result of a previous take or some sort of indication of where the soft spot in the wall is so that Adam Sandler doesn't really break his hand. (01:00:25)


Revealing mistake: When Barry is in Hawaii at the phone booth - notice they tried to cover up the Verizon logo, presumably to avoid free advertising, but it's still partially visible.


Continuity mistake: After their first meeting Barry is watching Lena while she is walking away. He is holding a coffee mug in his hand with the handle away from the hand. When the camera angle changes as he goes back in he is holding the mug by the handle. (00:05:45)
