Tuck Everlasting

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Winnie and Jessie are going swimming, when Winnie takes off her dress, you see that her right foot was not completely out of the dress. Then in the next shot, you see Winnie jump in without moving her dress at all, and it is far away from her on the rock.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Tucks are having dinner with Winnie, after she was brought to their house, there is a shot of her as she says,"My father has plenty of money." On the far right of the screen you see Angus Tuck lick his fingers and make a downward motion with his hand. Then there is a shot of Angus and he says,"Your father will cut down the entire forest..." and you see him making the same motion of licking his fingers and so on again.

Audio problem: Early in the movie when we first meet Winnie, the audio is out of sync.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Winnie's dad meets the man in the yellow suit for the fist time, the man in the yellow suit's white collar (left side) keeps changing positions. First it's up, then, it's down. This happens a few times in this scene. (01:30:15)

Revealing mistake: Winnie gets angry at her parents and runs out of the house. As her father stands up and she runs past the camera it wobbles, shaking the screen a bit.

Revealing mistake: When Winnie and Tuck are out in the canoe, and are being spied on, look at the shot that shows the profile of the guy's eye looking through the binoculars. His mascara is clumping.

Revealing mistake: In quite a few scenes in the movie, Winnie appears to be mouthing the lines of others.

Continuity mistake: When Winnie and Tuck are sitting in the boat out on the lake and he's talking to her, it shows Tuck talking and the camera is behind Winnie. You can see part of her hand like she is blocking the sun from her eyes. Then it goes to show the front of her and her hand isn't there. (01:28:00)

More quotes from Tuck Everlasting

Question: Winnie (Alexis Bledel) runs away from her family and stays with Mae Tuck (Sissy Spacek) and the Tuck family. Winnie's family organise a search party to look for Winnie. Ben Kingsley (The Stranger/Man In Yellow Suit) also seeks Winnie and the Tucks, as they have secret information he wishes to acquire. Ben Kingsley finds Winnie and the Tucks. He threatens and intimidates them with a loaded revolver, even manhandling Winnie and holding the revolver barrel at Winnie's head. Sissy Spacek is standing behind Ben Kingsley. She hits him on the head with a rifle butt, killing him. At this point the search party converge on the Tucks' home. They see Sissy Spacek kill Ben Kingsley, so she is arrested for murder and sentenced to be hanged. Would any court find Sissy Spacek guilty of murder? She was obviously acting to defend her family and Winnie from an evil man with a loaded gun.

Answer: It depends on the court. If the court believed killing the man was not necessary to save Winnie (ie. if a judge thought he was outnumbered and the men could and should have wrestled the gun away from him); then yes. A court could still find Mae Tuck guilty if they believe death was an excessive use of force in defending Winnie.
