Continuity mistake: After the argument in the coffee room following the stapler fight you can see that, when Hugh leaves, the stapler is by the coffee pot next to where Hugh was standing, although Sandra had already taken it to the other side of the counter (where you also see it in the last shot of the scene).

Continuity mistake: When Lucy is pushing the elevator button to George's penthouse in her bridesmaid dress, she's wearing only one glove. When she's in his closet helping him pick out clothes and giving her 'two weeks notice', she's still only wearing one glove, but now it's on the other hand. (00:25:40)
Continuity mistake: When up on the roof eating cake, it focuses on Lucy speaking. In one shot she lowers her fork to her plate, then she raises her hand to her face quickly. But then in the next shot her hand is down by her plate and she once again raises her hand, now holding her fork. (00:37:15)Hamster
Continuity mistake: When Hugh Grant and Alicia Witt are in the elevator with the elderly couple, they elevator stops to let Alicia off, but Hugh pulls her back on. The elevator supposedly continues on up to Hugh's apartment, but it never moves. You can see it moving BEFORE the first stop, but never again. (01:12:35)
Continuity mistake: When Hugh Grant is visiting his brother, after he tells him they are tearing down the community center, the brother changes into his pyjamas. He puts on the pyjama top and it is unbuttoned, then the camera changes to Hugh Grant, then goes back to the brother within a few seconds. When it goes back the buttons are done up. (01:05:05)
Continuity mistake: When Lucy and her parents are talking on the street, Lucy says "Wait a minute, our community centre! My community centre!" When and after she says this, the Forbes magazine she has goes from being under her arm, to in her left hand, then into her right hand between shots. (00:04:55)Hamster
George Wade: This whole project is worth about 50 million in profits.
Ruth Kelson: No offense, but I think it's immoral for one person to acquire that much wealth. How do you sleep at night?
George Wade: Well, I have a machine that simulates the sound of the ocean.
Larry Kelson: Do those really work?
George Wade: Oh, yes, quite well actually.
