Continuity mistake: When Hellen kisses Madeleine at the party, the lip-mark is further to the right than it should have been, taken from the position of Hellen's head during the kiss.

Answer: Ernest painted Madeline's eyes before she came down the stairs. He even notes that the balance in her eyes were messed up.

Answer: Actually, they're both wearing coloured contacts. If you look at timestamp 01:17:23 when they say "Pleeeaase" to Ernest, you can see they're both wearing contacts.
