Along Came Polly

Continuity mistake: When Reuben and Sandy are talking in the street after the play disaster, and Sandy is telling Reuben about the fake E! True Hollywood Story, Reuben's tie keeps changing. In one shot, the tie has a dimple and is in a full windsor knot, and in other shots, the tie has no dimple and appears to be in a half-windsor knot.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben and Lisa lie on the beach he goes through the real-estate page of his newspaper. He draws a circle around one of the ads at the top of the page, but when we see a close-up of the page the circle is somewhere down towards the middle.

Continuity mistake: For the arrival at St. Bart three different planes are used: The shadow on the ocean belongs to a single-propeller machine, the following close-up shows two engines and an antenna on top of the cockpit, and when the plane lands the antenna is gone and the engines are much smaller.

Continuity mistake: After Reuben's arrival in Los Angeles, where he is supposed to meet Leland van Lew, he sees him entering the service elevator. They go up to the rooftop together from where Leland does a base jump, using a parachute that he is wearing under his jacket. However, when we saw him at the ground floor there was nothing under his jacket: in the front the belt should have been partly visible, and also the bulge in the back wasn't there.

Continuity mistake: While Polly is showing Reuben her ideas for the children's book, her arm and bracelet positions change as the view switches from behind to in front of her, and back.

Continuity mistake: In one of the salsa club scenes, when Polly asks Reuben when kind of guy he really is, a group of chatting people appears in the background behind Reuben between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben and Polly go to that Latin club to dance, after he's had salsa lessons, you see the guitarist pointing to encourage him. Now, he looks as if he's a left-handed guitar player, but a minute later you see him in the background playing right-handed. If you look for it, you can see that his guitar is a Gibson, and on the "lefty" scene the logo on the headstock is obviously reversed, which means the shot got mirrored in post-production.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben catches Lisa in the act with Claude, the first thing we see are one of her flippers flapping against a metal rod. When we see the culprits in toto, their feet are too far away from the rod to touch it.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben carries Lisa over the doorstep a chameleon falls into her lap and he drops her on the ground. Although she falls on her back the bruise we see at the beach is at the inner side of her thigh and looks like a rape mark.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben and Leland go to the roof and Leland prepares to base jump, after he takes his jacket off, the parachute straps across his chest are undone. In the next shot they are properly fastened.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Reuben tries to catch Poly before she leaves for good, he sees from a distance that she climbs into a taxi. He starts running after her but stops at her house, when he sees the taxi turning around the corner and realizes that he can't catch her any more. In this last shot of the taxi the street scenery is totally different, for example there are two big trucks on both sides of the road which weren't there before, and it must be the same road because Reuben sees her from her house from where she started.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben and Polly are in the cabin of The Roo Shooter they are having an argument. Behind Reuben is a clock, in each shot of him the time on the clock changes.
