Continuity mistake: When at the Men's Association, Mike Wellington raises a glass and toasts Stepford. He does this with his left hand. When the shot changes to show all the men, he is still doing it with his left hand. But when the shot changes back to Mike, the glass is now in his right hand, with no time between shots to change hands.
Mike Wellington: My real name isn't Mike, it's just a nickname from where I used to work.
Joanna Eberhard: Where?
Mike Wellington: Microsoft.
Ted Van Sant: NASA.
Vic Stevens: Disney.
Stan Peters: AOL.
Joanna Eberhard: Is that why the women are so slow?
Trivia: The original cut of the movie made it clear that the wives had been replaced by robots. After test audiences hated this revelation, Frank Oz decided to do re shoots to make the wives simply humans with microchips in their brains. With the elimination of a sequence featuring an out-of-control Bette Midler robot and other scenes, this created numerous plot holes and inconsistencies. In a 2007 interview, Frank Oz admitted that the decisions he made were wrong and the film tanked because he "didn't follow his instincts".
