Continuity mistake: When Ed is taking his tie off after the meeting with the PG&E clerk, he loosens it, then they cut to Erin, then back to Ed, and his tie is back to tight around his neck, and he's taking something out of his breast pocket. Then they cut back, and his tie is off. (00:52:42)
Pennyless single-mom Erin forces lawyer Ed Masry to give her a job as a secretary. When she gets interested in a family's medical problems, she uncovers a vast cover-up from a company who knowingly poisoned a town's water, and enagages her boss in a huge legal fight.
Erin Brockovich: I don't need pity, I need a paycheck. And I've looked. When you've spent the past six years raising babies its real hard to find somebody who pays worth a damn, are ya getting every word of this down honey or am I talking too fast?
Question: I don't know all the ins and outs of the law, but when Erin is in a car accident, she is going straight through a green light. The other guy rams into her as he tries to cross the intersection (it's not like he just cut her off making a right turn) so obviously he had a red light and not even an arguable right of way. I know money can buy you justice, but how is this not an open and shut case?
