Eyes Wide Shut

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the orgy house, when women start walking to other people one by one: the woman which will approach Tom Cruise at one point has no neighbours in the circle (because two women at her sides already left), but later she is kneeling next to another woman with big mask, who was three 'seats' to her left earlier. (01:13:40 - 01:14:10)

Continuity mistake: Cruised is mobbed by some guys and stumbles towards the blue car's trunk. When the angle changes he is half a metre behind, next to the passenger's window.

Continuity mistake: When Tom Cruise is going to return the costume, he walks up the stairs to the apartment building and enters when a person leaving the building opens the door. The next shot is then him walking into the Rainbow store, which is next to the building.

Continuity mistake: When the movie starts, Cruise and Kidman greet the nanny, who puts her around the girl. When the angle changes, her arm is away and she is surrounding the girl again.

Question: One of the mistakes says there's a newspaper that Tom Cruise reads that has the same sentence written over and over. Is this a reference to the Shining by the production?

Answer: No. They needed to have an article for Cruise to read and, on the assumption that it wouldn't be readable by the viewers, they simply filled up the space required by repeating the same sentence over and over again. Another commonly used tactic is to steal text from a real article, leading to situations where the text of a newspaper article can be seen to have nothing to do with the actual headline.
