Wimbledon (2004)

21 mistakes

Revealing mistake: In the changing room before the Final, Peter leans against a dark wooden pillar several times. It moves on each occasion.

Factual error: Peter and Lizzie play their semi-finals on the same day, but the men's semis are the day after the women's at Wimbledon (unless there has been significant rain, which there wasn't).

Add time

Factual error: Peter Colt's men's semi-final appears to take place on an outside rather than show (Centre or Number 1) court. This would only ever happen if there had been sustained rain, which didn't happen.

Add time

Revealing mistake: Half of the crowds on centre court are made up of faceless dummies with clothes on.

Add time

Factual error: Peter and Lizzie are shown driving out of London in the early evening summer sun to escape to Peter's home in Brighton. This is about half way through the film. There is a clear shot of the car driving west on the A4 out of town. As Brighton is directly south of London this is definitely not the way you'd drive. If you wanted to go to Brighton from central London you'd take the A23/M23 all the way.

Continuity mistake: Peter states that his first match is at 3 PM, but when he goes out onto the court to begin the match we hear him thinking that it is 2 PM.

Continuity mistake: In a couple of close up head shots of Paul Bettany in the final match, the tag in his shirt is visible. In one shot the size of the t-shirt is L (large), in a later shot within the same scene it says M (medium).

Add time

Revealing mistake: Before Peter Colt plays his first round match there is an aerial shot panning across the Wimbledon complex with the commentator declaring, "this is the first day of Wimbledon." However, the aerial shot shows most of the courts are badly worn, as they would be at the end of the tournament. On the first day they, are always lush and green. The shot was taken from archive footage showing the end of a Wimbledon Championship.

Add time

Continuity mistake: On the London Eye, Peter and Lizzie are looking at the Houses of Parliament from quite a height, so they've got around ten minutes before they're back on the ground (a "flight" takes around 30 mins). Jake walks up, Peter punches him, then immediately they run off in the hubbub afterwards, suddenly back at ground level.

Jon Sandys

Continuity mistake: When Peter goes out to play Ajay Bhatt in his first round match, we hear him thinking "It all ends here, at 2pm on Court 17". Later, after Peter has won the first point the camera pans back over him and the scoreboard, which reads "Court No. 8".

Add time

Factual error: The box housing players' close friends and family is at 2 o'clock from the umpire's chair (in front and to the right). In the final, it is shown as being diametrically opposite (behind and to the left of the umpire).

Add time

Factual error: Men's final day is held on the second Sunday of Wimbledon. However, at 7am on the morning of Peter Colt's final appearance, we hear the radio greeting of Radio 1's Chris Moyles. Moyles is a weekday not weekend breakfast DJ. This would only be possible if the final were held over from Sunday to Monday because of sustained poor weather, which didn't happen.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Lizzie and Peter are talking in the sushi restaurant, Lizzie's hair moves positions between shots. In shots of her talking, her hair is in front of her shoulder. In shots of Peter talking, you can still see Lizzie and her hair is behind her shoulder.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the final tennis scene the shadows change direction with practically every shot.

RoyT

Continuity mistake: When Peter is going up to Lizzie's room with the fish and chips, he has cut himself shaving. The piece of paper he has stuck to his face starts off on the corner of his lip and then jumps down and left.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the final match scene when the rain comes Peter is laying on the ground. He turns onto his back and his shirt is very nearly clean. Then as he sits up his valet says "What are you doing, Lad? Get in here!" Peter's shirt has a large mud stain on it.

Continuity mistake: Peter and Lizzie run away from a party after getting off of the London Eye. When they get on Peter's car, it doesn't have a rearview mirror. When they leave the city, a rearview mirror appears.

Continuity mistake: when Peter stays behind to work on his serve, he has 5 ball tubes and 2 beer cans in his hand (which he is using for target practice). The number of tubes on the court and the position of them changes countless times while he is serving with Lizzie.

Continuity mistake: When Lizzie's father comes looking for her, he walks up two flights of stairs to get to Peter's door. When Peter opens the door, you can see the number 4 on the door.

Continuity mistake: When Lizzie and Peter escape the Slazenger party and Peter starts to drive, there is no traffic behind them. But when Lizzie kisses him, distracting him from the road, there is suddenly a big red bus behind the car.

Trivia

Scenes for the film were filmed during the Wimbledon tournament 2003. The actors would walk out on court at the beginning or end of a match as though they were really competing. The officials and spectators were actual tennis officials and spectators, rather than extras. It is the only time in the history of the tournament that this has been allowed.
