Continuity mistake: In the scene where Beth is desperately trying to find Ellen, she approaches a stopped Chevrolet Caprice wagon and rear ends it. When the camera switches to an interior shot of Beth's vehicle during the collision, the vehicle in front has changed to a Ford LTD wagon.
Continuity mistake: After Glen Close kicks Michael Douglas out of her apartment he's standing next to her bicycle holding his stuff. It can be assumed that he put the stuff on the bicycle seat because in the next shot his hands and the handlebars are empty. But later as we see him getting ready to leave again his stuff is the on handlebars. (00:34:35 - 00:37:10)????
Continuity mistake: When the phone rings as Beth paints, Beth puts her roller in the tray and goes to answer the phone. When she returns the roller is in a different position than it was before.
Trivia: The opera that Glenn Close buys the tickets for is Madame Butterfly. That is the song she is listening to when we see the first signs that she is losing it. Note: At the end of Madame Butterfly the heroine kills herself over a lover. In the director's cut of Fatal Attraction Glenn Close cuts her throat in the bathroom of Michael Douglas' house thereby killing herself over a lover.
