Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film when the wife is running a bath, Michael Douglas is down stairs making tea. As he walks in and out of the living room, in the background there is a curtain that is drawn open but there is no window.

Suggested correction: There is no window with the curtains drawn that is not there. In one scene you can see the light of another window and curtain reflecting on the wall, but that is only a reflection, not a real window.

Continuity mistake: When Michael Douglas pretends to be hurt in the field, Glenn Close says, "My father died of heart attack," and she has a long earring dangling from her right ear. In the very next shot it's gone. (00:27:05)

Suggested correction: The earring is still there.

Continuity mistake: One scene has Glenn Close in bed shot from profile, and the sheet in down exposing her breasts. The film cuts to a frontal shot and the sheet is up around her neck. When it cuts back to profile, the sheet is down again.

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.
