Corrected entry: In George's flashback of Annie, all of the pictures from her as a baby until graduation are from George's point of view. And then there's the scene of Annie sliding down the banister after her return from Rome, and George is in the scene. Then in the next image, she and Brian are kissing and it's from George's point of view again.
Corrected entry: Annie and Brian have only known each other for two months, and later when Frank is talking about the wedding plans, he makes a big deal because there is only five months before the wedding...so how can it be that later on Annie and Brian celebrate their 8 month anniversary?
Corrected entry: There are some timeline problems, primarily early in the movie. that only stick out after viewing the movie several times. George (Steve Martin) leaves work early to meet his daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams), who just arrived home from Europe. Based upon the fact he left work early and that there is bright sunlight out, it is easy to assume the time is right around 4/5 pm. Given that, the following occurs: First, the family immediately sits down to dinner, and within a minute or two, Annie gets in a fight and storms outside. When George follows her to console her, it is suddenly dark! An hour later (based on the dialogue), her fiancé comes over. Yet it is still dark and her brother is already in bed. Seems pretty strange for about 6:15 p.m. in the summer in LA! Second (and this is a stretch), at the aforementioned dinner, George makes plans for the family. Finally, during the reception at the house, George races to the dance floor to dance with Annie. Before he can get there, she and her new husband leave to go upstairs and change for their honeymoon. George decides to race through the kitchen, through the front yard and to the front door and catch her there. He is shown running fairly quickly. Yet BEFORE he gets there, the newlyweds are already changed and out the door. Quick change artists indeed.
Corrected entry: In the scene where George is trying to escape from the dogs, it shows him scaling the balcony of the office and dangling. Once he has landed, he is still holding the bank book. Why would he not just throw this back on the desk and how could he have it in his hand and hang from the balcony at the same time?
Corrected entry: Two scenes show the young son remembering to walk "right-together-left-together" down the isle at the wedding but then they all just walk left-right down the aisle during the wedding scene.
Corrected entry: When George (Steve Martin) is "losing it" in the grocery store he removes 4 hot dog buns from 3 packages. The manager is upset and tells George he has to pay for those 4 buns. Does it really matter if he takes 4 buns out? No. I'm sure if the hot dog bun packages were rung up it would show the regular price regardless off how many buns are in the package. We can assume that if George made it to the check out stand he would have made a ruckus there too.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Annie returns from Europe and slides down the bannister to greet her father, she is wearing an unmarked black dress, yet when George recounts the scene in a dream the night before the wedding, Annie has a white dusty mark on the back of her dress from sliding down the bannister.
Corrected entry: When George and Nina go visit the in-laws, they are driving up there street and finally turn into the in-laws driveway. If you look at the street, there are absolutely no cars behind them or parked, but when they turn into the driveway, a car suddenly passes right behind them. Would be impossible if no other cars were behind them.
