Continuity mistake: Amanda Peet finishes the shoot and breaks away from the set to meet up with a friend at a pizzeria across the street for lunch. They pick a table on the sidewalk, and as soon as Radha Mitchell sits down she drops her handbag by her side next to her chair down on the ground. In the next immediate closeup shot when the two of them start conversing, the purse is now up on the table, very prominently in the middle of the screen.
