Elizabethtown

Elizabethtown (2005)

8 corrected entries

Corrected entry: When Drew tells Claire outside the hotel about losing a billion dollars, Claire mentions Phil. But Drew never told her Phil's name or the name of the company.

Correction: On the plane, he told her he was just fired by a guy named Phil. Given her name theory, she likely would've remembered the information and known it was his boss. Also, much of their "all night conversation" wasn't seen, so he could've mentioned more details of his firing without the money/failure specifics.

Corrected entry: The first shot of the footlights on the stage showed only a few of them and spaced out. All subsequent shots showed several strips of lights (with no space between the the lights in the strips). They covered almost all of the front of the stage.

Wayne C.

Correction: In the ballroom, there are four housings, which measure 6-7 feet, of multi-lamp borderlights mounted at the edge of the stage; each of these striplighting luminaires has fifteen circular lights. These individual lights are controlled by the hotel's stagehands (as is the "follow spot" which follows Hollie as she taps), and depending on who is on stage there is a "lighting plan" as to which lamps (bulbs) are either all on, or set to a specific pattern - such as one lamp on, the next two off, one lamp on, the next two off, and so forth. When Hollie, Drew and Heather peek from behind the curtain, only five lamps per striplight are on, and when Hollie takes the stage all are on, and when Hollie taps we see them change to only five per housing again.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: Short glass upside-down on the podium disappeared between shots. When speaker left the podium she was carrying a tall drink glass. She did not take it to the podium.

Wayne C.

Correction: First, there is no instance of a "short glass upside-down on the podium" actually disappearing between shots. Second, Claire DID take the glass to the podium - both times; first when she remarks about people who annually meet and moments later when she expresses that she likes Drew.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: While sitting in first class on the plane, Drew turns the overhead light off twice in a row.

Ral0618

Correction: When he sits in first class, Drew clicks the light off, then Claire promptly turns it back on and joins him; later, Drew clicks it off again after Claire takes the suit bag. Also, in both instances, it doesn't show the action from multiple angles either.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: Claire was talking on the phone while immersed in water in a bathtub. The first shot showed one container sitting on the bathtub shelf on the left side. All subsequent shots had two containers, both different from the one in the first shot.

Wayne C.

Correction: The first shot is of Claire's feet at the foot of the tub, with a single bottle on the left. However, all the following shots are of Claire's face, at the head of the tub, where there are two bottles on the left in all shots. There are no inconsistencies.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: Holly (Susan Sarandon) is supposedly wearing tap shoes, but while walking around on stage during her eulogy, her shoes make no additional noise.

Ral0618

Correction: When Hollie walks up onstage she is wearing thin low heeled pumps, she does not wear the tap shoes as she walks around onstage, hence no noise; these pumps are even seen when she talks about their insurance agent not calling back. The fact that she never changed into the tap shoes is another mistake entirely.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: When Drew and Claire are talking on a couch, the background changes to a curtain and then back again between shots.

Wayne C.

Correction: Drew and Claire are sitting on a couch in the Brown Hotel lobby, and depending on the angle of the camera the background certainly does change. When the camera faces Drew for his close-ups, it is facing the wall with the window and curtain, to Drew's left (viewer's right). However, when the camera faces both Claire and Drew, it is a head-on shot facing the couch and everything else behind the couch, including rest of the lobby with Cindy and her friends.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: While Drew's father was laying in the coffin his chin twitched slightly, in one of the last shots.

Wayne C.

Correction: Artistic license. That was the point of those shots, from the point of view of Drew, his father was still smirking. Not a mistake, the director just wanted to show how Drew was feeling.

Mistakes

After his father's funeral, when Drew turns on the ignition and in following shots, the leather band that he wears on his right wrist (not the watch) is clasped with its strap facing his thumb, yet when he passes the sign for 60B, the band goes round the opposite way. Then, when he listens to The Hombres the leather band is flipped back, but when he picks up Global Business Today magazine it's switched yet again, and so on.
