The Hand that Rocks the Cradle

Audio problem: When Claire is in the car about to leave hospital, she turns around to tell Emma to put her seat-belt on. Though you hear her say "fasten your seat-belt sweetheart" - her lips aren't moving when you hear "sweetheart".

Continuity mistake: After Claire punches Peyton for the first time, there is blood on Peyton's face. When she gets up off the floor, the blood is completely gone.

Audio problem: When Claire and Marleen return from lunch and both are greeting baby Joe, you can hear him screaming his head off. However, when Claire hands him back to Peyton, you see his face and he is not distressed at all (even though you can still hear the crying). (00:44:05 - 01:00:05)

Continuity mistake: The baby's burping pad disappears and reappears from Claire's shoulder after Peyton pretends to save the baby from choking on the earring. (00:25:50)

Continuity mistake: When Emma takes the baby to hide in the closet, you hear him frantically screaming. As they show his face, he is just looking around calmly. (01:41:20)

Other mistake: When Peyton and Emma are watching a scary movie in Peyton's room, Emma is eating popcorn. However, if you watch her mouth, she isn't actually eating anything (just doing an incredibly bad job of pretending to). (00:34:15)

Continuity mistake: When the doctor examines Claire's breast, the robe around it changes positions between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Peyton meets with the lawyers regarding her husband's death, her glass is filled with ice in the close-ups, which disappears in the wide angles.

Audio problem: In the early hospital scene, the TV sound can be heard but the TV had the "MUTING" caption on.

Factual error: When Marlene goes to the greenhouse and is killed by the falling glass, this would never have happened. It is a federal law that all greenhouses, skylights, and entry-ways are to be made of safety glass. The glass would have to have been made of either a Tempered glass, which breaks in a thousand pieces, like a car window, or Laminated glass, which cracks but does not fall apart, like a car windshield. Neither one of these glasses would have killed her. Surely, law abiding citizens like Clare and her Husband would have followed the zoning laws that came along with building their greenhouse.

Plot hole: The only reason the movie takes place is because the news station that Mrs. Mott watches names Clarice as the woman who filled the lawsuit against Mr. Mott. It is completely illegal for broadcasters to name or show a picture of a sexually assaulted victim.

Visible crew/equipment: When Peyton is looking for Emma and Joe, she walks into the bathroom. When she turns the corner, you can see the camera man, in the reflection of the mirror, above the sink.
