Home for the Holidays

Continuity mistake: At Thanksgiving dinner when the turkey is spilled on her head. In one scene she is wet. The next scene she is dry again and then the next scene she is wet again.

Continuity mistake: After Claudia arrives at her parents house, her dad goes for a piece of pie. In one shot, he has a big mound of whipped cream on top of the pie, in the next shot it has gone way down, and in the last shot it's still a smaller size.

Continuity mistake: When all the guys are out in the yard playing football, Tommy says that his team was winning 59-0, but a couple of minutes pass by and he says the score is 34-0.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Claudia is in the car with her parents coming home from the airport, you see her look over at a man in the car next to her. During that scene her dad is talking to her but you don't see him, you only hear his voice. When the camera goes back to Claudia, you can now see her dad and he is still talking but his lips aren't moving.

Factual error: When Kitt drops her mom off at the airport, that's not Chicago O'Hare. She is actually dropping her off at BWI airport so Claudia can fly...to Baltimore, Maryland.

Character mistake: Claudia says she is 40, her daughter is 16, it is referenced that it was a young pregnancy, however she would have been 24 when she had Kit, hardly abnormally young.

Suggested correction: 24 is still young and she doesn't say anything about being "abnormally young." Plus, in 1979, the mean age for first time mothers was around 25.5 (rising to around 28.6 in 1995), so she was on the young side of first time mothers. If she had said she was a teenager when she got pregnant, that would be a mistake.


Tommy: Well, that was absurd, let's eat dead bird.
