I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry

Continuity mistake: In the shower scene where the soaps are dropped, what Larry is holding changes constantly. He goes from holding a white tube of something, to holding what appears to be a green shampoo bottle, to digging in a zippered case with his stuff in it, back and forth and around, several times.

Continuity mistake: When Chuck is talking to the lawyer in the pharmacy, there are several instances where his chain goes from being under his shirt, to over his shirt and vice versa.

Continuity mistake: When Alex runs her cart into Chuck's cart at the store, Alex is reading a book with her glasses on. The camera shoots the carts hitting each other, then Alex talking to Chuck (with her glasses on), then Chuck talking to Alex and back to Alex without her glasses. The rest of the scene is shot with Alex's glasses hanging in the middle of her shirt. They never show Alex actually removing her glasses and hanging them.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the first inspector comes to the house to inform Larry that his domestic partnership is being investigated by the state, after he has made his assessment and they are seeing him off on the outside porch, the door behind Chuck and Larry goes from being wide open, to almost entirely shut, to partially open, to entirely open, to halfway open. etc. throughout the scene.

Factual error: In the first fire scene, Chuck and Larry go into an actively burning building with no air masks on - that would NEVER happen.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where they are being addressed by the board separately, Chuck is asked to leave. Chuck does so and then they show the cross questioning between both Chuck and Larry. After the questioning, Larry comes out to tell Chuck how the questioning went, Chuck questions whether they're done, and Alex states "No, they still need to question the children." This indicates that Chuck was already questioned. If this is the case, why is it Larry coming back from the questioning room, and Chuck eagerly waiting? It should be Larry waiting in the Lobby for Chuck to finish.

Continuity mistake: When Chuck and Larry have their meeting with Alex in her office, her glasses case goes from being open to closed from one shot to the next.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the initial investigator comes to Larry's house to inform him that he is being investigated for fraud by the state, and he falls down the ladder, his undershirt collar goes from being fluffed out and bunched after the fall, to straight and neat, then back to bunched and balled again, between shots.

Character mistake: After they get out of the hospital, in the background behind Kevin James, a poster misspells Cincinnati. It instead says "Cincinatti."

Visible crew/equipment: When the taxi pulls up to the sidewalk, the actor's mark is visible underneath the taxi.

Revealing mistake: When Chuck first moves into Larry's house and goes to sit down on the daughter's green chair, it's evident that Chuck's weight didn't collapse the chair but rather it's pulled out to the right as if it was yanked from under him to achieve the collapse effect.
