Mrs. X (Laura Linney) fires Annie (Scarlett Johansson) after Mr. X (Paul Giamatti) makes a move on her. Annie finds out where the nanny cam is and vents her issues about Mr. and Mrs. X. Annie applies for a scholarship for anthropology and is going out with Harvard Hottie (real name: Hayden). Annie and her mother settle their differences about Annie studying anthropology and her mother says that Annie has her own life and it's okay to make mistakes. Mrs. X (real name: Alexandra) writes a letter to Annie saying sorry, thank you (for making her realize that she had to pay more attention to her son), that she's no longer married to Mr. X and that she's spending more time with her son Grayer.
Other mistake: There's a scene at the end of the movie where Annie is sitting looking through some graduate school brochures, and her boyfriend Hayden comes over and hands her a letter from the "5th Avenue Mom" she used to work for. She says she can't read it so he offers to read it to her.The camera shows a close-up of the letter as Hayden starts to read. In the letter it's written that it's been "some time" since we've spoken, but he reads it as "several months."Cal K.
