Corrected entry: At the beginning the priest is loaded, wearing his collar, then orders a beer from the bar tender whom he tells his story to. But then at the end he starts getting drunk at Elfman's apartment (notice he starts slurring his speech after only one sip) then he leaves and carries the bottle around with him getting drunk. He's not wearing his collar at her apartment. Why would he put it back on to go into a bar? And if it was a different day, would you risk going back to a church while drunk and then dress like that the next day before going out to get drunk again?

Correction: After Brian leaves her apartment, we can see him waking up in his white shirt (=without collar) covered with a blanket. There's a homeless man next to him, covered with the same blanket. After this, Brian goes to the celebration in the temple and has a fight with the rabbi. Brian is wearing his collar right now. After this fight, he ends up in the bar.

Corrected entry: The first time that Brian calls Anna during the night when he can't sleep, you see her and Jakob asleep in bed. They don't hear the answering machine. Brian does not call Anna's cell phone. The next morning you see that Jakob and Anna were sleeping at Jakob's apartment. How did Anna's answering machine get to Jakob's apartment and why would Brian, who doesn't anything know about their relationship, call Jakob's apartment in the middle of the night to speak to Anna?

Correction: When Brian speaks on the tape of the answering machine, we can see Anna and Jakob sleeping. In this shot, the walls are very dark, there are white lamps beside the bed, there is no window over the bed and the book shelves are missing and so it's obvious that they are not at his place.

Corrected entry: After Brian kisses Anna, he goes over to the drinks cabinet and takes a drink. He then looks at the bottles underneath then grabs one, looks at the label and puts it in his pocket. The camera cuts to Anna then back to Brian where he takes the same bottle, looks at the label, and stuffs it in his pocket again.

Correction: It is two separate bottles.

Corrected entry: During the shabbat meal Anne Bancroft's glass contains a clear liquid. When the film cuts back a couple of seconds later it is full of red wine.

Correction: It's not uncommon to have both water and wine at dinner, it could have been possible for her to change glasses.

The 3 main characters are having dinner with Anne Bancroft. You can see Jenna Elfman's dark roots. After she and Ben Stiller go home the roots are light. Did she stop to get her hair touched-up on the way home?



When Milos Forman, who plays Father Havel, talks to Edward Norton about faith in the private quarters of the church he tells Norton that he came to America when the Russians invaded Czechoslovakia. He actually did so in real life.
