Corrected entry: In the scene when we first see Sera in the elevator, her hair is wavy and parted to the right, but when she goes into the hotel room, her hair is more curly and parted to the left.


Correction: The elevator she is in has a mirror, and she was primping her hair using that on the way up, hence the slightly different style and reverse image.

Corrected entry: Nicholas Cage hires a hooker while drunk. She steals his wedding band. A few scenes after, he's at his office, gets fired, etc., and has the wedding band on his hand. Then it's gone again.

Correction: These scenes are flashbacks, explaining the apparently changing continuity

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie Ben walks into the restaurant to ask his friend Pierre for money. During his conversation with the folks at the table, he says he got fired from his job. If that's the case, he wouldn't need to ask for money because when he gets fired in another scene, he receives a large severance check, and immediately goes to Las Vegas.

Correction: Are you kidding? He is trying to scrounge money. As if he is going to tell the person he is biting that he doesn't really need the money. He is trying to be as obnoxious as he can so his victim will give him money just to get rid of him.

Corrected entry: The actress who plays the blonde bank teller is an adult film star.

Correction: No, she's not. The blonde bank teller is Carey Lowell from "Law & Order" and is married to Richard Gere.

Other mistake: Nick Cage is playing blackjack at a Caribbean stud table.

Question: How did Nicolas Cage manage to keep his job for so long? You'd think he'd get fired for coming to work drunk the first time.


Chosen answer: On the contrary, the social contacts at work typically tolerate, sympathize with, and even enable alcoholics and other substance abusers, because many of the other employees are also similarly (and secretly) engaged in addictive behavior of their own to varying degrees. Usually, no action is taken until the addictive behavior starts affecting company income, insurance and morale. So, some substance abusers can lead lengthy careers within a company before the hammer falls.
