The Long Kiss Goodnight

Continuity mistake: In the final battle scene between Geena Davis and Craig Beirko, Beirko's character slashes Davis' character across the stomach (upper right hand side). In the next shot, the wound is located on the lower left side and in a subsequent shot, the wound has multiplied to become two wounds: one in the upper right hand side and a second in the lower left hand side.

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis is meeting the old man at the bar in the train station, when the young guy talks to her, she looks over at him, and you can clearly see a boom mike in the shot which stays there until the scene changes.

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis is ice-skating with her daughter, she takes off her right glove to hold the girl's hand and help her up. The glove is still off when she says "3 2 1, Go." but when the camera changes point-of-view in the next shot, the glove is somehow back on her hand again. (00:19:00)

Continuity mistake: Geena Davis has her hands and feet tied to the water wheel when she's being tortured for information. Under water she manages to free one of her hands but not her feet, when she comes up for air and shoots her captor, she drops the gun and unties her other hand, but her feet are still tied, so she would have fallen face first into the water.

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis is underwater by the water wheel, she notices that the dead body down there has a gun and she starts to reach for it. Then in the next shot, we see her reaching hand holding on to the water wheel but she still looks like she's reaching for the gun even though she's holding on to the wheel.

Continuity mistake: At the end when Geena Davis cuts the string of lights and flies up to kill Craig Beirko, she grabs a machine gun on the way up from someone who's burning. Now she's one tough cookie but I doubt that she wouldn't even flinch when grabbing a hot gun.

Continuity mistake: When the man who was holding the carollers hostage comes to Davis', she dives behind the fridge door, the man shoots the door and Davis flies backwards. After he kicks the door shut, there's not a scratch on it.

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis is skating across the ice and shooting at a car, one of the car's hubcaps flies off only to come back a few shots later.

Continuity mistake: When Geena Davis stabs a man in the eye with a syringe, in one shot there's no blood on his eye, but in the very next shot there is.


Continuity mistake: After Timothy has kidnapped Caitlin from the church, it cuts to an exterior wideshot of the car heading to Niagara Falls and we can see the rear-view mirror on the windshield, but in the closeup of Charly and Mitch the mirror has vanished.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Charlie forces the truck driver out of the semi, just as he hits the ground you can see the door of the truck closing. Then when the shot cuts back to Charlie the door is seen closing again.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Charlie forces the truck driver out of the semi, right after she points her gun at him, the shot cuts to outside the truck and it looks like the driver fell out the driver's side door. This does not make sense as Charlie was blocking that door.
