The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Benjamin drinks tea with a woman every night and they have a conversation, the woman's tea glass has varying levels of tea in it between every cut during this scene.

Continuity mistake: When Daisy, now in her 20s, is dancing for Benjamin at night, after their dinner, in a gazebo, she's dropped her coat right by her shoes approximately in the middle of the gazebo. They can be seen as dark silhouettes near Daisy's feet. Cut to a long shot, the pile has moved to her right, way off center. Cut back to a medium shot and it has returned to its first position. (01:34:00)


Continuity mistake: In one of the scenes where the daughter and mother are in the hospital room, the nurse enters as the daughter is taking off her vest. In the next shot, her vest is back on.


Factual error: Benjamin leaves his family at some point after his daughter's first birthday (1970), and definitely before her second birthday. But a 1973-1977 El Camino is parked in front of their house as he rides away on his motorcycle. (02:24:15)

Benjamin Button: For what it's worth, it's never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit... Start whenever you want... You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that stop you. I hope you feel things that you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life that you're proud of and if you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
