Continuity mistake: In the beginning where Claire and Anthony are waiting for "Drew" to arrive they are talking. She says to him while putting her hand on his tummy "Get some food in that flat tummy of yours". On the first shot of this Anthony's arm is out with his hand resting on his hip. In the next shot (as she's pulling her hand away) his arm and hand are down by his side with her arm over his. Not possible.
