Message in a Bottle

Continuity mistake: When he sends her the invitation for the christening, she opens and reads it and its on her desk when her boss walks in. When he's in, she picks it up and opens it again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Garret finds the messages and bottle in Teresa's bedside table, the candle on the table is lit in one shot, then unlit, and then lit again.

Continuity mistake: The state names on all the boats in the harbor have obviously been changed. The letters NC are a different size than the city name (New Harbor). This is because the movie was filmed in Maine and all the boats had the have temporary letters placed over the originals.

Continuity mistake: The scene where Garret and Teresa take the boat out for the early morning test sail. The wide shot cutaway as they are sailing out of the harbour has Teresa's left leg bent and laid flat against the boat. The immediate cut back to the two mid shot has Teresa with her left leg bent but lifted off the side of the boat. Pedantic but true.

Continuity mistake: In the letter in the bottle the girl's name, Katherine, is spelled with a K. The boat that is named after her is Catherine, spelled with a C.

Continuity mistake: When Garret takes Theresa out sailing, he takes the ties off the mainsail, then the middle sail, but then the ties are back on the mainsail again.
