Message in a Bottle

Corrected entry: In the scene where Kevin Costner and Robin Wright Penn are kissing goodbye as she is getting into her car the door to her car is open, then in the next scene it is suddenly closed, and of course they follow it with the door open again.

Correction: When Costner and Penn step up to the car, Penn quickly opens the BACK door, throws her suitcase into the BACK SEAT, and then shuts the door. They say their good-byes, she opens the FRONT door, gets in, and drives off.

Corrected entry: 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 finds the messages and bottle in Theresa's bedside table, the candle on the table is lit in one shot, then unlit, and then lit again.

Question: How did the bottle end up in lake Michigan if it was thrown in the Atlantic ocean?

Answer: None of the bottles ended up in Lake Michigan. Theresa is from Chicago, and when she and her son are at Boston Logan Airport she tells her ex-husband she'll be staying in Cape Cod for a few days, which is where she finds the bottle on the beach, along the Atlantic Coast. Then after the newspaper article, Theresa learns of another letter in a bottle, which Theresa notes as "bottle #2", and this bottle was found in Ocean City, Maryland, also along the Atlantic Coast. Catherine's letter in a bottle was found at Virginia's shoreline, so all of the bottles were found on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
