It's Complicated

Continuity mistake: During the bath scene where Jane is in the tub and Jake is sitting there talking, the candle on the window sill changes location. In the close up shots the candle and mug on the window sill are right next to one another. In the wide shots, the candle is towards the middle of the window.

Suggested correction: Time has passed and it's actually a second serving - noted by the conversation flow, open mustard, used napkins and utensils, and the water, wine, and salad levels. Streep also only serves Martin the second helping.
