Mommie Dearest

Trivia: During the rosebush/tree chopping scene, Faye Dunaway is chopping the tree, except when you see the close up. During the close up (when the tree falls), it is actually the films director Frank Perry chopping the tree.

Trivia: Faye Dunaway plays Diana Scarwid's mother in the movie, even though in real life she's only 14 years older than Scarwid.

Other mistake: When Joan is cutting up her rose garden, she is ranting and raving about how mad she is at Mayer, and how they're calling her box office poison. But if you look closely at her lips, they aren't moving.
