Continuity mistake: In the scene where Loretta goes to the brother's apartment, cooks him a rare steak & they are sitting at the table talking, the label on the bottle of J&B changes direction from shot to shot without being touched.

Continuity mistake: In the scene towards the end of the movie, when Rose gets the door to let in Ronnie, her hair is messy. When she returns her hair is neat.

Continuity mistake: At the family meal (minus Loretta), Loretta's father asks for the wine. When it is passed to him his left hand reaches into the shot to take the carafe, but when the shot changes he is shown receiving it in his right hand.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cher is sitting at the kitchen table, talking to her father and drinking Spumante, the level in the champagne glasses is different every time the camera angle changes.

Continuity mistake: Loretta at one point in the movie gets a make-over which includes getting her hair coloured to cover up the grey. In several scenes before she gets her hair coloured Loretta's grey hairs are missing - when Loretta goes to meet Ronnie (Nicholas Cage) for the first time at the bakery, Loretta doesn't have any grey hair.

Continuity mistake: There is a scene in which Johnnie comes from the airport and visits the house where Loretta lives. The mother opens the door for him, but no-one closes the door. After a while the father enters and the door's closed.

Continuity mistake: While Nicholas Cage is enjoying Cher's steak, at one point in the scene his elbow is up on the table for the shots from the front, but his forearm is resting on the edge of the table for the shots from behind - the camera switches between these two views several times.

Continuity mistake: In the last scene, when they are all sitting at the table, Cosmo has a pair of glasses on, when they pan back to him, he's wearing a slightly different pair.

Continuity mistake: After Loretta slaps Ronnie, and she's getting ready to leave she goes into the bathroom and clips all of her hair back into a ponytail. She walks out of the bathroom and around the corner into the hallway, the shot changes, and suddenly only part of her hair is in the ponytail and there are a lot of loose strands.

Trivia: Cosmo's favorite song is "It Must Be Him" by Vikki Carr and it is heard in the film when he plays it on the phonograph. Later, Vikki Carr can be seen sitting in the row behind Cosmo and Mona at the Metropolitan opera house (she's the attractive red-haired lady who is smiling).
