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.
