My Best Friend's Wedding

Corrected entry: The day before the wedding, back at the hotel,when Dermot, with Julia is reading a letter sent by his boss regarding the email sent previously by Julia, he goes to call Kimmy to ask her about the email and when he is speaking to the person on the phone he asks to speak to Cameron, not Kimmy.

Correction: He actually says, "Isabelle, I need to talk to Kim." If you listen closely and read the captions, he says Kim not Cameron.

I heard Cameron as well. It's coming on again. I'll listen more intently.

Corrected entry: At the beginning, Julia is a restaurant critic in NYC (at 28 - but that's another issue), but the frantic chef of the restaurant she and her boss dine at is Charlie Trotter, whose restaurant is in Chicago.

Correction: The name of the restaurant is never shown or said. So even though his restaurant is in Chicago, and Jules was dining in NY, he could have just been making a cameo appearance in the film.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: When Jules is typing the letter about Mulroney in Diaz's dad's office, she has the wedding ring with her. She puts it down on the desk on some paper. In the next shot, it is gone.

Correction: After she gets up from falling from the chair, she sits down and picks up the box with the wedding ring with her left hand and sets it aside.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: In the shot where Jules tells Michael the wedding band is stuck on her finger, he sticks her finger in his mouth to pull the ring off. The audience is able to see that the ring is not actually on her finger, but in his hand when he sticks her finger in his mouth.

Correction: In that scene, Michael grabs her hand with both of his hands, and he puts her ring finger in his mouth. The ring is never in his hand. Had it been, then he would have had to put his finger in his mouth. The scene never cuts away from when he picks up her hand to put in his mouth, therefore, there wasn't any time in between shots to put the ring in his mouth.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: When Jules in her hotel room and is awakened by her best friend George they both sit on the bed and talk. Jules took out a cigarette and starts smoking.Then she falls back onto the bed and her hands come up to her chest. there is no cigarette in her hands.

Correction: After she takes a drag from the cigarette with her right hand, she takes the cigarette with her left hand and sets it down before falling back onto the bed.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: In the starting scene, Julia Roberts is in the restaurant tasting food. From one shot, coming up behind her, you can see the rim of Julia's glasses on the side of her face. Then when the shot changes, so we see her from the front, you can clearly see she is not wearing glasses.

Correction: The first shot we see of Julia Roberts if of the front of her face, and she is not wearing glasses. I froze the shot that's referenced, and it only looks like she's wearing glasses. It's the way the curls fall on the side of her face that only make it seem that rims of glasses are visible. She doesn't wear any glasses during the movie.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film, after Cameron Diaz finds Michael and Jules kissing, they all chase each other, and then get into vehicles and chase each other. When Julia is in the truck, she speaks on her mobile. When she runs out of the truck she doesn't have it with her, however, a few seconds after, you can see her running with it in her hand.

Correction: If you look closely you'll see her running with it in her left hand when she gets out of the truck, then when she runs through the doors it's in her left back pocket which would make sense since she had the phone in her left hand.

Corrected entry: On many occasions throughout the film, distances between characters change in different shots without anyone moving in the scene.


Correction: Far too vague - needs specific scene examples.

Corrected entry: As a restaurant critic, Julia Roberts would never make her presence known to the chef, and certainly would not tell him how she was writing up his restaurant.

Correction: Although a critic may not make their presence known, a well-known critic is just that, well-known. The staff would know who she is and alert the chef. Also, she does not say how she is writing up the restaurant, just that one dish. So it could be that this was a new item on the menu and she had been invited to review it.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jules and Mike are at the tailor, she pulls a string on Mike's suit and the sleeve falls off. It cuts to George on the other side of the store and when it cuts back, the sleeve is attached again.

Correction: The sleeve never falls off. It does stay on Mike's arm, though not attatched by the thread.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jules is in Kimmy's father's office and she is sending an e-mail to Michael's boss, she never types an e-mail address - simply the boss's name. An e-mail won't reach someone without an address.

Correction: It is possible that Kimmy's father has his secretary add the addresses.

Corrected entry: When Jules is carrying a tray full of beers into the skybox at the stadium, it is obvious that the cups are empty and apparently glued down to the tray. As Jules twirls around with the tray, the cups never move, and with certain camera angles, you can see down an inch or so into each cup, and there is nothing in them.

Correction: The cups are not glued onto the tray because she's continuously passing out the cups of beer. If they were glued, she wouldn't be able to hand them out.

Jane Doe

Corrected entry: In the scene where Michael goes to the wedding day brunch to confront Kimmy. Julia is talking to both Michael and Kimmy in turns and has one pair of sunglasses hanging on the front of her shirt and another she had on her face then alternately on her head. Why does she have 2 pairs of sunglasses?

Correction: It's obvious to the audience that she has two pairs of sunglasses, and we're supposed to believe that it's because she's not in her right frame of mind. She's there to break up a wedding, and she's insane.

Jane Doe

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the movie, Jules is yelling for Kimmy in a public restroom. When she walks in, her curls in the back of her hair are loose. Another shot shows her curls tight, and later they are back loose again. This actually happens repeatedly throughout the movie. With Jules's long, curly hair, it's obvious when it changes.

Julianne Potter: What I mean, when I say annoyingly perfect, is that there is nothing annoying about her perfection. It's vulnerable and endearing... and that is annoying as shit.
George Downes: Ahh... you like her.
Julianne Potter: If I didn't have to hate her, I'd adore her.

Question: When Michael is having a fitting done for his suit, it appears that the tailor is making a pattern with the materials on Michael's body where his coat would be. With the wedding 2 days away, isn't it a little late in the game to be making a custom suit?
