Corrected entry: When Richard does all those sit-ups, you can tell that Richard only does one, but the people who filmed the scene played it one thousand times.

Correction: In Richard Gere's interview, he discusses how young and fit they were. They actually did the push ups! He actually trained for the fight scene as well.

Corrected entry: This is just plain weird. I have seen the movie at least 10 times. At the very end Gere walks up behind Debra Winger. She takes out her ear plugs and her hands are in camera view all the time. She reaches up to his mouth and it appears that she pops the ear plugs into his mouth and then kisses him. Call me crazy but look for yourself.


Correction: It does look like it doesn't it!? But, her ear plugs are on a cord, she just leaves them hanging around her neck. She lets them trail out of her hands, which does make it look like she grabbed them.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: In the scene where Richard Gere's friend is proposing to his girlfriend, she refuses and he swallows the ring. If you listen to him, as he licks his lips, you can hear the ring scraping against his teeth.

Correction: It's not the sound of the ring scraping his teeth, it's the sound of him licking his lips after he swallows the ring.


Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie, Richard Gere's friend hangs himself in the shower. Notice how many times his friend goes from nude to wearing underwear.
