The Pledge

Corrected entry: Before he leaves for his Baja fishing trip, Jack Nicholson's character sits at an airport bar drinking a plastic cup of Scotch. As the camera pulls away in the next frame, he's shown sitting in front of a tall flute of beer. A few frames later, he's back in close up, nursing his short plastic cup of scotch.

Correction: These shots are split by shots showing TV news coverage, planes leaving the hanger, etc, and are intended to show that significant time is passing as he sits there. His going from scotch to beer and back to scotch is another hint that he's been there long enough to have had several drinks.


Corrected entry: When we first meet Robin Penn, in the restaurant where she works, her right front tooth is noticibly chipped. When we see Robin at the end of the movie, her tooth is whole. No cosmetic dentistry visits between scenes were mentioned.

Correction: Her ex hit her and a tooth came out. Jerry comments on her new tooth at a fishingtrip.

Continuity mistake: When Jack Nicholson is driving his truck through the field in a rush to get to the church to save the little girl, you see the truck bouncing through the bumps. In some scenes, the truck has crash bars in the front, then they disappear, and reappear again.
