Collateral Beauty

Continuity mistake: When Will Smith is being recorded by the private eye, she holds the cellphone vertically. Also, there's a lot of background noise -especially in the subway - yet when the video is played it is a horizontal video with perfect sound.

Other mistake: When Helen Mirren and Will Smith are standing on the subway platform and the scene cuts away to view them from the other side, we see them through the windows of a passing train. Dame Helen suddenly gets out of character and hastily answers her cell phone. She was playing a "spirit" on behalf of Will - not someone who'd have a phone. (01:04:00)

Brigitte: Death is so much more vital than Time.
Simon: Right.
Brigitte: Death gives Time all of its value.

Claire: What was that thing you said about Einstein in there?
Raffi: Einstein called time a stubbornly persistant illusion.
Claire: Whats that even mean.
Raffi: Time doesn't go from January to December, or from noon to midnight. You know we all just make it that way in our heads.
Claire: That's absurd! Try telling that to a person who's an hour late to a wedding, or that's just been sentenced to 20 years in jail.
Raffi: Or someone fighting the baby clock.

Allison: I can't believe you're gonna stalk me. But, um... Just so you know, tomorrow's a half-day.
Whit: Well, I'll be here then.

Question: How did Howard and Madeline not recognise each other?

raph

Answer: They did recognize each other (at one point he goes to her house without asking her address). After the divorce, Howard said that he wished they were strangers again. They literally behaved as if they never met each other before (even though Madeline is gently pushing to move past being strangers - for example, by guessing he's divorced).
