Sliding Doors

Continuity mistake: Just before Helen gets hit by a car, it is pouring with rain, and she and James are soaked, although when she is about to cross the road, the rain has stopped and they are both suddenly dry. (01:23:55)

Factual error: At the beginning, when Helen is running for her train, the station signs clearly say Embankment. However the type of train that she misses/catches is specific to the Waterloo & City Line, which only runs between Bank and Waterloo - it doesn't go anywhere near Embankment!

Continuity mistake: When Helen arrives home after being sacked (in the version where she doesn't catch Gerry in bed) he calls out to see if it's her. She replies "No, it's your bit of stuff. Wednesday, shag day, remember?" However it's been made clear from Helen's attempted replacement of the booze she took from work on Friday that it's actually a Monday. (00:14:30)

Trivia: The scene with Helen and James on the boat where he describes losing his 8 yr old girlfriend to Gary Glitter has a certain unplanned tastelessness to it now since Mr Glitter was convicted of possessing child porn a few years later.

Lydia: Gerry, I'm a woman! We don't say what we want! But we reserve the right to get pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating! And not a little bit scary.

James: You know what Monty Python used to say?
Helen: "Always look on the bright side of life."
James: No, "nobody expects the Spanish inquisition."
