Continuity mistake: While they kiss prior to having sex, Vivian is wearing an old pink robe. Just after she's been dipped and kissed on the bed by Cay her robe is suddenly opened without her or Cay having opened it.


Continuity mistake: Vivian was in the other room of her hotel room only a few seconds, there's no way Cay could completely undress that quickly and without making any noise.


Other mistake: During the epic love scene between Helen Shaver and Patricia Charbonneaus, look in a closeup shot as Patricia kisses Helen. Parts of each one's hair is inexplicably wet and they haven't been fooling around long enough to sweat.
