Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film when Jack Nicholson hits the wolf, his car spins around 180 degrees in the snow, but there are no marks from the wheels in the snow when he approaches the hit wolf. (00:03:25)
Continuity mistake: Even though the moon plays a leading role in the movie its phases get mixed up in a big way: Before Will has his first night out as a semi-wolf there's a shot of a half moon. That's not only just a few days after the full moon when he was bitten, but it's waxing to boot. In the next night, after Will calls Laura, apologizes for his vanishing, and asks her out for dinner there is another shot of a slightly fuller moon, but now it's waning. However, two days later near the end, when Will is locked up in the barn, the moon is full again. (00:46:40 - 01:05:05)
George: Excuse me, sir, can I help you? Oh, Mr. Swinton, I didn't recognize you.
Stewart: I'm here to see Miss Alden, George.
George: Well, I'm afraid I'll have to call. May I ask your business with Miss Alden?
Stewart: My business is pleasure, George. Does she look like the fuck of the decade or what?
Will Randall: What do you do?
Laura: Why do you care?
Will Randall: I don't. I was just making polite conversation.
Laura: I'd rather not discuss what I do.
Will Randall: You know, I think I understand what you're like now. You're very beautiful and you think men are only interested in you because you're beautiful, but you want them to be interested in you because you're you. The problem is, aside from all that beauty, you're not very interesting. You're rude, you're hostile, you're sullen, you're withdrawn. I know you want someone to look past all that at the real person underneath but the only reason anyone would bother to look past all that is because you're beautful. Ironic, isn't it? In an odd way you're your own problem.
