The Birdcage

Plot hole: There's no way for Albert to show up at the front door as Val's mother the night the Keeleys are there, as the only way out of his bedroom (which he is still in by the time the Keeleys show up) is through the door that leads into the living room where the Keeleys, Val and Armand are.

Continuity mistake: Robin Williams is filling the bowls with soup. The next shot there is more soup in them than he gave them.

Continuity mistake: As Armand serves the soup up to everyone, during the dinner scene, it has hard boiled eggs in it. The eggs in everyone's bowls in following shots change - some appear/disappear, some change position, etc.

Question: When Senator Keeley thinks that the Goldmans are acting weird because of Senator Jackson's death and Albert replies to him about how it's dreadful news etc., did Albert know about Jackson's death, or did he just improvise on the spot?
