The Rainmaker

The Rainmaker (1997)

Continuity mistake: While Matt Damon is questioning the CEO of the insurance company, he removes a large book of insurance information from the CEO's lap, pushing his microphone out. He then gives the CEO a document that virtually wins the case. When he reads it, the shot clearly shows the mic is back where it shuold be. Yeah, maybe he pulled it back. But in the next shot, when Matt asks him to read it again, he comes up to him and pushes the mic back to where it was before.

Continuity mistake: One morning Rudy wakes up from the clattering noises Ms. Birdie is making when she unloads a number of biggish garden tools from a wheelbarrow. The camera cuts to Rudy who is trying to sleep while we hear her unloading, then back to Ms. Birdie where the number of tools on the wheelbarrow has gone up again.

Continuity mistake: When Rudy comes to the Black's place the first time and Donny Ray's nose starts bleeding, blood drops on the letter in which Great Benefits deny their claim for the eighth and last time, calling Dot Black "stupid, stupid, stupid". The letter dates from April 25, 1995 and is signed by Russell Krokit. When the same letter is produced as evidence when Everett Rufkin is heard as a witness the letter dates from July 7, 1994 and is signed by Everett Rufkin with copy to Russell Krokit.

Question: Why is Danny Glover as judge Tyrone Kipler not credited?

NancyFelix

Chosen answer: I don't know why, but he asked not to be in the credits.

Josh Appelbaum

Question: I have two questions.1. Why would it be important, as Leo Drummond says, that his objections have to be noted, even after they are overruled? 2.After Rudy was finished with the C.E.O., Leo Drummond is allowed to ask the C.E.O. some questions, what good does it do to say that he rests on his objections?

Chosen answer: 1) Having his objections noted into the court records would make it easier if the defense decides to appeal the verdict, allowing counsel to cite what aspects of the trail he felt were mishandled. 2) Having him repeat his objections after cross-examining the CEO reminds the jury that Drummond felt it was inappropriate to use stolen documents as evidence in the case, perhaps generating some sympathy.
