Serial Mom

Continuity mistake: During the trial when Beverly is cross-examining Mrs. Ackerman, her neighbor, she asks if those were her scissors found sticking out of Mrs. Sterner's stomach. That's not where the scissors should have been found. After stabbing Mrs. Sterner with the scissors, Beverly pulled them out and threw them at the husband twice, both times they ended up sticking in the walls, and that is where the scissors would have been found when the police arrived.

Continuity mistake: During the opening, when the fly finally lands on a coaster, Beverly Sutphin swats it quickly and removes the swatter. Cut to a close-up, and the swatter and dead fly are still there.

Audio problem: When they are in the flea market and Carl is with the new girl, right when she notices the egg his mouth moves to say something but nothing comes out.

Trivia: Despite the opening claiming that the film is based on a true story; based on court testimony, sworn declarations, and interviews and the assurance no one involved in the crimes received financial compensation; it is entirely fictional.
