I Am Sam

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Lucy escape by bus from the custody hearing Lucy's hair changes from shot to shot.



Continuity mistake: Just after Sam's friends leave the diner, he makes a comment about how slowly Rita is eating. The little girl in the booth behind Sam reaches for her drink in 2 consecutive shots (presumably only a second apart).


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lucy reads to Sam and refuses to read the word "difficult" her hair is tucked behind her ear in at least three different ways in different shots.

Question: Can 7-year old children be put under oath?



Chosen answer: Yes, but I don't think it is possible for a child to understand the consequences behind the oath.


Question: Who is the mentally handicapped guy with thick glasses who says, "I think she's very beautiful."? He only appears in one scene and doesn't seem to contribute anything else to the movie.

Chosen answer: He's just another "member" of their video night group, and the character probably wasn't needed for the whole movie.
