Benny & Joon

Continuity mistake: When Sam is making grilled cheese sandwiches with the ironing board and iron, he finishes one sandwich and places it on top of another on the side table. After Joon's explanation of cheese and culture the camera cuts back to Sam placing another finished sandwich on the side table on the same place that he placed the first but there is only one sandwich there where there should be two.

Continuity mistake: When we see Joon's medical records at Dr Garvey's clinic her address is listed as 'N 825 Water Street', but when Joon produces her Medical Alert card as a form of ID to the cop in the next scene it shows her address as 'N 301 Cedar Street'

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sam is doing his Buster Keaton act, his tie is done up. When he jumps in his hat it's down, then when Benny is helping him up it's back up again

More quotes from Benny & Joon

Question: What exactly is wrong with Joon? I don't think they mentioned it in the movie, but does anyone have a good guess?

Chosen answer: I would guess high functioning autistic. Similar to Rainman. Especially her being obsessive compulsive.
