Continuity mistake: In the second tent scene, just before Jack and Ennis kiss, Jack's left arm changes from being at his side in the first shot of Ennis (as Jack touches Ennis' face) to up around Ennis' neck in the second shot of Ennis (after we see Jack's face). Also, Ennis' left collar goes from flat to sticking up during the scene.

Continuity mistake: When Ennis brings Alma Jr. and Jennie to Alma at the Supermarket, Alma Jr. grabs a jar of peanuts off the end display. This causes a group of jars to come crashing down, breaking glass and causing peanuts and glass to fly all over. Alma squats down to the floor to help pick up the broken jars and peanuts, but when Alma bends back up and goes to bring the girls to the front of the store, all the jars that had crashed and broken on the end display shelf are now upright and whole before anyone had had the time to pick them all up.

Trivia: In the Middle East, a censored version of the movie was released that eliminated all of the homosexual content. The result apparently didn't make any sense at all as the scenes were important plot points.

Trivia: Actor Randy Quaid, who played Jack and Ennis' boss in the movie, filed a lawsuit against the studio, claiming that the studio had made him believe that it was a low budget movie rather than a big production as to secure his pro-acting talents for cheap fees. So far, both sides have differing opinions on whether Quaid's suit was settled or not.

Question: Why were Jack and Ennis fighting on the hill on Brokeback Mountain? Ennis's nosebleed looked pretty serious.

Chosen answer: At first they were just wrestling and horsing around. However, underlying tensions and frustrations over their impossible situation, and Ennis' reluctance to commit to Jack, causes their anger (particularly Jack's) to overtake them, and it erupts into a full-blown fight.

Question: Why did Lureen lie to Ennis about how Jack died?

Chosen answer: Lureen may have been lied to about how Jack died. As a kid, Ennis had seen the body of a man that was killed for being gay. Knowing that Jack was 'seeing' other men, Ennis knew that he must have been killed for that reason instead of the way that Lureen explained it. Even if she did know the truth, she may have lied to him because she didn't want Ennis to know how Jack really died.

Jane Doe

Question: What exactly did Jack do with that man in Mexico?

Chosen answer: The man was a male prostitute. Jack engaged him to have sex.
