Other mistake: In the scene where an unemployed Ted Kramer character is in the offices of another advertising firm negotiating with two executives for a job, he tells them he will take a pay cut if they hire him but that this is a one-time offer. The executives are reluctant to make a decision because supposedly, it is Friday at 4:30 p.m., the weekend before Christmas. However, the shot through the window behind where Ted is sitting shows a bright and sunny New York City, probably at high noon since there are no building shadows. If it were really 4:30 p.m., the city would obviously be much darker, particularly in late December. Also, given the greenery that can be seen, it is probably not even winter.
