Bedtime Stories

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when Marty is tucking young Skeeter into bed, as Marty is sitting beside Skeeter's bed we can see the slatted blinds behind him are almost down to the bottom of the window. But as the scene comes to an end and the camera pulls back from out of the same window, the blinds are now almost pulled to the top.

Continuity mistake: When Mickey and Skeeter are in the hotel kitchen talking about Kendall's promotion, Mickey is eating food off a plate. During the scene he keeps changing from eating to not, and food appears and vanishes from his hand and his hand changes from being by his face to down, etc.

Continuity mistake: When Skeeter is making the "rice cake, banana and wheat-germ sandwich" during the scene the broken sandwich on the plate and also the banana on the counter keep on changing their position. Also, in the closeup of the sandwich after Skeeter has poured toothpaste on it the jar of wheat-germ is not visible, but in all the other shots it is right beside the plate.

Marty Bronson: Your fun is only limited by your imagination.

Question: Everything that happens in the bedtime stories and then occurs to Skeeter in real life has a (pretty much) rational explanation (e.g. the rain of gumballs, "Abe Lincoln" actually being a penny), but why on earth do the women in the restaurant jump up and start doing the hokey pokey, apparently against their will?

Chosen answer: The only reason for them to do the hokey pokey is because it's possible. Patrick said that they would do it in the story, and even in the story it's not impossible. Patrick made it happen.
