Meet Joe Black

Continuity mistake: When Marcia Gay Harden is doing the final preparations for the party that night, she and Anthony Hopkins have a dialogue where they talk about favorites and children. Towards the end of the dialogue, she hugs him and the watch on her wrist says something like 10am. A minute later she hugs him again and the watch now says 12:25.

Continuity mistake: When Brad and Claire leave the cafe at the beginning of the film, and part company. Brad walks to the corner and turns around to look at Claire from a distance. Notice that an extra wearing a pink shirt walks behind Brad once and then again 2 shots later.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning where Claire and Anthony are waiting for "Drew" to arrive they are talking. She says to him while putting her hand on his tummy "Get some food in that flat tummy of yours". On the first shot of this Anthony's arm is out with his hand resting on his hip. In the next shot (as she's pulling her hand away) his arm and hand are down by his side with her arm over his. Not possible.

Question: The instrumental music being played in the hospital when Brad Pitt is talking to the Jamaican lady sounds familiar, not composed solely for the movie. Anyone know what it is?

Chosen answer: The music played is just another part of the original score composed by Thomas Newman. His music, like many composers', sounds similar in different movies on which he has worked. You may be recognizing similarities to other scores such as The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, Road to Perdition, etc.
