It's Complicated

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin are sitting on a lawn swing. The number of chains supporting the swing varies between shots. Sometimes the back stay is a single chain and sometimes it is a double chain.

Suggested correction: The swing supports never change. There's suspending chains on both sides of the bench; both chains are each attached to another chain with (2) connection points, one on the lower front and one on the upper back (4 points total on the bench).

Continuity mistake: During the bath scene where Jane is in the tub and Jake is sitting there talking, the candle on the window sill changes location. In the close up shots the candle and mug on the window sill are right next to one another. In the wide shots, the candle is towards the middle of the window.


Continuity mistake: In the shot where the family is together in the kitchen and Jake walks in, Harley is pouring wine into a wine glass. He pours it all the way to the top. The camera pans away for a quick second, and then pans back to Harley and the glass is now half full.
