Water for Elephants

Continuity mistake: Three-quarters into the film, Jacob brings Rosie, the elephant, to Reece Witherspoon's tent. Her husband, August, appears and seconds later there is, out of the blue, a cigarette between his fingers.


Character mistake: When they get the elephant, she is a she, but the boss man continually refers to her as "the bull", which means male.


Jacob: I don't know if I picked that circus. But something told me that circus picked me.

Jacob: Who's the woman who works with the horses?
Camel: That ain't no woman, that's the boss' wife and she don't talk to nobody and you don't talk to her.

August: You do right by me, I'll show you a life most suckers can't even dream of.
