The Help

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Skeeter is on the phone with the lady who is interested in the book, she has an ashtray with a lit cigarette in it. In the next shot it is gone and the cigarette is in her hand, the next time it shows her the ashtray is back in its original position.

Continuity mistake: When Skeeter enters Brent's Drugs after the ladies' meeting, Elizabeth has on a pair of purple floral earrings. When she greets Skeeter with a "hey" there are no earrings. The shot then pans to Hilly motioning Elizabeth to move over and the earrings are back again.

Factual error: When Minny is explaining to Celia how to cook/fry chicken, she lists things one can do with Crisco, all while holding the can of Crisco. The label on the can of Crisco was light blue until 1988, when it was then changed to the medium blue which is shown in the scene.
