Odipussi (1988)

Continuity mistake: When Winkelmann, Tietze, and the Italian agent drive off there's a wild load of furniture on the rooftop. When they stop over at the latter's brother-in-law's estate the furniture arrangement has changed completely.

Odipussi (1988)

Continuity mistake: In the first club session, where Winkelmann presides, a pair of glasses appears in the pocket of his jacket right before he puts them on.

Odipussi (1988)

Other mistake: Winkelmann has the habit of confusing floors, thus trying to open his neighbor's door. When he returns home after the club session he, therefore, checks the name on the mailbox before he opens his door, but this name is much to short to be his (it's safe to assume it's not his nickname Pussi).

Odipussi (1988)

Continuity mistake: When Winkelmann enters his shop near the beginning of the movie there is something like a security sticker on the right side, but when the camera cuts to inside the sticker is gone.

Odipussi (1988)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Winkelmann and Mrs. Tietze try to make the Melzers change their sofa upholstering to something less depressing, they step out to have a private talk and end up in a muddy flower bed. When they walk back in they don't leave any marks on the terrace but heavy mud prints on the living room floor, although Winkelmann's shoes look spick-and-span after he sits down.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Reuben tries to catch Poly before she leaves for good, he sees from a distance that she climbs into a taxi. He starts running after her but stops at her house, when he sees the taxi turning around the corner and realizes that he can't catch her any more. In this last shot of the taxi the street scenery is totally different, for example there are two big trucks on both sides of the road which weren't there before, and it must be the same road because Reuben sees her from her house from where she started.

Continuity mistake: When Lisa comes back and sits on the sofa, her hair is hanging straight down her back, but it suddenly falls over her shoulder between shots.

Continuity mistake: In one of the salsa club scenes, when Polly asks Reuben when kind of guy he really is, a group of chatting people appears in the background behind Reuben between shots.

Continuity mistake: After Reuben's arrival in Los Angeles, where he is supposed to meet Leland van Lew, he sees him entering the service elevator. They go up to the rooftop together from where Leland does a base jump, using a parachute that he is wearing under his jacket. However, when we saw him at the ground floor there was nothing under his jacket: in the front the belt should have been partly visible, and also the bulge in the back wasn't there.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben leaves Polly's place after the bathroom incident he carries the loofah with him wrapped in plastic bag. Between shots the white plastic bag suddenly shows a blue and red printing.

Continuity mistake: In the bathroom scene Reuben turns on the shower. A little later a bewildered Polly is looking at the bottom of the door door, from where thick steam clouds emanate. When it cuts back inside to Reuben, the steam is moving up and nowhere near the door.

Continuity mistake: When Polly meets Reuben for the first time, the napkin switches form her left to her right hand between shots when the camera angle changes.

Visible crew/equipment: When Reuben and Stan have a joint pee, there is a front shot near the end of the scene where the rectangular stage lights are reflected in Stan's glasses, which looks quite awkward because the white bars cover his irises.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben returns from St. Bart he removes the throw pillows from the bed, which has a bent wooden back with sharp edges. In the next shot, when he goes to bed, the wooden back is flat and has round edges.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben catches Lisa in the act with Claude, the first thing we see are one of her flippers flapping against a metal rod. When we see the culprits in toto, their feet are too far away from the rod to touch it.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Reuben and Lisa lie on the beach he goes through the real-estate page of his newspaper. He draws a circle around one of the ads at the top of the page, but when we see a close-up of the page the circle is somewhere down towards the middle.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben carries Lisa over the doorstep a chameleon falls into her lap and he drops her on the ground. Although she falls on her back the bruise we see at the beach is at the inner side of her thigh and looks like a rape mark.

Continuity mistake: For the arrival at St. Bart three different planes are used: The shadow on the ocean belongs to a single-propeller machine, the following close-up shows two engines and an antenna on top of the cockpit, and when the plane lands the antenna is gone and the engines are much smaller.

Continuity mistake: When Reuben makes his toast at his wedding Lisa is holding her hands in front of her belly, but when the camera angle changes when he says "I knew she's the one" her arms are hanging down.

Continuity mistake: When Bob carries Charlotte to her room he unlocks the door with a key which appears to be in his hand. However, there was no key in his hand while he was carrying her down the corridor, and he didn't retrieve from anywhere (which would have been difficult anyway with her still in his arms).
