Continuity mistake: When Corrine takes off her blouse, she shows her children seventeen scars on her back that she got from being whipped by the grandmother. Later in the movie, when Corrine is dancing at a party, she is wearing a strapless dress and there are no scars or any signs that she was struck with a whip.
Visible crew/equipment: When Bette Midler and Shelly Long have just found out Michael Saunters is the bad guy, there is a helicopter looking for them and they're standing in the outdoor shower stall. Bette Midler says "They're the good guys" and they run out to try to get the helicopter's attention. Right after they run out of the stall, you can easily see one or two men in the stall - they're either holding the stall up against the wind of the helicopter or they're there for some other unexplainable reason.citysister
Factual error: 26,000 people work in the Pentagon. If they were to all file past one person so he can try to pick out a crime suspect, and each person takes just two seconds to walk past, be checked, eliminated and sent on their way, it will take fourteen and a half hours to clear the building. There are going to be some very unhappy people at the back of the queue.
Continuity mistake: When Margaret is getting rid of the evidence of Billy Hahn visiting her, she crumples up the papers in his file and tosses them onto the file. The next shot showing her getting her gun out of the drawer, the paper is gone, then a different angle shows the large crumpled wad again, then again, a new angle shows an even bigger crumpled wad.ChiChi
Continuity mistake: When he puts the pins in her eyes, evey time it is shown it's different - sometimes they are all covered in blood, sometimes only some of them or one, and sometimes there's no blood at all.
