Corrected entry: As Annie walks toward Sam and Jonah she is holding Howard the bear and Jonah's backpack. Annie returns only the bear to Jonah; as the trio walks to the elevator Jonah is seen carrying both the backpack and the bear. (There wasn't enough time lapse between shots for the backpack to be handed over, either.)
Corrected entry: In the movie, Meg Ryan runs into the Empire State Building and begs to be allowed to go to the observation deck. In reality, Meg would've had to wait in the ticket line for an observation deck ticket and then in line to board an elevator to the top of the building. No one is allowed on the observation deck without a ticket.
Corrected entry: There is a scene near the beginning when Tom Hanks is at work, designing a house with a few other archictects. His boss, Claire, talks to Tom and the other archictects for a while. When she is leaving, she says 'La décorateur calls'; meaning in French 'The decorator is calling'. However, 'la' is feminine, and 'le' is masculine (both forms of 'the'). 'Décorateur' is the masculine form of 'decorator, and 'décoratrice' is the feminine form. So, 'La décorateur' should have been 'Le décorateur' or 'La décoratr
Corrected entry: When Annie and Walter meet in New York, they are standing outside a store window with a rotating globe. The globe rotates the wrong way. The Earth rotates in a counterclockwise direction when viewed from above the north pole, but the globe in the store rotates in a clockwise direction.
Corrected entry: When the ball comes down in New York, Jonah is sleeping to make it look like it is midnight in Seattle. Fireworks are going off in Seattle at what would actually be 9pm there.
Corrected entry: When Annie has the private investigator follow Sam and Victoria to the restaurant, the photos taken show Sam's face and Victoria's back. The photos were sent to Annie back in Baltimore, so she saw Sam's face in the pictures- when she arrives in Seattle she is looking around and Sam watches her enter the airport. How can she say she recognized Victoria (really Sam's friend) by the back of her head, yet didn't recognize Sam at the airport when she arrived?
Corrected entry: Sam and Jonah take a boat ride to Alki Beach in West Seattle. Annie follows them the entire way in her rental car. To get from their Lake Union houseboat to Alki Beach involves going over the lake, through the Ballard locks and across Elliot Bay (Puget Sound). There's no road that follows this route, and the boat trip would probably take close to an hour with the wait at the locks.
Corrected entry: When Meg Ryan arrives in Seattle and is getting off the plane, she comes through the gate and looks right at Tom Hanks standing only a few feet in front of her. He notices her avidly, and we can see that she sees him too while scanning the crowd. She looks straight at him, and couldn't have possibly missed seeing him. But she doesn't seem to recognize him. This doesn't make sense, because we know she has already received photos of Tom Hanks from the Private Investigator by this time. (She mentions this to Rosie on the phone as well.) Also, later as she follows Tom Hanks around with his son, she clearly sees him then as well. And she obviously at this point knows exactly who he is and what he looks like because of the photos. So why didn't she notice him standing so close to her in the airport, and recognize him then? And why wouldn't she later remember him as that guy she saw at the airport?
Corrected entry: When Annie is telling her mother about how she and Walter met, she says they each got each other's sandwiches: Walter got her sandwich on whole wheat bread, which he was allergic to, while she got his on white bread. However, anyone allergic to whole wheat bread would be equally allergic to white bread; wheat flour is the main ingredient in white bread.
