Christmas Inheritance

Revealing mistake: Ellen and the cab guy are having some stilted small chat during their drive across town. Just look outside the car window; yellow antique shop sign, blue sign, purple store, green one...They are not exactly generic and makes the fact that it is all takes of them driving down the same road back and forth obvious and hilarious. In the first wide shot you can even spot the fact that the road past the block they are driving through is clean, they didn't spray shaving cream down there. (00:17:30)

Revealing mistake: When the cab hits Ellen's suitcase, the suitcase slides on the 'snow' leaving a trail that makes obvious it is a creamy substance with a consistence nowhere near real snow (apparently they used shaving cream). (00:16:00)

Revealing mistake: In the scene with the young mom settling in Ellen's room, the baby is crying loudly every single moment when their face is not shown. They don't move their arms or legs, their cheeks don't move, nothing about them is compatible with the canned cry put in editing. (00:49:30)

Revealing mistake: Even in the middle of the night just after a snowstorm and with plenty comments made about the freezing cold, the need for clothes heavier than the simple coat Ellen is wearing, etc., not the faintest hint of breath condensing can be ever seen throughout the movie. Exception are very rare; once in front of the hotel when Ellie ships the truckload of auction items.

Continuity mistake: Ellen received the mission from her dad. He boyfriend is opening the fridge door, which contains a lemon. The lemon is in a different position at the cut. Moreover, in that new shot he is holding the bottle in his left hand, but he holds it with both in the front view that follows. (00:09:20)
