Corrected entry: Towards the beginning, Kevin Spacey walks in on Petal changing clothes, asking her if her friend had left. Petal is pulling on a tight pair of blue jeans. A second later, she walks out into the hall and she's now wearing a leather miniskirt.

Correction: Petal doesn't leave immediately: she puts the pair of tight jeans on (08:48), then, because she cannot button them up, she pulls the jeans off (09:10), then she puts the leather miniskirt on (09:24) and she leaves after meeting Bunny and opening a can of beer (09:44). More than a minute passes between trying on the jeans and leaving in a miniskirt.

Continuity mistake: When Quoyle meets Petal for the first time she gets into his car totally drenched. A bit later they stop for something to eat, and Petal's hair is completely dry. (00:04:40)
