Continuity mistake: When Igby is at his Godfather's party, and is drinking from the wine glass with cigarette ash in it, the glass changes hands. When the ash is put into the glass, he is holding it in his right hand, then the camera angle changes and it is now in his left hand, where it remains for the rest of the scene.
