Shock Treatment

Continuity mistake: After Brad is wheeled out of Cosmo and Nation's office, the door closes. In the next shot, Cosmo hurts himself being hit by the swinging door. (00:18:15)


Continuity mistake: While Janet is talking with her mother on the "Happy Homes" set, her father is playing golf with an automatic ball returner. In one shot, we see it plugged in. In the next shot, there is a close-up on it and it is unplugged and the cord seems to have disappeared. (00:25:15)


Continuity mistake: In the wardrobe, as Cosmo walks away, the measuring tape is under the sewing machine and there is nothing on top of the plans for the dress. When he comes back to the machine, the tape is on top of the plans. (00:41:10 - 00:42:10)


Continuity mistake: During the number "Little Black Dress," Bert Schnick pulls out a bowl of caviar and eats a bite of it. In the process, the sticky mess gets on his lips, hand, the table, and an adjacent dish. The next shot that we see him in, the mess is completely gone and he now seems to be eating a wafer. (00:43:00)


Continuity mistake: During the song "Little Black Dress", Cosmo is holding a glass of champagne in his left hand. In a shot soon after he's holding the glass in his right hand without enough time for him to have moved it. A little bit later, the glass is back in his left hand. (00:43:45)


Continuity mistake: Right before the premiere of Faith Factory, several characters are found in the room above the audience discussing some things. As Neely interviews Farley Flavors, we see Nation pouring champagne in the corner. In the next shot, they all have champagne and the bottle is gone from her hands. (01:11:15)


Continuity mistake: During the song "Duel Duet", the straps on Brad's straight jacket change position on the table at least once. (01:18:45)


Other mistake: During the 'Little Black Dress' number, look carefully at Cosmo's plans for the dress, they read 'The Brad and Janet Show' as this was to be the original title of the film. It doesn't really fit for Shock Treatment because the show being planned is only Janet, Brad is locked in a cage.

Trivia: When Betty and Ollie are talking in their office (and Ralph and Macy come in), look carefully at the table all the way to the left. There's an issue of Time Magazine that says "Cult Classics," with a picture of The Rocky Horror Picture Show's famous red lips. (That film was the predecessor to Shock Treatment).
