Continuity mistake: At one point about halfway through the movie, Jerry Falk sits down in his apartment to translate his thoughts onto his laptop, sort of a mini diary, and the closeup shot of the notebook monitor shows he has typed up over 3 lines worth of text (at 18-point font size setting, no less). Then the next wider shot that includes the laptop screen shows he hasn't finished even the third line; not only that, the text is now in more typical (smaller) font size.
