Continuity mistake: When at the Men's Association, Mike Wellington raises a glass and toasts Stepford. He does this with his left hand. When the shot changes to show all the men, he is still doing it with his left hand. But when the shot changes back to Mike, the glass is now in his right hand, with no time between shots to change hands.

Continuity mistake: It's raining when Joanna goes to the Men's Association to find her husband and children. When she walks in the door her hair is wet but her clothes are completely dry. (01:01:50)
