Continuity mistake: During the "shower scene" when Dermot comes out naked and Debra looks away with her hand on her mouth, her hands keeps changing places.

Continuity mistake: When they are at the park playing a game of rounders (similar to baseball or softball), Kat pours water down her throat, and it runs down to her pants. In one shot it's wet, and in the immediate following shot, it's dry.


Continuity mistake: The dance lessons take place the morning after stags and hens, making it Friday. But they're suppose to be two days before the wedding, so they should have been before stags and hens on Thursday. When Kat arrives at the cocktail party, from the airport, her mother gives them the itinerary. Tomorrow is young people in the park, followed by stags and hens, Friday is the picnic, then the rehearsal dinner. During the party, she's talking to her sister at the bar, after a stumble with the fiancee, Amy says they have dance lessons two days before the wedding.

Factual error: When they are leaving the USA to fly to London and are checking in at the airport, a guy walks past in an Easyjet ground handler's uniform. Easyjet doesn't operate in the USA - clearly filmed in London Gatwick airport.

Continuity mistake: Both leave for London from NY in day time. Before they arrive and Kay wakes up still on the plane, Nick says good morning. It doesn't take that long to fly from NYC even in late afternoon and arrive in London the next morning (sun up) even with the time zone difference.

Suggested correction: You're taking the line too literally. The flight attendant even says local time is 4:22 pm. It's not uncommon for people to say "good morning" to people who wake up from a nap, especially if it's a long or unplanned nap.


Nick Mercer: If you look people in the eye, they won't notice what you're wearing.
