Ghost

Revealing mistake: When Carl is being dragged away by the demons, you can see the cable line that he's attached to. May be fixed on DVD.

Revealing mistake: Early in the movie, just after Patrick Swayze got shot, he chases after Rick Aviles. He was dead at this time, but he doesn't know that yet. He comes back walking through rain and you can see his reflection in the water on the street.

Revealing mistake: When the movie starts, Carl and Sam exit the subway station. A few members of the public/extras/background can't help but stare at the camera during the time it pans past them, firstly the man at the back as they are arriving up from the stairs, then the man with a hat, then the truck unloader on the right of the screen before they look at the red car. They all either seem to be starting at the camera, or looking or for thier cues to start acting.

Revealing mistake: When Sam is going back to Oda Mae's, when he's walking toward the door his reflection is visible walking the same way, though he's not in front of the window at an angle this would be possible for a few seconds. I don't know exactly what could cause on the filming side of the mistake, just that there's no way the reflection would look like that. (01:18:05)

Revealing mistake: When Carl is accessing the recently closed account, he moves to a second computer to attempt it. Look at the screen before he gets there. It already has the "account closed" and account information blinking on the screen. It's highly unlikely that he tried the account on that computer before, because when he first leaves his chair he looks around the room for an open computer. (01:31:30)

Revealing mistake: When Oda Mae and Molly are running from Carl, they go to the loft upstairs. As they are running on the planks, the camera shot is from the bottom, and you can see the faces aren't of Demi and Whoopi.

Jack's Revenge

Revealing mistake: When Willy enters the apartment and heads for the stairs, Sam dives at him in anger and flies through him. In this shot you can see how poorly Willy was added into the scene. The coloration isn't even close and Willy looks 2-dimensional. (00:32:30)

Revealing mistake: When Sam and Carl are fighting in the end scene and Sam is coming from the closet he punches him, but it's visible that he gets punched with a boxing glove.

Suggested correction: I watched this part in slow motion, and there is no boxing glove. Rather, Sam punches Carl with both of his fists.

Visible crew/equipment: When moving into their apartment Patrick Swazye kicks the statue to make it swing so they can get it inside. As they are looking at the statue, two moving men cross in back of them carring a mirror and as they pass you can see the director and camera crew in the reflection.

Question: Did the subway ghost commit suicide or did someone push him on the train tracks?

Joey221995

Answer: He tells Sam he was pushed and takes exception to Sam's incredulous response, adding that he didn't jump nor did he fall.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: He killed himself by jumping in front of the train. During his conversation with Sam, he's offended by any suggestion that he committed suicide. Soon afterwards, he forgets who Sam is, which indicates that he has mental health issues. He then jumps in front of a train.
