Suggested correction: I am watching the movie right now and I'm at this scene, and she is barefoot when she jumps on his back. Not sure what you thought you saw but you're wrong.

We do indeed see Bella's left colorful shoe just as she jumps onto Edward's back.

Continuity mistake: Charlie hands Bella off to Edward at the altar, she is carrying her bouquet, the next shot is from behind them, Bella, Edward, and the pastor in the shot, she still has her flowers. In the next frame, from the front, it's Bella, Edward and the pastor's back, flowers are gone, and they never show up again. She didn't hand them off, there was no one to hand them too.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bella has just given birth and stops breathing, she is wearing a gray shirt. Then Jacob starts CPR on her and her outfit changes to include a robe.


Continuity mistake: As Bella walks down the aisle during the wedding ceremony, a single strand of her hair has gotten caught in the right-hand corner of her mouth, then it disappears, then it is back again. (This is harder to see on DVD than it was on the movie screen.) (00:13:40)

Continuity mistake: When Jacob and his pack meet with Sam's pack, Seth and Leah are standing behind Jacob the entire time. At the end of the scene, when Sam's pack leaves, we cut to a shot of Jacob from the same angle as the previous shots where Seth and Leah were, and they are gone, with no indication that they left.

Continuity mistake: As Edward and Jacob are working to revive Bella just after she gives birth, Bella's eyes keep changing from being open and unblinking to tightly closed. The "making of" documentary on the "DVD Extra", showed a life-size dummy of an emaciated Bella with closed eyes that was used in more physical scenes. You can tell it's the dummy whenever Bella is shown with her eyes shut.

Continuity mistake: When Edward is showing Bella the bruises on her arm and shoulder, his wedding ring is on his right hand. They are looking in a mirror, but the camera is on Edward, not the reflection.


Continuity mistake: When Bella is first seen pregnant, she is wearing grey pants, a blue shirt and navy jacket, Edward is wearing a brown shirt, and Carlisle is wearing a blue mock turtleneck. On what is supposed to be the next day (and after having seen them wearing different clothing), all three are wearing the same clothes again while in the library/makeshift hospital room. They are discussing a cracked rib that was causing Bella pain the day before. These scenes were obviously meant to be back-to-back, but were rearranged in editing.

Continuity mistake: When Edward transforms Bella, he bites her neck first, then her arms, and so on. In the very next close up of Bella, there are no bite marks in her neck at all.

Revealing mistake: Notice when Edward picks up Bella at the island. He kind of stumbles like Bella is heavy although he has superhuman strength.

More trivia for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

Question: In the credits at the end, there is a Volturi scene where Aro reads a message written by his receptionist "Swwwweet Bianca." He points out that she spelt Carlisle's name incorrectly, then he gestures to the guards, to take her away and kill her. Of the note, he says, "First, it's the spelling, then the grammar." What does this mean? (What does he mean by "then the grammar"?).

Answer: He's merely justifying why Bianca should be killed. While reading the note, he notes that she misspelled "Carlisle", then surmises she'll also make grammar errors. Aro does not tolerate imperfections, has little regard for human life, and most likely intended to dispose of her.
