Something's Gotta Give

Revealing mistake: When Marin and Jack Nicholson first enter her mother's house, Marin is wearing white pants, and it is noticeable that she has a thong on. When she gets into bed with Jack, she is in full underwear.

Revealing mistake: Right before Jack Nicholson sees Diane Keaton naked, there are shots of Keaton getting undressed. There is a close up of swollen feet that you can see are obviously not Diane Keaton's. The far shot shows her with smaller feet and legs.

Continuity mistake: When Erica and Harry are having a picnic at the beach, they go for a little walk and it starts raining. They hurry back into the house and, the first time they are seen in close shots, they're absolutely dry. A couple of seconds later, in other two different close ups, they appear to be soaking wet.

More quotes from Something's Gotta Give

New this week Question: If Erica arrived after Marin and Harry, why was she surprised to see someone in the kitchen? Surely she saw a car in the driveway. And where did that car go? It wasn't in any scene after Marin and Harry parked. Supposedly, they shopped for groceries and ate dinner the same day they arrived. Why did they change clothes so often? It seemed Marin had her black bathing suit on under her dress at the store but wore something different at dinner. Harry had three different shirts, Erica changed from a scoop to a turtleneck and Zoe seemed to put a sweater over her blue top while shopping but changed at dinner.

New this week Answer: This sounds like it could an editing issue. Movies often film multiple scenes that, for whatever reason, are later deleted, but sometimes portions of those scenes are compressed into one sequence, even though there are obvious inconsistencies like wardrobe gaffs.
