The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: Jules ordered some of her own clothes to do some quality control. In the close-up of the box it is shown on the far right of the screen that the person opening the box put also down the lid. The next shot shows Jules with the lid still in hand. (00:42:50)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: Ben is having morning coffee with Jules' hubby and daughter. Paige says that Ben being an intern is "hysterical." Ben nods; the girl is eating a spoonful of her cereal but in the next shot she's just looking at him, the spoon is in her bowl. (00:42:05)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: Ben rings Jules' doorbell for the first morning as her driver, and her husband answers the door. His hand is down his side. He then points at the house in reverse shot, but as the camera returns to the previous angle, Matt's hand never left his side. (00:41:30)

The Intern (2015)

Other mistake: In the scene with De Niro answering the early morning phone call from Becky that tells her that Jules' driver is MIA, the alarm clock is turned off - in other parts of the movie you could see the sweep hand's constant motion, absent here. (00:40:45)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: When Ben dials Fiona's number looking the number up in the card, there's a close-up of his kitchen table where the plates and glasses are in a different position compared to the rest of the scene (the salad bowl touches the paper towel, and the wine glass is off the line between the boards).

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: In the close-up of the kitchen isle all set up for the 'Play-Doh challenge', the pink jar is by the hubby's cake, but in the other shots it's next to the kid's. (00:36:45)

The Intern (2015)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: The morning Ben cleans up the messy desk, there are two opening shots of the building. The first one shows the sidewalk in front of the factory perfectly sunlit with noon shadows, followed by another one with significantly different shadows (more appropriate to the early morning scenario). (00:27:10)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: Ben just got out of Jules' office with her jacket to send to the cleaners. Becky calls him; she is holding the folders to her chest. She does not change position in the reverse shot. But in the rest of the scene she holds the folders against her side. (00:26:10)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: When Jules slides her Yves Saint Laurent jacket across the table, the jacket is bundled up in a different way in the separate shots. (00:25:45)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: Jules feels icky at the sight of the abominable mess left on a desk by the employees. In the close-up of the guy that dumps a box on it, the items are not in the same position as in the other shots - look at the Kate Moss book at the top, and at the red striped shirt that suddenly shows its label.

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: Jay is telling Ben the story of his faux pas with Becky. When he gets to the part about the mail and mentions the subject, the same person in the background (dark green short, light bag) is at the same spot even after a long cut on Jay that details the quantity of OS in "sorry." Same thing a few seconds later when he talks about the emoticon's tear and another girl, closer to him in the foreground, moves right to left. (00:22:35)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: Ben is tutoring Davis when Jay interrupts them saying "Hey, look, here she comes, watch how she won't even..." The sentence is spoken across two separate shots, and in the second he's pointing at himself, in the first he is not. (00:21:35)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: Ben is talking to the secretary about the 3:55 appointment. When Becky points at the door to Jules' office, she is holding a pen that vanishes in the next shot. (00:17:35)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: Asked by Jay, Ben says that he's gonna be a personal intern. A woman on the background is walking left to right. "Nice", he immediately replies, and the woman meanwhile already reached the other side of the room. (00:15:45)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: When De Niro does a De Niro face at the intern that will help him with the laptop a moment later, he has his leather organizer in hand. He then opens the briefcase, which contains also the organizer. (00:15:00)

Other mistake: Ben randomly picks one of the laptops at the intern table. He does not even know how to turn it on, and hits the space bar because Lewis tap it on his own, but somehow that laptop he chose out of all the others is properly logged in with his credentials, because his own personal email is there waiting to be read. (00:15:00)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: On the first day as intern, Ben sits down at the desk and there's a wide shot of the room. The 'normal age' intern opens the laptop immediately, but when we see a moment later that he empties his bag's content on the desk, the laptop is closed. (00:14:45)

The Intern (2015)

Continuity mistake: When Jules' secretary follows her and tells her about the meeting and then her mom, a black guy in a blue shirt and grey sweater walks around the line of desks in the background twice in a row and carries a folder with a different hand in the first 2 shots. Similarly, a girl with a pink sweater repeats the action (walking past them and checking them out). (00:07:40)
