Elizabethtown (2005)

Continuity mistake: When Claire and Drew talk on the phone while she is in the tub, as she says, "I'll get there (Hawaii) and sleep," there are bubbles on her and all around. In her next close-up as she says, "I'll let you go," all the bubbles differ. However, after Drew asks, "When will you be back?" as she gushes in this shot, all the bubbles are identical to the first shot. (00:53:50)

Continuity mistake: After Drew first enters his hotel room there is a close-up of the "Chuck & Cindy" gift basket. In the next shot as Drew picks it up, things are arranged differently in the basket, and even the black and red ribbons are twisted differently. (00:42:20)

Continuity mistake: In Drew's hotel room, in the shot of him removing his pants while he is telling Claire about the volume of Samson's voice, there is a huge potted plant beside the doorway to the bedroom. When he tells Claire, "They met in an elevator," that 6 ft tall plant is gone. Yet, in the shot of Drew lying on the bed wiggling his foot, that plant is back. (00:48:15 - 00:49:25)

Audio problem: In Drew's hotel room, while he sleeps, when Claire and her red sandals stomp over towards the TV to try and wake Drew, she is making loud stomping noises as if she and her heels are stomping around on a bare wood floor, but there's carpet on the floor. Obviously deliberately done for the humor. (01:20:20)

Continuity mistake: During Mitch's memorial, after Claire tells Drew, "I want you to get into the deep beautiful melancholy of..." there is a shot of the audience as Ruckus plays Freebird, and Hollie and Heather have their backs to the stage as they speak to someone, while everyone else is going wild. When it cuts to close-ups, both face the stage and Heather is jumping up and down yelling, and Hollie is laughing. (01:39:05)

Continuity mistake: When Hollie takes the stage she passes the huge photo of Mitch, beside the stage. When facing the opposite side of the ballroom from the stage, near the wet-bar on the left, there is another huge photo of a younger Mitch. Later, when the sprinklers go off, those two framed photos have actually switched places. Connie grabs the photo of Mitch which was originally near the stage and exits near the bar, and in the last shot of Ruckus playing to an empty ballroom, the other photo is beside the stage.

Continuity mistake: After just passing the Wichita sign during the road trip, there is a shot of Drew from the passenger side and both armrests are up, as he glances down at the urn. It cuts to a close-up of the urn and the armrest is down, but when it cuts back to Drew starting to pour his heart out, it is back up, and when it cuts back to the urn it's down again. These specific four shots are consecutive time-wise. (01:51:00)

Continuity mistake: When Drew reaches the "World's 2nd Largest Farmers Market" on the road trip, there is a shot of him walking up to the large entrance sign, with a small crowd walking around him. Then, a few shots later he's walking towards the entrance again, but now he's much farther away with an even greater crowd. (01:53:30)

Continuity mistake: When Drew is on the flight to Kentucky, there is an exterior shot of the airplane, which shows a massive jumbo jet, that accommodates hundreds of seats. In the interior shots of the airplane, there are 10-12 rows, totaling at most 72 seats in economy, and about 12 seats in first class, which makes for a very small airplane, similar to a Boeing 737-200. There is a very big difference in airplane size. (00:17:35 - 00:21:45)
