Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Cher was considered for the role of Barbara Rose.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Oliver and Barbara are eating dinner at either end of a long dining room table, there are two glasses in front of Oliver (when he is looking toward his food). When we see Oliver's end of the table from Barbara's perspective, the two glasses are not there.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): After Barbara runs over Oliver's car, we see a view from the left side of the crushed car. Then, after a shot of the dinner guests followed by a close-up of Barbara in the truck, there is a shot showing the front of the car, with steam suddenly rising from the engine. Since the car was not running, the engine would not have been hot, so there would have been no steam.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): During the dinner party scene, Oliver and Barbara are in the kitchen. After Oliver says, "You're not equipped to, honey", there is a close-up on Barbara in which a roll of paper towels is visible on the wall. Then there is a cut to a wider shot, and the length of towel hanging from the roll has changed.
