Im a big fan of this movie, and have read and watched just about everything that has to do with going deeper into this film

However upon watching it tonight I noticed a continuity error that I have not read about. I tried googling it, thinking for sure someone else had noticed it, but I can't find anything on it. So at this point I feel like I found an error nobody has noticed yet

(Feel free to research yourself though and prove me wrong)

Okay here is the error


At 36:46 of the film notice how Jack is leaning on his right elbow eating his eggs. Also if you want to rewind a little bit, go to where Wendy brings in the breakfast then sits on the bed. Okay, so you see Jack eating his eggs and leaning on his right elbow, well when it goes to the shot of Wendy talking-to him you'll notice that the position she is sitting in is impossible. Also when it goes back to showing both of them and Jack is still eating his eggs he is now resting on his left elbow, and they are on the opposite (left) side of the bed now.



Go check for yourself

Thought I was cool

this is interesting. I know there are lots of people that are really into finding errors in movies. apparently there are some serious ones in Gladiator with Russel crowe that the average person will never find like a camera man standing with a camera in the back ground during the battle seen in the beginning.

good catch on the shinning. I love that movie. jack Nicholson is a badass

I always get Jack Nicholson, and Jack Nicklaus confused.

You may want to check out the movie "Room 237" its basically interviews with about ten people deconstructing Stanley Kubrick films and mostly The Shining. A couple of errors in the movie are pointed out and people saying what they think the movie is truly about which could be anything from the faking of the moon landing to the holocaust. It's a good flick.

Watched Room 237 as soon as I noticed it on Netflix months ago. Was thoroughly interested the whole time.

Jack Nicholson is awesomely good at his acting profession especially in horror movies. I watched that flick during my teen years.

I noticed one in X Men 2 that I have yet to see anyone else mention. There is a scene where it shows the mutants Striker kidnapped (right before Nightcrawler saves them). However if you watch the scene carefully Nightcrawler is already in the background of the scene hidden before he even teleports.
