Goofs
The morning after Tom and Violet's engagement party, Tom's hand is inconsistently holding to Violet's arm in succeeding sequences.

When Tom is cake tasting, the very first shot shows the Tiffany-box cake already part eaten, then in the next few shots it disappears until the lady brings a fresh Tiffany-box cake to the table.
Share this
Throughout the film, Violet and her colleagues refer to people taking part in their psychology experiments as "subjects". This term is no longer used in psychology (and has not been used for decades) as it is thought to be disrespectful and has unethical, dehumanising connotations. Rather, today psychologists use the term "participant" to refer to people who take part in an experiment.
