Aileen Wuornos is a world weary woman living in the Daytona Beach area of Florida. After becoming a prostitute at the age of thirteen, Aileen meets and falls for the young and naïve Selby. Aileen is desperate to keep Selby in her life, but after she's attacked by one of her "johns" and kills him, Aileen begins to murder her clientele and becomes renowned for being one of the first female serial killers in the United States. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching "Monster".

∙ When Aileen and Selby are at the skating rink, Aileen's arms are on the table in front of her. When she asks Selby "where are your friends", it cuts to a front view of Selby (over Aileen's right shoulder) and Aileen's hands are up, near her face. They're down in the close-up of Aileen. Her hands alternate between being down in close-ups and near her face in the front view of Selby.

∙ Aileen walks into the hotel room and finds Selby trying to cut the cast off of her arm. Behind Selby, there is a roll of toilet paper sitting upright on the back of the toilet. It cuts to close-up of Aileen and then back to Selby and the toilet paper is on its side.

∙ Aileen is cutting newspaper articles and putting them in the box on the coffee table. When Selby wakes up and walks into the room, the close-up of Aileen, when she says "Hey sugar", shows her closing the box. It cuts to a farther view of Aileen sitting on the couch when Selby tells her to come to bed and the box is open.

∙ After Selby leaves on the bus, Aileen is hanging over the concrete barrier on the bridge overlooking the water. In the front view, looking up, Aileen is near one of the columns and her left elbow is almost touching it. The scene cuts to a rear view and she's a couple feet away from the column.

"Monster" (2003) stars Charlize Theron, Christina Ricci, Bruce Dern, Annie Corley and Scott Wilson. It runs 109 minutes and is rated R for strong language and sexual content, and for pervasive language.
