Derek Charles has it all—a beautiful wife, a young son and his career is skyrocketing after he gets a promotion at the company he works for. But things aren’t as perfect when the new temp at the company becomes obsessed with him. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Obsessed”.
· Derek and Lisa are in the elevator when Lisa drops her work papers. She and Derek are picking them up. In the close-up view, Lisa reaches over with her left hand and touches Derek’s hand as she picks up a beige folder. But, in the close-up view, Lisa is only holding paper in her hand. Derek ends up handing the beige folder to her.
· Lisa is sitting in Derek’s office. In the close-up view, when Derek takes a sip of coffee, he’s holding the Starbucks cup in his left hand. It cuts to a left side view and he’s holding the cup in his right hand. The scene switches to a front view again and the cup is back in his left hand. It’s back in his right hand when the scene cuts to a view over his right shoulder.
· Derek is in the employee lounge when Patrick walks in. In the front view, when Derek comments, “…as are you”, he lifts his left hand to point and he’s holding paper. It cuts to a wider view when Patrick mentions, “…it’s not like the old days”, and Derek is holding a bottle of juice in his left hand. It cuts to a close-up front view of Derek and his left hand is elevated and empty with the juice bottle sitting on the counter.
· Derek is out with the guys and decides to call Sharon. Lisa walks out of the shadows and stops at a table that has candles and a glass. The glass is still on the table with the candles in the background when she answers, “I know”. The glass is gone from the table when she leaves a couple moments later.
· CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! The chandelier falls and smashes onto Lisa. In the overhead view, Lisa’s head is tilted toward her right. It cuts to a view of Sharon looking down at her and then to a close-up of Lisa where her head is now tilted toward her left.
