Run Away Bride - That's Got to Be Better Than Fine
The scene where Ike (Richard Gere) takes Maggie (Julia Roberts) to buy a wedding dress. Maggie wants the one for $1000. She tries it on. Ike is reading a newspaper. It is right side up. Maggie asks Ike, "How do I look?" He keeps staring. The whole scene, if you stare at his newspaper, it is right side up. Not once does he turn the paper around. Then it shows only Julia, while Ike is looking at her. He says fine. The camera goes to Julia again and she says, "If you are reading the newspaper upside down, it's got to be better than fine." But never do you see him turn it upside down. When the camera is not on him, why would he be reading it and all of a sudden turn it upside down? You be the judge.

He sat the newspaper in his lap for a second as he looked at her. Then as he was saying, "You look...fine" he picked it back up and began reading it. So when he picked it back up, it was upside down.

Actually, I believe this scene was intended to mock a very similar scene from Pretty Woman in which Julia is shopping on Rodeo Drive and Richard Gere must go along to ensure that the amount of "sucking up" is appropriate to the amount of money being spent. You totally miss out on the similarity if you are paying too much attention to the position of the paper. I, however, must point out that the paper was upside down when she looked at him, but he was in the process of turning it right-side up when she made the comment about him reading it up-side down.

You know, people do move newspapers around you know. He might have just moved it really fast for the scene maybe? I honestly don't think this is a slip up.
