You've Got Mail - Screen Saver
Okay, in one scene, Tom is talking to Mag on the computer. He types something, hits send, and walks away. It shows her quickly, her responding, him walking around. this took probably a total of 15 seconds, but when he comes back to his computer the "flying stars" screen saver is on, there's no way one would come on that fast. Nothing big, but the director should be a little better at that.

If you look at it again, you'll see it's supposed to be time lapsed.

He could have put it on. Or set it so it could come on within 15 sec. Mine comes on within 10 sec.

I have YET to see a movie where real time and "movie" time matches.

If you will notice, the entire movie is time lapsed. Even in the beginning scenes where the two main characters are talking after the "caviar incident." You will notice the outfit changes when it flips back to each character. This is not a slip-up.

I Agree with DaBear. It is supposed to be a time lapse. Also it could have been put on fast. You can make your screen saver to go on at any time from on second to six hours.

It isn't supposed to be happening at the same exact time. It was probably close to the same time, but there could've been like 5 minutes in between or something.

I think that he just had it set to come on fast. :|

Wow, with a movie that's all about people e-mailing, you sure are vague about when this slipup happens. The only time I can remember when Tom is walking around is after he gets her e-mail asking what had happened and why he didn't show up to their meeting. He hits a button, the computer says "goodbye," and he walks around a bit before comming back and writing her. What scene is the flying symbols?? What were they talking about?? I can't find this slipup.

This may not be a slip up. If he had the Hot Corners configured for his screen saver, it could have started that fast.

What -- you've never seen Hitchcock's "Rope," the classic example of a "real time" movie? It is entirely possible to depict an accurate time lapse in film. Anything else should have some kind of explanation (even if it's merely hinted at obliquely).
