And in defense of all the poor script supervisors out there (who ARE the ones watching for continuity...and for some reason are often cute young women....) stuff like the "magic rear view mirror" are NOT continuity errors. They are necessary filmmaker's choices so you can, in this case example, see the actors faces while they are in the car.

Storytelling trumps continuity every-time.

Oops. I knew that (gaffer's tape holding the microphone to the boom and all that). My memory isn't what it used to be (continuity errors and such). Sorry about that. Then where did the term "gaff" come from? Like this "technical gaff": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_K2GAc_pRI
