When Oz and Jimmy talk after first "having a drive" and Oz is sitting on a waist-high wall with a panorama of Montreal behind him, his hands switch places between shots - from down at his sides, to on his lap, and then back to his sides again.
At the beginning of the end credits, we see Niagara falls with traffic passing by it. We then see Oz and Cynthia dancing with each other. [fade to black] [fade in to band] Finally, we see the band we saw earlier in the film, with the singer, performing the song "They All Laughed."
