During Cecily and Gwendolyn's outdoor tea, Cecily cuts a large slice of cake that is served to Gwendolyn and placed on the corner of the tea table. After the cake is cut, the scene clearly cuts ahead to the end of the tea. In the time that elapsed during this part of the scene, a servant easily could have come by and taken the plate explaining why in subsequent shots with both Cecily and Gwendolyn and later, when Jack and Algernon take the ladies' seats at the tea table, the cake and its plate are missing.

The Importance of Being Earnest is a funny little comedy with good acting and wonderful dialog.
An adaptation of Oscar Wilde's play, the witty dialog, likable characters and hilarious situations are what make this movie such a good experience for the viewer.
Rupert Everett and Colin Firth are wonderful together. Their chemistry is just great. They deliver their lines perfectly and display the spirit of the characters and play in a magnificent way. Firth has a serious look that only adds to the fun and Everett is perfect as the not very trustworthy but seductive Algy.
Reese Witherspoon, beautiful, virginal but wicked, plays Cecily and we cant help but fall in love with her. Dame Judy Dench well what can I say about this Lady. Class, charisma, an acting goddess. Divine work simply put.
TIOBE is a sweet movie. Its romantic, very amusing and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. It will make you happy and relaxed.
