Factual error: The shuttle's original mission was to service Hubble, yet when the shuttle is wrecked, Kowalsky moves with Stone to the ISS, which just happens to be "a short hike away." Hubble orbits at an altitude of 350 miles/560km, while the ISS does so at an altitude of about 250 miles/410km. Furthermore, even if they had been able to see the ISS from Hubble's orbit, they would have only seen it speed ahead, as their orbital velocities are very different: 7.66km per second for the ISS and 7.5km per second for Hubble.

Other mistake: The old man executed in District 11 was shot in the head from behind. However, when Katniss looks out the window from above there are no blood stains on the floor, nor is there a gunshot wound to the head.

Revealing mistake: When the family's car is about to be hit by the ambulance as they try to escape downtown, Gerry is driving and his wife is up, leaning over the passenger seat talking to their daughter. The camera angle changes to a view from behind, and as the ambulance is about to hit, we can see there is nobody in the car and the ambulance driver is wearing a safety helmet. This is viewable in just a few frames.

Continuity mistake: The glass of beer Donnie knocks over at the party (which falls onto the ground floor) is at its previous place in the next shot.

Plot hole: After Bilbo frees himself from the spider's silken cocoon in the forest of Mirkwood, he hides behind a tree listening to the clicks of the spiders "talk" to each other as they wrap up the dwarfs - i.e., he doesn't understand what they're saying. When Bilbo puts on the ring, all of a sudden he can understand the language of the spiders. He attacks one of them, invisible, and he can hear it ask, "Where is it?" Bilbo takes off the ring and says "Here." Then he kills the spider, with the ring off, but he can still understand the spider crying "It stings!" And Bilbo says "Sting. It's a good name." Without the ring on his finger, it doesn't seem like he should understand the spider's language.

New this month Other mistake: Anna is shown from the front as she ascends an ice staircase inside Elsa's ice castle. There are giant ice pillars to Anna's right and left. They should reflect the side of her face, but instead the reflections show her face from the front.

Factual error: In the scene where Wes Mantooth shows up to aid Ron Burgundy, the rear of a 1988-1990 era LTD Crown Victoria taxi is scene in the background. The movie takes place in 1980.

Other mistake: When Philomena and the journalist are waiting to board a return flight from Washington to London, he calls his office in London where a clock shows it is 8:55. That would make it 3:55 in D.C. It can't be 3:55 pm because it is dark; so it has to be 3:55 am. And no flights leave for London until 3 or 4 hours later.

Continuity mistake: Miss Piggy plans to marry Kermit, unaware that the frog is actually Constantine posing as Kermit. The church bells chime 3:00 but a few minutes later when he is standing at the altar, Constantine checks his watch and the time shown is 1:20.

New this month Continuity mistake: At one point, Grug gets bitten in the bum. It's clear that his undergarments are made from lion skin. Yet in the next shot where he's climbing down, his undergarments are now just plain gray.

New this month Continuity mistake: At one point near the beginning of the infiltration of the helicarriers, Captain America's chinstrap has a twist from his right jaw down to where it covers his chin. This is visible in two shots. The next time his right side is shown afterward, the twist is gone. The chinstrap is too tight for it to have flipped on its own accidentally, and the pad which covers his chin is molded so it wouldn't have sat properly on his face even if it had somehow flipped around. There were undoubtedly several prop helmets made, and this one must have been put together incorrectly.

Continuity mistake: Fella falls back into mud, in the pig pen. But his back is clean.

New this week Continuity mistake: In the scene where Stallone gets hit by the UFC fighter, he doesn't see the hit coming because he gets hit from his right side. Later on, when driving his girlfriend home from the restaurant, he is still blind in his right eye and doesn't see the car coming from the right. However, during the Grudge Match, he is suddenly blind in his left eye.

Other mistake: Barbara and Violet are talking in the car after returning from the funeral and all of the windows are closed, even though great effort was made to convey the fact that temperatures were in excess of 100°. They spend three to four minutes talking in the car and neither even breaks a sweat, when in reality, they could not have sat in a closed car in that kind of midday heat for more than 30 seconds or so without becoming incredibly uncomfortable.

New today Continuity mistake: In the scene where after Peter gets his diploma and has a chat with Gwen, he is carrying a backpack on both shoulders. As the scene continues it switches to one shoulder then both several times.
