Purple Rain (1984)

Top 10 mistakes

Directed by: Albert Magnoli

Starring: Apollonia Kotero, Morris Day, Olga Karlatos, Prince

Genres: Drama, Music, Romance

Continuity mistake: Apollonia jumps into the lake. She is soaking wet, naturally. However, soon after, she's riding on the back of Prince's motorcycle and her hair is completely dry.

Continuity mistake: Prince concentrates on the chalk mark of his father's suicide attempt in the basement just before he flips out. Funny, but I thought they only made chalk outlines for people who actually died.

Continuity mistake: During the "Lake Minnetonka" scene, Prince's motorcycle tire automagically changes from knobby to street and back.

Continuity mistake: When Apollonia originally tries to get into the club, the door slams on her foot. When she opens the door and sneaks in later, the door slowly closes behind her.

Continuity mistake: When the woman confronts Morris and Jerome on the street about how long she waited the night before for Morris, she first appears without an over the shoulder pocketbook. The camera angle changes and you can see the strap on her shoulder. The camera angle changes again and the strap is gone.

Continuity mistake: When The Kid goes home and sees his mother's crying in the front yard it is daytime. He immediately goes inside to confront his dad and the windows show that it is now night.

Continuity mistake: The Kid receives a white guitar from Appolonia placing it in his lap. They kiss. His arms are still placed on the guitar. She tells him that she is going to join Morris's group. As he jumps up and slaps her in the face, the guitar is gone.

Continuity mistake: When the waitress posts Apollonia's card on the board, the large white folded paper that was seen on the board in the previous shot of The Kid seeing her for the first time is no longer there.

Continuity mistake: When The Kid goes home after playing at the club, he arrives home without his guitar that he left the house with, and the guitar is seen inside the house later on.

Visible crew/equipment: When Morris turns to face the mirror to see what the suit that he is holding will look like pressed against him, as soon as he turns and faces the mirror, look at the right side of the mirror where the edge of the open door is, you can see a crew member with the white baseball cap ducking behind the door trying to stay out of the shot.
