Hot Fuzz

Continuity mistake: Nick's character is eating an ice cream in the police car and eats the whole thing. When the shot changes to Simon's side, he's still got about half of it left.

Continuity mistake: When Angel is chasing the shoplifter the distance between Angel and the gold statue keeps changing in different shots.

Hot Fuzz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Michael attacks Nicholas in his hotel room, during this scene objects being broken or shoved (such as stuffed monkey, radio, lamp, picture) change their position, or the characteristics of the actual damage, change from shot to shot. Additionally, when Nicholas is slammed into the picture it begins to fall forward, but next shot it rests upright against the wall.

Continuity mistake: In the pub, when Nicholas and Danny overturn a table and take cover, in following shots the holes and damage to the table either disappear or change significantly, depending on camera angle.

Continuity mistake: When Doris comes into the station with Danny's birthday cake she has a pair of fake boobs over her sweater. But when she puts the cake down on the table they have disappeared, even though she was holding the cake with both hands.

Continuity mistake: When the police are running to the door of Somerfield, Danny is in front. Camera cuts and now Angel is arriving at the trolleys first.

Continuity mistake: When Martin Blower and Eve Draper get pulled over for speeding by Angel and Danny, Eve's arm alternates between being on the door frame and being by her side at the start of the conversation between Angel and Martin Blower.

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas and Danny break into the bar in the village shoot out, the barman has a double barrel shotgun, so it's only capable of holding 2 shells and firing either both shells or one at a time. Either way, if you watch closely, he lets off 3 shells.

Continuity mistake: When Angel asks his superior why everyone is eating chocolate cake, behind Angel you can see Danny with a literal few crumbs left on the plate. When the Sergeant replies to Angel and Danny looks up smiling, you can see there is now a lot more cake on the plate.

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas sits in front of Frank Butterman's desk, as they discuss his idea of multiple killers, one of the window shade slats is flipped up and out of position. After a brief close-up of Butterman, the slats are perfectly aligned in Nicholas's close-up.

Continuity mistake: When Angel is chasing the shoplifter, he stops to look at the swan for five seconds. In this time, the shoplifter who is running away hardly gets away from Angel. With the speed he is running he should be at least twice as far away from Angel as he actually is.

Continuity mistake: When diving into the pub, Danny and Nick's position is constantly changing through the dive. In some shots they are nearly on the floor, but still high in the air in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: When Angel is chasing the shoplifter down the lane, the lane changes in style instantly. From old style rock walls to garages and trees, instantly.

Continuity mistake: When Angel pulls over the yellow car, there is already writing on his notepad. The notepad then is clear, and he starts writing in his notepad.

Continuity mistake: In the pub scene where Angel asks Fisher if he has been stabbed before, Fisher's level of beer in his glass changes slightly depending on the camera angle.

Continuity mistake: The shoplifter at the station constantly changes stance depending on the camera angle; he leans against the wall, then slouches forward.

Continuity mistake: When Angel is talking to his superiors about the transfer, his collar changes from being not tucked in to being tucked in to his shirt.

Continuity mistake: When Micheal (the 'yarp' guy) has been knocked out by Angel, Danny appears and gives Angel his notepad. Angel then turns to leave twice.

Continuity mistake: When Angel, Danny and the Andies are running with the trolleys to the butchers in Somerfield, two others give cover fire and appear in the isle behind Angel and Danny. Camera cuts and they appear again.

After Leslie Tiller is stabbed with the garden shears, when Nicholas chases after the hooded figure, just as he dives over a table with potted plants the blue crash mat is visible under the table. (Slow motion is not necessary.)



When they do the handbrake turn at the very end of the film, we see the gear stick for a fraction of a second. Freeze-frame it and you'll see it has the initials "HF" on it.
