Misery

Revealing mistake: During the big fight scene, just as Annie Wilkes falls to the floor and hits her head on the typewriter, the actress is replaced by a really bad looking Kathy Bates dummy!

Audio problem: In the scene where James Caan's character is lying in bed, practising grabbing a large knife from his arm sling, there is the metallic sound as he pulls out the knife. In the sling are his arm and the knife. There is nothing the knife could be pulled against to make the sound.

Continuity mistake: When Buster and his wife Virginia, first get in their 4x4 truck to head down the road, they discover that broken tree limb. Before he yells "stop!", the only part of the road not covered in snow is the tire tracks. After he walks back up the hill (and Annie drives by), the road has no snow on it.

Other mistake: During the big fight at the end, when Paul slams the typewriter over Annie's head it hits the floor upside down, but in the next shot it has magically been flipped over, ready to beam Annie in the face.

Revealing mistake: When Paul goes through Annie's scrapbook, a fast reader may notice that several newspaper clippings (although having different headlines and being based on separate events), have the exact same story underneath. The text has simply been repeated, rather than a new report being created for each story.

Continuity mistake: Buster gets to Annie's house, and as Paul turns in his wheelchair, the bandages on his leg disappear between shots.

Other mistake: In one scene, Paul locks the door, but Annie enters the room without unlocking the door.

Continuity mistake: At the end, Paul sticks his thumbs in Annie's eyes causing them to bleed. Next shot, the blood is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Annie shows Paul her gun, she says "I might put bullets in it," then leaves the room. It's pouring with rain, but when Annie steps out the front door, you can see her hair is already wet before being outside.

Continuity mistake: When Paul is dining with his agent at the end, after he puts his book down, he picks up a menu. But when the camera angle changes to face him, his hand is empty.

Continuity mistake: When Buster flies over Annie's house, there's a shot of the house from outside and the roof is covered in snow. The shot from the helicopter, the amount of snow changes, including a couple sections being nearly void of snow. There are also a lot of extra tire tracks.

Continuity mistake: When Annie lifts Paul off the floor and lays him back into the bed, there is initially no tape over the brace on Paul's left knee. In the next shot, which is somewhat bird's eye view, there are three pieces of white tape over the brace, then there are none again when she finishes lying him down.

Continuity mistake: When Annie is shaving Paul, she doesn't shave his chin, but, a second later, his chin is shaved.

Continuity mistake: When Annie arrives with the tray with champagne etc Sheldon's newest chapter is placed next to his typewriter leaning one way, but in the next clip they are leaning the other way.

Continuity mistake: Paul is eating in bed and by the plate are some pain killers. The position of the pain killers in relation to the plate changes between a few shots.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Paul types "what else was there...?" on his typewriter, it is all on one line in a closeup. In the next shot it is on two separate lines when he writes "The End."

Hamster

Visible crew/equipment: When Paul is in the kitchen, he looks at the knives. In the stove is the reflection of a person with a white shirt, but Paul is wearing a red shirt.

Other mistake: When Annie shoots the sheriff in the back, he fall forwards on the staircase where he stood. Annie walks down without moving around the corpse of the sheriff. She just advances forward as if he isn't there.

Revealing mistake: When Paul and Annie are getting ready to tap glasses, you can see Annie deliberately knocks over the candle. She moves her hand right into the candle to make it fall over.

Continuity mistake: When the sheriff looks at the last newspaper article about Annie, the caption reads "There is a higher justice than that of man..." Then when it zooms in on the caption it is switched to "There is a justice higher than that of man..." (The 2nd one matches the Misery book quote).
