Die Hard (1988)

Other mistake: When the terrorists shoot the armoured vehicle from high up in the building, the angle at which the rocket launcher is fired seen from inside the building is simply wrong for a target that is virtually directly below them. The angle shown would have hit much further away. This is true for both shots but more obvious for the second one.

The Young Ones (1982)

Sick - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Neil starts to sneeze, he carefully puts his hands close to his nose to give the impression that the green jet is coming from his nose. However, in one shot, just before the guys bag him we see the jet appearing from his hand while his hand is several centimetres from his nose.

The Young Ones (1982)

Boring - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When the seriously injured chip is voicing her last words to the carrot, the wire moving her is painfully obvious coming in from the bottom right of the screen. Immediately after that we zoom in on the carrot and can easily see the wire moving it too.

The Young Ones (1982)

Oil - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Neil opens the cupboard and all the dishes fall out, you can see whatever was used to push the dishes out as it is pulled back.

Continuity mistake: During the escape from Wing Kong Trading, Jack climbs up from the sewer to figure out the escape route. He runs to the door and almost immediately behind him, everyone has managed to climb up from the sewer much faster than would be possible.

Continuity mistake: During the escape from Wing Kong Trading, they all jump into a pool and swim through a pipe which is not big enough for people to pass each other. Despite the fact that Margo and Jack are in the water before Gracie, she manages to come up for air before both of them.

Spy Game (2001)

Continuity mistake: Towards the end Commander Wiley is given the order to start operation Dinner Out. The on screen titles indicate that he is near Su Cho but at every other point in the movie it is spelt as Su Chou.

Roman Holiday (1953)

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Gregory Peck pretends to bump into Audrey Hepburn on the Spanish Steps we see several shots of a clock in the background showing the time is around 4.55pm. When he sits down the clock is around 11:30. Then the very last time we see it, the time is 3.50pm.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Frank is pretending to be a Doctor at the bedside of the kid who has just had a bicycle accident a nurse hands him a swab. While he talking to the other Doctors the swab is visible but when the shot changes his arms are suddenly folded and we can no longer see it.

Continuity mistake: When Fogg and friends are escaping from the art gallery we see them emerging from a manhole. Look in the background and you see the same couple pass twice going in the same direction each time.

Hollow Man (2000)

Deliberate mistake: Elizabeth Shue uses a drawer handle as an electromagnet. OK if it's really a magnetic material but lab furniture is generally made of aluminium or stainless steel which is not. There is no way that they would use an iron handle in a potentially wet, and hence corrosive, environment such as a freezer.

Blackadder (1986)

Plan E: General Hospital - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: After his interrogation, Darling is able to run out of the doctor's office (albeit hobbled by the chair he is tied to) despite having been shot in the foot and having been seen visibly limping earlier.

Constantine (2005)

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Constantine is on the floor with Gabriel on top of him. There is a shot from the side rotated by 90 degrees so they appear to be upright. There are several things on both Gabriel wrists which look like hospital ID tags. One of them on her left side has slipped down her wrist on to her hand. The shot switches to looking over Gabriel's shoulder and the tag is now back on her wrist and the writing has rotated. Switch back to a side shot and it's back to the original position.

Continuity mistake: When Jack Burton and the rest of the gang escape from the Wing Kong Trade Centre the first time, the guards fire at the left side of the bus breaking the windows and making holes in the bodywork. When we see the bus a few seconds later as it is driving away, it appears undamaged.

Dr. No (1962)

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Dr No attacks Bond up on the gantry we see two shots of the radioactivity meter where the red indicator is very close to maximum. The third time we see it just as they tumble off the gantry, it has moved much closer to the danger level.

A Life Less Ordinary mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Celine is tied up playing blackjack, the position of the rope holding her varies. We see for example that the number of times the rope crosses her chest goes from three to four and back again.

tw_stuart

Continuity mistake: When Robert finds Celine after she has been kidnapped by O'Reilly and Jackson we see several times that O'Reilly has bled from her left nostril and the blood has run down onto her bottom lip. After she gets shot, the blood stops at her top lip.

Continuity mistake: When Jackson is playing cards with Celine, the arrangement of Celine's cards changes depending on the camera angle without anyone touching them.

tw_stuart

Continuity mistake: When Jackson is tying the bag to the rope, his shadow is directly behind him but in the overhead shot his shadow sticks out to the right of him and then in the next shot, his shadow has remembered to be behind him again.

tw_stuart

Continuity mistake: When Robert makes his first attempt to collect the ransom, we see that when he first gets out of the car his shadow is pointing towards the 2 o'clock position (assuming he's facing 12 o'clock). But a few steps later when the shot changes, his shadow has moved to the 11 o'clock position.

tw_stuart

Continuity mistake: Observe the position of the material Robert uses to tie Celine and her hands. In the front shot both hands are resting flat on the arms of the chair but from above we see them hanging over the end. More obviously, when Robert secures her right arm, he ties her right wrist directly to the chair but for her left arm the material is tied over the sleeve of her coat. When the shot switches to overhead, we see the bonds on both arms are tied round the sleeves of her coat.

tw_stuart

Continuity mistake: When Robert is first attacked by the security guards he grabs a gun from them and warns them off. As they back away we see two baseball caps either side of him but when the shot changes to behind him there are three baseball caps directly behind him. Also, the distance between him and the nearest guard gets bigger.

tw_stuart

Continuity mistake: When Celine's father is lecturing her we see her bag parallel to the side of her chair but when we see an overhead shot of her, the bag is at a different angle.

tw_stuart

Continuity mistake: When Robert's boss comes in to fire him, the distance between them suddenly shrinks when the shot changes.

Friends (1994)

The One With The Baby Shower - S8-E20

Question: When Rachel's mother appears in this episode she looks (no disrespect intended) terrible compared to the last time we saw her. What happened to the actress playing this part?

Answer: After extensive research on the internet, I couldn't find any stories to explain this. It would not be unreasonable to say that Marlo Thomas had not appeared on the show for 6 years - last time we saw her she was 59, and in this episode she is 65. She is an ordinary woman who works hard, and simply looks older.

My Name is Joe (1998)

Continuity mistake: When Sarah comes in with the tea and biscuits for Joe and Shanks, the amount of ceiling that Shanks has painted changes between shots without enough time for him to have done it.

My Name is Joe (1998)

Continuity mistake: Joe comes in to the close and bangs on the first door on the left, we can see a railing just outside the close door. His football team comes jumping out the windows of the flat on the right and when they return, the railing that we saw before is gone.

Sliding Doors (1998)

Trivia: The scene with Helen and James on the boat where he describes losing his 8 yr old girlfriend to Gary Glitter has a certain unplanned tastelessness to it now since Mr Glitter was convicted of possessing child porn a few years later.

Sliding Doors (1998)

Continuity mistake: When Gerry reveals to Russell that Lydia may be pregnant there is a shot when he is leaning his right cheek on his clenched fist. When the shot changes, his jaw is cupped in his hand.

Sliding Doors (1998)

Continuity mistake: When Gerry spots Helen at the post rowing activities he peers through the window. We can see 3 glasses from his side, one half pint glass partly hidden by the window frame and 2 pint glasses visible through the pane beside the one he is looking through. The shot from inside only shows two pint glasses in different positions.
