Plaza Suite (1971)

Continuity mistake: Roy climbs out the window and walks along the edge, to try to get his daughter out of the bathroom. It starts to rain so his wife puts her head out the window to try and see her husband and gets soaked from the rain. Her was wet, her "hat" was wet and floppy, but after a few minutes, there is no trace of the rain; she is completely dry. And then, suddenly, she's wet again, right to the end.

Poltergeist (1982)

Stupidity: The family ask 3 so-called ghost experts into the house. After seeing flying objects in the kids' room, they are suitably impressed. But later on, the female expert is sleeping, one of the men is in the kitchen wanting to cook a steak, and the second man has his back to the monitors, his head buried in a crossword puzzle and he has headphones on with music on, so he can't see, hear or see what is going on.

Salt (2010)

Stupidity: When Salt is handcuffed, there is a long chain between the handcuffs. Why would they let a trained killer wear those handcuffs?

Salt (2010)

Continuity mistake: When Salt is arrested by the police, she is covered in a white powder. But, later, there is hardly any white powder to be seen.

Salt (2010)

Other mistake: When Salt is arrested and in the back seat of a police car, somehow she takes control and causes a lot of smashed up cars, and hits about ten large yellow bins. The problem is: Those bins are there because they have water in them, to lessen the impact of crashes, but there was no water to be seen.

Outbreak (1995)

Stupidity: The 4th/5th person to be infected is a technician who stupidly puts his hand into a just-turned-off centrifuge without looking.

Drowning Mona (2000)

Other mistake: At the beginning, the police say, "Mona Deary is dead." But how do they know that? The car isn't hers, it's her son's, and it's in the water. It's only when the car has been dragged out of the water that they can see the true picture.

Silent Witness (1996)

Show generally

Plot hole: When Nicky goes into prison in Mexico to give a criminal a shot of insulin, two errors are seen. 1) The needle and syringe are far too big for an insulin shot, which takes a one ml syringe and a small sub-cutaneous needle. 2) When we first see the syringe, there is a small amount of insulin in it, but it grows the more times we see it, until a large syringe is two-thirds full - insulin is enough in a one ml syringe.

Dragonfly (2002)

Factual error: A young boy is brought into a paediatric emergency room, where after trying measures to save him fail and he dies - he has no heartbeat. So they use a defibrillator on him, but that's the problem: You can not use the defibrillator on someone with no heart beat, who has flatlined. The heart is an electric pump; with no spark, there is nothing to jump.

The Book Thief

Other mistake: Page 35 - near the end of the darkened words, it reads, "it involved bashing her with wooden spoon..." It should read, "it involved bashing her with a wooden spoon..."

The Women (2008)

The Women (2008)

Continuity mistake: When Sylvie talks to Molly on a bench in a park, Sylvie's hair keeps changing - behind her ear, in front of her ear, etc.

Capturing Mary (2007)

Trivia: In the opening scene, we see a long row of women's shoes. All the shoes have matching pairs, except two, near the beginning, which are very different.

Skyfall (2012)

Question: When Bond finally emerges from hanging onto the underside of the elevator that the villain was in, how does Bond know which way the villain went, right or left; I mean the elevator would have blocked the light?

Answer: It's not really clear - Bond saw the shadow of him stepping out but not which way he went. I suspect Bond just took a 50/50 chance that he went right, and guessed correctly.

Skyfall (2012)

Question: Moneypenny is ordered to shoot Bond, to get to the man Bond is fighting on the train, so why does Bond, later, in MI6, dig the fragments of the bullet out of his shoulder and ask them to be analysed, which does reveal that the bullet is very odd?

Answer: The bullet fragments are not from Moneypenny's shot - earlier on Bond is shot in the shoulder by the assassin Patrice when he is in the cabin of the excavator.

The Transporter (2002)

Question: Frank is fighting a lot of bad men in oil, so everything is slippery. My question is: What are the things Frank puts on the front of his feet, to fight the slippery oil, they are like half-rollerskates?

Answer: You notice that Frank removes those items from a bicycle frame. Those are stirrup-style rat trap bicycle pedals. They have serrated metallic edges which supposedly give Frank traction on the concrete floor, despite the oily mess.

Stargate (1994)

Trivia: The producers, the casting agents, really wanted Jaye Davidson, from "The Crying Game", to play the head bad guy, but Jaye said, "No more movies", so they kept upping the money they would pay him - this is before actors nowadays get phenomenal money - and it was only when they got to a million dollars that he said yes.

Ladyhawke (1985)

Other mistake: After Phillipe escapes from the dungeons of Aquila, the head of the guards demands 10 men to go with him, to recapture Phillipe. But as they leave, we can see only 6 men accompany him.

Plot hole: When Bond leaves the hotel room in Venice, getting supplies, how does he manage to conceal his gun with its long silencer?

Casino Royale (2006)

Other mistake: The password for the money has 5 letters, but later Vesper puts in 6 letters; her name Vesper, the password, has 6 letters.

Tom: What is the Maltese Falcon made of, to make it so special?
Spade: The stuff that dreams are made of.

Suicide Squad (2016)

Visible crew/equipment: When we see Floyd's past, he is on top of a building, lining up to assassinate someone and negotiating his fee on the phone. On the left middle, under a blanket, or something, there is another person on that roof when there shouldn't be.

Question: I don't understand the beginning; why does everyone suddenly hate Superman, and what is that alien-looking thing in the sky that is knocking the buildings down and killing the people inside, and do they think Superman is doing that?

Answer: The beginning is Bruce Wayne's perspective of the events that occurred in the movie "Man of Steel" when Superman and General Zod are fighting (if you haven't seen it, it would explain a lot of BvS events). It's General Zod's ship and the phantom drive. It cuts to 18 months later. Supermen is called to testify in front of a congressional hearing because of his vigilantism over the past 18 months and people are concerned about his actions (like the events in Africa) since he's an all-powerful alien with no way for the people to stop him, so they're very nervous. Bruce seems to blame Superman more than anyone though for the destruction and death of people he knew (and tried to save) because if Superman wasn't on Earth, Zod wouldn't have come to Earth, etc.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Bruce Wayne drives his car towards all the chaos, but the crowd is too thick for him and his car to get through, but with movie magic suddenly Bruce and his car are at the front of the crowd.

kh1616

Question: How did Lex Luther find Superman's lair? I thought his lair was in the fortress of solitude in the Arctic Circle.

Answer: Lex Luthor didn't find Superman's lair. Rather, he entered a crashed Kryptonian vessel that still had a functional computer database. Luthor used Zod's amputated fingertips to activate the database, which told him how to make the hybrid-clone monster, Doomsday.

Character mistake: When Greg and Rose are playing backgammon, Rose counts the middle of the board as a place to count when moving a piece, but the middle of the board isn't a place to count.

kh1616

Stupidity: Lecter fires the first bullet to alert the police that something is up, and the lift goes up, then comes down. Now in all this, only 6 or 7 go up the floor where Lecter was. Why aren't police sent in groups to investigate every floor? Lecter could have been anywhere, instead there are about 30 police huddled on the lobby floor.

kh1616

Continuity mistake: Lecter asks for a lamb chop dinner, rare, and when they arrive, they are rare. When we see them later, they look well done.

Inception (2010)

Continuity mistake: As they are sitting around, planning the next job, Cobb is wearing a blue shirt, of which he rolls up the right sleeve repeatedly.

Inception (2010)

Question: When the team is twice under, I think, the bus, with all of them on it - the reality - is heading for water, it has been hit. But what I don't understand is how Cobb says, "When the van hits the water," how would he know this? He's dreaming, as they all are.

Answer: When the van hits the water it will suddenly stop, giving a kick to the passengers. Cobb knew because driving the van off the bridge was always the plan.
