Mistakes in current releases

Overboard picture

Continuity mistake: Leonardo is dangling from the railing of his yacht as the yacht travels at a high speed. In the next scene, looking out from a room with a large window, Leonardo can be seen still clinging to the railing but the yacht now appears to be motionless.

Best mistakes of all time

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York picture

Continuity mistake: In the first film, it is mentioned several times that Kevin is 8 years old. However, in this film it is stated that he is 10. When his parents are in the Miami airport security office, they say that he was left alone last Christmas. That would make him 9. Both films take place the same days, from about three days before Christmas until Christmas morning, so even if Kevin is born around Christmas time this is still a mistake.

New this month Correction: So how exactly is this a mistake? The round was jammed, Phil cleared the stuck round. No mistake.

The Good Dinosaur picture

Continuity mistake: Spot finds four other humanlike creatures and goes to them. Arlo is standing several feet in front of them. He begins to push some dirt by using his nose. A close-up then shows him using his nose to draw a circle around the five others but he is standing much too far away to be able to do this.

Best Disney mistakes

The Emperor's New Groove picture

Continuity mistake: When Kronk is disposing of the llama body, he runs down a very tall staircase. At the bottom, he runs into two peasants and leans up against the wall. The peasants pass him, walking toward the left side of the screen. Immediately after they disappear from the screen, the "camera" zooms out so you can see the entire palace. Now, the only place the peasants could have gone was up the staircase Kronk had just come down from, unless they wanted to fall off a cliff. If you look on the stairs, though, no one is there. The peasants couldn't have made it all the way up the extremely tall and steep staircase within seconds, so they just mysteriously disappeared.

Best Star Wars mistakes

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back picture

Revealing mistake: When Captain Needa is killed by Darth Vader because they lost track of the Millennium Falcon, in the background, two guards come to take him away. You can clearly see the dead captain get up almost by himself. (01:10:50)
