Factual error: In the opening short "Pikachu's Rescue Adventure" in the Bellossom song and dance scene a Poliwhirl calls itself a Poliwrath. This is obviously a mistake because of the body differences between the Pokemon.

Continuity mistake: During the other father's song, notice the red record player by the door and the position it's in, with the lid facing Coraline when he says, "making up a song".

Pokemon: Mewtwo's Return picture

Plot hole: There's no visible evidence that Team Rocket has taken away Ash, Misty, and Brock's Poké Balls when the gang was in the cage, so why don't the Trainers call out their Pokémon (Brock's Onix would've helped out very much) and escape the cage?

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown picture

Continuity mistake: In the first 'Ice Age' Diego isn't afraid of water (in the beginning he chases the woman and the baby through the river before she jumps off the waterfall and never shows any fear) but in this one he suddenly is. It's not like that he is just afraid of swimming because in the second movie he shows fear anytime when he touches water.

The Secret Life of Pets picture

Other mistake: Duke is running through the city while dragging Max by his leash. A close-up shows Max being pulled between the bars of a metal fence, but the gap is much too small for Duke to have passed through.
