Wallace & Gromit: Cracking Contraptions picture

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'The 525 CrackerVac' the vacuum cleaner malfunctions (as usual) and Gromit challenges the device like in a duel. The scenery changes to orange like in a sunset and Gromit stands with his back towards the window. On the window sill you can see a cactus. Wallace is in the room near the door. The vacuum cleaner explodes and covers Wallace in ashes/dust. Wallace suddenly has the cactus on his head (also covered in ashes) and judging by the fact that there is a clean area behind Wallace on the wallpaper in the shape of Wallace with a cactus on his head he must have had the cactus on his head before the explosion, but we know he hadn't as the cactus was standing behind Gromit and Gromit stays clean after the explosion, so the cactus couldn't have moved. How did the cactus end up on Wallace's head?

Megamind picture

Continuity mistake: While Megamind is in the Metroman Museum, he uses his dehydrator gun and turns Bernard into a little blue cube. He puts the cube in his pocket, then picks up Bernard's cellphone and glasses. At the end of the movie, inserted into the credits is a short scene where Minion is doing laundry. As he approaches the washing machine, Bernard pops out of it, having been rehydrated in the wash - with his glasses perched askew on his head. (00:30:05 - 01:28:20)

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! picture

Continuity mistake: At the end when the sled full of Christmas stuff is on the mountaintop, it starts sliding off the edge. It's going fast enough that it should be long gone by the time the Grinch reaches it, but when he does it's still right near the top of the mountain.

The Prince of Egypt picture

Factual error: During the plague when the fire and rocks are falling from the sky, they fall behind a statue of Rameses and are seen through its hollow eye holes. It makes for a great image, but that would mean that the statue's eyes were punched out like a mask, even though before they were just carved into the stone.

Continuity mistake: When Baby Secret Bear and Baby Tenderheart jump on the rainbow to leave the cloud boat, you can see their "tummy symbols", which they have not yet received. The symbols disappear as they are sliding, then when they reach the bottom of the rainbow, the symbols are given to them for the first time. (00:06:35)
