Fat Albert picture

Deliberate mistake: Old Weird Harold's pants fall down twice in the film. His boxers are different colors each time; once they're red, the other time they're blue. The director admits to this deliberate mistake in the commentary, siting his interest in seeing if people will notice.

Around the World in 80 Days picture

Deliberate mistake: When Prince Hapi says that Monique should be his seventh wife, she says "you have seven wives?" and he confirms. Actually if she is supposed to be his seventh wife he only has got six wives by now.

Ratatouille picture

Deliberate mistake: Main headlines in newspapers appear translated for each country for the kids to understand it, but the rest of the news appear in English, despite the movie taking place in Paris. Also, most signs -such as the poisons in the window shop- have labels written in English.

Smokey and the Bandit II picture

Deliberate mistake: In a couple of scenes, Bandit's Trans Am's engine sounds are dubbed, and you can hear the shifting of a manual transmission when his car was an automatic.

The Emperor's New Groove picture

Deliberate mistake: The balloon llama the chipmunk makes has legs which are completely detached. The pairs of legs should be twisted together. Without this, it looks like the balloon has 6 different ends.

Spy Kids pictureSpy Kids mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: After Carmen rescues Juni on the boat/sub, he accidentally re-engages the autopilot and they submerge. In the next shot as two Thumb Thumbs jump off their speedboat, the name, 'Donzi', that is written across the side of the boat, is backwards. This shot is flipped. (00:24:10)

Crocodile Dundee picture

Deliberate mistake: This film contains the most stupid scene ever filmed. Linda Koslowski dips her canteen in a creek and a full grown crocodile grabs it and tries to drag her into the water - and she holds it off in a tug of war until our hero Mick arrives and kills it. Nonsense. A slightly built woman has a much chance of holding her own against a 1200kg croc as I have of flying to the moon. She'd be croc food before he even heard the splash - a croc that big could take a 1000kg buffalo without pausing for breath, never mind a small woman.

Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star picture

Deliberate mistake: When the neighbourhood kids are teaching Dickie to ride a bike, whenever he hits something his brown hair dye, that he applied a few scenes back, is missing from his hair (obviously a stunt double is in place for David Spade).

Must Love Dogs picture

Deliberate mistake: With John Cusack leaning to the side to pull Diane Lane and the dog from the water, the rowing scull should have nearly tipped over, yet it leans only slightly. Later in the same scene, the normal instability of such boats can be seen when tipping occurs to a greater degree simply from the dog moving.

Exit Wounds picture

Deliberate mistake: When Boyd has saved the Vice President's life after chucking him into the water, Boyd looks down at the VP who is being dragged out. Suddenly, there is a picture taken that appears in papers, but there was no press or person on the bridge where Boyd is with a camera, so where did the photograph come from? (00:06:55)

Casanova picture

Deliberate mistake: The tiny hot air balloon that Francesca released in the debate room would never be able to support Casanova's weight.

Good Luck Chuck picture

Deliberate mistake: In Antarctica when Charlie and Cam kiss, their tongues become froze together but this is impossible as it would take a freezing object for this to work.

John Tucker Must Die picture

Deliberate mistake: When Carrie is hiding in the locker room to record John talking with his friends, it's clear that her camera is behind the vent, and the openings in the vent are closer together then the diameter of her camera lens, however we don't see the vent slats in the camera view or the replaying of the video footage in a later scene. Not to mention the fact that she isn't holding the camera steady. This is impossible.

Dr. Dolittle picture

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Maya is looking for Rodney at the party and he scampers off into the bathroom, he miraculously climbs on top of a toilet in a matter of seconds (which isn't actually shown). There is no way a guinea pig could do this.
