Cellular picture

Other mistake: The video quality on the phone would not be as good as the film makes out. In fact, as far as I know, no mobile phone has that quality. The fact that they would then be using the video he filmed off the camcorder as evidence just makes no sense, as you definitely wouldn't be able to see anything on the phone anyway.

Memento picture Memento mistake picture

Other mistake: At Natalie's house, when she is leaving and Lenny is taking a picture of her, the background looks totally different than from what is shown on the picture: the curtains are opened wider, the door is half open, there is a lamp on the left and there is no mirror on the wall. (00:17:10 - 01:20:50)

Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle picture

Other mistake: When the Angels are in the bar in Mongolia, and Alex is trying to get out of the trapdoor with Ray Carter, a guy falls over the trapdoor entrance. When Dylan tries to move him, and sits down on top of him, the trapdoor falls in. Wouldn't that crush Alex and Ray Carter? (00:04:55)

Jackie Brown picture

Other mistake: When De Niro and Bridget Fonda are talking and trading hits off of bong, alone in the apartment, while they're talking there comes a pause where they both look at each other with their mouths closed, and you can here someone coughing in the background.

Super Troopers picture

Other mistake: In the shot where Ramathorne is at the gun range, about to shoot Mac in the bullet proof cup, he is talking to Foster and Rabbit about how they are going to get in to the Spurbury Police Lockup. If you watch him draw his gun, he moves his other hand down to chamber a bullet, the sound effect is heard, but he never actually pulls the action back on the gun.

Batman and Robin picture Batman and Robin mistake picture

Other mistake: While fighting Mr. Freeze (and Bane) at the Gotham Observatory, Batman, Robin & Batgirl all have batsuits on, with silver bat (or robin) symbols on their chest. But while they are giving Alfred the cure to Stage 1 of McGregor's Syndrome, for some reason they have changed clothes before giving him the cure. Because now (other than the fact that they have all taken off their masks) Robin has on his original robin suit (with the red robin symbol across his chest) and Batgirl has on a gray t-shirt. (01:55:25 - 01:56:15)

Heat picture

Other mistake: After the post-bank robbery shootout, a TV reporter is heard describing the shootout as taking place in a "small southland neighborhood." But earlier one of the detectives was heard ordering road blocks at Flower and Figueroa, meaning the gun battle occurred in Downtown Los Angeles. Hardly a small neighborhood.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back picture

Other mistake: Major Turner tells Reacher that the men Parasource killed were shot twice in the back of the head. During Prudhomme's telling the images show the downed soldier on his back. The other is shown being shot and falling on her back. Then the two kill shots each. They couldn't have been in the back of their heads.

Gone in 60 Seconds picture

Other mistake: When Memphis and Kip are hiding from Johnny B and his crew in the cafe following the ambush, Memphis devises a plan to make good an escape. He sends Kip out to use the tow cable on the heavy tow rig to destroy Johnny B's Mercedes. First angle shows a cable wrapped around a rear A-arm of the vehicle and the hook connected to the cable, the next shows a hook directly attached to the front axle, which is the one that gets torn from the Mercedes when the tow rig pulls away. Additionally, a different cabling rig and loose cabling used in the stunt are strewn behind the car. So even if Kip somehow made 2 connections without being seen or heard, the rear rig is different than the one shown in the first shot. (00:51:00 - 00:53:00)

The Batman picture

Other mistake: When Batman is video calling the Riddler and passes the phone over to the D/A, you can see Batman's face still looking at the phone in the reflection of the Riddler's glasses.

Kindergarten Cop picture

Other mistake: The toy store manager has his assistant gift wrap an empty box. The race car set is still on the table fully assembled.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The manager brings the box to the counter and tells the assistant to gift wrap the box, but we don't actually see what happens in the store after Crisp leaves. There is no indication how much time has passed. It is plausible that the manager brought the box to the assistant and told them to gift wrap it, but that the assistant knows they will also have to disassemble the toy and put it in the box first. We don't ever see the car set still in the window after the customer leaves so we can't assume the assistant wrapped an empty box.

License to Drive picture

Other mistake: When Dean compliments Les on the great driving making up for a year of boredom, Les looks around up in the air in a direction away from the car, then suddenly says "there's a scratch on my car." He then looks down on the car at the scratch and shows Dean. He said the "scratch" line before actually seeing it.
