Best music movie mistakes of all time

Coyote Ugly picture

Continuity mistake: When the real 'manager' comes outside to yell at "Mr. O'Donnell', you see the manager walk back into the club. If you look in the background of the next shot, you can see the manager walking through the door again.

Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny picture

Continuity mistake: When JB dreams about singing "Master Exploder" in the small bar, he points at one guy in the audience and literally blows his mind. When he starts pointing you can not only see JB's face, but also how his elbow is in a slight angle. In the next shot the camera shows the guy JB is pointing at and his elbow is completely stretched. The views change several times and the angle of his elbow changes after every cut, until the guy's brain is finally blown out.

Almost Famous picture

Continuity mistake: Toward the end where the guitarist comes to talk to the kid at his house. He turns the chair around to sit in it backwards, but throws the shirt down onto the ground. When he sits down the shirt is back on the chair.

Be Cool picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Vince Vaughn is complaining to Harvey Keitel in Harvey's office about the hitman he hates his gold necklace is either tucked into his shirt and red tracksuit or hanging out. This alternates throughout shots but during the same conversation.

Selena picture

Audio problem: When Chris drives up in the truck while Selena is mowing the lawn, Selena asks what he got. While you hear "junk food" his mouth says something else.

Save the Last Dance picture

Factual error: During the movie's opening credits, Sara is shown auditioning for Juilliard, which is misspelled as "Julliard" on a sign outside the room where the audition is occurring.

Music and Lyrics picture
Music and Lyrics mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Sophie and Alex are in the cafe the camera shows Alex from behind Sophie, and Sophie picks up a drink in the very next shot she has put it down. This happens throughout the scene in the cafe with her hands.

A Demon
Swing picture

Continuity mistake: During the first scene set in a prison cell, as Martin Luxford (played by Hugo Speer) is about to be released, there is a glitter ball made from an orange covered in tin foil. It is rotating first one way and then the other, as it has been spun by hand. As the film action cuts between the two characters, the ball mysteriously changes direction without having slowed down and at one point appears stopped, having previously been rotating rather fast.

The Wedding Singer picture

Continuity mistake: When Robbie and Julia are making their friend the limo driver run through the obstacle course to prove his driving ability, you can clearly see both right-side hubcaps come off the car. Then, just a few seconds later, the hubcaps are back on the limo.

Dirty Dancing picture

Continuity mistake: In the last dance scene, Patrick Swayze jumps down from the stage and starts dancing. He goes down on his knees and when he lifts one knee, it is extremely dusty, however when he stands up his knees are completely clean.

Purple Rain picture

Continuity mistake: Apollonia jumps into the lake. She is soaking wet, naturally. However, soon after, she's riding on the back of Prince's motorcycle and her hair is completely dry.

Spice World picture

Continuity mistake: When they are running the obstacle course, the amount of hoops in front of the girls changes from five, to two, to five again.

Girls Just Want To Have Fun picture

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when Parker and Hunt are on the bus going to the contest, you'll see that Parker's hair is in waves. But when she arrives at the studio, her hair is VERY curly. Its not likely that she had time to change her hairstyle THAT drastically if she was pressed for time as she very clearly was.

Step Up 2: The Streets picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie in the scene where Moose and Sophie kiss, Moose's hat keeps changing forward to backward from shot to shot.

Center Stage picture

Continuity mistake: In one scene when Cooper is choreographing the dance, his shirt is sweat-free. The next time you see him there's a big sweat stain on his shirt.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? picture

Factual error: The beer bottle behind John Goodman in the picnic scene is a modern day Budweiser bottle.

Quadrophenia picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the final scene before Phil Daniels rides the scooter off the cliff you can see a shadow of the helicopter filming the scene.

Josie and the Pussycats picture

Continuity mistake: When the 3 girls drive up to Val, Mel and Josie at the bowling alley after the Pussycats gig, one of them puts a Coke can on the top of the car and you can clearly see there's no picture on it. In the next shot, you can see a picture of one of the guys from DuJour on it.

Eddie and the Cruisers picture

Continuity mistake: Eddie drives a 1957 Chevy convertible off the bridge. A scene showing the car being fished out of the water clearly has an older vehicle dangling from the line.

The Lizzie McGuire Movie picture

Audio problem: When Lizzie is performing at the end of the movie at the awards show, at the part where we see her from the back facing the blue light, her voice sounds like it's changing. It seems like it's someone much older singing, or the synthesizer went wrong. It just obviously isn't Lizzie's voice anymore.

Pitch Perfect picture

Character mistake: When Aubrey is telling the Bellas that they will practice two hours a day, seven days a week, the board behind her states that on Sundays they have the day off.

American Dreamz picture

Plot hole: Cutting plastic explosive and disguising it as chewing gum will not hide the smell from bomb sniffing dogs.

Mark Poliner
Hard Day's Night picture

Continuity mistake: There is a scene in the movie where the Beatles enter a limousine, I believe at the beginning of the movie. In this particular scene the Beatles are all dressed in suits and ties, but when the Beatles are filmed in the limo, John Lennon is wearing a turtle neck sweater beneath a blazer.

Soul Plane picture

Continuity mistake: The entire plane is on a slant after the front wheel gets stolen in Central Park. Yet when the passengers are having the party upstairs in the next scene, the whole place is perfectly level.

Migster
Detroit Rock City picture

Factual error: In the scene where Mystery is playing "Rock & Roll All Nite" in the basement, Hawk is playing an Epiphone Special II guitar. The movie is set in 1978, and this guitar did not hit the market until 1996.

School of Rock picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dewey and Ms. Mullins are in the bar, the shots from behind Ms. Mullins sitting down show that her left hand is on the table. However, the shots showing the front of Ms. Mullins show her arms folded.

Davidian
You Got Served picture

Continuity mistake: When Rico runs to the basketball court to spill about the Big Bounce, he begins to sit down on the court. After it cuts Rico starts to sit down again for the second time.

What's Love Got To Do With It? picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Tina Turner is running away from Ike she has to cross a freeway. If you look closely you will see that she has on high heels then she has on sneakers as she is running across the freeway.

8 Mile picture

Continuity mistake: When Rabbit and his mom's boyfriend were kicking each other's ass inside the Smith's trailer, Rabbit pushes or punches the boyfriend from the kitchen to the living room, breaking a small wooden post in a quick shot. A few shots later, when Rabbit returns to the trailer, the wooden post is intact. There was no time to fix it.

Velvet Goldmine picture

Factual error: Near the beginning of the film, a scene opens with the subtitle 'New York'. Strange, these New Yorkers drive on the left.
