The Program picture

Continuity mistake: When Joe, the Heisman candidate quarterback, jumps his Harley off of a dirt cliff, one camera angle is from below as the bike is in the air. The angle clearly shows the bike is different from the Harley he started and finished with. Most noticeable is the fact that the tyres on the stunt bike are knobby enduro tyres, but later when the bike is stopped, you can see the smooth street tyres are back again.

Dreamer picture

Continuity mistake: Just before the Breeders Cup the horse is upset and Kurt Russell puts his hands on either side of her face to see what she is "thinking". First his fingers are practically in her eyeball and when the shot changes his hand is back by her jaw. This happens to quickly to be a natural movement.

BASEketball picture

Continuity mistake: In the locker room scene, Remer and Joe are both naked. When Remer goes to pull Squeak out the drawer, you see him put a robe on, but you also see him wearing underwear. It wouldn't be possible to put on underwear in about 1/2 a second.

The Color of Money picture

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the tournament, when we see all the platters break at the same time (wide shot showing all tables), we see Eddie's table is second from the left and three tables up. Notice the referee one table behind Eddie. In the close shot after the break, we now see that the referee, who was standing still in the wide shot, is now a table further down.

Strangers on a Train picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Guy enters Bruno's house to kill his father, Guy takes out a flashlight to look at Bruno's map. In one shot, you can only see the map, and the light is very small and circular, but in a wider shot of Guy's upper torso, the light covers most all of the map.

Bend It Like Beckham picture

Continuity mistake: About 35-40 minutes into the film, Jules and Jess are at the bus stop. Pinky's future in-laws drive by in the Jaguar with nothing in front of them. When the camera shot moves back as they enter the bend, another car has appeared in front of them.

Eddie picture

Continuity mistake: In one scene, in the middle of the movie, one of the older players is sitting in a chair near the basketball court, and he is wearing sweat pants, white ones I believe. He is then asked to come in to play by Eddie (Whoopi Goldberg). He then stands up. But in the next scene he is walking up to the other players on the basketball court taking off a light jacket, but no sweat pants.

Continuity mistake: When Michelle gives her pep talk to Coach Fields, the house they're in is the house they moved from at the beginning of the movie.

Rocky picture

Continuity mistake: When a particularly unfit Rocky runs up the steps at dawn, when he reaches the top and we go to a different shot, it's a lot lighter. When returning to the previous angle, it gets darker again.

Pride picture

Continuity mistake: Right after they decide to become a team, Jim is walking to Hakeem's home and you see a little boy in a green shirt in three different places during the walk. The little boy is seen playing pattycake with a little girl on a car, then you see him running down the street and in the very next frame you see him kneeling at a flower bed.

Lucky You picture

Continuity mistake: Drew Barrymore's hair varies from shot to shot, as well as within scenes. It's always styled a bit differently, as if she did not have the same hairstylist more than once.

Everybody's All American picture

Continuity mistake: When Lawrence and Cake are in the bar talking about the arrest of Blue, the beer in front of Cake goes from full with a full head, to half empty, to full without a head, to full with a head.

He Got Game picture

Continuity mistake: As mentioned in a previous error, just before Jake is checked into the Surf Hotel, there is a long scrolling shot that illustrates the surroundings of Jake's room in the hotel. In particular, notice that Nathan's Seafood and Clam Bar is not across the street from Kennedy Fried Chicken. This is contradicted later when a) Jake looks out of his window and sees the Nathan's sign, and b) Jake is seen leaning out of his window above the Kennedy sign.
