Gone in 60 Seconds picture

Continuity mistake: When Hadrian jumps the mustang over the upturned car, the film slows down to show the jump in slow motion. When the car lands, it hits so hard the car spins around and ends up facing the cars it jumped. The scene is then repeated at normal speed, but just as the car would be shown spinning out, a shot of the car driving away from the accident is shown.

Continuity mistake: In the office tower after the quake there is a panic and workers rush down the stairs only to find them fallen away. After two women fall to their death a man is left hanging on a girder, but falls onto a giant piece of glass. Look at the top of the frame and you will see the airbag shooting our from under it.

Foxy Brown picture

Continuity mistake: There are a number of scenes (stable house, car, hotel) showing Claudia wearing a green harness dress. It is quite obvious that she is not wearing a brassiere in all of those scenes. In the hotel room, where Foxy and Claudia meet the judges, Claudia removes the green dress and is now wearing a bra. It would be highly unlikely that she would be putting one on, at the same time she is getting undressed. This was obviously done to cut down on nudity in the film.

Airport 1975 picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film and in the shot of the 747 as it turns to change course to Salt Lake City the company's name "Columbia" is printed on the aircraft's side on top of a large, white rectangle. After the aircraft comes to a stop on the tarmac the white rectangle is gone and the name is painted directly on its metallic fuselage.

William Bergquist
The Four Musketeers picture

Continuity mistake: During the battle at the convent, one of the Cardinal's guards takes aim with his matchlock musket, is shot by Portos, and falls - along with his gun - into a hay wagon. But if you watch the falling scene closely, it is evident that only the man ends up in the hay; the gun should have fallen some place to the left of the wagon.

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Thunderbolt and Lightfoot are in the car with the crazy driver. The car goes over the embankment and as it flips you can see a wheel break off. A short time later they both drive off in the same car, with the wheel attached again.
