Superman II picture

Other mistake: When Clark and Lois are on their way to the diner, the wide shot of their car driving along looked very familiar. In fact, it was footage used in the first movie, where the car was used as part of Lex Luthor's "real-estate" plan and was run on remote control. If you look closely in part II, no one is driving the car yet you hear Clark say to Lois, "Hey, you seem pretty quiet over there...."

Urban Cowboy picture

Other mistake: When Bud is hit by the mechanical bull, he jumps up shouting "You broke my godd**n arm.", and this is a point thought the next 45 minutes or so. The cast he is seen wearing however is only given for a broken thumb, not a broken arm, which is where he was hit.

The Shining picture

Other mistake: When Jack Nicholson is talking to the manager of the Overlook Hotel, the manager mentions the death of two girls aged 8 and 10. When Danny sees visions of the two girls they are unmistakably twins, not different ages. A quick look at the IMDb (http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0081505/fullcredits) proves they are - Lisa and Louise Burns, both born in 1968.

Animalympics picture

Other mistake: When Kit Mambo prepares to catch up with Renè Fromage, she first overtakes two guys (the raccoon and the bighorn sheep) on 'third and fourth positions' - as announced by Barbara Warbler, then she passes the sheep and the camel before she catches up with Renè. This would place her first competitors on positions five and four, instead of three and four.

Other mistake: For the first clue, the telescope readings are 38-22-23/56-10-11. When Marvin enters them, he mutters the numbers 22-23-68-22. (00:20:30 - 00:32:00)

Private Benjamin picture

Other mistake: At the end of basic training, Judy's platoon goes to the bulletin board to see what their M.O.S. will be. This is not how the U.S. Army operates, you must pass a qualification test for the M.O.S. that you enlist for before you ever enlist. You know before you ever get to basic training what M.O.S. you will be training for, not on the last day of basic training.

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, Dave Speed jumps onto Torpedo's private plane and starts steering it to the ground. The plane is white with obvious red stripes. However, Dave Speed is supposed to lose his super powers when he sees red.

Yet, when Richard decides to give Arthur his ball back, he reaches over the counter to the exact place Arthur's father placed it even though Richard never saw where it was placed. (00:54:30 - 00:57:10)

Popeye picture

Other mistake: As the people are going up the ramp to the Oyl's party, the man in the brown stops by the piling with a paper. As he bends over, there is a sound of the pelican pooping, and the man reacting to poop on his paper. The man and his paper are on one side of the piling, and the bird's tail is on the other. Couldn't have pooped on the paper unless he threw it.

Smokey and the Bandit II picture

Other mistake: When Justices car gets crushed as is almost triangular shaped, and driving down the road, it shows a shot of Justice cleaning off some dirt from the dashboard. If you look at the hood/bonnet where all the crease marks are from the crash, you can see quite a bit of rust where the paint has flaked off. Considering the damage is only supposed to have just happened, there should be clean metal not rust.
