Best comedy movie mistakes of 1981
Factual error: When the Titanic sinks all six dwarves and Kevin end up in the sea clutching a lifebelt. The water in which the Titanic sank was freezing - that is how most of the casualties died, by freezing, not drowning. In water like that you'd be lucky to stay conscious for more than a few minutes. Despite this none of them show the slightest effect of the cold. Maybe the dwarves have some 'magical' ability to withstand lethal cold, but Kevin doesn't even react to being plunged into freezing cold water. He'd be screaming in pain, but he doesn't even show the slightest sign of discomfort.
Continuity mistake: About 20 minutes into the movie, the family is sitting around the dining room table eating breakfast. Dad asks how school is going, and the daughter replies, "I learned all about my cervix in sex ed today", then walks off. They are eating breakfast, and the kids have not yet gone to school.
Continuity mistake: In Jacks first appearance to David in the hospital room, Jack uncovers the food on the tray and takes a piece of toast from another plate on the tray. The silver cover on the tray changes position throughout the scene in various shots. Sometimes the cover is resting partly on the tray and sometimes flat on the tray table surface.

Revealing mistake: 'Nightwind', the film at the centre of the drama, has finished shooting, and has been edited and postproduced, has premiered and bombed. All of this would take months - for a major production, up to a year. So why are the sets still standing on the studio sound stages?
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the robots run out of battery, the female robot stretches out her right arm and shuts down in that position. The male robot walks up and stretches out his right arm and shuts down holding hands. In between shots of holding right hands, you see them holding left hands. First right hands, then left hands, then right hands again.
