Rambo: First Blood Part II picture

Continuity mistake: When Rambo fires the rocket launcher at the Russian Hind helicopter, he is clearly seen aiming a LAW rocket launcher. The LAW is fired by pressing a lever on the top. But when Rambo fires, a quick edit from a previous shot (on the patrol boat) shows him pulling a trigger from the Russian RPG launcher he used to dispatch the Vietnamese patrolboat earlier in the film. The film returns to show him holding the LAW rocket launcher again.

The Care Bears Movie picture

Continuity mistake: When the Care Bears boat begins to be pulled into the whirlpool, made by the evil spirit fish, one of the bears grabs a rope and sends a special star into the sky to help them, attached to the rope.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome picture

Continuity mistake: When Mad Max is sent on gulag on a horse, they place a jar of water on a stick tied to the horses head in order for the horse to keep walking "towards" it.

In a few shots later you see the jar again, but this time the ground around it is wet.

American Ninja picture

Continuity mistake: During the first 20 minutes of the movie, Patricia is wearing a pearl necklace. When she is shown sitting in the car, it is a double string of pearls. After she has crashed the car and climbs out, it is a single string of pearls. When she and Joe are running through the jungle, it is once again a double string, and when she returns home it is a single string again. This can not be explained by the necklace being a long string of pearls that's draped twice around her neck, as the necklace is always shown to reach just below her throat, and a longer string would reach further down.

Continuity mistake: When Cornelia leaves some food and a can of soda out for Joe, the label says "Coke." In the next shot, when Joe goes to get the meal, the label on the can now says," Coca-Cola."

Young Sherlock Holmes picture

Revealing mistake: There are several instances where you can see that the bandages used to wrap up the girls are pre-assembled. When the first girl is "waxed" you can see there are no joins between the bandages, they are all in one piece - almost like a body stocking. You can also see this later with Elizabeth, and it becomes more significant because you see the bandages being wrapped around her head as normal, and then when Watson pulls them off, they come away in one piece like a balaclava, which of course shouldn't happen.
