Girls Just Want To Have Fun picture

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when Parker and Hunt are on the bus going to the contest, you'll see that Parker's hair is in waves. But when she arrives at the studio, her hair is VERY curly. Its not likely that she had time to change her hairstyle THAT drastically if she was pressed for time as she very clearly was.

Witness picture

Continuity mistake: When Harrison Ford confronts (and beats up) the tourists, there are a number of close-up shots of the people in the first wagon, including one where Viggo Mortensen leans forward and tells the driver to do nothing, even though he is being provoked. In all these close ups, Mortensen is bare-headed. When the shot changes to Ford's perspective, from the cart behind, we see one of the tourists grab a straw hat from Mortensen's head. The hat has appeared out of nowhere in a split second. There is a child with a straw hat behind Mortensen, but the hat stays on his head in both shots.

Ladyhawke picture

Continuity mistake: After Philippe the Mouse escapes from the prison and has swam out the underwater grate hole, another scene shows soldiers riding through the peasants leaving the castle to search for him. In the background, two soldiers can be seen sitting by the moat, eating. One stands and grabs suddenly around his belt, obviously looking around for something. A while after this in a separate scene, Philippe the Mouse is shown surfacing in the moat behind these two soldiers and grabbing the knife from beside one of them and slicing away a cord on the soldiers belt and stealing his coin purse, then swimming away quietly and saying the line about 'I know I promised not to steal Lord, but I know, that you know, what a weak-willed person I am...' Obviously the scene with the soldier standing suddenly and discovering his missing coin purse should have come after the actual 'stealing of the purse' scene.
