The Karate Kid Part II picture

Other mistake: When Chozen is buying vegetables from the villagers, one of the weights from the scale is knocked onto the ground. Daniel picks it up and realises that its not a real weight and breaks it in half. If Chozen wanted to cheat the villagers when he weighed their vegetables, he would need weights that were heavier than normal, not lighter plastic ones. Lighter weights would mean that Chozen would need to add far more of the light weights to make any amount of vegetables balance out, therefore he would be paying more for the vegetables than they are worth.

Children of a Lesser God picture

Plot hole: Sarah breaks a mirror in frustration by throwing something against it. Then she buries her face in her arms and sobs. It remains a mystery how she managed to cut her hand so bad that it needed to be fixed with five stitches, as she isn't even seen picking up the pieces.

Quicksilver picture

Continuity mistake: During Kevin Bacon's race with fellow messenger, the scenes shift back and forth from New York to San Francisco. In one city, he's on a fixed gear (no freewheel on back wheel) and when the race is taking place in the other city, he's riding a single-speed. Basically, the cityscape and bicycles switch from scene to scene.

Peggy Sue Got Married picture

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene the camera pulls back from a bedside locker to an over the shoulder shot of Kathleen Turner's character doing her make up in the mirror.
