G.I. Joe: The Movie picture

Continuity mistake: In the opening battle sequence, Cobra Commander takes a bomb and sets it for 3:00 minutes. As he flies with his jet pack to the Statue of Liberty, it counts down to 2:58.

This takes about 5 seconds to do, but the timer on the bomb stays at 2:58 for the full time of him landing, placing the bomb, and flying away.

Teen Wolf Too picture

Continuity mistake: After Todd Howard knocks out his opponent in the boxing match, the crowd immediately starts throwing cups of popcorn into the ring.

Then when the camera cuts back to a side view there is loads of rubbish and popcorn all over the place once again.
