The Secret of my Success picture

Other mistake: When Michael J. Fox is in the pool with Auntie Vera, she pulls off his shorts, however you can clearly see the flesh-coloured pants he has on underneath.

The Running Man picture

Other mistake: This is in regards to a previous correction. A submitter pointed out that in the video footage of the helicopter incident shown to the crowd, the last shot of Arnie getting knocked out was seen from his perspective and as such could never have been filmed by any camera. The correction stated that Killian's men could simply have doctored the footage, probably as a way of showing what happens to criminals. But the problem is, the footage showing Arnie being knocked out is the undoctored one shown at the end of the film by the Rebels, which hasn't been tampered with by anyone.

Other mistake: The way 'Sara'/'Sarah' is spelled differs from the movie credits and the tag on the bottom of her roller skate shown near the end of the movie. (01:35:35 - 01:37:30)

The Princess Bride pictureThe Princess Bride mistake picture

Other mistake: When Westley and Buttercup are in the fire swamp and Buttercup is burned for the first time look carefully at the fire spurt, it's several feet away from Buttercup and is clearly too far away to have burned her.

Beverly Hills Cop II picture

Other mistake: When Bogomil gets shot two bullets are fired, one by the drive-by shooter and one by Karla, yet there are three distinct bullet holes and a forth large hole in the rear windshield of Bogomil's car. Two holes are completely unaccounted for. (None of the windshield holes are tree reflections.)

American Ninja 2: The Confrontation picture

Other mistake: When Joe (The American Ninja) pushes the girl out of the moving truck, one sees the stuntMAN (playing a girl) mis-time the fall and land on a large clump of rock and dirt, after which, before the scene cuts, we see the stuntman curl over in pain. Obviously a very painful fall for the stuntman and a very very funny scene for the viewers.

Stakeout picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Chris & Bill are about to bug Maria's phone, she is talking to her mom on the phone & Chris is on the telephone pole listening in. You can hear her talking but not her mom.

Fatal Attraction picture

Other mistake: After Dan visits his wife in the hospital, he goes to Alex's apartment. In the scene where he's chasing Alex and crashes into the glass door, shattering it, look closely at his face and you'll see it's not Michael Douglas but a stunt double. A few seconds later when they are struggling in the kitchen, look again and you'll see the same stunt double.

Other mistake: When Yogurt comes out of his statue the camera zooms in and the door starts to close, but when the camera zooms out the door starts back and closes again.

Anne of Avonlea picture

Other mistake: When Anne goes in for her second day of teaching and there's the illustration on the board, you see a view of the girls and an empty seat in front of Emiline. When the camera goes back, there is Jen Pringle sitting in it, and it happens again where Jen is sitting in the seat. A moment later, Jen walks into the classroom late and sits in the 'vacant' seat right in front of Emiline.

A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors picture

Other mistake: When Taryn turns into a punk and walks down the alley way, you can clearly see Freddy's back along the bottom of the camera shot as if he is trying to pass the camera for the next shot. This happens as Taryn looks down the alley. However, if that was meant to happen, wouldn't she have seen Freddy, and not have been so scared when he approached her from behind?

Born in East L.A. picture

Other mistake: At the shop where Cheech works, you can see him lip synching the redhead's lines as she says them.

The Living Daylights picture

Other mistake: When James is on the top of the jeep, there is a brief shot of it from behind as they go past an armed soldier. Watch carefully, the jeep goes over a few bumps and Bond on top seems to jump all over the place in a very unnatural way. This is because the footage has been sped up to make the Jeep appear to be going faster.

Overboard picture

Other mistake: During the opening of the mini golf course you see in one shot that the ball comes out of Lincoln's mouth. Ever notice that there is no where for the ball to go? No artificial putting green is there, just a wooden platform and natural grass.

Zombie Nightmare picture

Other mistake: The coroner examining the bodies in the tennis hall, he says that "lover-boy" is being "fished out of a swimming pool full of blood". But as he himself says later on, Pete was killed when his neck was snapped, there were no wounds he could bleed from. In addition, the zombie dropped him in a hot tub, not a swimming pool.

Masters of the Universe pictureMasters of the Universe mistake picture

Other mistake: When He-Man is fighting against the centurions on the floating disks, he tells the others to get inside a building. As he opens the door to the building, not only does it fall right off the hinges, but his sword also falls right off his back, pulling his cape off with it just as the scene ends. (01:09:20)

Superman IV: The Quest for Peace picture

Other mistake: In the rest of Superman movies, whenever he used his eyes to do some trick a beam came out. In this (really cheap) movie the beam is gone.

Other mistake: When Owen knocks the cup with soda out of his mother's hand, it hits the door, but no soda splashes on the door and the broken cup is dry.

The Untouchables picture

Other mistake: When Nitti (Billy Drago) kills Oscar in the elevator, not only is there not nearly enough time for him to write "Touchables" on the wall, but the writing looks like it was done with the aid of a ruler. If he had actually written it in the minute it took the elevator to reach the bottom floor, it would be smeared all over the place. (01:06:50)
