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. He lands and places the bomb, and laser blasts hit all around him before he turns and flies off. 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. (00:01:35)

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. The camera cuts to Todd cheering and then an overview shot of his opponent laying face down on the canvas. At that view you can see that there is no rubbish or popcorn or anything else in 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.
