Willow picture

Revealing mistake: When they are at the Nutmar camp in the mountains, Val Kilmer tells Willow "Get on that shield!" but when they go over a 6, 7, 8 foot drop when they are sledding down the snow, you can clearly see runners on the shield.

Space Mutiny picture

Continuity mistake: While this movie is so bad and full of mistakes, its barely worth finding them all, one stands out in the history of movie mistakes. One of the officers on board the ship, Lt. Lamont, is killed by the villain. A few scenes later she shows up on the bridge as an extra.

Grumpy Scot
Man from Snowy River 2 picture

Revealing mistake: After Jim's horse is shot from under him while running down the really steep hill, and Jim later regains consciousness, before he turns and finds his horse dead, if you watch closely you can see the horse still breathing.

The Rescue picture

Continuity mistake: There is a scene where the kids are being chased in a speedboat, while mortars are being launched at them from behind. One shot is of the young boy looking at an incoming mortar over his right shoulder, yelling "Look Out!", and then seeing the mortar hit on the left side of the boat.

Midnight Run picture

Continuity mistake: When Jack and the Duke are in the restaurant car of the first train, Jack is eating a chicken leg in one shot. In the middle of a sentence he changes to eating jelly and ice cream, which he finishes. In the very next shot his bowl is full of jelly and ice cream again.

Rambo III picture

Factual error: The soviet military equipment isn't all that Soviet ... e.g. the helicopter is supposed to be a "Mil-Mi 24 Hind" (Pilot and system operator sitting behind each other), in fact it's just a French "aerospatiale puma" with additional mock turrets and so on (crew sits side by side).

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene after the storm, the ship moves in the sand. Look at its front and you'll be able to see a wire that moves the ship. It's very visible.

Vibes (1988)

Vibes picture

Factual error: At the end, when Cyndi Lauper touches the glowing pyramid, goes into a trance, and starts translating the inscription, Jeff Goldblum pulls her off and she doesn't finish it. One of the bad guys says that what Cyndi already said will be enough to help him decode the rest and that it's just a matter of "cartography" now. He should have said "cryptography" (skill of decoding secret writings) and not "cartography" (which has to do with making maps).

Shoot to Kill picture

Other mistake: As the murderer spots a police car coming towards him he turns to his right onto a dirt road, there is a huge boulder at the point where he turns, marked "No trespassing, Bishop Falls camping". As he turns he sideswipes it, rocking the boulder, however the sideswipe has no effect on his vehicle.

Buster (1988)

Buster picture

Revealing mistake: The "Great Train Robbery" actually took place on a two-track railway near Cheddington - the West Coast Main Line. However, the filming took place on the Great Central Railway steam line near Loughborough, which only had one track at that time. They laid a second track for the filming, but omitted to cut down a large tree at the end of the rails, which would block the path of a train. This is blindingly obvious, especially as they show this "atmosphere shot" twice. The tree is still there the second time.

Crocodile Dundee II picture

Revealing mistake: Near the end, Dundee captures Rico (the bad guy) and changes clothes with him. Dundee is at least 6 inches taller than Rico, yet the traded clothes fit both men perfectly.

Audio problem: When Bourne rescues Marie, he fires a silenced pistol at the man who was trying to rape her, but the sound is of an unsilenced gun.

ryguy_1983

Factual error: MacKenzie is referred to as "Gunnery Sergeant". This is not a rank used by British and Commonwealth forces. He actually wears the rank insignia of a Flight Sergeant.
