Halloween 4 picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Jamie is in the closet, looking at a photo of her mother (Jamie Lee Curtis). The photo looks exactly like the scene where Laurie is sitting waiting for Annie on the ledge in the original Halloween, which wasn't photographed at the time, it's clearly a still from the movie.

Die Hard picture

Other mistake: After Powell frantically radios in his distress call, other police cars converge on the street in front of Nakatomi Plaza, blocking off both sides of the street. But when McClane grapples down the building using the firehose, you can see traffic on the street below and none of them are police.

It Takes Two picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Alyssa's father is in her room, she says "Ms. Kensington seems nice. Does she work with you?" Then she holds on to the bedpost and sort of swings herself around it while looking up at the ceiling with her tongue to one side of her mouth-she probably thought it was just a practice shot. She does the same thing in the scene where she is on the pottery wheel with Diane-she quickly looks up towards the camera.

Twins picture

Other mistake: When Devito sends Arnold into the house to get his stuff and go with him to New Mexico and Houston, Devito quickly jumps into the car to drive off. (You can see on the long street behind him that there are no cars coming). Yet, not one second has gone by and you are looking at him from the front of the car and Linda and her sister pull up behind him blocking him in the driveway. They turned in from the left which was the same stretch of street you were looking at with no cars on it just one moment earlier. (00:48:40)

Critters 2 picture

Other mistake: As the brown truck drives away in the scene after the man working in the newspaper office is "harpooned" by a Critter, if you look closely as the truck turns a corner you can see some Critters rolling after it. Well, after they roll past the truck in the bottom left of the screen you can see the Critters roll right smack into another parked car. Obviously the crew forgot to add a turning feature to their Critter balls (which were just some fur taped to a basket ball).

Frantic picture

Other mistake: When Walker and Michelle fall down the steps at Dede's apartment, Walker lights a match to show Michelle the matchbook. The light from the match flickers on their faces but if you watch closely you can see the match go out as soon as Walker strikes it. (00:54:45)

The Naked Gun picture

Other mistake: Pay attention to one of the early innings of the baseball game as one of the Angels players hits a home run. Though probaby intentionally set up this way as to avoid any problems of "logo patents" and such with the real life MLB California Angels team, he is wearing a helmet without the team logo on it. (01:07:35)

Young Guns picture

Other mistake: In the final gun battle when the Regulators are trapped in the attic of the burning house, one of the characters backs into the brick chimney that's coming up through the floor. You can see the entire chimney move when he backs into it.

Above the Law picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Nico and the other agents are at the meat place, they are being fired upon by the drug dealers. In one shot we see a bad guy shoot a cop on a metal staircase. Look in front of him, and there is a round-like object on the staircase This object moves to the right between shots. (00:22:55)

Bull Durham picture

Other mistake: Nuke is having a great game. Crash comes out BEFORE the first pitch to the next batter and instructs him to "throw the next one at the mascot." Nuke does. Crash tells the batter not to dig in because he doesn't now where it's going, etc. The next pitch is a strike (making the count 1-1), yet everyone cheers and Crash throws down to 3rd base like it was a strikeout and the batter walks away.

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.

Space Mutiny picture

Other mistake: When Lea Jansen and Dave Ryder want to leave the room, which is called the "deep freeze", they hear Kalgon and his men coming and "hide" next to the door. When Kalgon and his men enter, the movie wants to tell us that they cannot see Lea and Ryder, although they are obviously in their field of view.

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark picture

Other mistake: When Elvira is being chased by her Uncle Vinnie, you can see the hole in his head from where Elvira throws her stiletto at him. However, the hole in his head is apparent 'before' the scene in which she actually throws her stiletto.

Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood picture

Other mistake: When Melissa opens the front door and Jason is standing there, he raises his right hand, holding an axe, and plunges it straight down. But when Melissa has the axe in her head it is on the opposite side and at a different angle than it should have been. (01:13:45)

Bloodsport picture

Other mistake: During the second day of fighting, fights are shot out of order. For example, When Chong Li and Suan Paredes fight, the (fighters) benches are nearly empty (the one on the right is empty aside from Chong Li's assistant), but in several fights following, they are more than half full. In fact, Paredes can be seen sitting on his bench in shots after Chong Li snaps his leg in half.

Working Girl picture

Other mistake: When Katherine reserves a room at a hotel she talks German. From her weird diction it's obvious that Sigourney Weaver has somehow memorized the text without actually knowing what she is saying. (00:21:50)

Cinema Paradiso picture

Other mistake: There's a chime hanging outside Salvatore's bedroom window that's too far away to cast such a small shadow over his face when he lies in bed and thinks of his childhood. (00:05:40)

Killer Klowns From Outer Space picture

Other mistake: The Giant Killer Klown at the end of the movie picks up the Ice Cream truck and hurls it into the wall resulting in an explosion that destroys the entire car. The two ice cream drivers say that the way they lived was by hiding in the ice cream truck freezer. First, ice cream truck freezers cannot fit two people and even if they could, the car was blown apart from the back first which would have killed them instantly anyway.
