Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade pictureIndiana Jones and The Last Crusade mistake picture

Other mistake: At one point, Indy rolls off of the side of a tank, and somehow gets a strap around one of the guns pointing out from the sides. The end of the barrel has already been blown open by the rock he shoved in earlier. How did the strap get around that big cluster of metal, and then back again so he could climb back on the tank? (01:34:15 - 01:35:05)

The Package picture

Other mistake: Sergeant Johnny Gallagher (Gene Hackman) and Lieutenant Milon Delich (Dennis Franz) are in a supposedly deserted building searching for a group of conspirators who plan to assassinate both the USA and USSR presidents. Delich finds a police colleague of his in the building, and Delich kills his colleague. When he fires his revolver, the sound of the blanks can be heard, slightly out of synch with the gun blasts on the sound track.

Major League picture

Other mistake: During the one game playoff against the Yankees, the runner Taylor picks off at first base has the same number as the batter who had just struck out. Also, the number they both wear has been long since retired by the Yankees and therefore no player could ever wear it again. Again, in the first game against the Yankees, the first base coach also has the same number, making it three Yankee players with the number 37.

Tango & Cash picture

Other mistake: Their big 4x4 at the end is really a two wheel drive. When they make the big jump with the fire all around them you can see the front end in the light. There is no front differential, just two big A frames.

K-9 picture

Other mistake: In the bar scene where Dooly is being beat up by the bar thugs, When Jerry Lee starts to attack them there is a shot of the dog lunging at the thugs. If you look carefully at the shot the dog is fake. You must look very carefully it is only a second. (00:32:30)

Born on the Fourth of July picture

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation picture

Other mistake: Another note about Clark's falling through the ceiling and onto his son's bed: Take note of the shot of him in the attic after falling through the ceiling. He's standing on the upper bunk of the bed now, but from the shot in the attic, he's only down to his knees or so. Assuming his home's ceiling joists are 8 inches or so, then the mattress of the upper bunk would have to be no more than, say, 10 inches from the ceiling for that much of him to still be in the attic while standing on the bed. I've never seen a bunk bed whose upper bed gave you less than a foot of space between mattress and ceiling! (00:33:05)

Homer & Eddie picture

Other mistake: Eddie describes her brain tumor as inoperable because her brain wraps itself around it like jellyfish. The German subtitles translate 'jellyfish' into 'eel in jelly'. (00:37:20)

Back to the Future Part II picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Biff confronts Marty outside the swinging doors while Marty is watching himself talk to his 1955 Mom and Dad, you can see that Crispin Glover (George McFly) has been replaced with Jeffrey Weissman. There are other scenes where you can tell it isn't him, but this is the most prominent one. Glover wasn't in the 2nd movie due to him and the producers not agreeing to a movie contract. All the scenes you see him clearly were taken from the first film. (i.e. where Marty is looking at him through the binoculars at the dance). (01:27:59)

The Abyss picture

Other mistake: When the water tentacle enters the rig, in one shot in the 4:3 version of the film on video you can see that the tentacle is a superimposed special effect because of the dead straight line where it is supposed to have come out of the water.

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure picture

Other mistake: At the Circle K when future Bill and Ted have finished talking to present Bill and Ted and go back into the phone booth, where are the other 5 historical figures? Especially as it is emphasized that they are all squished together, when they land you can see Beethoven, but he isn't there at the end when they leave.

Out Cold picture

Other mistake: When Ana's fiance lands to pick them up, the Cessna that he flew could only fit five people and that would be three people pushed together in the back. Also that particular plane can't take off in that short of a distance.
