Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure picture

Revealing mistake: At the end, when all the historical figures are going back into the phone booth, you can see the trap door in the back open and the people go through it. It would be kind of tight to fit all of them in the booth at the same time.

Revealing mistake: After Dooley and Jerry Lee were shot at and the window was blown out in Dooley's Mustang, they give chase to the Mercedes, look carefully at the "dog".

Return from the River Kwai picture

Revealing mistake: During the transport of the POWs by train (which starts about 26 mins into the film) the number on the side of the engine is visible as 719. About 3 mins (filmwise) into the journey it appears in mirror image. It appears they filmed the train moving from right to left, but throughout the film the train moves from left to right, so the film must have been reversed. It happens twice, the second time 14 min 24 sec after the first. (00:29:34)

Uncle Buck picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Buck causes all the pots and pans to crash while Tia and her mother are hugging, the final of the "reaction shots" is a close up of the two kids. You can see Amy Madigan squeeze their arms as a cue to make their shocked expressions; prior to this Gaby Hoffman was looking up with a neutral expression on her face. (01:33:10)
