Star Trek V: The Final Frontier picture

Other mistake: Spock lifts his crew mates with the rocket boots. He passes deck numbers 35 through 78 from bottom to top. First off, deck numbers go from top to bottom. The bridge is on deck 1. Second, the Enterprise of that class only had 23 decks!

Back to the Future Part II picture
Back to the Future Part II mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Notice Marty's hair in the scene when he's playing "Johnny B. Goode." It's quite larger than when he says, some seconds later, "I guess that you're not ready for it yet." That's because when he says that, it's a recycled shot from the original BTTF, whereas most shots showing he's playing the guitar are newly made for BTTF2. However, Marty's hair is considerably longer in the new shots.

The Abyss picture

Continuity mistake: Early in the film Bud throws his wedding ring down the latrine and then retrieves it with his right hand so it is covered with the blue disinfectant. In a (much) later scene, Bud has a blue right hand, despite not having had one in the intervening period.

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.

Tango & Cash picture

Continuity mistake: When Stallone stops the bad guys in the semi full of cocaine, they fly through a windshield that is apparently made of plate glass, and not the safety glass found on almost every other vehicle windshield on earth.

Dead Bang picture

Continuity mistake: When Beck meets Webly on Christmas Day, Webly takes his glasses off and throws them on the desk, but in the next shot (from behind) he is still wearing them.

Halloween 5 picture

Revealing mistake: In the beginning when Michael crawls out of the mine shaft that was just bombed he floats downstream. You see that he floats up to the old man's dock. If you look at him you can clearly see that he is wearing a black lifejacket. The filmmakers didn't even try to hide it under his suit, it is clearly visible on the outside of his jumpsuit.

See No Evil, Hear No Evil picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie Dave takes Walley's jacket and uses it to help them slide down a cable. Before they slid down, Dave tells Walley to hold on, and Walley asks if they're going to be above the ground. Dave tells him no, and off they go. However, Dave is deaf, and reads lips, and Walley is standing behind him when he asks the question. So how did Dave read his lips if he wasn't looking at him?

Blue Steel picture

Factual error: After the first victim they claim to have found a shell with 'Megan Turner' on it. That's not possible as we see Ron Silver fire at the victim and immediatley run away. If it had been an automatic then the gun would eject the shell, but it's a revolver, which doesn't eject shells.

Turner & Hooch picture

Factual error: Hooch is a french mastiff. The dog he gets pregnant is a collie. Different breed dogs do not make purebred puppies. Hooch's pups would be part collie, part mastiff. In the end of the movie, one pup is pure mastiff like hooch and 4 are pure collies like their mother.

Continuity mistake: This mistake occurs when Dalton shakes Emmett's hand while outside the horse barn. When they first meet he is working, wearing gloves.

Pet Sematary picture

Continuity mistake: There is no knife on the table when the wife enters the kitchen at the very end, however, she walks straight to Louis, hugs him and then magically a knife appears at the edge of the table which she picks up and uses to stab him (implied - the movie actually ends at that point).

Licence to Kill picture

Factual error: When the air hose on the truck is severed, the brakes release. In reality, on an air-braking system, if the air hose is severed, the brakes lock on, as a safety measure.

Collision Course picture

Continuity mistake: During the "exciting" conclusion, Investigator Natsuo runs toward the villain's vehicle, jumps, and kicks through the windshield. Besides the fact that there are some poor special effects at work, watch this quick shot closely. As he is flying through the air in that split second, the villain's car changes colour! It is quite obvious, as the car goes from a dark red color to dull grey.

Deepstar Six picture

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie when they reach the surface, you can see that the horizon is nothing but a big wall with the sky painted on it. You can see the water splashing up against the wall.

Jazetopher
An Innocent Man picture

Factual error: Rainwood exposes Parnell as a bent cop and as a result his conviction is quashed. That can't happen. Rainwood pleaded guilty in a plea bargain so regardless of future events he is guilty in the eyes of the law. He could appeal against the severity of his sentence but his conviction would be upheld, regardless of how unfair that is. (There have been real life incidences of this kind of thing happening).

Music Box picture

Continuity mistake: Ann visits her mother's grave at the cemetery with her father, who wipes off snow from the mother's photo on the marble. Couple of minutes later, a new shot shows the photo covered in snow again.
