Pump up the Volume picture

Revealing mistake: Near the middle of the movie Samantha Mathis is walking across the high school campus. The name of the high school in the movie is "Hubert Humphrey High School, " but behind her, above the library door, a sign says "Saugus High School Library". Shows better in 4.3 aspect.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead picture

Revealing mistake: During the pirate attack, Rosencrantz sits up in bed, narrowly avoiding a sword that's thrust through the wall next to him. Just before the sword appears, the film jumps a little. It also jumps again just after the sword has been withdrawn and he lies back down. Clearly these two motions (him sitting up and down in bed and the sword appearing/disappearing) are two separate takes that were spliced together.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch picture

Revealing mistake: When Henry Futterman is attacked by the winged Gremlin, most pedestrians just pass by, only glancing occasionally at Dick Miller's frantic performance, since the Gremlin was only inserted. Only when Futterman smashes the pest into the wet cement, the Gremlin is the 'real' thing.

01:02:35

A Shock to the System picture

Revealing mistake: When Graham and Stella are in bed, the camera shows only their arms intertwined as if he's lying on top of her. She's gasping loudly in response to his thrusting, but their arms never move back and forth to reflect this, so it's clear they're not really having sex.

My Blue Heaven picture

Revealing mistake: Vinnie places two coin-filled water bottles in the trunk of his car and closes the trunk. As he is walking around the car to get in, the back of the car suddenly sinks down, which by itself indicates a special effect, as springs don't behave that way. But in addition, the rear tires, which would appear flattened if under a heavy load, are completely unaffected by all that "weight."

Mr. Destiny picture

Revealing mistake: When Larry is camping in the tree outside Ellen's house, if you look at his face before he falls it is a stuntman falling, not James Belushi.

Ernest Goes To Jail picture

Revealing mistake: There are a couple times you can see the tape that marks where the actors are supposed to stand in the shot. In the beginning, when Bobby and his brother walk in on Ernest trying to get a cleaning machine to work, look on the floor and you will see some tape in the shape of a T. Bobby will move his feet to the T. Also when a criminal begs for Nash's help because he killed someone, and Nash walks forward, look on the floor to see another tape T, and what do ya know, Nash stops right on the T.

Nuns on the Run picture

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning of the film, when Charlie and Brian steal the Honda there is a shot where Brian says "Charlie, slow down, think". By comparing the view outside of the car window in this shot to the surroundings of the previous and subsequent shots, we can see that it was filmed out of sequence, and in a different part of the parking lot.

Edward Scissorhands picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Kim comes home early from the camping trip, Edward is startled and begins stabbing the water bed, thus causing it to spring many leaks. If you actually look at the bed, it isn't jiggling like a water bed should and the water is just spraying out even in places he isn't stabbing.

Revealing mistake: Our hero Sherman is talking to Maria's husband, and right after he tells a story he coughs and falls on the table dead. The thing is, he falls with his mouth open, but as he lays there on the table he closes his mouth.
