Predator 2 picture

Other mistake: In the slaughterhouse scene, after Harrigan has injured the Predator with his shotgun and Keyes reappears, the Predator throws its disc, and severs Keyes in half at the waist. We see his legs flop to the ground, and blood pour from above, but his upper half (torso, backpack and weaponry) mysteriously remain hovering out of sight. (According to the director, the MPAA made him cut the footage of the top half of his body hitting the ground because it was too gory, creating this odd error). (01:21:50)

Suggested correction: We don't actually know if the disc completely cuts Keyes in half (or just passes through him and leaves a gaping hole). You see the blood, but the movie is edited so that it cuts back to Harrigan looking on in horror for a split-second, then back to Keyes' body on the floor (mostly obscured by a cement pillar).

They blatantly show his legs hitting the ground without the top half! I can only assume you watched an edited-for-TV version or something. It's VERY clear in the movie that he was cut in half. (In actuality, the scene was the victim of the MPAA according to the director... they had to cut the bit where the top half of his body hit the ground because it was too gory... creating this odd movie mistake).

Darkman picture

Other mistake: At the carnival, you can see an African-American man staring at the camera for a while. I am unsure if he is a crew-member watching over the scene, or if he is just an extra trying to get onscreen.

Suggested correction: He isn't staring at the camera. He's glancing over at Peyton and Julie as they are joyously dancing upon exiting the ferris wheel.

Home Alone picture

Other mistake: Kevin rides down the stairs on his sled and out the door. He originally lined up the sled at the top of the stairs, but it is clear that the stairs lie to the right of the door. His sled went straight down the stairs, therefore making it impossible to go straight out the door in one movement as shown. (00:25:25)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles picture

Other mistake: In the music within the ending credits, the lyrics incorrectly state that Raph is the leader of the group when all Turtle fans past and present know it is Leo.

Marked For Death picture

Other mistake: When Seagal is in the factory in Jamaica, a "Jamaican" bad guy jumps up from behind a barrel, you can see that he is in fact white - you can see the make-up line on his neck, and his wig is crooked.

Kindergarten Cop picture

Other mistake: The toy store manager has his assistant gift wrap an empty box. The race car set is still on the table fully assembled.

Suggested correction: The manager brings the box to the counter and tells the assistant to gift wrap the box, but we don't actually see what happens in the store after Crisp leaves. There is no indication how much time has passed. It is plausible that the manager brought the box to the assistant and told them to gift wrap it, but that the assistant knows they will also have to disassemble the toy and put it in the box first. We don't ever see the car set still in the window after the customer leaves so we can't assume the assistant wrapped an empty box.

Nuns on the Run picture

Other mistake: When Casey's men are robbing the Triads, Abbott says "Don't move or you're dead." He then turns to his left, and while facing left, he shoots two of the red Mercedes' tires. However, he is standing directly behind the Mercedes, so it would be impossible for him to turn to his left and shoot two of the car's tires.

Death Warrant picture

Other mistake: A fast editing makes a double kick on the face all the more impressive not to mention impossible. Get the pause button ready. (01:08:00)

Presumed Innocent picture

Other mistake: When Harrison Ford returns to the crime scene to search for "evidence" we see blood stains on the carpet, which has been on the carpet for days. The blood is bright red and shows no signs of coagulation, but blood turns dark red when it coagulates after only a few hours.

Quick Change picture

Other mistake: At the very end, a plane just sitting at the gate was used to simulate one preparing to leave. The landing gear ground safety pins (with red streamers) were still installed as the engines were started, but the pins have to be removed beforehand to keep personnel clear when the engines are running.

Dick Tracy picture

Other mistake: When Big Boys' men drive through the garage door trying to escape, Dick Tracy, the cops and the goons start opening fire. Yet, nobody seems to feel the need to stop and reload their weapon. They just keep firing without ever running out of bullets.

Men at Work picture

Other mistake: When the bad guy is sliding down the tube and there is a close up of his face, it's constantly lit. There couldn't have been any light in the tube, since it's completely closed.

Cop Target picture

Other mistake: Tough beat cop Farley Wood in his spare time built a special electronic machine to feed his cat. He needs to take off for Miami at 3 PM. When his cat is eating before his departure though, the clock on the machine says it's "12 AM", which would be midnight, not noon.

Hard to Kill picture

Other mistake: Even though Mason Storm is avenging his family's slaying by corrupt cops and a politician, he has committed several crimes while doing so - he snaps the neck of a person when he has them incapacitated after a fight, then he commits 2 car jackings, then he holds someone at gunpoint, innocent or not he would have been arrested along with the conspirators for the murder and carjacking.

Martial Law picture

Other mistake: When the coroner lifts the sheet to show the cops Jimmy Kong's body and shows them the dim mak bruise on his chest, you can see Jimmy breathing.
