Best fantasy movie mistakes of 1990
Plot hole: At the end of the film, we see Edward carving ice sculptures in his mansion. How did he get the ice up there? First of all, it takes place in a warm climate and I didn't see a freezer up there in the castle. He couldn't have gotten ice from town because firstly he had scissors for hands and couldn't have gripped the ice. And, even if by some miracle he could, he wouldn't be able to buy any from town because everyone in town but Kim was convinced that Edward was dead, she told everyone that they killed each other. And Kim didn't bring it to him because she told her granddaughter in the end that she never saw him again after that night. So where did he get that ice?
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when Snow White has already been tied up by Lord Malice, the Dwarfelles come to rescue her. As the Dwarfelles are beating up Lord Malice, there's a quick shot of Snow White again and she is untied and has her hands covering her cheeks. Next shot, the fighting between the Dwarfelles and Lord Malice continues and Snow White is again tied up.
Continuity mistake: Toward the end, when James Belushi swerves to miss his dog in the middle of the street he crashes his car into a parked car and then roll to a stop. Notice before the camera cuts to a frontal shot of the wrecked car, that there is a huge spider crack in the windshield, as if James hit it with his head. This huge spider crack then disappears once the camera cuts to the frontal shot and the windshield is in perfect shape.
Continuity mistake: After Cody leaves prison and gets in the car with his friends, we see him letting Angel into the back seat, then just two seconds later, when the camera switches to the view of the prison, we can hear the engine started. He couldn't wait for Angel to enter, then enter himself and start the car in two seconds.
Factual error: When Bill Cosby (as a ghost) goes to the doctor and the doctor checks his heart (which is not beating), Bill Cosby then presses play on a tape recording of a sound of a beating heart. The doctor hears this through the stethoscope, even though the tape recorder is behind Bill's back, which is not possible.
Continuity mistake: When Decker is introduced killing the family, watch carefully when the mother falls over. There's a very quick insert-shot of what appears to be blood-covered fruit (or something similar) rolling away, leaving streaks of blood across the ground. However, she wasn't holding any fruit, nor was there enough time in between edits for her to have dripped blood onto fruit and then knocked them over. Obviously the product of a few shots being cut for pacing, but a mistake nonetheless.
