Best movie mistake pictures of 1990
Continuity mistake: When Kevin is putting washing in and taking clothes out of the dryer, he places the orange bottle of liquid on top of the washer with the handle facing away. On taking the clothes out of the drier and closing the door, he turns to see the metal heater scaring him by saying "Kevin." Look over his left shoulder when the shot comes back to Kevin, the orange bottle now has it's handle facing outwards, and the top isn't on properly.
Visible crew/equipment: When moving into their apartment Patrick Swazye kicks the statue to make it swing so they can get it inside. As they are looking at the statue, two moving men cross in back of them carring a mirror and as they pass you can see the director and camera crew in the reflection.
Continuity mistake: When Henry has just shown De Niro the guns and he returns to his car, you see him light up a cigarette. When the shot changes the cigarette has vanished.
Continuity mistake: Bruce Willis is emerging from an underground air-vent when the plane with General Esperanza is landing. Initially the plane is coming on a direct course for him and he struggles to get out. In fact the front wheel is on course with and knocks the vent cover. But in the very next scene, the tire marks clearly show the front wheel passed to the right of the vent and so completely missed it.
Continuity mistake: 35 minutes into the film, Cher enters her bedroom with a bowl in her right hand and a bottle in the left. When she gets into bed, both have switched hands.
Visible crew/equipment: Look over Val's right shoulder as Rhonda is supposedly driving upside down with her legs sticking out the back window of the truck cab and you can se a man driving for her.
Revealing mistake: The Gremlin who throws the beaker full of acid has his arm operated by a stick, which is visible as he chucks the beaker.
Visible crew/equipment: When a carload of bad guys drives past the front of Seagal's sister's house and riddles the front of the house with machine-gun fire, Seagal quickly slams the front door shut, and you can very clearly see all the stunt charges attached to the door.
Continuity mistake: When Annie Wilkes is shaving Paul Sheldon, when she is almost done she stops shaving and talks to him about something briefly. Before she stops talking there is still some shaving cream under his nose. Then when the camera goes back to Sheldon, after she's done talking, there is no shaving cream under his nose.
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.
Visible crew/equipment: When the Red October sub has surfaced to let the crew get off because of the supposed nuclear leak, there is a brief shot where you can clearly see the camera and its filming crew in their tennis shoes on the deck.
Deliberate mistake: When Steven Seagal and Kelly LeBrock are in the jeep, being chased through some fields by the cops, some of the shots of the jeep are flipped. Note the bullet holes on the windshield switch sides, as does the driver/steering wheel, the windshield wipers and the front license plate. As an aside, also note the numbers/letters on the license plate that have been altered via CG in the flipped shots.
Continuity mistake: During the final battle between Boone and Decker, at one point, they are wrestling on a wooden bridge, and the board beneath Boone's head breaks in half and falls into the cavern below. (It is even highlighted in a very dramatic shot looking downwards over the whole cavern as it falls) Yet, a few shots later, the board has suddenly re-appeared beneath his head, unbroken.
