Kickboxer 2: The Road Back picture

Continuity mistake: David Sloane (Sasha Mitchell) is the brother of Kurt and Eric Sloane (shown in Kickboxer, with Jean-Claude Van Damme). In the opening scene you can see pictures of the brothers, but the Kurt and Eric Sloane featured on the photos are NOT the Kurt and Eric Sloane from the Kickboxer movie. You also see pictures of Xian and Mylee, from 'Kickboxer'. Then later in the movie, when David and Xian 'meet', David asks Xian, "Who are you?" Well, he would obviously know, given that he's got Xian's photo hanging on his wall at home.

Backdraft picture

Continuity mistake: When the firefighters go to the house of the first backdraft "victim" you see that he has gone through the windshield of his car. But when we saw him opening his front door and getting hurled away from the house he didn't land anyway near the car.

Hot Shots! picture
Hot Shots! mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Near the start of the film, when Lt. Harley is watching his love interest show off by doing gymnastics on the tree limbs, several times you can see the actual pole she is swinging on, not the tree limb.

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves picture

Factual error: Robin and Azeem land at the white cliffs and Robin says something like, 'Tonight we will dine with my father'. Those white cliffs are the Seven Sisters in East Sussex, about 200 miles from Nottingham. It would probably take about two weeks to walk it. They also reach Hadrian's Wall in the next scene, which is 200 miles further north than Nottingham.

Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man picture

Other mistake: There is a patch on the jacket Harley (Rourke) wears, that appears and disappears throughout the movie. It's on the front lower right side. It is there when he's standing outside their friends' bar with Marlboro, it's gone when they are inside.

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country picture

Continuity mistake: When Captain Kirk and the shape shifter are fighting on the planet (the shape shifter looks exactly like Kirk). They are rolling through the snow about to roll over Bones. In one shot, it looks like they will roll over his feet first, and then the rest of his body. In the next shot, it is a little closer and they roll over Bones' right arm first and not his feet first.

The Last Boy Scout picture

Continuity mistake: After the limo crashed and Joe is standing next to it, take a look at the rear wheel of the limo. In one shot it isn't moving, in the next shot it is. This keeps alternating a few times.

Child's Play 3 picture

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning when Chuckie is turning on all the toys in the office, he flies a helicopter and the string is so visible its funny. The helicopter then crashes and you can still see it. In the next shot the man looks at it and there is no string.

The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear picture

Continuity mistake: At the conference, when the President is announced, there is a wide shot of the crowd and you see a lot of people standing in the background against the wall. There are also several spotlights turned on. Then it cuts to the stage where Frank and the squad are walking. When it cuts back to the crowd all the people in the background are gone and the spotlights are switched off. The crowd reappears later and the spotlights are on again.

Eve of Destruction picture

Other mistake: When Eve runs into the BMW from behind, the guy slams into his steering wheel. When you are hit from behind, you will slam backwards into your seat.It happens twice, the third time the airbag deploys and stays inflated (real airbags deflate in a second, they are not balloons).

Kuffs (1991)

Kuffs picture

Continuity mistake: When the jumper shoots Kuffs before going off the ledge, pay attention to the trajectory of the bullet fired from the gun and then to the bullet wound that Kuffs shows us in the taxi cab. They don't match. If the bullet got him where it was supposed to, he would've been hit in the hip/upper thigh area, instead of the side of his abdomen like in the cab.

Hudson Hawk picture

Continuity mistake: When Tommy and Darwin Mayflower are in the back of the limo, Darwin dives out and the door slams immediately before Tommy has time to catch it. The shot changes to outside the limo and Darwin is just now jumping from the limo. It is not just the same shot from a different angle because this time the door stays open much longer, long enough for the limo to drive out of the shot. From this angle there would have been more than enough time for Tommy to grab the door.

Guy
Showdown in Little Tokyo picture

Continuity mistake: In one scene where a guy is getting his car crushed with him in it, there's a two second scene with a dummy in the car then it's switched back to the guy.

Double Impact picture

Revealing mistake: During the car smuggling scene where Van Damme is fighting on the boat one of the thugs slides/falls against the side of one of the cars. If you look closely, you can see the side view mirror on the car is made of rubber.

Point Break picture

Revealing mistake: During the night surfing scene notice that the sun is evident in the background (look closely it does not appear long). There are also shots where you can see clouds and faint blue sky. Moments later you see Keanu and Lori sitting in the water with completely different lighting which was actually taken at night and further distinguishes that the surfing shots were not actually done at night time. I heard the scene was shot during the day with a filter so it looked like it was shot at night.

Highlander II: The Quickening picture

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, Katana and Blake are worrying about the possibility that MacLeod has spoken with Neyman and knows the exact coordinates of the hole in the shield. That's odd, because a few scenes before we see Katana and Blake monitoring MacLeod as he speaks with Neyman in the prison Max. There Neyman tells the coordinates. So they know he knows.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze picture

Revealing mistake: When Raphael and Keno are in the junkyard and the fight breaks out, some of the weapons bend and twist. The staves are supposed to be solid wood.

F/X2 (1991)

F/X2 picture

Revealing mistake: When Rollie is hanging from the ladder and the bolt breaks, you can see the smoke from the exploding bolt.

Run (1991)

Run picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie two of the mob goons are dangling Patrick Dempsey over the rooftop. After a brief scuffle Dempsey is hanging on by one of the men's pants, which are ripped down to his ankles. When it shows the pantless goon fall off it cuts to inside where the mob boss sees him through the window, but his pants are now pulled up.

Out For Justice picture

Continuity mistake: When Richie shoots Bobby on the sidewalk, after he spits on him, he walks to the road to get into the red sports car. Bobby's wife then runs over and gets on her knees to attend to Bobby, there is no red sports car on the road in the background, but in the next shot it shows Richie getting into the car and taking off from the position the car was originally waiting.

Wedlock picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Frank and Tracy are about to surrender at the hotel and the cops start shooting, Frank yells "What the hell is going on here?" Frank then hides behind the car and you briefly can see the boom mike reflected in the car window.

Rocketeer picture

Continuity mistake: When Cliff is being chased by the mobsters in the fancy restaurant, he escapes by flying through a stained glass dome directly above the dance floor. Two mobsters below aim up at him and start firing as he crashes through the dome, but no glass showers down on them.

Stone Cold picture

Other mistake: When Joe Huff goes to the fight pit and jumps in, he has on fingerless gloves. However, during the fight he is barehanded and when the shot returns to Joe Huff he has the gloves on again.

The Guyver picture

Continuity mistake: After defeating Fulton Balcus, Sean removes the armor and has no clothes on. As Sean and Mizky leave, Sean is wearing sneakers. Mizky only brought him a shirt to wear.

Add time

Ricochet picture

Factual error: In the scene where Earl is fighting the other prisoner, he is using a "sword" made from a bar of metal, it has a blade that is well over 2 feet long from the tip to the hilt. At the end of the fight the other prisoner is standing with his back against a solid concrete pillar, but Blake somehow manages to shove the "sword" through him all the way up to the hilt. This wouldn't be possible unless Blake were somehow able to shove the bar into the concrete.

Flight of the Intruder picture

Continuity mistake: During the catapult launch for the SAM suppression mission, we can see two Shrike missiles on the right wing pylons. In the next shot, there is only one. At this point they still haven't reached the SAM site so they wouldn't need to fire one. A little later in another shot (right before they switch to active radar) we see two Shrikes again.

Suburban Commando picture

Other mistake: When the paperboy throws a newspaper at Hulk Hogan, and he throws it back, hits him and he falls off his bike into a bush. If you look closely, you can see him run into the bush, instead of being knocked into it.

The Hard Way picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the cop car chasing the tow truck does a complete flip in the air, a roll bar is clearly seen where there was none before.

Add time

Toy Soldiers picture

Continuity mistake: When the lead terrorist wakes up the morning after his father is murdered in prison, he discovers that the power has been cut to the school. Shortly after that, when the boys enter the restroom, you can see that the lights above the mirror and on the ceiling are lit. It may be possible for SOME lights to be working on battery power (like the ones above the mirror), but it's not likely that all of them would be battery backed up.
