The People Under the Stairs picture

Plot hole: The Man goes completely trigger happy shooting all the walls all around his house, trying to kill Fool, Leroy, and Roach at different points. The police come in and don't notice anything wrong. What about the bullet holes all over the place? (00:41:35)

Father of the Bride picture

Continuity mistake: During the wedding reception, George (Steve Martin) is called outside to meet with the police because there are too many cars parked in the street. Notice that the police car is curbside completely surrounded by cars. In fact, the whole street is packed with cars, making one wonder how the police car got up to the house.

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. (01:00:50)

Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey picture

Other mistake: Just before the evil robots capture Bill and Ted's girlfriends, after they crash through the window, the girlfriends ask the robots: "Who are you?" and Bill goes "Well, I'm really Evil Ted!" and unzips himself and out pops Evil Ted, and the other robot goes, "And I'm really Evil Bill!" and out pops Evil Bill. When the robots are herding the girlfriends out just before knocking them out with their breath, you can see two sets of clothes in the bottom left corner if you watch closely.

City Slickers picture

Continuity mistake: There is no way the cow (a Hereford I think) could have given birth to that calf (a Jersey or something like that). [The mom is a mixed-breed BEEF cow, the calf a purebred Jersey DAIRY calf. An amazing feat of animal husbandry.]

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.
