Best drama movie mistakes of 1991

Beauty and the Beast pictureBeauty and the Beast mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the 'Gaston' song sequence, near the end, Gaston is sitting in his huge antler chair with Lefou. In the wide shot, there is a bear rug behind the chair. The camera does a close up of Gaston, then in the next wide shot, the chair is on top of the bear rug. Also, after this, Gaston gets up off of the chair and in the next shot, both the chair and the rug disappear completely. (00:29:20)

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.

New Jack City picture

Character mistake: After Pookie is killed (with his eyes open) and the bomb is strapped to him, he blinks his eyes.

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.

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.

JFK (1991)

Factual error: In the scene where there is a train passing, the cars are marked "Burlington Northern." There was NO Burlington Northern until 1970, 7 years AFTER the shooting.

Visible crew/equipment: The boom mic and even the boom pole are visible when Sugita and Chris ask Barry for messages at the hotel reception. (00:48:20)

Dutch picture

Continuity mistake: When Doyle is eating at the homeless shelter, he polishes his silverware and lays down a spoon, knife, and another spoon in that order. In the following shots the order changes to spoon, spoon, knife.

Sleeping with the Enemy picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ben knocks on "Sarah's" back door with the apples, the sides of her hair are up and it is evident that there are no visible bruises on her face. However, the next evening at dinner, "Sarah" has her hair down and after moving her hair, a large, fresh bruise is observed by Ben. If this bruise was present, it would have been seen the night before when "Sarah's" hair was 1/2 up.

The Five Heartbeats picture

Audio problem: When Eddie runs in and starts singing "I Got Nothing But Love" the song is playing in the background and the lyrics can be heard ahead of him actually singing them.

Bugsy (1991)

Bugsy picture

Factual error: Warren Beatty refers to the "Hoover Dam" being able to generate the power needed for Las Vegas and his Flamingo casino. The problem is that he supposedly made the comment in 1937. At that time, the "Hoover Dam" was still called "Boulder Dam." It wasn't renamed to honour President Herbert Hoover until about ten years later.

The Doors picture

Factual error: Morrison did finish film school in real life. He did not drop out as depicted in the film.

Boyz n the Hood pictureBoyz n the Hood mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Ricky is shot through the chest, the blood pack is visible bulging through his shirt. (01:28:30)

BillyBlake
The Prince of Tides picture

Other mistake: Throughout the movie, Nick Nolte and Barbra Streisand take cab rides. There are thousands of cabbies in NYC, so how come they always get in a cab with the same license plate?

Thelma and Louise picture

Continuity mistake: At the western bar Louise is drinking a margarita. As the shot goes back and forth between Thelma & Louise, the contents of the drink magically decrease and increase again. The level of Thelma's coke rises as well, when Harlan leaves them. (00:14:00)

My Girl picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Thomas J. pulls the fish out of the water, the hook falls out of the fish's mouth twice.

Cool as Ice picture

Revealing mistake: Towards the end when Vanilla Ice jumps the motorcycle over Nick's car, you can see the ramp he used through the car's windshield.

My Father the Hero picture

Continuity mistake: When Andre is waiting up for Nikki to come home, he kicks off his flip flops and one of them ends up on the coffee table. In the next shot, the shoe isn't there anymore.

ACertainShadeofGreen
Grand Canyon picture

Continuity mistake: After Kevin Kline slices his thumb (finger?) in the kitchen, his wife bandages it. Then, as the earthquake hits, they run outside and you can see that the bandage doubles in size.

Under Suspicion picture

Continuity mistake: In a few scenes we see in the background BT Telephone boxes this film is set in the 1960's so why are the boxes new with the new BT logo on them. In fact, BT boxes at all? It didn't exist then.

My Own Private Idaho picture

Factual error: When Mike is in Idaho he has a clear view of Mt. Hood. Even if it were possible to see the mountain from so far away (over 200 miles), there is another mountain range lying between Idaho and Mt. Hood, blocking the view.

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. (00:12:35)

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.

Delicatessen picture

Continuity mistake: The position and intactness of the biscuits changes between shots, as Louison puts the sugar pot on the biscuit plate because the tea begins to overspill from the cup. (00:27:20)

Hamster Premium member
White Fang picture

Continuity mistake: At the end when Jack (Ethan Hawke) is nailing the roof of his cabin he stops and looks around with the nails in his mouth. His head turns and the camera goes back and forth and suddenly the nails are in his hand. He then runs down the latter with no sign of the nails anywhere.

Slacker picture

Continuity mistake: As the cops are taking the Hit and Run Son away, notice he his carrying a red plaid tote bag. Later in the movie, it miraculously appears in the possession of Still Working on the Same Painting. It can be plainly seen as she and her friend, Having a Day, are walking into the city sunset.

Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken picture

Continuity mistake: When Sonora does her very first dive, we see Clifford release Lightning and he begins to trot up the ramp. In the next shot, the camera shows the front view of the horse, and he is cantering up the ramp. Then the camera goes back to Lightning's front view, and he is trotting again.

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.

Guilty by Suspicion picture

Continuity mistake: When Larry is burning his books he throws one at Dorothy who is looking out of the window. The upper right part of a window pane breaks, but in the next shot the left side is broken. (00:11:20)
