Beauty and the Beast picture Beauty 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)

Hot Shots! picture Hot Shots! mistake picture

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.

My Girl picture

Audio problem: At Thomas J's memorial service, Vada goes up to the coffin crying. Just after she says something about his glasses being missing, her father comes up to comfort her. Watch his mouth - he is heard talking but his lips aren't moving at first (they are in the next shot).

My Own Private Idaho picture

King Ralph picture

Continuity mistake: The scene is where Duncan is sitting across from Ralph trying to convince him that he's the king. It's a taco stand or something. At the start of the scene you see a bottle of Tabasco sauce on the table. In the next view, the bottle is gone and Ralph gets up to get a bottle of Tabasco sauce from the counter.

Doc Hollywood picture

Factual error: Deer are not repelled by the smell of human urine, and in fact it does not have "a" smell - it has many. The smell of human urine varies enormously based upon diet, health and environmental factors so that no wild animal could possibly be scared of them all. Even if Lou didn't know this (and everything about her character suggests she should), Doctor Stone would - he is a doctor, after all.

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)

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.

Dying Young picture

Continuity mistake: There is a long sequence where the guy is talking to J. Roberts - I think its when they are at a beach house or cabin. The shots switch from him to her, in tight shots on their face. Watch him and you'll see his sideburns change lengths right before your eyes.

L.A. Story picture

Continuity mistake: As Harris and Trudi are driving down the freeway, while having a shootout with other drivers, Harris hits a water container on the truck next to them and water sprays across his windscreen. In the next shot (which is wider) the windscreen is completely dry and remains that way for the rest of the scene.
