Home Alone 2: Lost in New York picture

Continuity mistake: In the first film, it is mentioned several times that Kevin is 8 years old. However, in this film it is stated that he is 10. When his parents are in the Miami airport security office, they say that he was left alone last Christmas. That would make him 9. Both films take place the same days, from about three days before Christmas until Christmas morning, so even if Kevin is born around Christmas time this is still a mistake.

Continuity mistake: In his cameo in this film, Tim Burton is holding something in his left hand that looks like a remote of some sort when we first see him in the background.

Wayne's World picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when everyone is in Wayne's basement, we see Benjamin painfully walk up to Wayne's house for each ending in the dark. When the scene changes to Wayne's basement for the first ending, you can see through the basement window directly behind them that it's broad daylight. This is especially easy to see when the equipment starts to spark.

3 Ninjas picture

Other mistake: When the three ninjas are kidnapped and locked in that room, Tum-Tum is complaining about being hungry. Later on, before the fighting match between Grandpa and Snider, Tum-Tum gives Grandpa jelly beans. Why didn't Tum-Tum just eat those before?

My Cousin Vinny picture

Continuity mistake: The scene filmed in 'Daves Bar-B-Q' is across the street from a bank that has an outdoor sign indicating time and temperature visible through the restaurant window behind Vinny. When the meal begins, the time is in the 12:00 o'clock hour. Seconds later when the clock is visible again the time is in the 4:00 o'clock hour. The judge only permitted a 60 minute recess.

Mr. Baseball picture

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the movie when the Dragons are facing the Giants for the Pennant, Hammer is up to bat and get a hit. When you see him round first base, they show a picture of the dugout, where you will find him holding a large hammer. It's tough to be at bat and on the bench.

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is out shopping for her dress and Pike is on his bike beside her, they stop to talk and have an argument.

Braindead picture

Factual error: As the Thug Zombie is on top of the lawnmower and is getting hacked to bits, his body parts don't fly off. E.g. his arms would've flow out everywhere when the blade reached his shoulders, and the same goes for his head.

The Cutting Edge picture

Factual error: During the movie, Doug watches video from the previous Olympic competition. The skaters are shown performing in a darkened arena lit by spotlights. Special lighting effects like this are not allowed in competition. All competitions take place in a brightly lit arena.

Honey I Blew Up the Kid picture

Factual error: The baby is expanded to approximately fifty times his height, width and girth but it's explicitly stated that he retains his orginal mass. This means he will have the same volume as one hundred and twenty five thousand babies of his original size, but will weigh the same as before he was enlarged! That child is going to weigh much less than the volume of air he displaces. He's going to float away.

The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag picture

Rebecca's Daughters picture

Factual error: Throughout the film, the drainpipes on the buildings are almost all plastic - the film is set in the Victorian era.

Add time

The Player picture

Continuity mistake: In the outdoor restaurant scene (where Tim Robbins has just spoken to Burt Reynolds), the waiter brings Tim Robbins a bottle of water and a wine goblet, but when he pours the entire bottle of water into the goblet, it's obvious that it was not a full bottle of water to begin with. It doesn't fill the glass of half way. A waiter would not serve an opened bottle of water to a diner.

Add time

Strictly Ballroom picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Scott and Fran are dancing on the roof and the camera is about to pan downwards towards the lower level, to the left of the clothes-line, someone's head is visible moving. It is a crew member sitting against the other side of the wall.

Hamster
The Distinguished Gentleman picture

Continuity mistake: When Eddie Murphy is on a duck hunting trip with a bunch of gun lobbyists, the lobbyists are firing their M16 rifles at a bunch of ducks that are flying by. You can clearly see them squeezing the trigger and not a single shell case is coming from the chamber of the gun. Also, when you fire a gun there is usually smoke from the muzzle but in the movie there is no smoke, yet you hear the sound of several guns firing.

Critters 4 picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Ethan is going into the space ship, one of the critters pursues him. We then can see a man's shadow on the ground, most likely the cameraman's shadow.
