Aladdin picture
Aladdin mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The tiger bites the seat off the suitor's trousers, allowing the viewer to see his polka-heart boxers. When we see the tiger in the courtyard, he has a part of the same boxer shorts in his mouth. So if he bit off the seat of the trousers, shouldn't he have purple cloth in his mouth?

Dracula picture

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Seward first goes to see Renfield, he gets bitten on the right side of his neck, but then grabs the left side as if in pain.

00:26:00

Singles picture

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. Then the shot changes to Debbie and back to Tim, but this time he doesn't have it. Then the shot changes to Debbie again and then back to Tim, and he reaches to his far right and picks it up.

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.

The Last of the Mohicans picture

Visible crew/equipment: At the surrender of the fort, as the English are marching out, the French general removers his hat. The English Commander, Monroe, says "The fort is yours, Monsieur". Look over his shoulder. In the distant valley you can see what are either two tourist busses or perhaps mobile catering vans.

01:05:40

The Bodyguard picture

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the end of the movie when Whitney Houston is in her hotel room with Kevin Costner you can see the mic in a reflection in the window of the suite.

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.

The Crying Game picture

Other mistake: When Fergus finds Jude in his apartment (the scene in which she has coloured her hair red), Jude unholsters her 38 cal. and one can distinctly hear her cock the hammer. At the end of the scene, she places the gun in her purse with the hammer uncocked.

Innocent Blood picture
Innocent Blood mistake picture

Revealing mistake: In the chase scene about an hour into the movie, Robert Loggia is shown entering the Liberty Tunnel, driving on a wet road. Note the vaulted round ceiling of the tunnel. Next, we see a series of shots of him in the tunnel, and then a shot of the sun rising over Pittsburgh as he is about to leave the tunnel. Here is the problem - the sunrise shot is taken from the Fort Pitt tunnel on a different day. Note the dry road, the barriers to the driver's left at the tunnel exit and the Fort Pitt bridge straight ahead. There is no place for the driver to make a left turn out of this tunnel. Also note that the POV is from the left lane. All the Liberty Tunnel shots show Loggia in the right lane. The next shot shows Loggia exiting the Liberty Tunnel and making a left turn from the right lane, causing a pile-up.

01:11:10 - 01:12:20

Kevin Hall
The Lawnmower Man picture

Visible crew/equipment: At the end when Dr. Angelo and Peter are escaping the blast, just after Angelo jumps down over the facility wall and calls for Peter to follow, for a second you can see someone holding the back of Peter's shirt to help him drop down, or it might be a rigging of some kind.

Memoirs of an Invisible Man picture

Revealing mistake: When Nick returns to his apartment (after being made invisible) he immediately closes the curtains. Although he is invisible, we should see the curtains pulled closed at the point that he grabs them with his hands. Instead we see them close from the top, revealing they were closed either by a crewman or an automated process. Note: The curtains are NOT meant to be automatic in the film as we see and hear him physically close them.

Jason Hoffman
Prelude to a Kiss picture

Factual error: The old man is supposed to have accidentally ended up at Rita and Peter's wedding by just "getting on a train," and finding himself in Lake Forest (a far northern suburb of Chicago.) But he started out in Berwyn (a western suburb), and in order to get to Lake Forest from Berwyn, you have to get on one train, get off in downtown Chicago, walk several blocks, and then get on an entirely different line going to Lake Forest. In other words, not something you can "accidentally" find yourself doing, but something you have to know where you are going in order to do.

Add time

Medicine Man picture

Continuity mistake: When Bronx go to sleep intoxicated (the night the medicine man paints on her face) she is wearing a shirt and panties, but when she wakes up she is wearing a pair of jeans.

Noises Off... picture

Continuity mistake: As Lloyd leaves the stage asking what the show will be without him, Poppy's standing in the middle of the stage. But in the next shot she is leaning against the proscenium.

Add time

Howards End picture

Factual error: Some characters are shown at Paddington Station and in the background the train shown at the platform is a 1920s Southern Railway green electric driving coach. Paddington at the time of the film was home to the Great Western Railway which never operated electric trains and never used green livery on carriages. Furthermore the carriage was issuing copious amounts of steam (accurate for the period and venue) but impossible from an electric train.

Add time

HouseSitter picture

Continuity mistake: When Gwen is in the house discussing "what happened in Maui" with Becky (Davis is there also), her sweater sleeves are pushed up by her elbows. After she finishes the story she leaves the house. In the next shot, Davis thanks Gwen for making up the story (they are outside of the house). Her sweater sleeves are now down around her wrists.

Plot hole: It was Lula's idea to initiate the fraud of using Buddy to replace Dusty at his show in Louisiana. But when Dusty finds out about the fraud, he threatens to sue Buddy - not Lula.
