The Real McCoy picture

Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Kim Basinger's character has been paroled from prison and is taking a train from the Athens, GA to Atlanta, GA. First there is no commuter train from Athens to Atlanta and clearly this scene was shot inside a MARTA train, Atlanta's local transit system.

In the Name of the Father picture

Factual error: When the convictions are overturned, the defendants' solicitor, Gareth Pearce (played by Emma Thompson) is shown arguing their case in court. In England solicitors cannot appear in the higher courts, and in fact a barrister presented the case. However, the film is 'dramatically correct' because it was Gareth Pearce who got them freed, and the barrister in question is far too full of herself without having the honour of being portrayed by Emma T.

Audio problem: In the beginning, when the Blues are at the wedding and Jeff is taking the baby from Jane he says "Dance with me" but his lips don't match.

Nowhere to Run picture

Continuity mistake: During the final fight between Jean-Claude and the bad guy, they are both holding onto a shotgun. Initially the barrel of the gun is in J-C's left hand. But without either of them letting go of the gun, suddenly the gun switches end-for-end and the stock of the gun is in J-C's left hand. It looks like they probably re-filmed the last of the fight so the bad guy could use his right hand to hit J-C with the butt-end of the gun.

Continuity mistake: When Arnie and Jay arrive at their grandmother's candy store to stay with her, their Aunt Bella is making ice cream sundaes for them. Watch the whipped cream and cherries on top of both sundaes, they go from melted to fresh again between shots.
