Suggested correction: Just watched Matinee again after reading this. I saw M1 carbines, M1919A4 and M2.50 cal machine guns and M14 rifles. There are no M16 series weapons in this movie.

Malice picture

Plot hole: Andy is interrogated by the detective after the latest rape, as evidence in this one points to him. Problem is, the cop mentions that all the victims had visited Andy's office before their attacks. In real life, with information like that, he would have been a suspect and subject to questioning from the very first incident.

Searching For Bobby Fischer picture

Deliberate mistake: Towards the end of the film, Josh is playing a game in the park with Vinnie, and Vinnie asks "What's that?", to which Josh replies "Schliemann Attack." However, this dialogue occurs while the game is still in standard opening theory and before Josh has played the move that introduces the Schliemann Attack (pawn to f5).

The Cover Girl Murders picture

Deliberate mistake: At the end of the film its revealed all the murders were a hoax and everyone was in on the plan to set up Rex (Lee Majors). Why then exactly were Rachel (Vanessa Angel) and Patrice (Adrian Paul) talking together and pretending like they were trying to find the killer. In one of the scenes Rachel believes she has caught a photo of one of the men who she thought might be a killer and is showing Patrice, but Rex wasn't anywhere around. Therefore why were they pretending to find a killer or keep up the illusion whilst Rex wasn't around?
