Continuity mistake: When Ellie and Muldoon rescue Ian they leave him in Jeep 10 while they go looking for Alan and the kids, and after the closeup of the water filled T. Rex footprint showing an impact tremor, the next shot zooms in on Ian and we can see the driver's side-view mirror has no writing on it. When they're being chased by the T. Rex, in the shots from behind the Jeep we can see that both side-view mirrors have writing at the top and bottom (shown in closeup "objects in mirror are closer than they appear").Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When David pushes the pallets onto the car, it's obvious that there is no-one inside. Similarly, when he uses the forklift to pick up the car a few shots later, we see inside the car and there is only a badly constructed dummy-type object in the back seat, and no real people. Even if they had bent down, they should still be visible. (00:09:00)
Visible crew/equipment: After Phil drives the truck off the cliff, and it explodes in a burst of flames, there is a shot of Andie MacDowell and Chris Elliot staring in shock at the disaster. The two actors are bathed in an orange glow supposedly coming from the flaming wreckage. But in the lens of the TV camera Elliot is holding, there is a noticeable reflection of the lighting equipment used to create the glow effect on the actors. (01:04:15)
Visible crew/equipment: When Michelle is at the dinner she asks Topper for a light and strikes it on her leg. As she starts to move her leg, you can see the black strip on her leg to light the match. (00:27:30)
Continuity mistake: After Gromit runs away he starts looking at signs. In one shot, a blue sign goes over the one Gromit is reading (Room to Let), but in the next shot it's not. (00:12:20)
Continuity mistake: In the hotel scene where Gavin is murdered, after speaking w/Darby, he eats one of the chocolates on his pillow next to the night stand. He leaves the chocolates and the Westin card on the pillow/bed. Then when they show a shot of Gavin sitting on the bed brushing his teeth while Khamel hides in the closet waiting to murder him, the chocolates and the card are gone. Then, after Khamel murders Gavin, the chocolates and the card reappear back on the pillow as Khamel walks over and eats one. (00:59:55)Luna Negra
Continuity mistake: After Jack is blown out of the sky and is lying in the graveyard, he has several grey smudges on his face from the explosion. But in the very next shot, a birds-eye view of Jack lying across the angel, the smudges have disappeared. (00:59:10)
Revealing mistake: When the Hillards are at the pool, we see Stu, with his hairy chest, on the diving board. When the shot zooms out, we see a guy with no hair on his chest, who is obviously the stunt double.
Continuity mistake: When Pacino is talking to his old drug dealer friend at a table outside a cafe he has a bottle of beer in his hand. The bottle hops all over the place in the scene. One minute it's in his hand, then on the table, then he's taking a sip from it....without Al Pacino moving. (00:16:25)
Continuity mistake: When the parents are at the party, Dani and Max's mother puts her hands up while she is dancing and you can see her wedding ring in the shots facing her, but in the shots facing Dani the ring is gone. (00:55:20)
Revealing mistake: In the final scene when Annie and Sam are exiting the observation deck coming towards the elevators, the New York skyline backdrop which should be visible behind them is missing, and the entire sound stage wall can be seen beyond the observation deck safety railings instead. 'Although the exterior and lobby of the Empire State Building, 350 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street, are the real thing, a slightly larger replica of the Observation Deck was built in a hangar at Sand Point Naval Base on Puget Sound just northeast of - where else? - Seattle.' https://www.movie-locations.com/movies/s/Sleepless-In-Seattle.php. (01:39:35)
Continuity mistake: Kimble dives from the top of the dam when Gerard traps him in the tunnel. But in wide shots of Kimble falling, there's no tunnel above the dam. (The tunnel scenes were shot in Chicago, but the location sequences were done at Cheoah Dam in North Carolina - which has no tunnels.).Jean G
