Major League II picture

Revealing mistake: Signs for Baltimore based businesses are clearly visible in the stands, such as "Sheraton Inner Harbour" and various Baltimore banks.

True Lies picture

Factual error: There are a lot of comments about the Harrier (technically speaking it is an AV-8B, a slightly different aircraft) flown by Arnold Schwarzenegger, but everyone's missed the obvious one. The terrorist with the AK47 is unaware of the fact that a Harrier is hovering just outside the window until he slowly turns and see it there. He does a double take when he sees the Harrier just five metres away! A Harrier is an incredibly loud aircraft; you can hear them from three kilometers away. At that range the floor would shake with the noise and he would have been in no doubt whatever that he had been under attack for some time.

Dellamorte Dellamore picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Francesco and 'she' are in the cemetery together and the little blue flame-beings gather around to watch them, you can see the wires they're suspended on several times. This is most apparent when Francesco sees the first one (moments before seeing 'she' at the fountain) and also just before they are all frightened away.

00:17:30 - 00:20:40

Little Giants picture

Plot hole: In the Cowboys' last possession of the final game, Spike makes a long run before being stopped on the goal line. The Cowboys next play is a run up the middle. The Little Giants stop the run and the Cowboys lose possession, but since that was the first possession of a new set of downs, the Cowboys would have three more chances to score.

Ed Wood picture

Continuity mistake: When Ed is filming Bela Lugosi's last footage in front of his house, he is standing on the sidewalk, facing the house. From the camera's point of view there is a concrete walk leading to the porch, yet when there's a cut to the house's view, the walk is gone. It's just grass.

Add time

Maverick picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Spaniard is beating up all the guys that Maverick paid off he ties one guy's neck to a post with his whip. As the shot changes you see the whip go only around his neck, but in the last shot of the scene it's around neck and post again.

00:36:00

Beverly Hills Cop III picture

Deliberate mistake: Twice in this film Axel is shot at by multiple gunmen using automatic weapons at close range - and they all miss. In the Earthquake theme ride the bullets ricochet of the rails at Axel's feet. Why are they all aiming low? Why don't they raise their aim? In the park outside he hides behind a perfectly ordinary park bench and the bullets hit the wooden slats. Not one goes through the open spaces between them? I know bad guys can't shoot straight in the movies, but this is ridiculous ...

Swimming with Sharks picture

Continuity mistake: When Guy and Dawn are in his apartment and Guy is called into the office, he puts his jacket on. His collar goes from being turned up in the back to folded down from shot to shot.

Muriel's Wedding picture

Continuity mistake: The evening after Rhonda reveals to Tania that Nicole was having the affair with her husband, Muriel and Rhonda are playing Abba in a talent contest.

Junior (1994)

Junior picture

Other mistake: During the ride in the car, DeVito talked to another doctor at the hospital and stated that he only wanted three people in the room during the delivering of the baby. But when they get there, there are five people in the room, yet nobody reacts to that.

Add time

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The people present in the delivery room are Alex, Larry, Ned, Louise and an unnamed anesthesiologist. Yes, Larry stated he only wanted Ned and Louise to be the other people in the room, but Ned was concerned about doing a surgery without an anesthesiologist and it would have been too late to do anything about it when Larry gets Alex there.

Serial Mom picture

Continuity mistake: During the trial when Beverly is cross-examining Mrs. Ackerman, her neighbor, she asks if those were her scissors found sticking out of Mrs. Sterner's stomach. That's not where the scissors should have been found. After stabbing Mrs. Sterner with the scissors, Beverly pulled them out and threw them at the husband twice, both times they ended up sticking in the walls, and that is where the scissors would have been found when the police arrived.

Continuity mistake: After Jack's second horse never comes back, neither do Ben's shoes. Were they with the horse that we don't know what happened to?
