Best romance movie mistakes of 1994
Continuity mistake: When the evil king's female assistant is "turned into" Odette, and Prince Derek is dancing with her near the end, he puts the locket on her. The chain goes around her hair, and in the next shot, it's under her hair. They were dancing the whole time, so how could she or Derek have pulled her hair out of the chain?
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.
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
Deliberate mistake: At the elephant graveyard, little Simba claws Shenzi in the face. When Mufasa saves Simba from the hyenas, the cuts are gone, a few seconds later. [This was done intentionally, I'm sure, for two reasons. The first being, Disney doesn't let fresh scars linger on the screen too long. Secondly, during that same scene when Mufasa rescues Simba & Nala, he claws Banzai in the rear. To stress the point later in the movie, that severe scar is shown too, but only briefly, it too disappears because of reason 1. Still a "mistake", but there's why.]
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. Tanya and Nicole start fighting during the song, but when you cut back to Muriel and Rhonda, you can clearly see the girls still sitting there just watching.
Continuity mistake: Just after Samuel and Alfred say that they are going to enlist, Samuel has a weird looking face and notice Alfreds shoulder right behind him, then Susanna takes a few steps up the stairs very sad and Samuel walks a couple of meters towards her and then she leaves and then it switches to Samuel with the same funny looking face and Alfred is again right behind him.
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.
Continuity mistake: When Terry and Mike are at the Captain's table on the ship the magazine photographer is seen outside on the deck leaning against a pole waiting to take a pic of Mike with a girl. The camera angle changes to Mike's view of the window looking out and the photographer is now seen looking into the window with his camera trying to avoid Mike seeing him.
Visible crew/equipment: When Honora brings Pauline a tray of breakfast into her room, Honora gives her the tray then talks to her for a while. You can clearly see the face of a crewmember reflected in a window, and then after, you see the reflection of two hands holding the long pole of the boom mic!
Plot hole: When Lalaina is in her depressed "Bell Jar" phase, she's complaining to the psychic hotline counselor that she's freaked out by the idea of having kids because she "can't even take care of a Chia Pet". But earlier in her documentary, she'd talked about how starting at age 13 she had to become the responsible one, buying food, taking care of and parenting her siblings. Which contradicts the portrayal of her as someone who can't take care of anything.
