Dead Man Walking picture

Factual error: Almost at the end of the film, Poncelet is marched to the death chamber, with Prejean's hand on his shoulder. They are led past an open door - which leads to the viewing room, where the witnesses will congregate. Some of them are already in the room. This is nonsense - it is inviting a bereaved relative to attack the condemned man. In fact the corridor to the death chamber goes nowhere near the witnesses' area, and Prejean would have had to have been escorted back through two guarded doors to reach it.

Miami Rhapsody picture

Continuity mistake: In a scene taking place in the nursing home where Antonio Banderas works, they are celebrating a resident's birthday. There's a record playing and everybody's shown clapping and smiling, enjoying the tune. At one point, Sarah Jessica Parker and Antonio Banderas are exchanging dialogue and the music stops. However, the resident in the backgroud hasn't noticed - she's still clapping along.

The Bridges of Madison County picture

Continuity mistake: Driving to the bridge the landscape (a farm with a red and a yellow house) in the background (behind Meryl Streep) is seen twice. And many of the houses seen through Meryl's truck window are modern, not old farm houses. (00:21:35 - 00:22:45)

Suggested correction: The flashback scenes are set in 1965. The houses seen in the background are either older farm houses or more modern ones consistent with mid-20th century architecture. In the Post WWII era, there was significant economic and population growth, along with increased construction (including in rural areas), with new homes being built in among older houses.

Richard III picture

Revealing mistake: After Richard has accepted that he will be king, he appears before a large assembly. Several of the soldiers standing by the walls are obviously plastic dummies. They have unnaturally smooth and blank facial features, and when you can see their hands, they are not grasping their guns, but merely holding their hands stiffly out with the gun between them.
