Best movie mistake pictures of 1996
Continuity mistake: David calls Connie at the White House and she walks toward the divided pane windows, then pulls the curtain to the side. In the exterior shots facing her the pane's white grille is between her hand and face, but in the next interior shot looking out, there is only clear glass, though we should see the grille just as we see both sides of the curtain with her hand holding the right side.
Continuity mistake: When Nicolas Cage drives through the window in the yellow Ferrari and the shot changes, he is coming out from a different window than in the first shot. In the first shot he emerges from the window to the left of the 7th Street Garage storefront ('Classic Autos' written on the window), but next shot he emerges from the window to the storefront's right. Also, note the now glassless window to the storefront's left, due to a previous take.
Visible crew/equipment: Boom mic visible, reflected in Barb's motorbike helmet as she talks to Big Fatso.
Continuity mistake: When Matilda makes the chalk write the message on the blackboard, the writing changes. Watch the "Agatha," especially. The handwriting changes and the comma changes length, as well as most of the message changing. Also at the end of the message Matilda "writes" two long lines under it, which cross over. Yet later when Miss Trunchbull flies off the globe you can see there is just one line under the message, not two.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bill's fiance is driving over after the first tornado, when the truck lands, she swerves and she stops. As she is getting out, a camera is visible. When the camera backs up though, a crew-member pulling it back is visible in the door.
Revealing mistake: When Arnie jumps from the plane, notice the stunt double. He weighs about half of what Arnie would, and has no muscles.
Continuity mistake: When Abby is consoling Noelle, after she finds out that Roy is a loser, notice the magazine she throws after saying 'You are no longer allowed to read this destructive literature' ends up on Abby's lap at the end of the scene. She threw it on the floor earlier.
Continuity mistake: While Francis is sitting on his bed "getting his work done", he appears to be holding a magazine. When it changes to a frontal shot he is holding a legal pad.
Continuity mistake: In the hotel when the manager comes through the door, in the first shot the door is open, but the next time the door is closed.
Continuity mistake: As Beavis and Butt-head are dancing in the casino the floor is just flat and one surface. In the overhead shot of them dancing you can see part of the floor has changed to an tiled area instead of a plain flat surface. Also there are a number of people sitting at tables just in front of them whilst dancing. In the overhead shot they and the tables have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: In the scene with Sinbad and Howard in the radio place, Sinbad gets enraged, then throws the package (thought to be a bomb) and Howard hits the deck. The package lands at Howard's head, but in the next shot, it's way over to his left.
Continuity mistake: When Emma and Mr Knightley kiss for the first time near the end, they are both tilting their heads to the right when the camera angle is from Emma's perspective. Then, the instant the camera changes to Mr Knightley's perspective, they are suddenly tilting their heads to the left.
Other mistake: As Plisken escapes in the hijacked chopper, Quervo Jones picks up a bazooka and prepares to fire on it. As Fast Eddy shoots him through the chest, watch the bazooka. You can see right through the barrel. In other words, there is no ammo in the weapon.
