Happy Gilmore picture

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie he is not taken onto the hockey team. After he is hustling at the driving range he goes to toughen up. As he is toughening up, Chubbs unplugs the machine. The kid tries it, but he never plugged it back in and the machine still manages to work. (00:15:10)

Space Jam picture

Continuity mistake: As paramedics inflate Jordan's assistant Stan Podolak following his lone bucket, the scoreboard shows the Monstars ahead 77-67 with 10 seconds remaining. Yet following his treatment and the surprise entrance of Bill Murray, the score has changed to 77-76 with no time having elapsed.

D3: The Mighty Ducks picture

Continuity mistake: After the first bash brother "strips" in the penalty box, the next time you see him (5 min later) you see him with all his pads on and everything. They never refer to the fact that he threw his pads into the crowd.

The Fan picture

Continuity mistake: At one point Snipes jumps into the ocean to save his son, and when it shows a close-up on his face, you can tell it's not him. It's a pretty weak stunt double.

Tin Cup picture

Other mistake: When Roy is about to hit the ball off the porta-potty, the TV commentator bets Romeo that he won't hit the shot onto the green. Roy's shot ends up on the fringe of the green, not on the putting surface itself (an important difference), but Dewey collects the bet.

Jerry Maguire picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Jerry arrives at the top star's house to make sure he's still staying with him, he arrives in an Eagle Vision car, but later leaves in a Pontiac Grand Prix.

Eddie picture

Continuity mistake: In one scene, in the middle of the movie, one of the older players is sitting in a chair near the basketball court, and he is wearing sweat pants, white ones I believe. He is then asked to come in to play by Eddie (Whoopi Goldberg). He then stands up. But in the next scene he is walking up to the other players on the basketball court taking off a light jacket, but no sweat pants.

When Saturday Comes picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Jimmy Muir is playing for Sheffield United against Manchester United, Annie and Ken stand up to cheer Jimmy on at what looks like a packed stadium. However, when they stand up, you can see dozens of empty seats behind them.

Visible crew/equipment: In various shots during the basketball scenes the camera zooms in on the cardboard cutout people that were used to make the Boston Garden appear more crowded.
