Summer's End picture

Continuity mistake: The boys go out in their boat to water ski, only to find that Jones has built a huge dock that blocks their way. No matter. The boat does not contain skis nor a tow-rope anyway....

Baby Geniuses picture

Continuity mistake: When Sly is in the attic, and the fake power dude comes up to kidnap him, Sly uses a ski to "hit him in the gonads". But if you look closely at his face, the guy who was hit in the nuts wasn't the same guy that fell down the stairs.

Tarzan picture

Deliberate mistake: When Tarzan fights with the leopard, it scratches his chest. However after they fall into the pit and Tarzan comes out carrying the dead leopard, the scratches on his chest have amazingly healed. [It is a long-standing Disney tradition that no evidence of violence is shown on screen. Still a mistake, but there's why].

Toy Story 2 picture
Toy Story 2 mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: When the characters are crossing the street to get to the toy store, Mr. Potato Head gets his foot stuck on some gum. From the first angle, the gum is at the half way point of the rolling cement drainage pipe. When he barely escapes, the gum is near the lip of the pipe, a foot or so from the end. As the gum sticks to the passing pipe, it appears to be half way between those two points.

October Sky picture

Revealing mistake: When Homer placed the rocket on his fence and lit it his friend asked "Should we get behind somethin'?" That's when the rocket explodes. When you see them fly back you don't need to slow motion it because you can clearly see the wires attached to their backs.

Johnny Tsunami picture

Continuity mistake: When Sam and the other girl fall down the mountain, at one shot Sam unlocks the girls snowboard and it drops down the mountain but at one shot before the ski patrol throws the rope down to them you can see (for a second) on the right side of the girl, the corner of the snow board. Then she doesn't have it.

Inspector Gadget picture

Continuity mistake: When Sikes is put into the headpiece and Claw has the power turned up full force the chin strap is first around Sikes's chin, then it isn't, then it is.

The Iron Giant picture

Continuity mistake: When the Iron Giant follows Hogarth home they cross a railwayline and the Giant starts to eat the steel rail. During this scene you can see the distance of the railway sleepers changing from a fair distance apart to close together over the course of the shots. In the same scene you can also see that, although there is a crossing with lights, no vehicle could possibly pass as the rail has no crossover facility at that level.

Pokemon: The Movie 2000 picture

Factual error: In the opening short "Pikachu's Rescue Adventure" in the Bellossom song and dance scene a Poliwhirl calls itself a Poliwrath. This is obviously a mistake because of the body differences between the Pokemon.

Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost picture

Plot hole: Sarah Ravencroft's ghost causes a turkey to grow really big. When Thorn casts the spell to imprison Sarah again, the spell also causes Sarah's magic spells to be reversed. After Sarah is imprisoned, the turkey is still super big.

Stuart Little picture

Factual error: When the police arrive at the Little house to take the "missing person" report, their car has a blue light on top. Police in New York display red lights.

Dudley Do Right picture

Revealing mistake: When Whiplash is in the cave and Dudley comes and checks it out, the cave falls in. You can see a black curtain fall down while the screen goes black.

Muppets From Space picture

Other mistake: When the agent shows the spiral for the pattern of the messages, the spiral goes through South America and America. But the agent, before, showed two messages that aren't in the pattern; one in England (Stonehenge), the other in Cairo, Egypt.

Continuity mistake: When Frances goes to the park to see Larry, he is playing basketball. After Frances stops him Larry is holding the basketball on his side, when the shot is behind him, and when it shows him from the front he is holding the basketball in front of him.

Alvin and the Chipmunks meet Frankenstein picture

Continuity mistake: When singing the song about what they would do if the monster came to their room in the night, Simon puts on Alvin's duvet/blanket as a cape. It then shows an imagination sequence where the blanket is a correctly sized cape to fit him. When it returns to the real world, the 'cape' is the size of his imaginary cape, nowhere near the size of the bed.

Annie (1999)

Continuity mistake: When Miss Hannigan, Rooster and Lily are singing "Easy Street" outside in the street, Miss Hannigan beats her fur shawl on the ground, and a large piece of fur falls off it. In the next shot, this piece isn't lying on the ground anymore.

Genius (1999)

Factual error: The way that Charlie makes the skeleton move is way too complex to be controlled merely by a basic remote controller (which looks like it was originally for an RC car of some sort), which can only control up, down, left and right.

Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century picture

Plot hole: It is laughably implausible that a young child would be able to engineer a space walk on a space station, as Zenon does. Even with the friend getting his dad's access codes, something that like would be well under guard and key, and monitored heavily.
