Hollow Man picture

Deliberate mistake: Elizabeth Shue uses a drawer handle as an electromagnet. OK if it's really a magnetic material but lab furniture is generally made of aluminium or stainless steel which is not. There is no way that they would use an iron handle in a potentially wet, and hence corrosive, environment such as a freezer.

28 Days picture

Deliberate mistake: When the limo driven by Gwen (Sandra Bullock) runs over the white picket fencing it's not Sandra's face behind the wheel in the exterior shots. Also, when Gwen runs over the short white picket fencing, in the interior shot from the car the corner of an 'L' shape fence is being hit, then in the front exterior shot the end of a smaller fence is hit. This is cut from a longer sequence, the smaller fencing is seen way in the distance in the first shot. (00:07:45)

Carlo immediately bursts into Jack's room same gun drawn. When Jack jumps out the window Carlo begins firing and shoots another 15 times. There is no way the single clip in the gun Carlo uses could possibly fire 23 rounds.

The Skulls picture

Deliberate mistake: In the scene with all the coffins and new Skull "recruits", Lucas knocks on the unopened coffin and Caleb pops up. The next shot is a wider shot that shows everyone standing around Caleb's coffin, but the guy in the coffin is not the actor playing Caleb, but a stand-in.

The Patriot picture

Deliberate mistake: The Americans actually spoke with American accents, but these very new Americans were British in origin, and so they couldn't develop a new accent in such a short time. The Americans should still have British accents. This would have been confusing and is done for the viewer's benefit, but still a mistake.
