Shrek (2001)

Shrek picture

Continuity mistake: Sometimes Shrek's front door opens outwards, at other times inwards, yet it can't be "two-way" because whenever it closes, it slams against the frame.

Cats & Dogs picture

Continuity mistake: As Buddy walks out into the street at the start of the movie when the cat is playing dead, you can see several parked cars on the street behind him. When the van backs up to 'catnap' buddy, there are no parked cars. Then as the van drives off again, there is a different bunch of parked cars in the street.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Dolittle is giving CPR to the bear, the bear is completely dry. If you just rescued something from the water, it should be wet.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: During the Quidditch match Harry's broomstick tries to shake him off, due to the spell. After Hermione tells Ron, "Leave it to me," in Harry's last close-up before he flips over, the seat that is attached to the broomstick, to make it more comfortable for Dan Radcliffe to sit on, is entirely visible. Glimpses of other seats can be had during the match as well.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire picture

Continuity mistake: In the beginning scenes, where Milo Thatch is practicing his proposal, he slides over (face forward, chest against the board) a chalk drawing of a map detailing the location of Atlantis. When he realises he wiped off the drawing, and sees it on his clothes, he stands in front of the blank part of the chalkboard, "filling in" the space with the map that rubbed off on his shirt - the only problem is, that the image should have rubbed off backwards as he was facing the board when it transferred to his clothes. He could not simply stand in the place of the missing map face forward and have it read properly.

Kingdom Come picture

Continuity mistake: When the family is at the funeral home and the audience can see the casket, it has a picture of angels riding up to heaven. It is very colourful and eye catching, but at the church during the actual funeral, the casket has all red cloth covering the inside of it.

On the Line picture

Plot hole: When the Chicago Post first runs the story on Kevin, there is a picture of him on the front page, next to the headline. So anyone who was following the story would have known what he looked like, which would make it impossible for Kevin's friends to get away with pretending to be him.

Holiday in the Sun picture

Other mistake: In the beginning, the girls arrive at the airport in Chicago and you can see a billboard in the background. Then the credits roll and they land in the sunny Bahamas and as they are driving away in the limo, the same billboard can be seen in the background. Guess they were on a tight budget and had to computer generate the snow over a scene filmed in the Bahamas.

Continuity mistake: There is a scene when a girl knocks on the door of the house of her friend. She opens and in the background you can see another girl doing nothing. The shot later she has disappeared.

See Spot Run picture

Other mistake: When Stephanie (the kid's mom) gets sprayed with mud by the bus, it is accelerating as much as it can in reverse. Why would it accelerate so much in reverse if it's trying to avoid falling down the hill?

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Mario walks out of the bus station to meet his auntie and cousin, he is holding 3 bags. 2 rucksacks and a sports bag. The sports bag is all black. When he arrives at his auntie's house, he takes his bags out of the trunk. The 2 rucksacks are the same, but the sports bag has gone from all black, to red and green.

Little Secrets picture

Continuity mistake: When Emily falls off the roof, one shot shows her falling with her back first and her legs together. Then the shot changes to her mom, and back to her, at which point her legs are further apart, she is angled more headfirst, and is still at the same height.
