Best romance movie mistakes of 2001

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.

Heartbreakers picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Page (Jennifer Love Hewitt) follows Jack onto the beach, and she falls over into the mud while clambering through the bushes, Jack finds her on the floor in the mud and helps her up. When she stands in front of him, she's clean, with no mud in sight.

America's Sweethearts picture

Continuity mistake: When they are driving to the hotel both the limos have tinted glass, but when they arrive at the hotel John Cusack's limo no longer has tinted glass - we clearly see him inside the car, although the camera's outside.

Dr. Dolittle 2 picture

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.

Shallow Hal picture
Shallow Hal mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Hal's co-workers bring him a cake for his promotion, Rosemary takes a slice out for herself. They change shots a couple times, and the size of the piece missing from the cake changes several times, and the layers of the cake change as well.

New this month Suggested correction: This is deliberate. When we see the cake with a large slice taken out of it, we're seeing it as it really is, as Rosemary has taken a large piece. When we see the cake with only a small slice taken out of it, we're looking at the cake from Hal's perspective.

There is no indication we're seeing it from "Hal's perspective." Hal even mentioned "where does she put it", meaning he knows she took a big piece. In addition, the smaller piece missing is still a pretty big piece and the large missing piece is seen after Rosemary left and then the smaller piece is seen, both times from Hal's point of view. So for this assumption to be valid, the missing piece should be considerably smaller from Hal's point of view and seen immediately after Rosemary left when Hal looks at back at it.

The Musketeer picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene just before the final attack on the castle, D'Artangan is surrounded by his fellow Musketeers. He gets off his horse and while doing so there is a tight close up where you see clearly that he is wearing his Musketeer outfit that he threw down on the floor in the previous scene. When he finishes talking to the horse (and he is back in his normal clothes) Porthos hands him the Musketeer uniform, which D'Artangan then puts on.

Save the Last Dance picture

Factual error: During the movie's opening credits, Sara is shown auditioning for Juilliard, which is misspelled as "Julliard" on a sign outside the room where the audition is occurring.

Add time

Pearl Harbor picture

Factual error: In every photo or drawing I have seen of the Oklahoma or Arizona, their main guns had no flash suppressors as depicted. The main rifles were sealed with tampions in port, and those would be impossible to fit into the muzzles shown in the movie.

Moulin Rouge picture

Continuity mistake: After Harry Zidler first sees Christian and Satine kissing, when they stop kissing, Satine's lipstick switches from being smeared to perfectly done and bright red when she walks and when Zidler is talking to her about having to end the infatuation.

Say It Isn't So picture

Continuity mistake: When Jo's mother and father are in the garden at Jack's house, she gets in her car with curly hair. The next scene shows her driving her car with straight hair.

Add time

Sweet November picture

Continuity mistake: Watch the first kiss scene between Reeves and Theron. Keanu's shirt drops to the floor, yet you can clearly see it on his shoulder in every other shot. The camera switches angles multiple times, so this is easy to spot.

Add time

Joe Somebody picture

Continuity mistake: After Joe picks his daughter up from her mother's, they drive into Minneapolis. While Joe is talking to his daughter, you can see Macaroni Grill and Galyns out the window as they drive past. After a quick shot of the daughter, when the camera is back on Joe, if you look out the car window again, they are passing the same establishments.

The Princess Diaries picture

Continuity mistake: At the big dinner, the Grandma tries to show the Japanese man some pictures and he shakes his head as he eats his green soup. A minute later, they serve the green soup.

Add time

Serendipity picture

Continuity mistake: In one of the ice skating rink scenes, the camera looks at John Cusack and there is no snow falling. It then cuts to Kate Beckinsale and it is snowing heavily.

xx:xx:xx

A Knight's Tale picture

Continuity mistake: On the jousting scene where William loses his helmet, he has a monstrous bruise under his right eye (in the late afternoon). That night at the banquet, there is no trace of the bruise. So far as I know, even a black eye doesn't completely heal that quickly.

Amelie (2001)

Amelie picture

Factual error: The film is set in 1997. There is a scene where Amelie knocks on a house door and in the background is a new model VW Beetle. These weren't available until early 1998. You can also see several scenes with various new models of Fiat Punto and VW Golf which weren't available until 1999.

Monster's Ball picture

Factual error: Billy Bob Thorton wore a uniform with a Louisiana state patch on it. All of the cars have Georgia license plates.

Saving Silverman picture

Other mistake: When Judith is locked in J.D. and Wayne's basement, she is first wearing a long night gown and she is chained at the ankle to an engine. Then she is given a box of clothes to use and she is next seen wearing shorts - how did she put them on if she was chained at the ankle?

Angel Eyes picture

Continuity mistake: Her bruise from being shot in the vest appears and disappears and reappears.

Winning London picture

Other mistake: When they are playing polo on the field one guy scores a goal then when Mary-Kate scores the goal it is the same shot - the guy on the horse is in the same place during both shots.

Add time

Down to Earth picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene just before Lance Barton gets crushed by a bus, they show the character of Keys, waiting nearby disguised as a homeless man, waiting for the accident to happen. However, there was no reason for him to disguise himself in the first place as nobody on earth could see him anyway. In all the other scenes, just before somebody dies, he wears the same clothes (his heavenly uniform.)

Add time

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.

Add time

Joe Dirt picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Joe finds his parents, when they are sitting in their trailer talking, his parents have a stuffed clown between them. Just before Joe asks them if there ever was a time when they'd be staring at the moon, the clown is slumped forward with its face not visible. In the next shot, when his mom starts her sales pitch about having clowns for sale, the clown is now standing upright between them.

Add time

Good Advice picture

Factual error: This movie is set in New York. In the beginning of the movie, Ryan (Charlie Sheen) is working as a stock broker and is at work in a high rise office building. Library Tower is clearly visible through the window. This is the tallest building in California. Imagine if the Empire State Building was visible in a movie set in LA.

Glitter picture
Glitter mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mariah, is on the "not a date" with Dice, and they're having dinner, they start to talk and in the different shots you see that the amount of wine in the glasses changes in every shot.

Add time

Original Sin picture

Continuity mistake: When Varga (Banderas) finds Bonny (Jolie) at Havana, he goes in her room and they finally make love. Later the Colonel that is in love with Bonny comes and Varga shows up at the door naked. When the camera is in front of Banderas he has his hand crossed in front of him all the time, but every time the camera shoots from behind him his hands are by his sides.
