Bruce Almighty picture

Other mistake: Early in the film, Jim Carrey is watching TV during a sports segment. He is watching Channel 7, the station he works for. This clip they showed was of actual WKBW sports director John Murphy. The clip they showed was taken directly from a real WKBW newscast, with the authentic news set, and graphics. However, when they show a clip of Ch. 7 News later, there are completely different graphics, and a completely different news set, both made for the movie.

Daredevil picture

Other mistake: In the fight scene between Daredevil and Elektra, some of the sheets hanging to dry still have crease lines from taking them out of the package, meaning they have never been on a bed or ever laundered before, just bought for the movie and immediately hung up.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl picture

Other mistake: Pintel and Ragetti fire the chain link cannonball, and it hits the square rigged mast aboard Interceptor. There's a shot of two men falling from the top of the mast, just before Interceptor's mast crashes onto the Pearl. They are not part of Jack's crew, who are all accounted for aboard the Pearl later. The only one of Jack's crew to die is the Asian man, when he's stabbed by a pirate and falls overboard. Nor can they be Barbossa's crew, because they haven't boarded yet. (01:27:00)

Elf (2003)

Elf picture

Other mistake: When Buddy's brother is reading Santa's list he reads the newscaster's wish he looks and mutters something about letters meaning they were in alphabetical order. However when he is saying random names he does not turn the page and the names are not in alphabetical order. (01:23:00)

Suggested correction: After he says each name, it cuts to that person and their reaction. Most of which was done without going back to Michael. Therefore, we can't say he didn't turn the pages.

The Medallion picture

Other mistake: When Jackie meets the boss of the Interpol department in Ireland, he shows everyone some sketches, the child and then a man with a hat. If you watch the picture, it changes from a man with a hat to another man without a hat back to the man with the hat and once again back to the man without the hat. (00:22:10)

Other mistake: As they're chasing the giant fish and the ship is bouncing on the waves, we can see in some shots a major design flaw - the ship has no rudder.

The Haunted Mansion picture

Other mistake: This mistake happens in the scene introducing the four singing heads on the Australian release DVD. They start singing when Jim and the kids turn the corner. According to the subtitles, they sing "When the cryptos creak and the tombstones quake, spooks come out for a swinging wake..." The subtitles are supposed to read 'crypt doors', not the incomprehensible 'cryptos'. (00:47:40)

Underworld picture

Other mistake: When Selene's car plunges into the Danube, her car hit the bottom of the river on it's side (the passenger's side). When the camera closes up to the window of the car, you can see water flowing in from the roof of the car (as a result from the holes created by Lucian). It should flow (or at least accumulate) towards Michael's direction because of gravity but it did not. (00:29:45)

Brother Bear picture

Other mistake: At the end of the film, as Kenai walks up to Koda after he's been transformed back into a bear, Koda leaps on him in joy. If you look closely at Kenai's hind legs, there are a few frames of animation missing. His legs go from a standing to a sitting position instantly. It's barely noticeable (no pun intended).

Big Fish picture

Other mistake: When Will's mother steps into the bathtub where his father is already lying in, the camera switches between both persons and the water level (in relation to the bathtub edge) on each person's side is on a different height. Yet when both persons are shown, we can see that the bathtub edge is fully horizontal, so the water level should be the same on both sides. (01:25:00)

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King picture

Other mistake: After Gollum attacks Frodo and Sam on Mount Doom, Sam fights Gollum off with his sword. He then turns around and calls out for Frodo. There is a brief medium shot of Frodo scrambling up the mountain (at about 01:20:35 on disk 2 of special edition). If you look carefully in the background, you can see snow and running water in the background. This is common on Mt. Ruapehu, where the scene was shot, but a bit out of place on Mt. Doom. (01:20:35)
