Continuity mistake: When Reuben and Sandy are talking in the street after the play disaster, and Sandy is telling Reuben about the fake E! True Hollywood Story, Reuben's tie keeps changing. In one shot, the tie has a dimple and is in a full windsor knot, and in other shots, the tie has no dimple and appears to be in a half-windsor knot.
Factual error: In the scene that takes place in Ollie's office after the death of his wife, he is talking to Arthur Brickman who is sitting in front of a plaque for the band Songs:Ohia's album, "Ghost Tropic." We know that the scene is happening 7 years in the past, because Gertie is a baby. "Ghost Tropic" wasn't released until November of 2000.
Continuity mistake: When Princess Mia takes the chicken out of the basket and it gets loose, we see the chicken run away, followed by Princess Mia running after the chicken, and finally the palace guard falling amid a number of boxed, gift-wrapped presents. The only boxed presents that were visible in any of the previous shots were already on the floor and there were none anywhere close to the palace guard that he could have knocked down as he fell.Sheri Hartman
Continuity mistake: When Jesse and Celine are walking along, there is a man in a red shirt who is just getting ready to pass them (with the camera shot looking from their backs). The scene shifts to a frontal shot, but the man in the red shirt does not pass immediately as he should have. There is too long of a time gap before he finally appears in the shot and passes Jesse and Celine.Wayne C.
Continuity mistake: In a profile shot, Largeman and Sam sit close together in a bathtub talking about Largeman's mom. Largeman begins to tear up and when the film cuts to Sam saying "Largeman" we see she is suddenly leaning against the back of the tub. When it returns to the profile she is kneeling close to him again.
Factual error: When they show the Nelson Eddy song 'I Love You', the set/movie shown is Rose-Marie. But that number is from Rosalie not Rose-Marie. Two totally different movies - one set in West Point not with the Canadian Mounties. There are no Cole Porter songs in Rose-Marie, likewise there are no Mounties in Rosalie. Rose-Marie's music was by Harbach / Hammerstein II / Friml / Stothart. (01:09:25)
Plot hole: When Dan is chasing after Carter to catch him and Alex together at the restaurant, there's very little chance he could have had any idea where Carter was going. He couldn't have told the cab driver to "follow that taxi" because in the time between Carter getting in a cab and Dan getting in a cab about 5 taxis drive past, so how he happens to end up at the same place is a miracle.
Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the movie a hamburger is thrown in hopes that a dog will "fetch" it. When the dog does not do so the hamburger is retrieved twice, in perfect shape, to be thrown two more times. On each throw its various parts would have landed individually all over the place and not been throwable again.Wayne C.
Continuity mistake: When Passepartout and Fogg arrive at The Royal Academy of Science explaining about breaking the speed barrier, Lord Kelvin asks where his authorization is and mocks Fogg while laughing and lowering his right arm. When it cuts, his arm is back up to his stomach. (00:13:00)Mortug
Continuity mistake: When Jule has found her phone she calls for Jan but then Hardenberg arrives home and catches her. He then wrestles her to the floor, so Jan comes and beats him off her. However, as he wrestles with Jule, her black woollen hat falls off onto the floor. But after Jan beats him off her it is back on her head firmly. (01:02:00)Hamster
