Charlie and the Chocolate Factory picture

Other mistake: In the beginning of the song about Augustus Gloop, computer generated Oompa Loompas can be seen running through the Chocolate Room, preparing to sing their song. In the DVD release, some Oompa Loompas can be seen running to places that no real person could possibly stand on. This mistake was later corrected in the Blu-Ray release.

Zathura picture

Herbie: Fully Loaded picture

Other mistake: When the NASCAR pit crew starts working on Herbie at the barn, they initially pull a bunch of parts and tools from their racetrack trailer. One man is carrying a distinctive VW-only wheel rim, which would definitely not fit their regular NASCAR car. The decision to race Herbie had just been made, so they would not have been carrying VW spare parts yet. Nor could they have pulled one of Herbie's wheels yet since they were still carrying the jack to the barn.

Madagascar picture Madagascar mistake picture

Other mistake: When Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are talking together inside the boxes, Alex has three holes in his box allowing light in for him. Melman, Marty and Gloria have that too, but Gloria's box is lying under Alex's and Marty's, so it can't get as much light - but it does.

Suggested correction: When we see the outsides of the box on the ship we can also see little gaps caused by wood planks nailed to the sides of the box so there should be a little light coming from in between to Gloria's box holes.

In the picture you can see light streaming in from the top despite a box being on top of it. That's the mistake.

Suggested correction: It's not shown anywhere how deep Gloria's box is, so it can easily be deeper than Alex's and Marty's and the holes can be further then their boxes reach.

In the scene after they fall off the boat, we see all 3 dimensions of Gloria's box, and it is indeed the same depth as all the others.

The boxes are all the same size so the mistake is valid.

Monster-in-Law picture

Other mistake: During the scene where Charlie is watching the horror movie on TV and Viola sneaks up behind her wearing the costume with the long finger nails and scares her. They show a shot from Viola's point of view and you see Charlie sitting on the couch from the back, but the TV is not on.

Corpse Bride picture

Other mistake: During the opening credits (right after the fish chopping shot) two bearded gentlemen meet in the street. As they part, Lord Barkis suddenly appears behind them. But where did he come from? He didn't walk in from either side, we would have seen him. Nor was there any door he might have come through.

The Pacifier picture

Other mistake: When Shane crashes the car through a fence (or wall), it appears that the car sustained absolutely no damage on the front (or anywhere else as far as I could tell). Later, there seemed to be very little damage to the car as a result of a chase scene where the car hit things, just a relatively minor scrape or two.

The Muppets' Wizard of Oz picture

Other mistake: When Dorthy is trying to audition for the Muppet's the man says they are gone and the Muppet's bus pulls up. If you look when the bus is pulling up there is no one in it, even the driver seat is empty. Then a few seconds after the bus stops Kermit and Miss. Piggy come walking out.

Guess Who picture

Other mistake: When Percy and Simon are driving to the hotel and it starts to rain, the rain is dripping downwards on the windshield. Normally when a car is driving the rain should be moving up (because of the wind).

Sahara picture

Other mistake: When the two heroes are wind riding the plane they more or less repaired (about 1 hour and 30 minutes from the beginning of the movie), the wind blows from the right side of the plane to the left, but the hero is counter balancing the plane on the left side as if the wind were coming from the left. He should be standing on the right side of the plane to really balance it.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: They are using the aileron and rudder to counter the effects of the wind and to provide forward momentum. The makeshift wing was placed on the right side of the roof meaning he would have to be floating in mid-air to be on the right side of the plane which is not feasible.

Yours, Mine and Ours picture

Other mistake: When the family goes to the hardware depot to obtain home improvement materials, the twins manage to imbed the tines of a fork lift into a display of bagged sand over the Admiral's shoulders, yet the entire contents of the ripped bags drizzle down higher, onto his head.

Fever Pitch picture Fever Pitch mistake picture

Other mistake: Near the end when Lindsey goes to Fenway to stop Ben from selling his tickets, she borrows binoculars from someone to find him across the field. She's looking through the wrong end. The way she's holding them, everything would look tiny, and yet she still sees him.
