Best fantasy movie mistakes of 2005
Continuity mistake: On Utapau, when Obi-Wan faces off with Grievous, Grievous sends 4 magna guards at Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan force-pulls something from the ceiling to crush the droids. But in the ensuing fight between Obi-Wan and Grievous afterward, the ceiling thing and crushed droids are gone.
Visible crew/equipment: When Mrs. MacReady meets the Pevensie children at the train station, the reflector screen is reflected in the lenses of her glasses, as she looks down when she speaks to them. It is also visible when the children first arrive at the house, when Mrs. MacReady says, "There shall be no disturbing of the professor."
Factual error: In the scene in the glass elevator, when Mike Teavee wants to push a button, he presses the TV Room button. The elevator stops going down and immediately moves horizontally. The characters within the elevator are thrown against the wall from the sudden change. However, they are thrown against the wall that is in the direction the elevator is now moving, instead of the opposite wall as they should have been.
Continuity mistake: After Evangeline has left with Aunt Adelaide, Nanny McPhee enters the children's room, and as she and Chrissie walk to the bed they pass Eric's, Lily's and Tora's beds, with the bare wood floor at the center - there is no rug. However, when Nanny McPhee leaves their room the long red and white rug is at the center of the floor, between all the beds.
Continuity mistake: When Constantine manages to get the mirror through the window he falls on his back. To the right on the screen a chair lies on the floor beside a dresser. A few shots later when it cuts to Constantine getting up we can see the chair has changed position as its back now covers the opening of the dresser.
Continuity mistake: In the opening shot at the breakfast table, there is a large cereal box and a carton of milk on the right side of the table, in front of two salt-n-pepper shakers. But during the scene it continues to swap to an angle behind the two shakers - but now the cereal box and milk carton have vanished, so as not to block the view for this angled shot.
Continuity mistake: In the scene after the French General attempts to burn down the forest, Jacob throws the magical axe at the King's servant, who is attempting to kill him. The magical axe comes back and kills the servant. In the next scene, you see Jacob climbing the Tower, and on the ground you can see the axe, with no blood on it, and the body is nowhere to be seen.
Continuity mistake: When Jack is asking Isabel out on a date as they're standing by their trailers, he's very excited and walking backwards towards his trailer. His bicycle is behind him and it looks like he's just about to trip over it. When the camera cuts back to him, he's closer his trailer door and hasn't fallen over the bicycle, but it's not visible behind him anymore either.

Continuity mistake: When David and Elizabeth are trying to find the street address 425, it shows the numerals 425 on a porch with steps starting up from the left side, making a 90 degree turn to the left and continuing up more stairs. There is nothing on front face of porch but the numerals, boarding and stair railing. After Elizabeth says, "Not really" the camera cuts back to the porch and stairs but now there is a light fixture and a window or door on the front face. Then we see David going up stairs from the right side. But when we see them leaving, it appears that they come down stairs that look like the ones from the first scene.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny is walking out of the dirt bike stadium, he has his arms around two women's shoulders. The shot changes, now the two women are holding on to his arms. The shot changes again, and now his arms are free. It happens too fast for him to just let go of the women.
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.
Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Andre has dragged Angela from the river, towards the beginning of the film, the two engage in a lengthy conversation. As the camera moves between close-ups of Angela's face, and shots of Andre, where Angela is standing in the background, her hair keeps changing from being off her face to covering her face.
