Casino Royale picture

Character mistake: When Bond is sending his resignation email, another email titled "Stationary Request" is visible in his outbox.

The Wicker Man picture

Character mistake: When Nicholas Cage bumps into the beehive, he sees the bees coming towards him and runs towards all the other beehives. Given that he bumped into the beehive on the outer edge, it would have been safer, quicker and much less risky to run back the way he came to escape than run towards all the other bee hives. To complicate things Cage knew he was severely allergic to bees.

Stick It picture

Character mistake: At the very beginning, when Haley is in court, the cop says that the property damage from the previous scene looks to be about $14,000.

The window couldn't be any more than $1000.
