Best romance movie mistakes of 2006
Continuity mistake: When Ashley moves in with her two friends she breaks their bathroom mirror with a hairdryer. Later on in the movie, in the scene where her two friends are giving her a pep talk about luck, we see the same bathroom mirror in the background, which is now perfectly fine. Right after that, Ashley goes into the bathroom and looks at herself in the mirror, which has suddenly gone back to being broken.
Continuity mistake: When Madea is in the car coming back from court, Nikki smarts off at her and Madea turns around to hit on her. While this is going on, you hear brakes squealing and the driver is moving the wheel like the car is out of control. Yet, the background never changes, stays level throughout this scene.

Continuity mistake: Cecilia and Raymond are on the end of the dock and Raymond turns around and runs. Cecilia then says her line, turns around and runs. In the next shot the two girls are running towards the end of the dock. You can see Raymond running towards them but Cecilia is gone. She should be in the scene running the same way.
Revealing mistake: When the Bronco is underwater at the end of the movie, Claire's hands are tied to the steering wheel. Doug rips the steering wheel off. Anyone who has worked on cars knows you need a puller to get a steering wheel off. Also, the steering wheel is gone when Claire swims to the surface.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gray has just come in to see the mother of her dead fiance's son in the house, the boy is throwing things everywhere. He stops by the TV and begins to pull CDs from the shelves into the floor. He pulls all the CDs off the shelves, but every time it cuts back to him, there are plenty more CDs for him to pull down.
Deliberate mistake: At one point they use a Red Ryder BB gun (Yes, just like in A Christmas Story) and the guy says "You pumped it more than twice, didn't you" to his female counterpart when they shoot the bird. Red Ryder BB guns cannot be cocked/pumped more than once, due to the simple nature of the toy gun that it is.
Continuity mistake: When all of the dancers are preparing for the showcase dance, Nora walks in with hair that has her usual bounce. When she and Lucy are talking in front of the mirror, her hair is almost completely straight, sporting just a few slight waves. When Tyler approaches her backstage, her hair is extra curly. It has only been a few minutes, and there was not enough time for her to have curled it. This is confirmed in the commentary.
Continuity mistake: In the first 'Ice Age' Diego isn't afraid of water (in the beginning he chases the woman and the baby through the river before she jumps off the waterfall and never shows any fear) but in this one he suddenly is. It's not like that he is just afraid of swimming because in the second movie he shows fear anytime when he touches water.
Factual error: In the scene where Mark is describing to his friend, Josh, how he knew about the bet from the beginning, and how he foiled Andreas plan by disconnecting the camera, he states that he did this by unplugging the "Tv Feed," or RCA cable, from the camera. This would not stop the camera from recording as they state it does.

Factual error: When Izzy urges Tom to watch through the telescope on the rooftop, he just looks and sees the nebula. From space observations done by myself, I know that the earth rotation is so fast that even for this amount of time, a manual correction must be done to center the view again.
Continuity mistake: When Tom is showing his co-workers the video he shot of Wesley eating a hamburger, the video clip is actually of Wesley eating the first hamburger, which happened before Tom started filming him. You can see Tom's reflection in the window, and he's just sitting, not filming anything.
Audio problem: When Hilary Duff is in prison with the three ladies, she asks for something grainy to remove the make-up the women are wearing. The large lady says that she has an "egg roll or bagel in the bar" and to just give her a minute. But if you look closely at the lips, she says something else as to where the product is hidden.
Deliberate mistake: When Carrie is hiding in the locker room to record John talking with his friends, it's clear that her camera is behind the vent, and the openings in the vent are closer together then the diameter of her camera lens, however we don't see the vent slats in the camera view or the replaying of the video footage in a later scene. Not to mention the fact that she isn't holding the camera steady. This is impossible.
Continuity mistake: When Bullock is warning Reeves of the coming winter blizzard, she is looking through pictures that depicted her and her friends enjoying the snow. She then turns to the dog and asks "Remember that day? You were not happy". However it's revealed that both characters have the same dog, given to Bullock's boyfriend by Reeves, so when the snow happened in Reeves' time - 2004 - the dog was with him.
