Best movie mistakes of 2007

P.S. I Love You picture
P.S. I Love You mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Gerry gets smacked in the face by the 'broken' suspender clasp, we see the silver clasp land under the dresser. Yet, when he's moaning and lifting his leg to get onto the bed, we can actually see the clasp still intact on the front suspender that came loose, which is dangling right behind him (just look between his legs). Of course, in the next shot, that clasp is gone. Since the silver clasp is one of the plot points, this is bizarre to say the least.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix picture
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix mistake picture

Continuity mistake: There are two scenes during which Harry is shown having visions of the Dept of Mysteries while he is asleep. The first scene occurs after Harry's confrontation with Seamus in the Gryffindor common room. There are shots of Harry lying in bed wearing a short sleeve, crew neck tee shirt, but when he is startled awake by the vision of Voldemort, he sits up wearing a buttoned henley tee. The next day is the first day of Defence Against the Dark Arts class with Umbridge. That last shot of Harry in the henley tee shirt was cut from a later scene. Later in the film, when Harry has the vision of Arthur Weasley's attack, he is wearing the henley tee shirt.

Factual error: During the fight scene with Sandman in the armor car, the Terminal Tower can be seen in the background, which is a landmark in Cleveland, Ohio (where the scene was shot), not in New York city.

Ghost Rider picture

Revealing mistake: In the day following the Rider's first ride, Cage shows up at the street that has been burned down the center. A person very close to the beginning of that scene walks on the broken up rocks and it moves as if it were a pad or a sponge. It wasn't a rock moving because the street moves with the rock. It happens a couple of times during that scene.

Becoming Jane picture

Factual error: It's late 18th, possibly early 19th century and, as Jane and her sister walk along the beach, a construction crane is visible on the horizon.

Continuity mistake: At the start, Robert Neville drives into some yellow poles only to drive into them again in the following shot.

Hallowed Ground picture

Factual error: When the cop saves the girl from the mob of locals, his car tires squeal as he accelerates away, but the car is on loose dirt, which makes the squealing impossible.

Premonition picture

Continuity mistake: The beginning of the movie was set on Thursday, the day after Jim died, and Bridgette's face was just fine. Later in the movie, on Saturday, Bridgette was at the funeral with cuts and stitches on her face. Then, the movie goes back to Tuesday, the day before Jim died, and they show Bridgette running into the glass door and cutting her face. So if it happened on Tuesday, the first scene of the movie (Thursday) should have shown the cuts on her face.

Halloween picture

Other mistake: Michael kills the truck driver and takes his clothes. Everything fits him perfectly, despite Michael being taller and bigger than the other guy.

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

Suggested correction: This is incorrect, the truck driver's overalls look obviously baggy on him when shown wearing them, and although Michael is definitely taller than the truck driver within this remake, there's no doubt in my mind that they are about as big as each other in terms of shoulder width, body width. In reality it would fit Michael perfectly.

The Simpsons Movie picture

Continuity mistake: When "Emperor" Moe appears in front of Marge, after she and the kids return, the two cartridge belts swung over Moe's shoulders switch from his left over the right, to his right over the left.

Mr. Bean's Holiday picture
Mr. Bean's Holiday mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the security guard halts Mr Bean (dressed as a grandma) and the supposed kidnapped child, he is asked for his pass. Mr Bean hands the guard an already opened ID style flip card, but when the guard takes it, he is seen opening it as if it were closed.

Sweeney Todd picture

Other mistake: Based on the location of the barber's chair with the picture window in Todd's barber shop and the layout of the exterior of the building, there is no possible way that the chute behind the chair would be able to dump the bodies directly into the basement without going through the center of Ms. Lovett's shop.

The Hills Have Eyes 2 picture

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the film, just after the war exercise, when the Sergeant begins yelling at the recruits you can see the outline of his microphone under his T-Shirt. (It's not his dog tags because you can see the shape and dog tags are not shaped like that.)

Music and Lyrics mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Sophie and Alex are in the cafe the camera shows Alex from behind Sophie, and Sophie picks up a drink in the very next shot she has put it down. This happens throughout the scene in the cafe with her hands.

A Demon
Freedom Writers picture

Continuity mistake: When Miss Gruwell and the students are discussing junior year for the first time, she has her back turned and she is writing on the board. When she writes, "First Person Na", she turns around before finishing the last word, but in the next shot, "First Person Narrative" is written on the board.

Charlie Wilson's War picture

Other mistake: In Wilson's Congressional office, the Texas flag on his left is mounted upside down. The white panel belongs on the top of the flag, not the bottom.

Transformers picture

Deliberate mistake: When Frenzy attacks Sam, the teenager wears straight leg jeans with a narrow leg opening (not boot cut) and thick-soled Nikes, seen in numerous shots, as he kicks at the Decepticon. After the cut to Mikaela (who finds the reciprocating saw), during which Frenzy has already pulled off the bottom of Sam's jeans, Sam continues to kick and scream just before he gets up and runs. Problem is Sam still wears both thick-soled Nikes, neither of which slipped off as Frenzy maniacally pulled the jeans, with narrow leg openings, from his kicking legs/feet. Impossible even in the best of circumstances.

Saw IV (2007)

Saw IV picture

Other mistake: In Saw II, Jigsaw shares a story with Detective Matthews about how he attempted suicide after his cancer diagnosis by driving his car off a cliff. We then see Jigsaw pulling a metal rod out of the left side of his stomach. However, no puncture wound/scarring is visible on Jigsaw's stomach when his autopsy is being performed.

Aliens vs Predator: Requiem picture

Continuity mistake: The birth of the Predalien in this movie is completely different than it was in the first AVP. The lights on the table are different and the Predalien bursts out differently than in the first film.

Continuity mistake: Just as they start to sing "What Time Is It" the top of Troy's boxers are visible above his belt. He starts out wearing light colored boxers, which change to dark, then light, and again to dark colored boxers during this song.

Flight of Fury picture

Plot hole: The admiral receives the news of the stolen aircraft from the general over an open radio, with umpteen enlisted personnel within earshot. However, when the air group commander asks what the OP is about, the admiral tells him that it is on a need-to-know basis.

Underdog picture

Revealing mistake: Underdog's first costume is supposed to be a felted down (the more accurate term would be fulled) wool sweater. When wool is felted the stitches lose clear definition and usually achieve a "felted" look. It is clear that the sweater in the movie has just been switched for another smaller sweater as the stitches are still sharply defined after it has been pulled from the dryer. This is especially clear around the U. No attempt to make the smaller sweater look "felted" was made. This refers to the original costume with the solid white U, not the second costume with the yellow outlined U.

The Game Plan picture

Continuity mistake: When Joe gets injured and he insists the back-up quarterback goes in, he takes his wristband with all the plays on it off, so it can be given to the back-up. When the back-up quarterback is shown running on the field, he does not have it on, but when they show the back-up on the field, he does have the plays wristband on.

Hot Fuzz picture

Continuity mistake: Nick's character is eating an ice cream in the police car and eats the whole thing. When the shot changes to Simon's side, he's still got about half of it left.
