Up (2009)

Up picture

Continuity mistake: When the house first becomes detaches from its foundation and becomes airborne, Russell is nowhere to be seen, although every angle of the house is shown, including underneath, the front porch and the back porch. He knocks on the door and tells Carl he chased a "snipe" under the porch - but he cannot be seen after liftoff and prior to knocking. The same thing happens near the end, when Dug claims to have hidden under the porch.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel picture

Continuity mistake: When Ian films the Chipettes during the sing-off, he says, "If you like what you see then call Ian Hawke." But when someone else plays the video back later, he says, "If you're interested, then call Ian Hawke."

Gavin Jones
Coraline picture

Revealing mistake: In the shot right before Coraline finds the hidden door for the first time, she says "Alright Little Me, where are you hiding?" and drops her notebook and pen on the floor. When the notebook and pen are falling, you can see the wires that were used to suspend them while they were being animated. It's a common stop motion technique, but these days they usually try to paint the wires out afterward. It's a pretty severe dutch angle though, and they're only visible for a few frames, so it's easy to miss.

Planet 51 picture

Revealing mistake: After Chuck steps on the toy duck, he looks up to see the alien family and their house behind them. However, there is no reflection of this on his visor, just an empty field and the trees beyond.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs picture

Other mistake: In the scene where the mayor is talking behind the chainlink fence, with Brent in the background eating Sardines, you can see as the mayor grabs the fence the fencewire is going through his thumbs. This is on both hands and easily visible.

Monsters vs Aliens picture

Factual error: Gallaxhar scans the galaxy to find the missing quantonium. The scanner zooms in on earth, showing it to be very close to the center of the galaxy. Earth is actually nowhere near the center of the galaxy; it's located much closer to the outer edge.

Fantastic Mr. Fox picture

Continuity mistake: After escaping Bean Annex on the motorcycle by going off the ramp, Kylie turns back, sees the wolf and does a double take, and tells Mr. Fox "don't turn around". But when everyone looks at the wolf in the next shot when the motorcycle has stopped, they're looking off to the side of the road, not behind them.

Mary and Max picture

Continuity mistake: When Mary first opens the phone book at the post office she lands on Finklestein but when she puts her finger on the name she chooses it as Hororwitz, even though she never turned the page again.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies picture

Continuity mistake: When Lex Luthor has his battle suit on and fighting Superman and Batman, the head and neck piece change dramatically and constantly. Sometimes the piece surrounds his head, leaving plenty of room and sometimes his head sticks out over the piece. And it's not a matter of angles, because in some shots, everything being the same, the side piece remains at ear level and his head is either above or below the head piece.
