Gavin Jones
Adventureland picture

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past picture

Other mistake: At Paul's wedding, Paul gives a speech saying that Connor was always there for him, "ever since our parents died when I was 2 and Connor was 7". However, in the scene showing when Connor and Jenny were just kids and she gives him a camera for his birthday, Jenny and Connor appear to be at least 10 years old - certainly not 7. Connor tells his ghost, "that was the summer before my parents died". The scene that follows shows the parents funeral, with Paul sitting next to Connor, and Paul appears to be about 5 or 6 years old - but much older than 2.

I Love You Phillip Morris picture

Other mistake: In a scene toward the end of the film, there is a shot showing a calendar with the month March 1998. It shows Friday as being the 13th (reference to Philip Morris' birthday), but Saturday appears as the 15th. Did the actual month of March, 1998 not contain the 14th?

500 Days of Summer picture

Continuity mistake: Tom receives an e-mail from Summer on day (303). At the beginning of the movie we are told that Tom and Summer met on January 8, so day 303 should be November the 6th, but the e-mail says that it was sent on May 7th, which is day 120.

The Young Victoria picture

Factual error: Prince Albert was not really wounded in the assassination attempt depicted near the end of the film. Eyewitness accounts differed as to whether he pushed Victoria down to protect her or simply dived for cover himself, but neither of the two bullets fired struck either of them.

New in Town picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Lucy is a guest at Blanche's house for the meatloaf dinner, notice what everyone is wearing, the table, etc. At the end of the movie there is another meatloaf dinner scene at Blanche's house and every single thing is identical to the first meatloaf dinner scene. Everyone is wearing the exact same clothing, eating the exact same food, drinking the exact same beer and wine, etc, and the only difference is Lucy being out of the picture with an empty place setting at the table.

Continuity mistake: When the tour bus stops at Home Depot, the position of the front wheel changes between shots. Watch the lug nuts and 5 holes around the perimeter of the rim to see how the wheel rotates even though the bus didn't move.

Fame (2009)

Fame picture

Plot hole: Mr. Cranston asks Denise to be the accompanist for the school's production of "Chicago". This is an error. In the year 2009, in which the film is set, this would be impossible since the licensing company which has the theatrical rights for "Chicago" restricts the show from being produced (even by amateur groups and schools) anywhere in the greater New York area while there is an open-ended production running on Broadway.

The Private Lives of Pippa Lee picture

Continuity mistake: When Pippa wakes up Herb, he sits up and listens. From an angle behind he lays back to rest, but from a front angle he is still sitting up and doesn't lay back until some time later.
