How to Train Your Dragon picture

Plot hole: When Astrid gets on Toothless for the first time, Toothless takes off uncontrollably and tries to scare her. Hiccup seems to have no control over him at this time. How is that so if with the new tail fin, Toothless cannot fly without Hiccup's precise control of the tail fin? That whole sequence would have fallen apart. This mistake was even admitted to on the DVD Commentary.

The Tourist picture

Continuity mistake: On the inspector's boat Frank's wrists are handcuffed together with a railing between his arms to secure him in place. There is a very short chain between the cuffs, 4 to 5 inches at most. When he's pulled free by a rope from Elise's boat he starts 'climbing' the rope hand over hand. In one shot his hands are over a foot apart, he's obviously not wearing the handcuffs. When he gets onto Elise's boat his hands are cuffed once again, she shows him how to pick the locks to get the cuffs off.

Other mistake: During the heist of the armoured car, The Losers detonate the explosive device on one of the black SUV's and it then blows up and rises up vertically. The problem with this is the explosive device was attached to the side of the SUV, and it really should have blown it sideways and up, not just vertical.

Due Date picture

Factual error: When Ethan is driving through Texas while Peter is sleeping; the camera shows a Texas Highway traffic marker that reads: "Dallas 36 Miles." In the same camera shot, we see mountainous terrain in the background; followed by additional camera shots that show more mountainous terrain as they travel on the highway before crashing off the overpass. The problem is that there is no mountainous terrain 36 miles outside of Dallas, Texas; it's pretty much flatland.
