Best romance movie mistakes of 2010
Continuity mistake: After being chased by soldiers after talking to his uncle, Dastan gets into a swordfight with Garsiv. As soon as it starts, Garsiv hits a pillar with his weapon knocking a significantly large chunk and a another smaller chunk out of it. In the immediate shot, the size and locations of the two chunks differ.
Continuity mistake: Just before Flynn cuts off Rapunzel's hair, there is a shot from behind him and he reaches up with his right hand to push her hair behind her ear. His arm is visible up to his forearm and the shackle is nowhere in sight. However, in the next, wide shot, the shackle is suddenly up around his wrist.
Continuity mistake: In one of the final scenes of the movie, George Lopez and his wife are depicted on swings with two red wines placed on a table. The scene transitions into another couple and later George Lopez and his wife are shown again. This time they toast and drink the wine on their swings. However, in this scene the wine they are drinking is white.
Continuity mistake: When Ally comes home and fights with her father after getting drunk and staying out all night, the strap of her white top is hanging down at her shoulder, but as the shot changes it moves up on her shoulder without Ally moving it. This changes constantly throughout the scene.
Continuity mistake: During the scene by Kirk's parents pool, Kirk is begging his brother not to embarrass him. Dylan turns to put his back against the side of the pool and his left elbow knocks over a beer can. In the next shot, behind Dylan, he is between two upright beer cans.
Continuity mistake: When Reese Wither-spoon is wearing the red dress going to Owen Wilson's place, there are only the crossover straps of the dress. After she sleeps with Owen Wilson, she puts on a red slip, which has shoe string straps, and then the dress with the cross over straps over the red slip. When she's seen walking the cross over straps and shoestring straps are visible. However, at the next scene, she's no longer wearing the red slip under the red dress as only the cross over straps of the red dress are visible.
Continuity mistake: Just before Declan and Anna are going to sleep in the B&B, when she agrees he can sleep in the same bed he is holding a pillow. He then puts the pillow on the bed and the pattern on his and hers pillows are on the left side, however the next scene shows that his pillow pattern is on the right.
Factual error: In the scene when they are leaving the Pittsburgh Zoo, the sign indicates to turn right for Interstate 79. However Intestate 79 is about 15 miles to the west of the zoo. Also, it is suggested that Interstate 79 is the turnpike (a tolled road), when actually Interstate 76 is the turnpike and Interstate 79 is not tolled.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Leslie dumps ice on Scott, the sheets change position between shots. When Leslie first walks into the room, Scott is lying on his back but slightly on his side with the sheets somewhat messy. The next shot, right before she throws the ice, Scott is now lying perfectly on his back with the sheets perfectly folded beneath his arms. Then, after she throws the ice the second time, Scott is soaked in water along with the sheets. The next shot shows Scott and the sheets dry as a bone.
Factual error: There's a scene where a woman's son and Kahn are playing on an Xbox. The movie was set around the time when 9/11 happened and the console was not even released at that time. You can tell from the controller they were using. It was white and had a battery underneath for wireless gaming.
Continuity mistake: When Abby slaughters the bullies, we see most of the scene from Owen's underwater point of view. First, a decapitated head floats down, leaving a trail of blood. Then, more dismembered bodies splash into the water. We get the sense that the pool water around Owen should be pretty bloody. Yet, when he surfaces, the water around him is completely clear, with no evidence of any blood or bodies.
Factual error: Close to the end of the film Michael Reed is traveling from Philadelphia to New York City by train early in the morning. The sun shines on his face from left side which is impossible in the morning, as the left side of his face faces west during that direction of travel (from south to north).
