J. Edgar picture

Continuity mistake: J. Edgar takes his secretary-to-be on a date and tries to impress her by showing off his card system for cataloguing books in the Library of Congress. When he runs to the book shelves he brushes past an open book set up on a display stand - sitting on a sheet of glass. The glass moves when he touches it and hangs off the edge of the table. When he returns seconds later the glass is back in place, centered on the table. His date did not move; she was still standing where he left her a few feet away and they were the only two people in the Library.

The Grey picture

Factual error: The wolves in this movie must be some sort of mutant super wolf. North American Grey wolves are not lion sized killing machines. They are typically smaller, by weight, than an average German Shepherd.

Jesse Stone: Innocents Lost picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Deputy Rose Gammon approaches the car with the body of Cindy Van Alden in it, the position of the car changes between shots.

One Day picture

Factual error: During scenes set in the early Noughties (one of Dex and Emma talking on a rooftop at night, and another of Dex crossing the river on a bus), modern buildings are shown on the skyline, including the Heron Tower (2009), the tallest building in the City at the time of filming, but it didn't exist at the time the scene is set.

Carnage picture

Continuity mistake: When Alan is taunting Michael about selling door knobs and Michael's back is against the door frame to the dining room, the dining room is dark; both chandeliers are off. All four characters are in the living room but as Michael responds to Alan's taunts, the lights are on, even though no one entered that room and Michael's hands were in his pockets during the exchange.
