Donovan's Echo picture

Revealing mistake: When Donovan witnesses a fatal traffic accident on a rainy night, he suffers a mild heart attack and collapses in the street. Although he's lying on his back, unprotected from the downpour, surrounded by rain striking the pavement in both foreground and background, closeups show that no rain strikes his face, his felt hat, or his clothing. (00:12:20 - 00:12:50)

We Have a Pope picture

Continuity mistake: The designated Pope has just been visited by a physician. Three cardinals want to take a stroll outside for some sweets and arts. One of the cardinals stands and rebukes them; you can see that the cross on his chest has its chain caught in a button of the vest. During the rest of the scene the chain is caught in that button in the closer views and is loose in the wider angles. (00:23:50)

The Snowtown Murders picture

Visible crew/equipment: During the torture and murder of Troy there is a moment when Jamie, unable to watch the violence, sits in the kitchen with accomplice Mark Haydon. Jamie and Mark sit in silence at the kitchen table and the film cuts between close-ups of them. In the two close-up's of Mark you can see the boom microphone reflected in the glass of the kitchen cabinet near his head. This happens twice and the microphone lingers both times. (01:15:29)

Albert Nobbs picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the kitchen when Helen is telling Joe that she is pregnant, Joe is wearing suspenders over his shoulders.

Have a Little Faith picture

Factual error: When Mitch Albom is with Rabbi Albert Lewis in his rabbinical office/study they discuss an empty folder on the rabbi's bookcase labeled "God". Religious Jews as this rabbi was, know not to spell out the deity's name, but write it as "G-d" instead.

Rosewood Lane picture

Other mistake: In the hospital, Barrett had his right arm in a sling and his lower left leg in a cast. When the police/ detectives were trying to find Barrett, one detective said Barrett could not have driven himself somewhere because he had "a cast on his leg." The cast was on the left leg, so Barrett could have driven using his right leg, as usual. Maybe he couldn't have driven with a cast on his right arm, but the detective gave the wrong location of the leg cast. (00:50:30 - 01:13:45)
