Red 2 (2013)

Red 2 picture

Revealing mistake: When Han shoots at Bruce Willis and the others with the Gatling gun, we see cartridges on the ground. You can tell that they are all blanks. The tip is jagged and has been closed - live ammo just has an open hole where the bullet was.

Jacob La Cour
Bad Grandpa picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where grandpa is attempting to ship his grandson to his dad in a cardboard box, grandpa says to the two ladies who are objecting to his requests "well give me a pen, and we'll write FRAGILE on it." Shortly before he says that, the box already says "FRAGILE" on the right hand side, and then 2 seconds later the writing has disappeared.

Despicable Me 2 picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gru first meets Lucy Wilde, Gru takes out his freeze ray and fires it at Lucy. Lucy stops the freeze with a flame gun thing and then she walks over to him and tazes him. Gru then drops the freeze ray, but it disappears when she goes to put Gru in the boot of her car.

Casual Person
Pain & Gain picture

Factual error: The movie is set around 1995. But the SWAT team in the movie is wearing gear from the 2000s. (MICH-2000 helmet, modular tactical vest, M4 variant with picatinny rails and scope). Plus, in a scene when the guys are shopping for a taser (gun shop scene), some of the rifles on display are from 2000s era. AR-15 variants with variant stock, foregrip and picatinny rail. Those style of weapon system were unheard of in early 90s. Even Special Forces just adopted it by the late 90s.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty picture

Continuity mistake: When Walter Mitty is on the skateboard riding towards the Icelandic town, there is a shot of him riding along wearing Nike Frees, the camera then cuts to a close up of his shoes and the board, and the shoes in that shot have changed to Vans authentic.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Grug is chasing after Guy, they both wind up stuck in a tar pit. After successfully escaping they are covered in tar and Grug even gets himself stuck to Guy. In the next scene everyone is running from the exploding ground up between the mountains and both Grug and Guy are completely clean and free of tar.

The Wolf of Wall Street mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the very last scene in New Zealand when Jordan is giving a motivational speech, he approaches his first target in the audience and says 'Sell me this pen.' As he does so, he holds out a pen in his right hand. When we cut to the shot to the person's face, we see that the pen is in Jordan's left hand; this goes on and on with every person.

01:10:45

We're the Millers picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kenny feels he's been bit by a spider on his privates and run off the bus with everyone following after him. Kenny then pulls down his pants so they can look at it. Throughout these scenes, his pants are supposed to be pulled down. Right at the moment Kenny faints from the bite, you can see that his pants are pulled up and buttoned.

Vettey
The Hangover Part III picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Alan flirts with the store clerk, they share a lollipop. You can hear a "crunch" indicating that she chewed the lollipop. In the next shot, she takes the lollipop out of her mouth and it is still completely intact.

00:59:45

Saving Mr. Banks picture

Factual error: In the scene where the young Helen Goff is traveling by train with her family, it's obvious that an American engine and coaches have been used, instead of a Queensland Rail locomotive of the era. None of the QR locomotives had flared smokestacks like on the one seen in the movie. The coaches are also incorrect - as far as I know, none of the Queensland Rail wood coaches had clerestory roofs with a set of windows in them like seen in the movie. When Helen looks out the back of the train, it's also obvious that the tracks are spaced at 'standard gauge' (4' 8.5"). They should be closer together, as railways in Queensland are built to 3'6" gauge instead. There is also no such company as the 'Queensland Victoria Railway Co', as marked on the coaches, as all railways in Australia are state owned.

Continuity mistake: When Kantmiss is climbing the tree, the ladder leading up is almost vertical, but in the next shot as she reaches the top, the ladder now has a significant angle to it.

marshmallows

Continuity mistake: After the failed attempt to drop a mace on Mr. Ginormous' head, the giant grabs Jack, Tom, and Jerry and taunts them. He then throws them onto the table and Jack's hat comes off and flies away from him. Shot changes angle to Jack trying to sit up and pop off at Ginormous and suddenly his hat is right next to him.

Grudge Match picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Stallone gets hit by the UFC fighter, he doesn't see the hit coming because he gets hit from his right side. Later on, when driving his girlfriend home from the restaurant, he is still blind in his right eye and doesn't see the car coming from the right. However, during the Grudge Match, he is suddenly blind in his left eye.

Suggested correction: Clearly, he is blind in that eye. His trainer instructs him to stand to the left and keep Kid in his line of vision with his right eye.

Odd Thomas picture

Other mistake: When Odd Thomas and Stormy are riding on his moped through town to stop the massacre they pass a car dealership. All of the letters on the dealership signs are reversed except for a large lighted awning sign that says "Welcome to quality." The normal and reversed signs appear at the same time in the same frame.

R.I.P.D. picture

Continuity mistake: Bobby takes their red Charger and plows it through a locked gate. You see in the close up a lock on the chain, but it cuts to a further shot just as the car hits the gate and the lock is in a different position for the brief moment it can be seen.
