Despicable Me 2 picture

Plot hole: Lucy jumps from the airliner and flies her hang-glider straight to Eduardo/El Macho's Cinco de Mayo party to find Gru. How did she know Gru would be there? He had no intention of going and only did so after he was pestered into it by the girls on the very night of the party, so he couldn't have told her himself. Shouldn't she have gone to his house instead? (01:09:50)

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. (00:31:10 - 00:32:15)

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.

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.

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. (02:52:10)

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.

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.

Factual error: When Ron and Freddie have breakfast in the diner, Trivial Pursuit cards are seen on the table. The game was first sold in 1982, but the movie is set in 1980.
