John Ohman
Kingsman: The Secret Service picture

Factual error: When the barracks are completely flooded, Eggsy punches through a large two-way mirror to escape. The fact is that any glass (or plexiglas) thick enough to withstand many tons of water pressure without bursting would be as impenetrable as concrete to Eggsy's bare fist. He would need a chisel-tipped jackhammer to penetrate such a mirror.

Suggested correction: However, the room is designed as a test with solutions, one of which is breaking that glass. Hence the glass is not designed to safely hold the water, it's designed to barely be able to hold it and be breakable by the recruits.

No, you don't defy physics by making a containment barrier just strong enough to contain many tons of water but weak enough to be penetrated by a human fist.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles picture

Plot hole: When April O'Neil calls Vernon Fenwick (drives the channel 6 van), he answers his phone and immediately says "O'Neil". When the scene cuts back to O'Neil, we see she called from a payphone. Fenwick would have no way to know it was her calling.

Other mistake: At the beginning, when one bad guy is sitting on a bench with a newspaper, we can read the date October 21, 1959 at the top. But, we also read Nov 3 1970 on the same page, under the mugshot of the Boss being released from jail.

The Lego Movie picture

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Emmet drives to work, you get Emmet's view of the dashboard with his hand switching on the radio. The car at that moment has no front window, perhaps to make the car look bigger from the inside.
