Best comedy movie mistakes of 2014
Continuity mistake: Towards the end when Debbie and Danny get into a fight around 5am at their apartment, Debbie packs some things and goes over to Joan's apartment to mull it over with her. While they're talking with Joan in her robe, Joan's hair goes from being up in a hairband (not even visible out of the hairband) to her hair being down and styled with no hairband at all and then back to up to not visible in the hairband again.
Factual error: When the barracks are completely flooded, several of the trainees shove shower hoses down the toilets for an "unlimited supply of air" (as Merlin explains moments later, describing it as "simple physics"). However, that old fireman's trick is a technique for surviving dense smoke, which is not under tons of pressure. In the barracks flooded 9 feet deep with water, the pressure would be so enormous that it would easily gush straight down the toilets in a powerful torrent, eliminating any "unlimited air supply."

Continuity mistake: Jen and Lauren are organizing a customer's clothes closet. Jen throws a pair of shoes onto a shelf and the shoes land askew. When Jen's cell phone rings and she answers the call, the shoes are neatly side by side. When she finishes the call and kneels down, the shoes are once again askew. When she stands up, the shoes are again side by side.
Continuity mistake: During the actual interview, when Kim Jong-un pulls the gun on Dave and starts taunting him, the scene shifts between several angles in which he is holding the gun normally, barrel above the hand, but then cuts to an angle in which he is holding the gun sideways in the "gangsta" style, with no gaps in between for him to have switched positions.
Continuity mistake: When Justin is disguised with the dread locks, one of the body guards gets into a fight with him. Justin is punched hard in the face in slow motion, the impact of the fist shown to hit below Justin's cheek on his jaw. Yet the next day Justin has a huge red mark above his cheek on his temple.

Continuity mistake: When Max is on the train, after finding out about the stitcher, he's next to a poster ad that has people in it. After the shot of the couple kissing, the poster ad has changed to just having words on it. The person standing next to the seats changes too, and then in the final shot is gone.
Factual error: About 20 minutes in, the group find a Welsh miners' group in the phone book. The character who is making the call speaks the first two digits of the phone number: "0, 1,..." The movie is set in 1984, when the dialling code for that district was "0639" In that year, "01" was the code for London, not Wales.
