Sing (2016)

Sing picture

Plot hole: There's no way that Eddie and Nana left the flooded theater without getting a single drop of water on them. The water flooded up to the ceiling and there's no other way to exit besides the front doors, and Moon's secret exit, which also floods. They do not leave through either way.

Kung Fu Panda 3 picture

Plot hole: In Kung Fu Panda 2, Shen says he waited 30 years since he destroyed the Panda village, and Po was just a baby at the time. However, in Kung Fu Panda 3 Mr. Ping says he raised Po for 20 years before he told him he was adopted. (00:31:15)

Ice Age: Collision Course picture

Continuity mistake: In an early scene with Scrat on board the alien space ship, he accidentally increases the artificial gravity, and there is a control panel indicator with the word "GRAVITY" in English. In a later scene when the ship is out of control and a danger warning flashes in front of him, it's written in an alien language.

Other mistake: During the climax, when Junior reactivates the baby manufacturing machine, the first baby to emerge from the machine is naked. The machine's hands diaper this baby. However, when the other babies emerge from the machine they're already wearing diapers. (01:15:45 - 01:16:25)

Continuity mistake: When the Polar Council is talking with Mr. Greene about the condos in the Arctic being a ludicrous idea, Vera is standing almost beside him, but a couple of shots later, Vera is suddenly standing far behind him. (00:34:05)

Casual Person
Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life picture

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the movie, the principal puts on his hat which turns his hair green. But you can see the green paint has already been applied before he puts his hat on.

Monster Trucks picture

Factual error: When Tripp enters the garage and we see his truck in progress, he states that the truck will have 425 horsepower. The Hemi pulled out of the Terravex truck is not a 6.4L Hemi (only a 5.7L Hemi) and even if it was a 6.4, they only produced 410 horsepower in the heavy duty trucks. The 5.7L Hemi makes 375 horsepower in the trucks and 390 horsepower in the cars.

Batman: The Killing Joke picture

Continuity mistake: When Batman and Batgirl are about to have sex on the roof, Batman lets his left hand slip down from her back to her butt. In the next shot, it's on her back again.

Leap! (2016)

Leap! picture

Continuity mistake: Shortly after the start of the film, the heroine meets with the Mother Superior of the orphanage that she is staying at, and just behind her is the cockeyed supervisor, M. Luteau. During the scene he disappears abruptly to allow for a pan out of the property, far too fast for him to have merely walked away.

Other mistake: After Terrance shows the painting of Matilda and she runs off, if you keep an eye on Terrance as the screen pans upwards when there isn't a lot of his body left, he randomly disappears when the pigs appear in the shot.

Ratchet and Clank picture

Continuity mistake: In the first scene, the old alien man comes to pick up his spaceship and Ratchet instructs him to "Now, let's fire up that mag booster." The old alien pushes the switch forward to start the mag booster. Later in the movie, Ratchet flips the switch backwards to "engage mag booster" as Clank commands. (00:06:30 - 00:26:30)
