Kingsman: The Golden Circle picture

Factual error: The action takes place around the second half of June (either side of the Glastonbury festival weekend). At the beginning of the film leaving work early evening in time to get home for dinner, in the UK, it wouldn't be dark. Later on, there isn't that much snow in the Alps, especially below the tree line, at that time of year.

Suggested correction: The film is a satirical representation of the events, not a historical documentary. Zhukov isn't from northern England, the committee did not comically carry Stalin around his dacha and Melenkov never told anyone to kiss his "Russian ass."

Girls Trip picture

Visible crew/equipment: During the New Edition performance, the cameraman they were using for the close-up is visible in the middle of the stage behind Ronnie (center).

The Hitman's Bodyguard picture

Continuity mistake: The amount of damage to the car Kincaid is driving changes drastically between shots. Most noticeable right after he kills the motorcycle driver he does a jump and the hood and headlights break off. It cuts to the others running through the streets for a few seconds, then cuts back to him as he passes under a bridge - the front of the car is almost completely repaired as he is under the bridge, then changes back to damaged after he leaves.

Psych: The Movie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Shawn first holds up the jerky to distract the guard dog, he's holding the torch in his right hand and the bag of jerky in his left. We cut to a wider shot and the items have instantly switched hands.

Naked (2017)

Naked picture

Audio problem: When Rob starts accusing Benny of knowing what happened to him the previous night, Benny says that they just hung out and Rob says "Shut yo ass up" to Benny. The shot is focusing on Benny, with the camera behind Rob and his jaw does not move when he is saying the line.
