Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle picture Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: The scene where Spencer throws the boomerang for the first time and misses the bikers they take off running. While they are running from the bikers, there is a shot right before the boomerang hits the bikers where you can see a camera man sitting in the bushes on the left side. You don't have to pause it, but can to see it better. (00:36:30)

American Made picture

Factual error: Barry Seal is taken with the guys of the drug-kartel in a yellow helicopter. There is an internet address on the side of the helicopter, half covered by the door, entirely inappropriate for the timeframe of the early 80's. (00:17:20)

The Hitman's Bodyguard picture

Factual error: Dutch police cars don't look like they do in the movie, with their blue and white checkerboard pattern. They had blue and orange diagonal stripes on the side. In this movie, they look much closer to what British police cars look like.

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.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri picture

Continuity mistake: When Mildred and her son pull up in the station wagon, there is a drink thrown at the car that hits the windshield. She gets out and confronts them, and then walks back to her car, with no evidence of anything having hit the windshield. It would be running down the glass and was a pretty thick substance. (00:59:00)

More Coco mistakes
Lady Bird picture

Other mistake: Lady Bird isn't finished talking about the present when the camera switches to the boy but in that shot her mouth isn't moving. Plus, right before that half her face is blocked out which sort of hides her realization face reaction. (00:17:05)

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. (00:56:20)

Casual Person

Daddy's Home 2 picture

Factual error: The tubing scene was filmed at Nashoba Valley in Westford, MA. The scene looking down from the top of the tubing run has a banner with the name of the ski area and the "mountains" in the background scene are photoshopped in.

Christmas Inheritance picture

Continuity mistake: During the drunken gymnastics young Miss Langford is doing to the delight of the paparazzi, she is wearing transparent pantyhose for the most part of the scene; you can see it during the cartwheels with the panty shot, and with the feet close-up. However her legs and feet are bare when the camera shows a stuntwoman leaping over the gifts and crashing into the tree (probably they didn't want to tear the stockings with that landing). (00:02:30 - 00:03:55)
