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.

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.


A Dog's Purpose picture

Continuity mistake: When Bailey, or "buddy" first finds Hannah at his last life, Hannah says that he is not a stray because he has a collar. In the initial shot of the dog it does not have a collar on, but when she reaches to see the tag it appears.

Suggested correction: He does say hard right turn. It sounds a little like left due to the other noise but its definitely a right turn he says to make.

The Death of Stalin picture

Factual error: Beria was not executed until ten days after the funeral, not on the day.

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."

Psych: The Movie picture
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 picture

New this week Suggested correction: Regardless of how many controllers the console uses, it can take players one at a time or all of them at a time. It is not said there must be 5 players to finish the game, although it does make it easier.

The Disaster Artist picture

Factual error: In the movie, Sandy shows up at the premiere. In real life, Sandy did not come to the premiere as Tommy had not invited him due to incidents on set with Tommy's behaviour. Actor Kyle Vogt also did not come for similar reasons.

The Man Who Invented Christmas picture

New this week Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, during Lewis Carol's visit to America, you can hear them playing the melody from the song "The Yankee Doodle Boy" written by James Cohan in 1904. This was 64 years after the events in the movie. In the ending credits they cite this as "Yankee Doodle Dandy" which was written many years before. But, that was not the melody that was being played.

War Machine picture

Factual error: Before and during the Marines' arrival in Marjah, some of them are wearing Dust Goggles. These would've been first issued in World War II and continued into the early 2000s. The Battle for Marjah took place in 2010, by which point these goggles had been replaced by superior models such as ESS for some time.
