Outside the Wire picture

Factual error: Lt. Harp is told by Capt. Leo that the Lieutenant has 56,000h of UAV flying time, That is ridiculous. Even seasoned pilots of the Military Airlift Command do not have that many hours. Drone pilots can fly up to 1,800 hours a year, and Harp hasn't been flying drones for 31 years straight.

Being the Ricardos picture

Other mistake: The scenery in the "I Love Lucy" on-stage scenes shows the Ricardos' apartment with a living room window. That was the apartment they moved into after Little Ricky was born. Before that, they lived in an apartment with no (visible) window in the living room.

The Matrix Resurrections picture

Plot hole: Considering how important it is to the Analyst that Neo stay connected to the Matrix at all times, it is unfathomable that his body in the real world is unguarded. While keeping an eye on him inside the Matrix at all times is difficult, there is no reason whatsoever that he should be left alone inside his pod with no security for even a second. This is an entirely different scenario than the original 3 films where resistance fighters finding Neo was integral to the machine's plans.

Wrath of Man picture

Other mistake: The driver tells his partner that his firearm is empty, and he has no bullets in it. In the beginning he was given a loaner firearm until he could purchase his own. He's been with the company for a while now so that makes no sense. Also, for a trained professional who killed six robbers with precise accuracy it's hard to fathom he would not notice his gun weighing less. A loaded Glock 17 weighs 8.5 ounces heavier than an empty one. Plus the guards carry spare magazines, where are his? (01:20:00 - 01:22:30)

Willy's Wonderland picture

Continuity mistake: The duct tape placed over the cut on the Janitor's left cheek is inconsistent in appearance many times. Initially, the piece of duct tape torn off the roll has a small piece missing on the lower right-hand corner that isn't there afterwards. Sometimes the lower edge of the duct tape is rippled (wavy), other times it is flush with the skin. (00:23:11 - 00:27:11)

Risen picture

Other mistake: Soldiers are shown wearing camouflage BDUs. They have an American flag sewn on their right sleeve. But the flag is of the wrong type. When a flag is worn on the right sleeve, the field of stars faces the front. In this scene their flags have the field of stars to the rear. Those flags are meant to be worn on the left sleeve. It is a tradition that dates back to the 1860s. (00:57:33)

Operation Mincemeat picture

Factual error: When Fleming salutes Cholmondeley and Montague, they return the compliment whilst not wearing their headdress. Members of the British armed forces never salute if they are not wearing a hat, instead they would stand to attention.

CODA picture

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the film Ruby says goodbye to her family and gets in the car to head to college. The car pulls away from her home and drives for about 5 seconds when Ruby yells "stop the car". She exits the car which is positioned nearly exactly where it was when they started on the families' property.

The Tomorrow War picture

Plot hole: Dan returns from the future with a vial of toxins with him that can kill all the white spikes. He tells somebody to start mass-producing it but this information is not spread across governments or even made public, but it is the one thing they have that can prevent humanity's extinction and making people aware of that will stop the rioting.

Red Notice picture

Factual error: Dwayne Johnson is pursuing a thief. He gets into a Porsche Taycan and pushed the start button, and he can drive off. But you have to have the key fob in your pocket or bag. Porsche explains: "As long as your key is close when you grab the door handle, the system automatically checks the encrypted access code on the key. Once your code is validated, the door will unlock, and you'll be granted access to your vehicle." Dwayne had no fob, as the car was just parked.

Suggested correction: I assumed the car belonged to the guy who was stood just in front of it, so the fob would have been in his pocket, close enough to start it.

Maybe start it, but since he drove away, the fob would no longer be in his possession and although the car would continue running one time, it could not be restarted.


Maybe the owner was so stupid to leave the keys in the car. "Who can steal it, here in front of me?"

Mortal Kombat picture

Factual error: When Jax's SUV is hit by ice it punctures the body but the windows remain intact. (00:21:26)

Movie Medic

Suggested correction: I didn't see any ice puncture the body, certainly not any that would break any window. Later you see dents in the hood, but that doesn't mean the windows should be broken. I've had severe hail damage in real life where the body of the car was dented without any windows being cracked.


At 22:54 you will see multiple dents into the hood up to about an 1-2" deep. At 27:35 you will see multiple dents so deep that the paint is gone and the bare body is showing. Sorry, at that force the windows would at least cracked if not more.

Movie Medic

The glass used in car windshields is about a quarter inch thick, seven times thicker than the sheet metal used in body panels. It is also about five times stronger. It wouldn't necessarily break or crack.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City picture

Deliberate mistake: In the pitch dark mansion dining room, the approaching zombie's screams are instantly interrupted by silence whenever the flame from Chris' lighter goes out, and then the screams instantly resume when the light returns. While this is obvious artistic license, for the record the level of darkness would have no bearing on whether we can hear the zombie screaming.

Factual error: When Ed and Lorraine Warren are trying to convince the lawyer to represent Arne, there are is a copy of "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel" on the shelf behind them, which was published in 2004. The film is set in 1981.

A Cinderella Story: Starstruck picture

Continuity mistake: While waiting for her audition, Finley's blouse is loosely tied above the waist, with two flaps hanging like a bow. When Finley gets onto the platform, the knot is tied tighter in the front and the two flaps overlap (look like one), hanging similar to a short tie. (00:17:05)

West Side Story picture

Continuity mistake: When Tony is below Maria's fire escape, there's a shot of her back with her fingers grabbing the platform. Shot changes to Tony's POV where she moves her hand and changes her grip. Then shot goes back to the previous angle of her still with the same grip.
