Mistakes in cinema and rental titles

1917 picture

Factual error: The strong current of the river the main character falls into carries him to a considerable waterfall. There is nor has there ever been a river of that kind in Flanders' Fields, let alone a waterfall. Anyone who has any insight into the geography of the region will tell you it is flat as can be. The largest body of water, the Yzer, gently meanders and flows into the Channel, even during really rainy times.

Suggested correction: I do not believe that either Ecoust or Croisilles Wood is in Flanders. Both are behind the old German lines at the Somme. That said, there are no bodies of water in that area.

Bad Boys II picture

Continuity mistake: In the final chase scene, the yellow Hummer starts out with an open sunroof. As it barrels through the shantytown, interior shots of the Hummer show it with a large overhead bank of storage compartments, while overhead shots show the sunroof. When the chase finally reaches Gitmo, the Hummer once again is shown with an open sunroof. (02:11:50 - 02:12:55)

Bloodshot picture

Factual error: When Ray leaves his wife Gina and his car is hit by the truck he should still be in England, but when he is being chased through the streets he is in South Africa, the cops in the car are not in English police uniforms or vehicle, police livery is incorrect, and all vehicles have South Africa plates, not English number plates.

Frozen II picture

Continuity mistake: When Anna's singing "The next right thing" she puts a bag on her shoulder, with the strap on top of her hair. After the camera spins round her, her hair is suddenly underneath the strap. This bears a strong similarity to the mistake in the original Frozen where Elsa's hair passes through her shoulder - might be a deliberate nod, or else animating hair around objects is difficult enough that shortcuts are often taken.

The Gentlemen picture

Continuity mistake: When Pierce's wife is walking in her auto shop they pan down to show her red Louboutin heels, then they cut to her walking in her office, and when they show her shoes again they have a tan sole.

Heat pictureHeat mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Neil (De Niro) breaks into Van Zant's apartment and shoots him, watch as Van Zandt flies backward. You can see a wire running up through the bottom of his sweat pants.

The Invisible Man picture

Audio problem: When the invisible man slaps Sydney (making Cecilia look guilty), the sound of a bare hand slap is heard. But the invisible man was wearing gloves as part of his suit, so the sound would have been duller and blunt.

Joker picture

Factual error: Based on the films being shown at the theater, the movie appears to be set in 1981. One of the TV commercials shows the Energizer Bunny, which didn't make its first appearance until 1988.

Jumanji: The Next Level picture

Continuity mistake: Professor Sheldon 'Shelly' Oberon sprains his right ankle when escaping the baboons by jumping to another bridge. Ming Fleetfoot wraps his left ankle later on when they are by the river. (01:11:38 - 01:14:00)

Knives Out picture

Factual error: The drug in Marta's bag is incorrectly labeled as Ketorlac, when it's Ketorolac, with an extra O. It's the name of the molecule, not a brand name that could have been altered for legal reasons - and they mention the commercial name just minutes later during questioning, with no alteration. (00:36:00 - 01:49:00)

The Lovebirds picture

Continuity mistake: First argument. Leilani shouts "Why are you being so loud right now?", with a hand behind her neck. She does not start the next shot in that position, she puts her hand there only a second later. (00:04:05)

My Spy picture

Other mistake: In the scene with a leak in the kitchen, the woman fixes it by turning an isolating tap above the leak. However the water would have been travelling up the pipe to the kitchen tap and so that wouldn't have stopped the leak. (00:34:00)

Onward picture

Continuity mistake: When Officer Bronco discovers the bumper to the van on the path he drives on the path without moving or running over the bumper.

Parasite picture

Continuity mistake: Throughout the movie in several scenes the living room has 2 couches even up until the Parks are getting ready to leave for their camping trip, 1 big one and one small. The very next scene when the Kims are getting drunk, the small couch has disappeared. This must be to make room for the Kims to slide and crawl out from under the table. The strange thing is when the Parks come back home, they don't notice that one of their couches is missing. It remains missing until the end.

Sonic the Hedgehog picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Tom and Sonic pull over and the mini drone explodes, knocking Sonic unconscious, the camera pans away and you can see emergency vehicles blocking the road on the right of the screen, presumably closing down the road for filming. (00:59:55)

The Way Back picture

The Wrong Missy picture

Continuity mistake: David Spade just sat down with the prankster blind date. When she (kinda accurately) says "By the way, the age thing..." his hand in a blink goes from the table to the back of the couch. (00:02:20)
