Scary Movie

Revealing mistake: At the end in the "Matrix" fight scene, the killer throws Cindy against the wall, which moves at the top. Watch the gap at the top of the wall. (01:11:00)

Continuity mistake: When Drew goes to answer the door to the trick-or-treaters, the shot of the table at the front door has four legs at the corners. When the close up shot of it is taken, it's now a totally different table with a single middle post.


Continuity mistake: When Cindy is fighting the killer during the Matrix spoof, there is a short, storage table to the right of the plaid curtains. When the killer flies backwards through the window, that table is to the left of the curtains. (01:14:00)

Continuity mistake: During the final confrontation scene between Cindy, Bobby and Ray, watch the knife that Ray holds. During close-ups it's a hunting knife with a fairly large blade. However, during a couple of the long shots, the knife blade is a different style and much shorter, obviously the prop knife used for the stabbings.


Continuity mistake: In the scene when Cindy comes out of the school where the jumper is on the roof, its very sunny just a few feet beyond the door. However in the shots where Cindy is facing the school and when she screams "What are you waiting for" - the area is now completely shaded.


Continuity mistake: When Cindy is walking away from the bum after giving him a sandwich, we see a white VW van driving away over her left shoulder. When the bum throws the sandwich back at her the van is parked back by the sign again.


Cindy: You've seen too many TV shows!
Ray: No! Watching TV shows doesn't create psycho killers! Cancelling TV shows does! [Ray starts stabbing Bobby]. Waynes Brothers was a good show! It was a damn good show! And, we didn't even get a final episode!

Trivia: In the beginning of the movie, the girl is hit by a car which turns out to be driven by her father who seems quite busy. In the deleted scenes of the movie, the car that hits Cindy in the very end turns out to be driven by the same man, in the same way.

Question: How come at the end of the movie when Cindy realizes that Doofy is the killer and she drops the coffee cup on the ground there is a fish there? I know it's a joke but I don't get it.

Chosen answer: I know for sure they were making fun of the movie 'Usual Suspects' (dropping the cup) - they might have added the gag of the fish in it to appear as though she was shocked by the fish instead of the true identity of Doofy.
