Continuity mistake: During the "Another one bites the dust" scene, Freddie is given a sheet, which he holds with his left hand, beer in his right. A shot later the beer is gone and the sheet has swapped hands. Then a shot later the bottle reappears in his right hand. He never gives it or has it given back. (01:12:55)

Suggested correction: Freddie drops the lyrics sheet after shoving it in Roger's face - he holding his beer in his right hand. Freddie gives the beer to Roger and when the camera moves to a close up of John's hand's playing the bass, Freddie crosses in front of John and picks up a new sheet from the table where Brian is sitting. The bottle never reappears in Freddie's hand.

You're basing your correction on a moment that occurs minutes later in the scene. And the table is 3 meters away. He couldn't have left the bottle anywhere.

Continuity mistake: When Brian tells Freddie about "We will rock you", they both clap. Right before Freddie asks "What's the lyrics?" he raises his hands to clap but from the opposite angle they are down and he isn't clapping any more.
