Three Kings

Revealing mistake: When they find the paper map sticking out the Iraqi soldier's bottom it is neatly rolled up and straight. One should imagine it being quite crumpled after having spent some time in this particular hiding place. (00:08:00)

Revealing mistake: When Troy's torturer tells him how his son was killed by falling concrete there's a flashback where one can see that the boy is a dummy. (01:04:50)

Revealing mistake: When the castle is being attacked, Ice Cube dives away from an explosion. If you watch it in slow motion, you can see it's his stunt double. (01:22:50)

Continuity mistake: In one scene, some of Saddam's troops pour oil all over Mark Whalberg's face (while forcing him to bite down on a CD so it runs into his mouth) in an attempt to torture him. The next scene, when he is rescued, he has nothing but the requisite smudges and "movie dirt" on his face. Apparently the Iraqis decided to clean the oil slick off of his face before he got rescued.
