New this month Factual error: SPOILER ALERT: When the Joker kills his mom in the hospital, the heart monitor that she is connected to does not alarm as her heart rate skyrockets, then starts to fail. This would cause the nurses to come running into the room. Setting an alarm on the heart monitor is standard medical protocol in a hospital, especially in an ICU which is where she would have been with her serious condition.


New this month Factual error: When Joker is following his neighbor to her work, the 'no standing' sign is not from the time period. Also when Joker is fleeing from two police officers into the subway at 18 avenue, the subway sign with the red EXIT background is not of the time period.

New this month Audio problem: The police officers chase Arthur to the subway. When the subway train starts moving after they just barely got in, the sound resembles the acceleration sound of a R143 subway car, which actually didn't exist until 2001, but it looks like a much older car, like an R32 or something.

New this month Revealing mistake: Towards the end when Fleck is in the police car, you can see where his white face paint has been applied for previous takes.

New this month Suggested correction: Can you clarify this entry? He is wearing the face paint throughout the scene. When should he not have had it on?

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

Suggested correction: He fires the gun. It then cuts away to show the third Wayne employee running through the train before cutting back to Arthur. He could have at least partially reloaded during that time.

Continuity mistake: When Joker is dancing on the stairs he throws his cigar. Then when the cops arrive at the top of the stairs we see him blowing smoke from the same cigar. Then the cigar is gone again.

Continuity mistake: Joker's left eye make up changes shape (blue messy cry smear) and size before going on the show, then is very neat on the show, and then jumps back to being smaller with the left eye crying look in the police car.

Arthur Fleck: My mother always tells me to smile and put on a happy face. She told me I had a purpose: to bring laughter and joy to the world.
