True Lies

Continuity mistake: When Simon pees himself, Albert's hat keeps changing the way it's tucked on his head in every single angle until he gets to the van. Watch for the right side of his temple and cheek. (01:14:25)

Continuity mistake: When Harry dances the Tango with Juno there's a wide shot of the place, in the immediate close-up two guards appear out of nowhere behind Harry.

Continuity mistake: The position of the champagne bottle holder and the next chair changes between shots. When Michelle enters the room and the camera is placed in the bedroom, the bottle holder stands between (and somewhat behind) the chair and the window wall. When Michelle approaches the table (camera is now Michelle) the chair is between the bottle holder and the window wall. Later, at the end of the scene this changes again, depending on where the camera is. (01:19:50)

Continuity mistake: After Juno Skinner has killed her limo driver, the limo speeds out of control. There are two champagne glasses in the cup holders next to Juno, but both glasses disappear and reappear between shots while Juno and Helen are fighting each other. With the limo speeding across the bridge, it doesn't make sense that Juno's gun stays on the roof for a while. The gun should have slid off the roof when the limo banged into the guard rails. It doesn't fall off until after the limo has passed through the flaming truck wreck.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Arnold is taking off in the harrier jet, the pilots hide behind a squad car. One pilot is holding his sunglasses. It switches angles and he no longer has sunglasses on. Then his hand moves and they appear as if they had fallen off and he was grabbing them. A few frames later they disappear again. If you look closely, it was obvious they were CGI'd in during editing.

Continuity mistake: After the Swiss scene, Harry, Albert and Faisil are in the office. Albert talks about the Chinese woman and the dozens screens behind are broadcasting news reports. When they walk away, a mere frame later, the images on the screens surrounding are completely different, now broadcasting satellite images and computer texts. (00:21:35)

Factual error: The terrorist with the AK47 is unaware of the fact that a Harrier is hovering just outside the window until he slowly turns and see it there. He does a double take when he sees the Harrier just five metres away! A Harrier is an incredibly loud aircraft; you can hear them from three kilometers away. At that range the floor would shake with the noise and he would have been in no doubt whatever that he had been under attack for some time.

Trivia: In the English version, when Arnold speaks to the chef in the opening sequence, he speaks French. In the French version it would be redundant for him to speak French, so he speaks German and of course it's him speaking. (00:04:50)

Question: In the scene where Helen tries to shoot the bad guys and drops the gun down the steps and the gun is firing by itself shooting everyone, one of the bad guys has a hold of Harry, Harry says one word to the guy that makes him let him go before they both get shot, what is it Harry says?

Chosen answer: He just exclaims, "Shit!" It's not what he says that makes the henchman let him go, it's that they both realize that if they don't find cover they'll both likely be shot by this random, firing Uzi.
