Pink Floyd The Wall

Continuity mistake: During "Comfortably Numb," the wad of cash shoved into the hotel manager's top pocket by Pink's manager disappears and reappears between shots.

Continuity mistake: In the park scene when the kids are sliding down the slide. The slide itself changes in between shots. One is flat and wide. And the other one looks 'v- shaped' and very old.

Continuity mistake: As Pink runs towards the TV screaming, he raises his guitar several times to smash the TV screen in. The effect of having it done 4 times is probably to add effect, but Pink makes four blows, look closely and you will see that the guitars change at each strike. First we see that the guitar used is a two tone red & black on the first blow, then on the second, just a black one is used then switches back to the red and black one on the third and forth. Different TVs were used in different takes, because how he strikes the TV are different.

Factual error: In World War 2 London, Pink is shown playing with an aeroplane model - an Avro York. The earliest available plastic model kit of this aircraft was produced in 1967. Inaccurate model aside, it begs the question of what a kid of Pink's age would be doing with a plastic model kit during World War 2 anyway.

More quotes from Pink Floyd The Wall

Trivia: Bob Geldof hates this film. He is quoted as saying "I hated it! I was embarrassed. I didn't know what I was getting into... I thought my acting was terrible. The script was ridiculous. And I hate Pink Floyd. As you may recall I was a punk rocker, so if you want to say something just keep it to three minutes..." He had to be physically restrained by director Alan Parker when he tried to get up and leave during the preview screening of the film at Cannes. In his autobiography "Is That It?" he trashes the film at length, labelling the script as puerile nonsense, and is particularly scathing about the political stance it appears to take. He had a miserable time on the set (reportedly, so did everyone else) and now refuses to even talk about the film or his experiences making it.
