Last Action Hero

Continuity mistake: When they are in the ambulance, Danny screams 'I said, turn around!' and draws his gun. The next shot shows the driver looking to the rear and getting scared by the gun. In this shot you can see by the window that the car is totally stopped, and some car with a yellow light is passing by them. But in the very next shot, the ambulance is stopping (you can even hear the tires) and there is no car with the yellow light to be seen. (01:55:05)

Continuity mistake: When Nick tells Danny that he can arrange a preview of the movie, he puts his glasses on, yet from the side-angle they're off.

Continuity mistake: When Benedict pulls Leo's finger at the funeral to start the timer on the wristwatch, you can see that the timer was pre-set for ten minutes on the upper part of the display and the countdown is in the lower part of the display.There are two more shots of the countdown on the watch. First at 3:32 left when Jack knocks out the doctor and then at about 30 seconds left over the tar pits. Both of these shots show that a piece of silver tape has been applied to the upper half of the display, probably to cover a lower starting count so they wouldn't have to wait 10 minutes between shots. (01:07:50 - 01:18:05)

Continuity mistake: Before the thug lands on the ice cream truck, when Jack shoots him his moving car is right next to the truck, so he could not have flown for several meters towards the truck. In fact he would have driven way past the ice cream truck and crashed against the curb.
