Charlie's Angels

Revealing mistake: When the Angels are fighting the "Creepy Thin Man," right before Drew Barrymore lifts up Lucy Liu to spin her around and kick the thin man, to get Lucy's attention, Drew hollers out "Lucy!" even though Lucy Liu's character's name is "Alex."

Continuity mistake: The caravan is shot-up with machine guns - so why are the bullet holes (the metal of the caravan's walls) bending outwards?

Continuity mistake: Just after the explosion at the Angels' headquarters, Drew has soot all over her face, but in the final shot of her she's clean. Her hair's a lot neater too.

Continuity mistake: When Lucy Liu is climbing a rope up the walls of the bad guy's castle lair, you can clearly see that she is wearing shoes without heels. But later on when she's fighting various bad guys, she's wearing four-inch heels.

Deliberate mistake: When the girls all order their food at the drive through they get their food but never pay.

Continuity mistake: During the helicopter scene at the end, the rope as well as the clamps they used to pull themselves up on suddenly disappear from underneath it. It's visible in most of the close-ups underneath the helicopter, but missing in others.

Continuity mistake: In the first pursuit of the Creepy Thin Man, at the party, the girls are running down the stairs while they change and begin to litter the stairwell with clothes. There's one wig dropped that's dark brown/black and straight. Though Lucy's hair at the party does appear shorter than her actual hair length, her hair is curled up at the ends, not straight like the dropped wig. So whose was it?

Factual error: In the opening scene with the terrorist on the aeroplane, the LL Cool J character opens the hatch to the cabin and jumps out with the mad bomber. Pretty amazing considering aircraft doors open inward, requiring about two tons of force to overcome the air pressure exerted from inside the cabin.

Plot hole: In the Redstar mainframe, we are told that the floor of the vault will trigger the alarm if it receives more than 0.25 seconds of contact (apparently even with the security checks). What would be the point of the bosses going through all of those security measures if they would just set the alarm off anyway? Surely once the girls have faked the fingerprint and retina scans, they don't then need to flip across the floor!

Continuity mistake: When Cameron Diaz is racing down with F-1, one of the cars flips and crashes. Notice that it's very obvious there's no-one in any of the cars, even though they're supposedly driving along the street, at traffic lights, etc.

Continuity mistake: When Natalie is in the room preparing to enter the chamber to install the device on RedStar's system, she is wearing a white outfit from head to toe with a small oxygen mouthpiece for breathing. However, when the door opens to the room and she begins her gymnastic flips over to the system, the outfit no longer covers her hair and the oxygen mouthpiece is gone. There doesn't appear to be a hood attached to the outfit.

Revealing mistake: When Drew is shot through the window, supposedly naked under the towel, you can see underwear when the shot is from below looking up, before she falls. As she falls down the hill, look closely and you can see the skin-tone suit she wears.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Angels are fighting on top of the tower, Lucy Liu and Crispin Glover do a spinning move. There is a close up on Lucy before she does the move and then in the next shot we see her and Crispin spinning out of the way. In the close up shot, we see her starting to spin to her right, but in the wide shot she's spinning to her left.

Visible crew/equipment: Right after the race car goes over the bridge the scene changes to the Angels' HQ & there is a close-up of the TV screen that they are watching. As the camera zooms out you can very clearly see the reflection in the TV of the cameraman backing away from the screen with his eye to camera.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: At one stage the Angels speak with each other in a different language, so that the people sitting next to them wouldn't understand. Having listened to it for a few times, I realized it was Finnish. Funny though, the thing they actually said there (in Finnish), was totally different than the written translation.

Plot hole: When the girls found Knox in the room, they had to break down the door because it was bolted from inside. Now wouldn't that be suspicious? He's in a room where the only way out is through a door that was bolted from the inside...

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When the Angels are picking through the wreckage of their headquarters, look at the only remaining wall - it's the thinnest wall you'll ever see.

Continuity mistake: When the girls figure out that Knox is after Charlie, and Dylan thinks of the picture and they zoom in onto "Townsend." The shot before the final shot of the photograph shows Knox's father's arm around Charlie, when in all the other shots, he has his arms above his head.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Angel throws Lucy's "homemade" muffin: The first muffin actually broke through the door and you could see the depth and the cracks around the point of entry. When the girl comes through the same door, you can see the door no longer has a hole in it, just a fake muffin with adhesive attached to the door to look as if it had done so previously.

xx:xx:xx

Other mistake: As the girls learn about their assignment from Charlie, he shows them a film. The film shows Knox in a tree. His sweatshirt says "BOSTON" in white letters. It is backwards in that shot, and the scene following.
