Charlie's Angels

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? (00:50:45)

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. (00:59:20)

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. (01:13:50)

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. (01:20:35)

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? (00:23:05)

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. (00:31:50)

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. (00:39:50)

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. (01:15:25)

Charlie's Angels mistake picture

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. (01:00:05)

Charlie's Angels mistake picture

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. (00:11:30)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Knoxx tracks down Charlie's phone call, Lucy Liu is up in the attic, trying to hack into the system that's locating Charlie. There's a satellite antenna right up in the attic, to which she connects her laptop. It's the same antenna Knoxx is using for the satellite uplink. It would be much easier to rip off the cables that connect Knoxx's computer to the Redstar satellites, wouldn't it? (01:11:50)

Continuity mistake: The shards in the broken window, from which Drew hangs with her sheet, look different after the repetition. In the original take it's made up of many more fragments than after the slow-motion. (00:57:25)

Charlie's Angels mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the girls are at the race track, in one shot you can see Lucy Liu flashing a bit of cleavage (when she's wearing headphones). Then shortly afterwards she's behind Corwin's car, and she's got a relatively high collared black T-shirt on. (00:29:05)

Continuity mistake: In the racing car sequence Natalie chases Creepy Thin Man. As they approach the bridge the sky's completely overcast, but when they're facing each other on it, it's suddenly clear blue sky. Then in different shots the sky changes. (00:32:00)

Continuity mistake: In the finale when the girls are climbing up the helicopter, we see Cameron Diaz sitting down on the helicopter's leg. However, AFTER that scene, from a far shot of the helicopter, Cameron Diaz is still clinging on the leg, trying to climb it. (01:20:30)

Charlie's Angels mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when the guy with the bomb and Drew Barrymore's character, in disguise, are falling out of the plane the guy with the bomb has it still strapped to his chest but after they land in the boat the vest has disappeared. It reappears a few moments later but then again disappears. (00:04:10)

Charlie's Angels mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Lucy Liu is fighting the Thin Man in the tower, the bell falls. Soon afterwards he heads towards her, sword swinging, and we can see the bell again on the right. (01:13:40)

Continuity mistake: After the two cars hit each other, and Crispin Glover's car is catapulted over the bridge, as his car falls, take a close look - there's no damage at all. Even though he skipped over Cameron Diaz's car rather than ploughed right into it, you'd expect there to be some indication... (00:32:30)

Continuity mistake: In the first fight between the girls and the Thin Man, he grabs some red hair - we see him with it at the race track. However, towards the end of the film he's creeping up behind Lucy Liu and we see him with black hair. Now, the point is that at no point has he fought with Lucy Liu and grabbed her hair - yes, he fights with her AFTERWARDS and grabs some of her hair, but when we see him holding the black hair in the bell tower, he has it before he's had a chance to get any. (01:11:50)

Continuity mistake: After the Angels come out of the sea, they start walking towards a cave, dumping their rucksacks behind them and strip to their waists. Very attractive, and a dramatic view, but in the next shot they're crouched on the beach, getting equipment out of the backpacks they just dropped. If they needed stuff from out of them, why did they dump them and keep walking? (01:06:45)
