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?

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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?

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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.

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.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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?

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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...

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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?

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Dylan jumps from the copter, she has her jacket unzipped, and you can see her yellow shirt underneath, but when the Angels get out of the water, her jacket is zipped up. It's not like she had time to zip it while being blown out of the sky and washing ashore unconscious.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: At the start of the film just as Drew Barrymore in disguise drops down into the boat you see her disconnect her parachute from the straps around her body. However in the next shot you can see that the straps are gone. She never had time to remove them.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie you see Charlie walking down the beach, then looking back at presumably the Angels, at that time it's sunset. When it goes back to a shot of the Angels and Bosley, there's still a bright blue sky as if it were still the afternoon.

Continuity mistake: The picture of the "Creepy Thin Man" changes from the original one to the one Cameron Diaz later holds in her hand.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the start of the film Lucy Liu is jumping out of a helicopter with a black parachute rig on her back. In the next shot we see her tracking towards Drew Barrymore, notice the deployment system (BOC) in the bottom of her rig (blue plastic handle). In the next scene we are watching her from from the front and you can now see the deployment system has changed both colour to red and it is now "pull out" instead of BOC.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the girls are fighting the Creepy Thin Man, there is one shot where Dylan and Alex are about to kick him in the chest together. They start the kick both standing on their left legs and kicking with their rights, but when the kick connects to The Creepy Thin Man's chest, Alex is now standing on her right leg and kicking with her left.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the plane at the beginning, just before the bomber speaks, a stewardess passes in front of the camera. It's obviously to cover a cut - after she's passed, the amount of sun visible on the seats changes, the two women behind are closer to the camera, and the nun's looking the other way.

Charlie's Angels mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As Lucy Liu is climbing up to the place Bosley has been kidnapped and brought to she is wearing a back pack. The first shot of her it is just a knapsack, then she has a large collapsible bow and arrow, far too large to fit in the pack. Where was it before?

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Cameron Diaz throws the muffin at the door, it is sitting up normally and in the door fully. However, when Bill Murray enters, the muffin is only half way in and on an angle.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When the Angels are driving in the tunnel, before they make a U turn they stop the car and cause a terrible traffic jam behind them. When the car has turned around, camera changes angles and the lane that was jammed with cars is now completely empty.

xx:xx:xx

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When the Angels are describing how to break into the computer vault, they show the first guy putting his left hand up to the reader to gain entry. When Dylan (Drew's character) puts her hand up later on to gain entry when they're actually breaking in, it's also her left hand. But when they lift the prints from the beer bottle in the restaurant, he clearly lifts the bottle with his right hand, takes a drink, then puts the bottle down, never touching it with his left. This same mistake is repeated when they show Dylan looking at the fake hand being created and lifting up out of the goo - it's a right hand that pops up (even though Dylan correctly flexes and looks at her left hand as she admires her work).

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: At the race track, when Dylan jumps into the chauffeur's car, she says, "It's hot out there". A couple of scenes later, we see Creepy Thin Man rubbing a piece of Dylan's hair on his face, and breathing heavily. Look closely, and you can see fog coming out of his mouth. As we all know, that only happens when it's cold.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Drew Barrymore takes off her LL Cool J mask, you can see he had dark brown eyes before she takes the mask off. After she takes off the mask and flips her hair, her eyes are green. She obviously would have had to have worn dark brown contact lenses with the disguise, but there's no shot of her removing them.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Alex is massaging Corwin, as she runs to jump on his back, she is running alongside him and then she jumps. It then cuts to her just jumping on his back.

Continuity mistake: In the party scene, when Bosley is talking to the president of Red star he is offered blowfish (1 in sixty chance of death etc.) when the dish is first brought out there is nothing on it - but when Bosley takes one he pulls saran wrap off of the dish.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: How did all three Angels manage to get blown through Alex's grey car's window? Not only did Natalie park her red car in front of the grey car, but her car disappears totally before they are all blown backwards by the building explosion into the grey one.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: Drew's car is parked at an angle when she looks back at Chad before jumping in the car, but then when skidding out she's straight as an arrow.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Alex spots the Thin Man for the first time, we see Dylan wearing opened toe heels. As soon as they are in the stairwell, they seem to become boots. I don't know about you but I can't change my shoes while running.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the party scene, Tim Curry and Bill Murray are talking and a waitress comes up to them. In the first shot she is in front of them both and in the next she is suddenly behind Tim.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tom Green's character is giving the Angels a ride in the boat, look behind the boat and you will see that the "frothy" ocean water churned up by the propellers only goes back a very short distance. The boat was obviously sitting in one place (drifting, actually) for a period of time and only started moving immediately before they started filming.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When they are driving in the Ferrari 360, if you look at the lanes, they are driving on the correct and oncoming lanes.

Continuity mistake: When Bosley is in the dungeon towards the end of the movie he is seen ripping his sheet to shreds trying to make a rope. If you look in the window where he throws his rope there is light coming in from outside - not necessarily daylight, but a floodlight or similar. From outside though, the wall is pitch black, with no light coming from the room either.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the last scene with the tugboat you can see the wake starting a few hundred meters behind the boat, even though it is supposed to have been sailing for a while.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene, when the red Ford Taurus flies into the air and flips, in one shot its a 96-97 model, in another shot it becomes a 98-99 model (grille is different).
