The Clan of the Cave Bear

Factual error: The clan people look nothing like Neanderthals, they look like Cro-Magnon with a little dirt on.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when Ayla's mom is dying, Ayla grabs on to a finger or her outstretched hand. The scene cuts and Ayla's mom has her hand wrapped around Ayla's hand.
