Die Another Day

Continuity mistake: All three surfers at the start are bare footed, but once on the beach and after, they have footwear - in a supposedly continuous scene.

Revealing mistake: When Bond climbs onto the bigger hovercraft, the smaller one overturns and you can see it's an obvious dummy sitting in the back.

Continuity mistake: After Bond first meets Jinx, he lets her try his drink. After she sips it, the top of the glass drops four to six inches below her chin. When the shot cuts to Bond, she's just tipping the glass down from her sip.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Graves are fencing, the amount of blood on Bond's nose increases or decreases randomly between shots, without any logical order.

Factual error: The invisible car cannot possibly work as it is described in the film, by projecting an image of things that are 'behind' the car onto the side that is being viewed. This ignores parallax effects - the things that are 'behind' the car change, depending on the distance and angle from which the car is being viewed. Two people standing next to each other, on the same side of the car, would need to see two entirely different images projected.

Continuity mistake: When Jinx takes a sip of her drink, Bond says to her, "Too strong for you?" and you can see takes the glass away from her mouth, but in the next shot she is holding the glass close to her lips.

James Bond: You know, you're cleverer than you look.
Q: Still, better than looking cleverer than you are.

Trivia: In the training sim, Bond refers to the virtual M's seemingly fatal wounding as "just a flesh wound." He makes this remark to John Cleese who said the same thing in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" after having all his limbs removed by king Arthur.

Question: In "The World Is Not Enough" Bond, using his intuition, correctly assessed that Elektra King had sided with the villain. So why did he never suspect for a second that Miranda Frost had done the same in this film?

Answer: Bond's suspicions about Elektra King were triggered by his discovery that her head of security, Davidov, was working with Renard. With Miranda Frost, there was nothing that would have led Bond to believe she was a double agent working for Graves/Moon in any capacity other than her undercover MI6 assignment.
