Death Becomes Her

Revealing mistake: When Ernest runs away from Lisle, after he nearly drinks the live-forever potion, he runs down a hallway and commences to open a door with a doorknob on the left side of the door. It then cuts to the other side of the door, of Ernest walking through the door (into the party), and now the doorknob is also on the left side of the door, but it should be on the right side.

Hamster

Revealing mistake: Towards the end when Helen is about to fall down the stairs of the church (pulling Madeline with her) you can see the rope between her legs that is keeping her in the tipping point position. (01:36:55)

Revealing mistake: When Madeline is at Lisle's place the first time, she has to sit on a couch, next to a young man. Lisle tells him to make room for Madeline. He stands up and you can see a transmitter on his back attached to his pants.

Continuity mistake: Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep are fighting over Bruce Willis. Goldie Hawn is wearing a tight shirt and tight pants. Meryl is wearing a shirt with a skirt thingy attached and tight pants. Goldie has a hole through the middle of her abdomen where Streep has shot her earlier. They both grab shovels and start fighting. Bruce Willis starts to walk upstairs and he looks over the side and sees the shadows of the two women fighting. The hole is supposed to be on the shadow with the tight pants which is Goldie. Instead, the hole is shown on the body with the skirt attached to the shirt, which is Meryl. (01:10:20)

Question: In the scene where Goldie Hawn nearly gets her head run over by the car, how do they get that effect? It just looks far too dangerous to be an actual stunt, but it looks too real to be a bluescreen / split screen effect either.

Gary O'Reilly

Chosen answer: It is a composite shot, with the actor's head added to the scene. They just did a particularly good job on the scene.
