Dogma mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Silent Bob renders the demon disabled by using the anti-odour spray, you see him take the spray out of his coat and spray with his thumb. However, it cuts to a front view, and he is clearly seen using his index finger. It then cuts to Bob's rear, and he is, again, spraying with his thumb.

Continuity mistake: When Silent Bob carries Bethany's body back to the church after she's been killed by God's blast of lightning, watch her fingers when Silent Bob puts her down; she adjusts them to rest more comfortably on her arm.

Continuity mistake: The writing on the second book from the left on the right of Bethany's bed changes colours in different scenes.

Continuity mistake: When Bartleby and Loki go to the Mooby board room, Bartleby is listing the various Mooby products, and he forgets to mention the comic book. No one points out that he also never mentions the Mooby fast-food chain that we see the other characters at earlier in the film.

Continuity mistake: In the bar, when Azrael is doing his speech, everybody but Jay is listening to him; Jay is sleeping. It goes back to Azrael and he says something, the camera goes to Jay and he looks at Rufus, the camera then goes back to Azrael, and in the next shot Jay is sleeping again.

Continuity mistake: In the Mooby HQ scene, the CEO tells one of his executives to call security. The executive's hand is right on the phone when Loki throws a knife into it. The movie cuts to a close-up of the phone but the executive's hand is nowhere in sight. It then cuts back and you can see the executive with his hand back on the phone, right before he pulls it away when the phone shorts out.

Continuity mistake: When Bethany is being attacked by the "hockey players" outside of her job she is knocked down and her keys fall across a puddle. When the kid lines up his slapshot, there is no puddle. When the camera angle changes the puddle has returned.

Continuity mistake: When everyone arrives at the church and Loki shoves Bethany away, one of her hair barrettes completely falls out, so half of her hair is down. When the camera shows her next, a few shots later, her hair is up again.

Continuity mistake: During the fight on the train when Loki goes to hit Jay he decks him with a right cross but when he is shown from behind it looks as if he is starting an upper cut.

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning when Bethany and the boys are in the diner, Bethany takes a big bite out of her muffin. But throughout the rest of the scene you can see it on the plate in front of her, and both pieces are whole.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, Jay takes off his pants in order to have sex with Bethany, as she promised. He takes them off, then in the next scene, from Bethany's angle, he is taking them off for a second time, when they had previously been around his ankles already.

Continuity mistake: When Ben Affleck is waving the broken bottle around on the train, in some shots the body of the bottle is still relatively intact, but in others he's only got the neck left.

Continuity mistake: When Metatron is talking to Bethany, it shows that her phone is sitting almost right on top of a book. In the next shot of her, it is sitting right beside the book.

Continuity mistake: When Bethany runs into the water, her white sweater becomes see-through. In the next shot when 'the voice' starts to talk to her, it's completely dry.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Bethany is in bed, right before the Metatron arrives her phone is on the hook. Right after he turns her bat into a fish it is off the hook even though she was never in a position to even accidentally knock it off the hook. (00:14:40)


Continuity mistake: In one of the end scenes after Bartleby's wings have been cut off they show an overhead view where all the blood on the ground is quite obviously pink not red.

Continuity mistake: After Jay and Silent Bob cause Bethany's car to break down, she walks angrily away, shouting "nobody is f***ing me." Depending on the camera angle during that scene, the device used to hold her hair back is different.

Continuity mistake: When Bethany drinks coffee with her colleague at her job, you can see the coffee ripple in the machine in the back. After a cut, it is completely calm.

Continuity mistake: When Rufus falls, naked, from the sky and lands on the pavement, he lands with his legs spread. In the next shot, his legs are closed.

Continuity mistake: The writing on the second book from the left on the right of Bethany's bed changes colours in different scenes.

Bethany: I don't want this, it's too big.
Metatron: That's what Jesus said. Yes, I had to tell him. And you can imagine how that hurt the Father - not to be able to tell the Son Himself because one word from His lips would destroy the boy's frail human form? So I was forced to deliver the news to a scared child who wanted nothing more than to play with other children. I had to tell this little boy that He was God's only Son, and that it meant a life of persecution and eventual crucifixion at the hands of the very people He came to enlighten and redeem. He begged me to take it back, as if I could. He begged me to make it all not true. And I'll let you in on something, Bethany, this is something I've never told anyone before... If I had the power, I would have.

More quotes from Dogma

Trivia: When Jay drags Bethany behind the PA equipment and says that she'd agree to sleep with him if it was the end of the world, he pulls out a condom. If it's the end of the world, and existence is going to be undone, why bother with a condom? [It's a gag, rather than a mistake in the film. Worth keeping as trivia though.]

More trivia for Dogma

Question: Metatron tells Bethany that Bartleby and Loki have been clued into a loophole in catholic dogma that would allow them back into heaven. What does he mean by "catholic dogma"?

Answer: Roman Catholic is the oldest of the Christian Churches, and the one from which all others (Eastern Orthodox and Protestant) have separated. Dogma is the core tenets of a given religion, the ideas that make up that religion and which can never be changed, because to do so would destroy the entire belief system (contrasted with doctrine, common beliefs and interpretations held by a church that can change over time). So Catholic dogma is the specific, basic beliefs of the Catholic Church, in this case, "God is infallible."


Yes, the Orthodox Church did separate, but you're false in that the Roman Catholic Church is the oldest of the Christian churches. Historically, the Greek Orthodox Church is the oldest.

Answer: There is a difference between Catholic with a capital c and catholic with a small c. With a capital c it is in reference to the catholic church. With a small c it is in reference to the christian faith. For example in the protestant apostles creed it says I believe in the holy catholic church meaning the christian faith.
