10 mistakes

(4 votes)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Beldar has finished giving Gladys a driving lesson and they are sitting in the car, you can see that he has nothing on his lips. After Gladys kisses Beldar, you can see red lipstick. As the shots go from Beldar to Gladys and back, you can see the lipstick disappear and re-appear.

Revealing mistake: After Connie does the dive, for someone who has just been underwater she is hardly wet at all when she gets out and when she 'dries herself off' with the towel.

Plot hole: Michael McKean quits pursuing Beldar and approximately 15 years pass as indicated by Connie growing up, yet when you see McKean again and his assistant, they have not aged at all.

William Bergquist

Visible crew/equipment: When the Alien ship is lifting the Coneheads in their red car, and the two Federal Agents, up with its magnetic gripper, as they get closer to the ship's lights you can see safety wires, either for the car or the two men.

Coneheads mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Beldar comes home from playing golf, he comes through the door from the garage. When he enters, he finds candles lining the floor. As he heads down the hallway towards the kitchen, look to the right of the screen and you can see a crew members hand on one of the stiles of the handrail of the staircase.


Other mistake: When the fighter jet says he has a missile lock, the shot cuts to the screen. You hear the characteristic beeping of a missile lock, but the screen shows only open sky.

Athletic Cone: I have learned much from watching the Garthok battle. It has weaknesses. I believe I can take it.
Beldar Conehead: Uh-huh. And let me know when Elvis gets here.
