The Godfather: Part II

Continuity mistake: In the first "Godfather" film, we see Vito Corleone's tombstone, and it says there that he was born on April 29. In this movie, however, Sonny curses the Japanese for bombing Pearl Harbor on Vito's birthday. The attack on Pearl Harbor happened on December 7, 1941.

Continuity mistake: Shortly after assassins try to kill Michael at his home, he meets privately with Tom Hagen. As Tom enters the room, the table is empty. Then, after they are talking for a few moments, Michael offers Tom a drink from a bottle of courvoisier that has magically appeared.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Roth's symbolic birthday cake is divided among his partners, we see a shot in which Michael is seen, in long-shot, putting a forkful of cake into his mouth while talking about the rebels. The thing is, it does not sound as if he is talking through a mouthful of cake. What is more, when the scene cuts to closeup, he is not chewing anything, even though it's just seconds later.

Suggested correction: Correction: Michael is accused of "devising" the murder of the heads of the five families in 1950. Devising means planning, so while it may have taken about 5 years to successfully carry out, Michael begin planning the murders in 1950.

Continuity mistake: In the Senate delegtion hearings, Michael made his speech saying he was awarded the Navy Cross. When you see Michael in uniform in Godfather I, he is wearing a Silver Star ribbon.

Mistakes

When young Vito Corleone shoots Fanucci in the chest at the doorway to his apartment, in a continuous shot, a wound/blood bursts from Fanucci's white vest. When Fanucci proceeds to tear his vest open seemingly in disbelief he has been shot, there is no entry-wound, blood or hole in his white shirt directly under where the wound appeared in his vest.

Trivia
