Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Continuity mistake: When the helicopter plummets into the wedding terrace, its nose is either pointing the right side or the left, depending on the shot. No continuity at all.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny breaks the news to Ben about Reed and Sue leaving the group, as Alicia says, "You can't be mad at them for doing what makes them happy", in first shot, her arms are down, but in the next shot, she's holding her hand underneath her chin. (00:39:10)

Continuity mistake: When the helicopter is being stopped by Susan, the bridesmaid's hair moves wildly, yet when the chopper gets closer and is about to kill her, her flowers and hair barely move, despite being inches away from the tail rotors and rotor blades.

Continuity mistake: When the movie starts, Reed and Susan are in an airport, with a couple of stewardesses walking behind them. When the shot changes, a young woman has replaced them, yet a shot later they reappear behind.

Continuity mistake: Thing, Johnny and Reed are at the disco. Johnny steps forward and Reed grabs him and says "We had a deal". A frame later Johnny is not two meters ahead but aligned with Reed.

Continuity mistake: As the Silver Surfer and the Human Torch fly down the face of the sloping Grace building, traffic on 42nd Street, below, can be seen moving to the right. When they hit the street level, traffic direction has reversed relative to the building. The number of lanes visibly reduces from 6 in the above view (2 parking lanes, 2 traffic lanes in each direction separated by a double yellow line) to 4 at the street-level view. This would also qualify under another category, as 42nd Street traffic is two-directional. The first, high angle shot from above correctly depicts the actual conditions on the street. (00:29:25)

Continuity mistake: Johnny chases the Surfer, who surfs down a building and shatters its windows and facade, yet none of the debris fall or even appear on the street in the next shots.
