The Last Starfighter

Continuity mistake: Right after Alex and Beta have their argument in Alex's Bedroom, Louis wakes up and then pretends to fall back asleep. In the shot (with the door that Alex just used in the background) Louis gets up again and bends over to look at Beta, he's moving towards the camera. However, in the next shot, Beta hasn't moved, and he was looking in the direction of Alex (the opposite side of the bed Louis should have been on).

Continuity mistake: When Beta takes off his head to adjust his hearing, it alternates between his real read, and an obvious dummy head between shots.
