Inception

Stupidity: Cobb convinces Fischer to enter a dream saying it's Browning's dream. A couple of scenes later he says it's Eames' dream, in front of Fischer, who doesn't know Eames was impersonating Browning. (00:51:35)

Suggested correction: Firstly, the Browning that the team "catches" is not Eames, it is a projection of Fischer's subconscious. Eames was only impersonating Browning in the first level. Secondly, Cobb doesn't say they are going into Browning's dream, he says they should put him under and do to him what the kidnappers were planning to do to Fischer. That is, use Fischer as the subject of the next dream level. Fischer knows that Eames is the dreamer on the third level, he even jokingly asks why Eames couldn't dream of a beach. But he thinks that Eames is part of Mr. Charles' security team. He believes that Browning is to be the subject on the last level when in fact, Fischer is the subject on each level. Because of how effective the Mr. Charles gambit was, Fischer is unaware that the team has been fighting his subconscious all along.

Revealing mistake: When Ariadne is pulling the two huge mirrors close together underneath the bridge with Cobb, watch her when she is closing the second mirror. She steps over something even though there is nothing present for her to step over. There must have been a green screen frame there for her to step over.

Question: How do the people in the film share a dream? I understand that the briefcase contains sedatives to put everyone to sleep, but how do they get inside a certain individuals dream? How do they end up being in the same dream together?

Chosen answer: The details are never explained in the depth, but all the dreamers are connected via the briefcase, so it seems likely that the briefcase acts in some way as a networking hub for them to share the dreamspace.
