Other mistake: Ma and Jack bake a cake, but there is no way of doing this as they have no oven - only a work top hob and a grill.
Mistakes in the IMDb top 250 - page 10
207: The Big Lebowski
Visible crew/equipment: When the Nihilists are ordering food at the restaurant, you can see the reflection of the camera and cameraman in the window behind them. Watch as the scene pans around and you can see the camera and the cameraman move as well. Could the person behind the camera be Roger Deakins? (01:34:20)
Factual error: The movie is supposed to be in the 15th century. In a scene we see a priest, wearing a Jesuit robe. But the Jesuit order was founded in the 16th century. So it's impossible that a priest wearing a Jesuit robe appears there.
210: Ford v Ferrari
Factual error: During Lee Iacocca's slide presentation to Henry Ford II in 1963, there are two slides that reference James Bond. One shows him standing next to the Aston Martin DB5, which made its debut in "Goldfinger" in 1964, and another shows a still image from "Thunderball", which was released in 1965.
211: Hotel Rwanda
Factual error: The movie is set in Rwanda in 1994. At the start of the movie you see a billboard advert for MTN, a South African cellular service provider that was not available in Rwanda in 1994.
Visible crew/equipment: During the final fight, a steady cam operator with a white shirt and black straps around his body is seen during several wide angles. This is not a TV camera, it is a film crewmember. The Director even admits to it in the audio commentary on the DVD.
Continuity mistake: After the napalm has been dropped and Charlie Sheen is blackened from the fire (and others are dead and burned), the vegetation is all still green and unscathed. Shouldn't that also be burned and destroyed from the napalm?
Continuity mistake: Right before Chef Skinner exits the kitchen, in an attempt to stop the soup from being delivered, there is no ladder to the right of the door. Then when he re-enters the kitchen, a ladder appears next to the door. (00:25:40)
Factual error: At one point in the movie, some characters are gathered in the break room that has bags of chips. One of these chip bags is a Doritos bag which has the modern logo. This logo was not implemented until 2013.
Continuity mistake: Before crashing the limo into the fence, there are two bullet holes in the rear windscreen. Afterwards, there are five. Then from an inside shot as they start backing up, there are only two again.
217: The Terminator
Continuity mistake: When the Terminator says "I'll be back" he walks out of the police station. The cop inside the building looks out of the window, looks very surprised, and you can see the headlights from the car shining on the cop's face. When we see the car just before it comes crashing through the building the headlights aren't on. In the next shot of the cop the headlights are still shining on him. (00:57:25)
218: Stand By Me
Continuity mistake: All four guys are in the junk-yard and they are all about to toss their coins to see who goes to get the food. When Teddy throws his coin in the air he is wearing no dog tag necklace but when he catches the coin he is suddenly wearing the dog tag necklace. (00:22:15)
Factual error: Lauda is an Austrian. Yet when his name appears on scoreboards with his country abbreviation, it shows AUS, which is for Australia. AUT is for Austria.
Continuity mistake: The first time William Holden and Faye Dunaway have dinner together, Holden's lit cigarette changes length several times in both directions.
221: Before Sunset
Continuity mistake: Celine is opening her apartment door. The door-handle is on the left side. When they walk in and close the door, the door-handle inside is again on the left side. (01:08:25)
222: Into the Wild
Other mistake: The closing captions state that Chris McCandless' sister Carine flew "his" brother's ashes home, instead of "her" brother's ashes.
223: The Wizard of Oz
Continuity mistake: In the beginning while Dorothy is still on the farm, she walks along the pig pen fence and then falls in. When Bert Lahr picks her up out of there her dress is perfectly clean. (00:03:45)
Visible crew/equipment: When Fred kisses Peggy, a boom mic is reflected in the left side of the car.
225: Groundhog Day
Continuity mistake: When Phil has the groundhog in the truck at the quarry and is about to drive over the edge, Rita's hair is disheveled and sticking out all around her head. But after Phil has driven off the cliff and she's looking down, it's all pinned neatly in place.
226: The Exorcist
Revealing mistake: When Father Karras sprinkles holy water on Regan, they forgot to paint her ear lobes and it looks terrible. (01:32:30)
