89: Reservoir Dogs
Continuity mistake: Harry stands on top of a building with a girl folding paper planes. The plane they fold is folded with a blunt front. He throws it off the building and then the plane flies, all of a sudden the nose is sharp, this is visible. (00:12:10)
Continuity mistake: After Elsie has been kidnapped, there is a scene where a little girl walks up to an old man to ask him for the time. A man notices this and walks towards the old man. The old man is standing in front of a light pole which casts a shadow onto the pavement. In another shot, there are no shadows near the light pole.ployp
96: Citizen Kane
Character mistake: During the dancing girl scene, as they are singing the praises of Kane, the girl to the immediate right sings out of time with the rest of the dancers during the line "His favorite son." Even though she forgets to sing the line, she can be heard singing it a bit too late. (00:41:00)Louisville Pittman
100: Full Metal Jacket
101: The Kid
Continuity mistake: After the Tramp has found the Kid as a baby, he sits down by a drain and contemplates dropping the baby in. He puts his cane alongside him, so that it is at right-angles to the pavement (pointing towards the camera). The shot changes, and suddenly it is now parallel with the pavement.Andrew Upton
104: North by Northwest
105: A Clockwork Orange
Continuity mistake: In the motel chainsaw scene, before the Colombians pull out their guns, there are several food containers, a bag of cookies and a soda can lined up neatly on a table, seen in multiple shots. After the skirmish, Hector pulls the chainsaw out of its box and Tony is leaning against the table with the items now all scattered in different positions. A few minutes later, Manny shoots his way in. You can see the table in multiple shots and the items are back in their original positions.ben6679
Factual error: The strong current of the river the main character falls into carries him to a considerable waterfall. There is not, nor has there ever been, a river of that kind in Flanders' Fields, let alone a waterfall. Anyone who has any insight into the geography of the region will tell you it is flat as can be. The largest body of water, the Yzer, gently meanders and flows into the Channel, even during really rainy times.
109: Taxi Driver
112: Lawrence of Arabia
113: Toy Story 3
Continuity mistake: When Mom gives Molly the donation box she writes "Sunnyside" on one side of the corrugated box. When the Sunnyside box is in the car and also when Mom carries it to the daycare, there is printed writing at the side of the box (to the right of the "e" in Sunnyside) under the hand hole, but when Bonnie's Mom carries the box into the butterfly room that writing has vanished, then it reappears when the kids go to recess.

114: The Sting
Plot hole: A vital plot line, obviously, is that Doyle wants to kill the con men who fleeced his runner of the numbers money. He has Luther killed and turns his best men (and women) onto Johnny Hooker, almost killing him, too. What about the third conman, Kid Erie? He is an essential part of the con, as much a part of it as Luther and Hooker. During the setup - just before they fleece him - the numbers runner watches Kid Erie running away. He looks at him, Hooker and Luther in turn. Even if he couldn't identify him he would still be able to inform Doyle that there were three rather than two con men involved. Even so, Kid Erie comes and goes as he pleases. Doyle doesn't have anyone looking for him; he doesn't even mention him in conversation, and in fact consistently refers to two - not three - con men. He makes it clear that he would have to kill his best friend if he even found out about the con, yet he lets one of the central participants go scot free. It doesn't make any sense at all.
Continuity mistake: When Nino goes to 'Les deux Moulins' for the first time, we can see Amelie writing the menu on a glass right behind him. A few shots later, we see the glass again and the handwriting is quite different. That's easy to see if you look carefully at the 'd'. Later on, we see the glass once more, and the handwriting has changed again. (01:32:55)
