8 Mile (2002)

(2 votes)

Continuity mistake: When Rabbit and his mom's boyfriend were kicking each other's ass inside the Smith's trailer, Rabbit pushes or punches the boyfriend from the kitchen to the living room, breaking a small wooden post in a quick shot. A few shots later, when Rabbit returns to the trailer, the wooden post is intact. There was no time to fix it.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy and Wink are walking to the bus stop, and Jimmy says "don't tell anyone I'm living back here man", they are just about to walk past a blue and white trailer. But when it cuts to the next shot with Wink saying "I heard you got caught out", they have walked about 15 feet past the trailer.
