Scream 3 (2000)

Scream 3 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Before Sidney pulls the killer out of the door on the house set, we see the bedside table is lengthwise against the wall. As the killer falls towards the bed it's turns 90 degrees, so the bed is a bit closer to the door. (01:05:45)

Back to the Future mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As the Delorean accelerates towards Doc and Marty in the car park, in a shot from the car's perspective they're a few feet apart, then we cut to a close up, and they're right next to each other. (00:21:45)

Continuity mistake: When Jacob is carrying Bella through the woods, in some shots her left sleeve is quite far over her hand, but on others it's further back by her wrist.

Continuity mistake: When Bella's talking to her dad on the sofa early in the movie, watch her right ear. Sometimes there's hair covering it, sometimes it's clear, and sometimes there's a chunk of hair hanging in front of it. (00:05:45)

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Continuity mistake: The executive toy on Pepper's desk is moving around throughout their conversation, but the positions don't always match as the camera angle switches - keep an eye on the longer bit of metal, which is sometimes pointing upwards then is suddenly upside down in a different shot.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Continuity mistake: At the Stark Expo in the beginning, when Tony Stark talks about "kicking back", as he says "on my best day" his hands are by his sides, then we cut to a different angle and his hands are instantly behind his back.

Burn Notice (2007)

Devil You Know - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Michael's mother is arrested, we see the cuffs go on with her bracelet nearer her hands than the cuffs. The shot changes and suddenly her bracelet's further up her arm - no way it could have moved there past the cuffs.

Edge of Darkness (2010)

Continuity mistake: When Ray Winstone takes his pill with whiskey while talking to Mel Gibson, he takes a swig of the drink and knocks the pill back, leaving some alcohol in the glass. When we cut to a wide shot his glass is completely empty.

Human Target (2010)

Pilot - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When the target's iPhone rings and Christopher Chance answers it, he swipes his finger across the bottom of the screen, which is the regular gesture to answer a call on the iPhone. Trouble is that we see the screen at the time, and it's not showing an incoming call, just some sort of list - he swipes his finger over nothing of any significance at all.

Better Off Ted (2009)

Love Blurts - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Ted's talking about saying "I Love You" after sex, we see a flashback to the previous evening, him rolling over and saying it, then it cuts. He then talks about making it worse - we see the same scene again, this time not cutting afterwards, except it's not the same scene. The first time the duvet was down to his date's waist, the second time it stays up by her chest.

2012 (2009)

Continuity mistake: As the heads of state decide to open the gates, we see the countdown timer in the background go from 14:40 remaining to 14:39. We cut to a different angle, and it's back up to 14:41.

Hot Fuzz (2007)

Trivia: When they do the handbrake turn at the very end of the film, we see the gear stick for a fraction of a second. Freeze-frame it and you'll see it has the initials "HF" on it.

Dead Like Me (2003)

Dead Like Me mistake picture

Ashes to Ashes - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Rube's talking to the graffiti artist, he's painting what looks like a blue cat. We cut away, hear a brief paint spray, then cut back. There's now far more painted than that spray could have achieved, and what was there already has changed as well.

Continuity mistake: When the bank teller counts out the $800 near the start, from her point of view the bills are all in a very neat pile, but from the other angle they're slightly splayed out.

Fringe (2008)

Night of Desirable Objects - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: When the typewriter is being used at the end, the keys being pressed don't correspond to the words appearing on the paper. Obvious from the start - the first letter pressed is on the middle row of the keyboard, but the first word typed is "unacceptable".

Smokin' Aces (2006)

Continuity mistake: Just after Ryan Reynolds pulls the plug, he's sitting upright. As the agents rush towards the door at the end, we can see in a brief shot that he is slumped with his head in his hands. We then cut to a shot inside, and he's sitting upright again.

Continuity mistake: During the pool sequence, we see a few shots of the pressure gauge, some close-up, some wider. In some some shots the scale goes up to 160, in others it only goes to 100.
