Rebound (2005)

Continuity mistake: After the entire team has muddy water splashed all over them by a car on the way to a game, Coach Roy's clothing is miraculously mud-free once he arrives at the school. Several other subsequent scenes in the same period of time had discrepancies in having mud or no mud on the team members' clothing, going back and forth.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie Herbie did several "doughnuts" on a large grassy area causing obvious damage to the grass, then stopped in the middle of the area he was doing doughnuts. In several subsequent shots (but not all) there was no damage to the grass.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the movie Crazy Dave was dragged a distance on the ground behind Herbie. When he got up he had random dirt stains on his clothes whereas there should have been dirt all over and likely physical damage to his clothes.

Bewitched (2005)

Continuity mistake: When Jack Wyatt is speaking on stage, there is a large video screen behind him, to allow those far from the stage to see the speaker clearly. The movement by Jack on stage is not the same as the movement on the screen. When Jack is moving quickly the image on the screen is not (and vice-versa).

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: On a live video board, the projected image is always lagging just a little bit behind the real life action, so in this case, it appears there is movement when there is none, and vice versa.

Continuity mistake: Phil sustains injuries to his face more than once in the movie. Every time the injuries disappear by the next scene. In one case the injury switches from the right side of his face to the left side between shots in the same scene.

A Lot Like Love (2005)

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the movie a liquid is thrown at the windshield of a car, completely obliterating the view through it. In the next shot, before another liquid is being thrown at it, the windshield can be easily seen through with only slight evidence of the previous liquid.

Down and Derby (2005)

Continuity mistake: In the basketball game near the start of the movie the scoreboard showed 4.5 seconds to the end of the game. Several seconds go by including a successful basket being made. Then a time out is called. The scoreboard clock should have already run out but still showed 2.5 seconds to go.

Assisted Living (2003)

Continuity mistake: Mrs. Pearlman is having a several minute telephone conversation with "Jeremy" while at the reception desk. The clock says 2:50 and stays there during the entire conversation (it doesn't move). Slightly later a shot shows the reception desk again and the clock now says 2:55. It was obviously unplugged, the hands being moved manually.

Assisted Living (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Tommy gets into his car to look for Mandy (a dog), his windshield is very dirty (as seen from the outside). At the beginning, the windshield is obviously dirty looking out the windshield from the inside. Later in the sequence, the windshield is again shown from the outside but it looks clean as can be. Afterward, shots from the inside looking out did not reveal a major amount of dirt (if any) on the windshield as was obvious earlier.

House Of D (2004)

Continuity mistake: About an hour into the movie, Tommy's face is injured by a shard of glass. The very next shot the injury is almost gone and in the next scene there is no evidence his face was ever injured.
