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.

Assisted Living (2003)

Continuity mistake: During the coverage of a bingo game, the caller said B-8. Immediately the shot changed to a player covering N-38.

House Of D (2004)

Factual error: During a panoramic shot while moving down the street in New York City, a modern-looking Starbucks was shown. It was 1973 at this point in the movie. There were no Starbucks stores in 1973 except one in Seattle. See http://www.starbucks.com/aboutus/timeline.asp.

Fever Pitch (2005)

Continuity mistake: Ben is lounging around and watching a Sox game on TV. The first shot showed a lot of stains on his shirt. Between shots the stains vary, with at least one shot with hardly any stains at all.

Continuity mistake: A box was put on a hand truck. The next shot shows Mr. Winters putting a very large box on the hand truck. The first box had mysteriously disappeared.

The Pacifier (2005)

Other mistake: When Shane crashes the car through a fence (or wall), it appears that the car sustained absolutely no damage on the front (or anywhere else as far as I could tell). Later, there seemed to be very little damage to the car as a result of a chase scene where the car hit things, just a relatively minor scrape or two.

Continuity mistake: When Terry and Emily? are having a discussion (at a window) there is a boom-box or other piece of electronic equipment to the right of the window. In subsequent shots during the conversation the equipment has mysteriously disappeared. Also, the on-air light at the radio station is continuously lit. The on-air light indicates a live microphone and should be "off" when the microphone is off. You would think those in the entertainment industry would know this.

Off the Map (2003)

Factual error: Near the end of the movie a Greyhound bus is shown. The route through Taos to El Paso is served by T.N.M. & O. T.N.M. & O. was purchased by Greyhound many years ago. However, the buses were marked with T.N.M. & O. as of a couple years ago when I rode the bus from Taos to Albuquerque. As of today greyhound.com still shows it as being served by T.N.M. & O., not Greyhound.

Are We There Yet? (2005)

Other mistake: Throughout the movie large footprints of heffalumps are shown. However, when the heffalumps bound around, they never create any footprints of any kind.

Continuity mistake: Mr. Krank's coat was totally drenched by a car going through a puddle and it was completely wet. Subsequently, in the same scene, the coat was only partially wet, having quite a bit of dry area.

Ray (2004)

Factual error: When Ray is being interviewed at KCOH the "on the air" sign is illuminated. When the microphone is turned off, the sign stays illuminated. The "on the air" sign means that the microphone is on, not that the station itself is on the air.

Word Wars (2004)

Factual error: Near the beginning a Scrabble rack is shown containing tiles with the words "GET A FORD." Scrabble racks are limited to 7 tiles and this is 8. This rack cannot exist in Scrabble.

Suggested correction: Hi. The rack in question was showing an advertisement from the 1950s which featured a Scrabble rack. So, while it is true that GET A ford would not be a legal Scrabble rack...it wasn't from an actual game.
