The Deal (2005)

Factual error: Gordon Brown is played by an actor who is 6ft 3in, while Tony Blair is played by an actor significantly shorter at 5ft 9in. Tony Blair is in real life fractionally taller than Gordon, at 6ft and 5ft 11in respectively.

Batman Forever (1995)

Other mistake: When Batman puts the lit torch to the cable and the cable breaks; the vault goes back into exactly the same place where the helicopter lifted it out from; connected via a grapple that Batman put through the wall. Ignoring the logistics of how this would be possible, it tightens the grapple, which surely, with the weight of the vault, would have ripped itself away from the wall.

The Langoliers (1995)

Audio problem: Another audio problem in the same scene: As Brian Engle is approaching the cockpit, there is some more muttering, presumably in this order (using actors initials: MLC: Right, Good God. PW: Is he (muffled) MLC: I know, I seem real strange. He's outta control.

The Langoliers (1995)

Continuity mistake: When Craig Toomey jumps out and starts screaming at the blind girl, in the first shot he is holding the knife at shoulder level. In the following shot it is raised to eye level.

Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane? (1) - S1-E8

Plot hole: When Maria Jackson is running away from the alien creature, she turns left into a metal fencing. The camera shows this seconds before she runs into it, banging on it in frustration. This does not make any sense. She saw the metal fencing, so why did she continue to run into it? Why did she not turn right instead and along the park?

Alien 3 (1992)

Question: Towards the end of the film after Ripley refuses to give herself up and tells "No" to Bishop and closes the gate, Bishop and the men in white go back down the stairs. As we cut to the long shot, we see one of the men in white running up to the metal fence and grabbing hold of it as though he is trying to climb over it carrying what appears to be a shoulder mounted camcorder. He is not part of the production crew because he is wearing the same costume as the other actors, but this is not dwelled upon so it seems like a pointless prop. Was this to add a similar feel to the previous films of recording footage on the planets?

Chosen answer: While no details are given in the film, he's presumably present to document their interactions with Ripley for future reference - this is, after all, a very important moment for the company, where they believe that they may finally get their hands on the specimen that they've been waiting for for years.

Father Ted (1995)

And God Created Woman - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: As Father Crilly is shouting at Father Jack "No, not your room, not your room." to get up out of the spare bed, watch closely and as Father Ted strikes him in the face, notice that his hand doesn't even touch his face, and his hand stops several inches away from his face, using only his reaction and the sound of a punch to illustrate a punch at all. (00:18:15)

Continuity mistake: As Pink runs towards the TV screaming, he raises his guitar several times to smash the TV screen in. The effect of having it done 4 times is probably to add effect, but Pink makes four blows, look closely and you will see that the guitars change at each strike. First we see that the guitar used is a two tone red & black on the first blow, then on the second, just a black one is used then switches back to the red and black one on the third and forth. Different TVs were used in different takes, because how he strikes the TV are different.

Alien (1979)

Trivia: When the Android is attacking Officer Ripley, the first scene Ripley was sprayed with glycerine to give the idea they were sweating. However, the later scenes of the fight this glycerine was omitted because she found out she was allergic to it.

Trivia: Throughout the 9 months of making the film, Edward Furlong's voice had got deeper, so they had to artificially pitch his voice higher to ensure it maintained a constant pitch throughout the film.

Titanic (1997)

Other mistake: Several actors/props/areas etc. are well known in this area to be flipped. For example, Billy Zane, who plays "Cal" in this film is right-handed, yet in some areas he uses his left-hand when it's not dominating and natural. (Noticeably, when he is chasing Jack Dawson down the grand stairs, he is holding his gun in his left hand, when it would make more sense to hold his gun in his right hand.) (02:13:00)
