Matchstick Men (2003)

Other mistake: As Roy meets his daughter, he gets out of his car and we see the car door left open as he runs towards her. Near the end of their conversation, the camera focuses on Roy, and through the space between his body and right arm, you can see the side view mirror indicating the door is now shut without anyone touching it. (00:26:50)

The Village (2004)

Revealing mistake: There are several scenes in the movie where the shadows of characters can only be created by using spotlights. (i.e. When Lucius and Ivey are walking back to Ivey's house after Lucius has crossed into Covington Woods, look on the left of the screen at the house, you will see the shadow of a chair, and the shadows of Lucius and Ivey. Also, when Ivey is sitting in Covington Woods under her tarp after the two boys have abandoned her, the spotlight is coming from the right of the screen.).

Factual error: Near the end of the film, after Ditch and Krista use the reserve parachute, they fall in a windfarm. The windmills are spinning fairly slowly. After the fight Ditch pulls Pinkwater's parachute out. The wind pulls Pinkwater back towards the fan. Before he gets chopped up there is a shot of the fan blades spinning very fast and powerfully. A light breeze would not cause these blades to spin in this fashion. A hurricane would be needed for those blades to chop up a human.

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, when the Cadillac Allante is falling, watch closely and you will see it explode just before it hits the ground.
