Revealing mistake: Just as Neo begins fighting in the "Burly Brawl," take a look at the Smith to the right of him (he puts his hand on Neo's shoulder I think). The face is not Hugo Weaving's but the face of the stunt person. Looks like the effects crew forgot to put Weaving's face on that guy.

Family Guy (1999)

The King Is Dead - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: During the end of Peter's "revised" version of "The King and I" right after the scene where Brian and Peter kung-fu fight, the scene transitions to the next scene where a bunch of girls with bikinis on are surrounding Peter. During the transition, a girl appears out of nowhere. She is blonde and is leaning on Peter.

Trivia: The breathing in the movie, according to Kubrick's daughter, was actually done by Kubrick himself.

Visible crew/equipment: After the scene in the car factory when Anderton drives up to Hineman's place, he parks his car and opens the door. When he opens the door, you can very easily see a cameraman bent down reflected in the car door.

Audio problem: In the scene where Michael Sullivan robs his first bank before the montage and is in the manager's office, Michael offers him a little present. Sullivan says, "Call it a handling charge," and the camera is focused on the manager, but the words aren't matching what Michael Sullivan is mouthing.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Visible crew/equipment: When Jules is talking to Marcellus and describing what would happen if Jimmy's wife came home and found them all with a dead body, we see what would possibly happen in a scene where the camera follows the wife to where they are carrying the dead body. You can sometimes see the camera shadow on the walls when the camera follows her.

Psycho (1960)

Trivia: In the opening scene, Marion Crane is wearing a white bra because Alfred Hitchcock wanted to show her as being "angelic." After she has taken the money, the following scene has her in a black bra because now she has done something wrong and evil. Similarly, before Marion steals the money, she has a white purse; after she's stolen the money, her purse is black.

Audio problem: In the theater, there are some times when you can hear Crow speak, but his lips don't move. One instance is when Crow asks Mike, "Can I have a car like that?" Mike replies and when Crow answers back, his lips don't move for that one either.

Revealing mistake: After the second movie sign, when everyone gets into the theater and sits down, there's a very obvious cut, as all the characters cut immediately from the position that they sat down in to a completely different position.

Trivia: In some scenes, you can see that R. Lee Ermey does not move one of his arms. That's because he got in a car accident that broke several of his ribs. Being the strong person that he was, he forced himself to not pass out and wait for help to arrive.

Revealing mistake: Throughout this movie and Part III, whenever there is a special effect, like two Biffs in one scene, the scenes with the flying cars, and basically whenever an actor is playing three or four roles at the same time, if you look very carefully, you can see the picture flash ever so slightly repeatedly. It looks almost as if the picture is throbbing a bit. Might be more visible if viewed on the DVD.

Trivia: It was the highest-grossing R-rated movie ever in North America until March 2004 when "The Passion of the Christ" passed it. In the history of R-rated films, it has the shortest reign as grossing champion when it held that title for nearly five months (after it passed "Beverly Hills Cop"). However, it is still the highest-grossing R-rated movie worldwide, taking over 100 million dollars more than The Passion of the Christ.

Factual error: In the song "It's Easy, mmmkay", Mr. Macky tells the children "With bitch drop the t 'cause 'bich' is Latin for generosity". Actually, there's no such word as 'bich' in the Latin language (the most common translation of generosity is 'magnanimitas').

Gladiator (2000)

Factual error: The opening battle is wildly inaccurate. The Roman legions were trained to fight as a regimented force, and to maintain formation for mutual support. In the film, the formation collapses instantly upon contact with the enemy. Further, the Roman legions used spears called pila. Doctrine called for them to be thrown while the enemy closed. The Romans would then draw their swords and fight, while remaining in formation. Though the Romans are shown holding their pila in the opening scenes, they are never used against the barbarians, and we see no pila-riddled shields and/or corpses in the background.

Trivia: Throughout this movie, Gene Wilder barely stifles genuine laughter. An easy spot to find this is when Igor bites the fur of Madeline Kahn's mink. Wilder says "Stop that." and can be easily seen laughing.
