Blood Work (2002)

Revealing mistake: When Clint Eastwood and detective Jay Winston are talking in her office she walks over to the blinds and touches the plastic piece that closes them but nothing happens, they stay the way they were. She does this twice.

American Pie (1999)

Continuity mistake: In the famous Nadia on the internet segment, there is a quick shot of the computer before Jim starts to get undressed. If you look on the desk next to the keyboard there is a gray t-shirt. It wasn't there when Jim was setting up the camera and Jim hasn't begun to undress yet. Obviously shot after Jim threw the shirt on the Web cam and it slid off.

American Pie (1999)

Trivia: I can't take credit of this one - it's on the DVD under Feature Commentary. In the scene when Jim (Jason Biggs) jumps over the hedge and falls, his real mother can be seen walking in the background.

Happy Gilmore (1996)

Trivia: This is a small tidbit, but I thought it was a little bit interesting. When Happy is talking to Gary Potter for the first time there is an older gentlemen standing in the crown behind them that has a portable chair. At one point he drops it and wants to bend down to get it, but he pauses as though the directors might get mad.

Happy Gilmore (1996)

Continuity mistake: Near the start we see Happy dropping off his Grandmother at a rest home. When they arrive Happy is driving on a walkway through the compound. Odd place to be driving don't you think?

Happy Gilmore (1996)

Continuity mistake: During the segment where the V.W. bug hits the media tower there are a few inconsistencies. First off when the bug hits the tower the pole wraps around the front end staying intact. In the next shot it shows the pole is broken and sitting on the hood. Then there's a shot where it shows a guy laying on the ground and the bug in the background. Now the bug has backed up about 4 feet and the pole is now not broken and only bent.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene at the motel where Matthew says to his mom (Erin Brockovich) "I'll bring you back some breakfast", look at the TV next to the door. You can see one of the film crew holding the boom microphone.

Trivia: In the diner when you see the real Erin Brockovich (the waitress), you can also see the real Ed Masry. He is sitting directly behind Julia Roberts and her baby. Another side note, look at the real Erin Brockovich's name-badge, it says Julia.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Clark starts to set up his Christmas lights, there is a scene where the ladder collapses. If you look closely you can see the wire coming out from under his jacket to keep him from falling forward.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation mistake picture

Character mistake: Clark has too many lights on his house causing the city to go dark. There is a scene where the power plant needs to boost their output. There is a close-up of a guy flipping the switch. Look at the way they spelled auxiliary - auxilliary.

Liar Liar (1997)

Trivia: When Jim Carrey goes to his son's school and reveals that he cannot lie, his son asks him some questions, one being "If I make this face will it get stuck that way?", while of course making a funny face. Then Jim Carrey responds with, "Uh Uh, in fact some people make a good living that way". Do you think the second part of the line is in reference to himself? I think so...

Trivia: Towards the beginning of the movie there is a close-up of the front window of Blast From the Past. If you look closely in the upper left hand corner you can see the jacket that Marty wore in the first movie. Also if you look on the right hand side you can see a Who Framed Roger Rabbit doll, another Robert Zemeckis film also starring Christopher Lloyd. There's also a Jaws video game.

Continuity mistake: At the Twin Pines mall during the chase scene with the Libyans, there is one shot where you get a great look at the driver as he's trying to start the engine. Later on you get another look at the driver as the van is moving and it's a totally different person.

Back to the Future Part II mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the famous court yard chase scene when Griff and gang crash through the courthouse windows, you can see in plain sight the reflection of cables and the mechanisms that held them in the air. [Corrected in 25th Anniversary edition.]

Visible crew/equipment: Just as Griff is about to crash through the front door of the court house after he is chasing Marty on the hover board, you can see someone (the director?) on some sort of crane in the reflection of the glass.
