Kelly's Heroes (1970)

Continuity mistake: At the end when confronting the last tank to get the bank doors open, Oddball, Big Joe, and Kelly line up in an alley as if they are directly facing the tank and start walking forward. In the next shot, which is wider and much farther away, you see that they are actually walking down a curved alley and can't see the tank until they come all the way around the corner.

The Naked Gun (1988)

Factual error: Frank hits some garbage cans with his car and the air bags deploy. He gets out of the car and another air bag deploys underneath the steering column and pushes up on the automatic gear shifter, which presumably makes the car start rolling. If the engine is off, a car will roll with the shifter in any position except park. Therefore, the shifter had to be in park when he got out, so pushing up on the shifter would not make it roll. (00:25:20)

Continuity mistake: In the scene that parodies Hannibal Lector in prison from "The Silence of the Lambs" (1991), we see a behind shot of Dr. Evil relieving himself in the toilet. When he turns around, you can see that his jumpsuit does not have a zipper in the crotch. (00:21:20)

Jaws (1975)

Continuity mistake: At the end when Brody is up in the crow's nest of the Orca waiting for Bruce to get close enough for him to shoot the tank in Bruce's mouth, notice that the crow's nest is sinking much faster than Bruce is moving towards him. At these rates, the boat would have fully sunken before the shark got close enough.

The Gauntlet (1977)

Continuity mistake: Ben, with the help of maybe one man, builds a crude but not easily made steel plated enclosure around the driver's compartment in about an hour. There is no way he could have done all that with one man and one blowtorch in an hour.

The Gauntlet (1977)

Continuity mistake: The tyres on the bus don't blow until the firing has stopped and the bus comes to a stop.

Continuity mistake: When the Witch melts, the broom is laying several inches from her dress. In the next shot, the broom is practically touching her dress. (01:26:20)

Goin' South (1978)

Continuity mistake: Henry Moon is too 'street smart' to have left gold dust on the mining tools for someone to find.

Revealing mistake: When the couple in the truck are driven off and down the side of the mountain the direction of the truck does not match the direction he steers the truck.

Plot hole: At the end of the movie, the sheriff is going home and gives his deputy and the mayor a ride home. They pass over a bridge with a sign that says 'Leaving Colusa County'. Surely they don't live outside the county?

Continuity mistake: When Doris Day is talking on the phone on the patio, Rock Hudson is hiding behind the shrubbery watching her. She turns her head around and looks his way and he ducks but she already would have seen him. (01:22:30)
