Trivia: Andie's two best friend's names in the movie - Jeannie and Michelle - are a nod to Jeannie Long and Michele Alexander, the two women who created the short novelty book the movie was based on.

The IT Crowd (2006)

Fifty-Fifty - S1-E3

Factual error: It doesn't make sense that Daniel would be researching classical music, or that he chooses Jen as his 'phone a friend' because of her apparent knowledge on the subject, because there are no topic categories on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' - the questions are entirely random, Daniel would have no way of knowing one of the questions he'd be asked would be about a particular topic.

Suggested correction: That's exactly why he was studying classical music, he didn't know what topics would be covered and he wanted to have a good knowledge of various topics. Since Jen appeared more knowledgeable in classical music than he did, he wanted her to be one of his phone-a-friend in case he came across a classical music question that stumped him. At the time, a contestant pre-arranged with producers 3 friends to be considered as a phone-a-friend. Daniel undoubtedly had 2 other friends or relatives that had greater knowledge on other topics than he did.

There's no way Daniel just happened to be studying classical music and seemingly nothing else, he didn't ask Jen about any other subject, the episode implied that Daniel was studying classical music as though it was a dead cert that a question would appear. This wouldn't be the case with Millionaire.

Nu (2003)

Question: At the end when the main character is in hospital, he speaks to a vision of his wife. He says something in Danish, but I can't find a subtitled version anywhere. Does anyone know what he says?

Chosen answer: In pursuit of the answer to your question, I have looked up and found screenwriter Peter Asmussen on Facebook, and directed your question to him. If and when he responds, and if nobody else has provided a translation by then, I will post an update here.

Question: Who exactly are the masked cult of which the Sheriff is a member, shown at the beginning when he unmasks and demands that Robin's father join them or die? If memory serves, the cult and the Sheriff's affiliation with them isn't referenced again at any point in the film. I know the Sheriff and the Witch are dark magic practitioners, but that was suggested to be a private thing between them in the bowels of the castle.

Purple_Girl

Chosen answer: The masked men weren't part of a cult, they were the Sheriff's soldiers, the same ones that Robin meets when he first returns home. They are just in hoods and masks to appear intimidating while trying to kill the noblemen, like Locksley.

The X-Files (1993)

The Unnatural - S6-E19

Plot hole: When Arthur wakes up on the bus, he sees an alien reflection in the window beside Josh, but it's not possible that the reflection could be seen at all - especially from the angle that Arthur first sees it - considering how much of the pillow is covering both Josh's face and the window. The pillow extends past Josh's face so he could lean on it as cushioning against the window, but somehow Arthur sees a full facial reflection.

The X-Files (1993)

The Unnatural - S6-E19

Plot hole: Josh Exley's 'real' face shouldn't be visible as a reflection on the window. It's not an illusion that he creates to fool people, whereby his real self could theoretically be seen in a reflective surface, but a complete physical change, as we've seen in many episodes of the X-files regarding the shape-changing abilities of the aliens. What his face appears to be while altered is essentially what it is, and the reflection should show as much.

The X-Files (1993)

The Unnatural - S6-E19

Plot hole: After Exley has gotten up after being hit by the ball, Dales notices green alien blood inside the glove where the back of Exley's head was resting. However, Exley was hit in the face, not the back of the head; not only was there no bleeding face wound while he was on the ground, but the glove was clean when Exley first gets up.

The X-Files (1993)

The Unnatural - S6-E19

Plot hole: When Arthur looks closely at the green alien blood on the baseball glove, he has no reaction to it, despite the continuous pattern in the show about the blood being incredibly toxic to humans, even from a distance. It should have badly hurt his eyes at the least.

The X-Files (1993)

Folie a Deux - S5-E19

Other mistake: When Mulder is on his knees in the cafeteria talking to the gunman, there are several shots where you can see the sides of his jacket hanging wide open because of his raised arms, which would make the gun on his belt easily visible to the gunman as he talks to him, but he somehow doesn't see it until he goes to take Mulder's phone.

Continuity mistake: Rumplestiltskin looks completely different in this movie than he did in the previous film Shrek The Third; Prince Charming momentarily talks to Rumplestiltskin in the tavern during the third film, and the character looks completely different, has a different voice and different demeanor.

Other mistake: When the Kingsmen are looking on-screen at the dossier of the princess, the attached photo of her is just a screenshot from the earlier scene where she is at the dining table with Valentine and the Swedish prime minister, just before she is imprisoned. Her photo was not taken at that point, and couldn't have been attached to her private file.

Revealing mistake: When we momentarily see the dead Brother Berengar submerged in the water tub, he breathes out a small bubble of air through the water.

Revealing mistake: When the dead monk is first pulled out of the blood vat, the others dump water on his face to see who it is, and the body's closed eyes flinch upon contact with the water.

Character mistake: When William finds the footprints on the ground after the body is found in the blood vat, he tells Adso that they were twice as deep as they should've been because the person who made them was weighed down by the weight of a body. Adso points out that the footprints were going away from the vats, to which William rebukes him and says that the man who made the prints was possibly dragging the body. If that was so, the footprints would not have been so deep, as the person moving the body would not have been weighed down nearly as much by dragging one along the ground. William is a learned investigator who shouldn't have made such an obvious mistake.

The Mother (2003)

Continuity mistake: When we first see May just after Paula punches her, she has a vivid purple bruise under her eye. She gets the train home that same day and when she is looking out of the window, the bruise can hardly be seen. Once she is home in bed that night, the bruise is vibrant purple again.

Book of Blood (2009)

Plot hole: Every ghost that we see in the house looks the way they did when they died, for example the girl from the film's intro is seen without skin on her face, which happened to her before she died. However, in the final scene when we see Simon's ghost joining them, he looks completely normal, when he should have had a throat slit wound and the carved markings on his skin. (01:31:20)

Nightwatch (1997)

Continuity mistake: The prostitute at the beginning of the film, who is attacked while on a table playing dead for her client, grabs the ceiling fan cord and pulls repeatedly to try and pull herself away from him. The fan, which is directly above her, comes loose and falls, yet when it crashes to the floor, it lands away from the far end of the table, when it should have landed almost directly on top of her.

Nightwatch (1997)

Factual error: When we see the detective pour the sample of Martin's sperm onto Joyce's body, the liquid is thick and bright white, like PVA glue; however the detective acquired the sample several hours earlier, and ejaculate loses that appearance/consistency almost immediately (30 minutes at most), becoming thinner and almost transparent.

Frasier (1993)

The Doctor Is Out - S11-E3

Continuity mistake: After Gil comes into Frasier's booth to talk following the 'outing' caller, Frasier begins packing his briefcase, then shuts it. Seconds later, it is still open and he shuts it again.
