New this month Suggested correction: Not a mistake. Frank never walks off the first time.

Perhaps the wrong phrase was used. He actually moves away from the front part of the seat to the left and out of shot of the camera. When the shot is shown of Frank's wife rescuing fuller, Frank repeats his actions of walking away from the front part of the seat and moving to his left. There is no reasonable reason he would move back in front of the chair for the purpose of repeating this action. Especially since his wife is trying to rescue Fuller and would not permit Frank to return to his original position. So the mistake is valid, just an error in wording.

Home Alone (1990)

Visible crew/equipment: When the pizza guy arrives at the start, as he gets out of his car a stage light is reflected in the paintwork. This cannot be the street light as that is a more yellow and dull reflection, further along the car.

Continuity mistake: When John is fighting the gang men at the start we see him crouching over the unconsious body of a thug. John then looks up and dives out the way of the speeding car, however the unconsious thug has disappeared when the taxi hits John's car.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: The damage to John's car at the start is constantly changing. For example, he reverses into a car and smashes the rear of his car up. A few seconds later it's in perfect condition.

Continuity mistake: When John arrives at the Continental, we have an overhead shot showing two doormen to John's left. Camera changes to behind John and now those two doormen are suddenly talking to someone in a blue suit.

Continuity mistake: When Santino places the metal item on the table after saying John will always be that man, there is a white item on the table next to it. As John pushes it away, the white item has disappeared.

Revealing mistake: When John is escaping at the start, he throws a sharp left when a taxi appears ahead of him. Just before he takes the turn, we see a view from in the car. In this shot, you can see skid marks already ahead of him exactly where he's about to skid.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When John gets out of his car at the very start, he is on a zebra crossing. When he gets back in, the car is no longer on the crossing. It's hard to tell, but the car has moved.

John Wick (2014)

Continuity mistake: The first time John's alarm goes off at 0600, it is early moments of dawn. A little while later in the movie we see John being woken up by the puppy at 0600 and it is brighter, almost mid morning kind of light.

John Wick (2014)

Other mistake: When we see John's wife collapse in front of the bride, just as the camera cuts out of this little cut scene, the camera wobbles very noticeably. Almost as if someone had knocked it.

John Wick (2014)

Revealing mistake: When John takes the sledgehammer to the concrete floor, the floor wobbles with the first hit, showing it's not a real floor.

Suggested correction: How is this a mistake? We know it's not a real floor. That's the whole point. He put a fake floor over the hidden compartment.

Jason Hoffman

It's not meant to be a fake floor - when he retired he poured concrete over the stash, presumably to dissuade him to ever come out of retirement casually due to the work involved in digging it out. If it wobbled so easily due to being fake he wouldn't have needed a sledgehammer.

It's meant to be a couple of inches of concrete. I just watched the scene again closely and it moves exactly as a couple of inches of concrete would when being hit with a sledgehammer.

Jason Hoffman

It's more than just a couple of inches of concrete and looking at the floor there is no patch (like we see in number 2 when he fills it in) Meaning the whole floor is one solid bit of concrete.

A Demon

Maybe no patch means the whole floor was poured at the same time, with a shallower area over his stash.

Phixius

Even if the concrete is shallow over his stash, the floor still wouldn't wobble as it does.

A Demon

Dissuade him to ever come out of retirement? If he really wanted that, he would have moved to some tropic paradise and left his guns, and coins behind. Instead, he kept them in his house. The concrete wasn't there to keep him from them, it was there to keep others, and fire, from getting them. The best gun vault imaginable. I do agree with you about the wobble. I saw it immediately the first time I watched the movie. It was a blooper. The entire basement floor wasn't supposed to be false, just that section of it so the rest of the floor wouldn't wobble. To prove the point, set a video camera down on your basement floor then whack a spot with a sledge 6 or 8 feet away. The camera might jiggle but the floor won't.

Revealing mistake: Just as John grabs the dog after being attacked, the dog is added post production. This is identifiable as his little finger goes through the dog.

Factual error: John and Iosef are seen pumping their own gas near the start. All gas stations in New Jersey have attendants.
