Trivia: In the film, the German commander, played by Robert Shaw, is ecstatic about using the new Tiger tanks in the attack. However, Jochen Peiper, the real commander Shaw is based on, did not want to use Tigers as they were too slow and used up huge amounts of fuel. Peiper preferred to use Panthers and MK IV tanks, but was pressured to use the Tigers for political, propaganda and morale purposes.

Continuity mistake: After inspecting the new Tiger tanks, Col. Hessler approaches Gen. Koehler, smiling. The next quick shot of Hessler shows him just starting to smile.

Continuity mistake: The close up shot of Herman's hand shows him removing his hand after activating the switch to the secret passage, but the long shot of him and Grandpa shows his hand still on the switch.

Continuity mistake: When Lily is introducing Marilyn to Cousin Grace, Grace's hand holds a biscuit in her hand which changes position as the scene cuts.

Revealing mistake: When Lily throws the ticking apple bomb out of the ship's portal and it explodes, it is dark outside as the scene takes place at night. Stock footage of a depth charge explosion shows daylight.

Continuity mistake: Lily's hand is close to Grandpa's left hand in the long view of it growing fur in the long shot, but the close up shot of Grandpa's hand does not show her hand near his.

The Patriot (2000)

Continuity mistake: During the final battle scene with Col. Tavington, a close up shot shows Ben Martin holding the last lead ball cast from his son's toy soldiers close to the muzzle of his pistol, about three inches away. The next longer shot of him shows him holding the ball about ten inches from the pistol.

Continuity mistake: When Lily is riding her horse alongside Herman in the Dragula, the background terrain changes whether the scene is a close up of Herman or a long shot of him.

Audio problem: Each time cousin Freddie stomps his feet on the dirt floor while on guard duty, a very loud stomping on a hard surface is heard, not a soft thud that would be heard on on a dirt floor.

Revealing mistake: The stuntman playing Grandpa is obvious when Herman jumps into his arms after scaring the two guys carrying the coffin.

Tropic Thunder (2008)

Stupidity: After Alpa Chino and Lazarus force the Flaming Dragon goons to the ground, neither man bothers to collect the goons' AK-47's which are loaded with real bullets (and lying very close to the goons themselves) while Chino and Lazarus' weapons only have blanks.

Tropic Thunder (2008)

Stupidity: During the gun battles with the "Tropic Thunder" actors, not one of the Flaming Dragon soldiers notice there is something strange about how the actors are firing their weapons (i.e, in the air, over the heads of the Flaming Dragons, etc.) or that there is no damage inflicted when the actors are shooting at or near objects in the area. Those two factors alone would tip off the Flaming Dragons that blanks were being used in the weapons of the actors.

A Kind of a Stopwatch - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: After McNulty freezes the office, a co-worker is getting water from a faucet, and the water is frozen in motion, but right before McNulty unfreezes the office, a female co-worker is in the background at the faucet with no water coming out of the faucet.

The Invaders (1967)

Summit Meeting: Part I - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: David Vincent's view of the lieutenant offering the secretary a cigarette shows the lieutenant's right little finger extended (sign of him being an Invader) but the next quick shot shows the lieutenant's little finger retracted.

Visible crew/equipment: When Vice Chancellor Alquist walks to his Mercedes, camera crew and equipment are reflected in the chrome of the vehicle's engine grill.
