Coffin Punch - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: Jamie and Adam are shooting at Police badges to see which one would potentially stop a bullet. When they get to the third badge, it is held up to the camera.

Bachelor Party (1984)

Continuity mistake: When the hotel manager watches the piano collapse, you can see through the window that it is dark outside. The scene then cuts to the hotel lobby where you can see daylight through a side window, then the front doors.

Continuity mistake: When Richard is chasing Maddy and the old couple on Morris's bike, you can see that the handle bars are bent on the left hand side. As the chase scene goes on, the handlebars change from being bent to straight several times. (01:15:20)

Mr Manchester

Other mistake: When Morris is chasing the ambulance on his bicycle, he gets pushed/bumped towards the picnic table. As he tumbles over the table into the water you can see handle bars attached to the bicycle, however whilst Morris is flying through the air (separately to the bicycle), he is holding a second set of handle bars in his hands. (00:42:50)

Suggested correction: He grabbed onto the handrail bar on the back of the ambulance. That bar broke off, which is why he went straight when the ambulance turned (and the why he has a look of surprise on his face). It's that bar he's seen holding, not handlebars.

Planes (2013)

Continuity mistake: Dusty Crophopper is on the USS Flysinhower being brought back up to flight deck on the aircraft lift. At this point the lift is fully surrounded by a raised barrier (poles and rope/chain). In the next close up shot (before the lift reaches the flight deck) the barrier has disappeared. The barrier should only retract into the deck of the lift once it reaches the flight deck (and not before) as it's to stop people and aircraft going over the edge.

Mr Manchester

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Thunderbolt and Lightfoot are in the car with the crazy driver. The car goes over the embankment and as it flips you can see a wheel break off. A short time later they both drive off in the same car, with the wheel attached again.

The Hard Way (1991)

Other mistake: When Moss confronts the party crasher who has a gun to the arms dealer's head. The party crasher then pours gasoline all over the pumps and Moss shouts "Don't shoot, you'll blow this place up, I'm standing in the shit". As the scene eventually cuts back to Moss on a long shot, you can see that the floor is dry and he's not actually stood in the gasoline. (01:20:00 - 01:21:00)

Continuity mistake: During the film McCaleb asks Buddy if a cheque is okay. Buddy replies yes, but to endorse it as Jasper Noone, his real name. When McCaleb later hands over the cheque, it is written out to Buddy Noone.

Copland (1997)

Other mistake: In the scene where Sly and his female partner are using the speed gun, a speeding car drives past. The female cop is pointing the speed gun towards the sky and not at the car, so it would never give a reading. (00:19:30)

American Reunion (2012)

Continuity mistake: Just after the fight scene outside Stifler's house, Jim is talking to Michelle, his dad and the guys. Jim is seen throughout wearing the leather bondage outfit, with a collar that contains three rings. The rings keep changing positions around Jim's neck throughout the scene. (01:17:00 - 01:20:00)

Feds (1988)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Zuckerman is thrown to the floor in the gym and handcuffed, you can hear the handcuff ratchet click as it's placed and closed on her wrist. As the other agent moves away, you can see that the handcuff is open and not actually closed around her wrist. (00:31:00 - 00:31:50)

Stroker Ace (1983)

Other mistake: At the beginning of the film, the car with three wheels enters into the car park of the race track. You can see where the brake disc has gouged out the tarmac on an earlier take.

The Last Gamble - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: In the final con scene at the private gambling club, Danny and Mikey are arguing about handing over the money to the guy conned at the very start of the show.
