Revealing mistake: The American and Russian space agencies are watching the launches of their own supposedly different rockets (split screen). It is clear that the pictures they are watching simultaneously on the monitors is the same footage, but reversed on one screen. (01:13:30)

Blood Work (2002)

Continuity mistake: McCaleb sees the suspect parked across the street in a car, he then takes the shotgun from the trunk of his car. Detective Winston then exits the car and is seen at the rear of the car saying "You're killing me here, what's going on?". McCaleb then shoots up the suspects car. At the end of the scene Detective Winston is then seen getting out of the car for a second time, despite the fact that she has already got out of it once already. (01:14:00 - 01:15:20)

Revealing mistake: When Madeline Smith (The Italian agent credited as Beautiful Girl) emerges from the wardrobe / closet, she embraces Roger Moore. He then uses his magnetic Rolex to pull down the zipper on the back of her dress. If you look closely, you can see the cable/wire under dress pulling the zipper down. (00:11:20 - 00:12:00)

Revealing mistake: Navarro is climbing on the outside of the train, the overhead shot shows very wide gaps between the plates welded to the windows. When the shot changes to a side-on view, the gaps are considerably smaller. This is seen several times throughout the quick scene changes. (01:47:00 - 01:49:30)

Hooper (1978)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Cully injects Sonny in his back, you can see that just just after he pushes the plunger, the spring mechanism moves on the inside of the syringe.

The King's Speech (2010)

Factual error: Whilst at Sandringham estate in 1936 Bertie is waiting for the Tiger Moth plane to land. This particular plane (G-ANFM) was not built until 1941. (00:38:50 - 00:39:40)

Mr Manchester

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Kirsty is in the Porsche at the beginning of the film, the car flips whilst on the gravel car park. You can see the device (log or metal rod) that helps flip the car. As the car rolls you can also see the hole in the bottom of the car where the flipping device had come from. (00:05:00)

Continuity mistake: Highway and Choozoo are in the bar when Little Mary Jackson tells them that their battalion has gone on full alert. They both leave the bar and it is night time (also a cut away clip of Aggie being driven past in a convertible car shows darkness). The scene then cuts to the barracks and throughout the scene, you can see through the thin curtains that it is daylight outside. The scene then cuts back to the parade ground and it is night time again. (01:04:00 - 01:06:00)
