Spy Game (2001)

Plot hole: Muir is retiring after 30 years with the C.I.A. You would think considering his years of service and the people he was working with (especially Troy) it would have already been known that he had been married only once and not four times like he was letting on.

Mr. Bean (1989)

The Trouble With Mr. Bean - S1-E8

Trivia: Up until this episode we have never seen the driver of the blue Reliant that's always had the misfortune of running into Mr. Bean. In this episode that same car is parked in front of the dentist office which is then pushed back by Bean's car. It is possible then that the unseen driver could either be the woman with small child or the patient who leaves just before Bean meets the dentist.

Sing (2016)

Continuity mistake: When the gang arrived for their first day of closed rehearsals the clock on the front of the theater says about 8:30, but just a few minutes later when Buster goes to get the power back on the clock now says about 11:50.

Sing (2016)

Other mistake: Considering how famous Nana Noodleman is it's odd that everyone is surprised that she's still alive.

Outland (1981)

Stupidity: When the shuttle arrives with the assassins, O'Niel is shown loading a shotgun, then he carries that gun when he runs to his office. When he leaves his office again to confront the assassins he grabs another shotgun from the locker. Why didn't he just grab the gun he walked in with?

Revealing mistake: When Bean is driving down the street with the TV on his car, the sign for the store on the right is backwards, revealing a flipped shot.

Eraser (1996)

Stupidity: There is absolutely no reason for the cabin shootout scene. The bad guys already know that Krueger is hiding Leigh, instead of a pointless shootout and five dead guys the bad guys could have simply forced Krueger at any point to tell them where she is or send a few men to tail Krueger to her.

U.S. Marshals (1998)

Plot hole: After the police arrest Roberts he's flagged for a federal warrant, but Lamb and Barrows don't show up to inquire about him until long after the plane crash. Shouldn't they have been there to pick Roberts up at the police station instead of being sent immediately to a federal penitentiary?

Slap Shot (1977)

Plot hole: During the intermission break of the championship game, Joe shouts about scouts from the NHL in the stands waiting to sign up the team. But Reggie is mystified about this before sending his team out to get rough again. Why doesn't the coach of his own team know about people from the NHL waiting to sign his players up?

Slap Shot (1977)

Plot hole: When the lie about the team moving to Florida hits the public, nobody other than Ned Braden bothers to look into it. Even Joe, the general manager never asks where it came from, which would be something he would know about before the press did.

Continuity mistake: When Freddy pours the popcorn out of the box at the beginning of the movie he sits the box down at an angle with the flaps open. But when he and Frank come back up stairs from the basement the box is back in place and the flaps are closed.

Revealing mistake: When the guys are putting the bench in front of the door to keep Freddy inside the Chapel, the bench lands on Ernie's foot and breaks it. The bench never even touches his foot.

Trivia: Unknown at the time, two future Star Trek references are made in this film. The director, Robert Wise, would go on to direct Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and at the end of the film when discussing the cloud seeding, a caption on the video monitor reads out "Nimbus 3". This was the name of the planet on which Sybok takes prisoners in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.

Die Hard (1988)

Other mistake: After Powell frantically radios in his distress call, other police cars converge on the street in front of Nakatomi Plaza, blocking off both sides of the street. But when McClane grapples down the building using the firehose, you can see traffic on the street below and none of them are police.

Trivia: During the opening credits, when the Earth rotates from the bottom of the screen to the left, listen carefully to the music. It is the same music played just after the Klingon ship goes back in time to 1986 in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (right after the heads of the Enterprise crew morph on screen).

Hard Rain (1998)

Continuity mistake: When we first see the horn on the dam it is a dark rusty brown color, but when the dam finally breaks it is a bright yellow.

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: When Picard looks out the window of the Dixon Hill office he sees the cars passing by each other, the traffic light is right in front of the window as if the entire building is not only in the middle of the street but only one story high.

Broken Arrow (1996)

Continuity mistake: When the humvees are racing across the desert they both go over a cliff at the same time, as they do they are just facing each other at the front but when they fly over the camera they are fully straight.

Hard Rain (1998)

Continuity mistake: When Tom hides the money at the bottom of the "Portman" crypt, the water has almost reached the name on the crypt. But later when Jim forces Tom to bring the money back up the level of water has barely risen any in the last few hours.

Star Trek (1966)

The Menagerie (2) - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: The shot of the castle on Rigel VII seems to be what Pike sees through his eyes, but in the next shot he himself is in the shot.
