Suggested correction: Well, yes and no, or rather "no and maybe." The godfather's car was parked far enough from the stairs for another car to park closer, between Pazzo's car and house. And it's what happens here. However I do think there could be a continuity issue with one of the exterior shots when Pazzo's car seems to have been moved quite a bit off position compared to before. The mistake could be there but not as big as it appears to be (I kinda find it hard to judge due to the angle by how much really the car is off position, even, since it's a significantly different one from before).

A Fine Mess (1986)

Continuity mistake: When Spence's brother in-law almost crashes into Dennis' girlfriend's car, he's driving straight down the road and she makes a left from the intersection to cut in front of him, but when the camera angle changes back to the inside of the brother in-law's car the intersection that he should have just passed is nowhere to be seen.

A Fine Mess (1986)

Continuity mistake: After Dennis punches Spence in the nose the piano starts playing and Dennis just pushes it to turn it off even though every time they had to turn it on and off before then they had to use the on/off switch. (01:01:40)

Suggested correction: I took it as a very movie-like "when you don't know how to fix/start/stop/do stuff to a machine, just hit it" moment. Thing is though, just mere seconds before in the same scene, Howie Mandel bumped against the piano, hitting harder than it does to stop it, and it kept going, so I do think that this entry has some merit.

This correction is unnecessary. It validates the original mistake at the end.

The original contribution points out something that, especially in movies, happens a lot: hit some device and it stops. Personally I don't see it as a mistake and I would have not reported it. But I do think it's inconsistent, that it stopped that second time and not the first. I could have submitted a new mistake entry but I did not find it necessary, or a request to change the entry's wording, but I think it is best to keep the original contribution and present a possible explanation and suggestion of a possible, slightly different, inconsistency in the same scene.

And none of that is needed. Explaining why a mistake happens is never a valid correction. And explaining the mistake in a different way isn't needed either (although one can change the wording of a mistake if one feels the mistake isn't clear enough).

Bishop73

Ach, sorry that I have not been clear enough, I am not explaining the mistake. "He gives that old machine a smack and it stops. It's not a mistake, it happens" would have been more clear and more apropos to a field called "corrections", I know.

A Fine Mess (1986)

Audio problem: When Spence jumps into his car to escape Binkey at the racetrack, he just jumps in the car, puts it in gear and drives off. He never started the car up: the car is not shown during a brief cut to the actress, but there is no start-up noise. (00:07:30)

A Fine Mess (1986)

Continuity mistake: When Dennis and Spence are trying to outrun the cops in the car that Spence stole from the racetrack, the camera shot from the inside shows them driving on a regular street with the yellow lines and everything but the camera shots from the outside show them driving on blacktop streets with no lines whatsoever.
