Fast & Furious (2009)

Corrected entry: In the last chase scene, Dom is being chased by bad guys. He is about to crash, and so he hijacks a Camaro to save himself. The Dodge Charger is then blown up upon impact. Then, when Dom is being transported on the prison bus, Brian is driving the same exact Charger. How did the Charger get fixed in such a short amount of time, let alone from being blown to pieces?

Correction: First of all, this is not necessarily immediately after that chase scene - trials usually take some time to get underway. Second, it's entirely conceivable that this could be another Charger.

Untraceable (2008)

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jennifer, the FBI agent, is at her motel, and Detective Boggs comes to have dinner, he knocks on the door. You can see there is a peephole in the door, however, Jennifer looks out the window. When she opens the door to let Boggs in, we can see why she looked out the window. There is no peephole on the outside of the door. When she closes the door behind him, you can once again see the peephole on the inside of the door.

Correction: The peephole on the outside might be blocked or obscured. Second, just because a door has a peephole doesn't mean one can't use a nearby window to get a better view - not terribly unlikely considering the villian was targeting her.

Stargate SG-1 (1997)

Brief Candle - S1-E9

Corrected entry: If O'Neill could return to his normal age at the end of the episode, the population of the foreign world would logically also return to their natural age, which would make their survival pretty unlikely. Made worse by the fact that O'Neill promises to send a team to check on them from time to time.

Correction: Not necessarly, as they clearly explained in the episode, O'Neill was affected differently as he *started* at a much old age, which made him age in a non-perminant way, while the native would "live a long and healthy life"

Stargate SG-1 (1997)

Show generally

Corrected entry: Season 9, episode "Ripple Effect" I believe. Sgt Walter Harriman shouts "Unauthorized offworld activation" instead of "Unscheduled offworld activation". "Unauthorized" is only for outgoing wormholes, and makes no sense in this context. It is unlikely to be a character mistake as he generally says "unscheduled" two or three times per episode.

Soylent Purple

Correction: Why could this not be a character mistake? People sometimes say the wrong thing inadvertently, so this actually makes Walter appear for "real" in a sense, so this would not be a production mistake.

Firewall (2006)

Corrected entry: At the end, when Jack rushes to the compound where the bad guys have his family hidden, he's doing at least 40km/hour before hitting one baddie and right after a shack head-on without his seat-belt on. The car even catches fire. He doesn't seem to get hurt one bit which is simply impossible.


Correction: Bleeding, having to regain himself, both in and after exiting the car, etc, is some how "not hurt" in your book?

Firewall (2006)

Corrected entry: Harrison Ford says he needs his daughter's iPod because it has an internal hard drive. The iPod in which he uses doesn't have an internal hard drive. It uses flash memory to store information.

Correction: Flash or magnetic, as far a computer it's connected to is concerned, it's a drive. Pluging any flash drive into a computer coems up as a removable hard drive. Saying "Hard Drive" in plain speech is not a movie mistake.
