General questions

Question: I am trying to find the name of a film I saw a number of years ago. The film is about a step-father who is trying to bring his step-son home for Christmas. The only things I can remember is that it takes them ages due to mishaps etc. along the way, and the step-father wears a ring on his pinky finger which when he punches people (many references to it throughout the film) it leaves an imprint in their forehead. Any thoughts?

Chosen answer: Dutch. Ed O'Neill stars as the step-dad. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101786/

Prison Break (2005)

Flight - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: After Pope enters Scofield's cell to see the escape hole, we see him standing outside the cell looking out at everyone throwing toilet tissue etc. If you watch closely right after we see a guy pulling his pillows toward him to tear up, it cuts to another inmate who is throwing stuff out as well. Only thing is, we see the cell door slides to the side slightly which would indicate that the cell doors where not locked. In the event of an escape, lockdown would happen immediately, with all cell doors locked with the prisoners inside their cells.

Trivia: During the scene in which we see Murtaugh talking to Hunsaker about his involvement with the Drug dealers. Hunsaker mentions 'Air America', a CIA front during the Vietnam. Air America was a film regarding this very thing staring Mel Gibson and filmed three years after Lethal Weapon.

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which the Tri Wizard cup is brought into the Great Hall and then Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, pay attention to Hagrid. We first see him move behind Snape and Moody who are in front of the window and standing directly behind them. Then he is further over to the right of the screen in front of the wall, and then back to his original position.

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the tournament, when we see all the platters break at the same time (wide shot showing all tables), we see Eddie's table is second from the left and three tables up. Notice the referee one table behind Eddie. In the close shot after the break, we now see that the referee, who was standing still in the wide shot, is now a table further down.

Continuity mistake: As Koulikov is shot while jumping the gap we see the blood spatter created lies along the dark line above the red writing. In the next shot it shows the spatter from another angle in which we see that it is now above the dark line where it was originally.

The Marine (2006)

Continuity mistake: Right after the gas station explosion scene we see Triton follow the truck in the police patrol car. During the scene we see that the patrol car gets repeatedly shot down the whole right side; including the front right tire being shot out as Triton approaches the truck on the left side. A few moments later right before both the truck and patrol car are about to make the jump we see that the patrol car has no bullet holes on the front right side anymore; and the tire is still intact.

Dante's Peak (1997)

Continuity mistake: When Harry and Rachel are making their way back to Rachel's house after the volcano's initial explosion we see them go down an alley to avoid all the traffic. As they move down the alley we see a pile of bricks fall from a roof and hit the front of the truck and window which causes large cracks in the glass on the passenger side. However, immediately after this we see the car and in all shots from the outside of the vehicle the cracks are no longer visible.
