eXistenZ (1999)

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the film we see the Seminar Leader start to write eXistenZ on the board. We see him write the letter 'e', but then the camera changes and he starts to write the letter 'X'. Notice that the letter 'e' has changed from how he originally wrote it. Then when he finishes writing eXistanZ the camera switches position again and the writing has all changed the look again. Most noticeable by the crossing of the letter 't'. As we saw him write it, then cross portion was much higher than in the wider shot.

eXistenZ (1999)

Continuity mistake: When Ted and Alegra are escaping from the seminar we see them in the car driving through the countryside. Ted's phone rings and Alegra grabs it, throws it out the window which she then shuts. A few moments later, Alegra informs Ted that anyone can use his phone to track where they are. The camera then changes angle to face Alegra, and the window is now open again.

Elf (2003)

Revealing mistake: While we see Buddy drinking the entire bottle of Coke, it is quite obvious that he is not actually drinking it. Buddy has his lips firmly sealed around the end of the bottle and gulps down the entire lot. If he was drinking it, the bottle would have caved in as no air was getting inside. It was not even possible for him to blow air from his nose back into the bottle due to the fact that he is continuously gulping.

Blackball (2003)

Factual error: All UK driving test instructors must wear a yellow reflective waistcoat or jacket while instructing someone during their driving test. This was still true in 2002 when the film was shot.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie during the big shootout, we see Martin and Grocer shoot the two cops as they come through the doors. When they stop shooting we can see that Grocer is out of ammo (the sliders on his guns are back) and Martin is out of ammo only on the gun in his left hand (our right) as the slider on the right hand gun is still forward. Yet when he turns to face Grocer, both guns are empty and the sliders are back.

Revealing mistake: When Fred and George pass on the Marauder's Map to Harry, we see the map start to reveal itself. As it does Harry starts to read "Messrs Mooney, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs." Harry reads the word Messrs before it even appears on the page.

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which Uncle Vernon's sister Marge is turned into a balloon we see her floating out of the conservatory. A second before she is blown out the door we see from the shot looking into the conservatory that Aunt Petunia is to the right of the conservatory doors inside the dining room. When the shot changes, she is now standing in the doorway to the conservatory.

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which the guy is bitten by the rattlesnake we see that the rattlesnake's top fangs pierce the guy just to the right hand side of his top lip. Then when the snake is pulled off and we see him lying on the floor, the bite marks are now in the centre of his cheek, and there are no bite marks for the lower fangs of the snake although they also pierced the guy's neck.
