Continuity mistake: During the "running game" segment, Cross gets a cell phone that uses an earpiece and is told to keep it (for further instructions). When he gets to the subway loading platform, he gets another call, but he is not wearing the earpiece while he listens to the new instructions. Soon after that he is shown wearing the earpiece again while he listens.

F/X (1986)

Audio problem: After the man is pushed into the pond, the main characters run away. While they are running, pay attention to the panting noises made by the woman. They do not match her mouth.

Continuity mistake: Darby calls a man who is alone in a hotel room (the one who gets shot soon thereafter). When the man hangs up the phone, his shower starts running almost immediately, which means he would have to have been teleported to the bathroom to accomplish this so quickly. (00:57:00)

Road House (1989)

Audio problem: Dalton has just been awakened by a young woman bringing breakfast into his bedroom. Pay attention to his mouth when he moans. The first few moans appear to have been dubbed in, as his mouth is closed, yet they sound like they would have to be made with an open mouth. (00:20:45 - 00:31:05)

The Net (1995)

Spellbound (1945)

Continuity mistake: During Ingrid Bergman's first scene, she is having a psychiatric session with a patient. Suddenly, you hear the sound of the door opening. The camera immediately goes to the door, showing two men standing side by side, both perfectly still and standing in a place that would have required more movement than the time allotted between shot changes.

Jon Nicholas

Continuity mistake: When Maria dumps the pot of red sauce onto Max and John, the first shot has her nearly emptying the pot. When the camera shifts to Max and John, the sauce keeps flowing in large amounts after the pot should have been empty.

Rear Window (1954)

Revealing mistake: In the shot of the helicopter hovering above the apartment building, the blue screen technique is needlessly revealed by the eratic and physically impossible movements of the chopper. This could have been avoided if the camera shooting the aircraft had been stationary. It appears, however, that it was a handheld shot.

Gigi (1958)

Continuity mistake: When Gaston is not allowed to take Gigi out for tea, Madame Alvarez tells him to sit down. As he is seating himself, he unbuttons his jacket. A moment later, he stands up and unbuttons his jacket again.

Seabiscuit (2003)

Trivia: The Pimlico race track shown in this movie was not really Pimlico at all. The track the producers chose to represent what Pimlico looked like in those days was far from Baltimore, Maryland. It was the Keeneland race track in Lexington, Kentucky.
