Corrected entry: In the first scene when Cullen is entering the vault, she swipes her card then she types a 10 digit code to get in. But, close to the end of the movie when they are running the disk, the bad guys check the vault and Moorhart enters an 8 digit pass and it doesn't work, then he enters a 7 digit pass. What's with that? Is that a mistake or is he just an idiot?

Corrected entry: 'Simon' needs McClane alive until the very end, when he has secured the gold. Diverting the police by making them think he is merely avenging his dead brother is a vital part of his plan. It therefore makes no sense at all that his very first task for McClane - wearing a grotesquely racist sandwich board as he walks through Harlem - could very easily get him killed.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, when Jim is having make up-sex, the girl asks if he's sure he doesn't want to go back to her room, meaning they are in Jim's room. So after Jim's parents walk in, how does the girl's parents know what room she is in? I doubt she would tell her parents where she would be having sex.
Corrected entry: It's never explained how Sex Machine's strap gun works. You never see him actually make something to let his gun pop out of his groin or to fire off shots. It sure cannot be operated by the force of telepathy.

Corrected entry: In the scene when Pascal is being made to walk the plank, Lake seems surprised that he fell onto a fishing boat. Given her position on deck, she should have seen that the boat saw moored along side.

Corrected entry: During the scene after Michael fast forwards Sundace going to the bathroom he goes inside screaming while running up the stairs, but as the camera spans out into the next morning you can plainly see that it is a one story house.

Corrected entry: Unless there are no labor restrictions limiting how many days a week they could work, it would be impossible to get a star every day of the month.

Corrected entry: In the scene after Maverick goes to Viper's house to ask for "his options", he is shown sitting on his motorcycle at the end of a runway watching a plane coming in to land. The plane has its tailhook down, which should only be down while landing on the deck of a carrier. This obviously was footage of a carrier landing being reused. And in the very next shot it shows him watching the plane accelerating away with afterburners glowing, which contradicts the earlier shot of the plane landing. (01:25:00)

Corrected entry: Les and the other people taking their exams are shown in DMV-provided cars, with the DMV logo on them. Examinees, now as 20 years ago when the film was set, have to provide their own cars for the exam - the DMV does not (and did not) provide them. Also, the car Les uses for his exam is a stick shift car. If the DMV did provide cars for the exam (which, as stated above, they do not) they never would provide stick shift cars, which not all of the population can drive.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when they are all looking at the ship sail off into the sunset, there is one problem: this took place in Oregon and the sun sets over the ocean in the west, which is correct. But the kids coming out the cave takes place in the morning, so the sun would not have been there, as it comes up in the east.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jimmy and Steve are being chased by 2 alien spacecraft, Jimmy says he is going to "try something", after which he makes a drastic high speed left turn away from Steve's plane. The G forces are so great, Jimmy can't breathe so he takes off his oxygen mask. Steve immediately yells, "Put your mask back on!", but how would he have known he removed his mask if he had already banked away from him and he couldn't actually see him?

Corrected entry: When Cain arrives on the trash planet, his wounds, which Todd inflicted, are fully healed and well-scarred over, yet Todd has only been on the planet for a short period of time, not enough for the scars to appear.

Corrected entry: When Korben throws the bomb onto the bottom of the landing in the Hotel, he asks Ruby to count to ten. Ruby starts counting 1,1000 2,1000, but stops. When Korben shouts at him to count again he starts again from 1, and the bomb explodes after he starts screaming under the pool table. Assuming the Bomb was a timer (Why would Korben ask Ruby to count if it wasn't) the bomb should have exploded well before it did.

Corrected entry: Mike's father dies in 2021, as it says on his tombstone. Back when Mike was fat and just got promoted again, he tells the remote "Just take me home" and fast forwards to him arriving home. While he's in the car, the radio is heard saying that the year is 2017. After the dog knocks Mike over, the remote fast forwards to the end of his illness. Donna says he has been recovering for 6 years. This is right before he finds out his father died, so his father would have had to died in 2023 if it really has been 6 years.

Corrected entry: During the scene when the gremlin tampers with the brake cable on the police car, the car then pulls off down the street and you can see the brake lights come on as the car slows up to go round a sharp corner. (01:07:00 - 01:07:55)
