Shrek 2 (2004)

Corrected entry: At the end when Shrek and Fiona decide not to remain in human form, when the clock hits midnight, the bell chimes 13 times.

Correction: This is wrong. The clock only chimes 12 times and then starts playing a tune as Shrek and Fiona change.

Kara

Corrected entry: During the scene where Mike TeeVee has been transmitted through the TV, you can clearly see him standing on a black stage type platform, which you shouldn't be able to see. (01:29:10)

Correction: You can see him standing on a black platform, you then see him step down off the platform. The fact that you see him step off the platform while still in the TV indicates that this is not a mistake.

Kara

Corrected entry: Professor Lupin tells Harry that he recognised him the first time he saw him because he had his mother's eyes (and didn't have to be told who he was). The first time Lupin saw Harry, Harry had passed out and his eyes were shut - and Hermione was using Harry's name before he came round.

Correction: Hermione was only saying 'Harry', Harry Potter is not the only person in the world called Harry. Lupin didn't realise that this Harry was 'Harry Potter' until he'd come round and opened his eyes.

Kara

Correction: Lupin didn't know this was Harry Potter who was passed out. And everyone was talking about Sirius Black had escaped from Azkaban, not just Harry and his friends. The "first time" he saw him, Lupin was chasing off the dementor and when he turns around, he first saw Harry.

Correction: I think Remus was lying about recognizing Harry from his eyes. When Lupin was asleep in the compartment the trio sat in, Harry told them that Sirius Black is after him. And heard him because he was pretending to be sleeping but he heard everything. So no he knew he was Harry when he heard his story.

Corrected entry: In the Sumo Arena, the 'Twister' move Fat Bastard used on the Sumo Wrestler would definitely be a foul, and he would have lost the game; but in the movie, he wins.

Correction: For that very reason Austin and Foxxy both say 'That's not right' and in the very next scene you see Fat Bastard paying the referee. Fat Bastard performs a foul and still wins because he has bribed the ref, not a mistake.

Sex and the City (1998)

Correction: The episodes don't run as one week, the time scale is indeterminate. Samantha is much further on in her chemo in this episode than she was in the episode where they taped themselves having sex.

Kara

Season 7 generally

Corrected entry: In the episode where Spike is having memories of his mother, he tells her that Drusilla made him what he is (a vampire), telling us she is his sire, but in series two we find out that Angel was his sire.

Correction: Joss Whedon has said that technically Angel is Spike's grand sire because Angel is Drusilla's sire but it basically amounts to the same thing.

The Lion King (1994)

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, Scar says, "Oh, no Mufasa. Perhaps you shouldn't turn your back on me." Mufasa runs up to Scar, roaring, and says, "Is that a challenge?" Problem is, the roar is still going on while Mufasa is speaking.

Deidra Goins

Correction: They're in a cave. It's an echo.

Kara

But there is no echo for the rest of the words spoken.

Correction: Willow didn't bring her back from Hell. Willow just did a spell for her to be returned from where she was

First Date - S7-E14

Corrected entry: How does Wood know his mother was killed by a vampire? We saw Spike kill his mother in the season 5 episode "Fool For Love". Spike broke her neck on an empty subway. There were no witnesses, and no bite marks.

Correction: Vampires brag, so it's very likley that Spike bragged to Wood's mother's watcher that he had just killed his slayer.

24 (2001)

Correction: The main reason for not allowing Mason to fly the plane himself was that he might pass out, so it is possible that Mason wasn't conscious throughout the whole flight.

Family Guy (1999)

Correction: You can't be sure that Lois actually smoked pot while pregnant with Stewie. She says it during a dream sequence, this doesn't mean it actually happened.

Kara

I'd say that since it was her dream, she was probably holding on to some guilt about it.

27th Aug 2003

Friends (1994)

Correction: Not every married couple wear wedding rings. Ross mentions that Rachel said something about a dove placing the ring on her finger, but remember, Rachel is pregnant during this, it is very possible that people thought she'd just taken off her ring because her hands had swollen due to the pregnancy.

Friends (1994)

Show generally

Corrected entry: Throughout the series, the intercom buzzer to get into the apartment building is used sporadically. In some episodes, people have to be let into the building by communicating through the intercom; in others, the visitors suddenly appear knocking at the door.

Correction: As was demonstrated by Phoebe in the one where Monica gets shouted at for her review of Allesandros restaurant, if someone is leaving the building they may just hold the door open for someone trying to get in.

Titanic (1997)

Corrected entry: They show one of the guards, Will, shooting himself in the head after he shoots the Irishman. However this man did not actually shoot himself and his family took a lawsuit against the film makers for portraying him as gutless. The rumour that he had shot himself as well as a passenger surfaced not long after the ship sank. The family of the officer received messages from crew members who survived assuring them that he died like a hero and he did not shoot any passengers or himself.

Correction: Not a mistake, nor really trivia.

Kara

Corrected entry: In the scene where the pirates are raiding the Governor's house and a pirate goes after Elizabeth, she tries to fight back by dumping the hot coals from her bed warmer to burn the pirate. He then says "It burns." Since he is cursed, wouldn't he not be able to feel the heat from the coals?

AzN InVasian

Correction: It's likely that he did feel the heat from the coals. As has already been mentioned his wooden eye was irritating him a lot making it seem like part of the curse was that they shall never feel pleasure but still feel pain

Chicago (2002)

Corrected entry: During the Cell Block Tango number, Velma says 'Well, I was in such a state of shock, I completely blacked out. I can't remember a thing. It wasn't until later, when I was washing the blood off my hands I even knew they were dead.' Since she washed the blood off her hands at the theatre, and was supposedly 'blacked out' prior to that, why would she assume the blood was from her husband and sister? I know this was her defense, but it's just so transparent I can't imagine anyone buying it.

JustJudy

Correction: It is feasible that when she was washing off the blood from her hands she remembered what she had done, it's a defence which has been used in real cases before.

Pleasantville (1998)

Correction: How do you know cheese burgers were unknown? It's the only food the people in Pleasantville order in the burger bar, plus the burger bar owner goes on to say that there are no cheese burgers because David/Bud hasn't done things in the usual order.

Pleasantville (1998)

Corrected entry: When Bud shows the art book to Bill, he is looking through it on the counter. After a lot of close-ups of turning pages they end up sitting at a table. (00:59:45)

NancyFelix

Correction: It's a big book full of pages, it's entirely feasible that they got up and mooved into a more comfortable position, there is no suggestion that the opening to the closing of the book is in real time.

Titanic (1997)

Corrected entry: Rose's hand sticks to Jack's hand at the end because of how cold it is, so why didn't other things stick, like the whistle to the man's mouth or Rose to the wood or Jack to the wood or Jacks cuffs to his wrist?

gandolfs dad

Correction: Her hand doesn't stick to his hand. Jack's hand has frozen into position while holding Rose's hand so she has to unhook her own hand from him.

Friends (1994)

The One With the List - S2-E8

Corrected entry: In TOW, the list Monica says that she is allergic to cat hair. In TOW Ross Finds Out we find out that Monica used to have a cat named Fluffy Meowington. To me that sounds like an animal with a lot of cat hair.

Correction: My family used to own a cat, after having it for 3 or 4 years my sister developed an allergy to cat hair, maybe the exposure Monica experienced while owning a cat helped her realise she does have a cat allergy.
