Cape Fear (1962)

Factual error: When they are on the houseboat and everything is calm, the sound comes from birds, and in particular, Kookaburras. These birds make a very distinctive sound, it sounds like someone is laughing, but the birds only live on the east side of Australia, nowhere else.

Rebecca (1940)

Other mistake: On the first morning at Manderlay, as the girl is leaving the dining room, she slips and nearly falls but Frith is there to catch her, but Frith was way into the dining room; there is no way he could have been close enough to catch her.

Hannibal Rising (2007)

Question: Hannibal is shot in the back, then turned over as the villian plunges a knife into Hannibal's thigh three times, saying, "He's paralysed, he can't feel this." But Hannibal stands up and is perfectly fine. There's no damage from the bullet or the knife. How is this possible?

kh1616

Chosen answer: Hannibal has the Japanese dagger on his back, and when he gets it out you can see there is a bullet hole on it indicating that the bullet hit the dagger. Grutas just pokes Hannibal in the leg with the knife, he doesn't actually stab him, it doesn't even tear his clothes.

Skyfall (2012)

Plot hole: When Bond climbs out of the lift he has been hanging onto underneath, how does he know the villain went right and to go that way? Yes, the lights come on automatically when someone walks past them, but Bond was climbing up and out of a lift. By the time he gets to the hall, all the lights are out.

Plot hole: In the last tank experience, the ones watching are looking at a morphing of Dr Jessup's face. Problem is: There's no camera in the tank.

Continuity mistake: When Ethan and the girl are sliding down the rope at the opera, in one shot, as it should be, her dress is up around her neck - that is all we see - and in another shot, the dress is down around her ankles, which it shouldn't be.

Suggested correction: The top of her dress is also fluttery and could have created the illusion that her dress is up around her neck.

That's not the top of her dress we see. The top is fitted over just one shoulder, there's not enough material to cover up her shoulders and neck like it does. It's the bottom of her dress.

Continuity mistake: When John and Jack steal a car to go to Chernobyl, the trunk had guns in it, but no black vests, which is what they find the second time they open the trunk, at Chernobyl.

But then when Adaline is driving to her parent's place and the commentary says, "Where her five-year-old daughter is waiting for her." There's no way the child at the funeral was five years old.

kh1616

Continuity mistake: With very little petrol available, the Bronski's chauffeur uses a horse to tow the car. Once they are at the theatre, the chauffeur pulls on the reins and gets down to open the car door, so the Bronskis can get out. Between pulling to a stop and the Bronskis being out, the reins have vanished.

Character mistake: When Jenny is dead, Ellis attempts CPR on her, but his hands on her chest are far too high; they should be just up from the base of her sternum, his are nearly under her chin.
