Continuity mistake: After Mike and Ned fight with lightsabers, when they are in the kitchen Mike's wedding ring moves from his left hand to his right hand and back again, depending on the angle of the shot. (00:21:05)

Factual error: In the scene where Taylor is trying to prove to Gabriella that Troy is a dumb jock who doesn't care about her, Troy is in the locker room with his friends. Troy's friends are recording Troy on a camera attached to a PC, and the image is seen on Taylor's PC. The message on Taylor's PC says an incorrectly spelled 'Recieving WiFi Signal' instead of 'Receiving'. (01:00:55)

Revealing mistake: When David Arquette is preparing to drive his rocket car, he does a u-turn to get pointed in the correct direction (towards his friend who is filming). The image is reversed at that point, so that he appears to be driving from the passenger side of the car.

Freedomland (2006)

Question: Brenda reports her car has been carjacked with her son in it. Since this was a lie, and there was no carjacking, what happened to Brenda's car?

Chosen answer: She's a drug-addled, crazy trailer-trash woman. It's unlikely she ever HAD a car.

Trivia: The movie shows the last Gilbreth child born as a boy, Robert. The last child was actually Jane.

Trivia: All twelve children were never alive at one time. Mary, along with some of her siblings, came down with diphtheria, in 1912. While the others recovered, Mary died on January 31st. The family continued to refer to the Dozen, even though all twelve were never contemporaries. The book refers to them as a dozen, and the movie & stage play portrays all 12 at a time.

Factual error: The pirates should have been crushed by the pile of rolling logs, but they just keep coming. No dead bodies, no blood, no guts, but hey, it's Disney.

marfbody

Trivia: Cammie King, the child actress who played Bonnie Blue Butler, could not stop blinking during the filming of her funeral scene, when she is obviously supposed to be dead. A mask of her face was made, and the scene was finally filmed with the actress wearing the mask.

Daddy Day Care (2003)

Revealing mistake: Phil is not actually playing the guitar when he is singing for the kids. He hits different/mismatching chords at multiple points in the movie.

marfbody

Continuity mistake: When Amy is in the kitchen cleaning, she starts mopping the floor, then dancing with the mop held upside down. The mop starts out wet, but when she's dancing it's dry (either that or she would be getting dirty mop water in her face while the mop is being flung around).
