Continuity mistake: When Sophie gets out of the back of the armored truck, she is not carrying anything and, again, as she is running along the side of the armored truck to get into the passenger's side, we see both hands and she isn't carrying anything. A couple of scenes later, as she and Robert walk up the steps to Chateau Villet, she is carrying her gray overcoat and handbag. They can be seen even better when Teabing is kissing her hand in welcome.

New this month Suggested correction: They would have been left in the back of the truck and after escaping easily retrieved before arriving at the chateau.

Question: After Robert and Sophie read the clue that was in the cryptex, Robert says he thinks he knows where she's gone. He says, "I think the Grail has gone home." Why would Rosslyn Chapel be the Grail's home?

Sheri Hartman

Chosen answer: Meaning the grail has been carted all over Europe and never got to rest in one place. Now it has a final resting place surrounded by information on her.

Continuity mistake: When Robert, Sophie, Leigh, Remy and Silas are racing for Leigh's airplane, their vehicle's front windshield is hit by a branch and cracks. The large, branched crack is seen in another shot. But later shots of the vehicle on the way to the plane show no crack in the windshield.

Continuity mistake: When Robert is trying to convince Teabring not to call the police, he takes the keystone box out of his jacket pocket and holds it up for Teabing to see. In the shot of the box in Robert's hand with Teabing looking at him, the rose is facing towards Robert. As the camera position switches to focus on Robert holding the box, the rose is now facing towards Teabing.

Continuity mistake: When Vernet slams the door of the armored car, we see the brass bullet casing deformed, flattened on one side. We next see the bullet casing (must be same one since Vernet has not yet fired the gun again) on some flat surface with no apparent damage. If the deformed side had been facing away from the camera, the casing would have been lying at an angle because when the door crushed in the side, it was almost half way in. No way can this be the same casing.

Continuity mistake: When Frances is 'spherically' pulling ivy from the outside walls of her villa, she drops a branch behind her just as she see the snake and says, "Oh, my God." The shot changes from her face to the snake slithering over a window sill into her kitchen. As this shot pulls back and moves up to show more of Frances, we see that she now, once again, has a large branch in her hand.

Continuity mistake: When Sophie is backing away from the American Embassy, she shoots through the small gap between the trucks, Robert's rear view mirror is knocked off and then the car slams into a pole, bending it completely over when she stops. As she drives away there is no dent, no mark, no sign whatsoever that the rear of her car has been touched.

Continuity mistake: When Robert and Sophie are inside the bank, we see a bird's eye view of the key on the edge of the table with the chain's sides next to each other with no space anywhere along the entire circle. This shot is just before Vernet comes in to introduce himself. He walks toward Sophie who is behind a table with a chair also between her and Vernet. Right after Vernet says that first-time users are sometimes uncertain of protocol, we see a close-up of him taking the key off the table. First, he could not have reached the key from where he was in the previous shot, plus he is at a different angle to the key and table when he takes the key than in the previous shot. Second, when he does take the key, the chain is in a different position and has separated so that there is a space between the two sides at the top of the curve and at the top of the key. (00:42:40)

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, at Princess Mia's birthday ball, we see a man in the purple and gold palace attire serving champagne on a tray downstairs. The next shot in the scene has Queen Clarisse introducing Princess Mia and then we see two men dressed in purple and gold ready to open the doors for Princess Mia's entrance - but one of the two men is the same man, who just seconds ago, was downstairs serving champagne.

Continuity mistake: After Vernet shoots over Robert's and Sophie's heads in the back of the armored car, the bullet casing lands on the floor. Robert kicks it with his shoe until it lands in a crevice of the door way but it is not next to anything, nothing on either side of it in the crevice. When Vernet tries to slam the door shut, the casing is now right up next to the other door which is shown as the camera pans straight down the edge of the closed door until it shows the bullet casing be smashed by the door Vernet is trying to close. (00:52:20 - 00:53:10)

Plot hole: Darby goes to great pains to get out of the country, to where no one will know where she is but Grantham. But upon reaching her "secret" destination, a van pulls up to the plane and a man gets out and hands them an envelope with a copy of the front page of the Washington Hearld with their breaking story and both their names as by-lines. That couldn't happen unless other people besides Grantham and the pilots knew her destination.

Twister (1996)

Question: Did any of Jonas' DOT parts or even the majority of it come from the little robot, "Jinx" in the movie Space Camp? Most of DOT looks like Jinx.

Sheri Hartman

Chosen answer: Because the two films are completely unrelated (even from a company perspective), and because there isn't some giant Hollywood Prop Flea Market where everybody shares each other's props, I'm going to say no. The design may have been based on the robot from the movie.

Question: When unknown helicopter is heading for INTREPID, in the very first few frames of the pan of New York City's skyline, there are two tall building to the left edge of the picture. Not being from NYC and knowing nothing about its real estate, it looks a little like the Twin Towers but that's impossible not only because they don't exist any more but also, those two buildings are in the wrong place. I am curious as to what those two buildings are.

Sheri Hartman

Chosen answer: These are the Time Warner Center buildings, most likely. Check out this web page for a similar misunderstanding on a larger scale: http://www.snopes.com/humor/mediagoofs/blackout.asp.

Continuity mistake: The Declaration of Independence in the clear plastic cover keeps changing colors from brown to white and back. When Ben puts it in the very first time while in the elevator, it is brown. When Ian gets the case out of the street after Abigail loses it, it is white. It is back to brown in the church.

Continuity mistake: When we see Asana mattress surfing, the mattress she comes down the slope has no label on the front. But when she reaches the bottom, there is a label (or two) on the top front center. (01:01:00)

Twister (1996)

Continuity mistake: When Bill and Melissa go out to get the divorce papers from Jo, we see Bill pull his truck up with Rabbit and Allan's truck (hood up) in the background. We see it closer up when Bill asks Dusty, "Where's Jo?" But when the scene comes back to Bill and Dusty and then shows Melissa, Rabbit, Allan and the truck have disappeared. When Dusty is holding Melissa's hand and walking to sit in his chairs, Rabbit & co. are in the background again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Nicholas asks if he can help Princess Mia with her archery, he has her take her stance, then says to lower her elbow. We see Nicholas reach up to put his hand on her shoulder (his right hand is seen through Mia's forearm and shoulder because her elbow is still up so high). Nicholas then says anchor her right hand to her mouth, to touch her mouth. Then he says to relax her hand on the bow as he reaches up to put his left hand around her bow hand. We then see Nicholas reaching up to put his right hand on Mia's shoulder again but this time we see it over the top of her forearm because her elbow has been lowered considerably.

Plot hole: When Jo is getting to walk down the aisle with Queen Clarisse, he hands Shades his top hat and then pops his ear piece right off, in a split second, and puts it in the top hat. In the previous scenes, Princess Mia has Lionel's ear piece stretched from the back of his neck, across his jaw and around his chin and then stretched to her ear but it hasn't popped out, while Queen Clarisse jerks Charlotte with her when she goes to listen to Princess Mia.

Continuity mistake: The scandal video that Elsie shows is not consistent with what the man in the boat with a video camera could have really shot because of the length of time he ducks down into the boat and then is seen sitting up and then bringing out his video camera and supposedly "starts" shooting. If he was shooting before he ducked down and then reappeared, there would be a big gap of Princess Mia waking and sitting up and looking at Nicholas and then at the cameraman and then back at Nicholas. If he didn't start shooting until we actually see him raise the camera up, then the video replay in Princess Mia's room couldn't have had everything on it that is shown.

Sheri Hartman

Continuity mistake: When Princess Mia and Andrew are running after her scarf at the seashore, we see Brigitte and Brigitta also running after the scarf, just as Mia says, "I've got it." But as soon as Andrew and Mia grab the scarf, the next shot shows Brigitte and Brigitta facing the opposite direction and holding parasols, standing behind Andrew's parents.
