Continuity mistake: The Bird of Prey is the one captured by Kirk's crew in ST III That ship's bridge showed Klingon Cmdr Kruge in his elevated command chair with his helmsmen arrayed circularly below him, and nothing else. ST IV has this same ship, however the bridge now resembles The Enterprise layout with Kirk's command chair behind Sulu and Chekov at their rectangular helm, with Spock, Scotty and Uhura at their usual positions.

Suggested correction: According to the captain's log at the beginning, they have been on Vulcan for 3 months. As they prepare to depart, we see several Vulcan technicians moving equipment in and around the ship. It's quite conceivable that the bridge was reconfigured according to the crew's specifications to facilitate their use of the ship. This may seem a bit excessive, as the remodel includes the door onto the bridge, and the frame of the door, and possibly most of the rest of the ship. But it's not outside the realm of possibility. The real mistake, though, is why they would go to the effort of installing new workstations on the Klingon bridge and marking them with Klingon labels, instead of standard Federation text. Interestingly, though, the "Starfleet" style bridge layout of the Klingon ship is being used by the Klingons on the Bird of Prey in Star Trek V.

Continuity mistake: In the Kobayashi Maru, Dr.McCoy is knocked to the deck unconscious, his head on a support; next shot shows McCoy's head lying on Sulu's leg; next shot shows McCoy's head back on the bare deck.

Other mistake: In the bobsled chase, Blofeld arms a grenade, which drops to the floor of his sled, where it rolls around with every turn. He arms and throws a second grenade onto the track, where it is detonated by Bond's sled. The original armed grenade loose in Blofeld's sled never detonates, even when that sled crashes.

Suggested correction: He never arms a second grenade, he picks up the one he drops and that's the one he throws at Bond. There is only ever one grenade.

Other mistake: As Kirk realigns the warp core to restore power and save the USS Enterprise from crashing to Earth, Sulu tells Spock: "Without power, we'll incinerate on re-entry." It shows Kirk restoring power after it plummets below the clouds, which is well beyond the point where they would have been incinerated.

Suggested correction: Kirk restores the power before the ship goes below the clouds, they were using the thrusters to slow their descent way before they broke the cloud barrier.

Character mistake: Following McQueen's viewing of Naval Shipmate Attenborough's corpse, he then fails to recover the decedents dogtag; a United States Military Protocol.

Continuity mistake: The Apes cross the timber-pile beaver dam en route to the hydro-station. On their approach, the upstream canyon is shown to have a low water level. As they cross, the water is spilling through that dam.

Suggested correction: Water is flowing away from the dam, so that is the exit side and the level would be dictated by the flow through and over the dam.

The Lake House (2006)

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits, Kate leaves the Lake House via the kitchen, where we see the indoor tree is branches only-no leaves. Then from her car she looks back to the house, where we now see that tree is covered in orange leaves.

Clambake (1967)

Continuity mistake: The barn-door scene: Mac's drinking from a beer bottle when Susan backs into him to tell him how to braid her hair. He puts both hands upon her hair. The camera pans back showing them and there's no sign of the beer bottle he's just held.

Continuity mistake: At the Dam Hydro Plant Caesar throws Koba on his back and pummels him. Then they roll once to the right, which now puts Koba on top of Caesar. Yet a quick-cut to their faces shows they kept Caesar on top, still pummeling Koba.

Suggested correction: It's Koba on top of Caesar in the first part of the fight. Caesar gets the advantage after the roll to the right.

Bullitt (1968)

Factual error: After the mid-point chase scene, Lt Bullitt drives to an airport hotel identified as the "Thunderbolt hotel in San Mateo." The hotel [originally 'Thunderbird' in the early '60s, renamed 'Thunderbolt', then 'Clarion', finally 'Aloft' in 2012.] is located adj the SFO runways at 401 E.Millbrae Av Millbrae, not San Mateo.

Masada (1981)

Continuity mistake: In the scene with Kirk and Spock walking the marina green under the Golden Gate Bridge, the leading shot shows blue sky. As the camera changes angles, the background changes to completely fogged in. Not shot on the same day.
