Legally Blonde (2001)

Plot hole: The rule cited to allow Elle to be the attorney (with supervision) only allows "senior law students" who have taken a class in evidence to appear as an attorney. Since Elle is in her first year, she is neither "senior" nor has she taken any classes in evidence.

The Execution of Catherine Willows - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: At one point Catherine is at the coffee shop and the parents of a murdered girl come to talk to her. She is holding her coffee in the right hand and her cell phone rings and she grabs it with her left. The shot switches angles while Catherine is talking and her cell phone has magically shifted to her right hand.

Continuity mistake: When Jenny makes the cab stop, the driver gets out and he is a middle-aged man, with black hair and no glasses. The next shot shows them with an older man wearing glasses (and it looks like he has a moustache/beard).

Audio problem: When Jenny makes the cab stop, Matt says something, but his lips never move.

Anchorman (2004)

Trivia: In the brawl, the two horsemen with the net between them come after Brian and drag him. This shot (and the accompanying music) comes straight from the Planet of the Apes, the original release.

Anchorman (2004)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the brawl, you can see that Brian falls down as the rest of the crew runs forward. In the next shot he is right there with them pointing his gun at other groups.

Anchorman (2004)

Revealing mistake: In the brawl, where the horsemen are coming after Brian, look at the two newsmen behind him. One rears back without getting hit, then the one he's fighting falls on the ground like he got hit without actually getting hit.

Anchorman (2004)

Continuity mistake: Right before the brawl, Brian pulls out a pistol which he also has right when the brawl begins. However, in the very next shot someone is swining a weapon down at him and he's holding nunchucks (play it on slow and you can see it's him).

Anchorman (2004)

Plot hole: At the end of the movie when getting out of the bear pit, the crew decides to use a ladder when a set of stairs can be seen. Was this so Vince Vaughn could give his respect speech?

Quantum Leap (1989)

M.I.A. - April 1, 1969 - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, when Sam is undressing and Al is telling him who he leaped into, in one shot Sam is taking off his beaded necklace and in the next his necklace is off and he's taking off his belt, but Al continues the sentence so no time passed during the cut.

Quantum Leap (1989)

M.I.A. - April 1, 1969 - S2-E22

Audio problem: When Sam, dressed as a guru, is talking to Al about Beth, Al calls the lawyer a "scuzzbag" but he mouths "scumbag." Guess it couldn't get past the censors.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Sea Bride - June 3, 1954 - S2-E21

Audio problem: When the little girl is dragging her sister across the room to get her to meet Sam at the pool, she says, "He's waiting at the pool for you," but her mouth doesn't even come close to mouthing those words.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Sea Bride - June 3, 1954 - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: At the end when Sam punches out the bad guy, there is not a white piece of trash stuck to the back of his left shoulder. Two shots later, there is a white piece of trash there.

Quantum Leap (1989)

M.I.A. - April 1, 1969 - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when dressed in drag, Sam has a cigarette with a long bit of ash on it. He looks at his "reflection" and there is a short bit of ash on the cigarette, then it cuts back to him and there is a short bit of ash.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Sea Bride - June 3, 1954 - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the show they go to great pains to show (on more than one occasion) the "reflection" of Sam in the mirror. However, when the girl shoves him against it, kissing and slapping Sam, it is his real reflection.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Maybe Baby - March 11, 1963 - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: When Sam is talking to Al in the store (while looking at car seats), Al checks on Margaret Dalton and holds the handset at chest level. The shot switches to Sam down on his knees and it's at his face level (about Al's waist). Then the shot switches back to Al and the handset is again chest high.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Leaping in Without a Net - November 18, 1958 - S2-E19

Audio problem: In the beginning of the show, when Sam's father tells him to get down, Sam climbs down and falls off the net. When he hits the dirt it makes a sound like he's hitting a board.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Maybe Baby - March 11, 1963 - S2-E20

Audio problem: When Sam is looking in the mirror talking to Al, he says, "Would you look at me? I've got a gold tooth." However, the reflection doesn't mouth the first part and doesn't even say the second.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Leaping in Without a Net - November 18, 1958 - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Sam and his sister are on the trapeze and she does a double and he catches her you can see that the bar she jumped from is not moving behind her. Then when she jumps back to it, it's swinging again.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Maybe Baby - March 11, 1963 - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: At one point when the police are chasing Sam, the car has a Sheriff's star on the driver's side door; however, when Sam drives into Clayton, no star is to be seen.
