Alpha Dog (2006)

Continuity mistake: Zack, Julie, and Alma climb over a fence to get in the swimming pool; Julie and Alma take off their clothes and dive into the pool. Then Zack takes off all of his clothes and walks down the pool steps to get in the pool. There, the camera quickly changes to a different shot that shows Zack continuing to walk in the pool around a corner near the steps, where he meets with Julie. The problem here is that Zack never goes under water before meeting with Julie, but his face and upper body are wet. (01:19:00 - 01:20:00)

Get Hard (2015)

Continuity mistake: When James and Darnell board Martin's yacht and find Martin's computer, they fight the bad guys while Darnell holds it. After a brief conversation with Martin and Alissa, James and Darnell leave with the computer. During the entire fight scene and conversation, the computer's power cord is not anywhere to be seen, but when we cut to them leaving as they walk toward the yacht dinghy, the computer's power cord is now wrapped around it.

Get Hard (2015)

Factual error: When James and Darnell are about to steal Martin's beloved yet aged computer, which appears to be an IBM 5150 desktop with an IBM 5151 monitor sitting on top; we see James turn the nearby power-strip on and the computer instantly, and oddly, boots-up to the incriminating financial records that will set James free. The problem here is that the characters displayed on the monitor are a kind of light-blue color; but the IBM 5151 monitor only displayed characters in green. (01:16:00 - 01:16:45)

Due Date (2010)

Factual error: When Ethan is driving through Texas while Peter is sleeping; the camera shows a Texas Highway traffic marker that reads: "Dallas 36 Miles." In the same camera shot, we see mountainous terrain in the background; followed by additional camera shots that show more mountainous terrain as they travel on the highway before crashing off the overpass. The problem is that there is no mountainous terrain 36 miles outside of Dallas, Texas; it's pretty much flatland.

Continuity mistake: In the bar in Tijuana, when Chow stabs the knife into the table, we see the erect knife aligned with a green bowl located behind it, as well as four beer bottles grouped close together to the right of the green bowl. Then, the camera changes into another wide shot showing the view from the opposite side of the table; where we see that the knife is no longer aligned with the green bowl, it has moved closer to Phil, and the four beer bottles have also moved to different positions. (00:32:00 - 00:33:00)

Continuity mistake: When Jack Nicholson is sitting in a chair in the hospital room and Morgan Freeman is in the hospital bed, a nurse shaves Jack Nicholson's head bald with electric clippers from front to back. When the nurse finishes, the camera changes to a wide shot that shows there is no hair on Jack Nicholson and no hair on the floor. (00:09:00 - 00:09:55)

Shooter (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Swagger is in the stolen FBI car at the assumed end of the car wash, we hear the wheels "peeling out" and the scene shows the back of the car, wet. Then, the scene quickly changes to the FBI car speeding out of the car wash completely dry with just a little water on the windows. (00:32:00 - 00:33:00)

Alpha Dog (2006)

Factual error: When the police cars are in front of the kidnapped kid's house, it shows the date as Sunday November 8th, 1999, which is incorrect. November 8th, 1999 was on a Monday.
