Open Season (2006)

Continuity mistake: Mr. Dinkleman's straps appear and disappear randomly throughout the movie. Although they are adjustable and we see Boog lengthening them on his first day in the woods, there are several scenes (even before Mr. Dinkleman is damaged after the flood) where the straps just disappear.

Out of Africa (1985)

Continuity mistake: At dinner during the first visit by Denys and Berkely, Denys skewers a sliced strawberry with a toothpick and he holds it while he is conversing with Karen. As the camera moves around the table to the different actors, the strawberry changes to a grape.

Continuity mistake: When Bob's wife tosses the coffee into the dumpsters, garbage bags (tied with string) are visible. When Elliot pops out of the dumpster moments later with the hot coffee, the garbage bags are gone.

Open Season (2006)

Revealing mistake: Just after Boog breaks the dam and the deer herd is bounding across the dry riverbed, at the moment they realize they are going to be swept downstream by the wall of water, their legs disappear - just left out of the animation cell. Very obvious; no slow-mo needed to see.

Factual error: The movie's set in New Jersey, but EASCare, the ambulance service used in the last scene, is a company out of Boston (where the movie was filmed). Also, the license plate on the ambulance has an registration sticker, which New Jersey hasn't used in many years.

Open Season (2006)

Continuity mistake: As Beth transports Boog to a location above the waterfall, he is shown hanging from the helicopter in a rope basket and cushioned by a tarp that is open at the top. But after Beth releases the rope basket (from inside the helicopter prior to landing) to lay Boog on the ground, the tarp is covering him completely, rather than laying underneath him, as it did during the transport.

Open Season (2006)

Continuity mistake: At the amphitheater, just as Boog chases Elliott through the curtain and off the stage, the dark colored paint that was splashed across the back of the curtain only moments before is not visible when Boog and Elliott pull the curtain down upon themselves and neither of them have any trace of paint on them after they roll free of the paint-splattered curtain.

Open Season (2006)

Continuity mistake: At the amphitheater, just as Boog chases Elliott through the curtain and off the stage, all of the items strewn about backstage that were there moments before (the paint can, the rope, the toolbox) are missing.

Open Season (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Boog is "attacking" Elliot backstage at the Amphitheater and is pulling the ropes which the audience thinks are his intestines, the ropes are pulled willy-nilly and at great lengths when viewed through the curtain. But when viewed backstage while Boog is trying to tie Elliott with the rope, the rope is coiled neatly in a pile, except for a short length in Boog's paws.

The Hours (2002)

Trivia: Julianne Moore was not pregnant during all of the scenes where her character, Laura Brown, is pregnant. However, during the last scene with Laura and Clarissa, when Laura has been aged to an elderly woman, Julianne was seven months pregnant (as this scene was reshot one year after the rest of the film was completed). In the scene with Laura and Julia, after Julia hugs her and Laura says, "Goodnight, Sweetheart", her pregnancy is actually quite noticeable.

Secret Window (2004)

Trivia: The opening sequence brings us across the lake, through the Secret Window, over the railing and INTO THE MIRROR. A deliberate implication that we are seeing INSIDE the character's psyche.

Cleaner (2007)

Other mistake: Eddie comes to see Tom at the bathroom clean-up job and convinces Tom to confide in him. Eddie tells Tom that he'll, "See what Wallace knows". There is no character named "Wallace" - he was supposed to say "Vargas", the investigator on the case. The subtitles correctly reference Vargas.
