Continuity mistake: After the coach's first argument with his wife, he returns to the bedroom to apologize. She's laying on her right hip and has to twist at the waist to see him standing in the doorway. He speaks, and the top of her head is in the shot the entire time. When the camera cuts back to her, she's now laying on her left hip, facing him square on. She couldn't have rolled over without causing her head to move or dip out of frame.

Continuity mistake: When Frodo is pulling Sam out of the water at the very end of the movie, the underwater shots show Sam's hand grasping Frodo's wrist (Frodo's palm is against the inside of Sam's wrist), but as soon as he gets him above water, Frodo has a grip on Sam that forces Sam to keep his palm facing away from Frodo's arm (Frodo's palm is against the back of Sam's arm). Short of releasing Sam completely, there is no way to change grip like that in between the two shots. (01:31:05)
Question: After Frodo has been stabbed by the Morgul blade and Arwen is taking him to Rivendell, right after she uses the river to sweep the Ringwraiths away, Frodo makes a wheezing noise and begins to look radically worse. Why does Arwen get off the horse, lay him down on the bank, and cry? Why doesn't she just speed off to her father who can cure Frodo? Why the delay?

Plot hole: How did a woman who had just escaped from a mental institution get out of the country so fast? Even if she had a passport already, she wouldn't have it - the hospital or her family would. How could she get it back from them without SOMEONE turning her back in to the institution? It takes a lot to get involuntarily committed in the US, and I doubt she could get un-committed that fast, even with the guy she tried to kill vouching for her.

Continuity mistake: At the very end, as the S.W.A.T. truck pulls away and is driving through the desert after dropping off the prisoner, a call comes through the radio. Street puts his ear-piece on, the camera angle changes to Hondo who is right behind and replying to Street, and Street is again just beginning to put his ear-piece on.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the big motorcross scene, the Creepy Thin Man's bike hits a spar right where it connects to a leg on one of the electrical towers. The bike hits above the front tire and flips over the top of the bar, while the obvious dummy falls backward away from the bike. But when it cuts to Creepy Thin Man getting up and staggering off, the bike is back in front of the leg, right behind him. With the trajectory of both falling objects (bike and the Thin Man), he should have been thrown much farther from the metal leg and the bike should have landed yards behind it, rather than the two landing close together.

Factual error: How did they get the Nautilus up the Thames? Or into Venice? They'd have had to dredge the river to get it into London. Also, what's really under Venice? I thought Venice was built on a marsh, why would there be all those nifty tunnels and columns under there, why not just foundations and such?
