Continuity mistake: During the book-burning scene, when the Reverend sends the people home, in closeup it is obvious that he has a small rectangular pin attached to his upper jacket pocket. Before and after that specific closeup he wears no pin whatsoever. (00:21:20 - 00:22:10)

The runner on the table is also suddenly bunched up, despite no-one going near it. (01:38:40)

You've Got Mail mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Kathleen (Meg Ryan) and Joe (Tom Hanks) talked about what it would have been like if they hadn't been enemies in the book business, Kathleen says she has to go and heads off to her apartment. During this time, the camera switches back and forth between Joe and Kathleen. Kathleen's right sweater sleeve cuff is by her wrist in one shot and rolled up by her elbow in the next. In the next shot it goes back down again. (01:47:20)

Continuity mistake: In one of the early scenes where Joe Fox and his girlfriend are having breakfast, Joe's orange juice carton moves around the table by itself. Joe's glass seems to refill itself in an instance without any juice leaving the carton and when Patricia throws a newspaper on the table, Joe is holding his glass in his right hand; in the next shot it's in his left. At one point Joe puts the glass down on the table and in the next shot picks it up from the top of his newspaper. (00:04:35)

Continuity mistake: When Tom Hanks is agitated over how to explain his absence at the Cafe Lola, he paces back and forth while looking at his computer. When there is a close-up shot of the computer, we see his chair is right in front of it. But when he returns to sit down, the chair is way off to the side of the screen. (01:13:20)

Continuity mistake: When Joe is on the yacht talking to his father, Joe is mixing up martinis, pours them, and adds an olive to one, and then an olive to the other. The camera cuts away to his father and then cuts back and now the second martini has no olive, so Joe adds an olive again. (01:30:11)

Coraline (2009)

Coraline mistake picture

Trivia: Their work completed, the movers leave and one of them receives a small tip from Coraline's mother. Watch the face on the one-dollar bill: it is not that of George Washington, but Henry Selick, director of the film. (00:03:15)
