Character mistake: When Miranda is scheduling the trip to Abu Dhabi with the girls, she says they have to go within three weeks or the next month will be the hottest month. However, on the first night when Carrie can't sleep, her alarm clock says August 26. August is the hottest month in the middle east.

The Gauntlet (1977)

Stupidity: Other than creating a scene for the movie, there was no reason for them to be driving so slow through the streets of Phoenix when they are going to City Hall. If they had gone at a faster speed, they would've made it through without getting hit so many times.

Collateral (2004)

Continuity mistake: When we first see Vincent in Annie's building, he is in an office to the left side of the building. You can tell this because there were offices down and to the right. However, when Max is telling Annie "now" there is an office below her on the right side of the building. (01:39:00)

Collateral (2004)

Stupidity: When Max is in the federal building and shoots Vincent, he and Annie get into the elevator and go to the first floor. Knowing that Vincent would take the stairs down to the first floor, why didn't Max and Annie stop on the 12th floor, or any floor, get out, and call the police from there. It would have taken Vincent quite a while to figure out what floor they were on, and they could've kept moving from floor to floor and Vincent would've never found them.

Other mistake: When Bobby give Daniel his business card, he was running for his life out of the store. but when they found the business card and Daniel, it was tucked into his leather jacket pocket. Daniel wouldn't have taken the time while he was running to put it in his breast jacket pocket, because when you see him running in the street, and riding on the bike his hands are busy. (00:28:00)

The Glass House (2001)

Other mistake: When Rhett sees Terry coming up from the car accident that he was in and tells Ruby, she jumps in the front seat of the car. The car is in park, but she moves the lever up, which would mean the car was in the drive position already.

Collateral (2004)

Other mistake: When Max is tied to the steering wheel, he starts hitting the horn with his head and yelling out the window. When you see the cab from behind, the flashers are on. With his hands tied the way they were, there was no way he could've turned the flashers on.

Suggested correction: There's a chance Max turned the flashers on since he made a stop and was waiting in an alley. They may have already been on just before Max was tied up.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, Spencer is wearing a blue hood jacket when arriving at school. However, when they destroy the gaming unit and game with a bowling ball, Spencer is back in his yellow raincoat. Bethany and Fridge are also wearing different jackets, because outside Fridge is on a vest with a hoodie and a green shirt, and Bethany has on a blue jacket, but inside, Fridge just has on a hoodie and a numbered football shirt, and Bethany has on a multi colored jacket. Also, Spencer has on a black shirt outside, and a blue button down shirt inside. (01:48:00 - 01:50:00)

Other mistake: When the plane drops out of the tree with the tail going down and all the people in the tail, it crashes and the metal actually crushes upward. There is no way that those people could walk out of that plane uninjured.

Other mistake: When they are loading the last of the passengers and workers, the gate from the ship goes down at a very slow pace. However, when Uri and his sons are climbing up the ladder to get to the platform, the gate is going up at a very fast rate. It does not make sense that it would not go back up as slowly as it went down.

Plot hole: When Picard, Hawk and Worf are out on the particle transmitter, they each have one gun. However, when Picard is attacked by Hawk, the gun that Hawk used is being stepped on by him. Picard left his gun over at the other mag lock, and Worf threw his away, but when the captain was in trouble, Worf had a gun. He would not have had time to run around to Picard's side before he was attacked by Hawk, so where did Worf get the other gun from?

Suggested correction: As you can see in a wide shot after Worf's suit is cut, his gun is still hanging close by. So after he closed the gap in his suit he just grabbed his own gun. Of course, he did throw it away and it should have kept on moving all the way out of reach but something stopped it. But you do see it still in reach of Worf.

Factual error: When Mya points out his Loch Ness tattoo, and asks when he got it, and he says the night before, it would not be healed as it is. It would still be red, raised, and be covered to protect it. Also, later in the movie when he is on the ground and we see the large tattoo across the whole back, this would also be impossible as a whole back tattoo would take at least two or three long sessions, and this movie takes place over just a couple of days.

Taken (2008)

Continuity mistake: When Brian rents the car, he drives out of the agency driving an Audi. When he is at the construction site, the car has changed to a Mercedes-Benz.

Suggested correction: We don't see him arrive at the construction site, only standing in line to enter the building. He uses a Jeep SUV to get away, and the bad guys are driving trucks and a Mercedes SUV. He probably stole the Jeep for the getaway after confirming before he got in line that the workers left the keys in the vehicle.

Factual error: Paul has hypoglycemia. When he eats the lollipop off the floor and gets up instantly, this would never happen as it takes the sugar a while to get into the bloodstream. He would never be instantly cured.

Continuity mistake: When Tom is with Peter on the boat sailing to Greece and Tom says he's going to watch the sunset, the sun is just above the horizon. When Tom goes into Peter's room after talking with Marge, you can see the sun in the exact same position out the porthole window in Peter's room.
