Visible crew/equipment: When Bob comes home and sees that Ann had been in his garage, - he walks into the kitchen via the door, but if you look at the walls, you can see the darkening shadows of the crew and equipment.

Auto Focus (2002)

Revealing mistake: When Bob Crane was playing drums in the club, the night that he told Patti he and John were going out - he CLEARLY isn't playing to the beat, as you can hear drum fills, and he just playing as hitting the drum once with his left stick.

Die Hard (1988)

Factual error: When Takagi is shot and killed, and John says "Argyle, please tell me you heard the shot" - not sure if he's saying it in jest or not, but if not, - there is no way that Argyle could have heard a single gunshot, with the music turned up, in the basement of a multi-story building, when they are 28-30 stories up.

Suggested correction: There may be no way but that doesn't mean John can have wishful thinking, especially since he doesn't know the music is turned up.

Revealing mistake: When they show a street shot of Kimble looking for Crisp, right before he walks into the salon, they show the marquee of the movies that are being shown. Listed on the marquee it says " Jamie Gerts." It should be " Gertz" (00:10:00)

A Simple Plan (1998)

Revealing mistake: As Jacob is changing the tire, there is a hint of sunlight out as he and Hank are talking. As Hank returns from the plane, it's snowing and grey outside, as you see Jacob club Dwight. As Hank finishes killing Dwight, it's still snowing, but when Hank and Jacob discuss that he wasn't completely being dead, it's back to having sunlight and no snow falling.

Revealing mistake: When Andy hits the pothole, - watch where the bike lands. It's almost immediately next to him. Andy pops up and says he's fine - the bike is nowhere near where it first landed.

48 Hours (1982)

Stupidity: The fact that Nolte even gives in to Eddie's demands is ridiculous. Why not just interview him in prison, ask him where to look for certain people, etc, and if it's a dead end, report back and ask for further tips, etc. They had zero problem going to prison and asking Kirkland Smith in the sequel.

Three's Company (1977)

Jack in the Flower Shop - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: Once Jack arrives home from his first day, Janet follows shortly behind him with her arms full of groceries. She hands the bag to Chrissy but watch at the bottom of the bag - it starts to come apart and Chrissy grabs the bottom of it and holds it together. The end sight gag is that when Jack storms out, and Janet storms off, Chrissy then goes to go to the kitchen, and the groceries fall out of the bag at the bottom - but it's because then she's holding the bag then around the center.

Trading Places (1983)

Continuity mistake: When there is an overhead shot inside of Winthrop's house when Billy Ray is giving a party, look down on the right hand side - a lady in a black dress is passed out, with her legs draped over a guy's lap. The next scene is a close up, and she's now lying against his chest (head first), then the next scene, she's back lying at the other end of the couch with her legs draped over his lap.

Trading Places (1983)

Question: Don't you have to have a license to be a stockbroker? And how did Billy Ray get a name tag made already with "Val" on it - wouldn't he had to submit or show his license to get said tag?

ckbyers

Answer: The Duke brothers would have arranged all that as part of their "experiment." Since they had no idea of the plan to con them, Billy Ray's credentials would still be valid.

Porky's (1982)

Question: So when the guys first walk into Porky's - and they're confronted by Porky (at the request of Mickey who wanted to see him), Porky makes the comment that they're "Five Angel Beach pussies" - how did he know they're from Angel Beach? I am assuming that the guy at the door who checked the ID's was looking at the ages, but why and how did he relay it to Porky that that's where they're from?

ckbyers

Answer: They also dressed differently, more proper than the regulars at Porky's.

lartaker1975

Answer: Porky's place is supposed to be in the middle of nowhere, the closes town is Angel Beach.

Doesn't make it that they had to be from there - I've driven several miles for things and passed through several towns to get to it, doesn't make it so that I'm from the neighbouring town.

ckbyers

Answer: Okay but my question was/is - the guy at the door never conveyed it to Porky that they had Angel Beach people there - given that Porky's pen was upstairs when summoned. Seems to me movies actually show would show that part to keep the fluidity of the movie going to have it makes sense.

ckbyers

Answer: The guy at the door would need to check their IDs to confirm that they were 21 or over, which they weren't because Porky could get into big trouble with the law if it was ever found out that some underage students got into his bar. That, and when making the fake ID's, they would need the name of the town of where they're from to make them look genuine which is how Porky knew where they're from.

Mountain Wedding - S3-E31

Plot hole: When Barney and Andy are on the street watching the window painter, Andy looks over and says "I believe that's Briscoe Darlin's truck!" - but when they were driving up to his place the next morning, they both got out of the car and were wondering where their house was they heard music playing. The next scene shows them pulling in - seems that if he was able to recognize the truck in town, he would have been able to recognize the truck and they could have drove around looking until they found it?

Porky's (1982)

Revealing mistake: When Jarvis and Tommy are driving to school, and he asked if they got the black guy, the sun is overhead - but when they get to school, and they're walking and talking about it, the sun is to the left - like it's mid-morning around 930. You can see the shifts in the sun for about a span of about 4 minutes during that time. (00:04:50)

Show generally

Plot hole: In the episode where Barney confronts the two farmers for selling produce on the side of the road, Barney mentions that they're not allowed to sell because of "section 17.4" of the ordinance code - that street vending is not allowed, and Andy confirms it. but in the episode The Merchant of Mayberry (I think), Bert comes to town and is selling dry goods, etc. and he's allowed to sell. Even Ben states that there must be a structure if he's selling - wouldn't you think that Andy and Barney would have known that already before setting him up to sell?
