Rob245

Continuity mistake: When the blonde wrestler falls out of the ring she hurts her right side, area above her hip, clutching it. When Larry Hagman tries touching it he touches the left side instead.

Rob245

Other mistake: When April views the tapes of her dad she's around 10-11 in them, but Sachs looks the same as he does in the film and this took place in the past perhaps 15 years, before current times.

Hey Arnold! (1996)

Suggested correction: Not all cemeteries open and close at the same time.

That is very true. It should also be noted that not all cemeteries have overnight security or padlocked gates. So even if the cemetery was closed, the kids could still get in if this was a cemetery that isn't heavily surveilled.

Prom Night (1980)

Plot hole: If they've got a suspect for Robin's death why didn't they question him and make sure his alibi was true or not? It's never revealed, just them seemingly assuming this guy did it.

The Dark Knight (2008)

Factual error: When the lady wrestler falls out of the ring she lands on front row seats, pro wrestling doesn't allow chairs that close and there's no barricade there either.

Rob245

Stupidity: Unless Snow has solid proof like pictures or video why should Katniss believe her main enemy's word that it was Alma Coin, not him, who killed those kids?

Suggested correction: This is a question and not a stupidity. Katniss didn't just accept Snow at his word. Earlier Gale had mentioned an attack strategy to inflict maximum casualties on medics that matched the attack on the Capitol. Then Gale could not deny his part in Prim's death. All the evidence pointed to Coin being responsible as Snow suggested.

Chloe (2009)

Continuity mistake: Catherine goes home after sex with Chloe yet she later receives a picture on her phone from Chloe in which she's asleep afterwards. When did she fall asleep?

Rob245

Suggested correction: There's no indication that she went straight home. Lots of people doze off after sex.

Prom Night (1980)

Continuity mistake: When Robin lays there after she dies her head's facing forward, a shot later her head's turned to her left.

Prom Night (1980)

Question: Why in the world is Alex, when unmasked at the end, wearing lipstick? Symbolic or something?

Rob245

Answer: Alex is not the typical one dimensional slasher serial killer, but rather a complex individual with conflicting motivations. The lipstick is a symbol that he is portraying the hurtful people from his past even as he kills them.

Answer: The film doesn't provide an answer (which I think is a good thing). My interpretation is that Alex has somehow absorbed his sister's spirit, symbolically (not literally), and is avenging her death *as* Robin, in a way. Her name is his last word before he dies. A scene was shot but cut which revealed that Robin and Alex were twins. That scene was added back to the television edit of Prom Night.

I thought they said that when Kim was telling Nick on the hilltop where the beach was that Alex and Robin were TWINS! And what happened to Mr. And Mrs. Hammond? They "disappeared" after Kim and her father danced! So many QUESTIONS! And when did they say LOU was KIM'S EX? Missed that one.

Run Lola Run (1998)

Plot hole: Mannie gives his boss the money in time minus the amount the homeless man used. What's to say he won't come looking for him later upon discovering the amount gone, see Lola's casino winnings, think his employee ripped him off then kill both of them before taking the money?

Rob245

Suggested correction: The money that the homeless spent is not that significant. He can make up that amount by himself.

Below the Belt (1980)

Other mistake: Rosa and her co-worker couldn't possibly be watching Terrible Tommy as she and Princess War Star enter the arena as the movie starts. Because later on they're shown wrestling in that same arena wearing those same outfits wrestling, a sign that scene was shot at a different time or a part of the wrestling scene where Rosa and another wrestler are watching Tommy.

Rocky IV (1985)

Stupidity: Considering Rocky keeps hitting Drago after the bell sounds to end the round in their main event fight shouldn't he be disqualified?

Rob245

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: This is up to the discretion of the ref. If he deems the strikes to not be particularly egregious he can let the fight continue. Even if they are deemed illegal strikes, that doesn't mean that Rocky will be automatically disqualified. The ref can dock a point from Rocky instead, which he very well might have done at some point which we never see. Since Rocky wins by knockout having a point docked doesn't matter.

Kiss the Girls (1997)

Plot hole: Given that police departments, the FBI, and the CIA do intense screening of potential candidates how did Casanova slip between the cracks? He's clever but surely somebody would've noticed something.

Rob245

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: In truth, there have been plenty of real life corrupt cops, and even cops that were secretly serial killers. If they managed to slip through the cracks, then it's not outside of the realm of possibility that Casanova was able to, too. So this is definitely not a mistake.

The Faculty (1998)

Question: Why are the aliens in that town? If they come from a oceanic planet then why not go directly into one of our five or so oceans?

Rob245

Answer: The aliens needed fresh water. All the infected were drinking bottled water. When the gang were examining the slug in the garage, it dried up and died from salt, like a snail.

Answer: Whales and dolphins also lack manipulating appendages and the ability to survive on land.

LorgSkyegon

Answer: The aliens need to infect intelligent life to thrive. There is no intelligent life in our oceans.

BaconIsMyBFF

That is not exactly true. Whales and dolphins are considerably intelligent, arguably near human-level, and live in complex social groups.

raywest Premium member

Answer: Well if they need to stay hydrated whales and dolphins make more sense than inhabiting people.

Rob245

Dolphins and whales are also far less numerous. With populations numbering fewer than 10 million total across all species versus nearly 6 billion at the time for humanity.

LorgSkyegon

Answer: It could be the salt or pollution. The aliens were drinking nothing but pure bottled water.

Good answer. Dang all you guys on this site are pretty good at this. I enjoy these answers you give since hardly anybody ever listens to me.

Rob245

Question: Why would April abandon Splinter and the turtles to the sewers? If they were her pets why abandon them? Why not take them home?

Rob245

Answer: She was trying to send them away to save them from the experiments. The first place to search if some experimental animals get lost are the houses of the people that are involved.

Swimfan (2002)

Other mistake: If Madison can't swim then how is she going in the water, up to her shoulders, towards Ben prior to them having sex?

Rob245

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: She trusts Ben will not let her drown and holds on to him, keeping her up.

LorgSkyegon

No if you watch she's several feet in there away from him and the ladder behind her and this is the deep end of the pool.

Rob245

Factual error: One scene shows the elephants bathing. During which you can see a car/van passing behind the trees in the background.

Rob245

Continuity mistake: Liana is barefoot most of the movie yet at the chief's village she's shown wearing black ankle socks.
