Glee (2009)

Duets - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: Season 2, episode 4 (Duets): When Brittany lifts Artie from his chair and carries him to her bed, right before she puts him down, he is obviously lifting his feet to prevent them from bumping into the bedframe.

Glee (2009)

Dream On - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Artie tries to walk with crutches after the "step dance" practice with Tina, he falls down violently. Immediately after the fall, the crutch is still attached to his left arm, which is angled away from his body. In the very next shot, the crutch is almost a foot away from his arm, which lies now at a different angle.

Continuity mistake: At the school assembly, Mary plays the keyboard. She raises one of her hands in the air, then puts it back down - but in the next shot, it's up again.

As Long As We're Together (2) - S5-E2

Revealing mistake: When Charles Ingalls plays his fiddle at the end of the episode, one can see from the movement of his hands that he is not really playing, but just pretending. (Also visible in every other episode where Charles plays the fiddle, but most obvious in this one.).

Saved! (2004)

Continuity mistake: After Cassandra says that she put something rotten (ham?) into Hilary Faye's locker, Hilary Faye is seen with her turtleneck over her face. Cassandra pulls it down a bit, but in the next shot it is up again and looks unchanged.

Saved! (2004)

Continuity mistake: In the restroom, after Cassandra finds out that Mary really is pregnant, she hugs her. In the wide shot, Mary's face is in another position than in the close-up shot.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sirius lies at the lake and Harry kneels next to him, Sirius seems unconscious, then opens his eyes in terror as he sees the Dementors. However, in the very next shot, which shows the two from above, his eyes are suddenly closed and there's no sign of movement in his face. Too big a change, too fast.

Trivia: There's been some discussion whether Lucius Malfoy starts saying "Avada-" or "Vera-" after Harry freed Dobby. It's not so easy to decide in the English version, although the DVD subtitles say "Vera-". In the German version, it's a lot easier, he says "Avada-" without any doubt. So it seems either the translators did not read the original script, or Malfoy does say "Avada-" in the English version (and they tried to cover it up for some reason by using a different subtitle). For those who have not read past book three, "Avada" is the first part of the spell "Avada Kedavra", a powerful killing spell that is highly illegal in the wizarding world. This is why this piece of trivia is important - many fans are perplexed as to why dear Lucius was performing such a spell directly outside Dumbledore's office. Jason Isaacs was not told what spell to use for the scene, so he improvised and started to say the first one that came to mind. He did, indeed, say 'Avada', the first word of the killing curse.

Continuity mistake: After Frodo has been wrapped in the spider web, Sam tries to rescue him and frees his face. In the next shots, the web is sometimes over Frodo's chin and sometimes under it, although no one touched it.

Question: How does Will get out of the sinking Interceptor? He is stuck there, it's full of water. Several minutes later (it must be some time later, because the Black Pearl had time to move away) the ship explodes, and Will shows up. How did he do that?

nightline

Chosen answer: Heavy objects are easier to lift when submerged in water. It is quite possible that once submerged, he was able to lift a hatch that he was not able to do before.

Love Actually (2003)

Question: Who plays the guy who goes to America and comes back with the two girls? I'm sure I've seen him before, but I can't remember in which movies.

nightline

Chosen answer: I'm not sure if he's done any movies but he's called Kris Marshall, and is in a British sitcom called My Family starring Robert Lindsay and Zoe Wanamaker. He plays Nick, the hilariously ditzy eldest son. He's also in The Four Feathers with Heath Ledger.

Continuity mistake: After Neo has been blinded, his eyes and everything around them is burned and red. Right after the fight, when Trinity sees him blind for the first time, his eyes (or eyelids) are grey, and only the rest is red.

Bad Boys II (2003)

Revealing mistake: In the first big chase scene the bad guys make the cars roll down from the car transport truck to block the street. You can see that there are stunt drivers sitting in some of those cars to keep them under control.

xx:xx:xx

nightline

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the bad guys ask John Hannah about the bracelet of Anubis (and he has no idea what they're talking about), they throw him on a chair, and one of the guys in red holds a knife to his throat. In the shots from the front, he also grabs John Hannah's hair with his other hand, in almost all of the shots from behind, he doesn't.

Revealing mistake: In the car chase, the girl keeps the steering wheel straight all the time (in the shot from inside the car), although the street is not straight at all. Must have been a self-steering car...

Continuity mistake: When Edward Norton shows the photo of himself, Jake and Anna as kids to the guy at the bar, he holds it with one hand in the wide shots (using his other hand to point at it), but with two hands in the close-up shot.
