Continuity mistake: At the end, Trent texts Malcolm that he's "in library", however when Malcolm looks at the text on his phone, the "in" is missing.

Revealing mistake: When the cop car hits the Winnebago to chase the Blues Brothers, we see a puff of white smoke emit from under the cop car as it rolls over that was used to help flip it. The pole can also be seen rolling around near the top of the screen in that same shot.

Continuity mistake: After the cop car hits the Winnebago, we see the car's back window is completely gone in two separate shots. However, when the camera angle does a close up on the car, we see a cop pushing out the rear windshield which was simply not there the shot before.

Continuity mistake: At the end when Barry puts the Evel Knievel display on top it's off center to the right of the box below it. When they cut to the next shot far away it's centered, only to go back to being off when they go close up again.

Continuity mistake: The amount of urine (apple juice) that Austin hands to the doctor seems to vary up and down between shots as he's spilling it all over.

Zookeeper (2011)

Revealing mistake: When Gryffin first hears the animals take to him, he runs home and at one point takes a bath. If you look at the bubbles, they move in a solid mass when he shifts around in the tub indicating they are not only fake but not real bubbles.

Lake Placid (1999)

Factual error: Grizzly bears are not present as far East as Maine and therefore would not have been anywhere near Lake Placid.

Terra Nova (2011)

Genesis - Part 1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Skye and Josh are swimming by the rocks with the geometric drawings. When they get out of the water they focus on Josh and it's sunny on both of them, and overcast when they focus on Skye, from shot to shot.

WarGames (1983)

Continuity mistake: Towards the end when the NORAD door is closing, they keep showing it opened further from shot to shot in order to delay how quickly the door actually is closing vs. how slow it really would have had to move in order to allow David and Dr. Falken to actually have still made it in.

WarGames (1983)

Factual error: While it makes for a great story for the movie, the reality is that all computer systems used by government agencies - especially in the DoD - are required to provide their source code for thorough inspection to ensure there are no back doors, hidden subroutines or other types of software code that are not relevant to the task designed for. Given the critical nature of this system being in control of launching nuclear missiles, the reality is that none of the games that Falken wrote - much less the whole routine to allow it to simulate a game like this - would still be in, for obvious reasons. Of course it could be argued Falken hid this, however given the lack of complexity for a computer of this era, it's highly unlikely.

Pitch Black (2000)

Other mistake: When Fry is looking around for Riddick at the end, she's holding the blue bottle of bugs to light her way. The blue light on her face isn't from the bottle as she holds it, as she's circling around in some cases with the bottle completely behind her, yet her face is still lit up blue.

The Gate (1987)

Other mistake: Despite the noise of the demon in the house, the tornado clouds outside, the flashing lights from the demon exploding and the fireworks in the sky - not a single neighbor is anywhere to be seen. Even after daylight breaks the neighborhood is a ghost town as we pan away from the actors.

Continuity mistake: When Pee Wee walks up to the bums at the drive in, the soda falls over in the holder in his right arm. When he steps in to give them their snow cones, it's instantly standing again only to see it fallen over again when he watches the fight scene with the ninjas on screen.

Revealing mistake: Throughout the studio scene where Pee Wee is shot from the front being chased by security, the fact that his bike is on a rig can be seen by how rigid the bike is when he pedals it and it doesn't move side to side like it does when he's riding it freely in all the other shots.

jerimiah

Revealing mistake: After the bar scene where Pee Wee leaves riding the motorcycle, we can see it's a stuntman, given the different physique of having wider shoulders and a fuller head of hair than that of Pee Wee.

Bridesmaids (2011)

Continuity mistake: When Annie is driving on a 2 lane country road between two large fields from the bridal shower, we see Megan drive past her with the car full of puppies. The issue is that Megan was filmed on an entirely different road that has a fence, walkway, double yellow line and is 4 lanes wide - nowhere near what Annie is driving on.

Continuity mistake: After throwing the candy to the bikers, Pee Wee is holding a box of Milk Duds and a candy bar. After he watches himself in the movie, the candy bar disappears then reappears behind the Milk Duds between shots. Then in the next shot of him skipping towards Dottie - all of the candy disappears completely.

jerimiah

Other mistake: The security footage that Terry shows of Pee Wee going through the Godzilla set is simply a black and white version of the same footage we see as movie watchers of the film, not from the camera being used to shoot the movie.
