Caddyshack (1980)

Corrected entry: As the group gathers for the illegal tournament, Al Czervik takes a call from a phone in his golf bag; Dr. Beeper receives a page, and asks to use the phone (Czervik holds the phone between them). In the midst of this chaos, Lou (the ref) screams to get everyone's attention; when Czervik and Beeper turn to look at him, the phone is completely absent from the shot.


Correction: When it cuts back to Al, you can see part of the phone cord going into the bag, which shakes the clubs a bit. There's plenty of time for Al to drop the phone off camera (which would retracted back into the bag and out of the next shot).

Tower Heist (2011)

Corrected entry: As the Ferrari is lowered down the building, its orientation changes from shot to shot; sometimes the underside of the car faces the windows, other times the top of the car. (01:19:25)


Correction: If you watch the scene where Matthew Broderick is hanging on to the bumper of the car, a camera shot from the roof looking down shows the car spinning around multiple times while hanging from the wire. This explains why one side would be facing different directions in different shots: because it actually was changing direction while spinning.

Corrected entry: As a professional synthesizer, the Yamaha DX7 did not have any accompaniment and rhythm components as utilized by the President when greeting the robot. None of the DX-series had anything like that. This was "incorrectly corrected."


Correction: We're talking about a keyboard intended to communicate with alien species, so modification is almost certain. For all we know, ALL of the electronics in the keyboard were replaced or modified.
