Pride and Prejudice

Show generally

Revealing mistake: When Lizzy is playing the piano-forte at Rosings for Mr. Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam, her arm movements show that the actress isn't trying to make it look like she's playing the instrument at all.

Show generally

Character mistake: Mrs. Reynolds, the housekeeper at Pemberley, refers to Mr. Darcy's late mother as Mrs. Darcy while showing Elizabeth and her aunt and uncle the house. This is a grave mistake on the part of the filmmakers as she should have been referred to as Lady Anne, the way her sister is known as Lady Catherine. Their father was an Earl, making them Ladies by birth, not by marriage. Hence, they must be called Lady followed by their first name.
