Kill Bill: Volume 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bill is cutting the crusts off a sandwich towards the end, he cuts two off, goes to remove the third, then the angle changes and he's now cutting it in half. After that we hear him sweep the crusts off the board and see him hand the sandwich to BB, then a shot or two later crusts are back on the board and he cleans them off again to make another sandwich.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the sequence where Obi-wan goes to meet Yoda regarding the absence of Kamino from the Jedi Archives, look closely at the collection of children Yoda is training. While most are human, there is one that is alien, with a reptilian face of dark skin. He sure moves fast, because at first he is at the back in the centre of the group of trainees, in the next shot he is at the front of the group of trainees, and by the end of the scene, he is on the far left, yet we never see him, or any of the other children, move. (00:36:25)

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Ace is sneaking into Ronald Camp's Private Aquarium, he begins to look around and open some doors. If you look at the colour of the wall it is red. When he opens the door to the giant tank, the wall outside the door (which should be red) is now white. The door also reverses - the handle goes from Ace's left to Ace's right. (00:28:50)
