Total Recall picture

The Crying Game picture

Jumper picture

Other mistake: Shortly after David and Griffin jump to Japan, Griffin goes to a car dealership and takes a Mercedes. The car should have its steering on the right side of the car but it's on the left. Griffin is also driving on the right side of the street rather than on the left.

Suggested correction: Whilst cars in Japan are generally RHD, it's not impossible to buy LHD models. This goes especially for European imports, where LHD is even considered somewhat of a status symbol.

Inside Man picture

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, after the cops storm the bank, all the cops walk into the vault, and as the camera follows them into the vault, you can hear the camera hit the metal vault door, and visibly see the camera shake from hitting it. (01:38:15)

Falling Down picture

Other mistake: In the 15th minute, in the scene where the two gangsters first spot Michael Douglas, one is smoking a cigarette and smokes it backwards. The tan filter is visible on the end of the cigarette.

Hollow Man picture

Other mistake: After the veterinarian throws blood all over the floor, we see clean spots appear on the floor in the shape of Sebastian's feet as he walks through the blood. Somehow he never has any of it stick to the bottom of his feet (even when he's in the puddle).

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country picture

Other mistake: When Sulu tells Kirk he is coming to help, he states the Excelsior is currently in the Alpha Quadrant. The problem is the the Alpha Quadrant in the Star Trek universe is one quarter of the total Milky Way Galaxy. While technically correct, Sulu giving his position as in the Alpha Quadrant is useless to Kirk in terms of knowing when to expect help. It doesn't matter where Khitomer is in the galaxy. Sulu saying he is in the Alpha Quadrant gives Kirk absolutely no idea of when he will arrive. He could be anywhere from 5 minutes away to 5 weeks away or even further. Remember, it was originally projected to take Voyager 70 years to go from the Delta Quadrant back to the Federation in the Alpha Quadrant.

Suggested correction: The implication is that Excelsior has only very recently crossed the border from the Beta Quadrant to the Alpha Quadrant.

Willard picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Willard is in his bedroom closet, he is trying to block the hole that Ben has created. On a closet shelf there is a Christmas Decorations box. The exact same box can be seen on a shelf behind his boss in the office supply room. (01:01:55 - 01:09:30)

The Grudge picture

Other mistake: When Sarah Michelle Gellar is on the bus with her boyfriend, she sees Kayako face looking at her in the window reflection and panics. When she looks back at the window she sees the normal reflection of her face. Trouble is, her reflection is turning her head and looking side to side, whilst Gellar herself is looking straight and not moving her head at all.

Flightplan picture

Other mistake: When either Kyle or Carson run down the staircase the rails move significantly. On a real plane this would not have passed the pre-flight safety checks and the plane would have been grounded. Nothing in the film suggests the rails would have loosened.

Fatal Attraction picture Fatal Attraction mistake picture

Other mistake: After Dan visits his wife in the hospital, he goes to Alex's apartment. In the scene where he's chasing Alex and crashes into the glass door, shattering it, look closely at his face and you'll see it's not Michael Douglas but a stunt double. A few seconds later when they are struggling in the kitchen, look again and you'll see the same stunt double.

Spy Game picture

Other mistake: During the scenes in Beirut, we see a picture of a militiaman firing an RPG at an armored vehicle. If you look at the launcher, you can see that there is no grenade in the launcher when it is "fired."

Backdraft picture

Other mistake: When the firefighter is fighting with the arsonist, the gas line is disconnected from the fireplace. Just before the dramatic explosion, the gas line ignites. This is incorrect because the fire would have started from the outlet to the gas (from ignition source to fuel source).

Alien 3 picture

Other mistake: The alien that comes out of the dog is a lot bigger than the actual dog just seconds after it appears. This only applies to the theatrical version, as in the extended version the alien comes out of an ox.

Boiler Room picture

Other mistake: In the scenes after Giovanni Ribisi is arrested, his looks are constantly changing. In scenes where he is talking to Vin Disel his face is very fat. When he walks by Abby's desk he is thin again. If you get Boiler Room on DVD you'll see an original ending where Ribisi is thin all the way through the end of the movie; Because Giovanni was preparing for a film that required him to gain 30 something pounds, the scenes that needed to be reshot for a different ending are very defined.

The Crow: Wicked Prayer picture The Crow: Wicked Prayer mistake picture

Other mistake: In the opening scenes, when the gang is introduced, one of the members kicks three men and knocks them out, but you can see he misses all of them by at least 6 inches.

Android Apocalypse picture

Other mistake: When Joey Lawrence gets his hand cut off by the human, he wakes up to find his arm where his hand used to be wrapped in some kind of black cloth. It's obviously his hand that is wrapped up because the wrap sticks out too far to be only wrapping his wrist. Plus it is also bulky which gives away the hand underneath.
