All the President's Men picture

Other mistake: The chronology of dates on the teletype printer at the end of the film are not in the correct order. We see "March 13, 1975" followed by "January 3, 1975", which is then followed by two August 1974 dates.

Confessions of a Driving Instructor picture

Revealing mistake: At the end of the film, when Tony crashes Tim's car at the driving test centre, you can see it has been changed for a wreck as just before he crashes there is damage to the front left hand side that wasn't there before.

Murder By Death picture

Continuity mistake: Right at the end when the man takes his mask off, a strand of blonde hair hangs out from the back of "his" head. In the next shot the hair is dark brown.

St. Ives picture

Continuity mistake: In the masked ball scene, St. Ives grabs a party goer and steals his mask which you then see him putting on. It is a gold mask without any markings that covers most of his face, but a few moments later when St. Ives dances with Flora, he is wearing a much smaller gold mask with black decorative markings.

Mother, Jugs & Speed picture

Continuity mistake: When Mother is pulling up to the burger joint, you see his partner with his car window open. He's even resting his arm on the door. The camera angle changes as they pull up to the drive through and you see his partner lowering his window down so they can place an order.

The Slipper and the Rose picture

Factual error: In the scene where Cinderella is in her new room at the Prince's castle, the roses prominently displayed in the foreground are brightly coloured Hybrid Tea roses (the pointy ones) which were not bred until the early 20th Century. In the 1700s (panniered skirts and powdered hair) the roses would have been of looser formation, with softer colours, e.g pink or cream cabbage roses. (These roses also appear in later scenes.)

Family Plot picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bruce Dern and Barbara Harris are eating hamburgers. He has two on his plate, from a back view she reaches over and takes one. He then removes the cap from the ketchup bottle. The shot switches to a view from his back and the cap is back on the ketchup. He then removes the cap again.

At the Earth's Core picture

Revealing mistake: During the scene when David is fighting off the large beast in the arena, there is a shot where you are looking right down its throat. Inside the "creature" you can see a light emanating from inside the mouth of the suit, probably so the actor inside could see while acting in it.

Sybil picture

Continuity mistake: When the psychiatrist is holding up the horse figurine, the way she's holding it in the closeup is quite different than in the wide shot.

The Big Bus picture

Factual error: At the start of the movie, the nuclear-powered articulated bus that is attempting a non-stop land run to Denver leaves New York City, but you can see the Rocky Mountains in the background.

Bound for Glory picture

Factual error: About 3/4 into the movie, in the scene where Woody is looking for a place to sleep, he comes upon this other man in a bunk. The guy in the bunk asks Woody if he wants to share his blanket with him because it is cold. Arlo does. In the next scene, outside, it shows the steam locomotive, and to the left of the steamer is a diesel locomotive. It is a Western Pacific GE logo. The movie is 1936 and WP diesels didn't show up till 1953. I was there.

Car Wash picture

Revealing mistake: When the supervisor is telling Geronimo to clean up the dog feces, there are three men across the street in front of Al's Coffee Shop watching the filming. (00:42:55)

Silent Movie picture

Plot hole: Funn, Eggs, and Bell, accompanied by Vilma, enter the theater, ready to show their finished Silent Movie project to the audience. However, only a night previous, Funn, inebriated, is rescued from the gutter, by his friends. A scene immediately following, shows them 'reviving' him with coffee. When did they find ample time to shoot their film? The time frame doesn't add up.

Never Too Young to Rock picture

Deliberate mistake: Its obvious at the concert that there is no audience in the venue and that the crowd noise is just sound effects.
