Other mistake: In all the shots of ET wearing the white sheet the two eye holes are about a foot apart, so he could see out of the holes properly, but when Michael finds the white sheet ET had been wearing he lifts the material and we see that the two eye holes are only about two inches apart, which makes no sense. (It was Gertie's sheet which had eye holes that close together).Super Grover
Other mistake: When Deckard visits the Tyrell Corporation, he prepares to test Rachel with the "VK" machine. He is shown putting his briefcase of the table and lifting the "VK" machine out and onto the table. If you look closely, the "VK" machine is already on the table and Harrison Ford is miming the lifting - there is nothing in his hands! (00:19:45)
Other mistake: The brief chess game (four moves) shown in the beginning of the movie makes absolutely no sense. For instance: There are no white bishops on the board, but after the human player taps a few buttons, the computer says that he just moved one. Within the two moves described first, the positions of the pieces change completely. In addition, some pieces are now gone and there are new pieces on the board. It's like an entirely different game. The final move is said to have been made with a black rook, which is impossible. In the shot shown before this move, there is not a single position available to that chess piece that would result in an instant checkmate. Nothing in the editing indicates that these few short shots are supposed to be viewed as separate games. (00:04:50)
Other mistake: Eugene is suspended above the stage with the box of paper leaves and snowflakes ready to throw them down at the correct moments; but when the Fall section of Girl For All Seasons is on he doesn't throw any leaves. Also, the amount of snow coming down over the stage at the Winter section is completely disproportionate to how widely and evenly Eugene could distribute it.
Other mistake: During many of the scenes of the Reliant in space, you can see stars through the dark parts of the engine nacelles.
Other mistake: In the scene where Charlotte is in the bathroom and Chuck is trying to get her to come to bed, there is a shot of an alarm clock on a shelf above the bed. The time at the beginning of the scene is 1:03. The time never changes throughout the scene, even after Chuck goes to close the drapes and check the apartment. The clock is obviously a prop and is not plugged in.Tina Gilliam
Other mistake: The shape of the crystal shard is all wrong. In a flashback scene a urSkek is seen "shattering" the original, pure crystal by hitting it with a rod on one of the crystal's flat surfaces. For argument's sake we will say that in their universe it would be possible for this to create a spear-shaped hole in the crystal. However, the top of the shard is a rounded surface; it should have a flat, slanted top to match the top of the hole it came out of. Could pieces have broken off the top of the shard to give it the rounded shape? If that were true the final solution would not have worked; only the whole, pure crystal would restore the urSkeks.BocaDavie
Other mistake: When Miss Farrell and Mr Warbucks are looking for Annie, Punjab tells Miss Farrell which bridge Annie is at, but when Miss Farrell relays the info, she only says "They're on the bridge", and yet Mr Warbucks says "I know, I know" as if he KNEW which bridge she was talking about.
Other mistake: In the Ring Game, Flynn throws a shot that Crom catches and returns. When the shot hits Flynn's rings, it takes out the third and fourth ring. Problem is that any other time, the impact only takes out the ring that it hit. Close inspection shows a solid hit on the fourth ring only. The only explanation is that since Flynn continues and jumps the "gap" in the rings, this was a deliberate set up to bring the end to this sequence and move the movie forward.Movie Nut
Other mistake: The creep tells us that this is the first issue, but mere seconds after the famous ending of Father's Day we see fan mail on the second page, impossible for the first issue. (00:21:05)
Other mistake: Why is it that Marge only discovers the microchip in the Silver Shamrock badge when it drops on the floor in the motel room? Surely she would have noticed it when her son would have thrown the mask against the wall, and it dropped off? Any normal person would have looked at it to see how it would have attached to the mask.
New this month Other mistake: When McCroskey gets the information about Joe Seluchi, he's told that Seluchi purchased life insurance and was impotent. McCroskey informs Ted about Seluchi and the bomb he's carrying but nothing else. When Ted confronts Seluchi, he mentions both the insurance and the impotence.
