Rambo: First Blood Part II picture

Continuity mistake: When Rambo fires the rocket launcher at the Russian Hind helicopter, he is clearly seen aiming a LAW rocket launcher. The LAW is fired by pressing a lever on the top. But when Rambo fires, a quick edit from a previous shot (on the patrol boat) shows him pulling a trigger from the Russian RPG launcher he used to dispatch the Vietnamese patrolboat earlier in the film. The film returns to show him holding the LAW rocket launcher again.

Cocoon picture

Continuity mistake: When the Antereans go into the sea for about the second time I think, Jack stays on the boat and starts playing about with the machine and makes it go off.

Ladyhawke picture

Continuity mistake: After Philippe the Mouse escapes from the prison and has swam out the underwater grate hole, another scene shows soldiers riding through the peasants leaving the castle to search for him. In the background, two soldiers can be seen sitting by the moat, eating. One stands and grabs suddenly around his belt, obviously looking around for something. A while after this in a separate scene, Philippe the Mouse is shown surfacing in the moat behind these two soldiers and grabbing the knife from beside one of them and slicing away a cord on the soldiers belt and stealing his coin purse, then swimming away quietly and saying the line about 'I know I promised not to steal Lord, but I know, that you know, what a weak-willed person I am...' Obviously the scene with the soldier standing suddenly and discovering his missing coin purse should have come after the actual 'stealing of the purse' scene.

American Ninja picture

Continuity mistake: During the first 20 minutes of the movie, Patricia is wearing a pearl necklace. When she is shown sitting in the car, it is a double string of pearls. After she has crashed the car and climbs out, it is a single string of pearls. When she and Joe are running through the jungle, it is once again a double string, and when she returns home it is a single string again. This can not be explained by the necklace being a long string of pearls that's draped twice around her neck, as the necklace is always shown to reach just below her throat, and a longer string would reach further down.
