Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home picture

Other mistake: After they take off from California, Kirk gives a heading to Alaska. He then tells Sulu "full impulse power", and Sulu says "aye, ETA 12 minutes." Full impulse is 1/4 the speed of light. No way they would use speeds like that to go a few thousand miles.

The Karate Kid Part II picture

Other mistake: When Chozen is buying vegetables from the villagers, one of the weights from the scale is knocked onto the ground. Daniel picks it up and realises that its not a real weight and breaks it in half. If Chozen wanted to cheat the villagers when he weighed their vegetables, he would need weights that were heavier than normal, not lighter plastic ones. Lighter weights would mean that Chozen would need to add far more of the light weights to make any amount of vegetables balance out, therefore he would be paying more for the vegetables than they are worth.

Stand By Me picture

Other mistake: Teddy's hair changes in every shot after being dunked in the swamp. The strap to his bag disappears and reappears as well.

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives picture

Other mistake: In the final scene of the movie, Megan starts a boat motor and uses the propeller to hit Jason in the face, who has been chained down underwater. But if Jason can only barely reach her foot from underwater, there's no way the boat propeller is underwater far enough to reach his face. (01:17:50)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The boat was driven a good ways, it's not like they were shallow and then all of a sudden deep. They were deep for a little bit. I mean not so deep like the ocean, but it was a good enough ways for someone to drown. Megan is tall for a girl and Jason is a big guy and the propeller is right at his head/neck.

Aliens picture

Other mistake: When the autoguns fire at the aliens for the second time, there is a flashcut of an alien being blasted apart. Watch closely; it's the same clip of the alien that Vasquez shot and subsequently sprayed Drake with acid. (01:18:00)

Ferris Bueller's Day Off picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Cameron is sinking in the pool you can clearly see some kind of weight belt or something around his waist, which isn't there when he is out of the pool.

Labyrinth picture

Other mistake: In Sarah's room, after the close-ups of Lancelot's empty shelf space and of Sarah beginning to say, "Someone..." as she finishes, "..has been in my room again," in this wide shot, while still on her bed until she leaves her room, there is a mark across Sarah's forehead that extends to the left side her eye. It isn't in the previous or following shots. (00:06:40)

Back to School picture

Other mistake: After his wife has a party at their house, Thorton Melon (Dangerfield) decides to have a swim in his pool. The camera shows Melon as he is about to dive into the pool from the edge. The camera cuts away and a much "thinner" Melon is seen doing a flip into the water. Watch carefully as the "thinner" man makes his dive. You can clearly see his hairpiece fly off the top of his head.

Three Amigos picture

Other mistake: During the final showdown with El Guapo, three horsemen ride towards some fake Amigos and fall into a concealed ditch, throwing up their arms and falling off their horses. Unfortunately, they throw up their arms just before the horses even start to fall.

The Hitcher picture

Other mistake: The Hitcher reverses his pick-up truck out of the gas station after he drops the lighted match. His wheels, wheel arches and perhaps the underside of the truck would have been soaked in petrol as he drove over the gushing pumps. So as he was burning rubber during this manoeuvre - this would have ignited the petrol on his truck.

Space Camp picture

Other mistake: When they first get into space and Tish removes her helmet her left earring is free floating, which would be expected in zero gravity. But after this first shot, her earrings hang down as effected by gravity. Also all three of the girls hair hang down with gravity the whole time they are in space. (00:54:45 - 01:03:15)

An American Tail picture

Other mistake: When Fievel And Tony reunite on the streets of New York, Tony gets a piece of cheese off of a mouse trap. Watch that piece of cheese, cause Tony throws it up in the air, and you never see it come back down. (00:33:25)

Short Circuit picture

Other mistake: The tree used to hold up Number 2 is very thin and weak looking, yet it supposed to be supporting a 400lb robot. Strong tree. (01:13:25)

Platoon picture

Other mistake: After the brief fight between Barnes & Chris, when Barnes has Chris pinned, he cuts him below the left eye with a knife. It is a quick cut with a sharp knife, but instead of a thin bright red line we see instantly a blob of dark blood. This is plain sloppy.

Cobra picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Stallone is at the shooting range, after he leaves the morgue, when he pulls out his gun, you can see a target's reflection in a glass pane in front of Stallone. He points the gun at the target and shoots, but the glass is in the way.

The Fly picture

Other mistake: When Seth comes out of the pod for the second time and the girl is watching him she moves her leg reveling panties. However, Seth comes over and they start intercourse. How? He doesn't even move her underwear to one side.

Children of a Lesser God picture

Other mistake: When Sarah smokes in James' office he tells her that he doesn't like it because of the fire hazard. Therefore, it doesn't fit in the picture that he doesn't react when she puts out her cigarette in the waste paper basket, certainly a serious fire hazard and worth checking even if James' comment had been a joke. (00:22:40)

Crocodile Dundee picture

Other mistake: When Nick and Sue go to the outback with Wally they go by car then by boat (the only way to get to where Mick was bitten, apparently). Once they are there the poachers from the pub appear on their jeeps to hunt kangaroos. So there was a direct way by car to the spot.
