Spaceballs picture

Continuity mistake: The head of Mega-Maid mysteriously shrinks in size. After Spaceball-1 transforms into Mega-Maid, the head is gigantic enough for a Winnebago to fly through for a considerable length of time. However, later on in the film, after the head has been jettisoned and crashed on a beach, the head is only big enough to hold a few dozen people. This can be determined by the size of the people coming out of her nose.

G.I. Joe: The Movie picture

Continuity mistake: In the opening battle sequence, Cobra Commander takes a bomb and sets it for 3:00 minutes. As he flies with his jet pack to the Statue of Liberty, it counts down to 2:58. He lands and places the bomb, and laser blasts hit all around him before he turns and flies off. This takes about 5 seconds to do, but the timer on the bomb stays at 2:58 for the full time of him landing, placing the bomb, and flying away. (00:01:35)
