Back to the Future Part II pictureBack to the Future Part II mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Notice Marty's hair in the scene when he's playing "Johnny B. Goode." It's quite larger than when he says, some seconds later, "I guess that you're not ready for it yet." That's because when he says that, it's a recycled shot from the original BTTF, whereas most shots showing he's playing the guitar are newly made for BTTF2. However, Marty's hair is considerably longer in the new shots.

American Angels: Baptism of Blood picture

Plot hole: They seem to break a lot of rules in the main event between Mimi Lesseos and Jan Mackenzie's. They brawl outside the ring long enough to be counted out, choke outs on the ropes long enough to be disqualified are some examples.
