Tombstone picture

Continuity mistake: When Curly Bill is shooting up the town while drunk, he fires about 10 more rounds than his six shooter can hold without reloading (so too many shots even if he had a second gun), and still has a round remaining when he shoots Marshal Fred White. In the 1880 court hearing held after Marshal White's death, Curly Bill still had 5 rounds remaining in his pistol.

Mrs. Doubtfire picture

Suggested correction: There might have been another lime in the back that Mrs. Doubtfire put in the previous spot.

This correction is too much of a stretch to be valid. There's nothing to suggest Daniel did this and he's not really off camera long enough to reset a lime (of the same exact size) and then get back into the position he's in when the camera is back on him.

The Fugitive picture

Continuity mistake: Kimble dyes his hair very dark to escape detection and dyed hair fades over time. For the rest of the movie his hair noticeably goes from darker shades to lighter shades and back again showing that the scenes were shot non-sequentially on different days with a fair amount of time in between.

Cool Runnings picture

Continuity mistake: When the bobsled team is getting their act together in Calgary, there's a scene of them pushing off with an unpainted bobsled. In the shots of the feet of the guys pushing at the back of the sled, you can see that the lower back of the sled is painted black with green stripes, the colours that they paint the sled in a scene a few minutes later.
