The Nightmare Before Christmas picture

Other mistake: When Jack first arrives in Christmas Land he doesn't know what is falling from the sky (snow) but he somehow knows that the children are throwing snowballs.

The Last Outlaw picture

Other mistake: The film is about a gang of Confederate soldiers after the Civil War, so a black man in the gang would seem a bit out of place.

Body of Evidence picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Madonna is pouring candle wax on Defoe, once they start having sex (with Madonna on top), you can clearly see Defoe's manhood poking out where it shouldn't. I realise they're not actually having sex, but shouldn't it be taped up out of sight?

Hocus Pocus picture

Other mistake: After the Sanderson sisters are done sucking the life out of Emily Binx, they do a little dance thing after they become younger. When either Winifred or Mary swings past her, Emily's leg moves even though she's supposed to be dead. She's also playing with her hands and bobbing her head.

Tombstone picture

Other mistake: When the Earp Brothers first arrive at Tombstone Fred White is telling them about the Cowboys and says "there's three of them now," the camera then shows four people wearing the red sash of the Cowboys.

Jurassic Park picture

Other mistake: When Dr Grant and the children reach the perimeter fence, Dr Grant tries to see if he can fit through, to no avail. When he and the kids start to climb, however, it is quite obvious that both Tim and Lex would have been able to crawl through quite easily, and that only Dr Grant should have had to climb over. Partly this links to the mistake here, where the holes in the fence are much bigger in the first shot, then when he tries to widen them he's holding a different part of the fence where they're smaller.

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday picture

Other mistake: In the scene at the beginning where Phil eats Jason's Heart, you'll notice that he screams like a monster for a bit. Don't you think that the two security guards would easily hear the screaming and intervene, being that they're in the very next room? (00:13:40)

Mrs. Doubtfire picture

Other mistake: When Chris sees Mrs. Doubtfire in the bathroom she is standing up and peeing, in costume. All the scenes where Daniel is putting the costume on shows that the fat suit is a body suit, in one piece, and there's no opening in the front. So he shouldn't have been able to pee without taking off the whole suit.

Suggested correction: Perhaps it can be assumed that he made the necessary alteration (cutting a slit in the bodysuit) before he started to wear it.

Falling Down picture

Other mistake: In the 15th minute, in the scene where the two gangsters first spot Michael Douglas, one is smoking a cigarette and smokes it backwards. The tan filter is visible on the end of the cigarette.

The Fugitive picture

Other mistake: When Kimble takes the elevator to the conference to confront Dr. Nichols, he presses a button, but the one beside it is the one that actually lights up. In this particular elevator, the button he pressed is the one that should have lit up.

Robocop 3 picture

Other mistake: When Robocop is being repaired by the homeless guys, you can see clearly his stomach going up and down as he breathes. If he's mechanical he shouldn't be breathing, and even if they kept that bit of his innards, he's covered in a titanium shell so we shouldn't be able to see anything moving anyway.

Cliffhanger picture

Other mistake: When Gabe and the bad guy are fighting on the helicopter on the side of the cliff look carefully at the rotor shaft - you can clearly see that it has changed. Earlier when it was on the ground you see the shaft and the scissors on it. When it is upside down the scissors have vanished and the rotor shaft has a different look to it.

The Joy Luck Club picture

Other mistake: During Waverly's second chess match, her opponent says "check" (and play continues) even though it is checkmate.

Merlin picture

Other mistake: During all of the Battle Scenes there isn't nearly enough blood on the swords. This is most apparent in the last fight.

More Merlin other mistakes
Carlito's Way picture

Other mistake: The scene in which Carlito and Kleinfeld are disposing of a body off of Kleinfeld's yacht, it is obvious that the body walks across the top of the yacht, even though they are supposed to be carrying him. Also, when is the last time you seen a body do a summersault when thrown?

Look Who's Talking Now picture

Other mistake: After Molly crashes the taxi, she is standing outside in the bitter cold. Yet you never see her breath (vapor) when she is speaking or when she is huffing and puffing when confronted by the wolf.

Demolition Man picture

Other mistake: During the scene where Phoenix is questioning the leader of the future society in his office, he says at least one word (hell) that he should have been fined for, and isn't. We see that there is a ticket printer in the room in a later scene, when Savage sets it off during his own confrontation. (01:06:50)

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

Suggested correction: Maybe it's because Phoenix isn't coded, so the swear printer doesn't know who to fine, and for that matter, because of it, it may not even register that it actually is being said by a human (it might be assuming it is a recording) since there is no voiceprint/coding match to attach the fine to.

wb6vpm

False correction as when Simon was using the computer on the street (the "damn I'm possessed" scene) he curses there and it gives him a violation there. So therefore the machine in the leaders office should have given him a fine as well.

lartaker1975

True, but it may also be a technological limitation based on proximity, (when Phoenix is in the booth, it knows that the person who violated the rule is right there, as it can easily "triangulate" his position based on there being multiple microphones in the booth for better background noise rejection, vs in a room where there are potentially multiple people in the same room.

wb6vpm

This is too much of a stretch to justify a mistake in the film. You're making stuff up about non-existent technology that isn't fully explained in the film. The mistake stands, whether it was deliberate to keep the flow of the scene or a slip in dialog by the actor.

Dazed and Confused picture

Other mistake: While all the guys are at the Emporium, right before they go to "bust Carl", O'Bannion's playing pool with some guy on "his table." If you have the closed caption on, as O'Bannion says "OK homo" watch the caption - it says "OK Elmo." (01:02:50)

Other mistake: The wizard Eusaebius is searching a slug powder to make the potion. When he finds it, it's a liquid.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Andrea is being sucked into the fan at the Gotham worlds fair, Batman rides in on his motorcycle. He turns into the fan to rescue her, but his cape is flapping in the opposite direction in which the fans are sucking.
