Pocahontas picture

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie when Thomas falls overboard, John Smith ties a rope around his waist (00:02:56) and jumps in after him. Thomas is very far away from the ship (00:03:12). But when the men pull John and Thomas up, John is holding on to the rope with one hand and the end is left dangling (00:03:36). One of the men who pulled them up then coils the rope with a mere two coils (00:03:48), not nearly long enough to have reached Thomas while he was overboard. In the same scene, when we are viewing the men pulling John and Thomas up from above (00:03:38) there is no extra rope at their feet as there should have been for such a long rope.

Dolores Claiborne picture

Continuity mistake: When Selena is leaving on the ferry near the end, and Detective John Mackey pulls up and watches her drifting away, as he gets out of the car the windsheild wipers stop moving.

Strange Days picture

Continuity mistake: This is the car chase scene, where Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett are in a limo being chased by two bad cops in a pickup. Early in the scene, you have the view from inside the pickup when it rams the limo from the rear passenger side, and you can clearly see bullet holes in the glass and rear of the limo (no weapons fired yet). Then a few seconds later in the scene, you can see the rear of the limo with no damage. Moments later, you see one of the cops firing an automatic weapon, and subsequently witnessing the holes being made in the limo.

Demon Knight picture

Revealing mistake: Brayker shoots The Collector through the eye with an arrow just after he's collected the key from Roach. You can see the section of the arrow shaft that sticks out the back of The Collector's head bend as his head hits the floor after he falls over the upstairs railing and crashes through the coffee table.

Problem Child 3: Junior in Love picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Junior cuts the tree with his chainsaw, when he looks up to see how high it is, we can see it has branches. In the next scene when the tree falls on Scoutmaster Flimm, it doesn't have them at all and is cut straight at the top. (00:29:40 - 00:31:00)

Village of the Damned picture

Continuity mistake: When the school janitor jumps from the roof then falls on a parked car, his head is turned to the right and it's obvious that it's a dummy. Two shots later, when Dr. Chafee puts his hand on the neck to take a pulse, the head is turned to the left and the body has changed position.

Darkman II: The Return of Durant picture

Continuity mistake: There is a color change on Darkman's burned skin. In the beginning of the movie, in his lab, his burns are pretty much flesh colored. Later on in the movie, they are a much darker red and brown.

Canadian Bacon picture

Other mistake: Soon after Dan Ackroyd makes John Candy translate all the phrases spray-painted on the van into French, you can see them driving on the road and all the spray-paint has gone. Then later in the film it reappears and stays for the rest of the film.

Johnny Mnemonic picture

Continuity mistake: When J-Bone is coming down from Heaven, the lift he's on stops quite a way off the ground, and moves when he steps off it. Yet when he, Johnny and Jade step onto the lift, it seems to be on the ground as it doesn't move. It couldn't have been lowered, as we would've heard the noise of the motors.
