Cube picture

Other mistake: Toward the beginning, when the characters wonder aloud what the rumbling noise is, someone suggests that it's the ventilation system, to which Rennes responds "No vents." However, in the passages between rooms there are panels with ventilation slits in them (which you can plainly see even as Rennes says the line), and it's pretty impossible that the characteristically level-headed and observant Rennes wouldn't have noticed that.

Other mistake: When Jerry buys "The Catcher in the Rye," the cover is upside down. When facing the front cover, the spine of the book is on the right side, instead of the left.

I Know What You Did Last Summer picture

Other mistake: After Barry (Ryan Phillippe) is put in the hospital, the four of them are talking about the murder and who tried to kill Barry. If you look at the door to Barry's room it is open - didn't anybody hear them talking about murders and a man with a slicker? (00:43:45)

The Game picture

Other mistake: After taking the CRS test, while talking with Feingold, Nicholas corrects his use of "unsatisfied" with "dissatisfied". Feingold responds, "That's right, you're a left-brain word fetishist." But earlier, on the phone with his ex-wife, Nicholas describes her growing family as "nucular" (as opposed to "nuclear" - the "cl" sound in the middle is key). Someone obsessive about word use would never make this mistake, it is classically seen as a sign of low intelligence and/or backward education. (00:11:55 - 00:19:50)

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil picture

Other mistake: When Kevin Spacey is lying on the carpet after having been killed by Jude Law's ghost, there is a very strange shadow visible to the left of the picture which looks as though it is someone standing there with their hands on their sides. There is nothing in the room to suggest that this is a shadow of a bust or a reflection of anything.
