The Prince of Egypt picture

Factual error: During the plague when the fire and rocks are falling from the sky, they fall behind a statue of Rameses and are seen through its hollow eye holes. It makes for a great image, but that would mean that the statue's eyes were punched out like a mask, even though before they were just carved into the stone.

A Bug's Life picture

Continuity mistake: As Flik is just leaving the island to go find the "tough bugs", he's followed by two young male ants. The two young ants look quite different, one being blue and the other more purple. The blue one says "My dad gives you one hour before you come back crying" and the purple one says something to the effect of "My dad says you're gonna die". But after Flik has hit himself on the rock whilst trying to cross the valley, the purple ant says to the blue ant, "Your dad's right, he's gonna die". Wrong ant.

Tarzan and the Lost City picture

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Tarzan goes under the stone door, he finds the torches dropped by the bad guys. The flame from one of the torches is reflected in the camera lens, and was caught on tape. It looks like a single, unattached flame is hovering on the stone wall nearby. This is made even better when Tarzan picks up the torch and then drops it, the reflection follows his movements precisely.

Antz picture

Other mistake: Wouldn't flying out of the water with the unconscious Z in his arms be kind of tricky for Cutter, as his wings would be soaked?

3 Ninjas: High Noon At Mega Mountain picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the boys are fighting in front of the "Avalanche" ride which Medusa has sped up, Amanda hits the emergency stop button and accidently stops the ride upside down. In the very next shot it shows one of the boys fighting in front of the ride, and the ride is now moving.

Krippendorf's Tribe picture

Other mistake: There's a scene where James films his and Veronica's amorous activities for use as Shelmikedmu mating ritual videos. While she is dancing, we see him slip behind a curtain to turn on the camera. Later on, we see the footage being played on a store's display TV's. Much of the footage shown is of her dancing BEFORE he turned on the hidden camera. And because of the angle of the shot, you can see that it wasn't taken by a different camera.
