Cybermutt picture

Continuity mistake: Nino gets trussed up in silver duct tape. The boy gets bundled over the shoulders of one of the bad guys, and you can see that there is only a small amount of tape around his legs. They go straight inside the meat packing factory and suddenly in the next shot, there is a huge amount of tape around the boy's legs.

Vlad picture

Factual error: How can a gun being *thrown at* a car window (as Adrian did with the thug's gun in the car chase sequence) possibly shatter the glass? No shots fired, no full body weight being thrown - just the gun.

Kal Ho Naa Ho picture

Continuity mistake: The first time at the station, Sweetu looks back at the camera representing Aman with a confused look on her face, mouth open a little bit, teeth clenched. During the Heartbeat instrumental song when they show a flashback of the same moment with Aman in the shot, Sweetu looks at him with a big smile on her face. You can see this because when her face turns her mouth is visibly wide open and her lips are curled upward. (00:10:35 - 00:20:40)

The Cooler picture

Continuity mistake: When Natalie tells Bernie about her son, the lock of hair hanging down in front of her right eye disappears and reappears randomly throughout the scene. It's present in only about half of the frontal shots, and no shots from any other angle. (00:37:20)

Factual error: All UK driving test instructors must wear a yellow reflective waistcoat or jacket while instructing someone during their driving test. This was still true in 2002 when the film was shot.

A Mighty Wind pictureA Mighty Wind mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As the New Main Street Singers are performing their second song at the show, you can see Parker Posey pretend to use her guitar as a shotgun.

Matchstick Men picture

Continuity mistake: As Nicolas Cage is smoking a cigarette in his car when his daughter comes into view for the 1st time. The camera angle flips between him, him with her in the background, to his key, back to him, and back to him with her in the background. Each time the angle changes so does the length of his cigarette. The time span is only a matter of 10-15 secs as she walks up and then starts to walk away, but his cigarette ends up being longer than when she walked up. (00:25:25)

Swimming Pool picture

Continuity mistake: Julie doesn't come home one night; the next day as she is getting out of the pool we see that she has been "roughed up" and has a black eye. Next to her eye there is a circular bruise/mark. That evening, as Julie and Sarah are at dinner the bruise is now under Julie's eye and is a different shape (longer and more oval in shape). (00:52:50 - 00:58:00)

Gigli picture

Plot hole: When Bryan is shuffled in at "The Baywatch" as one of the dancing extras, wouldn't the director of the film notice that one of his beach dancers (Bryan) is actually dressed for cold weather rather than a day at the beach? He's wearing sweats and a hooded sweatshirt, and he stands out like a sore thumb with all those girls in bikinis around him.

More Gigli mistakes
Brother Bear picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning and end of the film, there is a narration who the subtitles label as Sitka, but at the very beginning, we see that the narrator is actually Denahi.
