Troy picture

Revealing mistake: When the spear handle is protruding from Hector's shoulder, the area of the armor around the circular wound is clearly visible and it is in perfect condition. There is no tear in the armor whatsoever, around the wood, which would have been necessary to allow the wide spear tip to penetrate the armor and actually enter Hector's body as it did. (02:01:20)

Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London picture

Revealing mistake: When the musicians stop playing and the world leaders start getting up from the table, it goes to a shot spanning the entire table, but also showing the musician's stage. This is where you see the mistake, as you see Berkhamp suddenly at the front of the stage wearing his headband and dancing, when it cuts away from that shot, it shows Berkhamp is still sitting behind his instrument with his headband still off. Then we find that out of place shot was recycled from when Berkhamp actually was onstage and dancing as we see the exact same shot again less than a minute later, this time the shot is where it's supposed to be however this is still a mistake and quite an odd one. (01:26:25)
