War of the Worlds picture

Other mistake: When Ray pulls up to Mary Ann's home, the front exterior layout and dimensions of the house are evident, from its near center front door to the two car garage, in front of Ray's van. The side exterior wall contains two large garage doors, which are about 35-40 ft from the location of the front door, with no small basement windows at ground level; inside, beside the front door, the stairs that lead to the basement run parallel just under the stairs in the foyer. In the basement, the small windows on the far end of the furnace room they run into are only about 20 ft from the basement stairs. Not only are the small windows non-existent in the exterior shot, but it's entirely impossible for two small windows to be where they are, considering the exterior footage of the house. (00:34:30 - 00:40:20)

King Kong picture

Other mistake: When Ann Darrow is awaiting sacrifice to Kong she is hanging from tight thick ropes around her wrists. However, when Kong shows up he just grabs her and tears her from the plinth. Either the ropes should still be around her arms having been torn from their mounts, or her arms should have been ripped off.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith picture

Other mistake: To escape from the elevator, Anakin cuts a hole in the ceiling. Later, when they rescue the Chancellor, they almost get crushed by another elevator (it is another one. Each elevator has a number. Obi Wan said the number of this elevator before and it was different than the one that had the hole). However, when a shot of this elevator is shown, it has the same hole that the other elevator has (better seen in slow motion).

Rumor Has It picture

Other mistake: When Sarah is at her Aunt Mitzi's house looking at the yearbook picture of Beau Burroughs, Beau's name appears on the top of the list, yet his picture is farthest to the right in a row of pictures. Yearbooks list names with the top name being on the left, and the last name on the right.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory picture

Other mistake: In the beginning of the song about Augustus Gloop, computer generated Oompa Loompas can be seen running through the Chocolate Room, preparing to sing their song. In the DVD release, some Oompa Loompas can be seen running to places that no real person could possibly stand on. This mistake was later corrected in the Blu-Ray release.

Herbie: Fully Loaded picture

Other mistake: When the NASCAR pit crew starts working on Herbie at the barn, they initially pull a bunch of parts and tools from their racetrack trailer. One man is carrying a distinctive VW-only wheel rim, which would definitely not fit their regular NASCAR car. The decision to race Herbie had just been made, so they would not have been carrying VW spare parts yet. Nor could they have pulled one of Herbie's wheels yet since they were still carrying the jack to the barn.

Flightplan picture

Other mistake: When either Kyle or Carson run down the staircase the rails move significantly. On a real plane this would not have passed the pre-flight safety checks and the plane would have been grounded. Nothing in the film suggests the rails would have loosened.

Other mistake: In the opening scenes, when the gang is introduced, one of the members kicks three men and knocks them out, but you can see he misses all of them by at least 6 inches.

Cinderella Man picture

Other mistake: During the Baer and Braddock fight, when the camera angle is from far away, you can see that Braddock is not actually connecting with his punches on Baer. Yet Baer still reacts like he's been hit. This also true with Baer hitting Braddock when the camera is showing the fight from far away in the stands.

Madagascar picture

Other mistake: In the scene on the boat where the mute monkey is reading the notice on the penguin's box, and signing to the other, the monkey who can speak (but not read) is translating faster than the mute monkey is signing. For instance, he states the notice says "Kenya" before the mute monkey fingerspells "Kenya".

Are We There Yet? picture

Other mistake: When the trucker is running Ice Cube against the barrier, sparks fly out. In the next scene, there are no scratches on the side of the Navigator.

The Interpreter picture

Other mistake: The photo of Silvia and her brother, walking on the road with guns in Africa, looks like a composite and is obviously a fake made up for the movie. The images of those two look flatter and have slightly different contrast compared to people in the rest of the photo; separate photos of them have been cut and pasted onto the road photo.

Kingdom of Heaven picture

Other mistake: When Balian talks to God on the hill where Jesus died, after he says his line, the next shot is him sitting down overlooking the empty valley below. A white light travels from right to left going 45-50 mph. Nothing back then could go that fast, and even if anything could, a torch is yellow and red, and even if it could be white, no rider can ride that fast with a white-light torch and keep it from going out - leaving us to assume it's a car.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children picture

Other mistake: Cloud finds Tifa lying on the flower-patch in the church, after the fight with Loz. When we first see her she has her leather gloves on, then the next shot her hands are bare, and again in the next shot she has her gloves again.

The Great Raid picture

Other mistake: The exact same background shot of a Ventura bomber followed by two single-engine planes flying left to right is used three times during the film, twice at the beginning as they are planning the mission on the beach and then once at the end when the raid is over.

Chicken Little picture

Other mistake: When the pennant game is being played, Chicken Little's team is down by two runs with a score of 14-13, but if you add the score up off of the board before Little's two run hit, it equals 15.

Cry_Wolf picture

Other mistake: When Owen first meets Dodger, and asks if its that obvious he's a transfer, she tells him "It's a small school, word travels fast." During a flashback to this scene at the end of the movie she says "word spreads fast," instead.
