Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest picture Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest mistake picture

Other mistake: The rope is wound round Jack's body and the pole at his back numerous times. When Shishka-Jack falls, the pole gets jammed between the cliffs, but the pole does not break and the rope does not tear. The rope that goes round the pole numerous times simply disappears, leaving the rope intact around only Jack's body in order for Jack to twirl and unravel as he falls. (00:39:00)

The Lake House picture

Other mistake: Every time somebody climbs to the attic in the "lake house", you see a small, dark, enclosed chamber with some abandoned stuff. However, as soon as you see the "lake house" from the outside, it is a single-level construction entirely made of glass, with no inside staircase or ladder, and three smaller glasshouses on the roof. There is not a single wooden panel to enclose the attic, nor any construction in the house that looks like it could be that attic.

Suggested correction: It's not a "dark, enclosed chamber"; it's a glass surround with part of the windows darkened, but others letting light in. The ladder is shown near the end of the movie (when he's putting the box of letters away) to fold up into a small space, and the "attic" is merely a small space, easily the height of the roof plus one of the glass bits you can see from outside the house.

After looking at many photos of the house, there is no space for the attic.

X-Men 3 picture

Other mistake: When Warren/Angel refuses the cure and spreads his wings, he is looking to the left of the screen at his father. In the reflection of Dr. Kavita Rao's glasses the shot of him is not reversed; he is still looking to the left of the screen when he should in fact be looking to the right. (00:33:00)

Cars picture

Other mistake: Lightning Mcqueen is trying to become the first rookie in Piston Cup history to win the Piston Cup, but Doc Hudson won the Piston Cup in 1951 the first year that Hudson Hornets were produced, which also would have made him a rookie.

Suggested correction: This assumes that the development of this universe follows the same rules as ours.

LorgSkyegon

Not only that, but Doc is supposed to be 20 years old when he becomes a rookie racer. So he wasn't born in 1951. But he is said to have won the Piston Cup as a rookie.

Bishop73

Suggested correction: Darrell actually said, "And land Dinoco?" So that means Lightning is actually the first rookie to win the Piston Cup and land Dinoco.

First, Darrell made that statement before the race. But it wasn't about the first rookie to do both because McQueen says of the Piston Cup "I'll be the first rookie in history ever to win it."

Inside Man picture

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, after the cops storm the bank, all the cops walk into the vault, and as the camera follows them into the vault, you can hear the camera hit the metal vault door, and visibly see the camera shake from hitting it. (01:38:15)

Android Apocalypse picture

Other mistake: When Joey Lawrence gets his hand cut off by the human, he wakes up to find his arm where his hand used to be wrapped in some kind of black cloth. It's obviously his hand that is wrapped up because the wrap sticks out too far to be only wrapping his wrist. Plus it is also bulky which gives away the hand underneath.

Rocky Balboa picture

Other mistake: Jim Lampley reacts to a knockdown by saying "That could be the end of the fight right there," then quickly adds "but no!" when he sees that Rocky is getting up. The problem is, we hear the "but no!" just before we see any sign that Rocky is going to get up.

Superman Returns picture

Other mistake: The text of the German news is wrong. It is titled "Fensterputzer halten an ihrem Lebemfest" (Window cleaners hold on for their lives). It should be "Leben fest". Also "Newsdirek" is wrong, it should be "Newsdirekt" or better "News direkt."

Bring It On: All or Nothing picture

Other mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Brit's parents announce that her father has lost his job, but only a few seconds later he says that the company is relocating to Crenshaw Heights. If he has lost his job, there would be no reason to follow the company to Crenshaw Heights.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift picture

Other mistake: Throughout the movie we see the mustang rolling chassis in the garage. This is a rolling chassis of a 1967 Shelby mustang gt 500/350. The main ways to realize this are that the car has the cut outs in the front for the 2 fog lights that the Shelby had and that the back end has a spoiler which is built into the body. However the car they do all the driving with is a base model 1967 mustang fastback. While a new grille would've covered up the fog-light cutout, the regular fastbacks didn't have the built into the body spoiler like the Shelby's did. Removing the built in spoiler and making it as smooth as it was would've taken way too much time and supplies. It also wouldn't have served any benefit. You could argue they were trying to eliminate down-force on the back but the spoiler was only about 2 inches, it wouldn't have helped. The directors did this to avoid wrecking the much more rare Shelby mustang.

Night at the Museum picture

Other mistake: When Larry takes Jed back to his miniature city, in the shot where the T-Rex almost hits Larry, watch Teddy's' horse. His head moves, following Larry and the cameraman. This cannot happen as the horse and Teddy had been already transformed into statues. (00:42:00 - 00:43:00)

Suggested correction: The horse's head moves way before the point where Teddy turns back into a statue in a very close view.

16 Blocks picture 16 Blocks mistake picture

Other mistake: When Bruce and Mos Def are running through the alley near the beginning, they run past a Chinese man who slams a dumpster lid shut. Once Bruce pulls out his gun to look back, that same man starts running because he gets scared. In the next shot, he continues running, but soon stops as if he thinks filming is over. This is visible right before the camera pans to the right.
