Sweeney Todd picture

Other mistake: Based on the location of the barber's chair with the picture window in Todd's barber shop and the layout of the exterior of the building, there is no possible way that the chute behind the chair would be able to dump the bodies directly into the basement without going through the center of Ms. Lovett's shop.

Charlie Wilson's War picture

Other mistake: In Wilson's Congressional office, the Texas flag on his left is mounted upside down. The white panel belongs on the top of the flag, not the bottom.

Cleaner picture

Other mistake: Eddie comes to see Tom at the bathroom clean-up job and convinces Tom to confide in him. Eddie tells Tom that he'll, "See what Wallace knows". There is no character named "Wallace" - he was supposed to say "Vargas", the investigator on the case. The subtitles correctly reference Vargas.

Live Free or Die Hard picture

Other mistake: Where does the fire in the gas pipes come from? Even though a lot of gas - and thereby pressure - is directed towards the power station, why do they blow up under ground far away from the power station?

Captivity picture

Other mistake: When Jennifer and Gary are scratching the messages to each other on the painted glass, the glass is painted black on both sides so they wouldn't be able to see each others scratchings as the paint on their side would cover the marks the other was making.

The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning picture

No Country For Old Men picture

Other mistake: The case of money is in the complete opposite physical orientation when Moss retrieves it from the air duct in room 38. When Llewelyn Moss hides the money in the air duct from room 138, he pushes it to the end of the ductwork with the closet rod and then pushes it to the left with the top of the case and handle going in first and the bottom slightly sticking out. So the top of the case (with the handle) appears to be pointing left in looking at it from 138. When he pulls off the grill in room 38 the next day we can see the top and handle protruding on the right side of the air duct (handle facing left, as he peers into the ductwork). Since we know from the motel room map, that room 38 is directly behind 138, with common rear wall, the top of the case and handle should be facing the right, (from a visual perspective), as you look into the ductwork from room 38 - and it is not.

St. Trinian's picture

Other mistake: After Kelly and the twins climb out of the sewer tunnel and hear footsteps, the twins sit atop the steel grating pretending to cry while the rest hide below. All the walls and paintings behind the twins are the very same ones behind Kelly, Taylor and Andrea later, when they've finally reached their target painting, in a different area of the gallery. We can even see the square of wood planks covering the area of the steel grating seen earlier. (01:13:35 - 01:24:00)

Halloween picture

Other mistake: In the original ending, after Laurie is pulled out of the cop car, Loomis is able to reason with Michael to let her go. After he does, he is shot to death by the police. This was obviously changed, but when Loomis is reasoning with him in the final cut, you can still see the police standing behind him. (01:46:00)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The police came anyways. He is a wanted killer, after all.

During the timestamp above, an officer standing behind Loomis with their gun ready while he's talking to Michael, but besides these shots, the officer is nowhere to be found. In the alternate ending, this confrontation is completely different as cops are shown actually pulling up behind Loomis. You are able to see that shots from the alt ending are used in the final movie, thus making the mistake valid.

Transformers picture Transformers mistake picture

Other mistake: During the chase scene on the highway, when Sam says, "It's the same cop," they pan to a wide shot to show the whole freeway with the cars on it. All of the vehicles are on the wrong side of the freeway. When looking out of the back of his car, you can see the fronts of all of the cars coming towards the camera, and you can see the text on the signs facing the camera as well. You can also see crowds on the flyover, watching the filming. (01:50:05)

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End picture

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, an order is given to fire a cannon shot at the masts of the Pearl and the Dutchman as they have become entangled. We then see a mast being destroyed by the shot but when the ships separate, not one of them has a broken mast.

Hitman picture

Other mistake: The FSB uniformed guards in tactical gear have stencils on the back that are lettered incorrectly. The Cyrillic F and B are correct, but the Cyrillic S looks like a C not a backwards C as shown in the movie. (01:09:45)
