Continuity mistake: During the sex scene between Milo Ventimiglia and Lauren Lee Smith, in which the fat guy was found dead, three consecutive shots showed that Milo Ventimiglia has his shirt on on the first, then the shirt disappeared on the next, only to reappear on Milo Ventimiglia's body again in the third shot.

RocknRolla picture

Continuity mistake: The car they pour petrol/gasoline over in the closeup shot is a 2007 Chrysler 300C Hemi with the big square-shaped grille. In the long shot where the car blows up, it is not the same car; the grille has changed shape and is more akin to an old Mercedes.

Suggested correction: The grille hasn't changed shape, it looks different because of the explosion damage.

The Memory Keeper's Daughter picture

My Best Friend's Girl picture

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the movie when Alexis is getting ready for her first date with Tank, her roommate is holding a cheetah print shirt. The shot changes and suddenly Alexis is wearing it, even though she has not had time to put it on. She is also holding a drink in her hand, but she never puts it down. (Although this is explained on the DVD's Deleted Scenes, it is still a mistake.)

The Gamers: Dorkness Rising picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Brother Silence/Cass leaves the house after finishing the campaign at the end of the movie, he opens the front door to leave and there is a glass door/screen there outside the house.

The Children picture

Continuity mistake: At the end, Casey and Elaine flee the house in the Volvo and find Chloe's crashed SUV. As Casey goes to investigate the SUV on foot, Miranda suddenly comes sprinting out of the woods, intending to kill Casey. To save Casey, Elaine rams Miranda with the Volvo, slamming her into the rear of the SUV. A camera shot from inside the SUV looking out shows that Miranda impacted right in the center of the SUV's rear hatch. In the same shot, we see Miranda's lifeless body slowly slide straight down the hatch, meaning her body should have collapsed directly between the Volvo and the SUV. When the camera cuts to an exterior view, we see Miranda's lifeless body stretched out in the snow (parallel to both vehicles) a couple of feet away from the Volvo's front right fender; so her body is now about 6 feet away from where it should be.

Stone of Destiny picture

Revealing mistake: The raid took place at Xmas in 1951. In homage to this fact, the characters wear big coats and one of them even rubs his hands together and goes "Brrr." Yet the movie was filmed in the height of summer. Trees in the background of scenes in London are full of leaves, we never see any mist in exhaled breath and the lighting levels and shadows indicate a high, bright sun.

Far Cry picture

Audio problem: At the start of the movie, the soldiers switch on the lights on the vehicles. Each light has a sound effect to a massive spot light activating, when in reality they are just headlights and wouldn't make any kind of sound.

Witless Protection picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Larry The Cable Guy is eating a long dog while talking to Madeleine, he keeps biting down on the bun, yet the eaten part reappears. This happens twice during this scene.

Killshot picture

Plot hole: Blackbird and Ritchie fake their deaths in order to lure Wayne and Carmen out of hiding. What was the point of pursuing Wayne and Carmen? The only reason they wanted the couple dead was to prevent them from testifying. The problem is .if Blackbird and Ritchie were "dead", the case would be CLOSED. Carmen and Wayne wouldn't be testifying anyway. So why go to the trouble of killing them? It makes no sense.

SEAL Team VI picture

Factual error: When the captain is arguing with the Armed Services Committee chairman, Homeland Security is mentioned. However this movie takes place prior to Desert Shield, and the Department of Homeland Security wasn't created until over a decade later.

Audio problem: The day after Operation Mardonius, when the first set of bombs explodes you first see the explosion and then hear it after a second, then as the last bombs explode you both see and hear the sound at the same time.

The Clique picture

Continuity mistake: There's a mistake in the pool scene where Dylan, Alicia, and Kristen are waiting for Massie. Claire comes in, and her swimsuit changes pattern from daisy to checkered as the camera changes from close to her face to showing her full body.
