Continuity mistake: While Mikaela and Sam are on the phone with each other (after the failed webchat date the night before), when Wheelie starts reaching up for the safe's combination lock in the first shot, there are no mouse traps on the floor near the short stool to his left, nor are there any cigar boxes. However, in the next shot two mouse traps (a snap trap with cheese bait and a glue trap) and two cigar boxes have all suddenly appeared. Wheelie proceeds to step on the two traps and then stands on the two boxes to reach the combination lock. (00:47:05)

The Descent: Part 2 picture

Continuity mistake: When Vaines takes out his gun whilst using the camcorder's night vision mode, the condition of his thumbnail in the close-up shot of him taking out his gun looks completely different to how it is in the close-up shots of him holding the camcorder. In the gun shot it looks dirty and unkempt but looks clean and pristine in the camcorder shots.

Terminator Salvation picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Blair escapes with Marcus and Barnes launches an explosive into the tunnel, Marcus hops onto Blair to save her from the scorching flames. After the fire, Marcus' coat would have been burnt to a crisp, his hair singed off and the skin on his back fried. More evidence pointing to this was that his coat was merely one previously worn by a Resistance fighter, not special in any way, and he has regular skin and hair. (01:06:50)

Star Trek picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film when Kirk is being awarded his medal, behind the Federation Counsel you can see 3 flags in the background- the center flag is the California state flag. After Kirk shakes Pike's hand, and the camera pans up and back, the California flag is hanging significantly different so that it is no longer recognizable, seeming almost blank white. As the ceremony is indoors and all attending are standing motionless, this flag should not have moved. (01:56:25)

G-Force picture

Continuity mistake: Watch carefully during the scene where Hurley gets launched by the sprinkler. When Darwin says, "Come on, soggy," as he is walking away, the camera pans back to show Hurley still lying on the concrete, we see little guinea pig footprints in water on the sidewalk. They weren't made by Hurley because he hadn't moved and Darwin had dodged the water and was completely dry. Nor did he walk in the water either.
