Mistakes in cinema and rental titlesMore Babylon mistakes
Other mistake: In the hot dog finger universe, everyone uses their feet for dexterous things, like playing the piano...but the pianos themselves are still designed exactly like our universe, at waist height where it's convenient for playing with hands, but very uncomfortable to play with your feet.
Factual error: The deer in the forest somehow does not hear the giant dinosaur approaching, so doesn't run away. (01:21:10)
Continuity mistake: In a pivotal scene in the middle of the film, Josh and his stepmother Constance are having a conversation about how Lyle has helped Josh adapt to life in New York City. In the background, the same woman can be seen walking past them multiple times. She is wearing an open gray sweater with an orange shirt.
Other mistake: The movie begins with Otto buying 5 feet of rope. It turns out that the intended use was for him to hang himself. No way the hangman's noose we see was made from 5 feet of rope.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, Kevin wants to meet "the L girl" at their stop at 7pm. While Kevin is waiting, the camera goes to the clock. First it says 7pm. After waiting a few minutes, it says 7:10pm. Then when Kevin finally gets to Abby, the clock in the background only says 6:55pm.
Factual error: The radar guided SAMs are consistently evaded/triggered by the pilots' flares, which in reality only work against heat seeking missiles. Radar guided missiles would be defended against using chaff, basically clouds of aluminium foil strips. It was mentioned in some interviews they didn't want use chaff as it wouldn't really be visible for the audience - hence why they only deploy flares.
Factual error: The opening states the location as Bristol, England. Santa is drinking in a pub on Shirely Street (which does not exist, either the pub or the street), then shortly after is shown leaving from the rooftop, on his sleigh, with multiple high rise buildings in the background. Bristol does not have high rise buildings in the main city centre, only a few blocks of flats, which all have flat roof tops, not like those depicted.
Factual error: One of the warriors tells a trainee they move like a sloth, more than once. Sloths are only found in the "new world", not native to Africa.
