Mistakes in cinema and rental titles
Character mistake: The Rufus hologram states that he first brought the phone booth to the Chosen Ones (Bill and Ted) in 1989, referencing events of the original film. While that was the year the first movie came out, it took place in 1988 (indicated by the opening title card and dialogue throughout the movie).Vader47000
Continuity mistake: During the punch-monkey fight, Phil Betterman lies on the floor, exhausted, with his pendant resting on the floor, next to his ribcage. In the next shot it lies by his chest. Though he could have moved it between shots, the movie implies he is so tired he is lying motionless on the floor all the time.Sacha
Visible crew/equipment: While Barnum and Phillip sing "The Other Side" Phillip uses two stools to get up and down from the bar top. When he steps down from the bar top, in this wideshot (also the first shot of them in the pub and other shots) the two upright stools Phillip used are secured with additional support, note the floor area underneath the stools' legs have the same pattern as the rest of the floor, though we can see the outline where the pattern's lines don't match up. Additionally, we also see three actors' marks (in the shape of an "L") on the floor in front of the bar, which will be where Barnum and Phillip will stand when they agree on the ten percent.

Factual error: The movie is set in the 1960s, but the yellow Pyrex set (called Shenandoah) on the upper shelves in the kitchen wasn't manufactured until the 1980s.
Plot hole: Scar tells the pack he didn't make it to the gorge in time to help Mufasa. However Zazu was with them at at the gorge. He could have easily told Serabi or any of the other lions on the numerous times he spoke with them, exposing Scar.Ssiscool
Plot hole: There is no reason at all why, being targeted by a few arrows by unseen enemies - a fire suppressed already by the salvo of their own archers - the Rourans would turn around their heavy siege equipment, away from the bulk of the enemy forces, and fire it, hurling a single heavy stone to the middle of nowhere when they have the whole rest of the army who could storm the rock the supposed enemy commandos hide behind, or the archers who could keep shooting - again, they proved to be completely successful. It also makes no sense that the all-powerful witch who made the warriors flee managed to do any of this, 'sneaking' by horse in the middle of the steppe.Sammo
Revealing mistake: When Rizzo falls down the chimney and lands on the goose at Bob Cratchit's house, he burns his feet. When he is next to Gonzo, his feet are smoking. If you look closely, you can see the holes in the puppet's feet where the smoke comes out.
Continuity mistake: When Picard walks out of the archive building he's shocked to see Dahj, who is wearing boots with a chunky heel (also seen when she followed Laris to a bedroom for "a good night's sleep"). After their talk Dahj and Picard head to the roof, and while Dahj fights the Romulan assassins she is wearing flat soled boots, but in at least one shot as she kicks an assassin her chunky heeled boots reappear.

Continuity mistake: The protagonist, Neil and Kat are in the back of the yellow ambulance in the parking garage. Neil checks on Kat, after that he removes plastic gloves from his hands and throws them into the trash right next to him, 2 cuts later he again crumples a pair of plastic gloves. (01:46:15)
Other mistake: Fireworks use heated metals to produce the various colors seen when they explode - Iron, Nickel, Cryolite, magnesium and copper filings. Flying a jet engine through exploding fireworks would cause serious damage to the engine.
Continuity mistake: When Chris talks to the cop and then the cop gets shot with an arrow, Chris runs into the truck and the man shoots another arrow. So altogether he shoots two times. The first one is in the cop's eye, so how come when he shoots the second through the truck window, there are now two arrows there, not one. He only fired two arrows and we see three.
