Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle

Corrected entry: When Madison falls through the stage floor she breaks a pipe and her pistol ignites a flame. I'm guessing this must have been a natural gas pipe, which if broken leaves no regulation of the natural gas flow, therefore the explosion would have taken out the entire stage not just sent a little flame coming up through the hole in the stage. (01:35:25)


Correction: The gas line would not explode because natural gas only runs at a pressure of 14 PSI, but that pressure would still be enough to keep gas constantly flowing out of the pipe into the fire. Therefore, it would act more like a flamethrower, and less like a bomb, because the gas wouldn't be able to suck back into the pipe unless the pressure were to drop.

Corrected entry: Considering how important the H.A.L.O. rings are, why do the O'Grady's keep them in a poorly locked cabinet in the hull of a boat thrown into a pile of a bunch of other random rings?


Correction: Maybe they're not that smart, or they hadn't had time to secure them properly, in any case, a character mistake.

It's a trap so he can exact Revenge on Dylan.

Corrected entry: When the Angels find the filing cabinet of rings, and take the tray out, Natalie takes ONE bottle of champagne and pours it in the rings. When they cut the shot and show a different angle, she is still pouring the bottle with the same hand position, meaning that it was only one bottle they used. One bottle of champagne could not have filled ALL that space, especially since when Natalie corked it off, a bit spilled on the ground. (00:51:25)

Correction: The drawer holding the rings is very small. One bottle of champagne with a bit spilled out could have easily filled that space.


Corrected entry: Slightly odd one - at the start when the girls are being introduced, we see Lucy Liu doing some gymnastics. All the judges hold up a "10" card each, but look at the one second from the left - the 10 disappears from it after a few frames, for no good reason that I can work out.

Jon Sandys

Correction: The card is reflecting a light, so the reflective 10 card gleams pure white. The ten does not just "dissapear."

Corrected entry: When Dylan and Alex go to help Natalie, they have no goggles on, but when we see them travelling on the bikes, they do. (00:32:40)


Correction: These girls are spies. They are supposed to have hidden things in their clothes, shoes, etc.

Corrected entry: In Cameron Diaz's big fight with Demi at the end of the movie in the theatre, when Demi gets behind Cameron with her gun, there is a shot of Cameron's face with Demi behind her holding the gun to her head. It is her standard HUGE gold gun that she's been using throughout the movie. Then, when Demi gets Cameron in a headlock and puts the gun under her chin, it's a TOTALLY different gun; it's smaller and has engraved patterns on the barrel. It's really obvious. (01:34:00)

Correction: It is supposed to be a different gun. In the scene on top of the roof, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore take Demi's guns and drop them on the floor. So Demi wouldn't be using the same gun in the theatre scene, she had another one with her.

Corrected entry: Drew's ex-boyfriend Seamus doesn't count 2 days in leap years when converting 8 years to days. (00:52:05)

Correction: Yeah, but you can argue it was a mistake the character made, not the filmmakers. Plus, he may not have been in for exactly 8 years, he may have been in an extra few days.

Corrected entry: When the Angels enter the Caulfield house the police tape is still across the door. When they leave it's gone. (00:20:55)


Correction: They're in the house long enough for the police tape to have been removed.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the angels are helping Natalie move in to her new home, you can tell that the TV set that Alex is holding is a prop due to it not having a power cord.

Correction: Some TV sets have a compartment in the back that the cord folds into so it doesn't get caught on stuff while it's moving. Others have detachable cords.


Corrected entry: When Alex is winning the gymnastics championship, look at the score on the second closest judge to the screen. The number 10 disppears suddenly. (00:09:35)

Correction: The number doesn't disappear, the light is reflecting off of the card causing the camera to catch white.

Corrected entry: In the last scene where they change outfits and go to the movie premiere, there are no cuts visible, whereas the previous scene the girls were covered in them. (01:35:40)

Correction: If they had time to get ready, presumably they had time to apply the makeup that hides imperfections.

Corrected entry: When the girls are on the ground after being shot off the roof by Madison Natalie's eyes are wide open as if she were dead. Actually she was unconscious so her eyes should be closed.Or, at the very least, blink which is involuntary.

Maria Santos

Correction: People can sleep with their eyes open. People can go unconscious with eyes open.

Corrected entry: When Madison Lee visits the agency and talks to Charlie over the phone, where was Bosley? Charlie only ever calls the agency when he knows someone (i.e. Bosley) is there to answer his call. It is definitely an incoming call as the phone rings and rings until Madison presses the answer button.

Correction: How does he know someone's there if he doesn't call first? It's just that we usually never see any calls where no one answers because it would be pointless to watch an empty room with a ringing phone.

Corrected entry: When Dylan is in the bar in Mexico, she orders a coffee, meets Kelly Garrett, and leaves without paying for it.

Correction: Technically, she never drinks it or even adds sugar or creamer to it, so leaving without paying is the same as sending it back to the kitchen.


Corrected entry: During the scene where Alex knocks out Jason by accident (while they are helping Nat to move in with Pete); before she knocks him out she is holding a box with stuff in it, but after she helps him up again, she picks up the TV and carries it over to the house.

Correction: She puts the first box down after she realizes she just attacked Jason, then picks up the TV. She does this believing that Jason will offer to take it from her (thus getting him to do some heavy lifting for her) but it doesn't work until she foists the TV on him after she gets paged.


Corrected entry: When the girls fight the mob, they start shooting at the cage. If you look carefully, you can see a stagehand near a 44-gallon drum.

Correction: That's not a crew member, it's an extra - a temporarily inactive member of the O'Grady mob.


Corrected entry: When Ray Carter has the rings and is driving down the highway, the headbar behind him changes from red to black and so forth. They obviously must have had 2 cars.

Correction: The seat, including the headrest, is red. The arched bar behind the seat, a stylish addition to a sports car, is black. These colors are consistent throughout the scene.


Corrected entry: When Drew throws her lighter at the gas hose to make it a flamethrower, how come the gas lights when Drew isn't touching the lighter? It must be manually ignited. (00:57:10)

Correction: Her lucky lighter is the type that stays lit. You don't have to hold a thumb switch to light it. It's extinguished by closing the lid. She lights and throws it.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: In the scene where the angels are checking out the surfer guy's wallet they are under his car. But when he drives away they are not there, and Cameron Diaz's surf board is sideways, showing that there is no one behind it. In the next shot, it's sideways and when she moves it the other two angels are behind it. There is no way for them to have hidden behind the sideways board. (00:28:50)

Correction: This is deliberate. It's to show how fantastic and unreal the Angels are. In the director's commentary, McG says: 'And the girls are stuck, they're going to get run over, holy mackeral they're getting run over. And then, uh oh, they're not there, then with a little, you know, angel sauce, Cameron's going to whip that board over and whoosh, they're there.'

Corrected entry: When the big letter "E" falls between the buildings, the "prongs" on the letter "E" are facing towards the ground. However, when it crushes the Creepy Thin Man and the other guy, the "prongs" are facing horizontally.

Correction: Because the "back" of the E is heaviest, it would rotate toward the ground during the fall. That is why the "prongs" have moved position during the fall and had the fall been longer, the prongs would be facing up when it landed.

Factual error: Helicopter rotor blades do not unfold by themselves and there is no way to unfold them from inside the helicopter. A trained mechanic with the right tools and equipment (including the proper ladder for the job) will take a minimum of twenty minutes to rig a four bladed rotor, and that's if (s)he's in a hurry. An airborne (i.e. falling) helicopter? Forget it. (00:07:40)
