Die Another Day (2002)

Die Another Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The first time we see the inside of the transport plane, the helicopter is very close to the yellow car, with its tail sticking most of the way over it. When Bond and Jinx come to escape and start up the conveyer belt, the yellow car's nowhere near the tail. Nothing to do with the conveyer itself - it's just two standard belts moving backwards. The car can't move any faster than the chopper.

Continuity mistake: Very near the start, when Frodo and Sam are talking, keep an eye on Sam's backpack. The blanket rolled up at the top of it moves up and down his back, without him adjusting it.

Continuity mistake: When Hans first walks into the room with the fishtank, the plastic on the floor flaps up behind him as he walks, ending up folded up on itself without much space between the man and the end of the plastic. When he gets shot and falls back onto it, it's perfectly flat and he's a lot further forward.

Pleasantville (1998)

Question: I'm sure I'm missing something, but the ending didn't quite gel with me. I didn't get the significance of George Parker becoming Bill Johnson off-screen. Was it that given the fictional nature of the world/show, they were both different sides of the same person, or what?

Chosen answer: I agree. I think there are a couple ways you could interpret this, but I took it to mean that Bill Johnson essentially became the new man in Betty Parker's life and that the show would continue reflecting this change.

Bridget Jones's Diary mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end when Mark Darcy finds her diary, you clearly see the number 29 as he pulls it from under the magazines, then when you see the diary it's open on pages 10 and 11.

Continuity mistake: When Jeremy London and Jason Lee come back from the Dirt Mall, they park with a green saloon to their right. Then when they get out of the car, the saloon has been replaced by a black truck.

The Whole Nine Yards mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Matthew Perry is talking to Bruce Willis after their drive and he's sitting on the ledge, when he says "no, I live here with my wife" his hands are either side of him on the ledge or together in his lap, depending on the angle.

Jurassic Park (1993)

Jurassic Park mistake picture

Revealing mistake: In the scenes where there's a video link to the docks shown on computer, there's a bar moving along the bottom of the screen, showing us that it's actually a video that's just playing on the computer.

Trivia: Just a quick note - obvious to many, but a lot of people I know missed him. Note the techie who gets hit by a car after being chased for a while - he's Jason Lee, of Mallrats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma fame. I know, I know, it's obvious, but a few people I know didn't notice until I mentioned it.

Scream 3 (2000)

Trivia: Just to alert those not in the know - if you were in the audience and were entirely confused when two characters dressed in black appeared, the tall skinny one says something to Gale, and half the people around you laughed, you clearly haven't watched enough good films. Those characters are Jay and Silent Bob from Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma - four fantastic films from Kevin Smith, who plays Silent Bob. Go and see them. Now.

Trivia: Not strictly a mistake, but have you ever seen anything like the product placement when Rene Russo storms into an office and downs a can of Pepsi One (with the label cunning facing the camera)? She does all but turn to camera, hold it up, and say "aaah - there's nothing like an ice-cold can of Pepsi". I actually laughed when I saw it.

Lethal Weapon 3 (1992)

Lethal Weapon 3 mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: As the motorbike falls from the highway, just after it explodes there's a very short wide shot of the site with Danny Glover standing by his car and a couple of guys in hard hats standing around (or running for their life). If you look right behind Danny Glover you can see two people, one in a white hat, one in a red, and one of them is holding a camera - they start moving backwards just before the end of the shot. We then see the bike blowing up, then a close up shot of Danny Glover, from the camera we've just seen.

Jurassic Park (1993)

Jurassic Park mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Nedry is trying to escape, and his jeep gets stuck on the mud bank, the camera shows the road below him, and there's an arrow pointing straight ahead. A bit later, the camera shows it again, and the arrow's now pointing left.

Trivia: About the book really, but it sort of relates - in the book of Lost World, Malcolm is a main character (like in the film), despite the fact that he dies at the end of Jurassic Park, the book. It's semi-explained away at the beginning when he's giving a speech and says something like "rumours of my death are greatly exaggerated", but even so - at a guess Jeff Goldblum had already signed up for a sequel...

The Lost World: Jurassic Park mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When they're in the shack, and the raptors are making the walls shake, the lights wire guard falls off the wall and lands in front of the door. We then see a closeup of the raptors starting to dig under the door, there's no sign of the light guard. We then cut back to a wider shot of the door, and the light wire guard falls off again. Eventually it shows a closeup of the light wire guard AGAIN falling off.
