The Heat (2013)

Continuity mistake: Sarah tries to help a choking restaurant customer by cutting into his throat and inserting a straw. Blood starts squirting out onto her shirt, and her hands are completely covered in blood. But then when Shannon and Sarah are in the parking lot, there's no blood to be seen. She may have thoroughly washed her hands, but her shirt should have had blood still on it.

Just Go with It (2011)

Continuity mistake: In the scene when the camera is panning over each character in bed (after Daniel has announced he's marrying Palmer the next day), you see Dolph sleeping in the bath tub. He rolls over and his arm falls into the toilet, and you can see that the seat is up. A moment later, the little boy sleep walks into the bathroom and sits on the toilet. Dolph's arm is still in the toilet, but the seat is now down.

You Again (2010)

Continuity mistake: In the post-rehearsal dinner scene where Marni and Joanna start fighting and throwing dishes, Joanna dumps a bowl of green soup over Marni's head. As Will is chastising both of them, the green slime on Marni's clothes and hair changes in each shot when the camera cuts back to Marni. It's most noticeable on her bangs, which are sometimes plastered flat against her forehead and other times are separated into spiky pieces.

No Reservations (2007)

Continuity mistake: There's a scene in Kate's restaurant kitchen where Nick asks Zoe to hold the big bowl of spaghetti he had been eating, and she starts eating it. At one point there's a piece of basil hanging off the edge of the bowl and when the camera cuts back to her, it's gone.

Continuity mistake: When "Lola" (the lingerie-clad assassin) forces her way into Frank's car and makes him drive at gunpoint, her heavy black eye makeup is smeared under her eyes. Throughout the scene it changes from being a very wide smudge to just being a little smudged under her eyes.

Bewitched (2005)

Continuity mistake: When Jack is asking Isabel out on a date as they're standing by their trailers, he's very excited and walking backwards towards his trailer. His bicycle is behind him and it looks like he's just about to trip over it. When the camera cuts back to him, he's closer his trailer door and hasn't fallen over the bicycle, but it's not visible behind him anymore either.

The Terminal (2004)

Continuity mistake: In the scene in Dixon's office, where he's trying to explain to Viktor that his country has fallen in a military coup, he uses an apple and potato chips to make his point. When the bag of chips pops open it sprays broken bits of chips all over Viktor's torso and lap. Although Viktor does brush some off, in the next shot he stands up to leave and there are no chips on his clothes or lap. You could believe he brushed them away off camera, but don't even see any on the floor around him. (00:07:05)
