Revealing mistake: When Ernest runs away from Lisle, after he nearly drinks the live-forever potion, he runs down a hallway and commences to open a door with a doorknob on the left side of the door. It then cuts to the other side of the door, of Ernest walking through the door (into the party), and now the doorknob is also on the left side of the door, but it should be on the right side.

Child's Play (1988)

Continuity mistake: When Andy returns to the apartment, he goes to his room and shuts himself in his spacious cupboard. In the cupboard there's a pile of toys including a red remote-control car, a baseball bat etc., and between shots the pile of toys changes. Eg. when Andy looks at the pile, the baseball bat is totally exposed, yet when he picks up the remote-control car the bat is wrapped in a sweater. (01:09:35)

Child's Play (1988)

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Mike is in the car and Chucky attacks him, pulling the skipping ropes around his neck and stabbing a knife through the carseat etc., in all the wideshots of the car driving, the stunt driver wearing what looks like a black woolly hat replacing Mike is blatant.

Continuity mistake: When Andy takes Chucky to Eddie Caputo's home, Andy stops off for a tinkle, putting Chucky on a rocking chair. We then see a view of Eddie Caputo's home, and there are wooden items and various junk lying around near the bottom of his front steps and yard. Yet seconds later when the camera pans up to the front stairs as if it's in the POV of Chucky running, nearly all the items have disappered. (00:35:50)

Continuity mistake: When Karen struggles to keep the door shut, as Chucky tries to pull it open, Chucky stabs his knife through the door, cutting Karen's hand. Between shots the hole made by the knife gets mysteriously longer, and all the holes Chucky makes in the door seem to change shape/size/location. Also, when Chucky stabs through the door, cutting Karen, a small stain of blood is left on the door. Between three consecutive shots the blood is there, then disappears then reappears. (01:17:45)

Child's Play (1988)

Continuity mistake: Karen, Andy and Mike are shut in Karen's bedroom and Chucky has the opportunity of getting into the bedroom via two doors - a door leading to the hallway, or a door leading to the bathroom. The door leading to the hallway has a key in it, on the side of the door facing INTO Karen's bedroom. Yet later, Chucky runs down the hallway facing the outside of Karen's bedroom door, and first there is no key in the keyhole. Yet when Chucky smashes the door open, there is now a key in the keyhole on the outside of Karen's bedroom door. (01:17:20 - 01:18:15)

Deliberate mistake: After Baloo and Bagheera escape from the monkeys, they both have a black eye. However, during their conversation by the water, between shots their black eyes vanish. [This is a Disney tradition, but still a mistake.]

Continuity mistake: In the apartment, Chucky nearly transfers his soul into Andy, until Karen and Mike come and save Andy. Karen then takes off her coat and puts it over Andy, who lays on the floor. In a wideshot, when Mike gives Karen his gun, the coat lays about halfway up his body, yet when it cuts to a closeup we see the coat laying over his body all the way up to his neck. (01:13:10)

Simone (2002)

Continuity mistake: When Viktor has been arrested for "murdering" Simone, he is in a room with a man who walks between two peg-lines, with magazines and posters featuring Simone on them, pegged up. Between shots the magazines pegged up change, ie. When the man walks along in a closeup saying "This is fake, fake, fake, fake, fake..", he walks past a big poster of Simone standing, posing in a leather suit, and to the viewers right of this poster, a magazine called "Variety" and then next to that a magazine called "Simone" are pegged up. Then when it cuts to a wideshot, these two magazines are totally different ones, as you can tell by the front cover picture / layout / text etc. Other magazines change and move around too.

Simone (2002)

Continuity mistake: When Elaine is round Viktors beachhouse, they kiss and confess they want each other back, and then Viktor tells Elaine that Simone is a simulation etc., and in the background on a small wooden drawer is Viktor's Jack Daniels bottle, his glass and some champagne glasses. Yet when Elaine gets up, and says to Viktor "She made you", you can see the small glass behind them on the drawer, but the JD bottle and champagne glasses aren't there and they should be there in the shot. In addition, during this whole scene, the red lamp on the small desk behind them moves from sitting on the left, to the right hand side of the small wooden desk a few times throughout. (01:22:15)
