Continuity mistake: When Dorothy finds the small green glass ornament, she shouts "Oz!", and the Scarecrow appears. In the shot when Dorothy calls "Oz", there are two large ornaments to the right side of the counter. Then when it cuts and the scarecrow "appears", the ornaments have now moved a few feet away, so that the Scarecrow can comfortably "appear." (01:23:55)

Jumanji mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Alan is trapped in the quicksand, and the others are giving him items to hold onto, you can see behind him, to the viewers right of the blue chair in the background, a small stack of newspapers. But in later shots, such as after Peter runs out of the attic to go to the shed, and we then see Judy crawl over and grab the wooden music stand, to hit the spiders, the stack of newpapers has vanished, and a few other items change position, like the tennis racket. (01:20:55 - 01:23:00)

General questions

I watched this TV series a very long time ago, and am dying to know what it's called, as it was FANTASTIC. It was about a girl who travelled back in time, using a sundial. It was historical and set in large grounds.

Chosen answer: The series you're referring to was called "Moondial", and aired in 1990. You can read more about it at http://www.tvtome.com/tvtome/servlet/ShowMainServlet/showid-24751/.

Revealing mistake: When Gort picks up Patricia Neal, then heads back to the spacecraft, you can see a zipper on the front of Gort's costume, which is never there in any other shots. (01:17:05)

Revealing mistake: When Gort goes behind the wall to pick up Patricia Neal, the camera moves about an inch in the same shot, because they had to stop filming, go rig the wires up to Patricia, then start filming once again. (01:17:00)

Question: How come, Aunt Josephines house collapses, yet reappears later, when we see Count Olaf having to redo the tasks the children faced. Surely they didn't rebuild it! It looks exactly the same, anyway.

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: They probably built a simple replicant of the house. They wouldn't rebuild every detail just to punish Olaf, especially since it was just going to fall down again.

Jumanji (1995)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when the pods and vines start growing all over the lounge, there is one shot of a green vine crawling towards a carpet, and then slithering under. Watch closely, near the carpet, and you can see the wire attached to, and controlling the vine, because the light shines on it, exposing it rather well for a second. (00:48:40)

Mean Girls (2004)

Mean Girls mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Regina becomes angry, and writes the horrible message in the burn book about herself to frame Cady and the others, the handwriting changes between shots. Look at "DO NOT TRUST HER" and "She is a fugly slut." - The handwriting changes noticeably, and "fugly slut" changes a lot - she writes it so the "g" and "y" have curled ends, yet it cuts to her sticking her photo in, and the ends to the tails on the "g" and "y" are straight. The line under "fugly slut," and the exclamation mark both change too. (01:00:15 - 01:00:45)
