Matilda (1996)

Matilda mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Matilda makes the chalk write the message on the blackboard, the writing changes. Watch the "Agatha," especially. The handwriting changes and the comma changes length, as well as most of the message changing. Also at the end of the message Matilda "writes" two long lines under it, which cross over. Yet later when Miss Trunchbull flies off the globe you can see there is just one line under the message, not two. (01:20:20 - 01:23:00)

Continuity mistake: In the showroom, there is an old car covered in dust with "$100" witten in the dust. Harry then adds two more zeros after this. Through the garage scene, the two zeros noticeably change. They go from drawn far apart and unperfectly round to touching each other and perfectly round. (00:14:20 - 00:15:50)

Continuity mistake: When Cindy is driving along, singing, both of her windows are rolled down about halfway. We can see the window next to Cindy is rolled down halfway in the first two closeups of Cindy. It then cuts to a wideshot of the car and then another closeup, and the window is now fully winded down. Cindy clearly never winds the window down, it has just rolled down between shots. (00:13:40)

Continuity mistake: When Jenna first walks around after turning 30, the camera pans around the apartment and we get a good view of the small glass table in the lounge, and there is a remote control next to a magazine. When Jenna goes and sits on the yellow chair though, the remote is now on the magazine. Later when Jenna is throwing her letters, the remote has moved to its original place. (00:13:30 - 00:14:45)
