Secretary (2002)

Continuity mistake: Lee throws her sewing kit and case of cutting tools into the river, as they hit the water we see a brief shot of them floating. When the shot changes to below the water, however, both items are sinking rapidly. (00:53:05)

The One With The Ride-Along - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the episode, Rachel is back in Ross' apartment, trying to mend the ornament she broke when she was in there earlier. Ross comes in unexpectedly and she tosses the broken pieces into the lightshade, leaving the glue on the side table. In subsequent shots, the glue goes from lying on its side, to standing up, a number of times. (00:16:00)

Angel-A (2005)

Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Andre has dragged Angela from the river, towards the beginning of the film, the two engage in a lengthy conversation. As the camera moves between close-ups of Angela's face, and shots of Andre, where Angela is standing in the background, her hair keeps changing from being off her face to covering her face.

Heart of Gold - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: The first shot we see of Nandi waking up shows her hair loose on the pillow, and her hand curled up on the sheet beside her; in the next shot, a close-up, her hair is mostly tucked behind her ear and her hand is closer to her face than previously. (00:25:10)

Heart of Gold - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Nandi is killed, she falls to the floor on her back, her left arm by her side and her right on the floor by her head. We see her in this position a number of times, but when Mal and Inara look at one another at the end of this scene, Nandi's left arm is now lying across her chest. Neither of the other characters did this to her. (00:35:00)

The Message - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Jayne receives a hat from his mother in the post, and when he takes it out of the package it is covered in wood shavings or some similar packing material. He puts it on his head like that, but for the remainder of the scene, the hat alternates from being covered in shavings to clean and back again.

Trash - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Right at the end of the episode, when River says 'Also - I can kill you with my brain' to Jayne in the infirmary, in the long shots she is leaning much further through the doorway than she is in the close-ups, where her face is barely past the edge. (00:39:40)

Out of Gas - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When we see the flashback of Mal and Zoë first entering Serenity's cargo bay, just after Mal has bought the ship, there is a cable on the floor behind them. For a short moment, we see the cable being dragged over the grille right behind them, then the shot changes and there is nothing there at all; the only cable is much further back and lying at a completely different angle.

Out of Gas - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Kaylee has just put Simon's birthday cake down on the table when the explosion happens, but in many subsequent shots of both the table and the floor in the dining room, the cake is nowhere to be seen.

Our Mrs. Reynolds - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Saffron first hits Wash, he falls with his head in the centre of the doorway (from our point of view), but a second later, when she goes to lift his legs through the door so she can shut it, his head is noticeably more to the left (again, from the viewer's point of view). (00:27:05)

Serenity (1) - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: In the close-up shot of the explosive in the sticky substance being applied to the outside of the cargo hold, the pink wire sticks out at the bottom, and in a loop in the middle. In the next shot, from slightly further back, the wire doesn't stick out anywhere, and the shape of the explosive ring has changed and become more oval. (00:05:30)

Jaynestown - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When the foreman first slaps Simon on the back, the muddy handprint has quite identifiable finger marks, but in the next shot, when Simon is walking away, the muddy shape has changed. In a subsequent shot, the mudprint has disappeared entirely. (00:04:25 - 00:06:00)

Continuity mistake: When Paige is shown brushing her hair in front of the mirror, there is no background shown in the mirror behind her; it's completely black. We see this a few times while she's sitting at the dressing table, but then when she gets up to gather her things and take them to the kitchen, we see the room reflected normally. (00:43:25 - 00:44:30)

Continuity mistake: When Mazzilli is talking to the reporter in front of the school, he lights smoking firecrackers and throws them behind him. When we see him light the first one, it is at least three or four inches long when we see it in his hand, but much shorter an instant later when it hits the ground. This happens again with the next one too, but this time it's shorter when we first see it and slightly longer when it hits the ground. (00:54:25)

The Island (2005)

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning of the film, when Lincoln and Jordan first escape, we see them running and hiding in the room full of new 'products'. Water is constantly falling from the ceiling like rain, and both of them are soaked, to the point of water running from their hair and clothing in streams. In the next shot, however, when they have just left the room, they are little more than damp.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase on the freeway, Jane forces one of the pursuing cars off the road by driving, with it, through those large barrels of water near freeway exits. Water cascades over the cars; one interior shot shows that it's virtually impossible to see through the windscreen. Yet in the next shot, a few seconds later, all the cars are completely dry.

Continuity mistake: After the botched hit in Mexico, Jane returns to her office, a little beaten up, and her associates tend to her wounds. Particularly clear is an injury to her right shoulder - it has bled enough to mark her singlet top, and is covered by a large piece of plaster. Yet when she dances with John in the restaurant, only a few hours later, there is no sign of plaster or wound.

Memento (2000)

Memento mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Leonard is twice shown looking at the back of the Ferdy's Bar coaster, with 'Come by after, Natalie' written on the back. The handwriting is noticeably different in the two shots, particularly the first two letters of 'after' and the middle 'a' in 'Natalie'. (01:20:15 - 01:28:55)
