Revealing mistake: After Roger reads Marvin Acme's will out loud, all of the toons start jumping for joy. Meanwhile the music machine is still activated in the background, and its colorful flashing lights are being reflected on the ground near Betty Boop and Tweety at the front of the crowd. With all of the toons grouped together like they are, the machine's colorful lights should have been obscured, not reflected. (01:35:30)

Who Framed Roger Rabbit mistake picture

Factual error: When Judge Doom is at the window of R.K. Maroon's office firing his gun at Eddie, a photo of R.K. beside the armchair takes a direct hit, but only the glass frame gets shattered. Unless it was bulletproof, the picture should have been pierced right through. (01:07:10)

Visible crew/equipment: When the two government agents are about to cut off Elliott and his friends at the bottom of the hill, a film crew's vehicle is reflected on their car's passenger side. (01:40:35)

Batman (1989)

Revealing mistake: After the Batmobile's pair of machine guns riddles a straight line of bullet holes through a bay door of Axis Chemicals, it drives in and eventually goes on to blow up the plant. It might seem like the bullet holes themselves would weaken the bay door enough for the Batmobile to push through. But instead - as the bay door falls to the ground - notice how a ready-made seam splits apart directly above the line of bullet holes. (01:34:15)

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Elliott and E.T. are behind the slatted closet doors listening to Mary read Gertie a bedtime story, the set of slats nearest the door frame opens by itself between shots (right about the point where Elliott wraps a scarf around E.T.'s neck). (00:59:00)

Continuity mistake: After the frog incident, Elliott opens Gertie's closet doors to reveal E.T. dressed in drag. He initially grabs both knobs and starts pulling, but in the following shot no hands are seen gripping the knobs and the doors open up automatically. (00:53:40)

Continuity mistake: In the opening verse of "There Are No Cats in America," Papa finishes telling his story and an elderly mouse faints, dropping her sewing needles and yarn to the floor. But when the chorus begins in the following shot, she's suddenly holding them again. (00:12:10)
