Continuity mistake: When Dark Heart is first shown pretending to fix the caring meter with a crowbar, he stands near it and hums to himself. In the next shot where he busts the gears apart, several colored star buddies gather around to look over his shoulder - but instead he's now working inside the meter. (00:31:55)

Revealing mistake: During the basement finale, lines can be seen suspending Jerry in the air when he lunges towards Peter and sends him crashing into some shelves stacked with glass bottles. (01:37:55)

Continuity mistake: When Good Luck Bear and Grumpy are finalizing the rainbow rescue beam's repairs, a cloud quake splits the Hall of Hearts' floor in two. All of the floor tiles switch direction in this shot, but they quickly return to normal as the bears reach over to save their tools. (00:58:45)

Continuity mistake: When the secret weapon is released from Professor Digitalus' Museum, it demolishes the door and scares every cat onto the Star of Hong Kong's anchor. Just a few minutes later, Fievel can be seen passed out on an eyehook in the vacant museum. That's where a flame ignites a trail of kerosene, but when it soon becomes a full-blown fire, the door is once again intact (locks, chains and all) as though nothing happened. (01:03:10 - 01:05:55)

Continuity mistake: During Nicholas' final confrontation with the Care Bears, he repeatedly asks for Kim and Jason's whereabouts - but they won't give it away. Suddenly they all execute a stare and, in one of the following shots where the evil spirit whispers "Too late," Nicholas is briefly missing his magician's cape. (01:02:20)

Lethal Weapon 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Riggs jumps from Murtaugh's station wagon to catch up with the BMW on foot, he springs onto its rear window and asks the driver for proof of insurance. Interior brake lights are shining on his clothes before he falls to the pavement. Seconds later the driver stops to take a shot at Riggs, but now the BMW is missing the interior brake light altogether. (00:03:40)

Continuity mistake: When Miss Miller is pulling items of food from a cabinet, the Chipmunks are busy having breakfast. There is a carton of milk on the table right between Alvin and Simon's bowls of cereal. But after a shot of Theodore indulging in his meal, the milk carton is gone. Now Alvin and Simon have two glasses of milk instead, and who knows how they got there because Miss Miller was too busy talking to herself on the other end of the kitchen. (00:11:50)

Factual error: When Gussie Mausheimer is pointing to a map and outlining the secret weapon plan, east and west are switched on the compass rose. (00:52:55)

Continuity mistake: During a chase scene involving Murtaugh's station wagon and a flatbed tow truck, the hotel waiter shoots at Riggs through the truck's rear window. In this series of shots, notice how Riggs is swinging by a chrome handle on the passenger's side - which wasn't there during the gunpoint hijack shot just moments ago. (00:39:30 - 00:40:45)

Continuity mistake: After Riggs' Houdini-esque underwater escape, he makes his way to the pair of hitmen on the docks above. One of them gets thrown through a car door's glass window, and Riggs uses that same door to bash his head repeatedly. As Riggs is dealing the blows, pay attention during the close-up shots and you'll see reflections in a brand new piece of glass. (01:32:50)

Continuity mistake: After inviting Rika to his trailer, Riggs walks inside and opens his fridge to get a beer. On top of the TV nearby is a VCR. Flash forward to the helicopter attack scene where Rika and Riggs are about to escape through Sam's doggy door. Here you can see there's no longer any VCR on the TV set. (01:14:20 - 01:24:15)

Continuity mistake: When the hotel waiter shoots at Riggs through the flatbed tow truck's rear window, Riggs manages to cling to a handle on the passenger's side and avoid being hit. However, immediately before the waiter runs out of bullets and throws down his gun, look sharp and you'll see how all of the window's busted glass is once again intact, like new. (00:40:50)

Continuity mistake: After Murtaugh confirms the Alba Varden is a ship, one of Rudd's henchmen enters the house armed with a knife. Moments later when they're struggling by the hobby room's blueprint table, Murtaugh grabs the nail gun and shoots him in the forehead. Now right here, you can notice the sound of a knife being thrown to the floor as he reaches for his head. But when the henchman is up against the unhinged doors, he's once again holding a knife in his right hand. (01:21:55)

Continuity mistake: During the full moon sacrifice, Alvin, Simon & Theodore are tied up to stakes and suspended in thin air on a boulder, which seven ropes are fastened to. But down below at a different angle, where alligators are gathering, only six ropes are holding them up now. (01:01:05)

Continuity mistake: As Claudia pedals on her stationary bicycle, a call comes in from Mexico. So she picks up the phone and you can see how a cord is attached near the microphone. When the shot changes to Klaus tanning in his booth, Claudia is visible through its window - but now she's talking on a cordless phone instead. (00:23:55)

Lethal Weapon 2 (1989)

Continuity mistake: When Captain Murphy is briefing Riggs and Murtaugh on their Leo Getz assignment, a small red No Smoking sign can be seen facing outwards on the desk. But as Riggs and Murtaugh stand up to leave, notice how the sign has momentarily turned itself around to face the Captain. (00:25:55)

Continuity mistake: During "A Duo", Tiger picks up Fievel's cage and places it on a nearby step. Between shots, the cage tray decreases in size significantly (judging by the overhang). (00:56:35)

Fright Night (1985)

Revealing mistake: When Jerry is dragging Charley across the bedroom by his neck, he turns around and slams him into a wall. It wouldn't be unreasonable to assume that once his head makes contact, the wall's gonna break somewhere. But notice how the wall is already cracked right above the classic convertible picture a split second before it should be (widescreen only). (00:29:05)

Continuity mistake: When Alvin and Brittany are in Athens, they start arguing over who's the hottest act in rock and roll. Notice how he's standing next to a green stool in front of some wooden containers loaded with grapes and apples. But after Alvin says "No you don't!", Brittany loses her cool and walks over to challenge him. However he's suddenly off-screen somewhere and nowhere near the fruit stand. (00:34:10)

Other mistake: Just before Jack and Pee-Wee start singing in the rail car, their train passes by some empty farmland. Pay particular attention to the buildings on the horizon, though. After a few songs, Pee-Wee can't take it anymore and decides to cover his ears and bail out - but where he lands is the very same location described before the singing began (note the exact same buildings and distance to them, which hasn't changed at all), as if the train didn't cover any ground. (00:51:15 - 00:52:05)
