Numb3rs (2005)

Vector - S1-E3

Corrected entry: Charlie says the disease is a Pandemic Flu, to which Terry replies "The Spanish Flu" and goes off on a monologue about that illness. Pandemic is not the name of the Spanish Flu, pandemic means that it's an illness that infects both humans and animals. There have been several pandemic flus across history.

Correction: Terry mentions the Spanish Flu as an example of a pandemic, rather than saying it's the only one. By the way, the definition of the word 'pandemic' is: "Epidemic over a wide geographic area and affecting a large proportion of the population." It has nothing to do with what the disease infects.

Babel (2006)

Corrected entry: When the Japanese girl flashes her crotch at the boys in the cafeteria, it's almost shaven. But when she appears fully nude later the same day, her pubic area is rather bushy.

Correction: She is far from shaved in the cafeteria scene. Her line in the bathroom about "meeting the real hairy monster" wouldn't make much sense either if she was.

South Park (1997)

Cartman Joins NAMBLA - S4-E5

Corrected entry: When Cartman goes to see Mephisto to ask him to make him a friend, Mephisto tells him that genetic engineering has not yet advanced to the stage where he can just make people. But in "An Elephant Makes Loves To A Pig", Mephisto easily made a giant clone of Stan.

Correction: First of all that was cloning, not engineering completely new people. And second of all, the Stan clone wasn't exactly a huge success. So he's quite right when he says that the technology isn't advanced enough yet.


8th Dec 2006

The Simpsons (1989)

Trilogy of Error - S12-E18

Corrected entry: In the scene where Homer is in the bathroom, Marge yells to Homer for breakfast. We see him running naked without a towel but by the time Homer, Bart, and Lisa get to the breakfast table, Homer is wearing his usual shirt and trousers.

Correction: We only see him running naked out of the bathroom, nothing else. So he ran in to their bedroom, got his clothes on, and ran downstairs. No mistake.



Corrected entry: In the scene at the dinner table, in some shots Teddy doesn't seem to be there, but later he is sitting at the table and is part of the action.

rabid anarchist

Correction: Teddy is there in all the shots he should be visible in up until the shot that zooms in on David breaking. In this shot Teddy's chair is empty. But since Teddy is an intelligent toy with at least some degree of free will, he could have moved out of the chair for whatever reason. Maybe he didn't want to watch David break.

Over the Hedge (2006)

Corrected entry: In the scene where RJ shows everyone the trash cans and they all start eating, Verne picks up a diaper and is about to eat it, RJ stops him. Yet throughout the entire movie, you never once see any infants or children for that matter, in or around Gladys' property.

Correction: Even Gladys must have relatives or friends over sometimes, and if a visitor brought a baby, it would maybe at some point require a change of diaper.


27th Sep 2006

American Wedding (2003)

Correction: This is a character choice not a mistake. Stifler being Stifler, he could easily have had some crazy idea for a bachelor party on the middle of Lake Michigan (island, rented party boat, or his gung-ho nature doesn't care about an errant marker).


23rd Sep 2006

South Park (1997)

Correction: No not really. His voice just sounds a little different in the stomach because a bit of reverb was added to his voice. (To simulate that he is speaking in a great hall or in this case a stomach.)


12th Oct 2006

Sin City (2005)

Corrected entry: When the girls of Old Town interrogate Marv Wendy says: "What did you do with Goldie and the other 6?" referring to the severed heads on the wall in Kevin's basement; except there were only 5 heads on the wall, so where's girl No.6?

Correction: There are several possibly explanations here. Goldie got the number wrong, the sixth girl didn't go missing because of Kevin, or her head simply hadn't been hung up on the wall for whatever reason.


Corrected entry: In several of the shots in the movie, the CG animation of the character's lips doesn't match up with what the character is saying. This is due to localisation errors (change the language from Japanese to English)

Correction: This is not a mistake. Whether you're talking about animation, cartoon or live action, movies are dubbed to multiple languages all the time. To have lip movements sync up with all possible languages would be impossible. So lip movement mistakes are only valid for the original language of the movie.


Corrected entry: When Troy's mom tells Troy to get ready for the "young adults party", his dad gives him the ball. After showing his mom's reaction, the camera turns back to Troy, but his dad is still holding the ball.

Batman Begins (2005)

Corrected entry: If the machine used by Henri Ducard and his crew evaporates all water, any humans around the machine should have been vaporized too. Since the human body is 90% water, all of that should have been vaporized.

Correction: Already listed and corrected several times.


1st Aug 2006

Futurama (1999)

Correction: This is explained very clearly in the episode. When Zoidberg is ejected the Professor asks him what he was doing in there and Zoidberg answers: "That's where I live. I have no home." So Zoidberg was already in the machine before the others enter. (Probably hiding under the grated floor.)


Corrected entry: When Will is first walking around on the cannibal island and he finds Gibbs' flask connected to the string, which he later follows, he drops the flask on the ground (we can hear it hitting the ground). However, when Will is in the bone cage with Gibbs and the other crew members, Gibbs is seen holding his flask in his hand.

Correction: Will thinks it belongs to Gibbs but it is just a basic black flask with nothing on it to identify it as Gibbs' flask. As such it could have belonged to anyone and Will just associated it with Gibbs because he just came from the beached Pearl.


23rd Aug 2006

Star Wars (1977)

Corrected entry: When Luke and the 'droids are in Obi-Wan's, C-3PO says he's going to shut down. In one shot he is slightly bent, but in another noticeably straighter backed. (00:32:50)

Correction: Already listed. See mistake 64262.


Corrected entry: Keiko Kitagawa who plays Reiko may be better known to japanese fans as "Rei" from the live action show "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon".

Correction: As stated in the rules, pointing out what other movies or TV shows a paticular actress has been in is not valid trivia.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Snake locates the wreckage of Air Force One, you see the right-hand side of the tail section bearing the star-spangled banner. The flag is displayed with the field of stars to the rear of the aircraft, the opposite way round from the way it is on the right-hand side of the real Air Force One.

Correction: This is NOT the Air Force One as it looks today or in 1981. This is the Air Force One of an alternate timeline where World War III has taken place and New York has been turned into a prison island. In this timeline someone apparently decided to turn the flag on the right side the other way around (so as to have the stars facing toward the rear).

A Bronx Tale (1993)

Corrected entry: In the scene where De Niro is carrying "C" off as a boy after he gives back the money to Sonny, the narration by "C" says that, "His father & Sonny NEVER spoke to each other again". Yet, later in the film when "C" is older, and has just been slapped around by Sonny, when he suspects he had something to do with a bomb being planted in his car, De Niro runs over to Sonny and they speak to each other.

Correction: C never saw the argument between his father and Sonny because he had already walked off. So as far as he knows, they never spoke again.


31st May 2006

The Da Vinci Code (2006)

Corrected entry: Just before the English policemen shoots Silas his gun is in clear view. The position of the slide of Silas' gun indicates an empty gun, but the policemen still fire at Silas.

Christoph Galuschka Premium member

Correction: This is a character mistake, even policemen make mistakes in tense situations and didn't realise he'd run out of ammo.


23rd Jul 2006

Star Wars (1977)

Corrected entry: The number and configuration of cockpit windows on the Imperial TIE fighters changes depending on whether the shot of the fighter is interior or exterior.
