I Am Legend (2007)

Corrected entry: Will Smith falls asleep in the bathtub with his dog. In the next scene, it's supposed to be the following morning, but he wakes up in his bed.

Correction: When he finally wakes up it is day time. When we see him in the bathtub, we never see him sleep. He might have changed positions as dawn approached because it was safer so he can catch a few hours sleep.

Corrected entry: There was a point in the movie where an elderly Rene Gagnon told Doc's son that he'd seen Ira only once since he'd left the fundraising tour. That's when he passed him on the road and didn't pick him up. About 10 minutes later in the movie, the three were at the Marine Memorial dedication together, which would make it the 2nd time Rene had seen Ira.

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, when the boy helps Johnny Depp get ready, he drops Johnny's jacket on the ground so he can hand him his gun belts. When the camera pulls back, the jacket has disappeared.

Correction: The area of ground visible after Johnny Depp walks away is very small. It is possible that the jacket is just out of shot.

The Family Stone (2005)

Corrected entry: When Everett is driving to the family home, the windshield is well, spotless, and the car is very clean looking. This helps to define Everett and Merediths's characters, the same way the sister's car is a beat up yellow car. When they have parked in the driveway however, the windshield shows the salt spray that has been cleared with the wipers.

Correction: He could have cleaned it before the drive. After 3 hours of driving in the snow cars get dirty.

James Storck

Corrected entry: Harry cuts off his finger in the end of the movie but when he talks during the very end he's got all his fingers again.

Correction: If you look closely in the end scene there is a short finger on that hand. He didnt cut his whole finger off just part above the knuckle. Watch in slow-mo and you can see it isn't there.

2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

Corrected entry: Near the end of the film, Brian and Rome are going to rescue Monica in the blue Dodge. Brian tells Rome to "put on his seat belt", and Rome subsequently grabs for it, but you notice afterwards, the he's NEVER wearing a seat belt. Not during the jump, not after the jump, and it's most obvious when they're talking inside the car after Brian shot Carter. (01:31:30 - 01:33:05)

Correction: The seatbelt is red just like his shirt. The two bars going verticaly down his shirt are the logos that are on the belt.

National Treasure (2004)

Corrected entry: When we first see the campaign buttons in Dr. Chase's office, to the left (as we are looking at it) is a brown, cylindrical, leather bag, located close to the front and left side of the furniture it is sitting on. When Dr. Chase receives the other button from Ben, she looks up at her collection of buttons and the brown bag is now all the way at the back of the furniture and quite a ways away from the case that the campaign buttons are in.

Sheri Hartman

Correction: Since it is two seperate days, it is possible it was moved in the mean time.

James Storck

Corrected entry: There are only two busses leaving the prison - the fancy one for the guards and the crappy one for the inmates - but at the game we see all the good behavior cons and the "cheerleaders". There is no way they all fit on that one bus. (01:08:35 - 01:12:45)

Correction: It is quite possible that they left at seperate times. The players leaving first to practice, etc.

Seinfeld (1990)

The Pie - S5-E15

Corrected entry: In the episode where George is hoping to buy a "discounted suit" there is a scene where he is talking to the foreign shop assistant. In the first shot he has the suit in his hands. The scene switches to the assistant, then back to George and on the second shot the suit is no longer in his hands.

Correction: The shop assistant took it out of his hands.

Any Given Sunday (1999)

Corrected entry: When Al Pacino and James Woods are arguing after James Woods was fired, a shadow of the camera and part of the camera-man can be seen on the back of James Woods shirt.

Correction: They are at football practice and it is quite possible that the camera that you see is a news camera. Reporters were at the practice, as we seen when Al Pacino punched the one of them.

James Storck

Corrected entry: In the scene where all of the guys go hunting, after it shows Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn talking, in the next shot all of them are in a row and it's panning down. Through the leaves of the tree in the foreground, if you look closely at the trunk of a tree, you can see a mans elbow and part of his head sticking out from beside the trunk.

Correction: The object that is sticking out from the tree is too far away and too blury to be sure what it is. It is possible it can be a branch, something behind the tree. But I played it in slow motion, zoomed and saw nothing that is clearly identified as a mans elbow and head

James Storck

Corrected entry: When Vince Vaughn is first tackled during the football game, he gets a small grass stain on his sweater right in the middle of his chest. In subsequent shots, the grass stain disappears.

Correction: It is very small spot and it isn't necessarily a grass stain. It could be dirt from the ground that can easily be brushed off.

Wedding Crashers (2005)

Corrected entry: When the Clearly family, John and Jeremy take a trip out on the Clearly family yacht, a close-up shot of Claire shows land in the background and there is no movement. When the shot zooms out again the yacht is shown to be in the middle of the ocean and moving.

Correction: In the close shot she is sitting in front of the boat and the boat is moving but since the land is far away it is hard to notice that. In the following wide shot the land simply isn't close enough for it to be in the shot.

James Storck

Corrected entry: During the first parts of the movie while, Chiyo is still a young girl, she is brought to live at the okiya. Notice that her friend Pumpkin is tacking a "chan" on the end of her name (i.e. Chiyo-chan) This is a Japanese honorific that girls use for each other. When you first meet someone, even after you have known the person for a while, you still refer to them with the honorific. You only drop the honorific, and refer to the person by just their name ONLY after you have known them for a while and have asked permission. Pumpkin uses the honorific, but Chiyo does not. Failing to use this honorific when you should is very rude in Japanese culture. It can't be that she does not know this because at the very beginning of the movie, she calls out to Mr. Tanaka, saying "Tanaka-san" (the Japanese honorific equivalent to saying Mr. Tanaka).

Correction: Chiyo is her real name so chan is used, but pumpkin is not Pumpkin's real name, so chan isn't always used.

The Pacifier (2005)

Corrected entry: The wife and military guy are at the bank trying to guess the password to gain access to the item the late husband left there. The troubling thing is that they could just sit there and try and try over and over again to guess at the password until they finally got it right. Talk about a huge security hole where somebody can just walk off the street wanting access to your bank account and keep guessing until they get the info right.

Spaceboy_007

Correction: The password was the idea of the husband's, not the banks. The bank person said "it was your husband's wishes." The bank person said that they did do checks on both of them, and it was OK.

James Storck

Corrected entry: In the scene where Elle is meeting Stanford Marx for the first time, when Stan says something about dogs being the best diggers, Elle's legs are far away from Stan. But immediately after this, Elle's legs are almost facing the camera.

Correction: It is very possible while the cameras were on her back, she shifted her legs. Doesn't take a lot of movement.

James Storck

Corrected entry: When everyone is picking up the ringing phones, it seems like they all have watches on. But when we see them talking, not everyone has a watch on.

Correction: When they were holding the phones, the watches or bracelets they wore slid down, some pretty far. You can see bits of them at the bottom of the screen.

I Spy (2002)

Corrected entry: When Owen and Eddie are down in the sewer system and they start talking one scene shows Owen's bow tie undone, but in the next scene it is done up again.

Correction: It is the type of scene where they show different conversations to simulate a long time. There showed three different conversations, and the middle one they both did have their bowties undone, but it is quite possible that they were getting ready to leave so they did the ties again.

The Pacifier (2005)

Corrected entry: When Shane jumps on the bike to follow Seth, there are two women walking on the sidewalk walking towards a bus, a car and the bike that Shane is on. However, when the camera angle changes, the bus, the car and the bike can all be seen, but the women are nowhere to be seen, though they should have been.

Correction: The girls are walking in one direction, and the bike, car, and bus are going in the opposite direction. All three pass the girls, and then the angle changes. At first it was pointing towards the girls, then it was pointing away from the girls, so the girls shouldnt be in the picture. Techincally they are behind the camera.

Liar Liar (1997)

Corrected entry: It is established that Fletcher is totally incapable of lying, even if he doesn't want anyone to believe the lie (e.g. the scene with the blue pen). That being the case, when he sarcastically remarks that Samantha Cole weighs 105 'in her bra', he shouldn't be able to say it as it's not true.

Correction: But from the tone in his voice we can tell he is saying it sarcastically. Everyone knows that her breasts aren't 105 pounds. Since it is meant sarcastically it isn't a lie.
