Stuck On You (2003)

Plot hole: Bob and Walt supposedly share a liver, which apparently Bob has three quarters of. This would mean that the liver is in the join between them. All of the rolling around, twisting and banging of this section between them would severely damage their liver, and probably kill them.

Stuck On You (2003)

Continuity mistake: We see that the join between Bob and Walt is very flexible, and can be twisted and contorted easily. Why is it then that when the brothers are lying in bed and Bob turns on his side to sleep, does Walt move with him. They should in fact be facing away from each other.

Porky's (1982)

Continuity mistake: When Porky pulls the lever we see the guys fall into the river. Then from another shot we see them get out, and go round to argue with Porky, but they are now dry. Impossible considering the few seconds time difference. (00:38:05)

Question: What is the "Spcial Meat" that is sold in the butchers? Most people believe it to be human flesh, but it's never specified.

Scrappy

Chosen answer: The members of the League refuse to admit what it's actually supposed to be, but have stated that it's possible to work it out from clues in the series. Human flesh seems like the most likely candidate, probably supplied by Edward and Tubbs from their general butchery of any non-local who sets foot in the place. Another theory is that cocaine is involved in some way as its effects seem to match most of the things that the special stuff is supposed to cause. So, combining the two, and why not, the "special stuff" is non-local human meat sausages impregnated with cocaine.

Stuck On You (2003)

Audio problem: At the start of the film we see the twins flipping burgers in their restaurant. We see that while one is throwing the burgers the other is catching them in the buns, and then dusting them with a metal jar of something. After every burger he bangs the jar on the table a few times. One one occasion, he actually bangs the jar on a burger bun, yet the sound effect is still played.

Trivia: In one of the takes while filming the scene where Frodo and Sam are about to run to the Black Gate, and Gollum pulls them back, Andy Serkis (Gollum) pulled so hard on them both that he ripped off the wig worn by Sean Astin (Sam).

Money Train (1995)

Money Train mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Wesley is driving his motorbike down the subway stairs to catch the money train, we see a couple on the stairs who both move to the side (backs against the wall), but in the next shot with the camera facing up the stairs, the couple have disappeared. (01:19:10)

Money Train (1995)

Continuity mistake: Wesley rides his motorbike onto the tracks to catch the money train. We later see him on the money train with Woody, but where has he hidden his bike? He could not have just left it there as it would have been found and he would have been arrested in connection with the crime.

Forrest Gump (1994)

Continuity mistake: After Forrest gets his medal he meets Jenny at the anti-war demonstration. When she goes to the bus to leave they are standing talking. In one shot his medal is tucked inside his jacket, but in the next shot (right before he takes his medal off) it is on the outside of his jacket. (01:09:15)

Phoenix Nights (2001)

Trivia: Actor Patrick McGuinness, who plays Paddy the doorman is actually Peter Kay's best friend in real life. They also appear in a John Smith advert together.

Scrappy

Deliberate mistake: At the end of the film in the shot from behind as Bilbo is walking towards Elrond and then up the boat ramp, we see the head of the "little person" playing the small version of him. His head is actually in a different proportion compared to the previous shots. The top of his head is considerably larger than before. (02:04:15)

Question: What happens to Saruman? I know that he is in his tower, but we never really finds out what happens to him. We also know that the burning of the shire scenes are not in the film, so we don't see him get killed. Is this one for the Extended DVD?

Scrappy

Chosen answer: The extended edition may have Peter Jackson's version of what happened to Saruman but it won't have the book's version. In the book, Sarauman is defeated by Gandalf and expelled from Isengard and goes to the Shire where he takes command and enslaves the hobbits. Merry, Pippin and Sam return to the Shire and organise a rebellion. Saruman leaves, thoroughly defeated, and is killed by Grima Wormtongue. None of this was filmed for the movie. In the extended version of the movie Saruman stands on the top of the tower and has an argument with both King Theoden and Gandalf when Grima Wormtongue appears and is realizing he had been in the wrong with a few encouraging words from the group below. Saruman then belittles Grima Wormtongue hitting him to the ground. Enraged Grima Wormtongue then stabs Saruman in the back several times causing Saruman to fall and lands torso first onto a spike on a water wheel that is still continuing to turn with all the extra water from the dam burst. This is why the Ent, Treebeard, says "the filth of Saruman is washing away" also the Palantir falls out of his robes and that's why Pip finds it in the water.

Continuity mistake: During one of the big building explosions we see a police officer on a horse. He turns on the horse, and then the camera cuts to the next shot and we see him turning on his horse again. (00:23:45)

Trivia: The great grandson of Lord of the Rings author JRR Tolkien has landed a spot in the final movie, Return of the King. 34-year-old Royd Tolkien was asked by director Peter Jackson to play a Gondorian Ranger in the final movie.

Trivia: A punk rock band named Save Ferris got their name from this film. During the film we see several "Save Ferris" references.

Scrappy

Question: I was watching The Two Towers on DVD the other day and I am sure that I saw John Rhys Davies as one of the villagers that are helping to defend Helm's Deep. Is this true? It's not the spear-throwing Peter Jackson cameo - this character lifts a rock (or something) above his head and lets out a very John-like roar. Blink and you'll miss it.

Scrappy

Chosen answer: At what time? Peter Jackson's cameo (spear) is at 1:10:07 and producer Barry Osborne's (rock) is at 1:10:17. I couldn't spot another 'lift something over head and shout' shot.

Trivia: During the scene where everyone is sitting in a circle giving each other massages, we can see the band 'Tenatious D' (Jack Black's band) in the background.
