Deliberate mistake: If this movie takes place 7 years after the original, how could his daughter be 13? He was part of a government project, I doubt they let them leave for relationships.

Suggested correction: This is a retconned film made after 2 other direct-to-video Universal Soldier movies were made. While the film is considered non-canon in the series, in the film itself, the facts of the original are altered to allow Luc to have a daughter.

Bishop73

Exactly. If this movie changes things that happened in previous films than they don't make sense in context to the series, that's a mistake.

brianjr0412

Essential the film can be considered the same as a reboot. Reboots and remakes can alter characters without being considered mistakes because they're not actually part of the film series, just like "Universal Soldier: The Return" is not part of the Universal Soldier film series. However, changes to characters in retconned films, shows, or books, by definition, are not mistakes.

Rob-a-Bye Baby - S2-E8

Factual error: Cops can't force someone to leave a park because they're male and have no children.

The Marine (2006)

Stupidity: After John's wife is taken he follows them. Four of them spend a good 5-10 minutes shooting the hood and down the side, he pulls right up next to them and they still shoot down the side. Why didn't they just shoot right inside the windows or or windshield? Should have been very easy since all the windows were down and John had knocked out the windshield. John would have been dead and their troubles over.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Miracle - S7-E9

Plot hole: The pharmacist's plan is really stupid. He changes all their meds so they don't work, after drinking from the fountain he changed them back so it appears the fountain healed them. The problem is if they think the fountain healed them they're not going to take their meds, so their pain would come back.

M*A*S*H (1972)

That's Show Biz - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: When the red head woman is playing the piano, it's a double. In the close up her hair is back and you can see her face. In the wide shots her hair covers her face so as to conceal the switch.

Another Path - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: Mako's hair is obviously a wig, it's most noticeable towards the end, in the close ups when he's fighting the other man.

Lucifer (2015)

Sympathy for the Goddess - S2-E17

Plot hole: Charlotte tells Chloe that she was talking to the man on the phone when she hears gunshots. Being a veteran detective Chloe should have noticed since the man's gun was in his pocket (Chloe comments that his phone was found on him) that he couldn't have been using it when he was shot, therefore Charlotte was lying. Yet she never realised this.

Continuity mistake: When Dom goes to the street race it shows him watching Letty, Letty walks over to her car and the top is down, she starts to walk around the car, the shot cuts and suddenly the top is up.

New this week Suggested correction: Letty first walks over to a car she just won with the top down (a Spyker), then closes the door of that car and then walks to her own car (Jensen Interceptor).

Revealing mistake: When the minister's wife drops the torch it sets her on fire, the camera pans up, showing she's completely engulfed. In the next shot you can see she's behind the flames and not on fire at all.

brianjr0412

Factual error: After the eastern hub explodes from the gas, and after Mathew's rant, McClane looks out over the city as the power goes out and all the lights begin to shut off. But all the headlights of the cars on the streets also begin to turn off, despite not being connected to the grid.

Question: At the end when Cato has Peeta around the neck, in close up shots is Peeta telling Katniss to shoot Cato's hand? It looks like he's pointing to Cato's hand.

brianjr0412

Chosen answer: That is correct. By pointing with his index finger, Peta is non-verbally telling Katniss exactly where to shoot the arrow. He knows she will not miss. Peta needs Cato's hand disabled. Otherwise, if Katniss shoots him somewhere else, he could still break Peta's neck.

Rendezvous - S14-E24

Revealing mistake: While McGee is bandaging what's left of Dean's arm you can see the arm is way to long to have the hand missing, you can tell the actor's hand is still there.

Twin Peaks (1990)

Show generally

Plot hole: In the season 1 finale, after they have brought James into the the station Cooper hands Truman a note and asked if he would investigate this. A few minutes later Truman comes back in with the coke that Bobby planted in James' gas tank. Cooper then asks James why he had coke in his gas tank. Cooper shouldn't know where the coke was found, Bobby never mentioned to Lucy where he put it and Truman never told Cooper where he found it.

Charmed (1998)

Pre-Witched - S3-E17

Plot hole: One of the sisters asks why the familiar doesn't just jump in front of a bus 5 times, another responds with "we're the only ones strong enough to kill him." If they are the only ones strong enough to kill him, then how come two scenes later he falls on a knife during a fight with Phoebe and dies? If a knife can kill him then it doesn't make sense that he seeks out the charmed ones.

Charmed (1998)

Pre-Witched - S3-E17

Other mistake: During a flash back of Grams in the kitchen she puts a rose in a pot, then Piper walks in, they talk and Piper starts to add some salt and a couple other ingredients into the pot. Grams asks how she knows what to add, Piper says says something about mustard - Piper wouldn't know what's in it already, she just walked in. And she never even finds it strange that there's a rose with a stem in it.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (1) - S6-E15

Plot hole: The D.A. says that ballistics show that the bullet came from Monk's gun. The simplest thing to do would be to look at the gun, they'd know that it hadn't been fired and was full. With Monk's OCD we know it was cleaned, and the sheriff came in right after, so Monk couldn't have reloaded it. Yet they overlook all of this.

Scream 4 (2011)

Plot hole: In the hospital scene at the end, why does Hicks run in and push Gale out of the way? She had no way of knowing someone was holding a gun on her and was about to be shot, as far as Hicks knew Gale was just standing there talking to someone.

brianjr0412

Factual error: The person who has the kidney removed would most likely have died since the killer is not a surgeon, he wouldn't know what he's doing.

Halloween 4 (1988)

Plot hole: At the end of Halloween 2 Michael is completely engulfed in fire for several minutes. Even if somehow he was to survive he would be covered in scars. When we see him at the beginning of part 4 he has a few small scars on his arms. Same with Loomis, he has a few small scars on his arms and one on his cheek despite being in a gigantic explosion and fire. Obviously this was done so they could bring the 2 characters back but it still makes no logical sense.

Suggested correction: Michael has the supernatural ability to heal as shown when he's shot in the eyes at the end of Halloween 2 because in this one he can see, as for Loomis it's possible he was blown into another room or into an area into the room where the flames couldn't reach him, no mistake.

Joey221995

Michael does have some scars though. If the excuse that he heals is the reason he doesn't have more than all of them would be healed after 10 years. Also Loomis was in the same room with Michael, even if Loomis was blown into another room he would have been engulfed in flames and would have been either dead from the shock wave or still burned worse than he is in part 4.
