Continuity mistake: When the church bell is rehung and struck, it goes from shoulder height to well above head height, then back to shoulder height in subsequent shots. (01:28:15)

Continuity mistake: At one point near the beginning of the infiltration of the helicarriers, Captain America's chinstrap has a twist from his right jaw down to where it covers his chin. This is visible in two shots. The next time his right side is shown afterward, the twist is gone. The chinstrap is too tight for it to have flipped on its own accidentally, and the pad which covers his chin is molded so it wouldn't have sat properly on his face even if it had somehow flipped around. There were undoubtedly several prop helmets made, and this one must have been put together incorrectly.

Continuity mistake: After Oz and Theodora have climbed down from the small cave where they hid from their first encounter with a flying baboon and are having a brief conversation, the brim of Theodora's hat alternates from being held up on her right side in the shots from behind her, and being down as it normally is in the shots from in front of her. Presumably this was done to prevent the hat brim from obscuring Oz's face.

Glee (2009)

Avatar Day - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When we first see Aang in the stocks, Sokka advises him to use his Airbending to escape and begins "imitating" Aang's kata. During one pose, we see Sokka is wearing the boomerang, or at least the sheath it was in, that he had to leave behind at the beginning of the episode. He wasn't wearing it before, isn't wearing it after, and doesn't actually get it back until the climax. (00:02:09 - 00:06:33)

Continuity mistake: When Sarah and Becky are in the attic imagining their muffin banquet, the candles on the table are melted nearly down to the nub, until the last shot of them in this scene in which they are full length candles burning tall.

Evening (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Buddy takes Ann down to the dock to meet Harris, he and Buddy get into the boat and begin getting it ready to sail. As Harris raises the mainsail, we see that the head of the sail is connected to a gaff. In the wide shot immediately following this shot, the head is connected to the mast, and the gaff has disappeared entirely. In all other shots of the boat, the gaff is present. Harris can't have drawn the sail so tightly that the gaff was completely vertical, thereby blending it with the mainmast so as to be imperceptible from a distance, because the shape of the sail would have made that impossible.

Wall-E (2008)

Continuity mistake: The sky over Wall-E's city is totally covered, from horizon to horizon, with thick brown clouds. When the Earth is seen from space at the beginning of the film, there is no such cloud cover anywhere on the planet. It looks more like the old Universal Studios logo than the actual Earth. The clouds appear out of nowhere as the camera zooms down. (00:01:30)

Continuity mistake: When Lee Scoresby is talking to Iorek on Lee's balloon, Scoresby runs his fingers through his hair to pull it out of his face before he puts his hat back on. After replacing his hat atop his head, he brushes a few stray hairs behind his left ear. The shot briefly cuts to Iorek, then back to Lee. More hair than he originally had to tuck back is covering his left temple.

Dan in Real Life (2007)

Continuity mistake: In the scene during the credits, the right shoulder strap on Marie's dress has fallen off her shoulder. Her body turns as she dances in the circle and her right shoulder is not visible momentarily. When it becomes visible again, her strap is up. No one touched her and she did not "shrug" it up.

Continuity mistake: When Splinter is holding the Shredder over the building's ledge, the cord on Mike's discarded nunchaku changes position in relation to the spear's point. It moves closer to the point for a single shot, then moves back to its original position in the subsequent shots.
