Correction: The pattern on the teapot suggests that the spots are actually overhead lights in the kitchen. The patterns are constant throughout the scene and the same at every angle whereas crew's spotlights have different placements for different angled shots.

The Office (2005)

Correction: The show acknowledges cameramen, the shadow doesn't break continuity.

Wall-E (2008)

Corrected entry: When Wall-E sees the one red light, he chases it as it seems to have a mind of its own. Later we find out that this red light belonged to a group of red lights from a space ship, so how did this red light escape on its own?


Correction: The red light (along with the others) is a tracking device meant to guide the ship to the landing point. All of the lights likely start out as seemingly random, then gradually track to the correct location, getting less random as they go.

Corrected entry: Patrick hits his face against his house, causing his teeth to fall out. Two shots later, his teeth are back in his mouth and none are on the ground.


Correction: This is a gag and is something that's done quite frequently in the show, characters getting servery injured and then appearing normal.


Correction: That's a common gag in cartoons. Even in a future episode, Fear of a Krabby Patty, how Spongebob pulled a piano out of nowhere and Plankton questioned where it came from.

Cast Away (2000)

Corrected entry: When Chuck reaches the island and writes "HELP", the letters face the water. Later, when Chuck climbs the mountain of rocks, the letters are now sideways and facing him instead of the water.


Correction: He first writes the word help in the sand. Later he makes the word from tree stumps the other way around.

The Martian (2015)

Corrected entry: When Mark is communicating with the scientists at any given point while he is on Mars, they can communicate back and forth within seconds. In reality, it would take between 4.3-21 minutes for a message to reach Mark and vice versa.


Correction: They explain in the movie that it takes 30 minutes between communications. Obviously cut out due to not making people wait between every sentence.
