Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking - S2-E16

Deliberate mistake: This episode is meant to be entirely a documentary made by Abed. At the end of the episode, there's a shot where the gang is looking into Pierce's window, except the camera is right in front of the window they're looking through. If Abed was filming this he would literally be right in front of the gang, completely obscuring their view through it.

Detroit: Become Human

Other mistake: When Kara first comes home to Todd and Alice, she clears 2 empty plates off the table, one for Todd and one for Alice, however it's later revealed that Alice isn't human and therefore doesn't eat. No need for 2 plates if Alice doesn't even eat food.

Kicks - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Jake is explaining why he let Richmond go, the left zip of his hoodie goes from folded out to flat between shots and back again a few times. This is especially noticeable when he says "the old me." (00:18:07)

Halloween III - S3-E5

Other mistake: Holt takes the crown out of the back of Jake's cabinet. However this wouldn't be possible as the crown was in the top drawer. This would have a back on it and it wouldn't be accessible by just removing the back of the cabinet.

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Revealing mistake: During Danny's party you can see Monica's apartment through the gap between the door and the wall, despite the party taking place on a lower floor. This is because they just reused the set for the hallway to save having to build a new set for the "lower floor."

Trivia: During scenes where Hermione is writing with a quill, Emma Watson was actually writing things like "my name is Emma Charlotte Watson", "I am 10 years old" and (my personal favourite) "I really like this quill."

HalloVeen - S5-E4

Other mistake: When Amy reaches down to get the key out of her shoe she literally only bends slightly. There is no way that she could've reached all the way down to her foot, or retrieve the key in the seconds before she gets it. (00:14:30)

The Venue - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: When Charles shows the picture of the horse and says "look what you get when you search for 'Charles Boyle medal of valor'" he's typed "peanut butter the horse" into his phone.

Mr. Santiago - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: When Jake is typing on his computer just before Terry talks to him about meeting Amy's dad for the first time, his computer is and remains on the desktop doing nothing. (00:02:05)

Elf (2003)

Plot hole: Throughout the film we see several characters talk about how there's no Christmas spirit and how nobody believes in Santa anymore. If, in this universe at least, Santa does exist, it's almost impossible for people to think this. If the parents deliver the presents then how do they explain the excess gifts that Santa brings? We know that Michael is on the nice list because Santa shows him towards the end, so Michael must get presents from Santa. There is no way that Walter can't believe in Santa then because Michael gets gifts from him every year.

Suggested correction: Emily and Walter probably just thought each present Michael got from Santa was from the other parent. I'm not sure if Walter got him presents or not but you can see that Emily did as she's seen walking home with presents when she's on the phone with Walter.

That is highly unlikely. When my daughter was "believing in Santa" age, my wife and I always talked about what we were getting her, so we didn't duplicate. Plus that theory wouldn't work for single parents.

It is very likely because it's obvious Walter is not in the Christmas spirit like his wife and Michael are. Plus it's obvious Walter is not focused on his family at the beginning of the movie so it's safe to assume the original submission is correct.

Outnumbered (2007)

Episode #3.6 - S3-E7

Other mistake: When Pete goes to turn off the car alarm, you get a look at the key he uses, this key is for a Vauxhall Corsa, and this isn't the car that's going off, it's not even by the same manufacturer. (00:12:15)
