Jexi (2019)

Revealing mistake: When they're playing kickball the first time (when Phil sucks at it), the shots change from either the sun rising/setting to fog and cloud cover.

Used Cars (1980)

Factual error: When they're in the bar watching the football game, after Rudy made his bet - they're supposed to be watching Denver vs Kansas City. You can see that the uniforms are not of either team (even if it were throwback jerseys). When the guy runs into the end zone, you can see the mascot of the Sun Devils on the turf, as the colors of the uniform are that of the Arizona Sun Devils.

Good Boys (2019)

Continuity mistake: When they are trying to pop Lucas' arm back into its socket he has a ball gag in his mouth. Watch, as the depth of him sucking on the ball gag changes. Sometimes it's near the front of his mouth, sometimes he has it almost completely swallowed.

Suggested correction: I rewatched the scene three times and I don't think it is a continuity mistake. It is true that sometimes the ball is mostly outside of the lips and other times it is mostly in the mouth. But there is a pattern - out, in, out, in, out. I get the impression that the depth of the ball in Lucas' mouth correlates with his breathing (inhaling or exhaling) and/or varies with his arm being pulled by Max and Thor. The ball goes lower in his mouth when Max and Thor start yanking.

Growing Pains (1985)

Weekend Fantasy - S1-E8

Other mistake: Having thought that the kids were in trouble, or away when Jason and Maggie go away for the weekend, they call the next door neighbor to check on them and have them call them back at the hotel that they are staying, but they did not give a phone number to be called. A few minutes later, they call the police as there was no answer - and Maggie says "Jason, you didn't even give them a number to call us back" - but they didn't give the number to the neighbor, and the police would more than likely have it for caller ID reasons.

Growing Pains (1985)

Trivia: In one episode when Jason and Maggie are arguing, one of the kids comes in and said "Have you seen dad?" - and Mike responds with "Tall guy, good hair, looks like a talk show host?" - the next person comes in and asks if they have seen mom, and Mike said "Blonde, pretty, looks like Donna Devorona?" (who was an Olympian at that time). Jason (Alan Thicke) used to have a talk show in Canada called Thick of the Night, and Joanna Kerns is the sister of Olympian Donna Devorona.

Plot hole: In the very beginning at the mall, where the older guy comes in to the pizza shop and sits in Stacy's section - the co-worker says "she's not even in high school yet." First of all, the school she's at is "Ridgemont High", and secondly, if she wasn't in high school (which would mean she would be younger than 15 at least) - how could she have a job, where the minimum age is at least 15? Even by mall standards, it's doubtful they would hire someone who is 14.

Revealing mistake: When they are sitting in the bus station in Jefferson City - and then the next scene is the somewhat "speeded up" shot of the kid running up and down the aisles of the bus (before the "take a picture, it'll last longer" scene) - as the kid is running up and down the aisle, watch the woman in the front left seat. The handheld windmill that the kid is running with hits her in the head and her eyes "pop open" as to be surprised by the hit.

Question: Carrie mentions that her longest or most serious relationship was eight-and-a-half days with an acid rock singer, that she came home and found in the shower with his mother. Wasn't she about to get married when Bandit found her? Would you not think that she actually had a relationship with him (and didn't she say she was pregnant, therefore, had to get married?).

ckbyers

Answer: She had a relationship with her fiance but in her mind it wasn't serious. She is running away because she is being pressured into marriage with a man she doesn't love. So the statement is accurate, her longest serious relationship was only 8 days.

BaconIsMyBFF

Answer: The "eight-and-a-half days" comment is a hyperbole - a deliberate exaggeration that is used to make a point. She was not being serious when she said that.

Answer: Where does she say she was pressured into marriage? - didn't have to really be snarky about it. They pick her up, she says there is a wedding in search of a bride... doesn't mean she was pressured... In fact, there is no definitive statement that she was forced to marry him or didn't love him. All she says is "I'm sorry Junior!" at the end. She just bolted from the wedding... people get cold feet all the time.

ckbyers

Answer: She is running away because she is being pressured into marriage with a man she doesn't love. That implies that there was no declining the proposal.

Answer: Then she could have said no to the proposal (just saying) when it was done (off camera).

ckbyers

So what's your point? The character agreed to the marriage under pressure, then changed her mind and decided to run. Where's the problem?

Three's Company (1977)

Show generally

Question: In the second episode Chrissy's mother comes to visit. In future episodes her father comes to visit - who is an actual "father" (i.e. priest). Aren't priests forbidden to be married?

ckbyers

Answer: He's not a Catholic priest. He's a pastor, with the title Reverend, at a community church who chooses to wear a clerical collar. Some people still address pastors as "Father" though. I'm not sure of his religious denomination, but most pastors can marry.

Bishop73

Answer: Yes Pastors can marry... I was asking for Priests since his collar appears to be that of a Catholic descent.

ckbyers

Some protestant pastors wear the clerical collar as well: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clerical_collar.

Safety Last! (1923)

Trivia: Harold Lloyd was missing two fingers from when a prop went off that he was holding from a previous film a few years earlier on his right hand. He wore a prosthetic glove. If you look close enough, the differences in his hands, especially hanging from the infamous clock scene.

Trivia: When the bride has the sword through one of the '88's", and is somewhat "dancing" with him, turning in circles, whilst the others are moving out of her way - the music being played is the same music from the movie "Gator" with Burt Reynolds, during the climatic scene at the end at the motel.

Grindhouse (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Zoe Bell is riding the hood for "Ship's Mast" - and is hit from behind by Mike a couple of times - she's on her back hanging onto the belt, and then the next shot she is facing the road head first, then on her back again.

Three's Company (1977)

Forget Me Not - S8-E18

Revealing mistake: At the end where Janet and Jack are in the bathroom (off camera, as he is confessing why he took the car), - you can plainly see that the door to the bathroom is a breakaway door compared to the other episodes, - and even in that particular episode. It's changed in the middle of the episode.

Nez: Whoa. Hey. The bitch stick? Are you kidding me?
Brumley: What, I'm just trying to make the shot.

Brum: Okay.

Hard Target (1993)

Continuity mistake: When Fouchon is playing the piano intensely, and they show a close up of his hands, the right hand has a black bracelet on it showing. They show his hands a few seconds later, and it has disappeared. When he finishes playing and moves to the couch, it has reappeared.

Red Eye (2005)

Continuity mistake: When Jackson and Lisa are fighting in the bathroom and he begins to wipe off the soap from the mirror, it's somewhat foamy. The camera zooms in on Jackson talking to Lisa. When the camera pulls back, the soap is mostly gone, with very little suds to show. I know soap evaporates, but not this quickly. Not to mention, he didn't get every word wiped off, but when the camera pulls back, there is no sign of anything actually written on the mirror.
