Firefly (2002)


Trash - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Simon prepares an injection for Jayne, you can see him insert it and draw back a considerable amount of fluid from the medicine vial, but the level of liquid in the vial does not drop.


Deliberate mistake: Gonzo and Rizzo are selling apples in the beginning, including the Red Delicious cultivar. That wasn't invented until the 1880s and the story is set sometime in the first half of the 1800s. Most likely intentional as they are the narrators.

Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)

Factual error: While people around the world are renouncing their wishes, it appears to be daytime everywhere.

Suggested correction: That could very easily be the result of someone's wish.

Trivia: The call sign for the mobile command center is SHIELD 616. Earth-616 is the name for the primary universe in Marvel comics.

Sidekicks (1992)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the fight in the gym, Mr. Horn comes in and stops it. Yet in the previous overhead shot, he is nowhere to be seen. The shots are meant to be directly connected - watch Cellini's hand. In the overhead shot, he starts brushing his hair back. In the close shot, he finishes the motion from the exact point he stopped in the overhead shot.

The Net (1995)

Trivia: While walking the beach, Devlin wraps his handkerchief around Angela's waist. Cary Grant did the same thing in the film "Notorious", where he played a character named Devlin.

Space Camp (1986)

Factual error: When Control realizes that the kids are communicating with Morse code, they get someone to translate. He reads out "Request alternate landing White" in the space of 9 seconds. The lights and sounds from the CXT switch are not going nearly fast enough for him to have gotten all that. (01:32:20)

Four Brothers (2005)

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the shootout where Jack is killed, Bobby dives into the house to escape the gunfire. You can see the solid brick wall shift like cardboard when he hits it. (01:12:05)

General questions

I am trying to remember a film that I think takes place at a summer camp (or at least some place with lot of kids). In it there is a scene where several boys fake a groin injury so the attractive female nurse will touch them.

The Beach (2000)

Chosen answer: A "bog roll" is another term for toilet tissue. The soft just refers to its texture.

Son in Law (1993)

Audio problem: When Horace stops calling the square dance he tells his band that he is going to get some punch. His words do not match his mouth.

Maverick (1994)

Factual error: When the camera focuses in the the clock striking five, we see the clock has patent number "19701". While this patent does apply to a clock, it was not issued until 1900, 25 years after the movie was set.


Continuity mistake: While Riddick is being scanned by the Quasi-Deads, his anger causes the glass jars to break and the liquid to spill. At least seven distinct breaking sounds are heard. But during his escape, the glass jars are intact and there is no black liquid on the ground. (00:42:45 - 00:43:20)


Factual error: Farmer MacReadie tells Phil he knew of a pig that could play Scrabble. However Scrabble was not released until 1948, three years after the war ended.

Once Bitten (1985)

Continuity mistake: During the dance off, Mark's hair changes several times from a tightly sculpted helmet to puffy and back again.

M*A*S*H (1972)

The Wizard (1989)

Plot hole: This is supposedly the first ever gameplay of Super Mario Bros. 3. Yet somehow Haley seems to know things she shouldn't, like the location and purpose of the warp whistle, a brand new item.
