Charmed (1998)

Malice in Wonderland - S8-E2

New this week Other mistake: After Piper tells Phoebe to get to know Dex well and fast because it may be the one sign Phoebe can't ignore, Piper ends the family meeting. In the following overhead shot as Piper walks out we can see her reflection in the wall mirror and it shows her long dark brown hair, but the problem is the reflection should be showing the "Jenny Bennett" golden blonde hair instead.

The Final Battle: Part 1 - S6-E22

Other mistake: While Killian and David are talking at the base of the beanstalk, in the wideshots we can see the protective black boot worn by Colin O'Donoghue, the actor playing Killian, who broke his left foot during filming of the previous musical episode. (00:20:30)

The Goonies (1985)

Other mistake: After the kids find Chester Copperpot's skeleton, Mikey picks up Copperpot's book and finds the Gehrig baseball card inside. When Mikey turns the card over it's the 1973 Topps Lou Gehrig All-Time Grand Slam Leader #472 (which has nine players' grand slam stats listed on the back of the card, that includes Hank Aaron who started playing MLB in 1954). The problem is Copperpot was reported as missing in 1935, but this specific Topps baseball card (now well known) was issued in 1973, nearly 40 years after Copperpot's death via the pirate booby trap.

Gilmore Girls (2000)

Love and War and Snow - S1-E8

Other mistake: After Lane goes home, when Rory watches her mom talking to Max note the short window over the kitchen sink behind Rory (not the tall window on the same wall). In the next shot, from outside that short window, we see Rory pull the photo strip out of her pocket then proceed to walk to that window and stand directly in front of it. The problem is there should be a sink and cabinets under that window blocking Rory from standing beside the window. (00:43:05)

Gilmore Girls (2000)

Gilmore Girls mistake picture

Show generally

Other mistake: The Warner Bros. Studio Tour building is quite a distinctive high-rise, and it's located at the corner of Avon and Warner Blvd across the street from the Warner Bros. Studio backlot, which includes the location set of Stars Hollow town square. During the series, in a few episodes such as "Will You Be My Lorelai Gilmore," that high-rise building can be seen from the town square, past Doose's Market, directly behind Sophie's Music store.

Girl Shy (1924)

Other mistake: Throughout the movie, Harold Lloyd's prosthetic glove on his right hand is noticeable in the wideshots when he stretches or holds out his right hand, so in all the closeups showing both of Harold's hands it's the stand-in's hands we are seeing.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown mistake picture

Other mistake: When the kids leave Linus standing alone in the pumpkin patch, Sally decides to rush back to Linus, and when Linus explains that she'll see the Great Pumpkin with her own eyes, Sally's left arm is blue, the same color as her dress, then instantly changes to the normal flesh color within the same shot.

The Simpsons Game mistake picture

Other mistake: Level 5 "Mob Rules" cutscene: After Lisa gives Marge the manual and explains Marge's superpower to her, when Marge shouts, "Okay, let's stop that video game," Lisa's moving head was not properly edited by the layout artists, note that Lisa's head and neck are disconnected from her body, which is a bit creepy looking as she moves her head.

The Simpsons Game mistake picture

Other mistake: Level 10 "Bargain Bin" cutscene: When the spaceship flies over the house all the Simpsons walk out the front door, and in this overhead shot part of the house is missing, note the animation is incomplete behind the roof of the garage.

Wet Hot American Summer mistake picture

Other mistake: Victor and Neil leave in the Rally STX van to take the boys to Moose River. Later, when Beth goes into town the license plate number is '566 241' on her Chevy pickup, but when Victor drops Neil and the boys off, we see their Rally STX has the same license plate number '566 241' as well. (00:30:40 - 00:36:40)

Rock 'n' Roll High School mistake picture

Other mistake: While the school is burning, a few shots after the closeup of Kate and Tom kissing, there's another shot of an explosion and it's a flipped shot, note the writing is backwards on the banner. (01:30:10)

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade mistake picture

Other mistake: While Indy and Henry are aboard the zeppelin Indy tosses Vogel out the lounge window, and when Vogel shouts up to the departing airship, in the next exterior shot we see the zeppelin airborne against a scenic view. Later, when Indy realises the zeppelin is turning around it cuts to another exterior shot of the airship, and the scenic view is identical to the earlier shot, only it's been flipped. The images of the zeppelin facing two different directions were composited onto the same scenic background.

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade mistake picture

Other mistake: After Young Indy runs out of the cave with the Cross of Coronado, when he whistles for his horse and jumps down, note the horse's facial marking and leg marking. When Indy mounts the horse it's a different horse, note its markings, and as he rides toward the circus train the horse has changed again. (00:04:55)

Dexter (2006)

The Angel of Death - S6-E5

Other mistake: While Dexter's searching for info on Travis Marshall on his laptop, he opens the DMV Records window with an image of Marshall's driver license, and in the closeup at the bottom of the license it reads "Operation of a motor vehicle constitutes consent to any sobiety test required by law," with the word "sobriety" missing the letter "r." Additionally, under the image of the license it reads "Issued: 10-12-2006", but on the actual license image it reads, "DOB: 11-24-1977, Issued: 09-23-1990, Expires: 09-23-2012." So that means Marshall was not even 13 yrs old when he got his license, and the license won't expire for 22 years. Also, when Brother Sam knocks on the door Dexter clicks back onto the MOA website, and if you care to pause the screen note the word "Exibit" is missing the letter "h." (00:18:50)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban mistake picture

Other mistake: When Arthur takes Harry aside at the Leaky Cauldron, the moment before Arthur says, "There are some within the Ministry who would strongly discourage me from divulging what I'm about to reveal..." we can see the digital number "300" flash on the stone pillar to the right of the wanted poster. (This occurs only in the fullscreen version, as opposed to the widescreen version where the number "301" flashes underneath the poster, which is noted in another mistake). (00:17:30)

Toy Story (1995)

Toy Story mistake picture

Other mistake: During the scenes in Andy's room, when characters are standing near the window beside Andy's bed, and also on both the interior and exterior sides of the window behind the desk, we can see the same markings/scratches/chipped paint on their white lower sash rails, though the marks on the exterior side of the window behind the desk, are actually opposite from the other marks.

Doctor Who (2005)

Doctor Who mistake picture

The Pilot - S10-E2

Other mistake: After the Doctor tells Bill that Heather's face isn't symmetrical, when he and Bill look into the "puddle" together the Doctor explains that instead of seeing her normal backwards reflection, she's seeing her face "the right way round." The problem occurs in the next shot of the Doctor and Bill seen in the puddle, because the "WOW!" patch on Bill's jacket is properly where it should be, but note everything else is actually backwards. Things such as Bill's color-block top and her denim jacket buttons are on the opposite way. Also note the Doctor's ring has switched hands. Presumably this shot was edited, and the "WOW!" patch was blurred on the left of Bill's jacket then digitally added to the right side, to give the appearance that it's "the right way round" as the Doctor said. (00:20:15)

Other mistake: When ET launches all the bicycles into the air, first there's a closeup of Michael, then in the next closeup of Steve as they climb higher he leans back with his arms outstretched, as if he's balancing himself on his bike, and we see Steve's right hand making a fist pretending to grip his handlebar, though he's not actually gripping anything at all, it's an empty fist. (This shot has nothing to do with CGI disappearing issues).

Other mistake: While ET is pulling the blanket loaded down with small appliances, etc., the TV is playing "Francis Goes to the Races" and when the film's Peter and Frances walk into the stall we hear Frances (the woman, not the mule Francis) say, "Grandpa, what's wrong?" but the subtitles on the DVD (1982 and 2002 versions) read, "Stanford, what's wrong?" and the subtitles on Netflix (1982 version) read, "Francis, what's wrong?" Additionally, when ET pulls the blanket behind the TV, on the TV screen we see Frances join her grandfather and we hear their dialogue, but in the next shot as ET stumbles out from behind the TV very drunk, even though we hear the TV's continued dialogue, what we actually see on the TV screen is a repeat of Frances joining her grandfather again, and then it jumps to the scene of Peter in the stall with Francis.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial mistake picture

Other mistake: In all the shots of ET wearing the white sheet the two eye holes are about a foot apart, so he could see out of the holes properly, but when Michael finds the white sheet ET had been wearing he lifts the material and we see that the two eye holes are only about two inches apart, which makes no sense. (It was Gertie's sheet which had eye holes that close together).
