Continuity mistake: When Harry goes to the table to clean up Marge's broken glass and when he stands at the counter as Marge blows up, there is a large rug in the kitchen, under the center cart, whose edge reaches the counter stools. When Harry storms downstairs with his trunk, Petunia and Dudley stand at the kitchen doorway and the rug is gone - it would be visible if it was on floor. (Likewise, the rug was gone when Marge and Ripper arrived, but it could be presumed that the rug was laid out before their meal.) (00:03:50 - 00:06:40)

Trivia: Stan Ellsworth, who briefly plays big, burly Mr. Riley, has an interesting personal history that is hardly known. After high school, he was in the US Marine Corp for eight years, and was honorably discharged with the rank of First Sergeant. Then after receiving a BA in history, Stan played for the NFL's Detroit Lions and the Seattle Seahawks, but after an injury he became a coach and defensive coordinator. Some years later Stan went back to school and received a PhD in Sports Psychology and a Masters degree in Organizational Communication. Doctor Stan Ellsworth (remember the PhD), has also taught history to Highland High School students in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Continuity mistake: After Troy has the chat with Chad on the basketball court, when they're joined by Coach Bolton there is a close-up of Chad and Troy, whose graduation gowns/sashes are neat and tidy. Then after a shot of the coach as he tells them to get back to the stage, in the teenagers' next close-up their graduation gowns/sashes are all mussed up and disheveled.

Continuity mistake: During the rehearsal of "Just Wanna Be With You", Jimmie leaves the cup of paint and paintbrush beside the railing. Not only does the cup of paint move (note rail post and pickets) in following shots, but after Gabriella dabs paint on Troy, the paint cup just vanishes, as well as the paintbrush Gabriella dropped.

Continuity mistake: During rehearsal, just after Ryan cracks up at the sight of Chad in the clown suit, as Taylor pulls Chad away Gabrielle walks to the center of the 'balcony', with her back to Troy. Next shot, however, Gabrielle is back near the corner or the railing facing Troy, but next shot she's farther away again. (00:51:50)

Continuity mistake: When John brings Marley home the first time while Jen's away, the bag of Puppy Chow kibble falls. The bag's position on the floor (note tiles), the amount of kibble and John's hands all change between shots. The fallen kibble also changes between shots as the puppy lies on the floor devouring it.

Marley & Me (2008)

Continuity mistake: When the dog-sitter pulls up in front of the Grogan's house in the exterior shot, the curtains at the window beside the stairs are pulled nearly closed, with only a narrow gap between. Next interior shot, as Marley barks at the window the curtains are pulled more apart, but when Marley pulls Debby outside as the Grogans leave, the curtains are as they were in the first exterior shot.

Marley & Me (2008)

Continuity mistake: When John and Sebastian step out of the elevator discussing Jen, the spare room, step seven, etc, John's bag strap hangs across his chest with the bag at his right, in the shots facing them once they reach the newsroom, but in shots from behind John's bag hangs straight down on his shoulder with the bag to his left.

Marley & Me (2008)

Continuity mistake: In the kitchen, when Jen talks about John's first article in the Sun-Sentinel, John lifts the orange juice container to pour into a glass and its orange lid is on the counter, but next shot the lid is on the container and he has to remove it. (00:07:10)

The Transporter (2002)

Revealing mistake: On the transport trailer, Frank leans out his car window and dramatically fires at the ramp's tall lever control in a close-up, located at the rear of the transport over the tires. The problem is that the trailer has no such lever control, as seen in the previous shot before it drives under the bridge overpass. (00:07:55)

The Transporter (2002)

Revealing mistake: Before Frank drives off the overpass onto the transport trailer, in the close-up there is sand placed at the top of the back tire (but the rest of the tire is clean), which creates the effect of the dust cloud as the back tire begins to spin. (00:07:45)
