Continuity mistake: As Harry holds the Prophecy, when Lucius says, "Don't you want to know the secret to your scar? ...I can show you everything," both he and Bellatrix stand directly in front of Harry and neither are wearing masks. The problem is in the overhead shot, when Harry says, "I've waited 14 years," two mask-wearing Death Eaters are approaching Harry, who's holding the glowing Prophecy orb, but maskless Lucius and Bellatrix are supposed to be standing there already.

Revealing mistake: In the Department of Mysteries, when Lucius removes his mask Bellatrix stands behind him, but her entire body has been digitally blackened. Additionally, there are two distinct shots in which there is a digital shape highlighting Bellatrix's face/upper body that moves as she moves. The first occurs when she remarks, "He knows how to play," then after Lucius begins to say, "Prophecies can only be retrieved," when he continues with the words, "by those about whom" it occurs once again in the close-up.

Continuity mistake: After bandaged Arthur arrives at Grimmauld Place, in the shot facing the twins, Molly hands the twin on the left the gift with blue wrapping and the twin on the right gets the orange wrapping. Next shot facing Arthur, as Molly pulls her hands away from the gifts, each twin actually has the opposite color than the previous shot and it is at this point they switch gifts onscreen. (01:11:35)

Continuity mistake: As Frodo stands by the shore holding the Ring in his hand in the opening wide shot, the oar is seen lying lengthwise in the boat, atop all the gear inside. However, after remembering Gandalf's words Frodo walks towards the boat, but the oar is not lying in the boat as it was in the earlier shot. We see all the gear in the boat, but the large distinctive leaf shape oar is not atop any of the gear as previously seen. We do, however, see the very tip of the handle sticking out the right side of the boat, just as Frodo climbs in. (01:28:35 - 01:29:55)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Harry and Arthur Weasley head toward the sidewalk with the Ministry's phone booth, we see the asphalt they walk on. In the next shot of that street, there is a puddle of water precisely where they both walked puddle-free a second earlier. (00:17:20)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Harry is in Umbridge's office to do lines, there is a framed photo of her beloved Cornelius and a bowl of potpourri at the corner of her desk. In the overhead shot of Harry, as he begins to write, the frame has moved towards the center of the desk. (00:36:35 - 00:37:30)

Audio problem: At the drinking game, after √Čomer says, "No pauses," in the next shot facing Legolas, when √Čomer continues to say the two words, "No spills," his lips are closed. Even as he turns his head, his hair does not obstruct the view of his closed lips. (Extended Edition) (00:19:15)

Continuity mistake: When the four Hobbits run out of the corn field, Pip stops short at the edge and there's a shot of the slope below. Next shot, when Merry and Frodo push up behind Pippin, Sam appears directly behind Merry, to his right, and stands there looking down. Yet, in the next side shot, from far behind, Sam is still running up to the rest of them, as his head is turned looking over his left shoulder. He then ends up on the opposite side from the first shot, to Frodo's left. (00:52:25)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl mistake picture

Revealing mistake: On the way to Isla de Muerta aboard Interceptor, during the storm there is a close-up of Jack's hand holding the compass. There are many other close-ups of Jack's hand in the movie, but in this particular close-up, it is not Johnny Depp's hand holding the compass. Depp's fingers are slim and normal looking, but in this close-up Jack's thumb is stout and has a severely enlarged/deformed metacarpal at the base of the thumb joint (likely arthritis). (01:03:35)

P.S. I Love You (2007)

Deliberate mistake: After the broken suspender clasp smacks Gerry in the face, in the close-up it lands under the dresser, within the wide strip of light reflection. In all other shots the entire area beneath the dresser is in shadow. (00:11:00)

Scary Movie 3 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In Cody's room, when the color drawing is on the bed and when Cindy holds it in front of her, we see it includes the sky, the house/chimney with smoke, the boy, the arrow, etc. In the close-up of the drawing, there are now three large spaceships drawn under the sky, between the house and the boy.

Emergency! (1972)

Saddled - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When DeSoto joins Gage at the kitchen table they discuss Gage's bright idea of rodeos. In all the shots facing DeSoto his hands are clasped together with the coffee cup on the table, but in all the shots facing his partner, he's holding the cup of coffee. The magazine ends up under DeSoto's arms between shots as well.

Emergency! (1972)

Season 2 generally

Revealing mistake: In at least three episodes, which include 'Saddled', 'Peace Pipe' and 'Women', the same corner restaurant/hot dog stand (with a striped orange/white awning and green vinyl bar stools) is featured. That would be fine, if it weren't for the fact that in each episode the street it is located on has a different name and different cross streets. It is obviously a set on the Universal Studios lot.

Helpful - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: En route to the pick-up truck hanging from the freeway on-ramp, there is a flipped shot of Engine 51 and Squad 51 as they drive under the freeway before the camera pans in towards the car. Some giveaways are the reversed '51' on Engine 51 and the reversed 'road construction ahead' sign.

Continuity mistake: When DeSoto starts to crack about what's upsetting him, Gage places a mop beside another mop, up against the door and it falls over. Next shot both mops are upright and in different positions as well.

Dinner Date - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When the paramedics and the rest of the firemen gather round the failed pacemaker patient, their positions change and in DeSoto's close-ups the Captain isn't seen (for the camera angle's sake), although in other shots he's right beside Gage. As an aside, note when Captain Stanley first first gets off the engine and trips in the background.

Women - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: The shaving foam on DeSoto's face changes between the face-on shots and the reflection shots, and in the reflection he shaved from cheek to chin, but in face-on shots only to the neck.

Peace Pipe - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: To send the drug box up to Gage and DeSoto on the scaffolding, Kelly loops the rope and ties a knot, but in the next shot, when Gage pulls it up it's a different kind of knot and loop.
