RV (2006)

Continuity mistake: In the RV, Jamie puts stacks of dishes away in the overhead cabinet - second from right, when Cassie moves Carl off the couch. When Bob makes the sharp right turn, the dishes pour out of the overhead cabinets, but the ones that come out of the second cabinet are not the same dishes that Jamie put away. (00:12:20 - 00:15:00)

RV (2006)

Continuity mistake: After Bob comes home with the RV, when he and Jamie walk into the kitchen there is a butcher block cutting board laden with items, at the edge of the counter. However, when they speak beside that island counter the cutting board is gone. (Even more noticeable on fullscreen DVD.) (00:10:20)

RV (2006)

Continuity mistake: When Bob speaks to his coworkers at his office, Bob says, "Bring jewelry," and his glass is nearly empty, but a couple of shots later, as he still sips his straw, the glass actually has more liquid now. (Difference only visible on fullscreen DVD.) (00:08:45)

RV (2006)

Continuity mistake: After being snubbed by Carl and Cassie, when Bob walks into the kitchen as Jamie speaks to her sister, the chopper jumps to the other side of the butcher block cutting board, and the chair beside the laptop turns by itself, etc. in following shots (00:06:30)

RV (2006)

Continuity mistake: When the Munros pick up Gretchen at her house, many shadows are cast on the lawn. Later, when they drop her off, the shadows are identical - they have not changed a bit. (00:03:20 - 00:05:25)

Trivia: When Hermione shows Harry and Ron the Gryffindor Quidditch trophy with James Potter's name, to its left (viewer's right) the award for 'Special Services' is visible. Seen only on the full screen DVD are the last letters 'dle' at the top of the award - for Tom Riddle. (01:00:35)

Continuity mistake: When Harry raises his hand with the captured Snitch, his back faces the Slytherin and Hufflepuff towers which are opposite each other, with the hoops between them. However, in the next shot he is now facing that side of the pitch, as other Quidditch players appear from that side. (01:23:25)

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Jack takes the heart out of the chest he hurriedly closes its lid, the locks engage, and the key's end remains in the horizontal position when Jack runs off. However, when Pintel and Ragetti grab the chest the key's circular end is now vertical - the key does not turn itself.

Continuity mistake: When Tia Dalma asks, "Would you sail to the ends of the earth to fetch back witty Jack and his precious Pearl?" her lips are only partially covered in black. However, when she says, "Then you will need a captain who knows those waters," her lips are covered entirely in black.

Continuity mistake: Just after Flint leaps over the Weasley twin, in the next shot Flint tosses the ball forward - toward the hoop - with the school to his left (viewer's right) and Ravenclaw, Slytherine, Gryffindor and two staff (black/grey) towers behind him, to his right. However, in the next shot as the ball flies through the hoop (close-up), it is actually the hoop at the other side of the pitch - we see (in order) the Slytherine, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Gryffindor towers to the left of the screen. (01:19:30)

Continuity mistake: When Hermione shows Ron and Harry the Gryffindor Quidditch trophy, in the close-up of James Potter's name, Harry's reflection is visible on the badge. In the reflection, the points of his white shirt collar and a good portion of his tie are seen, whereas, in the shots facing Harry the collar points are tucked into his sweater and only the tie's knot is seen. (01:00:35)

Revealing mistake: Just after Harry gets back on his broom, the Slytherine seeker chases the snitch and he passes towers of (in order) Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherine, Gryffindor and Hufflepuff, on his left (this means Hogwarts is also to his left), when Harry flies up beside him. However, next shot as Harry slams into him, they still fly in the same direction, and the school is now on their right. Mistake with the background plate. (01:22:00)

Continuity mistake: Just after Slytherin scores ten points, Flint and his teammate surround Angelina. When one grabs the quaffle from Angelina, they fly past the second Gryffindor tower – we see the first Gryffindor tower, two staff towers (grey/black), Slytherin tower and the second Gryffindor tower behind them - then Angelina covers her head with her arm. However, in the next shot she actually crashes into the tower that she already flew past.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the hut on the rock, after Harry draws the candles in the dirt, he glances behind him at Dudley's watch. In the next close-up of the watch, as it turns 12:00, the watch is actually on Dudley's wrist (notice his fingers) the opposite way from the previous shot. Note the distinctive design around the watch face. (00:12:35)

Continuity mistake: After Will challenges Jones he is given five dice - one being considerably smaller than the other four. However, when Will looks under his cup during the game, all five dice are of similar size.

Factual error: At the bar in Tortuga, one of the three musicians is seen playing the 'concertina', but it was not invented yet. Sir Charles Wheatstone, an English physicist (b.1802 - d.1875), invented the 'concertina' around the mid 1800's. The 'concertina' is a small musical instrument like an accordion, with bellows and keys.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Pintel, Ragetti and the dog are aboard the row boat, extra rowlocks (wooden posts attached to the gunwale) appear behind Pintel when the dog jumps overboard, and then they disappear when the wave flips them over.

Continuity mistake: When Jack sneaks away on the long boat, during the Kraken attack on the Pearl, there is a close-up of Jack looking back at the land, then picking up and dramatically opening the compass. However, in the previous shot showing the Pearl, the compass is actually seen at the bottom of the shot - already being held open.

Continuity mistake: When Jack knocks the pirate's detachable head off with the coconut, the chest drops with the lock facing the ground and the lid's two hinges facing up. However, when Jack reaches the chest, it is the lock's side actually facing up now, before he turns the chest upright - with the lock facing him.
