Super Grover

Continuity mistake: The cart with the TV changes its position in various shots. For example, in the close-up of Marge's legs lifting off the ground and when Marge floats out the door in the exterior shot, the cart is aligned with the doorway, then at other times it is at the inner edge of the draperies or in between.

Continuity mistake: The large hutch behind Vernon actually moves over to the left, closer to the lamp, during the dinner with Marge. At the start of the dinner scene, the chair beside the hutch, behind Vernon, is at least two feet away from the small table, which holds the lamp. As Marge starts to expand, the chair is right beside the table. (00:02:40 - 00:04:25)

Mulan (1998)

Mulan mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The wagon, which is full of explosives, is on fire, so Mulan cuts Kahn (the horse) free with her sword and jumps onto Khan. She starts to ride away, while she holds the reins in her left hand and the sword with her right hand, up in the air. The wagon explodes and in the next shot, she still holds the reins in her left hand, though the sword, still in midair in her right hand, is now actually in its sheath, which is always attached to the left side of her belt. Some arrows are missing on the ground as well. (00:53:45)

Continuity mistake: As Harry quickly flies off on his Firebolt, in the wide shot when he rounds the fountain, Percy, Ron and Hermione stand in front of Fred, George and Neville. However, in the next back shot Fred, George and Neville stand in front of Percy. (02:09:20)

Continuity mistake: After saying goodbye to Harry, Sirius climbs onto Buckbeak and Hermione hands the chain to Sirius. In the next shot Sirius holds the chain differently. (02:04:15)

Continuity mistake: After Harry arrives at the Leaky Cauldron, Tom brings him to meet with Fudge. When Tom leads Harry to the chair in the wide shot, it is at a diagonal, but in the next close-up it faces the table head on. It changes in following shots as well. (This has nothing to do with the shape of the chair's arms.) (00:13:10)

Visible crew/equipment: When Harry and Hermione are at Hagrid's to rescue Buckbeak, Harry walks toward the hippogriff and bows. In the next shot, when his head is down low, look directly in between the right edge of the screen and the wood post, above the pumpkins. A pair of black pants quickly pass to the left; it's certainly not one of the crows, unless it grew human legs. (Only visible in widescreen.) (01:53:00)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban mistake picture Video

Continuity mistake: In the hospital wing, when Hermione says, "Sorry Ron, but seeing as you can't walk," the camera pans around her and Harry. Before she turns the timeturner, the bed that Harry was lying in is visible and the blankets which were folded neatly in the previous shots are now off and very messy, and the positions of the tall blue screen and chair near the bed are also completely different. Later, when they return, the bed is perfectly neat and the chair is pushed back again. (01:47:10)

Continuity mistake: In the DADA class, when Lupin puts the needle on the horn gramophone disc to start the music, the position of his hand and the needle in the close-up differs greatly than in previous and following shots. Throughout the scene the gramophone and its horn's position differ in consecutive shots as well. (00:40:30)

Continuity mistake: After Neville's Snape/Gran Boggart, Lupin says, "Wonderful...to the back Neville. Everyone form a line." In the next two shots, first Neville heads to the back, then Malfoy shoves Neville to the side and Crabbe pushes the line of kids forward. Yet in the next shot from the front of the line, Neville already stands at the back of the line and then in the next shot, Neville walks towards the back of the line, where more kids are gathered now. (00:42:35)

Revealing mistake: In the first overhead shot as the Dementors swoop down towards Sirius and Harry, Sirius lies in a particular position. During the Dementor attack his clothes move, then after Harry's Patronus repels the Dementors, Sirius breathes again and he now lies flat. After Harry collapses, in the last overhead shot, Sirius and his clothes lie in precisely the same position as the first overhead shot. His position differs later, in the repeat timeline as well. (01:42:50 - 01:45:20)

Continuity mistake: When Aunt Marge's chair starts to float up, in the close-up of her legs, her feet are at least a foot off the ground and the chair even more. However, after her necklace pops, Vernon yells, "Down boy!" at Ripper, she lets go of the table and in the next wide shot, her feet are still well under the table and the chair is still touching the floor - this shot is spliced from the earlier shot, just after Ripper first bites Vernon's foot! (00:04:50)

Other mistake: While Hermione and Ron watch, cloaked Harry starts up with Malfoy and his two friends as they all stand in the snow. Most noticeable in the wide shot, when Harry spins the Slytherin boy, although the boy's feet visibly disturb the snow, Harry's feet do not make a mark - no footprints whatsoever. (01:02:30)

Continuity mistake: Harry moves closer to Snape at the Shrieking Shack, as he points his wand at the professor. In the first two shots Snape stands closer to the door, yet in the close-up as the spell hits he is farther from the doorway, so he can easily fly backwards for the stunt. (01:34:00)

Revealing mistake: At the Shrieking Shack, when Harry shouts, "Expelliarmus!" there is a nice close-up of Snape and it is obviously not Alan Rickman flying backwards onto the bed. (01:34:00)

Other mistake: After receiving the new Firebolt Harry runs outside to use it. In the close-up as he takes off and in the next wide shot many of the students' eyes are not in sync with Harry's flight. (02:09:15)

Continuity mistake: At the start of Hagrid's lesson, he coughs and says, "Ta-daa!!" for all to see Buckbeak. In the next wide shot Goyle stands at the back and his hood and robe lie flat. In the next close-up Goyle's hood is positioned completely differently, then in the next wide shot it's flat again. (00:33:20)

Continuity mistake: When Vernon holds Marge's hands as she floats up, in the shot just before she yells, "Don't you dare!" Dudley stands behind Petunia with the napkin hanging from his collar. After she floats away screaming, in the close-up of Dudley the napkin stains differ and it now has a glob of white cream which he promptly wipes off and eats. (00:05:40)

Continuity mistake: When the stone hits Harry, the very first time, in the shot inside Hagrid's, he yells, "Ow!" and as he turns the blue cup touches the wood tray. In the next exterior shot, the blue cup is closer to the birdcage. (01:24:55)

Revealing mistake: While he sits by the Whomping Willow, Ron shouts, "Harry, Hermione, run! It's the Grim!" When Sirius the dog runs toward them, in the shot facing Harry and Hermione, their eyes are not in sync with the dog before it leaps. (01:28:00)
