Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Wendy, John and Michael return home, in the wide shot as they look around the two swords in the toy chest, at the foot of Michael's bed, are visible. When they go to their beds Wendy places her Neverland sword into the toy chest, but the two originals' positions differ - the boys' Neverland swords are visible on their beds. When Aunt Millicent walks in with the Lost Boys, as the Darlings hug, the toy chest is visible and the swords are gone. (01:35:10)

Peter Pan (2003)

Peter Pan (2003)

Revealing mistake: Peter's height changes drastically during the course of the film and is most noticeable during scenes with Wendy. For example, when Peter says, "Leave Hook to me," at the Black Castle they are face to face and Peter is just a bit taller than Wendy. Then, just a few hours later, after Peter and Wendy dance they talk about feelings and Peter is now considerably taller than Wendy. Jeremy Sumpter had quite a growth spurt during production. (00:44:10 - 00:56:20)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: As Wendy, John and Michael float at the ceiling, Wendy asks, "Oh! What about mother?" and the hat boxes are visible on the wardrobe, with the square on the left. Yet, when they all exclaim, "Pirates!" the round hat box is now on the left. (00:22:35)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: In the nursery, John shouts, "I've got it! I've got it!" then runs to his bed and visible on the left are clothes that hang from the tri-fold screen which stands near John's bed. In the close-up of John's feet, as he runs on his bed to try and fly, one set of clothes from the previous shot is gone. When he lands on the floor, there is yet another set of clothes that hang under the outfit with the white ruffle as well and then as John flies out the window still another set appears. (00:21:30)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: There are two dolls perched on either side of Wendy's headboard in the nursery. When Tink grabs hold of Wendy's hair, pulls her back towards the bed and slams her into the footboard, the doll on the left falls, yet the doll is back up on the headboard in the following shots. While Peter speaks with Wendy throughout these shots the positions of both of the dolls change. (00:19:55)

Peter Pan (2003)

Peter Pan mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Aboard the Jolly Roger, in the very next shot after Smee jumps overboard, Peter twirls his sword in mid-air and catches the hilt. This is not the same sword he uses in the previous or following shots. This sword doesn't have the gold hand guard, so as to be able to catch it easily. The hilt on Peter's sword is in the shape of a leaf and the hand guard is the leaf stem. (01:24:50)

Labyrinth (1986)

Labyrinth mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Sarah angrily goes into Toby's nursery to retrieve Lancelot, as she screams, "I hate you!" to Toby, who is in the crib, the crib's legs are visible and there are NO casters (wheels) attached to the legs. However, in the rest of the shots, whenever visible, there are ball bearing casters on the legs of the crib. (00:06:50)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: After Wendy admits to being Red Handed Jill, Peter holds his blade to Wendy's throat. In the first close-up Peter grasps the hilt so the sharp curved edge of the blade points towards the knuckles of his fingers. In the second close-up his hand grasps the hilt so that the sharp edge points towards the palm of his hand. (This has nothing to do with how his wrist is turned.) (01:05:30)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: Peter flies in and tells everyone of the new pirate Red Handed Jill and as he says, "She's just a storyteller," the small piece of watermelon, that looks as if it's been hacked already, is visible on the table. Then when he says, "I shall run her through!" he slams his blade into a large wedge of watermelon - its shape is very different (before the blade hits it of course). Other food on the table differs in consecutive shots within this scene as well. (01:04:30)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: Hook sneaks into Peter's hideout while Peter sleeps in order to kill him. In the first close-up Hook tries to reach Peter, who's lying down, as Peter mumbles in his sleep. In Peter's second close-up he is in a completely different position as the poison drops into the water. As he wakes with a start in his third close-up, Peter is lying in the same position as the first close-up. (01:10:45)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: After Wendy sees John, Michael and the Lost Boys tied up she gasps in a wide shot, in which the pirates are spread out all around. A pirate puts a gag at her mouth and in the next close-up three pirates gather just behind the kneeling boys as Hook walks by to talk to Wendy with other pirates gathered round. In the next wide shot there are no pirates directly behind the boys and everyone is positioned the same way as the previous wide shot, those three specific pirates are in three different areas. Other pirates are in completely different spots as well between the close-up and following wide shot. (01:10:00)

Peter Pan (2003)

Deliberate mistake: After Hook orders the crew into the rigging, Peter lands on deck holding Wendy. There is a close-up of Hook's face as he walks back down the stairs, then the next wide shot of Cookson, the very tall pirate up in the rigging, is flipped. (The shot before he points the gun.)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Wendy walks the plank she stands at the edge and as the camera faces her the brilliant sunlight from behind her highlights the plank and casts a long bright shadow in front of her, contrary to the dark wood plank in the overhead shots. (01:20:10)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: Aboard the Jolly Roger, when Wendy walks the plank in the close-ups the knot of the blindfold around her eyes is at the right side of her head, yet, in the overhead shots the knot is at the back of her head. (01:20:10)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: After Wendy sews the shadow onto Peter the light in the nursery brightens. The items in the room cast their own shadows, for example, the clock and light fixture over Michael's beds. These shadows change drastically in the following shots, until they fly off to Neverland. (00:16:45)

Peter Pan (2003)

Revealing mistake: When Peter flies into the nursery searching for his shadow, he follows Tink into the hallway. The red window draperies fit the width of the hall in this and other shots. However, in the close-up after Peter opens the drawer, he grabs his shadow as it flies up and the draperies are visible. In this shot, not only are the draperies much narrower, but the hallway ceiling is now much wider to allow the shadow to stretch while trying to get away. (00:13:10)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: When Tink flies into the nursery and zips around searching for Peter's shadow she flies into Nana's house and in this shot Michael's bed is more than a foot away from the nightstand. In the next overhead shot Michael's bed is much closer to the nightstand. Michael's blanket differs considerably as well. (00:12:25)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: In the nursery, behind Michael's and John's beds there are many small soldiers and horses perched on the chair rail (decorative molding). The position/amount of these soldiers and horses differ significantly in consecutive shots within the scene before they leave for Neverland and also within the scene when they eventually return. (00:12:25 - 01:35:25)
