Blind Date (1987)

Continuity mistake: The paint on David's clothes differs completely from the initial paint store accident to when he's in the disco and within these shots the paint differs, even if the paint smeared.

Blind Date (1987)

Deliberate mistake: David and Walter start to fight in the bedroom at the home of the party. In the next shot as they have locked onto each other, they crash through the glass doors and as they reach the banister they actually let go of each other, face outward and do a lovely professional stunt double flip. In the next shot, the stunt men crash onto the table and in the last shot it's back to the actors again. (00:55:00)

Continuity mistake: Peter and Hook are face to face as Hook taunts Peter saying, "I'm afraid the window's barred..." In the shots facing Hook, Peter holds the base of Hook's hook with his left hand while his right hand blocks Hook's hook with his sword.

Revealing mistake: Pippin's height reaches the circular carvings on the wall near the front door and behind Gandalf's cot, when he walks towards Gandalf to steal the palantir. However, after Pip's contact with Sauron, the heights of Aragorn, Legolas and Gandalf are now about the same as Pippin's in the previous shots, when standing near the same carvings! When Gandalf pushes Merry out of the way in the wide shot, this short Merry would barely reach the height of the shelf behind Gimli which is way below the carvings. (00:19:45 - 00:21:25)

Continuity mistake: After Arwen's vision, when an Elf escort says, "...we cannot delay.", in the close-up he faces her and his hair is behind his shoulders. In the next wide shot as Arwen begins to leave, the escort now turns to face her, his hair is in front of his shoulders and the neck/shoulder area of his cloak is different than the previous and following close-up. In the next close-up, his hair is behind his shoulders again. (00:28:20)

Continuity mistake: As Gandalf et al. ride toward Isengard, Merry stands up on the stone wall and to his right the sword is leaning upright against the stone. In the second shot of Merry and Pippin, the sword is leaning down, over to the left. Then in the third shot of them, the sword is upright again. (00:10:00)
