Blind Date (1987)

Continuity mistake: When Walter is in the music store, a man puts on his glasses and walks past him, then in the next close-up that man is at the counter, puts on his glasses and walks past again. Other people around Walter, in both shots, differ in their actions too. (01:11:20)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: John and Michael dash out of the cave with the crocodile and run. After John yells, "Happy thoughts!" the exact same shot is seen twice as they run together. Then when John and Michael step into the traps, each are snared only on their right leg. However, in the next shot both of their legs are trapped as they hang upside down. (00:40:20)

Peter Pan (2003)

Continuity mistake: Smee and another pirate are at the Black castle and the pirate wears a buckled strap across his chest. The position of this strap changes in different shots. When Hook shoots him, the huge bullet hole does not appear in the wide shot, only the close-up. (00:46:10)

Peter Pan (2003)

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. However in the shots facing Peter, while the boy blocks Hook's hook with his sword, Peter's left hand does not hold the base of Hook's hook. (01:26:50)

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)

Peter Pan (2003)

Deliberate mistake: Hook tells Peter, "She'd rather grow up than stay with you," and we see that this next wide shot is flipped, note the hook on the left hand. Also, as Hook smacks Peter across his face and sends Peter hurling into the rigging with a bleeding forehead, dramatic as that is Hook doesn't even make contact with Peter in the shot. (01:26:25)

Peter Pan (2003)

Revealing mistake: Jason Isaac's stunt double is easily seen in quite a few shots, for example when Hook duels with Peter on the Jolly Roger. His hairline is lower and the shape of his beard is different. (01:32:25)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban mistake picture Video

Continuity mistake: As the Knight Bus begins to appear, Harry falls back onto the ground, leans on his arms and in the front shot his sweatshirt is off his right shoulder, but in the next side shot, as he still leans on his arms, both sides of his jacket are properly on. (00:07:55)

Continuity mistake: While everyone is in the Dursley's dining room, before and after Aunt Marge's inflation, the plates, cutlery, food, etc., on the table and kitchen counters change positions in subsequent shots, depending on the camera angle, not due to anyone touching them. (00:02:40)

Continuity mistake: As Legolas climbs up, swings from and stands on the Mûmak, the shirt that is worn under his green topcoat is seen at the slits on his sides in most shots. The color of that shirt at the slits varies between the normal silvery color as the rest of his shirt in some shots and an odd brown/green color in other shots. (01:12:40)
