Continuity mistake: In Edoras, after Gandalf lifts Pippin onto Shadowfax, as Gandalf says, "Three days ride..." Pippin's left hand is seen and the fingers are very short and very chunky - NOT because his fingers are clasped - it is obviously the scale double's hand in this specific shot. Then when Merry hands Pippin the pouch of Longbottom leaf, Pippin's left hand is seen again and Billy Boyd's hand and fingers are very thin and lanky. The two hands seen in these two consecutive shots quite obviously do not look anything alike. (00:25:35)

Continuity mistake: When Shadowfax breaks down the door to the Tomb of the Stewards, in the shot facing Gandalf he grabs the guard's spear and points the blunt end towards Denethor on the pyre as Shadowfax rides forward. In the next shot from behind, never altering his tight grip, now the tip of the spear is pointed at Denethor as he charges forward. (02:02:10)

Continuity mistake: At Minas Tirith, while speaking with Gandalf, Pippin examines the Gondorian sword as the rest of his garments lie in front of him on the bed. The first shot faces him as does the third shot, but the middle shot is over his shoulder. The gloves' position differs in that middle shot. (00:37:15)

Continuity mistake: When Gandalf and Pippin reach Minas Tirith, Gandalf's cloak is fairly clean. As they ride up through all of the gates of Minas Tirith, the bottom of Gandalf's white cloak is filthy, yet when they reach the top Gandalf's cloak is much cleaner again. During their ride glimpses of the stirrups are visible. (00:32:00 - 00:33:00)

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Smeagol kills Deagol, Smeagol opens up Deagol's fist to claim the Ring. In the first shot, Smeagol leans over Deagol, then Smeagol's right hand holds Deagol's wrist and Smeagol's left hand opens Deagol's fingers. Yet in the close-up, now Smeagol's left hand hold's Deagol's wrist and Smeagol's right hand opens Deagol's fingers to reveal the Ring. (00:04:20)

Blind Date (1987)

Revealing mistake: When David drives through the outer wall of the bakery products store, in the side shot the wall first bends, then it breaks as the car goes through. Also, the next back shot is a repetitive action, although the window breaks quite differently in both shots. (00:50:45)

Blind Date (1987)

Revealing mistake: David drives through the paint store window and the interior shot shows many exploding paint cans, among them exploding blue paint cans. In the next exterior shot, cans are falling directly in front of the car, but are not exploding paint as in the first shot. More importantly, the yellow and blue paint cans that have been stored overhead, fall from above and have no lids, thus spilling paint as it falls down towards the car. Obviously done for the effect of a greater paint mess. (00:37:10)

Blind Date (1987)

Continuity mistake: As David drives through the pet shop window, in the wide shot the part of the window with the painting of the pelican stays intact and the frame of the window pane is on top of the car. However in the close-up, there is no glass still attached and the frame is not on top of the car. (00:35:15)

Blind Date (1987)

Continuity mistake: At the restaurant, after the waiter pours the champagne into the flutes, without touching her glass Nadia walks away from the table. When she returns, in the front shot her flute is in the same position and has the same amount of champagne, but in the next shot from behind as she sits, her flute is almost empty and moved over next to the menus.

Shampoo (1975)

Deliberate mistake: As George is speeding after Jackie on his motorcycle, in some of the shots as he rides past the camera it's apparent that it is not Warren Beatty in these shots but a stunt double, unlike other shots where it is Warren on the motorcycle. (01:42:20)

Audio problem: When the cleaners pull up in front of Jackie's home, we hear the audio of the two dogs barking and yelping, but the dogs are in full view and they are both lying down quietly, not moving at all. (01:41:40)

Continuity mistake: George surprises Jackie, who's in the kitchen, and when she turns around the colander and dish inside are leaning towards the window and there are two wooden spoons on the counter. Yet in the next shot of her, the colander and dish lean towards the camera and the two smaller wooden spoons are now in the crock in the corner. (01:40:55)

Shampoo (1975)

Continuity mistake: As George walks in and finds Lester sitting on his couch, the TV is seen close to the chair and the antenna are positioned a certain way on top. When Lester raises the volume, the TV is closer to the fireplace and the antenna are positioned differently. However when Lester goes to the door to leave the TV and antenna's position are the same as in the first shot. (01:33:20 - 01:36:50)

Shampoo (1975)

Continuity mistake: George's collar on his leather jacket is sometimes up, down or somewhere in between, in successive shots within a particular scene, depending on the camera angle. Additionally, his long neck scarf changes position numerous times, in shots following one another within the same scene too. One example is in the salon with Felicia and Jill. (00:18:20)

Shampoo (1975)

Continuity mistake: At George's house, Lester comes back from the kitchen and tosses the towel onto the chair. In some shots of the chair, the towel isn't even there, and in the front shots of Lester sitting in that chair the towel keeps changing position. (01:36:15)
