Continuity mistake: As David runs from the MP's in the restaurant he jumps down onto the bar from the second floor. The shot of the bar from above and the shot of him landing on the bar differs in regard to the items on the bar and placement of people. As David runs onto the first table from the bar, the food on the plate belonging to the man in the brown suit differs in the next shot as the man ducks to his right. (00:45:40)

Deliberate mistake: As David runs from the MP's in the restaurant, he jumps off the balcony onto the bar below. It is very obvious that it's the stunt double for Michael Pare doing the jump. (00:45:35)

Continuity mistake: At the hospital, as David walks up the corridor clutching his hand, he passes a nurses' station that has a plant at the corner. In the next shot, as he starts to run from the MP's, now there are two books under the plant. (00:43:50)

Continuity mistake: In the Doctor's office at the hospital, David and Allison sit in front of his desk. In the shots facing the Doctor the silver lighter is on the desk. In the shots facing David, the lighter is on the pack of cigarettes. (00:41:05)

Continuity mistake: When Allison has her arm X-rayed at the hospital, she is wearing a star pin on her blue sweater. In the shot preceding this one, as she follows Jimmy's gurney down the corridor with the doctor, since her jacket is open it is plain to see she is not wearing a star pin on her blue sweater. Because of the position of the pin, it should be seen. (00:35:25)

Continuity mistake: David, Jimmy and Allison drive away in her car, and there's a rear view mirror on the windshield. In the next shot of them, there is no rear view mirror. Driving down the highway and the close-up of Allison looking through the mirror at David, there's obviously a rear view mirror again. In the next shot of the three of them, there's no rear view mirror again. When Allison rescues David, inside the car shows a rear view mirror. Then view from outside, as David climbs over the front seat, there's no mirror yet again. (00:28:30)

Continuity mistake: Just before David walks through the door of Jimmy's hospital room, there is a close-up of the monitor with the orange notebook lying on top of it. In the next wide shot the notebook is lying in another position. (00:39:25)

Continuity mistake: Dr. Longstreet takes photographs out of the two top secret folders and places the folders and some photos on the desk to his left. In the next close-up as he looks at the photographs, the folders and some other photos are now rearranged in the center directly in front of him. In the next front shot, the two folders on the desk are to his left again. (00:33:20)

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Longstreet, in 1984, is in his office, in the wide shot the rolodex is near the telephone and papers. In the close-up shot of his desk as he sits down, the rolodex is not there. The globe on the file cabinet also shows different continents in the close up than the wide shot. (00:32:55)

Continuity mistake: Dr. Longstreet, in 1984, is in his office near the black file cabinet. Before he gets the files on the U.S.S. Eldridge, in this shot the plant is right next to a set of files on top of the cabinet. Once he removes the files he wants from the drawer, in this shot the plant is at the wall, further away from the files up on top. (00:32:50)

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, the first side shot of James' desk with papers, books, telephone, watch, etc., differs somewhat from the next front shot in regard to the arrangement of some of these items. (00:01:10)

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, as Dr. James Longstreet sits at his desk, his left white shirt cuff is folded over the cardigan. In the next shot, while his arm did not move, his cuff is half folded, and while his arm rests on the desk not moving, in the next shot his cuff is completely unfolded. He also removes his glasses and in this side shot he does not have his left hand near his head. In the next continuous shot from behind, his left hand is up and his head is leaning on it. (00:01:30)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In Port Royal, during the pirates looting, the sign comes crashing down onto Grapple, and Will says, "Good bye." In the next wide shot, behind Will to his left are a large and small barrel up against the wall, the large one being right in the corner. As a passing pirate hits Will on the head with a candlestick, in this shot both barrels are now further from the corner and closer to the door. (00:35:15)

Audio problem: Aboard Interceptor after the downed mast, Will is trapped below deck, as Elizabeth yells to him, "I can't move it," then Grapple and Mallet grab Elizabeth and she screams, "Will!" In the next shot of Elizabeth, she fights to free herself and we hear her scream, "Will!" again, but she's clenching her teeth and her mouth doesn't form the word Will. At almost the same moment that she screams, "Will!" the second time, Cotton's parrot squawks. (01:29:30)

Continuity mistake: After the downing of the square rigged mast aboard the Interceptor, Jack spots the monkey running across it to the Black Pearl and he starts to follow. As Jack runs toward the mast in this shot, we see the broken end of the mast, rigging and sail that is lying at the Interceptor's rail. In the next shot, on Elizabeth's right the broken mast is seen with its rigging on it. The rigging is lying very differently on the mast in this shot than in the previous shot with Jack. (01:29:25)

Continuity mistake: At the blacksmith shop, there is a wicker basket with rope lying at the top of it located near the steps and the cart. This rope is positioned differently in the basket throughout this scene. Some examples are: in the shot right after Will says, "You threatened Miss Swann," then when Jack tosses Will's red hot sword away, and in the close-up of the cart slipping off the broken bench. (00:23:00 - 00:25:10)

Continuity mistake: There are two shots of an unconscious Mr. Brown and the area around him, when Jack and Will approach him. Just before and after Jack grabs the red hot sword out of Will's hand and tosses it, Mr. Brown is seen behind Jack. In these shots Mr. Brown's placement is different in comparison to the tools above him on the ledge. Also in this shot, the tools on the floor to his right in the earlier shots, are not in the same place either. When Will says, "I practice three hours a day so when I meet a pirate, I can kill it," the actual tools to Mr. Brown's left are different. (00:21:05 - 00:24:20)
