Revealing mistake: While Jane drives the minivan, after John tells her that he knew he saw her "father" on Fantasy Island, there's a closeup of the rearview mirror's reflection just as Jane sees the two BMWs still chasing them, but the view we see within the mirror's reflection is not backwards.

Continuity mistake: After John fakes his death in the falling elevator, in the wideshots he reaches up with his left hand to disconnect his video feed, but in the closeup it's his right hand disconnecting it.

Continuity mistake: While John's standing at the minivan's open rear door hitting the guy with the golf club, we can see that the van's rear-view mirror has been removed for this shot, but it's back in its place in following shots.

Continuity mistake: While the Smiths are hiding out in the small shed in Home Made, at one point Jane's glasses are folded and hanging from her neckline with the nose guards facing her right, but in the next shot the glasses are facing her left, then it's back to her right, and finally her left again.

Continuity mistake: When John comes home to the lovely pot roast dinner he places his martini glass on the table, and when Jane takes the skewered olives in the closeup there are three, but in the wideshot there are only two olives on the pick as Jane puts it in her mouth.

Continuity mistake: When Jane opens the minivan's hatch the driver's side window is already shattered, before it actually happens.

Continuity mistake: After John hits the guy with the golf club he pulls the grenade pin, and when John dives back into the minivan he knocks down the rod holding the dry cleaning hangers, but then the rod is back up again without the hangers, and when the last two BMWs are taken out, the dry cleaning hangers are back up as well.

Peter Pan (1953)

Continuity mistake: When Peter and the Darling children land on the minute hand of Big Ben's clockface, in the first shot it's 8:15, note the hour hand is at the eight directly opposite the number two, but a few shots later when they fly off towards the sky note the hour hand is directly opposite the number one, which means it's 7:15.

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Indy and Vogel are fighting atop the tank we see the soles of Vogel's boots and there is a red hexagon dot under each heel, but while Indy is hanging off the tank's side mount gun the soles of Vogel's boots are different.

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: After Indy and Henry have escaped from Castle Brunwald, Indy jumps into one of the boats, pulls the motor starter cord and jumps back out, then just as he bends over to release the boat from the piling, right between Indy's legs the black covered arm of a hidden crewmember appears from under the tarp taking hold of the throttle, steering the boat away from the pier.

Revealing mistake: When Sallah rides up to the tank to help, just as Indy shouts, "Get Dad!" in the closeup and wideshot of Henry we can see that he's actually lying on protective support, and not lying directly on the moving tank treads. (01:35:40)

Continuity mistake: When Sallah rides up to the tank to rescue Henry we see Indy toss the whip over the side of the tank, but after the tank falls over the cliff, when Indy climbs back up then walks over to stand between Henry and Sallah the whip is coiled and back in its place, hanging from his belt. Even Indy can't do that. (01:36:00 - 01:37:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When Indy tries to reach the Grail his father convinces him to "Let it go" and Henry pulls his son to safety, then in the next wideshot of Indy, Henry, Sallah, and Marcus a crewmember wearing a short sleeved, white shirt and blue pants can be seen at the right side of the screen, just before it cuts to Henry's closeup. This crewmember can be seen again after the closeup of the knight. (01:57:45)

Continuity mistake: While Henry and Marcus are being held inside the tank, Indiana rides in circles and baits the tank to ram into one of the cars. In a following shot when we see Vogel walking toward the window inside the tank it's a flipped shot, note everything is backwards. Then two shots later, when Vogel shouts "quick" in German it's another flipped shot, and about five shots after that again flipped. (01:29:30)

Visible crew/equipment: When Young Indy is trapped in the train car with the lion, he tosses up the whip to Fedora, and as he's being pulled up in the interior shot, he's wearing a stunt apparatus around his waist above his beaded belt. [The stunt double is also wearing a glove on his right hand holding what looks like skewered meat, to presumably draw the trained lion, but that's a lot harder to see without pausing]. (00:08:35)

Visible crew/equipment: After Young Indy locks the two treasure hunters in the reptile train car he pulls a snake out of his shirt, and just as the third young treasure hunter tackles Indy we can see a crewmember's arm and equipment at the left side of the screen, before it cuts to the long shot. (00:07:00)

Other mistake: After Young Indy runs out of the cave with the Cross of Coronado, when he whistles for his horse and jumps down, note the horse's facial marking and leg marking. When Indy mounts the horse it's a different horse, note its markings, and as he rides toward the circus train the horse has changed again. (00:04:55)

Dexter (2006)

The Angel of Death - S6-E5

Other mistake: While Dexter's searching for info on Travis Marshall on his laptop, he opens the DMV Records window with an image of Marshall's driver license, and in the closeup at the bottom of the license it reads "Operation of a motor vehicle constitutes consent to any sobiety test required by law," with the word "sobriety" missing the letter "r." Additionally, under the image of the license it reads "Issued: 10-12-2006", but on the actual license image it reads, "DOB: 11-24-1977, Issued: 09-23-1990, Expires: 09-23-2012." So that means Marshall was not even 13 yrs old when he got his license, and the license won't expire for 22 years. Also, when Brother Sam knocks on the door Dexter clicks back onto the MOA website, and if you care to pause the screen note the word "Exibit" is missing the letter "h." (00:18:50)

Homeland (2011)

Crossfire - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: After David listens to the recording that Carrie made in order to leverage the FBI, in the closeup facing David as he says, "For what? The hope that this Imam will give you information that you don't even know he has," David's right hand is empty as he holds it up, but it cuts to the shot facing Carrie and David's hand is still up though now he's holding his pen.
