Other mistake: After the Mayflower truck crashes into the police cars, the ramp is lowered at the back of the truck and the van quickly escapes down the ramp, but when it cuts to the wide shot of the action the van is not coming from the ramp's direction - it's on the street to the right of the truck and its ramp.

Continuity mistake: When the Mayflower moving truck leaves the lot and picks up the crew there's no license plate on the front bumper when Tommy gets in, but when the truck crosses Broadway suddenly there's a license plate on the bumper, and then it vanishes. Additionally, when the van's stowed away in the truck it doesn't have an antenna on the hood and "256-245" is the van's license plate number, but after the heist there's an antenna and the van's plate number is "C47-618".

Continuity mistake: After Mrs. Longene eggs on Socks to kill her husband for not revealing the safe's combination to save her, it cuts to the first man on Everson's team rappelling without gloves - the gloves are in his back pocket, and in the next shot he's wearing the gloves. Then the next cop to rappel across is not Everson, but in the close-up it's Everson reacting to the rope burns on his hands as if he had just crossed.

Continuity mistake: After Duke gets frustrated that Mr. Longene still hasn't given him the combination to the safe he asks for Socks, and when it cuts to Everson and his team rappelling to another building, as Everson climbs over the railing his shoes have changed to climbing boots and his badge has vanished.

Other mistake: During the heist the Mayflower truck is parked at the building's 91st Street entrance, and the police have blockaded 5th Ave at the corners of E. 90th and 92nd Streets. When the guys try to flee the truck is driven down 91st so as to turn onto 5th Ave, and after the driver's close-up there's an overhead wideshot of 5th Ave and the truck should be coming from 91st, but it's actually coming from further up - towards 92nd Street, with the corner of 91st in front of it, which is impossible since it should have made the turn at 91st.

Revealing mistake: After Duke hears noise coming from the stairwell he locks the doors at the end of the hallway. After Duke shoots Parelli it cuts to the police firing at those locked doors, and when the doorknob blows off we can see that it's only a glued on doorknob, with no hole in the wood door, so it's impossible to have actually locked it.

Visible crew/equipment: After Duke unlocks the padlocked gate, when the Mayflower truck is driven out of the parking lot the reflection of crew members, location lighting, and a reflector screen can be seen on the surface of the truck.

Visible crew/equipment: When the Mayflower truck crashes into the police cars, crew members and the second camera (presumably filming the stunt from the overhead angle) can be seen in the wideshot at the left side of the screen, before the camera pans to the right for a close-up of squad car 351.

Visible crew/equipment: At the start, when the prison psychologist asks, "What is love," the reflection of two crew members with the camera between them, and the window behind them, can be seen on the pictures' glass hanging on the wall.

Other mistake: When the Mayflower truck is on the move picking everyone up for the heist, a mysterious hole appears above the truck's cab, cut out in the letter "o" in "Mayflower" when Pop is picked up, that wasn't there a moment before, and then it vanishes. The same thing occurs after the heist, when the truck crashes into the police cars.

Murderers' Row (1966)

Continuity mistake: When Matt and Suzie get into Suzie's black convertible there's no rear view mirror, but then a mirror appears, disappears, and reappears. Then, when they've switched cars its rear view mirror also plays the vanishing game while they're still being chased.

Toy Story (1995)

Trivia: While Buzz is riding RC chasing after the moving truck, when Scud runs into the intersection causing the car pile-up, we see the building "Virtual Realty" the real estate company that sold Andy's house, and the bowling alley "Luxo Lanes" named after "Luxo, Jr" the first short film produced by Pixar in 1986. In the car pile-up, a blue car's license plate is "RES1536" which is also the Pizza Planet truck's license plate number, and the number's taken from Toy Story‍'‍s film resolution - 1536 x 922, the RES stands for resolution. Also, on the teal car's tire it reads "Tigger Paw" named after Disney's Tigger, and a play on the brand Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires.

Toy Story (1995)

Toy Story mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Woody falls out of the closet wrapped in the string lights he hears Buzz's voice, and in the next shot as Woody sneaks up to Hannah's room we see Sid's open door and doorway, which looks perfectly normal.However, after Woody rescues Buzz from Hannah's tea party they both stop in the hallway, and there's another shot of Sid's open door and doorway, only this time it's not normal to say the least. All six of the latches, bolts, and locks that are normally attached to the inside of Sid's door are now actually kind of floating there in mid-air right beside the doorway, as if there's an invisible door there. Weird that Pixar artists deliberately did this, but it's bizarrely funny to see.

Toy Story (1995)

Continuity mistake: When Buzz watches the TV commercial and realizes that he's really a toy, by the time "Al's Toy Barn" is mentioned and he reads "made in Taiwan" on his arm, one of the soda cans on the floor changes its position and the trash bin with the crumpled paper around it vanishes.

Revealing mistake: When Woody grabs hold of Buzz and uses his "karate chop action" while they walk backwards to the open door, as Woody says, "Sorry guys, dinner's canceled," in the wideshot of all of Sid's toys pay attention to the chair and table at the right side of the screen. What we're supposed to be seeing is the swivel chair with four legs/wheels (and the red toolbox resting on the seat) that's positioned in front of the table's angled wood two-by-four legs. But we don't see that. What we do see is the swivel chair and table all blended together - the seat and legs of the chair are somehow behind both sets of table legs and the chair's backrest is in front of the table, which doesn't make any sense.

Continuity mistake: There's an electrical outlet on the wall below the window (aligned with the window shade's loop) in Sid's room near the Megadork poster, but when Sid throws Woody to the floor and raises the shade (before he scorches Woody's forehead with the magnifying glass), that outlet has vanished.

Toy Story mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In Sid's room, there's a lightbulb hanging over the table (which he turns on when he switches the doll's and pterodactyl's heads), and its electrical cord that hangs beside the lava lamp (filled with toy heads) vanishes and reappears a few times during the scenes there.

Other mistake: There are six various bolts, locks, and latches on Sid's door above and below the doorknob, and some are in their locked positions when the door either opens or closes. For example, after Sid replaces the doll head with the pterodactyl head and calls Hannah, when the door opens we can see the dead bolt and slide latch are both slid out in their locked positions and yet Sid's able to open and shut the door, which is quite impossible.
