Sharknado mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Fin's in the water with the surfer girl, many of his closeups are flipped - note the Tilos logo on the neck of his wetsuit changes between Fin's left, the correct way, and his right which is backwards.

Continuity mistake: The characteristics of Nova's large, long, raised scar change considerably from when we first see her at Fin's bar, to later in the day when Matt asks her about it while they're in the surplus warehouse, and it's not even noticeable in many shots where we can see her left thigh between her cutoff shorts and knee.

Continuity mistake: At Fin's house, Baz's watch suddenly vanishes from his left wrist when the water rushes into the house, and then it reappears when he runs from the shark and reaches the stairs.

Sharknado (2013)

Continuity mistake: During the school bus rescue Fin rappels down on a rope tied off on the bridge, but the method of how the rope is secured to the bridge keeps changing, and inexplicably there's a pulley with a cable leading from the bridge to somewhere off camera down below.

Continuity mistake: When they're all in the 'movie car', Baz is wearing his leather necklace and bead necklace, but when they get to the flight school the bead necklace vanishes, yet when they all walk into the surplus warehouse that bead necklace is back round his neck, and when they're outside it's gone again.

Continuity mistake: During the scene at the start, the fishing boat engaged in shark finning changes to an entirely different vessel in some shots - note the sails, helm, etc.

Other mistake: The Hollywood Sign has 9 letters - "HOLLYWOOD." When the Hollywood letters are flying through the air toward Fin and the others, there are at least 8 letters in the sky, but when Nova, Fin and the others are driving away from the bridge we can see "L, Y, and O" still up on Mount Lee, which means that only 6 letters should have been in the air earlier.

Sharknado (2013)

Deliberate mistake: When a shark lands in front of TCL Chinese Theater (Grauman's), it leaves a shark shaped indentation on the ground right above the square concrete block with Steven Spielberg's signature, handprints and shoeprints. Fun homage to the 'Jaws' director. But in fact the actual concrete block, dated 5-16-84, is rectangle and shared by both Spielberg and George Lucas, and it's also not located at the center of the forecourt in front of the doorway.

Revealing mistake: When Fin decides to help the kids on the bus and says, "Water's rising, I'm gonna go up to the bridge and rappel down," two shots later the camera zooms in on Fin's car up on the bridge, but the problem is that this shot is shown in reverse - all the vehicles in both lanes are going backwards.

Continuity mistake: At Fin's house, at the bottom of the stairs there's a table and a ceramic lamp at the corner of the walls, and when Collin shouts for Fin's help he's standing at that corner and the lamp has been knocked over under the water, but after Collin's demise the lamp is upright and back in place.

Continuity mistake: At the flight school, when Matt, Fin, and the others are hiding from the high winds, one of the magazine pictures is pulled off the wall beside the doorway, but when they all exit after the wind dies down that picture is back up on the wall.

Continuity mistake: After George buys it, while the others are driving to April and Claudia there's a piece of plastic stuck to one of the wiper blades as it swishes back and forth, which keeps vanishing and reappearing depending on the angle of the shot.

Deliberate mistake: April wears a watch and bracelet on her left wrist, but after Fin is swallowed by the shark, when April puts her hands on her head in the closeup it's a flipped shot - note the watch and bracelet are on her right wrist.

Deliberate mistake: When Baz is driving the 'movie car' the vehicle does not have hubcaps, but in the closeups of the tires there are hubcaps, and the tires change, plus there's tape covering the brand name at the center of the hubcap.

Continuity mistake: When Fin drives the vehicle to blow up the last tornado he's wearing his watch, but after he presses the nitrous button as he jumps out and lands his watch has suddenly vanished. Then when Fin runs back to his family shouting, "Get out of there," he's watch-less, but after pushing Claudia out of the way his watch is back on his wrist.

Continuity mistake: The style of the chainsaw that Fin uses at the end changes between shots, in the shot from the perspective of inside the shark's mouth - note the second black handle. (Both chainsaws can be seen on the table earlier, in the scene at the surplus warehouse).

Continuity mistake: Once April and Claudia are in Fin's car, when Fin says, "My luck, sharks," it's raining and the wipers are on, swishing back and forth, but in the next closeup as Nova says, "Mine too," the front windshield is perfectly dry and the wipers are not on, then next shot it's back to rain and swishing.
