Hot Fuzz mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Michael attacks Nicholas in his hotel room, during this scene objects being broken or shoved (such as stuffed monkey, radio, lamp, picture) change their position, or the characteristics of the actual damage, change from shot to shot. Additionally, when Nicholas is slammed into the picture it begins to fall forward, but next shot it rests upright against the wall. (01:17:30)

Hot Fuzz (2007)

Continuity mistake: In Nicholas's hotel room, just after Nicholas is thrown onto the bed, Michael shoves Nicholas into the dresser. In the first shot (facing the dresser), the officer's back faces the dresser, as he slams his head into Michael's stomach (which is to the right of the dresser), and his arm is stretched when he breaks the glass. Second (close-up) shot (facing the right side of the dresser), Nicholas's head faces the opposite way (to the left of the lamp) and his arm is bent at the elbow as the glass breaks again. Third shot (same angle as first), his body position is the same as first shot. (01:17:35)

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas sits in front of Frank Butterman's desk, as they discuss his idea of multiple killers, one of the window shade slats is flipped up and out of position. After a brief close-up of Butterman, the slats are perfectly aligned in Nicholas's close-up. (01:16:15)

Later, Cate Blanchett appears as Janine, who is hidden behind a surgical mask, and from whom Nicholas is estranged. And the film's director, Edgar Wright, is seen as the store employee pushing the cart when Nicholas walks towards the manager's office.
