Home Alone (1990)

Revealing mistake: When Harry trips on the fan string throwing feathers all over him, the fan sound is heard running but there's no air blowing at him as the feathers are falling around him undisturbed. A few shots later, we see the fan on and blowing feathers around the room which is what it should have been doing.

Continuity mistake: When we first arrive at the club in 1975, the 3 women are singing on stage. The woman's mic stand on the right has the wires all neatly hidden however when we have the shot from behind the stage the wire on her mic he hanging off freely to the side.

Dumb and Dumber (1994)

Revealing mistake: When Harry is lying on the bed at the end - you can see he's not wearing a bullet proof vest as the extra bulk they cause is not visible on his torso. However once he's shot, the bulk is visible under his shirt for the remainder of the scene.

Home Alone (1990)

Revealing mistake: When Kevin lands in the treehouse, he's at the back with his feet through the wall. Given where the rope is tied to the tree, he would have hit into the tree or the door frame of the treehouse, not at the back wall.

Factual error: When Optimus is killed, the fight takes place in a mountainous forest with that was filled with extremely tall trees not indigenous to NJ, much less any surrounding state of the area portrayed in that scene.

Factual error: Aside from the lack of an Air Force base in NJ that looks anything like the one portrayed in the film, there are no mountains anywhere closely resembling the ones seen in the distance by the base.

Continuity mistake: When they are behind the Hollywood sign in the beginning of the movie, Number 2's Starbucks cup logo on the holder keeps facing different directions from shot to shot even though he's not touching it.

Trivia: Despite being shot in the early 80's, the organ that Annie plays on hasn't been functional in some 40+ years.

Continuity mistake: When the security guards are seen pulling the cords out from the wall, we see four of them pulling the plugs. However when the shot changes, we see three of the carts pulling away and the fourth guard still hasn't reached his cart or plug yet. (01:12:30)

Audio problem: The carts the guards are chasing Pee-Wee in are electric, which we see when they first get to them and have to unplug them. However throughout the entire chase scene we distinctly hear gas engine sound effects. (01:12:30)

Factual error: All NJ local police cars follow state law by having valid license plates on the front and back of the car. Only in NYC do they have plates like the one shown at the end: on the front of the car is an all white plate with blue lettering and the four-digit car number.
