Continuity mistake: In the scene where the mercenaries are introduced, in the first overhead shot, and in the close-up before their individual introduction, they are standing in line with Blade on the far left, followed by Saurod, Karg and Beast-Man. As Skeletor walks past them giving instructions, Karg and Blade change places.

Continuity mistake: When Julie moves through the alley towards whom she thinks is her mother, in the first shot from her she is seen from behind as she walks to the wall on her left, and puts her hand out to it, almost as if to steady herself. The angle changes to a front view, and she is now standing next to a stack of crates, with her hand down by her side. The next time she is shown from behind, she is once again standing by a blank wall, with her hand outstretched to it, before she runs to her "mother".

American Ninja (1985)

Continuity mistake: During the first 20 minutes of the movie, Patricia is wearing a pearl necklace. When she is shown sitting in the car, it is a double string of pearls. After she has crashed the car and climbs out, it is a single string of pearls. When she and Joe are running through the jungle, it is once again a double string, and when she returns home it is a single string again. This can not be explained by the necklace being a long string of pearls that's draped twice around her neck, as the necklace is always shown to reach just below her throat, and a longer string would reach further down.

American Ninja (1985)

Revealing mistake: During the Army assault on Ortega's compound, Jackson is shown as he uses a machine gun to clear a long balcony of enemies. The third person he kills here is hit several times, but does not fall over the railing. Instead he slowly and carefully climbs over it, lifting one leg over at a time.

Mystery Men (1999)

Continuity mistake: During Casanova's parole hearing, there is a clock on the wall behind the parole board. After Lance Hunt is done reading the "statement from Captain Amazing", this clock keeps showing different times for six shots. Whenever the camera is on the chairman of the parole committee, the clock shows 9.05 exactly, whenever it's on Hunt, the clock jumps back a few minutes, and shows 9.03.

The Punisher (2004)

Continuity mistake: During the dinner scene, when Frank and Joan almost kiss, they keep changing distance to each other. Every time the shot is from over his shoulder, their faces are really close together, almost touching. When the shot is from over her shoulder, they are further apart.

Continuity mistake: In the fight scene on the pier, just after Freddy has sliced off Jason's fingers, Jason blocks the machete, Freddy slashes him with the glove and then cuts Jason's chest with the machete and raises the machete for a downward blow. They are now standing face to face. However, when Freddy makes this cut, Jason's back is all of a sudden turned, enabling Freddy to cut his leg from behind. There was no time for him to turn around between cuts.

Factual error: The film takes place in 1960, but the propaganda film shown by the Political Officer includes TV footage from the Civil Rights demonstrations in Birmingham, Alabama in May 1963.

Continuity mistake: During the dinner and seance at Merripit House, Sir Henry's bow tie is tied "single-ended", with one flared and one pointed tip. However, when he and Watson return to Baskerville Hall later that night, his tie is tied in a regular "butterfly" fashion (both ends flared). After they chase Selden out of the house, Sir Henry's tie is once again tied single-ended.

Continuity mistake: When Watson is walking up to the Black Tor, he is seen walking in torrential rain. But when he arrives at the top, the rain has stopped, and both his hair and clothes are completely dry.

Plot hole: Holmes asks what had frightened Sir Charles enough to make him run away from the house. But when Dr. Mortimer described the scene, he only mentioned that at one point the prints did not show heel imprints. It is an easy deduction that sir Charles had been running, but the doctor did not say anything about the direction of the footprints.

Continuity mistake: When walking to Merripit House, Watson and Stapleton are seen walking through heavy rain. But when they arrive at the house, they are bone dry.

Plot hole: When Freddy takes over Jesse's body at the party, there are several people watching through the patio doors when he confronts Lisa. None of these people ever make a sound, even when they see Lisa have a knife fight with a horribly disfigured man with long knives coming out of his fingers. The other party goers are completely oblivious to Freddy's presence until he comes jumping through the glass doors.

Downfall (2004)

Continuity mistake: When the message from Göering arrives in the Führerbunker, the signature jumps from one side of the paper to the other. When we first see the machine printing the words "H. Goering, Reichsfeldmarschall", they are on the left side of the paper, as the officer removes the paper from the printer the signature is to the right.

Kickboxer (1989)

Continuity mistake: When Kurt goes grocery shopping for Xian, some kids splash him with water from the pump. During the entire rest of the scene, the water marks on his shirt keep changing size and shape, and grow quite considerably from the first small sprinkle. In addition, the back of his shirt is completely dry when he goes up to the store, but when the fight breaks out, almost all of his back is wet, and these stains also change shape from one moment to the next.

Continuity mistake: When we first see the "Whack-a-Satan" game at Praiseland, there are three rows of holes the little devil dolls emerge from. After Nelson turns towards Flanders, the game is seen behind him, now with only two rows of holes.

Fool's Errand

Continuity mistake: In Chapter 28, "Homecoming", Fitz falls asleep while drinking wine in his bath. When Chade enters and startles him awake, Fitz is still holding the neck of the wine bottle, which Chade catches before Fitz upends it. This means his hand with the bottle was outside of the tub. But only a page later, Fitz mentions that both his hands are wrinkled from being immersed in water for so long.

Rounders (1998)

Continuity mistake: When Mike is in the bath talking to Knish, his right hand moves around a lot. Whenever Mike is seen from behind, his hand is on the marble column next to him, but when he is seen from the front, both his hands are in his coat pockets. Back and forth, through the entire scene.

Revealing mistake: The movie is set in New York, but in the final scene you can see a sticker on the door of the law school that says "Smoking in this building" where the bottom reads "State University of New Jersey".
