The Long Walk

Continuity mistake: Ray Garraty is 16 when he participates in The Long Walk, and it is also mentioned in Chapter 1 that his father had taken him to see a Long Walk when he was ten. However, in Chapter 7, he thinks about how his father had been taken away eleven years ago, never to be seen again. So when did Garraty's father disappear? Five years ago or eleven years ago?

The Long Walk

Factual error: In Chapter 13, it is said that April 31st had been the final day to drop out voluntarily. April only has 30 days.

The Long Walk

Continuity mistake: In Chapter 4, Garraty thinks about Jan and her long, dark hair. Later, in Chapter 6, he once again thinks of her, this time with her long, blonde hair.

Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Continuity mistake: When Marge is racing the school bus, as the bus jumps out of the ditch you can see that the bottom of the bus is painted to resemble a skateboard. When the bus lands from this jump, however, the bottom of the bus is an even grey colour.

Red Eye (2005)

Continuity mistake: The ka-bar knife Jack takes from his dead associate, goes from having a dull, black blade (best seen when he tries to pry the door open with it), to a regular, shiny steel one.

Continuity mistake: When Wolf first grew to giant size, he had trouble fitting through a door because of his size. Toward the end, though, he is sitting at eye-level with Genius and has become much smaller. This is before Genius makes the gas that would shrink him back to regular size.

Twotall

Other mistake: When the teens first grew into giants, their clothes did not grow with them, so they had to make improvised clothing out of theater curtains. In the end, when exposed to the shrinking gas, the teens become their regular size, and the improvised clothes also shrink with them. No one else's clothes are affected by the gas in this way.

Deliberate mistake: When trying to capture the giant Fred, the townspeople trip him with an outstretched rope that they hold in their hands and is not fastened to anything. He is the size of a lighthouse, there is no way they could have held a rope in their hands and tripped him with it.

Continuity mistake: When one of the kids break into the laboratory, everyone else is partying in the garden. In the outside shots, it is dark, but in all the shots from inside the lab you can see through the windows that it is daylight outside.

Twotall

Plot hole: The giant-sized teenagers show themselves at the garden party and start making threats about taking over the town. They then spend the night in the theatre, and the next day they decide to cut off all communications to and from the town. For some reason, not one of the party-goers, or the sheriff, decided to call someone during the night and tell the remarkable story about 30 feet tall teenagers seizing the power through force.

Twotall

Other mistake: Toward the end, Genius and Wolf (the dog) are in the lab, Genius suddenly shouts at the dog, "Hey, don't do that. Keep away." The dog wasn't doing anything except wiggle his ears a little. He made no move whatsoever toward the glass jar Genius wants him to stay away from.

Twotall

Revealing mistake: When the gang tries the growth formula in the theatre, they quickly grow out of all their clothes until they are naked. But the scrunchy in Jean's pony tail is still in place and shows no signs of being stretched, even if the pony tail now is 20 times bigger.

Twotall

Deliberate mistake: The theatre is said to have been closed down "years ago". But all the theater props are still there, and the place shows no sign of disuse, it is not even dusty anywhere. The electricity and water are also still hooked up and functioning.

Twotall

Plot hole: The two gigantic ducks suddenly appear in the middle of a crowded dance floor. Some people would actually have had to move away to allow the ducks to pass for them to be there, but no one notices them until they are in the middle of the floor.

Twotall

Continuity mistake: During the barbecue, Mike's hair is at first very high. In between shots while in the garden, his hair constantly varies in height, and when he goes into the basement his hair is almost flat against his head.

Twotall

Revealing mistake: When the girl on the motorcycle is trying to tie Mike's legs together by driving around them in circles, his legs are obviously props. This also goes for later, when he is lying on the ground and the townspeople are trying to tie him up. When his legs are in shot, they look fake, and never moves an inch.

Twotall

Continuity mistake: When Mike fights the giant spider in the basement, he floods the basement and electrocutes the spider. Later that same night, the teenage gang break into the basement, but there is no sign of neither the water nor the huge, dead spider.

The Simpsons (1989)

HOMR - S12-E9

Continuity mistake: When Homer sits down in the movie theater, all the rows are completely full, including the row behind him. When he turns around to talk to Selma, the seats directly behind him are empty. Then, when Homer turns back to the screen, the Sea Captain and Dr. Hibbert appear sitting directly behind him.

Red Eye (2005)

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is on board the plane, she is wearing stiletto heels (best seen when she is collapsing in the bathroom). However, when she is running through the airport, she is wearing flat shoes. This is most easily seen when she comes of the transporter belt, when she trips and one of her feet swings into the air. Later, when she kicks Jack on the stairs of her house, she is wearing stiletto heels again.
