Lost (2004)

One of Us - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Episode 3-16, "One of Us". When Juliette and Ben are talking towards the end, Ben is first seen with his hands folded (fingers interlocking) in front of him. Just after Juliette says "I'll admit to it, tell her it was the only way to gain her trust", Ben's hands are in the same position, but are not folded, his right hand is just lying on top of his left. Cut to a close-up of Ben, and his hands are once again folded.

Future War (1997)

Other mistake: During the Cyborg Master's attack on the police station, the bald cop goes to get a gun out of the gun storage room - which is a regular closet. It's not even locked, he just walks straight in. No police station in the world would be that careless with their weapons.

Future War (1997)

Audio problem: When the police and reporters are outside the warehouse where the dinosaur attack happened, Captain. Polaris communicates with other cops by radio. Strangely enough, his own voice, and the voice of the bald cop beside him also sound mechanical, with the crackling quality you hear over radios, even though they are on screen and should be heard normally. This even goes on when they are talking to each other, without using the radios.

Future War (1997)

Continuity mistake: During the first fight scene, the cyborg hunter has dark markings around his eyes. As soon as the fight moves indoors, the markings disappear completely.

Future War (1997)

Revealing mistake: The "camera" the reporters use while filming at the warehouse, is an obvious, poorly-made prop made out of a cardboard box with some plastic bits glued to it.

Future War (1997)

Revealing mistake: When the Cyborg Master enters the police station, he shoots two police women before a third cop starts shooting back with a shotgun. The third shot he fires hits the wall behind the cyborg, and the entire wall wobbles as the squib goes off to make the hole in the wall.

Future War (1997)

Continuity mistake: While the runaway and the Cyborg Master are fighting in the church, there are bloody cuts on the runaway's chest that keep appearing and disappearing between shots. In addition, he also suddenly gains a cut above his eye, that conveniently enough is already covered with a band-aid he didn't have there to begin with.

Future War (1997)

Continuity mistake: When sister Ann and the runaway slave are in the train, her hair is in a ponytail with a few loose strands hanging out. She hands the slave a cookie, then leans back against the wall. Cut to a close-up of her face, and her hair looks very different, with lots more hair hanging loose down the sides of her face.

Future War (1997)

Continuity mistake: When the gang are running through the tunnels just before the bomb goes off, sister Ann and the runaway are the last people in the line, pushing the others before them. They are, however, the first ones to exit the tunnel.

Future War (1997)

Other mistake: All the boxes at the warehouse and cargo area are empty. Nobody has ever any problems lifting the boxes and tossing them around, or simply nudging them aside. Yet the boxes are sealed and neatly stacked outside in huge rows, waiting to be transported.

Syndicate

Cheat: In the starting phase, when asked to choose a logo and name for your company, use the standard Bullfrog logo with white background, and set company name to "Mike's Team" (with apostrophe). This allows you to have all upgrades, weapons and equipment ready at the start of the game, as well as allowing you to select any mission you want instead of doing them in the pre-set order.

Sim City

Cheat: If you're running low on cash, pause the game, move the cursor to point at your money, then type "FUNDS". Every time you type this, you gain $10.000.

Home Improvement (1991)

Sisters And Brothers - S4-E24

Continuity mistake: In the opening segment, as Heidi hands Tim his hot-air gun, he takes it with both hands, then lets go with his left so he's only holding the gun in his right hand. The angle changes, and Tim is once again holding the gun with both hands, before he once again removes his left hand.

Tool Time After Dark (2) - S4-E23

Continuity mistake: When Tim goes outside to talk to Wilson, the distinct three-looped straw he used is still standing in his antacid bottle. When he comes back inside, the bottle is on the table where it was, but the straw has disappeared.

Huckleberry Finn

Continuity mistake: In chapter 17, where Huck first meets the Grangerford family, Col. Grangerford is described as "grey and about sixty". However, in the next chapter, the colonel is described in more detail, and his grey hairs are gone. Huck describes him as "clean-shaved, all over his thin face", and with hair "black and straight".

General questions

I am trying to find out the name of the movie that had the following scene: a man is flipping a toothpick over and over in his mouth. It gets stuck, holding his mouth open, and he gags/coughs and takes it out. I think he was trying to be cool or intimidating as he flipped it so it was amusing when he got it stuck. I am guessing it was some time in the early 90's.

Let's Go To The Videotape - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: The conversation Tim and the others have at the hardware store becomes a lot different when Jill sees the (supposedly) same conversation on videotape. First of all, Tim's remark the "Jill's speech was so boring" has become "Jill's speech was so DULL". Secondly, Eddie's entire tale on how his wife wanted to change the fabric in the sun room is missing from the tape. And third, when Tim is talking about Jill's psychology studies, the expression "these terms" has become "these USELESS terms".

General questions

I remember seeing a film as a girl and remember only one scene where a woman is at a party and is hiding or sneaking around, and by accident gets her dress shredded by standing above the shredder. Does anyone know what film I'm talking about?
