28 Biggest Movie Mistakes You Didn’t Spot

It’s almost impossible to make a perfect movie (nobody said it would be easy in the first place, anyway), but some movies are obviously filled with silly movie mistakes. And sometimes we are too busy drooling over the cute actors and actresses that we never spot the errors in every movie we watch as it takes time and keen eyes to see such trivial errors. But there is a big community of film fans who love nothing in movies except to point out the inconspicuous errors in movies that don’t quite fit in rightly, and they take great pleasure in spotting continuity errors in the smallest details. Well, because the background of every movie is a tricky place to work, they only laugh at the editing team that must’ve done everything they could but still didn’t erase such errors. You can join in the fun by going through these images below showing some movie mistakes you must have missed.

Ocean’s Eleven (2001)


Remember the scene when Linus and Rusty are standing in the Botanical Garden at the Bellagio going over Linus’ observations? If you did then you would’ve noticed that Rusty has a cocktail glass of shrimp in hand. But when they change angles he has a plate in his hand, then change back, it’s a glass.

American Pie (1999)


In the bedroom scene, the girl is holding a clear cup full of beer. The camera goes off her and when it comes back, she is holding a blue cup. The camera goes back off her then comes back on her and the cup is clear again.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

The T-1000 strikes his body through the window of a helicopter to gain access to the inside. A moment later, the hole in the windshield could no longer be seen.



Well, most people have seen Gladiator but only the keen eyes were able to notice a lot of mistakes in the movie. One that is most obvious occurred in the “Battle of Carthage” in the Colosseum, when one of the chariots is turned over and immediately the dust settles, you can see a gas cylinder in the back of the chariot.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Several silly mistakes were made in this successful movie that were ultimately clear. Among the most memorable is when Harry Potter’s signature scar was disappearing and reappearing at will. Was that Magic too? Many didn’t think so.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

The big mistake in this movie was during the start of term feast, after Harry is sorted into Gryffindor, he sits down on the right side of the table next to Ron. In an instant just when the feast begins, Harry is seen on the other side of the table, now close to Hermione.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

Initially Julia Roberts was munching a croissant, but in a second it magically changed to a pancake.

Terminator Genisys


At the time T-1000 walks past the deactivated T-800 just after being shot at by Kyle Reese, it is clear that T-800 has sustained lots of damage to the face and the nose is missing. But when the T-800 wakes up after being reactivated it is clear to see also that the nose is back with a lot less damage to the face.

It takes only eagle-eyed fans to notice this ridiculous mistake. When the battle started, those who played this scene in slow-motion saw a white van close to the group of pikemen.

The Matrix

Notice the camera lens in the door knob?


There are crazy movie errors also in this movie… Twilight fans did you spot any?

300: The Rise Of Empire

The color of Artemisia’s Apple turns from green to red…Magic?

Jurassic World

A screen in the room that depicts health activity. Just wondering how all the four people chasing the escaped I-Rex have identical heart rates.


Fans are busy talking about airplane mistakes in Troy but only a handful know it’s fake, since the image was photo shopped. Some people think it’s scrapped out in the final version, but if you re-watch the movie again you will see no plane. But another epic mistake you overlooked while talking about the airplane is when the arrows on shield bend disappeared. How?

Iron Man

Just take a look at these silly bloopers

The Dark Knight

The Avengers

During the big battle against the Chitauri, Captain America is zapped with a blaster bolt. When Thor helps him to stand, a keen eye could spot a good amount of damage done to his suit, just below the star on the right hand side. However, after Iron Man destroys the Chitauri ship with the nuke, the damage disappeared entirely.

Still in Avengers….after first coming of Thor a car was damaged, but looks okay the next minute.

Back to the Future

When Marty is being chased by the Libyans, a few times it cuts away to show the instrumentation in the car. The first time the odometer reads 33064.2 and the trip counter says 88.8; the second time it’s goes back a little to 33061.8 and 86.4. A few seconds later we see it as he turns the corner, and it goes down again from 33,061.8 to 32,994.4, the trip counter has gone from 86.4 to 19. In fact it’s a completely different set of instrumentation – the bottom of the needle’s angled in some shots and flat in others.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

After Marion supposedly dies in the truck explosion and Indy is drinking outside at the bar, watch to the left of him. You can see a man wearing a modern t-shirt and jeans walking through the crowd.


After Leon saves Mathilda from the SWAT team and dodges the snipers, he shoots out a ventilation fan to create an escape route. He gets off two shots before we see the vent, but when it does we see about 7 bullet holes around the vent. In an instant after the camera goes back to Leon as he keeps firing and then switches back, the holes around the vent are unlike.

Iron Man 2

The big question is; Could it be that people who pocket home big salaries did their job poorly or is it just carelessness?
