If you make a mistake in your line of work, what do you do?
Do you have the type of job where it doesn’t really matter? Maybe you can just shove your hands in your pockets, turn around and walk away whistling!
Or perhaps you have the kind of job where a mistake needs fixing immediately, or that it could be a matter of life and death!
Well, imagine you had the kind of job where if you made a mistake, people could look at it and laugh for the rest of time!
That’s the deal for the folks in the movie business, so laugh all you want at these, but you gotta feel sorry for them too!
While Spidey is getting to grips with his newfound powers, he knocks over a lamp in his bedroom. However when his aunt walks in the room just a few minutes later, it’s back on the shelf in one piece! Those are some crazy powers!
2. Pretty Woman
In one scene, Julia Roberts’ character is enjoying a croissant for breakfast. Yum. But then moments later, the croissant has transformed into a pancake! Either this is a blooper, or she had a croissant in one hand and a pancake.
Russell Crowe was called “The Spaniard”, but the word “Spaniard” wasn’t actually ‘invented’ until about the 14th century, deriving from an old French term – Gladiator was set way back in the year 180!
4. The Dark Knight
You’d think in the Batman movie The Dark Knight, The Gotham Times newspaper would have better a better editing team to spot the typo of the word ‘heist’ in their headline!
5. Cast Away
Chuck Nolan, as played by Tom Hanks, finds a floating FedEx box in the ocean. Crazy, right? But we’re more surprised that the cardboard isn’t soggy from the water…
6. Pulp Fiction
It’s one of Quentin Tarantino’s most popular movies and this is one of the most iconic scenes of the movie… but there are bullet holes in the wall before any shooting actually takes place…
7. Lord Of The Rings – The Hobbit
Orlando Bloom, who played Legolas, is seen with his natural brown eyes in all of the Lord of the Rings films. However, when he appears in The Hobbit film franchise, his eyes are blue!
8. Dallas Buyers Club
In one scene in the film, which is set in 1985, you can see a poster of a Lamborghini Aventador behind Woodroof. However, this specific model of Lamborghini actually did not exist until 2011.
9. Dirty Dancing
In this car scene, Johnny is supposed to be driving – but the gearshift shows that the car is actually in park!
10. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Any Harry Potter knows the main characteristic of Harry’s appearance is that he has his mothers eyes. In the books they’re green, but in the films his eyes are blue. But either way, in the flashback scene of his mother, the actress playing Lily has brown eyes… make your freakin’ mind up!
11. Forrest Gump
In the part of the movie set in 1975, Forrest recieves an exciting letter, and we get to see the header, which is the Apple logo that went on to be so famous. However, the company only started trading and became a public name in 1981, six years after that!
12. Fast and the Furious 7
In this Fast and Furious scene, there’s an explosion close to a house, and people are sent flying everywhere. Oh no! Yet despite this, you can see that all of the windows are still untouched!
13. The Princess and the Frog
Surely in an animated movie, it’s harder to make mistakes like the one’s we’ve seen, right? Well apart from here, where Tiana is flashing her sassy gold earrings, but a few moments later they’ve mysteriously vanished! Call the cops!
14. Gladiator (again)
This is actually a really famous blooper that you might have heard of. A gas canister is in full view of the camera during a chariot race!
15. Star Wars
This is really the blooper that started it all, and it’s still beyond hilarious to this day, when one clumsy stormtrooper hits it’s head on the door frame. Originally the ‘bump’ sound was edited out, but on the digital remastered versions, they left it in!
16. Jungle Book
In the newest version of the Walt Disney classic, you can see a rain scene but the actors aren’t being rained on at all. The creatures that live in the jungle aren’t being splashed on, and neither are the people, such as Mowgli. Did you notice?
There’s one scene where Deadpool – played by Ryan Reynolds – ends up in a dumpster, and he doesn’t have his swords on his back. He climbs out of the dumpster, and the swords have somehow found their way back onto his back again. A few moments later, heading to his apartment and casually strolling down the street, the swords have disappeared once more!
18. Spy Kids
Recording films when there are mirrors around is a very bad idea – you will almost always see a camera man trying to hide from the reflection. Doh!
19. Pirates of the Caribbean
We all knew about his obsession with rum, but who knew Captain Jack Sparrow’s favourite brand was Addidas?
20. The Matrix
Keanu Reeves and Lawrence Fishburne look pretty cool in this door handle reflection shot. But did the camera man really have to get it on the act?
You’d have thought someone might have noticed this very modern plane flying in the background of a very not-modern Brad Pitt in full warrior costume.
22. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Back to the Harry Potter franchise again, and this time with another cameraman, dropped to his knees among the Hogwarts students! Wonder what house he’s in?
Mel Gibson’s 13th century warrior is seen wearing a kilt throughout the movie, yet the kilt itself wasn’t invented until the 16th century.
24. Braveheart (again)
No, not the straight to DVD sequel! It’s just that if you thought the kilt being 2 centuries too early was funny, how early is this guy in a baseball cap?
25. The Lion King
Nala, the best friend of Simba, seems to have color changing eyes. In some scenes, they’re blue, and in others, they’re green. Weird that we never noticed!
26. Rumble in the Bronx
In Jackie Chan’s western breakthrough role, you can tell in some scenes that he’s wearing a sock on his right leg to hide a plaster cast he had to wear when a stunt gone wrong from one of his previous movies earned him a serious injury.
27. American Sniper
People were in hysterics about the time this movie was released because of the obviously fake baby Bradley Cooper had to handle!
28. Django Unchained
Ever noticed this scene where Leonardo DiCaprio hits his hand down on the table? He really did cut himself badly enough to need medical attention – but he carried on with the scene anyway, so that’s real blood!
29. The Aviator
Another of Leo’s movies here, this time set in 1928. Here he’s seen purchasing a box of delicious chocolate chip cookies… even though they weren’t invented until at least two or three years later!
30. Independence Day
It takes a good eye and some local knowledge to notice, but native New Yorkers would be able to tell you that the Empire State Building doesn’t sit straight down a long road like that in real life!
31. Panic Room
Spoiler alert! To escape, the panic room, Jodie Foster’s character sets fire to propane. The propane rises, she drops to the floor, and is instantly saved from the flames. Unfortunately, in real life, you’d be dead if you tried that. The propane wouldn’t have risen, it would have sunk to the floor, because it’s heavier than air.
32. Back to the Future
In the iconic Johnny B. Goode scene, Marty McFly plays a guitar that hadn’t been released yet! That part of the movie is set in the year 1955, but the Gibson ES-345 guitar wasn’t released until 1958… that’s what you get for messing around with time travel, Marty!
33. The Book of Eli
Denzel Washington’s character reads a braille Bible in The Book of Eli, however because braille books are much bigger and thicker than regular books, the Bible he really should carry around would have had to weigh in at over 38 volumes! Not exactly portable!
The Titanic famously sunk after hitting an iceberg in 1912, five years before the actual Lake Wassata was formed by a man-made dam in 1917. So that whole ice-fishing tale Jack told Rose? He must’ve made up…
35. Saving Private Ryan
Captain Miller has been hurt in battle, and he’s composing himself, resting on the ground, leaning up against a motorcycle. The motorcycle in question is a Ural M-63, and a rather authentic model at that. However the bike wasn’t actually released until over eighteen years after the movie was set. Dang.
