Even the most skilled writers, producers, and actors occasionally make mistakes. Even great films or television shows have made these errors. These movie errors are like Steve Harvey announcing the wrong winner of miss universe 2015, so funny and awkward. This article lists the top 20 cinematic and television gaffes ever made.
1. The Coffee Cup in Game of Thrones
They erupted over the Starbucks cup seen during the previous season of Game of Thrones. However, the showrunners can now jokingly say, “At first I couldn’t believe it, and then it was an embarrassment because “How did we not see this coffee cup in the middle of the shot?” “This one is just a mistake, and to us now it’s kind of funny,” the woman continued.
2. The Charger in Game of Thrones
Fans have observed what appears to be a computer charger under Stannis’ leg since season 5. This was a behind-the-scenes shot, viewers on Reddit noted, and the device didn’t appear quite as obvious in the final cut (though you can still kind of see the charger and cables in the final version).
3. The Stormtrooper Hitting His Head in Star Wars
In Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, a stormtrooper bangs his head on the door as a group of them enter a control room. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Laurie Goode, the actor who suffered a head injury, said, “Believing I probably wasn’t in the frame, I expected it to end up on the cutting-room floor. But when I did see it at the cinema, I thought, “OMG, that’s me! Since it happened, I have been sharing the tale with others.
4. The Eyes of Harry and His Mom in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Harry is frequently told that he “has his mother’s eyes” by various characters throughout the Harry Potter books and movies, which is an interesting detail. However, Lily Potter has brown eyes instead of Harry’s blue ones when we finally see her as a young child in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Although both of them are described as having green eyes in the books, young Daniel Radcliffe reportedly experienced contact lens-related complications.
5. The Crown – Series 3
The hit Netflix show’s creator Peter Morgan takes plenty of artistic license with this historical drama. But eagle-eyed royal fans spotted a mistake in the trailer for the third season. When Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II is shown celebrating her 1977 Silver Jubilee, the voiceover gets the date of the Queen’s coronation wrong by a year, saying the Silver jubilee was 25 years after the Coronation. It was 24 years, as her coronation occurred on June 2, 1953.
6. The Missing Necklace in Game of Thrones
Fans immediately referred to an earlier scene in the show after it was revealed in Game of Thrones season 6 that Melisandre only looks young due to the choker necklace she wears. Despite not wearing her necklace, she appears as Stannis’ wife in season 4 as a young woman. The actress who plays Melisandre, Carice van Houten, later admitted to Elle that “that was an oops moment.”
7. Wild Bill
Rob Lowe plays a US police chief who relocates to the UK to take the position of Chief Constable with East Lincolnshire police in the ITV fish out of water detective drama. He is adorned with four medal ribbons: the Queen’s Police Medal, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, and the Police Long Service and Good Conduct Medal. He shouldn’t be wearing any of them, in addition to the fact that they are not in the proper order. He is an American who has never worked for the British police before.
8. The Breakfast Food Switch up in “Pretty Woman”
Julia Roberts’ character can be seen eating a croissant in one scene of Pretty Woman. When the camera returns to Roberts after cutting to her co-star Richard Gere, the croissant in her hand has changed into a pancake.
9. The X-Files
David Duchovny’s character Fox Mulder claims that his sister Samantha was kidnapped by aliens, but his memories of the incident are conflicting. He claims he was immobile during the hypnotherapy regression therapy, but in the flashbacks, he is perfectly capable of moving. In the fifth season episode “Travellers,” Mulder is also seen wearing a wedding ring, which raises the question of why he had never mentioned being married. In reality, Duchovny had just recently wed, but it marked a significant change in Mulder’s past.
10. The Bullet Holes in Pulp Fiction
Before the shooting portion of the scene in Pulp Fiction, the apartment where Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta’s characters go to get a briefcase has bullet holes in the walls.
11. Doctor Who
The Doctor is how old? He claims to be anywhere between 500 and several thousand years old in the classic era. However, David Tennant’s Doctor in the revived series claims to be 904 years old. Unless he is lying, the continuity has been lost somewhere along the way.
12. The Sopranos
Almost blinded by a can of spray during Ralphie’s death scene in his kitchen, Tony Soprano still manages to knock Ralphie to the ground and kill him. James Gandolfini, who does an outstanding job as Tony, accidentally placed his hand on the oven’s lit burners when the scene was supposed to end with Tony placing his hands on the counter and gasping for air. The pain was genuine, but this error fit the scene just right.
13. The Simpsons
In the 1995 episode “And Maggie Makes Three,” when Marge tells Homer she is expecting Maggie, a picture of Maggie is hanging on the wall of the living room. This is a bit of a clinger considering Maggie is not yet born at this point.
14. Stranger Things
The TV drama’s second season takes place in October 1984, one year after the first. You might have expected them to get the soundtrack right given that the show deals in nostalgia, but they didn’t. There are errors, such as the background music from “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths during a flashback involving Will and Jonathan. The issue is that this specific Smiths song wasn’t made public until 1986. A mechanical error was also present: Barb’s 1988 Volkswagen Cabrio.
It appears that the actors got a little lazy in the first season’s episode “Provenance,” calling the characters by their real names rather than their character names. When the character’s name is Sam Winchester, Dean refers to his brother as “Jared,” and an extra refers to Dean Winchester as “Jensen,” which is also the name of the actor who plays him.
It’s one of those shows where viewers looked for hints and deeper meanings. But they noticed more than they had intended to. Before the turbine explodes in the first episode’s plane crash scene, a mysterious dark object sweeps upwards that can only be seen by viewers who are going frame by frame through the scene. Was it the smoke monster in its earliest form? No, the creators claim it was just a CGI error.
17. Big Bang Theory
The enduring US sitcom opens with more name muddles. When he first appears on the show, Wyatt, as opposed to Bob, is the name Penny, the aspiring actress, calls her father. Penny is played by Kaley Cuoco. In addition, there is a plot error involving the malfunctioning elevator in the apartment complex. Leonard tells Howard in season one that the elevator has been broken for two years as they carry the time machine up the stairs. Howard, however, ought to be aware of this given that he was present when Leonard detonated it. This is revealed in a later episode’s flashback, which also states that the incident occurred five years ago, not two.
18. Doctor Foster
When Suranne Jones is seen in the BBC hit drama drinking wine in her kitchen, there is a continuity mistake. The fridge door in the background is opening and closing on its own as she downs the wine and texts on her phone.
19. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
When Angel is unable to perform CPR, Season One’s premise that vampires lack breath is confirmed. But Spike is even tortured by drowning while the vampires talk, pant, and even smoke, all of which require breathing.
Jennifer Aniston’s character Rachel was replaced by a stand-in during a scene in season nine, episode 15 (“The One with the Mugging”) while she was still in the frame. She is even dressed differently as she sits at the table at the edge of the frame. Another scene shows Phoebe conversing with Monica, but it’s not Monica. Courteney Cox’s body double has been carelessly left in the picture.
21. Coronation Street
When Debbie Rush’s Anna Windass discovered Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) hurt on the sidewalk and picked up her phone to call for help, the audience laughed out loud. Without touching the screen, unlocking her phone, or entering any phone numbers, she was able to complete the task.
22. Malcolm In The Middle
In the US sitcom about a dysfunctional family, there is a crew member crouching in the hallway holding a bucket when Lois exits holding her torn dress that is dripping wet to confront her children.
23. The child covering his ears in “North by Northwest”
In a scene in the movie North by Northwest, Eva Marie Saint’s character unintentionally shoots Cary Grant’s character with a gun. A few seconds before the shot is fired, one of the kids playing an extra in the background covers his ears. Couldn’t someone have reached for the child’s earplugs? Play 1:40 in the clip. On the other hand, you can also watch a cute story behind the viral video “Charlie Bit My Finger”, surely this will also make you giggle.
Before falling in love with Carol, the handsome pediatrician Doug Ross, played by George Clooney, had a son, or did he? Despite a few mentions of the son in season one, he later asserts in the series that he is childless.
The steering wheel was missing from the spaceship set in the first episode of this sci-fi show. Alan Tudyk’s portrayal of Wash, the pilot of Serenity, can be seen improvising with his hands around a made-up wheel. It seems unlikely that this error was overlooked.
26. Twin Peaks
The error actually led to a change in the series’ storyline. Frank Silva, a crew member, is said to have been accidentally captured on camera by David Lynch when his reflection appeared in a mirror during a scene where Laura Palmer was seen yelling. Lynch was so taken with it that he decided to include it, and he chose Silva to play the role of Killer Bob, a sinister spirit that haunts Laura.
27. The Streetsweeper in Quantum of Solace
You may have noticed that the street sweeper in Quantum of Solace is oddly holding his broom several inches above the ground while pretending to sweep rather than simply sweeping the ground.
28. Osama Bin Laden Mention in Breaking Bad
Jack Welker, one of Breaking Bad’s main antagonists, mentions Osama bin Laden’s death to his nephew Todd at one point. The show’s intended time period is 2007, but bin Laden didn’t pass away until 2011. I thought this show took place in 2007, and it’s only been a year since then, but last week you had someone mention the Osama bin Laden assassination. How do you reconcile that? the writer said to me. ‘Well, honestly, I don’t,’ I had to reply.
29. The Mention of Octopus in The Goonies
The octopus, which doesn’t appear in the original version of the movie, is referred to as “the scariest part” by Data near the end of The Goonies. For the theatrical release, the octopus scene was cut; however, it was reinstated for the Disney Channel version.
30. The T-shirt Tran’s Wearing in The Fast and The Furious
In the race between Jesse and Tran in The Fast and the Furious, there is a pretty obvious mistake. Tran appears in one shot sporting a sleeved shirt while appearing in another wearing a tank top. In this video, you can tell the difference between 0:55 and 0:58.
