Everything is fine and dandy in this opening musical number from "Willy Wonka." That is until the Candy Man inadvertently smacks a young girl in the chin (for better visual evidence, check out the full clip here -- it happens at the 1:58 mark).
'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone' (2001) In "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (aka "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone") there's a shot of Prof. McGonagall in which you can clearly the wires that keep the candles afloat.
As the Fratellis drive away outside the lighthouse restaurant, Mikey's rain coat is clearly torn along the left sleeve. In following shots, however, Mikey's coat is without any tears. Mikey's secret talent: needlework.
When Pedro (Efren Ramirez) is sitting at the table in the cafeteria and Napoleon (Jon Heder) sits down with him, Pedro’s right arm is under the table. In the next shot both of his arms are on the table.
When Harry's broomstick tries to shake him off because of the spell, you can see a metal seat on the broom. This was presumably to make the broomstick more comfortable for Daniel Radcliffe to sit on (though, you'd think there would be a spell for that).
When the same things happen over and over again in a film, you're bound to get something wrong. In this scene, when Bill Murray's character Phil comes around the corner, you can see a woman carrying a yellow shopping bag and walking with a friend -- something that goes on for the first few days. However, on the last day, the woman is walking by herself.
In this "Jumanji" still, the license plate in the top photo clearly reads "G2298." After the cop car goes airborne, however, the plate changes to "CFJB95." Also, with a different bumper, it's clear they are two separate vehicles.
When Roger and Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) are about to crash in the cab, there is a shot of an open bridge. As they jump onto the same bridge, they crash into a traffic barrier that has mysteriously appeared.
When the minion dressed as a maid answers the door, there is only a vacuum on the carpet. After he gets snatched, however, an umbrella holder magically appears next to the door and the vacuum has shifted positions.
Since Matlida has special powers, we should let this one slide. However, the giant cross missing on the chalkboard is pretty obvious. Another case of something being there one moment, then vanishing the next.
This scene still boggles the mind. One moment, Zeke is sitting on a stool big enough for his feet to dangle from it. A second later, it's become a mini-stool. Didn't anyone on the set notice? Zeke, speak up for yourself!
After slipping on the ice, Marv (Daniel Stern) attempts to hook his crowbar on the sill of the door to keep from falling. After eventually falling, it becomes clear that the crowbar is actually not fashioned to the sill, but rather is hanging and swinging by a wire.
Man, we miss Kevin McCallister and his crazy antics. In this scene from 'Home Alone 2,' he's being chased by Marv and Harry through New York City. To evade them, Kevin buys a necklace, breaks it and throws the pearls on the ground. Problem is, the "Sticky Bandits" end up slipping on twice the amount Kevin had originally put there.
Directors don't always have a big special effects budget. Still, the filmmakers behind 'Honey, I Blew Up the Kid' could have just cut this scene out. That way, we wouldn't have gotten to see actress Keri Russell's stunt double, who looks nothing like her.
Similar to the mistake we saw in 'Matilda,' this scene from 'The Karate Kid' uses two different notes Mr. Miyagi left Daniel. One has an exclamation point, the other does not. So much for self-discipline.
'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' (2005)
We respect the fact that family movies shouldn't be gratuitous about violence. But in this scene from 'The Chronicles of Narnia,' they could have been a little more realistic about Peter getting stabbed in the arm. The sword is barely touching him.
Our last animated mistake comes courtesy of 'The Little Mermaid.' When Ariel and Eric are sitting in the boat, Ariel's hair is down. In the next shot, we see a reflection of her shadow in the water, which clearly shows the mermaid's hair in a ponytail.
Great Scott! The odometer in Doc Brown's DeLorean has different readings several times in this scene, as does the trip counter. Also, if you look closely at the needle, you can tell that it's a different display being used.
