26 Obvious Movie Mistakes You Probably Never Noticed Before

How have I never noticed these?!

Posted on

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the worst movie mistakes they've ever noticed. Here are the infuriating results.

1. In Legally Blonde, the woman in front of Elle pretends to drink from the fountain, but there isn't even water coming out of it. She's literally just inhaling air, whereas the pool boy clearly drinks the water.


6. In the first Pirates of the Caribbean, a man wearing a cowboy hat can be seen in the background of the final scene.


8. In Spider-Man, Tobey Maguire's character saves Mary Jane, but as they swing away you can clearly tell that he was subbed in with a mannequin. Also, Mary Jane's hair blows incorrectly compared to the way they're swinging.

9. In Mean Girls, Cady accidentally scares Janis and Damian, causing the popcorn to spill everywhere. In the next shot, the popcorn bowl is magically refilled.


12. In Avatar, the Na'vi are supposed to be 10 feet tall, but at the end of the movie Jake's hand fits perfectly when cupping Neytiri's face, which should be disproportionately much larger.

13. In It's a Wonderful Life, Clarence reveals that George's brother died at the age of 9, but the dates on his gravestone say that he was only eight.

14. In Willy Wonka, the candy man accidentally hits a little girl in the face when he lifts the counter.


17. In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy is about to leave with The Wizard, but Toto runs off. She chases him and asks for The Wizard to stay, but you can see the Tin Man untie his balloon and then act surprised when it starts to fly away.


21. In Legally Blonde, Elle gets into the elevator, but Vivian chases after her to stop it. However, because of Vivian's reflection, you can see that she was waiting there the whole time for her cue.

22. In Braveheart, you can see a white van in the background of one of the battle scenes, which is supposed to take place in the late 13th century.

23. In Pitch Perfect, Aubrey lets her hair down during the final performance, but throughout the song it noticeably changes from up to down several times.


26. And, of course, in American Sniper, they substituted a real baby for a literal doll. You can even see Bradley Cooper move the doll's hand with his finger, to make it appear more real.
