Ever watch a movie and notice that something does not fit?
Like...........
Ever notice that the make and model of some cars instantly change?
Or one brake light is out in one scene and suddenly comes on moments later?

Welcome to the land of movie oddments.
Little bits that either were missed in the editing room or would simply cost too much to correct so they were left alone.

I recently watched a movie that had a boat blow up beside a dock.
And at the end of the movie...........there was a drowning scene at the same dock................with the boat and dock still moored there, intact.

Car chases are infamous for this.
Car makes a tremendous jump. Comes crashing down and you see all the bits come apart. But it carries on.

It's been a little while since I've watched it, so I'd have to pull it out to confirm this, but there is a scene in Pulp Fiction, when John Travolta drives fast and furiously to get Uma Thurman to a drug dealer's house for an adrenalin shot, and he crashes in the yard, and then when they come back out, the car is fine. I could be dreaming that, but I don't think so. It stood out to me as an editing blooper.

My favorite of oopsies was Bullit.
There were more broken 'B' cars and chasers than in any other movie.

The Fifth Element.
The priest goes to see Corbin Dallas. He gets to the door and see "Corbin" and calls him "Mr. Willis", only to be corrected by "Mr. Willis" that his movie name was Corbin Dallas.
Ten movie bloopers so good that they were left in.

There are several books about Star Trek.
The Nitpicker's Guide for Classic Trekkers by Phil Farrand
and
The Nitpicker's Guide for Next Generation Trekkers

I like the classic dialog with Mr. Spock where his communicator changes from the right side to the left and back several times.

There's nothing like a good continuity gloop, they are either "bad", "hilarious", or both.....

Commando. Arnie wrecks one side of car chasing villain. Catches villain, drops him & gets back in car. Not a scratch on it. :-)
