Welcome along to Great Movie Mistakes.
This show blows a hole in the carefully constructed veneer
of Hollywood perfection.
Our team of continuity experts, or geeks, have locked themselves away
in the archives to track down the best howlers on the silver screen.
So here are those mistakes,
the ones that have made all that hard work
very nearly worthwhile.
War Of The Worlds starring pocket-sized Tom Cruise.
Cruise may be one of the most powerful men in Hollywood,
but that doesn't make him immune to daft boo-boos.
As he throws a ball to his son, there's a clanger to be spotted.
Cruise throws the ball that smashes the window
except he can't, because his hand's empty.
Little Tom again, but this time in Minority Report.
Here he kicks out the window of his car,
which in hindsight is not a bright thing to do,
bearing in mind that the car flies off the side of a building.
But look, the window's miraculously back!
Then again, maybe self-repairing glazing
will be the norm in the future.
I really hope so.
Next up, The Incredible Hulk, and incredible is right.
Bruce Banner's ringing his bell to announce that he's coming through.
But look, there's no bell on the bike.
It's not Hairspray Tracy Turnblad deserves for this error,
it's pepper spray right in the eyes.
-Take the whole lot in.
-Run, Tracy, run!
Here we see her evade the police and emerge from the angry mob.
Yet when we see her again, she's still in the midst of the crowd.
Pepper-spray Turnblad now!
As the tomb raiders raid a tomb in this scene from Tomb Raider
Daniel Craig is in two places at once.
He was pulling on the rope a second ago.
But look at him now!
Standing by the tomb entrance, the little tinker.
I don't mean the dinosaurs,
if they were any good, they wouldn't have snuffed it, would they?
No, I mean this mistake.
See Ellie stood in front of the sat-down Alan.
But now watch, she walks forwards,
and comes up behind him.
