Welcome along to Great Movie Mistakes.

0:00:240:00:28

This show blows a hole in the carefully constructed veneer of Hollywood perfection.

0:00:280:00:33

Our team of continuity experts, or geeks,

0:00:330:00:36

have locked themselves away in the archives to track down the best howlers on the silver screen.

0:00:360:00:41

So here are those mistakes, the ones that have made all that hard work very nearly worthwhile.

0:00:410:00:47

Tango and Cash, Dempsey and Makepeace,

0:00:500:00:52

Dalziel and Pascoe, Cagney and Lacey,

0:00:520:00:55

Turner and Hooch and Starsky and Hutch.

0:00:550:00:57

Yes, we love detective shows with two surnames in the title.

0:00:570:01:01

But you don't have to work in CID to have spotted the error in this movie.

0:01:010:01:05

See, when Starsky trips on the beach and his headphones fall off,

0:01:070:01:10

the batteries pop out onto the sand.

0:01:100:01:13

There.

0:01:130:01:14

But when he puts them back on, the music's still playing.

0:01:160:01:20

Stiller, you're a disgrace.

0:01:200:01:22

What do you love about...?

0:01:240:01:26

Almost Famous now and watch how Stillwater lead guitarist

0:01:260:01:29

Russell Hammond chucks the clothes from his chair onto the floor.

0:01:290:01:33

There.

0:01:340:01:36

But hang on, kiddo, they're back again. Nice tache, though.

0:01:360:01:39

Look at it, perched proudly on the top of Russell's lip.

0:01:390:01:43

Here, as the beautiful Penny Lane prepares to take a dump,

0:01:460:01:49

a shocked William Miller knocks his Post-its onto the floor.

0:01:490:01:53

But look - the Post-its are back again!

0:01:530:01:56

Get out of there, William, and shut the door behind you.

0:01:560:02:01

Last Chance Harvey now,

0:02:030:02:05

and Emma Thompson's book is about to turn into a scarf.

0:02:050:02:09

-Are you OK?

-Yes, I'm fine.

0:02:090:02:12

Then back into a book.

0:02:130:02:15

A sure sign that these two people will soon make love.

0:02:150:02:18

Here's an error from 2007 smash, I Am Legend.

0:02:200:02:23

Its main error, other than the fact that

0:02:230:02:26

they actually bothered to make it, is coming up right here.

0:02:260:02:29

Call this a taxi? You might.

0:02:330:02:35

I don't. The underside is quite clearly a flat painted surface.

0:02:350:02:39

The underside of taxis don't look like that,

0:02:390:02:42

as anyone who has been wedged underneath one while waiting for an ambulance will know full well.

0:02:420:02:47

Cairo, 1936.

0:02:490:02:51

As Indiana Jones sits around getting spannered - well, he is on holiday -

0:02:510:02:56

those in the background act as you would in 1930s Egypt,

0:02:560:03:00

walking like Egyptians and that,

0:03:000:03:01

while dressing in traditional costume.

0:03:010:03:04

Apart from this spoilsport in T-shirt and jeans, who ruins

0:03:050:03:10

the entire Indiana Jones franchise for every single one of us.

0:03:100:03:14

Even the monkey's disgusted.
