The name's Webb, Robert Webb and I've got a license to kill...
the next two hours of your life,
with all the mistakes from the latest movie releases.
It's the return of the show that leaves the movie industry
shaken and stirred by pointing out
when it's made a right Thunder... up.
Our team of movie nerds have been on Her Majesty's secret service
to spot this year's brand new batch of movie clunkers.
They're for your eyes only and, believe me, Dr No...one will...
Sorry, I'm not going to do this for the whole show.
When I said I want a James Bond style opening, I thought you'd
give me fast cars, exotic locations and beautiful women,
not a dodgy tux and bad puns.
What, The Man With The Golden Pun? Yeah, very strong.
Yeah, great. That's it, forget it. That's the last straw.
Get Keith Lemon!
That's better. There'll be no more of that nonsense.
Instead, we're going to review clip after clip
of the greatest movie mistakes from this year's films
and my word is my bond.
Don't sequels just do your head in?
It seems that, nowadays, people can't just let a good thing happen
without exploiting it over and over again.
Repeating the same tired formula until there's nothing original left.
At least that's what we think here at Movie Mistakes...Three.
Statistically, sequels gross more at the box office
than the first film in a series, so do prequels.
So I've come up with a plan, make the second film first,
then do the first film second, but because you've made the second film
first, the second film, which is in fact the first film,
will technically be a prequel. Ker-ching!
The best thing about sequels is that they get to have subtitles.
Terminator 2, Judgement Day, Babe 2 - Pig In The City,
Garfield 2 - who allowed this to get made.
The foreboding and climactic Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.
Here, the charmingly named Mundungus knocks over a stack of newspapers.
Listen, I panicked...
Daily Prophets everywhere.
But, perhaps a special cleaning spell is used as, later on,
we see the papers are neatly stacked again.
Harry Potter critics say it became a little repetitive towards the end.
-I think that's a bit unfair.
-They're after you, mate.
Oh, hang on, that waitress covers the same piece of ground twice.
What about all the people the wedding?
There she goes...
and there she goes again.
Maybe they had a point after all.
Helena Bonham Carter straddling Emma Watson is a sight to get any
Harry Potter fan-boy hot and bothered, but not like that.
I'm talking about this massive movie clunker.
She goes to carve into her right arm,
then, suddenly, she's attacking her left.
It's awful. There's not even any mud for them to fight in.
Ah, pirates - making alcoholism fun!
It's the boisterous Pirates Of The Caribbean 4.
And, as Geoffrey Rush tilts his hollow leg high to get a drink,
Jack Sparrow wants a taste.
I want one of those.
Sadly, his hands are tied and could never tilt the leg high enough.
Here's to revenge - sweet and clear.
How'd he do that?
It's the flaccid Little Fockers
and here's Jessica Alba dropping off Ben Stiller in a lovely
car with black seats.
-Are you sure you're going to be OK?
Well, it's not him you should worry about, it's your car
because over night...the seats have turned white.
Following the example of Dustin Hoffman's hair.
Oh, it's the atmospheric Paranormal Activity 2.
And there's some spooky goings on in this household.
Oh, keep an eye on the pots and pans hanging from the rack.
Oooh, they keep changing colour and shape.
A poltergeist or cock-up?
You know, it takes so much time and money
to CGI those robots in Transformers,
I'd just not bother putting them in every shot.
I mean, who's going to notice?
Unfortunately, we are!
Keep an eye on this character, Brains, who transforms into
Shame this film can't transform into a good one.
That's what you love about me.
You've got some BLEEP.
It's annoying when there's loads of action going on.
There's never time to shave, is there, Shia Labeouf?
Especially when you're getting attacked by a flying robot.
But, wait a second, he hasn't, has he?
From Shia Labeouf to sheered Labeouf.
You think you're a hero...
It's near the end of transformers and time is tight.
Who's the messenger?
But look at this clock, it's got a mind of it's own.
Starting at 2:20.
It jumps back to 12:15...
..and then back further to 11 o'clock.
It's like Back To The Future, but with robots
and without Michael J Fox.
Actually, forget it, it's nothing like Back To The Future.
Last clip from Transformers and lucky old sheered Labeouf is getting
a snog from his latest supermodel girlfriend.
But take a look at her mucky paws.
I'm going to hold you to that.
They keep changing from clean and over his shoulders,
to dirty and on his face.
The most popular genre of the moment seems to be the superheroes.
Spiderman, Superman, Natalie Port-man, X-men, that's another one.
I've always found their name confusing.
X-men, they're ex-men. So they're women.
If that's the case, I suppose that explains
why I fancy Wolverine so very much.
Everyone is quick to talk about superheroes, but no-one
in interested in the real life heroes.
For me, my hero in life has always been my old English teacher.
He was caring and passionate, a real inspiration to all he taught
and by night, he donned a mask and cape
and went out and fought criminals.
I'll never forget you, Mr Batman.
Now it's time for breakneck action hit X-Men First Class.
But that isn't a history class,
as while they may be flashing back to 1944...
that photo of Einstein was taken in 1947.
Here's James McAvoy as superhero, Professor Xavier.
But every superhero has his weakness and for Xavier, it's windows.
I read the teleporter's mind.
Ouch! He bangs his head against the glass.
Curse you, window, I'll get you next time!
I read the teleporter's mind.
Now, James is rightly thinking twice
about shooting his mate in the head.
But look at the distance the gun is from his head,
it changes with every shot.
That's every shot of the camera, not of the gun, thankfully.
No, I can't.
Now have the animators made an error here? Look at Emma Frost -
she's the one that's a woman.
When she changes from diamonds back to human
her hair style changes.
Here it's loose.
Now tied back.
We don't harm our own kind.
With her hair in that state, she must have been made from uncut diamonds.
On to the let down that was Green Lantern
and this guy is ecstatic because all day, he's been trying to keep
his slippery headphones on his head and now he's finally made them...
Oh. Oh well. Back to the drawing board.
Take a look at Ryan Reynolds brown eyes.
You know, you can't be a pilot if you're colour blind.
Maybe they should have the same rule for casting directors because,
according to this film, when he was younger, he had blue eyes.
It's Ken Branagh's smart take on Thor.
But where's the cock-up?
As Dylan says, the answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind.
Look at that stiff breeze blowing their hair across their faces...
that suddenly disappears... and it returns.
Misquoting Dylan again, let's hope, at that height, they're not sitting on the eves of destruction.
I try, I fail.
I'm going to get everything back.
In this scene, it's tipping it down with rain
and everyone's getting soaking wet.
Apart from the guy from The Hurt Locker,
who keeps a dry face at all times.
With that condition, he must get through a hell of a lot of Nivea.
Thor, again, and an exciting moment where a coffee spills over.
But there's no use crying over it because,
in just a matter of seconds, it goes from being knocked over
to upright again.
Better latte than never.
In my opinion, a good movie always leaves you asking questions.
Who was Keyser Soze?
How did Nice Guy Eddie get shot? And, dude, where is my car?
but this selection of clunkers is so terrible, it will leave you
asking only one question. What were they thinking?
Very geeky comedy with the film Paul, now,
and the invisible alien looks at Nick Frost's passport.
But it should say British citizen and not British subject.
Could be worse, it could be French subject.
That was always my least favourite subject.
He's from another world.
Take a look at the green oven mitt on the wall.
It's about to disappear.
If it makes you feel any better, my existence...
There it goes.
That's the thing about sci-fi films, I mean, the rule book is thrown
out of the window.
# Amazing grace... #
In fact, I bet they did it on purpose.
I bet it represents something like, you know, us,
like, are we really here or are we just...
Oh, never mind, it's back.
Turns out it just represents a mistake they made.
And now fireworks. Remember the code...
That'll put us behind the tree...
..light them at an arms length...
Hey! Watch the fuse!
..stand well back...
That's not funny.
..and take your head torch off twice.
But watch Pegg's head torch. He just lets it vanish.
He's no responsible adult.
Pretentious arty action in Hanna.
Here, Cate Blanchett runs up a flight of stairs in comfy shoes,
dropping her monkey head along the way.
No time to worry about simian head gear, there's a child to chase.
But, apparently, plenty of time to change shoes.
Let's see that again.
Before you can say, "Here come the girls," she's in boots!
Here's Hanna herself and I know what you're thinking,
Hanna was brought up as a trained assassin in isolation
near the arctic circle, so how come she's got pierced ears?
This movie has more holes than Hanna's lobes.
Hanna's having a face-to-face chat with her friend Sophie,
lying on her left hand side.
And here's Sophie who, for some reason,
appears to be also lying on her left side.
So, how are they face-to-face?
I like you.
Look me in the eye and answer me!
I'd like to have a friend.
In the soppy Just Wright,
Scott walks Leslie over to a covered object shaped very much like a car.
She asks what it is and he reveals, to her great surprise...
that it's a car.
No, you didn't!
But keep your eye on the antenna.
It's visible even though the car's covered
and doesn't move with the fabric.
Just WRIGHT?! Just WRONG more, like!
ROBERT WEBB CHUCKLES
Here's the moribund Something Borrowed.
Keep an eye on the girl on the far left fast asleep.
Now she's wide awake and catching up on the latest gossip in Grazia.
Can't have been a very interesting article because, look,
sleeping on the job again. A bit like the continuity editor.
On to the tongue-in-cheek Red now and here's lovely Helen Mirren
but then she could make a cheap plastic watch look glamorous.
Which must be exactly what she's done
as while the necklace sets off the metal detector,
the watch doesn't.
Still with Red and here,
Bruce Willis gets a little help with his handcuffs.
He's handed a key, but wait a second,
the handcuffs aren't even locked.
How much help do you need, Bruce?
Do you want him to tie your shoelaces while he's at it?
You can't beat watching a film in 3D.
Not only do things jump out the screen at you,
but when you get to any rude bits, you can do this. Ho-ho!
3D films are making huge waves at the moment,
but what will be the next step? 4D? 5D?
Here at Movie Mistakes 3, we can reveal the latest
technological advancement that's about to take Hollywood by storm -
I'm about to watch the latest Saw movie. OK!
Turn it off! Turn it off!
I think I'm going to stick to 2D.
Dreary TRON: Legacy now and look at the dangerous driving.
Surely he can't get away with this.
He won't because the police have clocked him with a speed gun.
But the police seem to have failed to spot the fact that everyone
is driving the wrong way down that road.
It's impossible to catch a cab in New York,
so why not let a cab catch you?
Watch out, here come the police.
Here they are.
And here they are again.
Oh, he looks hard(!)
As this poor lady's about to find out.
You don't want to fight him.
Look at the neon strip on her right leg.
He's so tough, he can kick someone's trousers back to front.
See, the strip is on the opposite side...
and her side parting too.
What a guy.
A CGI Jeff Bridges speaks to his army of baddie motorcycle couriers.
There's clearly no-one standing directly in front of him. Look.
But the reflection in his visor suggests he's dead opposite him.
He must have pushed his way to the front.
What a crawler!
Jackass 3D now and those hardcore lunatics
take on one of my biggest fears - self-assembled furniture.
Watch the corner of the room where the plant is,
because in no time at all, they're going to put up...
Jackass 3D is amazing.
It really feels like they're bursting through your telly.
Piranha 3D full of action, gore and mistakes.
Here sheriff Elizabeth Shue falls in a big lake.
Deputy fellow manages to get her out
but moments later, she's bone dry. What a mistake.
They should shoot the sheriff and the deputy for that one.
Now, what's this idiot up to?
You can't put a walkie-talkie in water.
Oi, mate! They're not called swimmie-talkies, are they?
But in Piranha 3D anything can happen, even if it shouldn't.
OK, I'm in.
And the walkie-talkie works perfectly.
'Do you copy?'
The dim-witted Resident Evil: Afterlife
and Milla Jovovich is taking down some baddies.
As most ladies will tell you,
although you may turn up at work in killer heels,
keep a comfy pair of shoes in your bag, just in case you have to...
you know, run up a wall.
But like any good hero, she wants to be buried in her boots
and her heels are back on.
Now, this chap has a gun trained on Milla.
Stop right there.
And this other bloke looks nasty.
There's no way out of this one.
If only the gunman was as close enough to kick as those knives.
Oh, now he is!
Well, it was either that or grow telescopic legs.
They say you should never meet your heroes,
which I guess is why no-one ever comes up to me in the street
and tells me how much they love my work.
Thanks, guys. That means a lot(!)
Everytime someone crosses the street to avoid meeting me,
I think to myself, "There goes a true fan."
The hard-boiled and vicious Mechanic goes a bit Weekend At Bernie's
as Jason Statham covers up his killing by making the corpse
swim a few more lengths.
But look at his grip on the dead man's wrists.
It should clearly be visible from above,
but it's not.
What would Bernie say?
Well, nothing. He's dead.
Angelina Jolie in the disjointed film Salt,
here climbs down a lift shaft.
Just a wait few minutes for the lift, you impatient madam.
Thankfully, she emerges from what must be
a filthy and greasy lift shaft
with a pristine white shirt and clean, spotless skin.
How does she do it?
It's the crackpot action movie Red
and Bruce Willis has kidnapped a lady and taped up her mouth.
But the more she gesticulates, the more we can see that
she has enough movement in her arms to take the tape off.
Maybe if she stopped complaining and thought a second she'd work it out.
I'm a little hungry too.
Moody revenge film Faster now and The Rock hears an eagle call.
# Who's that riding? #
Trouble is, the bird he's seeing is actually a seagull.
Maybe the seagull thinks it'll sound more impressive as an eagle.
A bit like calling yourself "The Rock,"
when your real name is Dwayne.
It's the best actor of his generation, 50 Cent,
in the very flat Blood Out
doing some incredible sunglasses acting.
Look good on you, man.
They do look good on him, don't they?
He should never take them off.
Oh, wait a minute, they've disappeared.
That's awful continuity if you want my 50 cents on the matter.
And now, major movie storyline faults
are reviewed and exposed in Great Pothole Mistakes.
In the spooky and surprising Sixth Sense,
Bruce Willis plays Dr Malcolm Crowe,
a child psychologist who gets shot by a former patient
and, ten months later, befriends a troubled young boy
who can see dead people.
One of whom, it turns out, is Dr Crowe, raising the question
how good a doctor is he that it took him ten months
to diagnose his own death?
Surely there were clues.
Like his wife crying into her dinner for one.
Or when she went to a funeral he wasn't invited to.
Or when she took up starfishing in bed.
And then there must have been his sudden lack of bar presence,
and having is phone cut off and not needing the toilet.
And being able to go to the flicks without paying.
And even if his unrequited sexual advances towards his wife
were nothing new, surely when she made the bed with him still in it
he must have wondered what the blazes was afoot.
"Sorry, I'm still here."
You stole the distinctive autumnal tones of my seminal movie.
Awards - what are they good for?
Plumping up the already inflated egos of pampered performers.
Rewarding someone for doing a job they've already been paid
far too much money to do in the first place.
As if all performers have a pathetic obsession with recognition.
Awards are a complete sham, a massive waste of time
and, as I stated very loudly at this year's Annual Clip Show Awards,
I'm not interested in stupid awards and, yes, we have been passed over
yet again and, yes, I may have been removed by security
for causing a scene, but there is no way that
Animal Foul Ups deserved to win again.
Speaking of awards, here are some Oscar-nominated clips.
Inception - where strange things happen almost without explanation.
That's not the way I deal with things.
Maybe that's how you justify the rain on the window behind Saito.
But there's no rain on DiCaprio.
And the continuity editor is thrown off the building
-for one too many errors.
-What will you do with him?
You'd have thought working on Inception would be a dream job.
Now a maths lesson from revealing biopic The Social Network.
Facebook's run by some of the greatest business minds in the world.
So these numbers will be meticulously crunched.
Let's listen to how their business is divided up.
That represents a 34.4% ownership share.
So Eduardo owns 34.4%.
-You should know that Mark has already taken his percentage from 60 down to 51.
Zuckerberg owns 51%.
Who else is in?
Dustin Moskovitz owns 6.81%,
Sean Parker 6.47% and Peter Thiel 7%.
Would you like to use my pen?
Would you like to use my calculator?
Ooh, the brutal and uncompromising Black Swan now
and check out Natalie Portman's scarf.
Did she kill a white swan to make it?
Anyway, she's about to step through a magical door.
Why is it a magical door?
Because as she steps through it, her scarf's no longer round her neck.
It's like a very low rent Mr Benn.
The Fighter is so full of clangers, it makes me want to hurt someone.
Not Marky Mark obviously, he's a bit tough.
And not Bale, the lunatic!
But Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots would help vent my frustrations.
It's good, Dick. I'm just trying to figure out what's best for me.
Where have they gone? I wasn't going to break them.
I'm sorry, I don't know who you are or why you're taking.
Oh, back now. Well, if you're going to be like that I don't want them.
We're together. Do we need to do this again? Hi, I'm Charlene.
In the emotional King's Speech,
the Monarch struggles with a speech impediment.
However, his missus Queen Bonham Carter has her own struggles.
Her veil keeps moving on its own accord.
First it's down...
..then it's up...
Well, we need to have your hubby pop by.
-Tuesday would be good.
-..then it's down.
They should make a film of that - The Queen's Manic Depressive Veil.
Greetings, bold traveller. Far have you journeyed in the search
of mistakes from the realm of fantasy films and weary must ye be,
but finally ye shall be rewarded with what ye seek.
First I will need drop of monk's wood from the vial of crisal wood
to unlock the spell... Oh, stop this. Just play the clips.
Here are the fantasy film mistakes. Yeah. No, over there.
Over to Narnia and the exciting and epic Voyage Of The Dawn Treader.
Look behind our brave explorers That door is firmly closed. How can they get in?
Oh, it's already open and now we HEAR it opening.
DOOR GRUNDLES OPEN
Narnia's a confusing place. What next, a talking lion?
What's your least favourite season? Autumn? Winter?
Mine is The Season Of The Witch.
That felt longer than both autumn and winter put together.
Now, look at the boy's sword.
Did you spot it? Let's see that again.
Perhaps you can be of service.
The sword swaps hands. Witchcraft, or maybe glitch craft?
The actors in this half-hearted and messy take on Red Riding Hood
must be a bit chilly.
It's clearly the middle of winter,
but everyone's wearing short-sleeved garments.
Rumours that this film was shot on a Saturday night out in Newcastle have yet to be confirmed.
Clint Eastwood's flawed fantasy Hereafter now, and in this scene,
an expert is telling us about the great Charles Dickens.
Over here on this wall we have several illustrations for The Mystery of Edward Drood...
Oh dear. I hate to be a know-it-all,
but I think you'll find it was The Mystery of Edwin Drood, not Edward Drood.
To think I had such great expectations for this film.
This is the film Your Highness,
and this poor, helpless maiden is tied down so tightly she can barely move.
But at the end of the scene, she's able to sit up quite easily whilst still being tied down.
Your Highness, the film that hits an all-time lowness.
Action films now. None of your namby-pamby romance or any of that girly stuff.
Films for blokes, full of explosions and fights and guns.
Films for real men. Real men like me!
Are you talking to me?! Are you talking to me?!
Oh, you are talking to me.
What... We can't have the gun. Health and safety. Oh, OK.
And talking of being sorry,
I got kicked out of my local cinema the other week
after I went up to the lady at the ticket kiosk and told her I was looking for a bit of action.
I only wanted a ticket to see the new Jason Statham film.
Well, that's what I told the police anyway.
It's the ridiculous The Expendables,
where the most expendable thing is that vest.
Sly got on board wearing it...
Now it's off.
He hangs up his guns...
And it's on again.
And then it isn't.
I haven't seen this much vest removal since Take That at Wembley in 1995.
Cockney legend Statham starting some aggro with some sweaty crims.
Here he is pokin' along on his bike in his levver jacket and 'elmet.
That'll take a while to take off.
But in an instant his trouble and strife is strolling away wiv his gear.
Would you Adam and Eve it?
A horrible scene of torture from The Expendables,
but not as horrible as this goof.
MAN SPEAKS IN SPANISH
She gives a defiant kick to her captors...
THEY SPEAK IN SPANISH
However, when she falls, you can see that her legs are tied together.
Maybe the director was too tied up to notice this. Thanks again. Thanks.
Cameron Diaz, in the straightforward and predictable Knight And Day,
is being harassed by this villain in his neat beard.
Wow, that beard could make any self-respecting man jealous.
But not as much as his ability to grow a full beard later that day.
Blimey. I can't even do Movember.
Here's Angelina Jolie as Salt in the far-fetched Salt.
Now, too much salt is bad for you, so let's keep this short.
Here she's brought along an ashtray and a packet of fags.
What about your insides, Salt?
-I need to get to the phone.
-No, no, no.
Someone should really hide them. Oh, they have!
But you can't fool Salt. She finds them again.
Her IQ is as high as her blood pressure.
Looks like Salt's about to get on a bouncy castle.
She knows the rules. No shoes.
That's right. Put them neatly behind you.
But in the CCTV shot, they're scattered all over the place.
No party bag for you!
In this climactic scene, Salt... Spoiler alert!
..kills the Russian president.
And speaking of spoiling things, take a look at the dead pres.
We need a medical crew down in the crypt.
No need to look for a pulse. His eyes can tell you he's totally fine.
They say dead men don't talk, but apparently they do blink.
Now, this is the melodramatic Sanctum,
and you'll need to watch very carefully.
Something the director failed to do when they picked a stuntman.
Look, a watch in this shot and no watch during the stunt.
I wouldn't give this movie the time of day.
I always thought that box office number ones
were what the staff at the multiplex did when they had too many fizzy drinks.
It turns out I was just wrong about that.
Anyway, the mistakes you're about to see are all from movies which raked in the most money
and were Top of the Pops in the week of their release.
Rumours that Fast Five only got there through charging £250 a ticket are unsubstantiated.
It's the mawkish Due Date, and Robert Downey Jr's looking cool.
Peter... OK, listen.
He's even got those light-sensitive sunglasses.
Though this scene must have been filmed on a very changeable day,
as his glasses go from very dark to...
-I just didn't want to go...
Proof that the director also needed specs.
We say a deathly hallow to Harry Potter and chums
in this lively scene where they're transported from a fiery tent...
to the safety of...
But look again.
Harry's is on Hermione's left and Ron on her right.
But when they reappear, it's the other way round.
In this gory scene from the disappointing Little Fockers,
Ben Stiller slices straight through his finger,
making Bobby De Niro Bloody De Niro.
THEY ALL SCREAM
But there's blood on the right side of his face when earlier it was all over his left.
That's not just blood on your face, Bobby. There's egg on it too.
The Expendables, and Sly Stallone's got a gun ready to use
in an exciting escape from some bad men.
I worry that these days Sly's mind is not what it used to be.
Look, he's forgotten that he should be holding the gun,
not having it in his belt.
But once Statham shouts the magic words, the gun's back...
for Sly to throw away.
A clever scene from Transformers
with real footage of President Nixon on the TV.
And they've carefully recreated the set to match it.
However, was it too much of a push to get a lamp?
It's here but not here.
No, that would've been a giant leap too far.
Fast paced sci-fi thrills in Limitless,
and for a man with no limits,
Bradley Cooper really struggles with the little things.
Like sitting down on a chair properly.
Oh, come on, don't cry. Look, the chair's back up again!
You can have another go!
My mother always used to say,
"Never fly-kick a man with a massive hammer in the face."
Sadly, Mila's mum didn't, which is bad news,
because this man is going to hit Mila with the massive hammer.
However, it's not all bad, because at least he hit her into a nice, soft bouncy wall.
See? Every hammer has a silver lining.
Now this girl's in pursuit.
She slides underneath, shooting him as she goes.
Look, that hammer's going to land on her!
Phew. Saved by a continuity error.
MC Hammer snuffs it and she's not even there.
Adrenalin-pumping Fast Five now, and when robbing a bank,
attention to detail really counts.
Here the safe's unlocked with a right-hand print.
Young Mia then goes to extreme measures,
grabbing his print on her bikini.
But it's the left hand.
That shouldn't work, then. Caught you red-handed AND red-faced!
-So did he just slap that
-or did he grab and hold onto it?
The only thing that keeps me on the edge of my seat more than
watching a good thriller is a really, really small seat.
I love a good thriller - it's my favourite genre of film.
It's also a Michael Jackson album title.
I also like films that are bad, dangerous or simply off the wall!
Now the fraught and claustrophobic Buried.
Here, Ryan Reynolds unties his hands and removes the gag around his neck.
But then out of nowhere...
..the gag's back around his neck!
For a film full of gags, it's just not funny.
Now Ryan grabs a pen and writes with his left hand.
But when the shot changes, it's suddenly his right.
So as well as being a big Hollywood star, he's also ambidextrous!
Talk about buried talent!
It's the gripping and gritty film The Town.
The thing about towns nowadays is that businesses can change
so quickly, can't they?
Look at the bar across the road from this flower shop.
-It's called Fitzgerald's, right?
I have this.
Well, not any more, because we see the bar is now called The Junction.
Sounds like a naff gastropub to me.
Matthew McConaughey in the solidly crafted Lincoln Lawyer.
-Get the hell out of my house.
-Take that, M Dog!
I told you my son didn't kill...
Lucky it was his left arm so he can shoot right back at her.
Oh, hang on, that's his right arm in the sling.
Sue the doctors for malpractice, Matthew,
and then get a better lawyer than yourself to represent you.
I thought I told you to be careful.
Onto the intriguing Adjustment Bureau
and Matt Damon has a phone in his coffee.
Personally I prefer milk and sugar.
-'You won't believe who I just ran into?'
-'The girl from...'
But what's this? Moments later, he's talking on a different phone.
The one you kissed?
-However, keep watching as during the same conversation...
-It won't work again.
-..he's back on the BlackBerry.
And you didn't write it?
Now Matt's looking at an article so good they've printed it twice.
See, it's the same chunk of text here and here.
How lazy to just repeat the same thing over again.
How lazy to just repeat the same thing over again.
It's torturous suspense flick The Resident.
And weirdo Max has snuck into Juliet's bedroom to get some
kind of creepy thrill from not quite touching her.
However, the really odd bit is Juliet lying on her side...
then instantly she's on her back.
You've been out-weirded, Max!
Go back home and count your toenail clippings collection.
Oh, no! It's 8:27am and Juliet's overslept.
Hurry up, Juliet, get your trousers on. It's awful when you oversleep.
You just can't get your brain into gear.
And Juliet's not got her brain into gear as she's making a call
when her phone is clearly still locked.
I seriously overslept.
Now, an abysmal film,
The Roommate, where the roommates in question take a photo of themselves.
That shot will look great on the shared house wall.
Shame they get a different picture from the wrong angle then.
And if they can't agree on that, it'll be murder
when they do the cleaning rota.
It's the contrived mystery movie Unknown.
And here's an quick science lesson - what happens when you use something
that gives out an electric shock on something that's soaking wet?
A nasty electric shock for everyone concerned.
However, concern is not something these ambulance men seem to have.
In Unknown, Diane Kruger gets knocked unconscious with chloroform.
But when one of her eyes is opened to check she's out, the other one opens as well.
Blink and you'd miss it.
Wink and you'd be better for the part than Diane.
And now another movie storyline's faults are reviewed
and exposed in Great Plothole Mistakes.
In the exhausting action-packed thrill-fest
that is Raiders of the Lost Ark,
it's 1936 and celebrated archaeologist Dr Indiana Jones
is approached by army intelligence.
They tell him that Hitler's obsession with the occult has led him to seek the Ark of the Covenant,
a sacred relic containing the wrath of God.
In our version, Indy says, "Listen, guys, I just got back from Peru.
"I've been chased by a massive ball. I'm shattered.
"I've got lots of post to open, the garden's been neglected
"and this hat needs dry cleaning. I might give this one a miss."
"But the Ark of the Covenant, Dr Jones!" "Yeah, you know what?
"It won't make much difference whether I go or not."
So while Indy stays at home and gets his stuff sorted,
the Nazis get the Ark undisturbed,
transport it from Egypt all the way back to Berlin where
a triumphant Fuhrer pops the lid in front of his evil acolytes.
"Oh, goody!" And it melts his stupid face off, averting World War II.
Comedy now. People have a lot of theories about comedy.
They say tragedy plus time equals comedy.
But Bambi came out years ago and every time I watch it,
I bawl my eyes out. But then my mother was a deer.
They also say it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.
No wonder I felt so exhausted watching Cheaper By The Dozen 2.
But most importantly, they say the secret of comedy is timing.
Knowing the exact moment to say something hilarious.
Actually, thinking about it, timing isn't quite as important as having something funny to say.
It's quirky and unusual Cedar Rapids where Tim is staying 112.
It's strange then that when Dean arrives, he says...
Double stock my minibar, please, 1019. Thank you.
Because, look, he's also staying in 112 with Tim and also Ronald.
Someone in 1019 is going to get a nice surprise.
Now notice all the climbers on the wall with Tim are securely
tied on with ropes and harnesses to avoid falling off.
Or suddenly inexplicably vanishing.
Low brow and proud of it, it's Hall Pass
and I do wish that that guy would stop flashing his chest about.
His shirt agrees and has taken it upon itself to button up.
It's one of those self-fastening shirts.
The trouble with those is that they've got a habit of...
-Yeah, it's unbuttoned again.
-I gotta get going.
We have a team meeting in 20 minutes.
Best do it up yourself, yeah, fella.
Sam Jackson and The Rock are wearing no ordinary medals
in this frantic comedy, The Other Guys, they're mood medals.
And we'd do it again and again.
They disappear when they get angry.
-If we want to hear you talk, I will shove my arm up your
and work your mouth like a puppet! You hear me?! You hear me?
And reappear when they're happy again. See?
Either that or someone's been "medalling" - thanks - with the props.
A police officer must always know where his gun is.
However, Will Ferrell has forgotten his golden rule -
he's rolling around on top of it.
Only for it to return to his holster moments later.
Here, Will Ferrell is in a violent rage with Alan Partridge.
They say you can't reproduce truly great art,
but when Will takes this mediocre squiggle off the wall,
an exact reproduction immediately takes its place.
The very raw comedy Horrible Bosses.
Jamie Foxx is given a suitcase full of money.
Well, a bit of money.
Anyway, he'd best latch the suitcase all the same. Good man.
But spool forward a bit...
and the latches are undone again.
With all that cash, you'd think he'd be able to buy a better suitcase.
One of my favourites, Big Momma 3, with an angry woman
covered in white foam making a mess of the door.
-Never mind. Here's Big Momma's peerless acting skills.
-Well, thank you, sure.
-But who's cleaned up that door?
What a shame. This silly blunder ruins an otherwise perfect film(!)
Historical movies are a personal favourite of mine.
I often picture myself cast in a lavish version of a classic Jane Austen movie -
Mr Darcy in a drenched shirt, open to the waist,
climbing out of the water, whilst watching, in anticipation,
dressed in a gorgeous bodice, holding a parasol, there I am.
"Oh, Mr Darcy!" That's how I'd do it.
Oscar fodder with the classy remake of True Grit.
And times sure were tough in 19th-century Texas.
Unless, that is, you're the heroine Mattie Ross
and you have the amazing ability to go from soaking wet...
..to bone dry in ten seconds flat.
Consumer issues now and here,
Jeff Bridges shows his disgust with the corn bread
in his bargain bucket
by spilling them out of the bag and shooting them.
Luckily, it's Colonel Sanders' disappearing corn -
it's nowhere to be seen.
Well, he won't have to waste any more precious bullets.
A ropey gaff now. See that chap hanging around in the branches?
One minute he's top of the tree, next he's swinging a lot lower.
How Jeff Bridges doesn't twig, I'll never know.
Frivolous grave robbing jokery with Burke and Hare,
and here's Simon Pegg chatting up her off of Home & Away.
-When will I be able to see you again, Jenny?
-At the Lyceum Theatre.
-When we put...
Maybe in 55 years' time, when the Lyceum Theatre is actually built.
-That's certainly one way to ditch a guy.
Burke and Hare are chopping down a tree to stop a coach.
And who's inside? Urgh!
If I saw a coach with Michael Winner inside, I wouldn't want to stop it.
But they've only made a tiny dent at chest height.
Come on, put your back into it!
However, this being the crazy world of true life drama, the entire tree comes tumbling down.
Uh-oh. The winner takes a fall.
-Hmm, that table looks a little bare.
I know what's missing - she forgot the flowers.
Oh, there they are.
-Bit of an odd side dish, though.
Here's BAFTA-winning actor Tom Wilkinson
unveiling my nominees for the best actor in the movie Burke and Hare.
But which corpse wins? None of them!
The award goes to the incredible moving blanket.
First the corpses are uncovered -
quick round of applause -
then one of them is covered up again.
A bravura performance!
Solving a crime, sir.
The cream of British talent drops some home-grown blunders here.
What on earth are you talking about?
There's Ronnie Corbett - not a mistake, he actually is that small.
I don't know what this little man is trying to prove.
-Stephen Merchant plays goldfish bowl holder 4.
-I want him removed.
-It is you, sir!
-And now Tim Curry, co-starring with his teeth.
But ignore them and watch his background. He steps forward.
But look, the background remains the same,
suggesting he didn't step forward at all.
We shall all have to pay the price.
And now Merchant's bowl has disappeared.
And to think he was chief bowl holder at the RSC. What an insult!
Rip-roaring Roman caper The Eagle now and this looks like such
an arduous journey it would give anyone a shock.
It certainly did to Jamie Bell's horse who overnight changes
colour from brown to white with no explanation.
The dark and brutal Killer Inside Me
starring Casey Affleck as a deputy sheriff-cum-homicidal maniac.
Ho-hum, you might think.
But I feel anguish and I'm sorry.
But look all of a sudden, he's clutching a thick wooden plank!
Superb uncredited cameo from his brother Ben.
When a film is described as "cultural,"
that probably means it hasn't got a good enough story to be popular,
so it's being passed off as art.
"Mm, yes, it's supposed to be boring! That's the point!"
You can explain away all kinds of things using the art house excuse.
Shaky cameras - it's art.
Gaping plot holes - it's art.
Pretentious acting - that's just Natalie Portman,
there's nothing we can do about that now.
Some films are pure entertainment.
Others go a little deeper and ask questions like, "Why are we here,
"in the cinema watching another M Night Shyamalan film?"
Natalie Portman's in need of a champagne top-up, I think,
in creepy ballet melodrama Black Swan.
..appreciated presence on our stage.
But being so freaked out by Winona Ryder giving her evils, none of us notice that,
by the end of the scene, the flute is full to the brim again.
Next up, here's It's Kind Of A Funny Story,
a One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest for Justin Bieber fans.
And suicidal Craig has to give up all potentially harmful items.
Your belt and shoelaces.
-So his belt and shoelaces are gone.
-We can't take chances.
But later on, Craig and another patient Bobby are shooting hoops
with draw-stringed trackie bottoms
and very laced-up shoes. That basket ball's probably
-a cyanide gobstopper.
-Don't play dumb with me.
Now, slow-moving alien thriller Monsters and our couple's being
fleeced by a man who'd get Anne Robinson frothing at the mouth.
Um, how much?
That will be 5,000 colones.
-So that's 5,000 Costa Rican colones.
That will be 5,000 colonies.
-Yeah, yeah, 5,000.
-5,000 is a lot of money.
-Yes, I know, but...
Oh, it's now 5,000? Big mistake.
At the current exchange rate, 5,000 is...
No wonder this film had no cash for the special effects.
Monsters again and this completely deserted town
isn't quite as deserted as it seems.
Now, before you cower behind the sofa, take another look.
It seems the ali-ons prefer pick-up trucks to spaceships
when they pop to the shop for a pint of milk and a family-sized Galaxy.
Here's feisty teen Ree in gritty drama Winter's Bone.
This confrontation looks like
it'll get pretty tense as the gloves are well and truly off.
No, hang on, they're back on again.
Phew, looks like all will be fine after all.
No, wait, they're off again! Oh, make your mind up, love.
Thanks for watching Great Movie Mistakes.
I hope we haven't completely taken the shine off your favourite films this year,
but for all the little mistakes we've just pointed out,
there's hours and hours of movie footage
where they don't make any mistakes at all.
But if you want to watch them, you'd probably better
download them ilegally online. Bye!
