Welcome to Great Movie Mistakes III.

0:00:260:00:29

That's right, we're a trilogy,

0:00:290:00:31

which hopefully means we'll get our own over-priced box sets soon.

0:00:310:00:34

Now, I know what you're thinking -

0:00:340:00:36

the third part of a trilogy has a certain reputation.

0:00:360:00:39

Godfather Part III, Back To The Future III,

0:00:390:00:41

Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves...

0:00:410:00:43

They all have a reputation for being my favourite part

0:00:430:00:46

of the whole trilogy.

0:00:460:00:47

So, how have we made this instalment bigger,

0:00:470:00:50

better and more impressive than the other two?

0:00:500:00:52

Well, how does this sound?

0:00:520:00:54

CGI technology, car chases, romantic interests,

0:00:540:00:57

a bit where the building folds in on itself, like in Inception?

0:00:570:01:01

Well, according to our producers, it sounds too expensive.

0:01:010:01:04

So instead, we'll just stick to our perfectly OK formula

0:01:040:01:07

of reviewing all the movie mistakes we've spotted

0:01:070:01:10

from the top movies released since we last saw you.

0:01:100:01:14

Why does Hollywood love remakes so much?

0:01:160:01:19

Well, sometimes a film is so close to being brilliant

0:01:190:01:21

but there's just one tiny thing that stops it being perfect,

0:01:210:01:25

like it's foreign, or it was made over ten years ago.

0:01:250:01:27

Things that stop anyone in their right mind wanting to watch it.

0:01:270:01:30

The other reason to remake a movie is if the original didn't quite get it right.

0:01:300:01:35

Who didn't think that Get Carter was improved by the addition of Sylvester Stallone?

0:01:350:01:39

Or that The Italian Job was crying out for a cameo by Marky Mark?

0:01:390:01:42

I, for one, can't wait for next year's summer blockbuster,

0:01:420:01:46

Citizen Kane...

0:01:460:01:47

with Miley Cyrus.

0:01:470:01:48

Mm.

0:01:480:01:50

The needless, over-the-top A-Team movie,

0:01:520:01:55

and maybe they should give up this soldiers-of-fortune malarkey

0:01:550:01:59

and become baggage handlers. Watch the case by the side of BA.

0:01:590:02:03

I want to kill you, man.

0:02:030:02:04

You're not going to kill me! I'm going to kill YOU!

0:02:040:02:07

It's now behind his head...

0:02:070:02:09

I got two guns here.

0:02:090:02:10

..then on the other side.

0:02:110:02:14

It moves around more than Hannibal's wig did in the old series.

0:02:140:02:18

Whoopsie!

0:02:180:02:19

Loyal fans of The A-Team had problems with the remake,

0:02:210:02:25

and this must have got their blood boiling.

0:02:250:02:27

Look, they've misspelled Murdock's name!

0:02:270:02:30

It's D-O-C-K, not D-O-C-H.

0:02:300:02:33

I pity the fool who made that mistake.

0:02:330:02:36

Saying that, I also pity the person

0:02:360:02:38

who still cares so much about The A-Team.

0:02:380:02:41

At the end of the instantly forgettable Mechanic remake,

0:02:460:02:49

Ben Foster selects a jazz record to play on the posh turntable.

0:02:490:02:53

Ah! I love a bit of free form experimental jazz.

0:02:530:02:57

CLASSICAL MUSIC PLAYS

0:02:570:03:01

Hang on! It's ruddy Shubert's Trio Number Two!

0:03:010:03:04

But it definitely says "Jazz" on the cover.

0:03:060:03:10

Right, back to HMV.

0:03:100:03:12

Gulliver's Travels with Jack Black,

0:03:140:03:18

perfect casting, as the book was all about a loveable,

0:03:180:03:20

immature, rock-loving idiot.

0:03:200:03:22

Cos he called it a "mandate", so...

0:03:220:03:23

The kind of character that doesn't know his right hand from his left.

0:03:230:03:27

-..bushy-tailed for the boys.

-The right...

0:03:270:03:29

Now the left.

0:03:290:03:31

Jonathan Swift can rest easy that his work is in safe,

0:03:310:03:34

but confused hands.

0:03:340:03:36

We just got here.

0:03:360:03:38

In the final scene, Gulliver returns from his travels

0:03:400:03:42

and gains this girlfriend.

0:03:420:03:45

When I returned from my travels, all I gained was a case of the trots.

0:03:450:03:49

But what has she got to hide?

0:03:490:03:52

Her ID is the wrong way round...

0:03:520:03:55

Danke schon.

0:03:550:03:56

..then it flips...

0:03:560:03:57

Mark. I'm just the new guy in the mailroom...

0:03:570:04:01

..now it's hidden again. Hm...mysterious.

0:04:010:04:04

Some films just don't know when to quit making mistakes.

0:04:060:04:10

In the end credits for Gulliver's Travels,

0:04:100:04:12

check out the date on this newspaper.

0:04:120:04:15

June 20th to June 3rd?

0:04:150:04:18

Someone obviously feels like time was moving backwards

0:04:180:04:21

when they were watching this film. I didn't.

0:04:210:04:24

Off to Jellystone Park for the charmless Yogi Bear movie.

0:04:260:04:30

Booboo has handcuffed Yogi to a tree.

0:04:300:04:33

But keep an eye on which paw the handcuff is on.

0:04:330:04:36

First it's his right paw,

0:04:370:04:40

then it's his left paw,

0:04:400:04:43

then his right paw again.

0:04:430:04:45

Either way, it's very PAW indeed.

0:04:450:04:47

Next up, we're looking at teen movies, which, for a man only

0:04:490:04:52

recently out of his teens - that's right - is exactly my thing.

0:04:520:04:55

PHONE RINGS

0:04:550:04:57

They're cool, wicked and totally radical. Oh, excuse me.

0:04:570:05:00

Oh, hey, Dazza. Yeah. What's up, dude?

0:05:010:05:05

Yeah, I would love to come down the rec and skateboard with you.

0:05:050:05:08

-Hang on. Mum, I'm going down the rec with Dazza.

-No, you're not.

0:05:080:05:13

-Not until you've finished hosting the show.

-But Mum!

-No buts.

0:05:130:05:17

Can't come out. See you tomoz.

0:05:170:05:19

-MUMBLING: Here are some classic goofs from teen films.

-Say it nicely.

0:05:220:05:27

UP-BEAT: Here are some classic goofs from teen films.

0:05:270:05:30

I saw that.

0:05:310:05:32

Next, in the light-hearted Easy A, Olive shows this boy what's what

0:05:360:05:40

by crushing an ice-cream cone in front of his face.

0:05:400:05:44

But the cone instantly reappears. Here today, cone tomorrow.

0:05:440:05:49

Now, watch Olive trying to take off her left boot

0:05:530:05:55

Is that lavender? It's pretty.

0:05:550:05:58

Which becomes her right boot, then she takes off her right boot again,

0:05:580:06:02

but somehow she's removed both her boots!

0:06:020:06:05

A clear example of two rights making a wrong.

0:06:050:06:09

In energetic Step Up 3D, it's the dance battle.

0:06:120:06:15

And as any B-boy knows, things get hot on the dance floor,

0:06:150:06:20

which is why the guy who's with those men pretending to be dogs

0:06:200:06:23

keeps taking his coat off.

0:06:230:06:25

Now you see it...

0:06:270:06:28

Now you don't.

0:06:280:06:30

Reminds me of my Nan's 80th. That was a lively affair.

0:06:300:06:34

Another one from Step Up, and take a look at Moose's bag,

0:06:370:06:41

because it's only on in the shots from behind.

0:06:410:06:44

Yeah, I mean I...

0:06:440:06:46

I'm a double major...

0:06:460:06:47

Now, I know it's a backpack,

0:06:470:06:49

but you'd still see the strap on the front, right?

0:06:490:06:51

Yes?

0:06:510:06:52

What do you mean, you can't believe it?

0:06:520:06:55

It's Submarine, a reflective film about a son

0:06:570:07:00

trying to smooth out the creases in his parents' relationship.

0:07:000:07:04

And by the looks of things,

0:07:060:07:07

he's also smoothing out the creases in this drawing.

0:07:070:07:11

See? The fold's gone.

0:07:110:07:13

No need to set it on fire, though!

0:07:130:07:16

Oh! Kids!

0:07:160:07:18

Finally, a flashback scene in the worthless Twilight sequel, Eclipse.

0:07:200:07:25

Now, clothes in those days were made to last.

0:07:250:07:30

Look at that!

0:07:300:07:31

She stabs right through her dress and it doesn't even rip.

0:07:310:07:35

You don't get that kind of quality at Primark, do you?

0:07:350:07:38

When a film is described as "cultural,"

0:07:400:07:42

that probably means it hasn't got a good enough story to be popular,

0:07:420:07:46

so it's being passed off as art.

0:07:460:07:48

"Mm, yes, it's supposed to be boring! That's the point!"

0:07:480:07:51

You can explain away all kinds of things using the art house excuse.

0:07:510:07:55

Shaky cameras - it's art.

0:07:550:07:56

Gaping plot holes - it's art.

0:07:560:07:58

Pretentious acting - that's just Natalie Portman,

0:07:580:08:00

there's nothing we can do about that now.

0:08:000:08:02

Some films are pure entertainment.

0:08:020:08:05

Others go a little deeper and ask questions like, "Why are we here,

0:08:050:08:08

"in the cinema watching another M Night Shyamalan film?"

0:08:080:08:12

Natalie Portman's in need of a champagne top-up, I think,

0:08:140:08:17

in creepy ballet melodrama Black Swan.

0:08:170:08:20

..appreciated presence on our stage.

0:08:200:08:22

But being so freaked out by Winona Ryder giving her evils, none of us notice that,

0:08:220:08:27

by the end of the scene, the flute is full to the brim again.

0:08:270:08:30

To beauty.

0:08:300:08:32

Next up, here's It's Kind Of A Funny Story,

0:08:340:08:39

a One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest for Justin Bieber fans.

0:08:390:08:42

And suicidal Craig has to give up all potentially harmful items.

0:08:420:08:47

Your belt and shoelaces.

0:08:470:08:48

-So his belt and shoelaces are gone.

-We can't take chances.

0:08:480:08:53

But later on, Craig and another patient Bobby are shooting hoops

0:08:540:08:58

with draw-stringed trackie bottoms

0:08:580:09:00

and very laced-up shoes. That basketball's probably

0:09:000:09:04

-a cyanide gobstopper.

-Don't play dumb with me.

0:09:040:09:08

Now, slow-moving alien thriller Monsters and our couple's being

0:09:100:09:14

fleeced by a man who'd get Anne Robinson frothing at the mouth.

0:09:140:09:18

Um, how much?

0:09:180:09:19

That will be 5,000 colones.

0:09:190:09:22

-5,000?

-Yeah, 5,000.

-So that's 5,000 Costa Rican colones.

0:09:220:09:26

That will be 5,000 colones.

0:09:260:09:28

-5,000?

-Yeah, yeah, 5,000.

0:09:280:09:30

-5,000 is a lot of money.

-Yes, I know, but...

0:09:300:09:33

Oh, it's now 5,000? Big mistake.

0:09:330:09:37

At the current exchange rate, 5,000 is...

0:09:370:09:40

No wonder this film had no cash for the special effects.

0:09:440:09:48

Monsters again and this completely deserted town

0:09:510:09:55

isn't quite as deserted as it seems.

0:09:550:09:58

Now, before you cower behind the sofa, take another look.

0:09:580:10:01

It seems the ali-ons prefer pick-up trucks to spaceships

0:10:040:10:06

when they pop to the shop for a pint of milk and a family-sized Galaxy.

0:10:060:10:12

Here's feisty teen Ree in gritty drama Winter's Bone.

0:10:140:10:18

This confrontation looks like

0:10:180:10:21

it'll get pretty tense as the gloves are well and truly off.

0:10:210:10:24

No, hang on, they're back on again.

0:10:250:10:28

Phew, looks like all will be fine after all.

0:10:310:10:34

No, wait, they're off again! Oh, make your mind up, love.

0:10:360:10:39

So often with films, the stars get the awards,

0:10:410:10:44

but what about those people behind the scenes? How do they get noticed?

0:10:440:10:48

They could become the best in their field or work their way up to become a famous director.

0:10:480:10:52

Or they could just stand in the back of shot.

0:10:520:10:54

Well, that's exactly what we're awarding now -

0:10:540:10:57

those people who went that extra distance

0:10:570:10:59

from out-of-shot to into shot.

0:10:590:11:01

What?

0:11:030:11:04

It's the Great Movie Mistakes Award for Best Supporting Actor,

0:11:070:11:10

and here are the nominations.

0:11:100:11:13

Lightweight action from Knight And Day and some great scene stealing.

0:11:130:11:17

Look at the security guards behind Cameron Diaz.

0:11:170:11:20

They suddenly change into normal civilians

0:11:220:11:26

and then back into security guards at the top of the escalator.

0:11:260:11:30

Maybe they were just working undercover for a bit.

0:11:310:11:34

If you've got a problem, maybe you can hire The A-Team,

0:11:400:11:44

to clean your windows, because...

0:11:440:11:46

Let's go back.

0:11:460:11:48

Mr T has got that window so clean,

0:11:480:11:51

you can see the cameraman's own reflection in it.

0:11:510:11:54

A blatant and unwelcome cameo. A bit like the movie.

0:11:560:11:59

In seen-it-all-before thriller The Resident,

0:12:030:12:07

Jack returns to his flat and senses all is not right.

0:12:070:12:11

If it the presence of a ghostly character?

0:12:110:12:14

Or just the reflection of the clumsy cameraman in his kitchen window?

0:12:140:12:19

Time to move out, if you ask me, Jack.

0:12:190:12:22

Who are you texting?

0:12:240:12:26

It's crazy horror comedy Vampires Suck

0:12:260:12:28

and Alice gets a mobile phone right in the face.

0:12:280:12:32

Now, either Edward is a very good shot or someone just off camera

0:12:320:12:38

is throwing a mobile phone right in her face.

0:12:380:12:40

There, thrown from point-blank range.

0:12:410:12:45

That's a bit "phoney"!

0:12:450:12:47

But the winner is Man In Shorts.

0:12:510:12:54

It's the climax of the testosterone-dripping Expendables

0:12:540:12:58

and all hell is breaking loose.

0:12:580:13:01

Everyone's running for their lives,

0:13:010:13:03

but hold on, who's this fellow in Bermuda shorts with the camcorder?

0:13:030:13:07

A very unfortunate tourist?

0:13:070:13:11

Next year, I'd stick to Rhyl. There's fewer explosions.

0:13:110:13:14

OK, time for bed. Goodnight!

0:13:180:13:20
