Hello, I'm Robert Webb and welcome to another Great Movie Mistakes.

0:00:270:00:31

In this show, we'll be reviewing the top movies released since

0:00:310:00:34

the last Movie Mistakes and pointing out the continuity disasters.

0:00:340:00:39

And, by the way, to everyone that wrote in about The King's Speech,

0:00:390:00:42

he doesn't keep fluffing his lines.

0:00:420:00:45

I always thought that box office number ones

0:00:480:00:50

were what the staff at the multiplex did when they had too many fizzy drinks.

0:00:500:00:54

It turns out I was just wrong about that.

0:00:540:00:58

Anyway, the mistakes you're about to see are all from movies which raked in the most money

0:00:580:01:02

and were top of the pops in the week of their release.

0:01:020:01:05

Rumours that Fast Five only got there through charging £250 a ticket are unsubstantiated.

0:01:050:01:11

It's the mawkish Due Date, and Robert Downey Jr's looking cool.

0:01:140:01:19

Peter... OK, listen.

0:01:190:01:23

He's even got those light-sensitive sunglasses.

0:01:230:01:25

Though this scene must have been filmed on a very changeable day,

0:01:250:01:28

as his glasses go from very dark to...

0:01:280:01:31

-I just didn't want to go...

-..completely gone.

0:01:320:01:34

Proof that the director also needed specs.

0:01:340:01:37

We say a deathly hallow to Harry Potter and chums

0:01:390:01:43

in this lively scene where they're transported from a fiery tent...

0:01:430:01:48

to the safety of...

0:01:480:01:49

oncoming traffic.

0:01:490:01:51

But look again.

0:01:510:01:52

Harry's is on Hermione's left and Ron on her right.

0:01:520:01:57

But when they reappear, it's the other way round.

0:01:590:02:02

In this gory scene from the disappointing Little Fockers,

0:02:040:02:08

Ben Stiller slices straight through his finger,

0:02:080:02:12

making Bobby De Niro Bloody De Niro.

0:02:120:02:15

THEY ALL SCREAM

0:02:150:02:16

But there's blood on the right side of his face when earlier it was all over his left.

0:02:170:02:22

That's not just blood on your face, Bobby. There's egg on it too.

0:02:240:02:28

The Expendables, and Sly Stallone's got a gun ready to use

0:02:320:02:35

in an exciting escape from some bad men.

0:02:350:02:39

BRAKES SCREECH

0:02:390:02:40

I worry that these days Sly's mind is not what it used to be.

0:02:430:02:48

Look, he's forgotten that he should be holding the gun,

0:02:480:02:51

not having it in his belt.

0:02:510:02:53

But once Statham shouts the magic words, the gun's back...

0:02:530:02:57

for Sly to throw away.

0:02:570:02:59

A clever scene from Transformers

0:03:020:03:04

with real footage of President Nixon on the TV.

0:03:040:03:07

And they've carefully recreated the set to match it.

0:03:070:03:10

However, was it too much of a push to get a lamp?

0:03:100:03:14

It's here but not here.

0:03:140:03:17

No, that would've been a giant leap too far.

0:03:170:03:20

Fast paced sci-fi thrills in Limitless,

0:03:220:03:25

and for a man with no limits,

0:03:250:03:27

Bradley Cooper really struggles with the little things.

0:03:270:03:31

Like sitting down on a chair properly.

0:03:310:03:33

Oh, come on, don't cry. Look, the chair's back up again!

0:03:360:03:39

You can have another go!

0:03:390:03:42

My mother always used to say,

0:03:450:03:48

"Never fly-kick a man with a massive hammer in the face."

0:03:480:03:51

Sadly, Milla's mum didn't, which is bad news,

0:03:510:03:54

because this man is going to hit Milla with the massive hammer.

0:03:540:03:59

However, it's not all bad, because at least he hit her into a nice, soft bouncy wall.

0:03:590:04:05

See? Every hammer has a silver lining.

0:04:060:04:08

Now this girl's in pursuit.

0:04:120:04:15

She slides underneath, shooting him as she goes.

0:04:150:04:18

But wait.

0:04:180:04:20

Look, that hammer's going to land on her!

0:04:200:04:23

Phew. Saved by a continuity error.

0:04:230:04:27

MC Hammer snuffs it and she's not even there.

0:04:270:04:30

Adrenalin-pumping Fast Five now, and when robbing a bank,

0:04:350:04:39

attention to detail really counts.

0:04:390:04:42

Here the safe's unlocked with a right-hand print.

0:04:420:04:45

Young Mia then goes to extreme measures,

0:04:510:04:53

grabbing his print on her bikini.

0:04:530:04:55

But it's the left hand.

0:04:570:05:00

That shouldn't work, then. Caught you red-handed AND red-faced!

0:05:000:05:04

So did he just slap that BLEEP or did he grab and hold onto it?

0:05:040:05:09

The only thing that keeps me on the edge of my seat more than

0:05:110:05:14

watching a good thriller is a really, really small seat.

0:05:140:05:18

I love a good thriller - it's my favourite genre of film.

0:05:180:05:20

It's also a Michael Jackson album title.

0:05:200:05:23

I also like films that are bad, dangerous or simply off the wall!

0:05:230:05:28

HE LAUGHS

0:05:280:05:30

Now the fraught and claustrophobic Buried.

0:05:330:05:37

Here, Ryan Reynolds unties his hands and removes the gag around his neck.

0:05:370:05:42

But then out of nowhere...

0:05:420:05:45

..the gag's back around his neck!

0:05:480:05:51

For a film full of gags, it's just not funny.

0:05:510:05:54

Now Ryan grabs a pen and writes with his left hand.

0:05:580:06:01

But when the shot changes, it's suddenly his right.

0:06:030:06:06

So as well as being a big Hollywood star, he's also ambidextrous!

0:06:060:06:10

Talk about buried talent!

0:06:110:06:13

It's the gripping and gritty film The Town.

0:06:170:06:20

The thing about towns nowadays is that businesses can change

0:06:200:06:24

so quickly, can't they?

0:06:240:06:27

Look at the bar across the road from this flower shop.

0:06:270:06:30

-It's called Fitzgerald's, right?

-I'm in.

0:06:320:06:35

I have this.

0:06:350:06:36

Well, not any more, because we see the bar is now called The Junction.

0:06:360:06:41

Sounds like a naff gastropub to me.

0:06:410:06:44

Matthew McConaughey in the solidly crafted Lincoln Lawyer.

0:06:460:06:51

-Get the hell out of my house.

-Take that, M Dog!

0:06:510:06:53

I told you my son didn't kill...

0:06:530:06:55

Lucky it was his left arm so he can shoot right back at her.

0:06:550:06:57

Oh, hang on, that's his right arm in the sling.

0:07:050:07:09

Sue the doctors for malpractice, Matthew,

0:07:090:07:12

and then get a better lawyer than yourself to represent you.

0:07:120:07:15

I thought I told you to be careful.

0:07:150:07:17

Onto the intriguing Adjustment Bureau

0:07:210:07:24

and Matt Damon has a phone in his coffee.

0:07:240:07:27

Personally I prefer milk and sugar.

0:07:270:07:28

-'You won't believe who I just ran into?'

-Who?

-'The girl from...'

0:07:280:07:31

But what's this? Moments later, he's talking on a different phone.

0:07:310:07:35

The one you kissed?

0:07:350:07:37

-However, keep watching as during the same conversation...

-Whatever, dude.

0:07:370:07:39

-It won't work again.

-..he's back on the BlackBerry.

0:07:390:07:44

And you didn't write it?

0:07:440:07:45

Now Matt's looking at an article so good they've printed it twice.

0:07:480:07:53

See, it's the same chunk of text here and here.

0:07:530:07:58

How lazy to just repeat the same thing over again.

0:07:580:08:01

How lazy to just repeat the same thing over again.

0:08:010:08:04

It's torturous suspense flick The Resident.

0:08:060:08:10

And weirdo Max has snuck into Juliet's bedroom to get some

0:08:100:08:13

kind of creepy thrill from not quite touching her.

0:08:130:08:15

However, the really odd bit is Juliet lying on her side...

0:08:170:08:22

then instantly she's on her back.

0:08:220:08:24

You've been out-weirded, Max!

0:08:240:08:26

Go back home and count your toenail clippings collection.

0:08:260:08:29

ALARM BEEPS

0:08:310:08:32

Oh, no! It's 8:27am and Juliet's overslept.

0:08:320:08:37

Hurry up, Juliet, get your trousers on. It's awful when you oversleep.

0:08:380:08:43

You just can't get your brain into gear.

0:08:430:08:45

And Juliet's not got her brain into gear as she's making a call

0:08:480:08:51

when her phone is clearly still locked.

0:08:510:08:53

I seriously overslept.

0:08:540:08:56

Now, an abysmal film,

0:09:000:09:03

The Roommate, where the roommates in question take a photo of themselves.

0:09:030:09:07

That shot will look great on the shared house wall.

0:09:070:09:09

Shame they get a different picture from the wrong angle then.

0:09:090:09:13

And if they can't agree on that, it'll be murder

0:09:130:09:16

when they do the cleaning rota.

0:09:160:09:18

It's the contrived mystery movie Unknown.

0:09:220:09:25

And here's a quick science lesson - what happens when you use something

0:09:250:09:29

that gives out an electric shock on something that's soaking wet?

0:09:290:09:32

A nasty electric shock for everyone concerned.

0:09:360:09:38

However, concern is not something these ambulance men seem to have.

0:09:380:09:43

In Unknown, Diane Kruger gets knocked unconscious with chloroform.

0:09:460:09:52

But when one of her eyes is opened to check she's out, the other one opens as well.

0:09:520:09:56

Blink and you'd miss it.

0:09:560:09:59

Wink and you'd be better for the part than Diane.

0:09:590:10:01

Comedy now. People have a lot of theories about comedy.

0:10:040:10:09

They say tragedy plus time equals comedy.

0:10:090:10:11

But Bambi came out years ago and every time I watch it,

0:10:110:10:14

I bawl my eyes out. But then my mother was a "dear".

0:10:140:10:18

They also say it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.

0:10:180:10:22

No wonder I felt so exhausted watching Cheaper By The Dozen 2.

0:10:220:10:26

But most importantly, they say the secret of comedy is timing.

0:10:260:10:30

Knowing the exact moment to say something hilarious.

0:10:330:10:36

Actually, thinking about it, timing isn't quite as important as having something funny to say.

0:10:380:10:43

Sorry.

0:10:430:10:45

Junior Suite...

0:10:470:10:49

It's quirky and unusual Cedar Rapids where Tim is staying in 112.

0:10:490:10:54

It's strange then that when Dean arrives, he says...

0:10:540:10:57

Double stock my minibar, please, 1019. Thank you.

0:10:570:11:01

Because, look, he's also staying in 112 with Tim and also Ronald.

0:11:010:11:06

Someone in 1019 is going to get a nice surprise.

0:11:060:11:09

Now notice all the climbers on the wall with Tim are securely

0:11:130:11:17

tied on with ropes and harnesses to avoid falling off.

0:11:170:11:22

Or suddenly inexplicably vanishing.

0:11:220:11:24

Low brow and proud of it, it's Hall Pass

0:11:280:11:31

and I do wish that that guy would stop flashing his chest about.

0:11:310:11:35

His shirt agrees and has taken it upon itself to button up.

0:11:350:11:38

It's one of those self-fastening shirts.

0:11:400:11:42

The trouble with those is that they've got a habit of...

0:11:420:11:46

-Yeah, it's unbuttoned again.

-I gotta get going.

0:11:460:11:49

We have a team meeting in 20 minutes.

0:11:490:11:51

Best do it up yourself, yeah, fella.

0:11:510:11:54

Sam Jackson and The Rock are wearing no ordinary medals

0:11:560:12:01

in this frantic comedy, The Other Guys, they're mood medals.

0:12:010:12:04

And we'd do it again and again.

0:12:040:12:07

They disappear when they get angry.

0:12:070:12:09

If we want to hear you talk, I will shove my arm up your BLEEP

0:12:090:12:12

and work your mouth like a puppet! You hear me?! You hear me?

0:12:120:12:15

And reappear when they're happy again. See?

0:12:150:12:18

Either that or someone's been "medalling" - thanks - with the props.

0:12:180:12:22

A police officer must always know where his gun is.

0:12:250:12:30

However, Will Ferrell has forgotten this golden rule -

0:12:300:12:33

he's rolling around on top of it.

0:12:330:12:35

Only for it to return to his holster moments later.

0:12:360:12:40

Here, Will Ferrell is in a violent rage with Alan Partridge.

0:12:450:12:50

They say you can't reproduce truly great art,

0:12:500:12:52

but when Will takes this mediocre squiggle off the wall,

0:12:520:12:55

an exact reproduction immediately takes its place.

0:12:550:12:59

The very raw comedy Horrible Bosses.

0:13:020:13:05

Jamie Foxx is given a suitcase full of money.

0:13:060:13:10

Well, a bit of money.

0:13:100:13:11

Anyway, he'd best latch the suitcase all the same. Good man.

0:13:110:13:15

But spool forward a bit...

0:13:170:13:19

and the latches are undone again.

0:13:190:13:21

With all that cash, you'd think he'd be able to buy a better suitcase.

0:13:210:13:25

One of my favourites, Big Momma 3, with an angry woman

0:13:270:13:31

covered in white foam making a mess of the door.

0:13:310:13:35

-Never mind. Here's Big Momma's peerless acting skills.

-Me?!

0:13:360:13:40

-Well, thank you, sure.

-But who's cleaned up that door?

0:13:400:13:44

What a shame. This silly blunder ruins an otherwise perfect film(!)

0:13:440:13:49

Films about true life next.

0:13:510:13:54

Films like 127 Hours, a true story of a man stuck in a canyon for days.

0:13:540:13:59

I got stuck on the M25 for what felt like 127 hours once.

0:13:590:14:03

I didn't chop off my own arm, did I? No, I did not!

0:14:030:14:06

I did, however, wee in a Coke bottle,

0:14:060:14:09

eat a family bag of Wotsits and openly cry,

0:14:090:14:12

but apparently, that story's not Hollywood material!

0:14:120:14:15

Tch!

0:14:150:14:17

It's super nerd Mark Zuckerberg, although he can't be that nerdy.

0:14:190:14:24

He's mates with Justin Timberlake.

0:14:240:14:26

Oh, good catch, Justin.

0:14:260:14:28

Sharon?

0:14:290:14:30

SMASH!

0:14:300:14:31

-Oh, no!

-I'm so sorry!

-Mark!

0:14:310:14:34

-Girls can't catch!

-Here you go.

-No, wait!

0:14:340:14:37

Luckily, it was one of those completely empty beer bottles

0:14:380:14:41

kept for situations like this.

0:14:410:14:44

-I'm so sorry.

-Look, no stain on the wall.

0:14:450:14:48

Or maybe Zuckerberg's so rich,

0:14:480:14:50

he can afford beer that tidies up after itself.

0:14:500:14:53

Here's sweaty Christian Bale in the honest and hard-edged The Fighter.

0:14:560:15:00

Look at his T-shirt. Drenched!

0:15:020:15:04

But after a long walk in the sun, the sweat seems to have disappeared.

0:15:070:15:11

What's his antiperspirant?

0:15:130:15:15

Not one with 24-hour protection, as he's drenched again.

0:15:180:15:21

Look at Mark Wahlberg's fit bod as Micky Ward in The Fighter.

0:15:240:15:28

Not a tattoo in sight.

0:15:280:15:30

But cut to him in bed and what's this?

0:15:300:15:34

It's Mark's tat of Bob Marley, which Micky never had in real life.

0:15:340:15:39

Eddy Grant on the inner thigh, though? That's a possibility.

0:15:390:15:43

A young John Lennon with his nasal singing voice

0:15:450:15:48

in the unsentimental Nose-where Boy.

0:15:480:15:51

-Sorry, Nowhere Boy.

-# You're my little girl! #

0:15:510:15:55

But when he stops singing, we see the tape is at the start of the reel

0:15:550:15:58

and the song couldn't have been recorded.

0:15:580:16:01

Which is lucky, as it sounded horrific.

0:16:020:16:05

We had great success...

0:16:070:16:09

A scene from the so-called documentary I'm Still Here

0:16:090:16:13

and look at the glasses hanging off the shirt of Joaquin Phoenix

0:16:130:16:17

or whatever he's called.

0:16:170:16:19

-Look, they've vanished.

-I have a little studio, d'you know?

0:16:190:16:23

Puffy Combs, or whatever he's called, doesn't notice.

0:16:230:16:26

I'm excited to hear this stuff. I want to hear if you...

0:16:260:16:29

And now they're back. Mo sunglasses, mo problems.

0:16:290:16:34

More than seven square miles...

0:16:360:16:38

Harsh realities from Made In Dagenham now,

0:16:380:16:41

a British film harping back to the glorious era

0:16:410:16:44

where 55,000 men worked in a car factory with only 187 women.

0:16:440:16:49

That's because the men knew they were talking about back then.

0:16:490:16:52

-Are you threatening me?

-Let's listen.

0:16:520:16:55

I'm trying to stop 40,000 people from losing their jobs, Mrs Castle.

0:16:550:16:58

That's how many people work as Ford employees in this country, not to mention...

0:16:580:17:02

I thought it was 55,000, you berk? Let the women take over, I say.

0:17:020:17:07

It's raining in Dagenham.

0:17:100:17:12

Look at that poor old guy outside with his brolly.

0:17:120:17:15

He can't wait to get inside in the dry.

0:17:150:17:17

I'm lucky you weren't getting the lads to hold out for a full house.

0:17:170:17:20

Get yourself home, man!

0:17:200:17:22

All over the country...

0:17:220:17:24

Later on and now he must be somewhere nice and warm.
