Hello and welcome to Great Movie Mistakes 2.

0:00:230:00:28

Even more goofs, gaffes, mess-ups and blunders

0:00:280:00:30

that Hollywood's brightest thought we wouldn't notice.

0:00:300:00:34

Wrong! Guess they weren't counting on our crack team of... noticers.

0:00:340:00:39

They've pored over literally hours of film footage to compile

0:00:390:00:42

another classic collection of cinematic clunkers.

0:00:420:00:46

On tonight's show:

0:00:460:00:48

Now, Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island. Shutter Island?

0:00:540:00:58

They should shut down the whole film, there are so many gaffes!

0:00:580:01:02

In this movie thriller, nothing is what it seems.

0:01:020:01:05

Is this an asylum? Are you crazy?

0:01:050:01:07

Am I crazy? I most certainly am!

0:01:070:01:10

Crazy about all the mistakes we've been able to find.

0:01:100:01:12

I'm going to go and put on a straitjacket and get my medication

0:01:120:01:16

from Nursey while you watch these unhinged clangers.

0:01:160:01:20

It's the boat over to Shutter Island,

0:01:200:01:23

a prison for the criminally insane!

0:01:230:01:25

Four people died.

0:01:250:01:26

It was the smoke that got them, not the fire.

0:01:260:01:29

Perhaps a quick cigarette to calm the nerves. There it goes.

0:01:290:01:33

Hang on, pop it in again.

0:01:330:01:35

Maybe I AM the one going insane.

0:01:350:01:39

-A little more prone to seasickness.

-Ah, dehydration.

0:01:410:01:44

-You all right, boss?

-Yeah.

0:01:440:01:45

-In that case, you're right.

-Watch the glass in Leo's hand.

0:01:450:01:48

Swallow it down, Leo.

0:01:480:01:50

When I said swallow, I meant the pill, not the glass as well.

0:01:500:01:55

And one more time.

0:01:550:01:56

Glass, no glass. Crazy!

0:01:560:02:00

There's no way we can cross those rocks.

0:02:020:02:05

Here, Mark Ruffalo ruffles around in his pocket for a bit of paper.

0:02:050:02:08

But in the next shot, he's ruffling around all over again.

0:02:080:02:11

Talk about building your part up, Ruffalo.

0:02:110:02:14

Which they said repeatedly doesn't exist!

0:02:140:02:17

I'm getting to that lighthouse.

0:02:170:02:18

I don't know what this ugly fella's in prison for.

0:02:200:02:23

Perhaps pickpocketing.

0:02:230:02:25

He's certainly able to move his hands without us noticing.

0:02:250:02:28

They're on the top bar...

0:02:280:02:30

-..then the bottom bar.

-But you're wrong, you're wrong.

-Oh?

0:02:330:02:36

Really? Been alone much since you got here?

0:02:360:02:40

-Back on that bar...

-I've been with my partner.

0:02:400:02:43

..back on his head.

0:02:430:02:46

Mental!

0:02:460:02:47

Easy.

0:02:470:02:48

Leo's got Max von Sydow up against a wall.

0:02:500:02:53

What are you going to do, kill me?

0:02:530:02:57

But look at this reverse shot.

0:02:570:02:59

Why is the syringe further away? Where's the wall?

0:02:590:03:03

Why is Leo looking up at him in the right shot,

0:03:030:03:06

but looking down at a shorter man on the left?

0:03:060:03:09

For what? Hm?

0:03:090:03:10

From the back, it looks more like Bruce Forsyth than Max von Sydow.

0:03:100:03:14

Good game, good game.

0:03:140:03:16

Come in out of the rain, lads.

0:03:230:03:25

And now for the greatest mystery of Shutter Island,

0:03:250:03:28

the legend of Ruffalo's disappearing coat.

0:03:280:03:31

Where's it gone?

0:03:310:03:33

Let's see it again.

0:03:330:03:35

Jesus Christ.

0:03:350:03:37

He takes it off. And it's gone.

0:03:370:03:39

I'll have nightmares for weeks.

0:03:390:03:42

Let's talk wardrobe malfunctions.

0:03:440:03:46

And no, I don't mean getting to number 30 on your IKEA instructions

0:03:460:03:49

to find you're missing two screws and an Allen key. I hate you, IKEA.

0:03:490:03:54

I'm talking about costume.

0:03:540:03:55

Marlon Brando supposedly performed without trousers

0:03:550:03:58

to stop directors filming his big belly.

0:03:580:04:00

Demi Moore famously performed topless

0:04:000:04:03

to ensure directors would film her at all.

0:04:030:04:05

But where would we be without costume?

0:04:050:04:08

Naked, and no-one wants to see me naked. Apparently.

0:04:080:04:12

What we do want to see are these terrible costume-based clangers.

0:04:120:04:17

Nobody walks down a street like Brad Pitt,

0:04:170:04:20

and no-one can make their suit jacket vanish like him, either.

0:04:200:04:23

Now you see it, now you don't. That's just the Pitts.

0:04:230:04:28

I missed the part about where my office is.

0:04:300:04:33

If you want to be a successful lawyer,

0:04:330:04:36

you've got to accessorise properly,

0:04:360:04:37

right down to elbow-length gloves and a dog in a hat.

0:04:370:04:40

Then I am going to need a glue gun, some pinking shears...

0:04:400:04:44

Reese Witherspoon takes her gloves off, and...

0:04:440:04:47

-Ooh, they're back on again.

-DOG BARKS

0:04:470:04:49

Even the dog spotted this gaffe.

0:04:490:04:51

Here's Johnny Depp about to be executed

0:04:530:04:55

for crimes against continuity.

0:04:550:04:57

Keep your eye on the hat ribbon.

0:04:570:04:59

The axe man moves it...

0:04:590:05:01

As long as I can get at your neck.

0:05:010:05:02

..and then it's back on the neck again.

0:05:020:05:05

-I'm right behind you.

-Off with his head!

0:05:050:05:09

Ben Stiller is getting all dressed up

0:05:110:05:13

for his first Night at the Museum, but where's his tie?

0:05:130:05:17

Just wanted to say good luck, son.

0:05:170:05:19

And goodbye. We're clocking out for the last time.

0:05:190:05:22

Oh, there it is. Never mind.

0:05:220:05:24

Wait, you guys are going out of town?

0:05:240:05:27

-Hello, Natalie.

-Hello, David. I mean, Sir.

0:05:290:05:31

Now, which tie should Hugh Grant wear to meet EastEnders' Tiffany?

0:05:310:05:35

The one with the big spots...

0:05:350:05:37

I'm so sorry, Sir.

0:05:370:05:38

..or the one with the tiny spots?

0:05:380:05:42

D'you know, I don't care.

0:05:420:05:44

Please, line up on the beach.

0:05:460:05:49

Keep your eyes on the girl in the green dress.

0:05:490:05:53

Men on one line...

0:05:530:05:55

There she is, taking off her shoes.

0:05:550:05:58

But in the next scene, they're back on.

0:05:580:06:01

Oi, love! Take 'em off!

0:06:010:06:03

Remove your mask.

0:06:030:06:04

Ooh, not you.

0:06:040:06:06

In Shallow Hal, Gwyneth Paltrow plays a fatty

0:06:090:06:13

who Jack Black sees as a fitty. Look at her shoes.

0:06:130:06:16

High heels, right?

0:06:160:06:19

Dang it! Rosemary, don't move.

0:06:190:06:21

Is your back all right?

0:06:210:06:22

-Yeah.

-Is she all right? What happened here?

0:06:220:06:25

Yeah. Listen, you got to get some decent chairs in here, man.

0:06:250:06:29

-Do me a favour...

-Just moments later,

0:06:290:06:31

fatty Gwyneth's shoes are completely different and flat,

0:06:310:06:34

just like Jack would be if she sat on him.

0:06:340:06:36

If you took all the women you two have gone out with,

0:06:360:06:38

put 'em together, they wouldn't equal one of her.

0:06:380:06:41

We're not arguing that!

0:06:410:06:43

Down now!

0:06:450:06:46

Pierce Brosnan's furious. No wonder,

0:06:460:06:49

he doesn't know whether to button up his jacket or not.

0:06:490:06:52

Now it's open...

0:06:520:06:53

Good God, you toss that word around...

0:06:530:06:56

..and now it's done up.

0:06:560:06:59

You wouldn't catch Bond making this kind of sartorial gaffe.

0:06:590:07:02

Quentin Tarantino is one of the greatest directors of his generation.

0:07:040:07:09

He's also a very naughty boy. By calling his last film Inglourious Basterds,

0:07:090:07:13

he thought his misspelling would allow him to get away with using a swearword. What a dockhead.

0:07:130:07:18

The film follows the adventures of a group of Nazi-hunters.

0:07:180:07:21

Well, Nazi hunters, our mistake hunters are after you.

0:07:210:07:24

But just because our hunters are hunting Nazi-hunters,

0:07:240:07:27

it doesn't mean we're on the same side as the Nazis. OK? They're not.

0:07:270:07:31

This film is filled with the kind of mistakes

0:07:310:07:33

that make you want to track down those responsible

0:07:330:07:36

and carve the word "numpty" into their forehead.

0:07:360:07:39

Sergeant Hugo Stiglitz.

0:07:390:07:43

Heard of him?

0:07:430:07:45

Everybody in the German army's heard of Hugo Stiglitz.

0:07:450:07:48

Let's start with the scene where we find out about a Nazi turned good guy who goes by the name of....

0:07:480:07:53

Well, you can probably read it for yourself.

0:07:530:07:56

And here's a newspaper article all about the Nazis he's meant to have killed.

0:07:570:08:00

On the top row here, there are six photos.

0:08:000:08:04

Go ahead and count them.

0:08:040:08:05

Hugo Stiglitz is a celebrity among German soldiers.

0:08:050:08:09

But in this close-up there are actually seven photos across.

0:08:090:08:12

Which is it, Hugo, six or seven?

0:08:120:08:14

You will answer me!

0:08:140:08:16

Keep an eye on Colonel Landa's cigarette in this clip.

0:08:180:08:22

He's just lit it.

0:08:220:08:25

Already, there's ash hanging off.

0:08:250:08:28

Hmm. Tension mounting.

0:08:290:08:33

Doesn't even take a single drag.

0:08:330:08:35

But seconds later, he puts it out in his apfel strudel.

0:08:390:08:43

And suddenly it's burned down to a stub.

0:08:430:08:46

Leading lady Shosanna puts on heavy lipstick

0:08:480:08:50

for an evening of Nazi bothering.

0:08:500:08:52

But hang on, in this shot, she's hardly wearing any lipstick.

0:08:540:08:58

And there's no big, red mark on the wine glass.

0:08:580:09:01

No, it's all right, lipstick's back again. As you were.

0:09:050:09:09

I've been chewed out before.

0:09:150:09:16

It's the end of the film with everyone making a break for freedom.

0:09:160:09:18

Heard that deal you made with the brass.

0:09:180:09:21

But something else is trying to make a run for it and that's Brad Pitt's tie.

0:09:210:09:27

-First you can see both sides...

-I'd make that deal.

-I don't blame you.

0:09:270:09:30

Then one side has made a run for it.

0:09:300:09:33

And that pretty little nest you've feathered for yourself. Well, if you're willing to barbecue

0:09:330:09:37

the whole high command, I suppose that's worth certain considerations.

0:09:370:09:40

Don't worry, it'll be back.

0:09:400:09:42

But I do have one question.

0:09:420:09:44

Yeah, who's in charge of continuity here?

0:09:440:09:46

It's notoriously difficult to act whilst eating. If you ask me,

0:09:480:09:53

I can't see what the fuss is about.

0:09:530:09:55

I'm sorry.

0:09:550:09:57

I can't...

0:09:570:09:59

I... I can't...

0:09:590:10:02

I don't envy movie stars for their flashy houses, fast cars and beautiful girlfriends.

0:10:050:10:10

What I do envy is them having drinks that never seem to end, as these clips show.

0:10:100:10:15

Here's a classic food and drink gaffe from the film Duel.

0:10:150:10:19

Drink it. Drink it.

0:10:190:10:21

Yeah, drink it, all of it.

0:10:220:10:25

Drink all of it.

0:10:250:10:26

There you go.

0:10:260:10:28

Hang on, the glass is completely full again!

0:10:290:10:31

What if I called the local police?

0:10:310:10:33

They can't help you.

0:10:330:10:35

Ray Winstone is drinking with Mel Gibson. Always a dangerous pastime.

0:10:370:10:42

See how he leaves a good swig at the bottom of his glass.

0:10:420:10:45

But in the wide, it's completely empty!

0:10:450:10:49

I think Mel finished it.

0:10:490:10:50

You should always keep an eye on your drink at a party, as this clip from American Pie demonstrates...

0:10:520:10:58

You're really beautiful.

0:10:580:10:59

Really?

0:11:000:11:02

Oh, yeah.

0:11:030:11:04

..because the young lady's clear cup suddenly turns into a blue plastic cup.

0:11:040:11:10

And it's back again.

0:11:100:11:12

I wouldn't drink that if I was you.

0:11:120:11:14

God, I'm so nervous. I don't know why!

0:11:160:11:18

Here's a film I will never be able to unwatch, Bride Wars.

0:11:180:11:23

Keep an eye on the champagne glass.

0:11:230:11:25

Y'know, honestly...

0:11:250:11:27

It's transformed into a make-up compact.

0:11:270:11:29

..the pressure we put on brides...

0:11:290:11:32

And now it's champagne again.

0:11:320:11:34

Do you know, I could do with a drink after watching that gaffe.

0:11:340:11:37

Or some make-up.

0:11:370:11:39

-I mean, you've handled some pretty rough customers, huh?

-Yeah, I have.

0:11:410:11:45

Watch the table in front of taxi driver Travis Bickle.

0:11:450:11:49

Just a cup of coffee, right?

0:11:490:11:51

Wrong. There's an entirely magically appearing burger there as well.

0:11:510:11:56

Hey, Travis, I'm talking to you.

0:11:560:11:58

I said I'm talking to... Oh, let's move on.

0:11:580:12:01

Josh Brolin here as US President George W Bush.

0:12:030:12:06

You know I got tasters in the kitchen?

0:12:060:12:09

He's so busy he can't even eat his lunch without running the country at the same time.

0:12:090:12:14

Quick bite or two to keep his stamina up...

0:12:140:12:17

We got 200 million Americans dead on our hands.

0:12:170:12:21

But this must be a self-replenishing sandwich,

0:12:210:12:24

because, moments later, both halves are intact again.

0:12:240:12:27

Because I'm more worried now than I was on 9/11.

0:12:290:12:32

It's your car! Your insurance should pay for it.

0:12:340:12:37

Movie classic Back To The Future.

0:12:370:12:40

Keep your eye on the sweet jar next to Marty McFly. It's full to the brim with candy.

0:12:400:12:44

I haven't yet, but I figured since they weren't due till...

0:12:440:12:48

Hello? Hello?

0:12:480:12:50

But, just moments later, it's half-empty.

0:12:500:12:54

Still, it's a welcome distraction from him trying to cop off with his mother.

0:12:540:12:59

Cheers.

0:13:010:13:03

The only impossible mission in this clip

0:13:030:13:05

is trying to keep track of Ving Rhames' pint glass.

0:13:050:13:08

It bounces from his hand

0:13:080:13:11

to the table...

0:13:110:13:12

Why don't you come back with me?

0:13:120:13:14

I just...

0:13:170:13:18

I just don't know why I'd be doing it.

0:13:180:13:21

..and back to his hand again.

0:13:210:13:23

Americans really can't handle their beer.

0:13:230:13:26
