There are a lot of things that are just wrong about Hollywood.

0:00:230:00:26

Why do the actors get paid so much?

0:00:260:00:28

Why does Jennifer Aniston make so many dodgy rom-coms?

0:00:280:00:31

And why, Mel Gibson, why?

0:00:310:00:34

But we're here to right some movie wrongs, or at least point them out and be sarcastic about them.

0:00:340:00:40

Enjoy!

0:00:400:00:41

Get Him To The Greek now, and we join the party in full swing.

0:00:410:00:46

With Russell Brand, some sexy girls,

0:00:460:00:48

Puff Diddy Daddy Combs and something on fire.

0:00:480:00:52

-Sergio's gone crazy!

-I love this game!

0:00:520:00:54

And note the night-time cityscape in the windows.

0:00:540:00:57

A real night to remember.

0:00:570:00:59

I don't think so!

0:00:590:01:01

Only when they get outside it's not night at all,

0:01:010:01:04

it's the middle of the day.

0:01:040:01:05

Exactly how long is that walk from the room to the exit?

0:01:070:01:11

Look carefully at this clip from Ronin.

0:01:140:01:17

Someone's spying on some tough guys from a window through a camera.

0:01:170:01:21

But the next camera shot is clearly from someone standing

0:01:230:01:26

right in front of them on the street. Very undercover.

0:01:260:01:29

Here's a newspaper that clearly says it's from the year 1980.

0:01:320:01:37

But hold the press, what's this?

0:01:370:01:40

TheEmbreyStar.com?!

0:01:410:01:43

A web address in 1980?

0:01:430:01:45

The World Wide Web didn't exist until the 1990s.

0:01:450:01:49

Ah, legs crossed left over right, the classic relaxation position.

0:01:510:01:56

-I will never become an Omega...

-I mean, right over left.

0:01:560:02:00

That's it, right over left.

0:02:000:02:02

Left over right?

0:02:020:02:04

Please.

0:02:040:02:05

Right over left?

0:02:050:02:07

I cannot keep up with the Joneses.

0:02:070:02:10

This isn't about me selling my products,

0:02:120:02:14

I have to ensure my unit is selling their products.

0:02:140:02:17

There's that guy Mulder, from The X Files,

0:02:170:02:19

with some paranormal activity.

0:02:190:02:21

Keep an eye on his arm. It's up by his head.

0:02:210:02:25

Separate bedrooms perhaps?

0:02:250:02:27

Down again.

0:02:270:02:29

You're not a great salesman.

0:02:290:02:32

Touching his ear.

0:02:320:02:34

Touching the table. Spooky.

0:02:340:02:37

Harry Potter's full of all kinds of magical nonsense.

0:02:390:02:42

That's it, all I need's a bit of luck.

0:02:420:02:45

He's got an invisibility cloak, but in this scene he's also got invisibility glasses.

0:02:450:02:49

Look, no lenses.

0:02:490:02:51

It's a miracle.

0:02:530:02:55

In Final Destination we see a young lady striking a tiny match

0:02:580:03:03

that suddenly becomes absolutely massive.

0:03:030:03:06

You could say... the match doesn't match.

0:03:060:03:08

Look, it's all completely chicken soup.

0:03:100:03:12

-It's what?

-It's kosher. MECHANICAL WHIRRING

0:03:120:03:15

As Christmas.

0:03:150:03:16

Lock Stock may have Two Smoking Barrels, but in this scene there's one massive clunker.

0:03:160:03:20

-I need some artillery, too.

-The fruit machine sounds like it's working.

0:03:200:03:23

This is London, not the Lebanon.

0:03:230:03:25

But no reels move at any point.

0:03:250:03:28

Oi, Guy Ritchie, back up the apples and pears and sort your movie out.

0:03:280:03:32

I don't like you.

0:03:340:03:36

Dustin Hoffman about to reveal a revolutionary new product.

0:03:360:03:40

Shaving foam that shaves for you.

0:03:400:03:42

Leave on for a bit during a dramatic scene.

0:03:430:03:46

Wipe foam off...

0:03:460:03:48

and you're clean-shaven.

0:03:480:03:50

Mrs Robinson, get that boy to the Dragon's Den.

0:03:500:03:53

PHONE RINGS Pick it up.

0:03:550:03:57

A dark, atmospheric thriller from the Coen brothers and what could be more creepy than a haunted phone?

0:03:570:04:02

-It's still ringing after she picks it up.

-RINGING PERSISTS

0:04:020:04:06

Let's see that again.

0:04:060:04:07

RINGING PERSISTS

0:04:110:04:13

Oh, hi, it's Robert from Movie Mistakes.

0:04:130:04:15

I'd like my money back, please.

0:04:150:04:17

Fans of Star Trek prefer to be called Trekkers, because the term "Trekkie" is deemed offensive.

0:04:190:04:24

A bit like "tragic, lonely geek-face".

0:04:240:04:27

Some fans have even gone to the trouble of learning the entire language of Klingon.

0:04:270:04:31

To those people I say, "Brak nik toff jah bak mak,"

0:04:310:04:34

which doesn't mean anything as I've got better things to do with my life.

0:04:340:04:39

As it happens, Bones McCoy was a nickname of a kid I went to school with,

0:04:390:04:43

after he was caught in an uncompromising situation with a bag of crinkle-cut crisps.

0:04:430:04:48

Stand by for some hi-tech, high-action sky-diving

0:04:480:04:52

from the recent Star Trek reboot.

0:04:520:04:54

We can see the order of the sky-divers on the display screen.

0:04:540:04:57

Red first, then blue, then yellow.

0:04:570:05:00

5,800 metres.

0:05:000:05:03

Distance to target, 5,000 metres.

0:05:030:05:05

When we see them outside, they're in a completely different order.

0:05:050:05:08

Blue, yellow, red.

0:05:080:05:09

Obviously, the guy in red dies horribly, as required by Star Trek law.

0:05:110:05:15

Don't people ever learn?

0:05:170:05:19

Here's Nero, the villain, throttling some poor bloke.

0:05:230:05:26

But, looking at his missing right ear tip,

0:05:260:05:29

I'd guess he's already been in a fight, possibly with Mike Tyson.

0:05:290:05:33

-Spock!

-But now it's his left ear that's all chewed up.

0:05:330:05:37

-And his right ear is all pointy.

-Spock!

0:05:370:05:40

You leave that Spock alone, it's not his fault.

0:05:400:05:42

-Stop the ship.

-Kirk, how the hell did you get on board the Enterprise?

0:05:440:05:47

Here's Uhura standing right by her man, Mr Spock.

0:05:470:05:50

Only, in this shot, she's standing quite far away.

0:05:500:05:54

Women!

0:05:540:05:55

Some old-school Trek now,

0:05:590:06:01

back when they knew how to dress for every occasion.

0:06:010:06:05

Falling to your certain death, only a black outfit will do.

0:06:050:06:08

Being saved just before certain death, maybe a blue top would be more suitable.

0:06:120:06:18

I suspect his trousers are brown though.

0:06:180:06:20

Some people complained that William Shatner's acting was a bit wooden, like a puppet.

0:06:220:06:27

Well, I think that's a bit unfair. He's nothing like a puppet.

0:06:270:06:31

You know, with strings attached, holding him up in the air.

0:06:310:06:35

Or people just off-screen pushing him about, controlling his every move during fight scenes.

0:06:350:06:41

No, nothing like a puppet.

0:06:410:06:43

Ambassador...

0:06:450:06:46

Ambassador, with this next movie mistake you are really spoiling us.

0:06:460:06:51

Spare me your human platitudes, Kirk.

0:06:510:06:53

Look at the display of guns on the wall.

0:06:530:06:55

Your son meant more to me than you can know.

0:06:550:06:58

And now look.

0:06:580:07:00

Can you spot the difference?

0:07:000:07:01

Yes, of course you can!

0:07:010:07:03

Ah, there's the moustachioed Scotty, standing behind Kirk,

0:07:060:07:09

his right-hand man there to comfort him in his time of need.

0:07:090:07:12

This death takes place in the shadow of new life.

0:07:120:07:15

The sunrise of a new world.

0:07:150:07:18

A world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish.

0:07:180:07:22

Hang on, where's Scotty?

0:07:220:07:24

-BAGPIPES

-Who's playing those blooming bagpipes? Oh, Scotty's back.

0:07:260:07:31

Turns out he CAN change the laws of physics.

0:07:310:07:34

Keep an eye on the injured actor in this scene from The Wrath Of Khan.

0:07:380:07:42

He's making the most of his big moment by dying not once...

0:07:420:07:46

..but twice.

0:07:480:07:49

Let's see that again.

0:07:510:07:52

He dies

0:07:520:07:54

and then decides to close his eyes.

0:07:540:07:56

Talk about overplaying your part.

0:07:560:07:58

More vintage Star Trek now. Look at that lovely jumper.

0:08:000:08:04

But it's the whales we're looking for here.

0:08:040:08:07

There they are. Big remote-controlled whales.

0:08:070:08:10

How do we know they're remote-controlled?

0:08:100:08:13

Because that's the special-effects diver releasing them.

0:08:140:08:18

I feel cheated. Next you'll be telling me there's no such thing as transparent aluminium.

0:08:180:08:23

Look at the big Klingon spaceship

0:08:260:08:29

casting a huge shadow over the fishing boat.

0:08:290:08:31

It's no good just turning the boat around, you won't get away from it that easily. Or will you?

0:08:310:08:37

Well, the shadow's gone.

0:08:380:08:39

That must mean the spaceship has too. Yay!

0:08:390:08:42

Oh, no, there it is.

0:08:420:08:45
