There was once a noble quest undertaken by Tommo and Ben,
two hairy men from the Midlands, and Matthew, the painfully wise.
Bravely they sought out motion picture mishaps,
cinematic screw ups and filmic failings.
They travelled as far as Odeon and through the many Caverns of Vue.
But they have returned with their prey,
captured on shiny golden rings known as DVDs.
Fine, fine, I know they are not gold.
Join them now as they celebrate Great Movie Mistakes!
-Matthew, turn on the light!
-Right, let's get cracking!
Guys, don't you think you look like characters from that film?
-Top Gear is not a film, Ben.
-No, The Lord Of The Rings.
What are you talking about?
I've just been to the rugby with my girlfriend,
who doesn't know that I'm bald.
And I've just come back from my mate's pub crawl.
-The weather was terrible but I did find this broom.
I've just come back from the shops, getting supplies for tonight.
-Why are you carrying a sword?
-It's a rough neighbourhood.
-ALL: Movie night!
Hello and welcome to Great Movie Mistakes.
-We are Pappy's. I'm Matthew.
-And he's Matthew.
Tonight in our flat we will be taking you through
some of cinema's biggest howlers.
Coming up on tonight's show:
-Wow, guys! This movie night is shaping up beautifully.
Movie night? These are our supplies for when the Apocalypse happens.
Really? With these provisions, your heart would last about a week.
I think you will find it's sustained us for the last six years.
It's a medical miracle. Technically, we should have triabetes.
-Which reminds me. M&Ms.
-Peanut and chocolate.
It's lucky your Apocalypse provisions dovetail so nicely
with my idea for a perfect movie night.
So let's get cracking with our first batch of faulty movie moments.
Who are you talking to?
The brain segment of the frontal lobe...
-It's Pacific Rim!
Guillermo Del Toro's exciting and spectacular monster film
is surprisingly enjoyable but it's not without a clanger or two.
-Check out that headpiece that Newton's wearing.
See it now, fastened around his neck without him touching it.
Unlike that giant floating kaiju brain, which is bang on.
One. HE GASPS
You know them mark ones? Scrape them back...
Mirror, mirror on the wall, what's the most glaring error of them all?
I'd say probably this one.
Watch Idris Elba somehow manage to move from right next to the mirror
to all the way into the middle of the room.
Teleporting near a mirror is seven years bad luck, right?
..under the radar for a while but last time I checked it was Tokyo.
Great! It's Star Trek Into Darkness.
Star Trek into awesomeness, more like.
Kirk's drowning his sorrows, but check out his glass.
The futuristic orb of ice is drowned in whiskey.
But now, where's the whiskey gone?
-No wonder he's upset!
I will remain behind and divert all power to life support.
Sulu's a renegade. The Enterprise is falling apart
and he's driving without a seat belt!
All due respect, Commander, but we're not going anywhere.
Oh wait, there it is. But wait!
If we look later on, he's taken it off again
and Spock's obviously had a go at him as it's back on.
There's no excuse not to use protection.
I love the way they teleport in this movie!
I love the way Uhura is both fierce and sexy, a true independent woman.
OK. But speaking of Uhura, where is she in this shot?
Teleported into my dreams?
-And back again. That was quick.
-I don't need long.
It is time for some slightly above-average
-super-heroics in Man Of Steel.
-Here's a good blooper.
A message is being broadcast worldwide
but it's somehow night-time in all these places around the world.
My girlfriend's travelling at the moment and whenever I call her
she doesn't pick up because it's the middle of the night.
I just think it is always night-time in a lot of places.
-Ben, she's in Cornwall.
-Let it go, buddy.
It's coming in on the RSS feeds.
Time to shed some light on another Man Of Steel clunker.
Those soldiers are clearly casting a shadow to the side,
despite the sun being very definitely behind Superman.
What makes you think she's here?
Surely the real inconsistency is why a man with almost
unlimited power and the ability to single-handedly solve
all of the world's problem chooses to spend 40 hours a week
working as a newspaper reporter, essentially neglecting the cries
for help from people worldwide, all of whom he can definitely hear.
That's actually an amazingly good point.
If you take one of the greatest works of literature ever,
get Baz Luhrmann to make an awesome film of it
-starring Leonardo DiCaprio and what do you get?
-Romeo and Juliet.
Absolutely. Sadly, The Great Gatsby wasn't half as good
but hats off for their hard efforts.
Hats off, indeed! But wait! Hats on here.
-Oh, and the car they are overtaking vanishes.
-Hats all, folks!
Watch out, watch out.
Cliched and clunky White House Down shows there inevitably comes
a time when any president is required to fire a missile launcher
out of the side of his limousine.
If this whole concept wasn't mistake enough,
check out Channing Tatum's arm.
As Jamie Foxx strikes him on the head,
we see either some marks for editing or a really terrible tattoo.
Don't hit me in the head with a rocket when I'm trying to drive!
-Get me to the...
-And he's opening the back window.
For security reasons,
you can only open the front window in presidential cars.
As I remember from my affair with Clinton in '95.
-He has a rocket launcher.
-That's something you don't see every day!
World War Z now, but you won't be catching any z's
if you watch this hard-edged neo-zombie action thriller.
-But listen to Dr Fassbach making a basic medical error.
-..The analogy I keep coming back to is Spanish flu.
It didn't exist in 1918 but by 1920,
it killed three percent of the world.
Didn't exist in 1918?
I think you'll find it broke out in 1918, mate! Hah!
The plane's going down!
Let's put on our oxygen masks while we try to stabilise the engines!
It doesn't look promising, there's a massive hole in the plane.
Prepare for impact.
But with certain death looming, the pilots have opted
to take off their oxygen masks and wear normal headsets.
-It's simple, Ben, so they can kiss.
With the zombie disease causing havoc worldwide,
the population is rapidly decreasing.
Soon the only person left will be a teleporting bearded man.
Sorry, what? Check him out. White beardy hair man. He's everywhere.
..and now sorting through papers.
Only he can run fast enough to outrun the zombie hordes.
Sir, there is nowhere to evacuate you to.
Now, the science of movie mistakes is as real
and serious as alchemy, horoscopes and a third example.
But how do you measure a movie mistake?
We had literally hundreds of e-mails and letters,
none of which relate to this subject.
So we thought we would tackle that now.
Basically, a clanger is one below a blooper.
You get two gaffs to a clunker.
Although it should be noted that an American clunker
is worth only two thirds of a British clunker.
In other words, roughly equivalent to a howler.
Five howlers add up to a boob.
Three boobs and you're watching Total Recall.
And if you spot a gaffe, howler and boob happening all at once,
you're probably watching a film by Michael Bay.
Oh, zing! Always going for those tricky targets, Crosby!
I think that's the last we'll be hearing from that guy!
Anyway, here are some impressive examples of premium goofs.
Goofs! I knew we'd missed one.
We must find shelter!
It's the grand but rather long first Hobbit movie.
They could have picked a different day to film it! Awful weather!
They're getting absolutely soaked,
apart from the dwarves, it would seem.
His hair doesn't look wet at all.
And neither does his.
And as soon as they enter the cave,
-the dwarves are completely bone dry.
-This is easily explained.
Dwarves are shorter so the rain hits them later.
It doesn't quite work like that, Ben.
More wet spells here in the Hobbit.
The "precious" ring falls onto some dry slate.
Bit dark but with the old lightsaber,
you can see the slate is definitely wet.
You can solve pretty much any problem by waving your lightsaber about.
Good grief! Put it away, boy!
Joseph Kosinsky's visually striking
but a trifle dull Oblivion is up next.
He's clearly a fan of movie mistakes.
He's even plonked one into a slow-mo scene to make it easier for us see.
Check out the gun with its strap flailing about.
But when it falls to the ground, strapless.
In the future, IKEA will be releasing Modeprip a half bed,
half table combo which is great, because if anyone falls on it,
it will simply bend a bit until they're off.
Until then, a padded fake table will have to do.
Time for a clunker from the glittery
but uninvolving mystery thriller that was Now You See Me.
Magicians and elaborate revenge plots galore
but the real mystery is where the extras vanish to
as Interpol agent Alma Dray sits down.
Now you see them...
..now you don't.
Time for some turbo powered excitement with Premium Rush.
I'm sorry, no matter how much synthey music you use,
this scene will never be cool.
Check out the taxi door.
They've taken off the window and half the door frame
so the stuntman could fall over it.
And once Joseph Gordon-Levitt finishes using his weird
-in-built Sat Nav...
-Handy for a courier.
..we see it's all back on.
-Check out those great bullhorn handlebars.
But in the very same chase scene,
those handlebars suddenly change to risers.
Horns to risers doesn't sound like much of a change to me.
Put it away!
Here Comes The Boom is great.
By great don't you mean mediocre, Ben?
-Stop calling me mediocre Ben!
Here's Mr Voss.
He's late for school, hence he's climbing through a window.
That's all fair enough.
But he clearly had time to change his shoes from boots to trainers.
This is evidence that wayward teacher Mr Voss
may be mentally unhinged.
Here he is, getting crisps out of a jammed vending machine
and two bags fall out.
Immediately he gives one to a pupil but makes him deny it ever happened.
This never happened. Are we clear?
Power games! Very dark!
But wait! He's got two packets of crisps again.
This man is insane!
And now, after having eaten three crisps,
he just throws his one packet away.
What happened to the second packet?
"This never happened. Are we clear?"
It's the powerfully emotional Flight,
featuring Denzel Washington who is, for once, playing someone heroic.
Stretch yourself, Denzel!
What this film does stretch is reality.
There goes the plane, about 12 feet from ground level.
-Oh, Lord Jesus...
And there is our view from inside the plane. Miles up in the air!
Get it together, Washington, people are counting on you.
-Are you ready for some mobile phone madness?
First, he unlocks his phone
and the time is 1:17 on October 20.
Then, blam! He unlocks the phone and it is 8:52 on October 8.
And then, just for good measure,
he somehow zooms right in on his iPhone like
an absolute maverick.
Denzel plays by no-one's rules but his own.
Don't you just hate answerphone greetings?
-Yeah, they are so samey.
-Not in Flight, they are not!
Listen to this one.
-But the second time we hear it, it is shorter.
-Stands to reason.
He has had time to practise, so it will be slicker the second time.
He has angered Denzel, there, though. Nasty business.
That is absolutely not how it works.
Hello. My name is Ben.
I'm auditioning for the part of Wolverine.
I'll be reading for the part of Wolverine.
I'll be reading for the part of Rogue.
No, only kidding.
I'm reading for Wolverine.
Or as I like to call him, Wolferine.
Damn this healing factor of mine is just so powerful.
I'm healing all the time.
Will I walk you home?
Of CLAWS I'll walk you home.
# Prince Charming, Prince Charming... #
That's right, my bones are laced with Adam Ant-ium.
I'm just a stubborn Canadian here to show you what justice is all aboot.
I'm more of an XXX man.
Yeah, just checking, you will CGI the body in afterwards? Right?
That's how Jackman did it, right?
It's time to look at some careless action movie mistakes.
As a fellow mutant, I can only admire the solid
and surprisingly mature action romp The Wolverine.
The ability to burp the national anthem of any Commonwealth country
is not a mutant power, Ben.
It's not unimpressive, though.
Regardless, check out Hugh Jackman's hitherto unknown mutant power,
shifting from lying on his side...
to lying on his back without apparently moving at all.
Here is Jackman, tearing up some fools at a funeral whilst
Viper films it all on her phone.
But wait. Look as she lowers it.
The footage on the phone clearly isn't happening live.
Maybe she is simply using the phone to watch the stunning action
film The Wolverine.
It's an extraordinary meta piece of film-making.
Now, TRAIN your eyes, if you will, on those passers-by.
-What? Those passers-by looking directly and the camera?
They should probably TRAIN their eyes elsewhere.
Ben, you are aware I made that exact same joke literally seconds before?
-Boys, let's get back on track.
Nothing says "not particularly good action film" like the words
GI Joe: Retaliation.
But it did bring us this error.
-Look at Channing Tatum's ears, everyone.
-A bit harsh.
-I don't think they can be classed as a mistake.
-No, his headphones.
-'Firstly they're on...'
Then they are off.
You got a big head. Come here.
Then they are on again. Just like Ross and Rachel.
-Wow, where did that come from?
-I've just got to the end of Friends.
It is the awesome Iron Man 3. Tonnes better than the second one.
Now, throughout the film, he has got blood on his left eye and cheek.
But somehow, for this shot, it is on his right side.
And now it's back. EYE know.
Is that a joke?
A rare sight of implausibility in the usually highly realistic
# It's Skyfall... #
Here is Craig with the old
drive headfirst into the side of a bridge, then land on a train trick.
But what about the motorbike? It's back on its wheels.
But where is it here?
Probably transformed into a Cuban cigar
and landed in Craig's inside pocket!
Sounds about par for the course.
Well, get after them, for God's sake!
Your successor has yet to be appointed so we'll be asking you...
I'm not an idiot, Mallory.
Dame Judi Dench is being tactfully fired by Ralph Fiennes
for losing government secrets.
Keep an eye out for her handbag.
M, you have had a great run.
You should leave with dignity.
To hell with dignity. I'll leave when the job is done.
Yes, she should also leave with her handbag.
Ironically, the handbag contained more government secrets!
Which is why Ralph has had it vaporised!
As anyone who has chased Javier Bardem dressed as a policeman
through a London Underground station knows,
it's impossible to slide down the middle of an escalator.
Yeah, you won't so much slide as bounce off the emergency stop
buttons and raised barriers.
Not to mention the dog-eared copies of free newspapers.
The Oscars always lead to heated debate.
-I'm telling you, this is going to win best picture.
-This will win.
-This needs to win.
-Guys, what is going on?
Just arguing over who is going to win best picture!
Judging by that, neither of you.
-But you are both frontrunners for worst joke.
Speaking of best picture, let's have a look at some shocking
continuity gaffes from this year's Oscar-nominated films.
The jaw-dropping, almost accurate Argo, now. With two mistakes in one.
Like when I got the word "legend"
-tattooed on my...
-OK, OK. First things first. Check this out.
Bear in mind Argo is set in 1979.
There is a script called Passion's Requiem, dated 2009. Ha!
I knew Ben Affleck received my autobiographical screenplay!
-Secondly, you see the Argo script's fancy black vinyl cover?
-I like it!
-Well, where the hell has it gone?
-Affleck has eaten it, has he?
It's very possible, Ben.
-Here is Affleck, writing a postcard.
-But now look.
The word "so" has jumped down a line.
In fact, it's an entirely different lot of writing on the card.
So he has magic handwriting AND he is Batman.
What chance do the rest of us have?
-This is a good blunder. Brace yourselves.
Here is Christoph Waltz,
putting on his braces in the brutal,
-gutsy and fantastic Django Unchained.
-That's fair enough.
Found my way. To buy freedom.
-But he does it twice! Do you see?
-He's putting them on when he already did.
-Yeah. I guess so.
BRACE yourselves! Because he was putting...
Yeah, yeah, we get it, Tom.
Extras are like buses.
At first there are six of them, and then there are only three,
and then back to six. See?
I wish to purchase...
-How is that like buses, Tom?
-Well, you pay £2.40 to enter them.
Buses, that is. Not extras. That simile is lacking, if I'm honest.
No appointment, no nothing.
And whether any of you...
"Lincoln is a thrilling, deeply enjoyable film,"
is a sentence that tells me I have nothing in common with my date.
Come on, I can't think of a better way to spend seven hours.
Check out this clonker. See the President's glasses?
The fate of human dignity...
Well, look again. Because they have gone.
-Yeah, it's my new word that I made up for blooper.
-Hmm. Not strong.
Our man proving why he is fit to lead a nation.
His crotch actually generates paperwork.
Actually, this is a blooper. Here he is, putting papers into a folder.
Next shot, they are back in his hand.
So much for the magic crotch theory!
It's the gripping, intense Zero Dark Thirty.
And this is for the geography buffs among you.
Say no more, Matthew.
-Oh, I didn't know you were into geography.
So, please, say no more.
Those street signs are quite clearly not Kuwaiti.
They are Indian. Eh? Madness.
Matthew, really. Say no more.
Look at me! Look at me!
Time for the emotionally walloping Beasts Of The Southern Wild.
And here they are, deep in a storm.
So, the trees closest to us are moving.
But what about those perfectly still ones in the background?
The all-encompassing storm hasn't reached them yet?
I'm chalking this one up as a stormy clanger.
Here's the delightful Hush Puppy popping a Michael Jordan
jersey on her sleeping father.
And that is either a knock-off replica or a reverse shot
because that number 23 is backwards.
Good spot, Ben. How did you see that?
Well, my teachers always said I was a bit backwards. It's a gift.
Look at these two cups.
Apart from appalling parenting, there is a massive mistake here.
Hush Puppy grabs the cup with the handle. But now the dad has it.
Now she has got it again.
Nope, it's the dad's again.
-Oh, God. Drinking really does affect your vision.
-You're right there.
Which Matthew just said that?
-This will surprise you guys, but I'm actually a bit of a nerd.
-No, all true. All true.
-That's all right, Matthew.
It's actually pretty cool nowadays to be a nerd.
Yet, in fact, coming up next, we have got a whole section
dedicated to movie mistakes that happened in the nerdy films.
Is there anything from the biopic of George de Mestral,
the inventor of Velcro?
Or from the 1970s documentary Velcro Wars,
about the golden age of the Velcro industry?
No. It's like comic book stuff and sci-fi and things.
That's actually fairly mainstream these days.
Certainly nothing about Velcro.
You massive nerd.
It's bloodsucking vampire Bella in the ever rancid
and ghastly Twilight series.
Hey, you're just bitter because you're team Jacob and she picked Edward.
-What? Spoiler alert!
-Well, here is a spoiler, boyos.
-Look at the page from the Merchant Of Venice.
-I see it.
Just a regular, smudge free page.
But wait! Where did those smudges come from? Smudge-tastic.
This fight scene is the one redeeming feature of all five
Twilight films. Or is it?
-Because even this epic scene has a movie mistake.
Afraid so, Tom. Look.
There she is with high heels just as Edward hurls
her in one of Twilight's many potent feminist moments.
-And now, flat boots.
-Oh, I give up.
Spooky things in the mediocre and lacklustre horror Dark Skies.
Daniel has got a new job,
hence the flowers.
We need to celebrate for a change.
Hey... Where did they go?
Either she dropped them, or she tucked them into his jeans so they could snog.
But now he has got them again. Somehow.
Though Mr Ratner is a portly man, he is clearly an elite martial artist.
Few have mastered the Mobius hand punch, in which you start
punching someone with your right hand and finish with your left.
Dredd was a well-made,
violent but fan-pleasing interpretation of the strip.
As mega-fans know, Dredd is never seen without his helmet.
Or without his gun.
Well, helmet is fully intact there.
Stallone take note. Where is his gun?
Phew! There it is. Franchise nearly ruined, there.
Four mean-looking thugs walking down a hallway.
Hang on, is this a clip from Dredd, or an old music video from Blue?
Cracking reference, Tom. Agreed.
Point is, there are now only three of them.
Lee Ryan probably got confused looking at his reflection
in a broken window.
Handcuffs in the future are brilliant.
Brilliantly accommodating, that is. Wa-hey!
There they go. Becoming invisible
-and moving apart.
-Like my parents.
Dredd's not a lawman of the future, but the past.
Pause here and you see this shot of old stony face in action.
But wind back exactly an hour
-and you get exactly the same moment again.
-And they complain about there being too many repeats on TV!
I saw this movie four times in one day, in the same cinema!
It's Peter Jackson's rather expected return to Middle Earth,
with the far-too-long and eked-out The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Check it out, guys. Here's Bilbo, with his hand on the door.
-Now it's by his side!
-Well, that's not a massive mistake.
Yeah, well, he is tiny.
HE said? Who said?
I'm not afraid. I'm up for it.
I'll give him a taste of Dwarvish iron, right up his jacksie!
James Nesbitt here as Bofur, the cheeky dwarf.
Look at him, leaning forward with his pipe out of his mouth.
And now, leaning against the wall with his pipe IN his mouth.
Classic Murphy's Law.
Oh, yes, please! My favourite.
-Think I'll stick to the popcorn.
-It's a movie review site.
What, uninformed slobs,
lying around, giving their inexpert opinion on films?
-I hate that.
-Yeah(!) Just imagine.
Anyway, this section features films that were darlings of the critics
and rated most highly on IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, that sort of thing.
-I hope it features my favourite film of 2013.
-What was that, Ben?
Well, A, that was made in 1995, and B, it was cobblers, mate!
Actually, Tom, the Waterworld I'm referring to was a 15-minute clip
on a rather niche premium website.
Let's have a look at those mistakes.
Looper is a clever and original time travel film.
I say this because I actually understand it. But look at the gun.
He cocks it...
Now it's uncocked.
Now he's cocked it again!
Sounds like my weekend.
-Was that supposed to be smutty?
-No, I bought a gun.
What the hell's going on out there?
So, let me get this straight.
Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon Levitt are the same person?!
If that's the case, why is Bruce left-handed...
..and Joseph right-handed?
That's a damn fine point.
-I think Bruce might just be using a left-handed gun.
-Let's play a game of Who's In The Truck?
-The kid and his mum!
Look again. It's empty!
Apart from a roll cage
to stop the people who aren't even in there getting hurt.
Clearly the director removed the child and actress before the crash,
which, in terms of verisimilitude, is frankly irresponsible.
You never cared about her and you never cared about us!
Mud, an engrossing, heart-warming modern fairy tale.
What, about the cheesy glam rock group from the '70s?
Nope, it's a film about mud!
The mud in this scene magically disappears from that boy's trousers.
Huh! It must be a fairy tale
when you don't even need to wash your grubby kecks.
End Of Watch is a hard-hitting and intense movie
set on 06-08-2011, which,
being America, means it's 8th June. Nutters!
But look here.
Jake's paperwork says 8-19-12, a whole year in their future,
and either the 19th of August or the 8th of Matthewary,
the 19th month in my invented calendar.
I'm angry you didn't include "Benuary".
"Nobenber" had more of a ring to it, for some reason.
Life Of Pi. Beautiful cinematography, but terrible mistakes.
This is an absolute disgrace!
-Look at the ship.
Indeed, Matthew. But has our boy Pi noticed? Somehow, no.
His bedroom is incredibly calm.
-Wait, is that supposed to be on the same ship?
Look at this girl in the bottom centre.
-Can you see a flower in her hair?
-Sir, I tell you, I cannot.
Well, look again!
-Ben, are you all right?
Think so. Are you sure that's his teeth?
It's the nostalgically fun and sweet comedy Wreck-It Ralph.
But there's nothing funny about this mistake.
-Nonetheless, we've included it.
-Oh, God, yeah.
Her dress is shiny with leaves and flowers on it.
Look again, it's a plain dress.
And seconds later, she's by the door, wearing the original dress.
I don't know what to believe any more!
Now, I've got a bone to pick with you, Ralph.
This is that candy go-kart game over by Whack-a-Mole.
I've got to get out of here!
Mole? Whack-a-MOLE, is it, Ralph?
-Hah! It's Whack-a-TROLL!
Which is what I shouted when I first watched this film.
Is that why we're banned from the Odeon in Crystal Palace?
Ralph is sticking Sour Bill to a candy tree.
Note the branch pointing downwards.
-It's OK, I will.
But now Sour Bill has freed himself, and in freeing himself
has somehow twisted the branch so it points to his right.
Doubly impressive given that his hands
-and feet float next to his body.
-All very sloppy.
Is this Ryan Gosling starring as the Milky Bar Kid?
No, Tom, this is the powerful and intriguing drama
-The Place Beyond The Pines.
-Oh, that's a shame.
He could have shared his stash of chocolate with
the lady at the table behind him.
Those plates the waitress just brought over vanished.
Anything you think I might want to know before I leave here?
-What, when you have trouble with your bowels?
-No, that's incontinuity.
-When you resume drinking a cup of PG Tips?
No, that's "continue a tea".
Errors, like those two "jokes",
are things that should never have happened,
and continuity errors are the bread and butter of Movie Mistakes.
What, when you move some Eskimos to the Home Counties?
-No, that's "Kent Inuit...y".
Some inspired performances in Hitchcock.
And luckily, some brilliant bloopers.
Alfred Hitchcock is in the middle of a chapter of Psycho
when Alma rudely interrupts him.
This could be the one, Hitch.
I'll read it later.
But now, he's reading from the start of the chapter.
-I sometimes have to re-read things if I'm interrupted.
That's just showing off twice.
Here's Hitch in a napkin, reading a paper
-and displaying terrible table manners.
-I can't see anything wrong.
I forgot to tell you...
Well, the paper is gone and he takes off his napkin.
Taxi to... Where was it, dear?
But here they're both back.
And, just to confuse and alienate Alma, they're both gone again!
Well, would you care to hear my opinion?
While the actual mistake here is that he only SIPS at the wine.
He should drink it all before it goes off.
Now, I'd be the last person you'd think would enjoy a high school
-movie about a cappella groups.
-No, you wouldn't.
-I'm not shocked.
-But check out the smart and sassy Pitch Perfect.
See how there's no-one sat behind the judges...
But now there are two people!
And in just a tick, there's only one of them. And he's moved seats.
Undecided about how to wear your hair in the finals of a
-high school a cappella music competition?
So, do as Aubrey does. Wear it up...
# As you walk on by... #
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
-Then up again!
-Oh, genius! Thanks, Matthew.
-Tom, you don't have any hair.
-Not on my HEAD...
Yes! It's time for action thriller Jack Reacher.
I blooming love this film!
Jack Reacher is my third favourite Jack,
after Daniel's and -ie Collins.
Now, Jack's first concern in any high-speed car chase is safety.
See this Pennsylvania car safety inspection sticker?
The date on it starts off as September 2012.
But that 9 soon changes itself to 6.
And then to a blurry 8.
And then, back to 9!
Meaning he has his car safety-inspected a whopping
five times in just the one - admittedly, far too long - chase.
The great thing about this show is that it can really ruin
action films for you on a more-or-less permanent basis.
Now, look at this parking meter. At first, it's a 10-hour limit.
Then, it's just 30 minutes.
He really is a law unto himself.
By "he", do you mean the continuity guy?
It's you... The guy from the car.
-This bad guy plays by no rules, not even the rules of time.
Well, check out his phone.
-Are you hurt?
-Well, she's going to be if you're not here in one hour.
The duration of the phone call changes from the mid-20s...
-to the low tens.
It's time for the awesome Iron Man 3,
-and my lifetime hero, Tony Stark.
-Don't get too upset by this, Ben,
but it's not quite an iron-clad addition to the movie franchise.
-See this young lady?
She takes off his glasses and without turning them round,
places them on her face!
No wonder he looks so confused.
The great thing about films is that they can teach us so much.
Yeah, for example, Forrest Gump taught me
that it's wise to invest early in shrimp restaurants.
And Schindler's List taught me
that a splash of red can really make an outfit stand out in the crowd.
What I meant was, even movie mistakes can afford us
-a life lesson or two. Shall we take a look?
I didn't blow my shrimp fortune on a massive telly to not watch it.
Another error, from the gripping Argo.
Have a read of the important stuff here.
I'm presuming you mean the factual epilogue to this quite serious film?
Not at all, Matthew.
That child has wrongly labelled his Star Wars figures!
The Jawa and Sandpeople figurines are under each other's
labels on this display stand! What a moron.
Ah, Skyfall. Properly exciting, but littered with mistakes.
Take a look at this MP in the grey floral dress.
There she goes, scrambling for cover.
But wait, she's sat back down again!
Is that what you want?
Another Iron Man 3 misfire with Downey Jr and some specs.
..I've been wanting to send to the Mandarin. I just didn't know how...
Definitely not wearing any here. And now they're back on.
Stark obeys no rules.
And not exactly a mistake, but that reporter should
hold his phone horizontally, that footage is going to be useless!
I'm going to come and get the body.
There's no politics here, just good, old-fashioned revenge.
Here's something it's perfectly normal to have
noticed in the gut-wrenchingly emotional Flight. Check out his eye.
I see it. Bloodshot, as you might expect.
-But what now, Tom?
-Crikey! It's normal!
That's American health care for you.
And all for the mere cost of his family home.
I assure you, Geoffrey,
my murders are always models of taste and discretion.
The decent character piece Hitchcock again.
And this stenographer is padding the keys like nobody's business.
Hah! That's not how stenograph...ising looks.
She should be moving her fingers individually!
Yeah, Ben, that's how YOU type.
Guys, don't you hate photo booths?
They always seem to charge you at least £1.50 more than they say.
What's worse is when they print a different photo to what's
happening in reality! In the totally average On The Road,
the boys are in a different position in the photo that gets printed.
See this expression? No wonder they chopped it up.
Django Unchained - unmistakably Tarantino.
Here, Django earns his freedom via a game of hat-tossing.
-You've not seen this film, have you?
-No, I've not, my mum won't let me.
See how the hat is resting at approximately 43 degrees?
43, 44, yeah.
Well, now it's back totally level.
Amazing. Django, claim your freedom.
That's a fancy word for servant.
Every generation of movie mistakers
is defined by one or two individuals,
actors who care not for continuity errors, or brush aside anachronisms.
No, these actors take the bull by the horns...
and hold it the wrong way round.
Inside The Clunkers Studio is proud to welcome a master mistaker.
Ladies, and indeed gentlemen,
please welcome Mr Bruce Willis.
Bruce, could you share with us your memory of your first movie mistake?
I guess that would be Die Hard 2: Die Harder.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
What a tour de force, and I'm sure we all know all too well
the scene in question,
but how does one prepare for playing a role
-in the middle of winter when it's actually summer?
-It was easy.
-You make it look easy.
-No, no, it was easy.
I mean, they just don't bother to hide that it's sunny outside
-and then sprinkle a bit of fake snow on my jacket.
And there are snowless green trees - an allegory for hope, perhaps?
Now, if I may, I'd like to talk about your comedic exploits
in the sublime and clever Death Becomes Her.
How was it performing a comedic role
alongside two of the world's most beloved actresses?
Well, I had a moustache, so I felt funnier.
Filming it was a lot of fun, though.
I mean, there were times when I had to literally just run onto stage
even before the make-up artist had finished with me.
Ah, yes, here we can see the greyish make-up
-ending on your jaw line. Absolutely fabulous.
-And there's me opening a door from the left side.
-But on the other side,
the doorknob is still on the left, when it should be on the right.
Yeah, I spend a lot of time on set swapping hinges on doors.
I'd like you to share with us
your feelings about the inimitable Last Boy Scout.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Yeah, I had to work really hard to get a blooper in on that one.
There was one scene where I had to be unconscious,
so I thought, "Bruce, how can you do something here?"
So I just tried really hard to not look unconscious.
See, I'm being helped into a car by some thugs and I use my legs.
-That's not the only mistake in the film, is it?
There's a member of the crew in the background
with a ladder. It wasn't me, so I had him fired.
There he is in the background, to the right.
As it wasn't me committing the mistake,
I had it removed off the Blu-ray version.
Oh, Bruce, let's take a question from the audience.
Good evening, Mr Willis. My name's Robert Hoppleby.
-I'm a second-year actor.
In a career riddled with mistakes,
are there any that your public are yet to discover?
I'm very glad you asked that question,
because actually, there is a mistake that nobody's ever seen
that's very dear to my heart,
and I'd like to share it with you this evening.
Ladies and gentlemen,
another first for Inside The Clunkers Studio.
Last year, I was in a little film. Some of you might have seen it.
It was called Looper.
Let's take a look. Here I am in a scene with a lesser actor.
Watch very closely as the waitress brings us things.
I'm having difficulty taking my eyes off your own performance, Bruce.
Yeah, but look there.
-Suddenly, the coffee and water appear out of nowhere.
Yeah, I had them hidden in my lap
and then I popped them out when they changed shot.
They asked if they could reshoot, but I refused.
-Yeah, but there's more.
That so-called... Jason Gordon-Levitt, is that his name?
-They tried to make him look like me.
-He is a lucky man.
Yeah, the make-up artist tried really hard,
but the thing is, I have lobed ears, whereas he does not.
Yes, but I suppose nothing could be done about that.
That's where you're wrong, James. He used to have lobed ears.
In fact, they were identical to mine,
-but I forced him to have them sewn up.
Yeah, such a lot of pain for such an inconsequential thing.
Bruce Willis, we thank you.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
(Can you pay me in cash?)
Even the sharpest amongst us have experienced moments of idiocy.
Um, I haven't.
Are you still developing that range of asbestos balaclavas, Ben?
Sure am, my man.
But even Ben at the peak of his powers
can't compete with these pretty awful clunkers we've got coming up.
Some would argue that remaking Total Recall
-was a moment of idiocy itself.
-It's not great.
Colin Farrell, sorting through some passports.
Here's good old Henry Reed.
More like "Henty Reed".
Oh, you're right!
Across the bottom of the passport, his name is misspelled.
-Amazing spot, Tom.
Not just a pretty face and a steady set of calves.
Also, can I just say,
his signature is frankly embarrassing.
Blimey! Argo has more continuity errors than factual errors.
Right, we all know what safety glass being smashed sounds like, yeah?
-The crunch of freedom.
-Beg your pardon, Ben?
But listen to this.
That's ordinary glass breaking.
I'd like to talk to you boys about Hit And Run.
-The film we're currently watching?
-Oh, yes. Yes, of course, the film.
Good, because there are gaffes galore.
-Yep, check this out.
Randy is chatting to Charlie on his iPhone
and he's only gone and held it upside down.
These actors with their challenging jobs(!)
Look, can't even hold the coffee properly.
That doesn't quite class as a movie mistake.
-Hit And Run? More like miss and run. Am I right, boys?
-Nicely done, Ben.
-That fist isn't touching him.
-No, no, he's a martial artist.
He's mastered the minus-one-inch punch.
He's mainly hitting him with chi.
We're staying here. Let's go.
The smartly character-focused Wolverine again.
Now, notice that it's daytime
-when Logan and Mariko enter the love hotel.
Well, by the time they've made it up to their room,
-it's darkest night. What's up with that?
-That's just proved
that even the transition from night to day is more efficient in Japan.
-Check out Yukio and that black portfolio she's handed.
I can't, Princess. I'm a soldier.
Look again. It's gone.
That's probably just her mutant power, making admin disappear.
Actually, her mutant power is foreseeing people's deaths.
-Thanks for bringing the mood down, Matthew.
-You're very welcome, sir.
Intelligent and glossy thriller Jack Reacher here.
Now, we all know Tom Cruise is quite a short man,
-but this looks ridiculous.
-He's just reversing down that dirt path.
But listen. You can hear gears changing.
You can't change gear in reverse!
Unless Cruise has used his millions to pay for multiple reverse gears.
It's the bright and bewildering Looper. Now, what's 7x8? Yes, 56.
So why, when we change shot, has it moved a space on the board?
Possibly because the kid is an evil psychic?
I didn't think you understood Looper that well, Ben,
but that's not a bad shout.
Aha! 56 is back, and now we have 21, too.
Based on his face, definitely evil and psychic.
Now the 21 tile's disappeared and 56 is back in the wrong place.
Do this now, OK? You have 32 there. I know you know this one.
And then the 21 comes back,
with the 56 still misplaced as the kid puts down 32 where 56 should be.
-No, 8x3 is what?
8x3 is what?
Was that in any way worth the agony of rewatching this in such detail?
Not remotely. Oh, hang on.
-I think I've found another. Go back a sec.
There, see? He has a fine set of demonic front teeth.
-Now rewind again.
-You'll wear the DVD out! Or something.
-Now he's missing one.
-I hate child actors, like Danny DeVito.
-Ben, DeVito's been acting since the '60s.
So he's a prolific child actor.
She's not my mom.
Jim Broadbent as the very British Timothy Cavendish here
in the not entirely successful adaptation of Cloud Atlas.
He's typing a screenplay... and pause.
"Laboring" without a U?
Not a very British way of spelling the word, is it, Broadbent?
Maybe he was commenting on this mistake,
"la boring", which is French for "It's boring".
And that's your lot.
See you soon for some more great movie mistakes!
