There was once a noble quest undertaken by Tommo and Ben,

0:00:020:00:05

two hairy men from the Midlands, and Matthew, "the painfully white".

0:00:050:00:09

Bravely, they sought out motion picture mishaps,

0:00:090:00:13

cinematic screw-ups and filmic failures.

0:00:130:00:16

They travelled as far as Odeon and through the many caverns of Vue,

0:00:180:00:22

where they have returned with their prey,

0:00:220:00:25

captured on shiny golden rings known as DVDs.

0:00:250:00:29

Fine, fine, I know they're not gold.

0:00:290:00:33

Join them now as they celebrate Great Movie Mistakes.

0:00:330:00:38

Even the sharpest amongst us have experienced moments of idiocy.

0:00:400:00:44

Erm, I haven't.

0:00:440:00:46

You still developing that range of asbestos balaclavas, Ben?

0:00:460:00:49

Sure am, my man!

0:00:490:00:51

HE COUGHS

0:00:510:00:53

But even Ben at the peak of his powers can't compete with

0:00:530:00:56

these pretty awful clunkers we've got coming up.

0:00:560:00:59

Some would argue that remaking Total Recall

0:01:000:01:03

was a moment of idiocy itself.

0:01:030:01:04

It's not great.

0:01:040:01:06

Colin Farrell sorting through some passports.

0:01:060:01:09

Here's good old Henry Reed.

0:01:090:01:12

-More like HENTY Reed.

-Oh, you're right!

0:01:120:01:14

Across the bottom of the passport,

0:01:140:01:16

his name is misspelt.

0:01:160:01:17

-Amazing spot, Tom!

-Damn right!

0:01:170:01:20

Not just a pretty face and sturdy set of calves.

0:01:200:01:23

Also, can I just say, his signature is frankly embarrassing.

0:01:230:01:27

Blimey! Argo has more continuity errors than factual errors!

0:01:350:01:40

Right, we all know what safety glass being smashed sounds like, yeah?

0:01:400:01:44

The crunch of freedom.

0:01:440:01:46

-Beg your pardon, Ben?

-Nothing.

0:01:460:01:48

But listen to this...

0:01:480:01:49

GLASS SHATTERS

0:01:510:01:53

That's ordinary glass breaking.

0:01:530:01:55

So what happens to the seven psychopaths at the end?

0:01:580:02:01

I don't know what happens to them at the start.

0:02:010:02:04

I loved Seven Psychopaths.

0:02:040:02:06

Let me guess, it's got swearing and guns in it.

0:02:060:02:10

Actually, it's a sharp meta-textural romp

0:02:100:02:12

which slyly subverts genre expectations.

0:02:120:02:15

-Oh, wow.

-And there are some pretty gruesome deaths.

-Right(!)

0:02:150:02:20

How about this?

0:02:210:02:22

But the really gruesome thing is the fact that the text here

0:02:220:02:26

is repeated here.

0:02:260:02:28

Gross.

0:02:280:02:29

I'd like to talk to you boys about Hit And Run.

0:02:330:02:36

The film we're currently watching?

0:02:360:02:37

What? Oh, yes, yes, of course, the film.

0:02:370:02:41

-Good, because there are gaffes galore.

-Really, Ben?

0:02:410:02:45

Yep, check this out.

0:02:450:02:46

Randy is chatting to Charlie on his iPhone,

0:02:460:02:49

and he's only gone and held it upside down.

0:02:490:02:51

These actors with their challenging jobs(!)

0:02:510:02:54

Look, he can't even hold the coffee properly.

0:02:540:02:56

That doesn't quite class as a movie mistake.

0:02:560:02:59

Hit And Run? More like Miss And Run. Am I right, boys?

0:03:070:03:11

Nicely done, Ben.

0:03:110:03:12

-That fist isn't touching him.

-No, no, he's a martial artist.

0:03:120:03:16

He's mastered the minus one inch punch.

0:03:160:03:20

He's mainly hitting him with chi.

0:03:200:03:22

-Eight blocks that way.

-Good, we're staying here. Let's go.

0:03:250:03:29

The smartly character-focused Wolverine again.

0:03:290:03:33

Now, notice that it's daytime

0:03:330:03:34

when Logan and Marie go into the Love Hotel, but do you notice?

0:03:340:03:38

Well, by the time they've made it up to their room, it's dark as night.

0:03:380:03:41

Wassup wit dat?!

0:03:410:03:43

That's just proof that even the transition from night to day

0:03:430:03:45

is more efficient in Japan. Wha-cha!

0:03:450:03:48

-Check out Yukio and that black portfolio she's handed.

-Sure.

0:03:520:03:56

I can, princess.

0:03:570:03:59

I'm a soldier.

0:03:590:04:00

Look again, it's gone.

0:04:000:04:03

Cor, that's probably just her mutant power making admin disappear!

0:04:030:04:07

Actually, her mutant power is foreseeing people's deaths.

0:04:070:04:11

-Thanks for bringing the mood down, Matthew.

-You're very welcome, sir.

0:04:110:04:15

Intelligent and glossy thriller Jack Reacher here.

0:04:180:04:21

Now, we all know Tom Cruise is quite a short man

0:04:210:04:24

but this looks ridiculous.

0:04:240:04:26

He's just reversing down that dirt path. But listen...

0:04:260:04:29

You can hear gears changing!

0:04:310:04:32

ENGINE THRUMS WITH GEARS CHANGING

0:04:320:04:34

You can't change gear in reverse!

0:04:370:04:39

Unless Cruise has used his millions to pay for multiple reverse gears.

0:04:390:04:43

It's the bright and bewildering Looper. Now, what's 7x8?

0:04:460:04:51

Yes, 56.

0:04:510:04:53

So, why, when we change shot, has it moved a space on the board?

0:04:530:04:57

How long can you not sleep?

0:04:570:04:59

Possibly because the kid is an evil psychic?

0:04:590:05:01

I didn't think you'd mastered Looper that well, Ben,

0:05:010:05:03

but that's not a bad shout.

0:05:030:05:04

Ah-ha, 56 is back, and now we have 21 too!

0:05:070:05:12

Based on his face?

0:05:120:05:14

Definitely evil and psychic.

0:05:140:05:16

Joe.

0:05:160:05:18

Now the 21 tile has disappeared,

0:05:180:05:20

and 56 is back in the wrong place.

0:05:200:05:22

Do this now, OK? You have 32 there, I know you know this one.

0:05:230:05:27

And then the 21 comes back,

0:05:270:05:29

with the 56 still misplaced as the kid puts down 32 where 56 should be!

0:05:290:05:34

-No, 8x3 is what?

-32.

0:05:340:05:38

8x3 is what?

0:05:380:05:40

Was that in any way worth the agony of re-watching this in such detail?

0:05:400:05:44

Not remotely. Oh, hang on, I think I've found another. Go back a sec.

0:05:440:05:48

Ohhhh!

0:05:480:05:49

There, see. He has a fine set of demonic front teeth.

0:05:490:05:54

-Now rewind again.

-You'll wear the DVD out! Or something.

0:05:550:06:00

Look, now he's missing one!

0:06:010:06:03

I hate child actors, like Danny DeVito.

0:06:030:06:06

Ben, DeVito's been acting since the '60s.

0:06:060:06:09

Great, so he's a prolific child actor.

0:06:090:06:12

She's not my mom.

0:06:120:06:14

Jim Broadbent as the very British Timothy Cavendish here

0:06:170:06:20

in the not-entirely successful adaptation of Cloud Atlas.

0:06:200:06:24

He's typing a screenplay,

0:06:240:06:25

and...pause!

0:06:250:06:28

"Labouring" without a U?

0:06:290:06:30

Not a very British way of spelling the word, is it, Broadbent?

0:06:300:06:34

Maybe he was commenting on this mistake?

0:06:340:06:37

La-boring, which is French for, "it's boring."

0:06:370:06:39

Stale, uninspired,

0:06:430:06:45

cheap, tacky, and a little bit sickly.

0:06:450:06:48

No stars.

0:06:480:06:50

Wow, Tom, you're really getting into this film criticism thing.

0:06:500:06:53

No, I'm reviewing a Chinese take away I had on Just Eat.

0:06:530:06:56

Fantastic chemistry, four stars.

0:06:560:06:59

Are you reviewing a film, Ben?

0:06:590:07:01

No! I'm reviewing my old chemistry teacher.

0:07:010:07:04

He's opened a Chinese restaurant on Just Eat.

0:07:040:07:08

Thanks for that, both.

0:07:080:07:09

Some films are so terrible that continuity errors even improve them.

0:07:090:07:13

Slightly.

0:07:130:07:14

Let's have a look at the best of the worst.

0:07:140:07:16

A proper clunker here from un-special,

0:07:160:07:19

poorly scripted Total Recall.

0:07:190:07:23

Yeah, Colin Farrell's stunt double is clearly a woman.

0:07:230:07:26

Not quite, Benedict.

0:07:260:07:27

That's Lori and look at her hair!

0:07:270:07:29

Midway through the fight, her hair-band mysteriously disappears...

0:07:290:07:33

..a fact that's totally ruined Total Recall for me.

0:07:350:07:39

Colin Farrell is strapped into the futuristic

0:07:420:07:44

equivalent of the Central Line, and...aha!

0:07:440:07:48

That is not how you spell 'forecast'. It's not! It just isn't!

0:07:480:07:53

How's your relationship forecast, Matthew?

0:07:530:07:55

Patchy and cold.

0:07:550:07:57

OK, look at what new guy Marek's doing here,

0:08:010:08:05

and listen to Colin's advice...

0:08:050:08:07

Whoa, whoa! Don't hold it like that.

0:08:070:08:09

Hold it here.

0:08:090:08:11

If you hold it there and it shorts,

0:08:110:08:13

one of those bulbs will shoot straight through your hand.

0:08:130:08:16

But he flat out doesn't listen to him.

0:08:160:08:18

He's carried on doing exactly what he was doing!

0:08:180:08:21

God's sake, Marek.

0:08:210:08:22

Yeah, get it together, Marek.

0:08:220:08:24

I despair of Marek, sometimes. I really do.

0:08:240:08:27

What's truly scary about the Scary Movie franchise is that

0:08:320:08:36

they've made it to five.

0:08:360:08:37

Enough is enough.

0:08:370:08:39

OK, now look. Snoop is on Mac Miller's right

0:08:390:08:42

throughout the conversation.

0:08:420:08:44

-Crazy got to have been there.

-BLEEP.

0:08:440:08:46

Except now he's on his left!

0:08:460:08:48

I'm surprised they managed to get Snoop to say the sentences in order.

0:08:480:08:52

I don't think he was supposed to be in the film, he just turned up.

0:08:520:08:55

-SNOOP:

-I don't understand why the shampoo company can't fix that, man.

0:08:550:08:58

-Are you going to try out?

-Me?

0:09:010:09:03

Kendra's about to show off some of her dancing skills.

0:09:030:09:06

But, before that, it's a ventriloquism act.

0:09:060:09:08

-Look at her mouth as she says "Oh, food."

-Oh, food!

0:09:080:09:11

She's clearly not saying that.

0:09:110:09:13

In fact, I'm a certified lip reader.

0:09:130:09:16

She's saying, "Oh, gosh, why am I in this terrible, terrible film?"

0:09:160:09:20

Let me see that certificate.

0:09:200:09:22

It's Joe Wright's lacklustre

0:09:260:09:28

recent adaptation of Anna Karenina.

0:09:280:09:30

Morphine, anyone?

0:09:300:09:32

I know this is awful, but that is not the solution.

0:09:320:09:35

No, what I meant was, look at the label

0:09:350:09:37

on the morphine bottle.

0:09:370:09:38

See how it changes?

0:09:380:09:39

Here it's "la morphine", and later it's just "morphine"!

0:09:390:09:42

Why didn't you tell me, for God's sake?

0:09:490:09:51

It's the almost laughably bad, must-avoid Taken 2.

0:09:510:09:55

Time for a glass of wine!

0:09:550:09:57

Here's a bottle and two empty glasses.

0:09:570:09:59

-But she's OK, right?

-WOMAN:

-Yeah, she's OK.

0:09:590:10:02

Aaand without anyone touching them,

0:10:020:10:05

they're now drinking from them.

0:10:050:10:07

Scientific proof that Neeson is a boss.

0:10:070:10:10

Are you OK?

0:10:100:10:12

Domestic issues in the Mills household.

0:10:150:10:17

They can't even decide on what time of year it is.

0:10:170:10:21

Here Bryan talks of the upcoming fall break.

0:10:210:10:23

You're leaving on fall break next week.

0:10:230:10:25

This is the only time I can get to do this before I go to Istanbul.

0:10:250:10:29

But, a few days later,

0:10:290:10:30

Lenore's imminent spring break plans are cancelled.

0:10:300:10:33

We had this trip planned to China

0:10:330:10:36

for Kim's spring break as a family,

0:10:360:10:38

you know, to try and work things out.

0:10:380:10:40

I've been banned from attending either break.

0:10:400:10:43

In the whole of America?

0:10:430:10:45

Very much so.

0:10:450:10:47

Come on.

0:10:490:10:51

In this car chase, Neeson's got his car all dirty with food.

0:10:510:10:54

See the windscreen?

0:10:540:10:56

But look! Here - bang!

0:10:570:11:00

The dirt's gone.

0:11:000:11:02

Go a bit further,

0:11:020:11:03

and it's grubby again.

0:11:030:11:05

But also, rewind.

0:11:050:11:07

If there's one thing that can ruin a high-octane car chase, it's a

0:11:090:11:12

middle-aged woman ambling along at the same speed as the car.

0:11:120:11:15

This is great.

0:11:180:11:20

Here's Neeson, summoning the US Embassy on his sat-nav.

0:11:200:11:23

It's a remarkable feat,

0:11:230:11:24

given that he arbitrarily hammers away on entirely the wrong keys.

0:11:240:11:28

And look, it isn't even a British alphabet!

0:11:280:11:31

Never doubt the Neeson.

0:11:310:11:34

He does have a very specific set of skills.

0:11:340:11:36

You understand me?

0:11:360:11:38

Strap yourselves in, folks.

0:11:410:11:42

Another classic car chase.

0:11:420:11:45

But the taxi they're driving appears to be invincible.

0:11:450:11:48

The police car forces it to drive into some corrugated iron.

0:11:490:11:53

And we see, later on, some definite damage to the left side.

0:11:550:11:59

Move on a few moments, the damage has completely gone!

0:12:020:12:05

But wait!

0:12:050:12:06

Here's the rear window getting shot out.

0:12:080:12:10

-WOMAN:

-Dad!

0:12:120:12:13

It's back in the very next shot!

0:12:130:12:16

Yep, the car possesses a healing factor,

0:12:190:12:21

making some believe it's the love child

0:12:210:12:23

of Liam Neeson and Wolverine.

0:12:230:12:26

And that's your lot.

0:12:280:12:29

See you soon for some more...

0:12:290:12:31

ALL: Great Movie Mistakes!

0:12:310:12:34

Matthew Crosby, Ben Clark and Tom Parry from comedy group Pappy's expose all the hapless continuity errors, awful anachronisms and gaping plot holes from Hollywood in 2013.
