Filmmakers aren't perfect, so, every once in awhile, mistakes make the final cut. For whatever reason, these little slip-ups aren't seen or aren't fixed, and the end results are sometimes hilarious. While there are the glaring mistakes that can suck you right out of the movie-watching experience, most of them, especially the ones on this list, are just harmless little funny mistakes. They don't ruin the experience at all. In fact, they may even add to it. They become little side notes or pieces of trivia that make the next viewing that much more amazing.
There is definitely a certain type of movie watcher who will criticize movie mistakes as amateurish hack-jobs, but, for the most part, fans appreciate them for what they are: inconsequential blips. Most people and most lists point to continuity mistakes, which are available by the boatload, but we're going to try and avoid those ones as much as possible. At least, the continuity mistakes that we do include are so glaring that laughing about them is really the only reaction. Some of the mistakes on this list are funny editing mistakes like that, but many are even more ridiculous. The mistakes on this list are so big that the editors must have made a concerted effort not to notice them. Maybe time ran out and they just couldn't fix it, simply crossing their fingers and hoping that they wouldn't be noticed. But the Internet never sleeps. It will catch every mistake you ever make and it has. We've also tried to avoid low budget or obscure movies because there's no fun in pointing out and laughing at a mistake if you're never going to enjoy it again or the filmmakers are too broke to even feel good about making fun of them.
So, let's get right into the list. Here are 15 Ridiculous Movie Mistakes that Hilariously Made the Final Cut.
15 Bullet Holes – Pulp Fiction
14 Guitar From The Future – Back to the Future
13 Stop Sparkling Edward – Twilight: Eclipse
12 Wearing A Wire – Cobra
11 Is That A Seat In Your Pocket? – Harry Potter
10 Video Playback – Jurassic Park
9 Hiest Or Heist – The Dark Knight Rises
8 13th Century Cars – Braveheart
7 Time Travel Is Real – Dallas Buyers Club
6 Cowboys Of The Caribbean – Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
5 Why, Hello Mr. Cameraman – Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets
4 The Fresh Hand – Jurassic Park
3 Gas-Powered Chariot – Gladiator
2 Braindead Cameraman – Bad Boys
1 Changing Foods – Pretty Woman
Continuity mistakes happen in almost every film. People can nitpick all they like about someone's tie being tied differently in consecutive scenes, or hair dramatically changing in between shots, but we won't do that here. That being said, there are some changes can't be overlooked. Some changes are so mind-boggling you have to mention them if only for posterity's sake. In Pretty Woman, the mother of all continuity mistakes takes place. As the hooker (Julia Roberts) sits down for breakfast, she begins to enjoy a nice croissant. Look away, now back to her, she's eating a pancake. Before we address the inept editing crew, let's ask the question everyone at home is asking. Who the hell eats a pancake like that? Dry with no syrup or butter and with her hands. I get she's a prostitute, but she's not a savage. Use a fork for heaven's sake. Dress up your pancakes with the proper accoutrements. Lord, child, were you raised by wolves? Now look, I'm too angry to talk about the editing team.
